Looks like Pokemon aren't going to follow behind again

Now I'm inb4'ing all the people who are going to rage at how pointless of a feature it is to get upset over.

But it was still neat and made the bond with the Pokemon stronger. Disappointing that they would tease us with it in one game and not bring it back.

Because we can tell this feature isn't in the game from one minute of game footage.

Board moves fast. Like there isn't a hundred other pointless repetitive topics already.

It wasn't need and it didn't make any bond stronger. It just follows you around, big deal. There's no bond to be had because they executed it poorly. You just talk to it and get some text that it's bored or whatever. Maybe it had an item. No bond there. The reason it worked in Yellow and failed miserably in HGSS is because they focused on just one Pokemon and actually had all those different reactions. Seeing sad Pikachu when he's poisoned and listening to his sad cry actually starts to form something like a bond. Seeing a generic sad face icon above a sprite's head followed by the text "blahblah is poisoned" is not a bond at all. It's just telling you something you already knew.

And yeah, it is a pointless feature and it's better that they not have it at all if the alternative is something as poorly executed as HGSS's version. If they focused on just a few and did the Yellow thing again, then it would be good, but if it's just going to be an extra sprite following you all the damn time, they shouldn't (and thankfully, won't) bother.

Well, to be fair, I realized yesterday that there's actually a point in having the Pokémon follow the player: when a Pokémon is following he player, the game skips the Poké Ball throwing animation at the beginning of the battle and the Pokémon is sent right away. This saves some precious seconds that can make quite a difference in the long run.
