PokeGear Speculation Thread

Discussion in 'Pokémon Generation IV Discussion' started by Golde, May 10, 2009.

    This is a thread created to talk about the Pokegear, the popular device used by many trainers in Johto. Here, you can talk about upgrades/downgrades to the Pokegear in HG/SS, i.e., new upgrade cards, more radio stations, phone calls, etc.

    Have fun :)

    Well, obviously it'll be put on the touch Screen. Most likely, they'll replace the Map Card with the Marking Map. I suppose it's possible some Poketch Apps will be added to it.

    Also, do you remember the Friday Night Radio Show in Crystal, where it would announce a Pokemon, and you'd go to the Radio Tower to get points for prizes. Do you think they should add that to HG/SS?

    They'll probably mix the Pokétch and the PokéGear together with various apps and stuff. I also think it will be on the touch screen like the Pokétch was.

    I hated most of the Poketch, so I hope not. Some, like the Breeding app are useful, but mostly I hope those will just be add ons - none of the crap ones like flipping coin >_<.
    I hope they all stay - they're all wonderful.

    I really hope they bring back the Radio show thing.

    Here's what I'd like to see:
    • Bottom screen type functionality like the Poketch, but in full colour and high-res.
    • Phone with unlimited slots for all the trainers who want to add you.
    • "Do not disturb" option where you only receive important calls.
    • Combined TV/Radio setup, with all the usual radio stations, plus one or two TV stations you can pick up.
    • More apps; calculator, notepad, etc...

    Yay the pokegear is gonna look like the poketech!

    I think the Pokegear will surely have
    a Radio and a Calling device
    like how there is on the old games where you can call
    home,the professor and other trainers. :]

    Yuppirox hello

    Cool. Pokegear on touch screen. Well, mostly the calling function and Radio options will most likely be there. And other apps from Poketch too. Basically, a Pokegear+Poketch would do great for me.^^ It's a win-win to anyone, even if they never liked the Poketch or anything else...

    I don't want it to be anything like the Poketch. At all.

    The ones in Bold I agree with, but I don't want unlimited slots. I don't want to talk with trainers I hate, I just want my friends on there. I actually enjoy hearing how people are doing, though :)

    But not too many Aps, maybe, like, a calculator, but not too many. And one's a lot cooler than the Poketch Apps. And in color.

    I think it'll just be like the Poketch, except it'll have Match Call, a Radio, and a Map (which will probably require more than just the touch screen). What they could do, though, is make it like an iPhone or something and have a main menu, or let you select an app like normal. And I like the Do not disturb idea MetalMario suggested.

    The Match Call had "unlimited" space for trainers. You could have as many trainers registered to rebattle as there were programmed in the game. So I don't see why not just let you register every trainer that you can rebattle, even though the Vs. Seeker would be a lot better than this.

    I don't think they will implement such option. Mainly because sometimes you need to receive a call to be able to progress in the game's story, like at the beginning of the game. MAYBE they will allow you to block or delete some trainer's numbers if you don't want to receive spam calls from them.

    he said only important calls come through
    you basically said the same thing as him
    not a bad idea

    Here's something I'd like...I liked the radio station music, but I hated how when yous witched routes or did anything really it stopped...I think it should stay on until you hit a button that turns it off or something.

    And keep the daily station things promos, but add more stations.
  15. I'm hoping they'll keep the radio and the phone, just so it doesn't replace the Vs.Seeker. A few extra Poketch apps would be nice too.

    Why not both? Trainers registered in your phone would make significant progress with their teams, invite you to battles, and give you items (as in Crystal), while the other trainers could still be challenged with the VS Seeker but would only upgrade their teams by smaller levels and maybe evolutions.

    You would still receive important calls, like when Team Rocket takes over the Radio Tower, and maybe a few from Elm.

    There should also be some trainers in Kanto who want to add you to the phone. (And I don't just mean like Birdkeeper Jose on that new route which is tecnically part of Kanto.)

    And I would definitely like a Calculator, a Notepad, and a Counter that doesn't forget its value all the time.

    Marking Map also makes sense for easy catdog tracking, but IMO, they should only show up on it after you've seen them once, and be colour coded.

    Hmmm, people keep talking about the radio. The DSi does have the SD slot. Random thought would be nice if the radio played music from your SD card. (speaking of which, that could be used for extra boxes, recording videos if they keep some form of the recorder, etc. But those are for rant for other threads)

    Would also be nice if they added some pokegear device that gives some indication on a pokemons IV's. Remeber that guy on the frontier in emerald who did that?

    I'd personally love to see a mix between the Pokegear and the Poketch. This is how I believe the 4th Gen Pokegear will work:

    Digital Clock App
    Breeding Center App
    Pedometer App
    Phone App
    Radio App
    Friendship Checker App
    Berry Searcher App
    Marking Map App (doubles as Map as well).
    Move Checker App

    Feel free to disagree, but I think those were the ones I thought were most usable.

    I actually thought it would work better if you had that in the stat screen, itself. (As an upgrade you'd get at some point.) All your flawless IVs would be coloured gold, and your highest IV (if none are flawless) would be coloured red.

    If phone calls can't be turned off...

    Radio needs to be able to keep going after you exit the current map.

    A few of the less pointless poketch apps might be nice too, but part of me just wants one form the original.
