Wouldn't it be better if Pokemon had Active Time Battles?

I wrote a piece for the official magazine which questioned why people continually ask Pokémon to change genres, but never do for other game series like Mario, Zelda & CoD

Probably because of the backlash against turn-based RPGs lately (they're seen as "archaic"), as well as a lot of those people being more familiar with Pokemon through the anime than the games.

Real time? Meh.
Maybe the ability to chain commands, add a dodge command, and show battles more cinematic like.

It's still an RPG.


Yes, but you're changing its genre still from Turn-based RPG to Real-time RPG and that is still a genre change


There seems to be an aversion to the idea of turn-based RPGs. I don't understand why.

Nah, it'd change too much.

I'd love it as a side-game: XIII is my favorite PS3 game.
