Mount System replacing HM's? I certainly hope so!

I mean I still hope they keep Surf, but I hope this mount system means I no longer have to waste any of my precious 4 move slots on an HM.

Need a boulder removed or rock smashed? Just mount a Metagross. Need to fly? Just mount a Hydreigon/Golurk!

I'd be okay with this. You'd still need strong pokes for moving boulders or flight-capable for flying etc. but you wouldn't have to waste move-slots on this stuff.

And then there's the workhorses. Would Mew still be a fix-all? Would Bidoof? Arceus? TROPIUS?! Tropius almost definitely, but still.

I agree it makes a lot of sense, plus it always bothered me that I could mount a Spearow, and it could easily fly me across the region. This pretty much fixes all my problems. Did you see the size of that goat?

Surf and Waterfall should become tutor moves then because they're actually decent. Strength and Rock Climb weren't bad either.

Agreed. Why not use their stats and physical characteristics for this? If a Pokemon is big enough, it can be ridden. Its speed will govern how fast you go. If it can swim and is big enough, you can surf it. If it's big enough and can fly... you get the picture.

Rock Smash could be limited to Pokemon with a certain Attack/Sp. Atk stat. So many ways to get rid of the absurdly outdated HM system.

Or, you know, TMs.

First games in a generation never have Move Tutors aside from starter-only moves and Draco Meteor. And since TMs do the same thing...

I honestly think there shouldn't have been any new Move Tutors in BW2 (they could have expanded the TM list, since TMs were no longer tradable), but whatever.

The only reason I said TMs is because I don't think they've ever wasted TM slots on old moves.

These could just become TM's. Like Rock Smash became an HM. I mean its not like TM's can be used up anymore.

Rock Smash and Flash. Not to mention the multitude of old moves made into TMs in the fourth gen.

I think gamefreak is trying to avoid the paradox of forgetting a Pokémon move while you still need to use it (ie while surfing having your Pokémon forget surf).
