How I'm imagining it, is that it's kind of the same by having 6 in the party, and pokemon having abilities, etc. but when you send out a pokemon, you take full control of the pokemon, moving the pokemon in the 3D battlefield, using the pokemon's moveset mapped into buttons, do some normal attacks and dodging, that kind of stuff.

I know double battles wouldn't work, but it's a spin-off anyways, maybe it can be done in multiplayer.

and of course, you can still switch pokemon, and use items, kinda like the main games, but different battle gameplay, also, since it's a spin-off, it's not necessary to get gym badges or catch all pokemon, there could be any other objectives the developers wish to put.

can you imagine it? and would you buy it? if you think the gameplay can be done differently please share your ideas.

Maybe, I guess. I'd need way more details. It sounds like something that could be cool if done well, but could also end up falling flat on its face if expectations weren't met.
Human beings are just so damn interesting!

That's the sort of thing I've been wanting for years, though I pictured it in more of Smash Bros side-view style. Still, I would be completely okay with this. Instant purchase.

I'd actually buy it. I have thought of being able to directly control some pokemon before. I don't care who'd develop it - most spin offs aren't made by Gamefreak.

This doesn't interest me at all personally, but it couldn't do any worse commercially or critically than a horse-racing/solitaire game.

I want this. I want it so bad.

The problem is, is it really feasible? There are so many factors and so many possible move combinations and so many different Pokemon, I don't know if there's any system that has the memory needed for such a game to exist.

I would love it. Never been that big of a fan of turn based.

Bought. Didn't read through the entire OP, but if it's a spin-off game and not the main series, then I'm fine with GF experimenting with different genres.

Pokemon Zelda? That sounds awesome...
