What this game must do to be the greatest pokemon game. #2

#1pikachupwnagePosted 1/14/2013 7:33:51 PM(edited)
I have many ideas for what this game should do. Don't worry I am a lifelong fan and know my pokemon. I won't suggest triple types, or something awful like that. It doesn't HAVE to do these things to be the best but they certainly could help.

#2 Continue the greater focus on story and characters

Black and white were great. I loved how they actually questioned the morality of raising pokemon and also how gym leaders were actual characters. They had occupations and hobbies outside the gym and they helped fight against team plasma.. And I liked the little conflict between bianca and her father and her uncertainty on what she wanted to do. Etc.

Black 2 continued this and we learned more about N. The memory link in BW2 helped flesh out the gym leaders more and so on.

I wouldn't call it a timeless masterpiece of a story or anything but its a improvement from before and a step in the right direction.

I hope they take this further and really flesh out the gym leaders/rivals/evil team leader in this and attempt for a lot of depth or meaning in the story.

I'd personally like to seem more smaller things you can do, like more side quests to get different items and such, not just going to a place and being handed the item you desperately want. And give side quests a bit of a story on their own, similar to the anime. Just a thought of course, but that would make my day

I used to be a Vault Dweller like you, until my dad left the vault and I had this sudden urge to travel all over the Capital Wasteland to find him.

Pikachu, there will always be people who are not satisfied. I am usually in the majority that is satisfied, so gamefreak will be getting money off me.

More fleshed out sidequests would be nice. Give each sidequest its own story.

I liked the stranger house. The implications that darkrai killed that girl are pretty disturbing and its quite a creepy place.

The side quests is a good idea also. I hope they do continue with the story like element that they had with the B&W series.

Oh I am rather satisified with pokemon. Doesn't mean we can't discuss improvements that can be made.

I don't normally pay attention to the story, because it's always evil team is trying to do something. N's story aspects were quite a bit more interesting. I also liked the "figure it out yourself" style Gen 1 gave Mewtwo. Basically, I like the sub-plots that aren't talked about by every single NPC in the game. Stuff you just stumble on and are like "Wait, what?"

Beyond that, all I need are some minor tweaks to mechanics (IV's, breeding, selling more than one item to maniacs), and a better flowing region (caves and forests don't have to be a hard stop between themselves and cities). Mt. Silver, Fortree City, and Victory Road in B2/W2, are what I consider examples of good region flow, but even they could be improved.

I like Monster Rancher.

Gymleaders have always had occupations outside there gym.>.> (not all but they have )
Gen V just points it out and everyone seems to think it wis the only case.
They also had there own personalities (with some exeptions Tate and Lisa)
