#1. More battle options/formats (E/Pt/HGSS): Emerald and Gen IV provided an excellent array of bonus challenges in the form of the Battle Frontiers; Gen IV also gave us many wifi battle options, such as level 100 battling, etc. that Gen V has inexplicably not brought back.

#2. Join Avenue (B2W2): I'm not surprised this has appeared in many people's lists - Join Avenue provided a way to obtain a wide variety of rare items and unprecedented services, with careful management. It's also as close to a shopping district/mall as the games get, and would fill out the regional metropolis really well. For further expansion, I'd like to see an electronics shop selling other regions' "devices", clothes and décor (see below) shops, a Game Corner (not likely, but see Raffles), specialist breeders that you can delegate IV and shiny breeding to for lots of time and money, and finally artisans that can synthesise items for a fee to create new items.

#3. An extensively customisable home (RSE/DPPt/BWB2W2): A more aesthetically-pleasing base of operations than your hometown, and one you'd want to visit more often. Options for berry gardens, private dojo, jukebox with other games' tunes, personal customisable wild Pokémon area... I also think this is better suited for character cameos than gym leader rematches and the like - professors/antagonists/story NPCs as well as trainers could appear, characters can both be battled (if trainers) and give away personal, fan-servicey trivia, etc.

#1 this is kinda two things but im counting it as one. time of day, and seasons. i want more drastic effects on pokemon with these. seasons where fun, but really it only seemed to affect a handful of pokemon on a handful of routes, and then winter was the only season that seemed differ from the rest. so my thought is have each season have a couple "this season only" pokemon and then others get altered rates depending on the season, if they show up there at all during that season. and same with time of day. some pokemon should not show up during certain times of the day, but really common other times. and then go one step further, we have like three abilities on most pokemon, maybe certain seasons/time of day sees a higher chance of a certain pokemon with a certain ability.

#2 secret bases. bring them back, and expand. have an area where you can release a few pokemon from the pokeball in your secret base. make it so you can eventually earn a pokecenter machine. make your base flyable to. maybe even have a garden area where you can grow some berry plants. add more cuztimization, and spot pass/streetpass and make it so you can find peoples secret base and battle them in it. maybe even be able to post a pokemon your looking for, and what your willing to trade for it. it be an awesome feature returned.

#3 game keys. difficulty modes, special caves, but make them saved to your system so you can start a new game with them. and then make more. lets see dex keys, that change the wild pokemon in kalos, maybe even some keys that change which gen starters you get to choose from. really if made free or really cheap this would be what i want for dlc. little ways to make another play through different. it be fun to be able to play through a region with some pokemon found earlier, or to play through kalos but filled with hoenn pokemon in the wild instead.

Secret bases

Easier hidden abilities (or at least hidden grottos only ever having Pokémon in them).

SoulSilver-style Pokémon following.

Oh man, secret bases. I forgot how amazing those were. I remember hiding myself off in Ruby at some crazy hidden location that you had to have Surf for, and maybe Rock Smash as well. None of my friends ever found me!

Hoenn confirmed.

To echo a couple major ones: Secret Bases and Pokemon following behind like HGSS, and also Ball Capsules/the Apricon balls (custom exits are nice).

Secret Bases - With more items like game consoles.

Battle Frontier - This was awesome post game in Emerald, and having something to do after you beat the main story is nice.

PWT - Owning gym leaders from other regions and seeing their teams was nice.

I can't wait to ignore the CoroCoro leaks (except maybe the type chart.) I want everything in this game to be as much as a surprise as possible, just like when I was 9 years old.
