  1. What were you looking forward to in a Pokemon game, but didn't happen?

    Pokemon not following you again, or at least having the option.

    And actual pokemon sprites for surf/fly/cut etc

    Game features that were introduced in the past and could have been preserved (with some improvements) in later generations with no repercussions to gameplay, but were removed instead.

    Pokemon Contests becoming more like their anime counterpart.

    Like what?
    The only thing I can think of is the pokemon following you thing.

    zozo SLIMED!

    The pokemon in White Forest (The grass disappears if you don't connect to another game or get to it in time? Seriously? SERIOUSLY? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?)

    Johto's Safari zone (You have to log in every day for over a month with the correct number of items in a certain type of terrain to make a d*** Gible appear? You're kidding this time, right? RIGHT?!?!)

    Easy/Challenge mode (The modes are game-specific? And you can't unlock them until you beat the game? And if you want to use them at the beginning you have to connect to games that already have them? Seriously? WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?!?!?!)

    That, and the contests in Gen III along with the ribbon system to provide some sort of unique reward to each Pokemon, Safari Zone, Game Corner, Pokéathlon, Secret Base (Underground) along with the collection of furniture and Pokedoll you could collect and decorate the bases with.

    If they're good enough to be in the game, why not keep it that way? If they're not so good to begin with, why bother with changing features every generation if at the end of the day, they won't be improved and preserved much like how the main game's battle mechanics have evolved over the years?

    The games has always been unfair. You can't make the decisions for Junichi Masuda.

    It isn't something I was looking forward, but... When Serebii told us that there was an item to increase the odds of finding shinies, I was really happy... and then he told us that you needed to catch almost every freaking Pokémon to put your hands on the said item. Really, GF? To the hell with this 'catch 'em all' crap.

    Masuda doesn't decide everything, just for your information. :p

    Let's be happy we only need to obtain non event Pokemon :/

    There is nothing 'lucky' on having to catch 600+ Pokémon. I don't even have a Generation 3 Pokémon game anymore to help me on the task.

    I actually edited my post with happy instead, my fault!

    Well said, my man. I totally forgot about the bases and the underground, those things were really fun.

    I was really hoping they would bring the Pokewalker back... I love walking with my Pokemon. :(

    Yes, this along with Square Enix's refusal to make versus 13 and a Kingdom Hearts game on the PS3 has caused me to lose almost all faith in Japanese game developers.

    It's not really so much a shell, plus Salamence would be even scarier. D:

    Considering how these things would be nothing but gunk on the inside, probably the best idea that they don't. Yeah caterpillars and such rearrange their molecular structure.

    deoxysdude94 Just bought a Switch :D


    SHELGON. with shell smash really? Salamence would become the strongest pokemon ever, it would be banned from Uber if it was possible. It wasn't given it for a reason.

    Quiver Dance would be a much better option for them and Swords Dance for Beedrill.

    Yeah that was never going to happen, maybe in a spin-off game but not for the Core games.

    You don't need the Generation 3 games since the GTS and the 4th gens games will give you the missing pokémon.

    When did the Pokéwalker leave?

    As far I am aware you can still use them and walk with pokémon from the Johto remake.

    Don't be so ignorant by judging all Japanese developers by SquareEnix standards.

    I wanted to see a more sinister vampire bat species in the pokemon world, a dark/flying type, and maybe even a bedbug-based pokemon.
    I can understand not putting the bat in Unova, but not making a bedbug for a region based off of NYC? COME ON NOW!
