Totally agree on 2. ORAS only added a few tutors to make up for the lost TMs, so come on guys...stop saving those for the follow up game(s). AT LEAST LET US HAVE THE PUNCHES FROM THE START
for 4, i would be highly surprised if they don't bring back N. He's had time to travel and bond with pokemon and BW2 shows he's not objecting to fighting with his friends.
also he';s like super popular
making pokeballs again with the berrys
I hope their a way to evolve certain pokemon that evolve into aloha pokemon into their normal form, just incase someone wants to use the regular executor or marrowak...
Apricorn balls! YES! Would love to see that again!
Personally, I'd love to see all the previous rivals, gym leaders, and champions return in the battle tree. I'm hoping it's just not "popular characters." (Cynthia, Red, Blue, etc.)
Maybe evem maxie and archie will be in battle tree.
Its possible, I dont think they were labeled as criminals and on the run or anything towards the end like Cyrus, Ghetsis, or Giovanni. Though it would be cool if any of them were available too. I'm still holding on to some hope that Colress is involved with the Aether Foundation.
I'm on the fence about having Gyms back. I like the idea of having something different this time around. For an Episode Delta like post-game, as long as we don't have a forced capture like we did with Rayquaza I'd love it. I can see the post-game being centred around Zygarde which I'd be okay with provided it was a good story and, again, not a forced capture.
Exactly. If N is not back with a 3D Sprite and if I can't battle alongside him I will kill GF.
7.8 - Too Much Fangirling!
But I am hoping we get a more substantial cast of ally NPCs. In Platinum there was quite a few even though they were more for testing the waters of 2x2 battles in the wild. (Then Gen V went full throttle.) Personally, I'm a sucker for those girls with glasses, so Malva, Lorelei and of course that thicc Wicke would be cool to pair up with. We already know Cynthia's available, Cynthia's always available. I don't think there's another strong female character in Pokémon quite as revered as Cynthia, maybe Misty or Iris. But yeah, give us more Malva!
As far as the Move Tutors go... You know what Game Freak's going to do already (especially you R_N!). We've seen it so many times now. Draco Meteor, Pledges and the Elemental Hyper Beams. That's what you get.
Another minor hope of mine is the Pokemon League's Victory Road being MASSIVE. I mean, its an entire mountain, technically..
Agree on this. I hope it will be with lots of strong trainers which will really test you out and I hope that it will make much use of the poke-ride options.
I can also see gyms happening as a post-game possibility. GF said their would be no gyms, and they indeed aren't there, but they never said they can't be made throughout the storyline
