Yeah, well at least I can grow a beard.

You all think you have? great ideas for Pokemon
games, but if I actually listened totall of yiou and we
combined all of your ideas in a game, it would be an
unplayable monstrosity. Emu want a game flith all the
regions, but only the first generatiion Pokemons, yet
all the legendary ones and such silly', things. Whenever
I receive one of these : nts, I go tel the development
floor and read it out loud to all the/ Game Freak em-
players in a mocking voice, and wtill laugh at you."

I commissioned this and sent it to them in the hopes they would use it as an idea for a possible evo chain. There is no Ice/Steel chain, nor enough hedgehog pokemon... Hopefully they didn't make fun of me.

Thumb me down for not going through all of this threads replies? Ok asshole. I was simply making a suggestion. Plus I don't care what the mash-up of the name means, if you sent it to them, they probably would have changed the name for the same reason had they decided to use it.

Haha! Humorous! I Absolutely love Absolatte. At least it's a moderately funny comment regarding their names.

I usually get stuff like "Hurr durr arctiquil is the same as quilava" OR "Absolate is just like Absol, but with 'ate' at the end."

Absolate = Absolute + Plate (armor); in case anyone was wondering.

>quad weak to fighting
>quad weak to fire
it's like a cooler version of aggron
User avatar #227 to #75 - thesinful (09/07/2013) [-]
Cool but fire and fighting are both gonna wreck that. Given that there's 3 starters with that combo and how incredibly common fighting is... yeah.
User avatar #310 to #227 - plumphat (09/07/2013) [-]
I wish they would dive into more of the untapped type combos. Besides, I prefer pokemon that aren't overpowered. Beating someone while at an extreme disadvantage is more satisfying than wrecking with OP legendaries.
User avatar #388 to #310 - thesinful (09/07/2013) [-]
I'm still hoping the gen VI starters are grass/dark, fire/psychic, and water/fighting. All three combos are extremely rare. A fighting/flying would also round out flying's set. And I can understand preferring not to use legendaries since I usually don't use them either. Though if Zekrom got a better move pool, I'd use him all day. However, as much as I like Aggron, it's highly unlikely I'd use it competitively. Though rock/steel is worse than ice/steel. You might find a team without fire, you'll never find one without ground. Earthquake is far too awesome.

Guess it's all up to tastes. Ice is too much of a glass cannon for me to use it in most instances. Ice moves yes, ice pokemon no. Steel/dragon would be interesting but it's likely be a gamebreaker. Only two weaknesses and neither for 4x damage.
User avatar #391 to #388 - plumphat (09/07/2013) [-]
Yeah, if those aren't the starters, I'd be pretty disappointed.

And I'm right there with you as far as strategy is concerned. Ice is my favorite type by far. Sucks that really only the moves are useful as too many of the pokemon can be one shot. I created this one since my first 2 favorite types are ice and steel. I love tanky bastards.

User avatar #1 - sanguinesolitude (09/07/2013) [-]
open world rpg, 3d graphics, no making two versions to get all the pokemon. Ability to create your own character. set quests like skyrim, but each one leading to a new gym to beat, and obviously concluding in the pokemon league. some fun side quests for context and to flesh out the world.

that is all. Put whatever pokemon you want but please include all original 150 plus any others you might want, when it comes right down to it we do not care. This isnt rocket science, but the cost to develop is much higher than yet another pokemon red clone. Dont act like you cant do it, you have endless money at your fingertips and successful awesome rpgs have been around forever. look at goddamn final fantasy. You are just being a dick because it makes you more money.

A combination of all these ideas if great for the final game, but pokemon isn't anywhere near done
User avatar #4 to #1 - formerlyaceseleven **User deleted account** (09/07/2013) [-]
and pokemon battles you can 1: send out any pokemon in your party to battle first and 2: the battle system, instead of turn by turn strategy you could utilize a set area that your pokemon can move around in and you take control of the pokemon utilizing its attacks like an FPS but still keeping the 4 move limit.

thats becoming ridiculous.

And also make it more legitimate strategic battling, so pokemon are actually using proper sets and balanced teams and none of this monotype ******** where they pick a move at random.

If Pokemon had graphics like Skyrim, with an open world to explore, hundreds of NPCs and good voice-acting rather than dialogue that must be read, then I would seriously consider playing it.

#146 to #119 - sanguinesolitude (09/07/2013) [-]
you can have you ice cream cones and garbodors, the gen one pokemon are still the best. It represents a time before they ran out of ideas and were like... what if we made one look like a dream catcher? we will name it sigilyph

gen two was decent and its all downhill from there

No, you're a fan that clearly thinks the newer gens are bad because they're not your old, nostalgic Pokemon and now you're trying to prove yourself by making up **** excuses
User avatar #304 to #299 - sanguinesolitude (09/07/2013) [-]
newer gens are worse, not bad. dude you are so butthurt. Classic pokemon is definitely better, not sure how you can even argue that isnt the case.

The new ones are good, just not as good. So if you are going to make a game do the originals, and then add new ones if you want more. Like if you are going to do a star wars game use the original series and build from there.

Heres a question for you. If they make a game, why would you want the originals not included?
User avatar #329 to #304 - mysticpichu (09/07/2013) [-]
describe how the classic pokemon games are better, without using personal opinions.
User avatar #337 to #329 - sanguinesolitude (09/07/2013) [-]
I didnt say the classic games, i said the classic pokemon. you know, the pocket monster animals themselves. Can you people not read?

"Put whatever pokemon you want but please include all original 150 plus any others you might want,"
a guy replied
""must include at least the original 150" ******* genwunner. its the worst gen hands down so **** off"

I disagreed because i feel the best pokemon were the original 150.

Obviously the first games werent as good as the latest games, but you know what would have made black and white a lot better? being able to catch Charizard and magikarp and psyduck.
User avatar #357 to #337 - mysticpichu (09/07/2013) [-]
but you can obtain them through trading. being able to catch everything takes away a lot of the challenge.

and just because the first 150 are the ones you grew up with, doesn't mean the others are bad.
User avatar #319 to #304 - scytherkris (09/07/2013) [-]
"dude you are so butthurt."
You don't understand what butthurt means, you just wanted to say it so you'd sound clever

In any case the old gens were terrible compared to new gens, Red and Blue were god awful games, Gold and Silver are the only reasons why Pokemon games are so popular now
No proper Pokemon fan in their right mind can hate on the new generation because there's nothing wrong with it

Comparing Star Wars and Pokemon doesn't work because all of the Star Wars films were good, not all Pokemon games were good, generation 1 (R/B/Y) and generation 4 (D/P/Plt) were terrible
If you're making a game based on something that already exists you want to base it on the good things, not the bad things that people sugar coat with nostalgia
User avatar #341 to #319 - sanguinesolitude (09/07/2013) [-]
I wasnt hating the new generation, thats what you dont get. You are reading hatred into it. All i said was please include original and then whatever new gen ones you want. You have turned this into me hating all newer generations. I never said make the gameplay like gen 1. I said use those pokemon. I said you were butthurt, not to be clever, but because you have basically raged over nothing. I like the original pokemon and want them in any new game. All other pokemon would make that game even better. I dont see why you dislike the original pokemon, not the game. You are offended over a trivial matter that exists mostly in your head, thats kinda textbook butthurt. If you read the person i was replying to, i referred only to the pokemon themselves, not to the early games being better.

pokemon yellow was a sweet game. New games have better gameplay, because they are newer and have better technology, not because they have better pokemon. I am sorry if it offends you that i want a Charizard and Gyardos while i am playing white. I just wish they would include all the pokemon. This fact seems to annoy you.
User avatar #346 to #341 - scytherkris (09/07/2013) [-]
Except this isn't raging in any definition of the word...

Also how can you I don't like the original Pokemon when my username has "Scyther" in it?
And you can use Charizard and Gyarados in White, it's called trading, a fundamental part of Pokemon that Nintendo and Game Freak want to keep very much alive by not putting every single Pokemon into one game, that's the whole reason as to why they make two versions of each game
User avatar #351 to #346 - sanguinesolitude (09/07/2013) [-]
i dont have friends who like pokemon
how am i supposed to get them?

I feel like they could make it online and then you can trade with others. But I dont want to trade for pokemon, I want to catch them all. Ash made me sing Gotta Catch Em All. and he doesnt trade for pokemon. Professor Oak didnt send me out to trade for pokemon. Obtaining one through trading is like going out to hunt a deer, and instead you buy hamburger meat from the grocery store. Totally not the same experience. There is no connection to the pokemon, no struggle to get it, no satisfying click as the pokeball sits still on the 3rd rock. When i listen to the theme song, there is no mention of trading your pets for other peoples pets. I mean if your friend has a dog you like, do you just give him your dog, who you rescued from a shelter and have raised and trained? It seems fundamentally against what they were all about in the series.

But you seem to not want the first 150 in a game, and i still don't understand why. Maybe its just nostalgia, but i want my goddamn pokemon in my game :p. is that so much to ask?
User avatar #355 to #351 - scytherkris (09/07/2013) [-]
I don't think they meant "Gotta catch 'em all" in the literal sense seeing as they put trading in the game in the first place, plus online trading is possible, in the newer gens

The old Pokemon have gotten boring and overused, I'd rather find a new Rock type Pokemon in a mountain rather than the same old Geodude and Zubat, it adds variety to the games
User avatar #392 to #355 - sanguinesolitude (09/07/2013) [-]
you see two versions to facilitate trading. I see two versions to force you to buy multiple copies and increase their overall sales. I see it as a cruel tactic, not a benefit to the consumer. Giving less is never better.

like i said i dont want just gen 1. Ideally all pokemon get included. its not like they need to be 3d modeled for open world play. have them still appear with random encounters. this drastically lowers the animation cost of the game. graphics should be charming but dont need to be excessive. it was an animated show afterall, noone is expecting stunning realistic trees.

User avatar #409 to #408 - bladeboy (09/08/2013) [-]
No. You said they ran out of ideas. I think the pokemon just got better, I like Gen 2 because of what you can do in it, not because of the pokemon.
User avatar #410 to #409 - sanguinesolitude (09/08/2013) [-]

tauros i think is just fine since they are based on animals.

i agree with the electrode and voltorb. Though i would argue it is more likely the pokeball was modeled after them, since one assumes the pokemon came before the pokeball.

magnemite ok
dit.. well its a blob because it can become anything but i see your point.
User avatar #259 to #146 - sanguinesolitude (09/07/2013) [-]
to clarify the hate. I said please include the original 150 and the later ones, but definitely the originals. I dont hate the later ones, i just think classic pokemon have to be in any game you make.

it would be like having an xmen game and having all the new xmen, but no wolverine or cyclops... I mean the new ones are cool, but dont forget the classics.

We can already create our own character in XY, we have character creation.
We also have 3D graphics in XY, it's pretty openworld too.
Not two versions is retarded since a lot of the pokémon franchise centres around trading and interaction between players.
There has always been some types of sidequests, BW2 had tons of them.

Almost all of what you said is already in XY, plus more.
User avatar #124 to #27 - snowshark (09/07/2013) [-]
What they've done with X and Y really pushes the boundaries and it alone would sell the 3DS to me. But we should never be fully contented because then people get complacent.

I would still like to see a less linear storyline to the game and a far larger game-world, but these things I am sure will come with time as the boundaries of what handheld consoles can do expand.

Other features I'd enjoy would be actually having relationships with other characters in the game. The best part of it is that the main characters are kids meaning the relationships don't have to be mature. Boyfriend/Girlfriend/Rival/friend/enemy. Say you have a GF character and another character comes in and you either accept/reject their advances on wanting to be your partner and then the other finds out and...

You get what I'm saying here. Plus, since all disputes can be handled with pokemon battles there's nothing so final as death and disputes can come back again and again.

I'm just a stickler for story and most of the pokemon games thusfar have followed the same formula of. "Become pokemon master, defeat villains, beat elite 4, profit." I'd like to see more variety in what we can do storywise and I trust Gamefreak enough that I think these ideas are already being considered.

The future of pokemon is looking good.

THe boundraries of what? The andheld pokemon series? yes. But it does NOT push the boundraries of what games nowadays actually can do what so ever.

fair enough. I guess the only ridiculous request i have is that they open it up to other platforms, which will never happen.

I feel that with a large enough game item trading will still happen without the need to artificially limit it by making some pokemon inexplicably uncatchable. I guess I always forget the Pokemon slogan "Gotta Catch em Most, and Then Trade for the Others"

make a pokemon online MMORPG with all regions.

or make a comic in this style telling me why that is ********
#42 to #38 - chaosnazo (09/07/2013) [-]
Already said why it can't have all regions, the level-scaling would be ****** up.
When you would have arrived in Jotho, your pokémon would have been level 40-60 and you would just meet Pidgeys, Rattatas, Hoothoots and sentrets in level 2-4.

A pokémon-mmo would also be very cramped and they would need LOTS of servers, due to the sheer amount of people playing it.

An MMO like that would also be the end of the franchise, beacuse when many people already have bought it, sales would die, the only solution is expansion-packs or monthly fees. Do you really want monthly fees?
The upgraded quality between "updates" like between Ruby/Saphire and Diamond/Pearl would be very small, you would never have a fresh new game to start with and the MMO would be cruel to beginners.


And at last
Nintendo's portable consoles couldn't have run it beacuse it would be too demanding for it's hardware and it could not be on a home-console or PC since since it's POCKET MONSTERS and not pc-monsters or homeconsolemonsters.

i would glady pay a monthly fee for a pokemon rpg so i can play with friends everywhere.
just kidding i dont have friends in real life
And u will need a big map for a pokemon RPG, so more then 1 region sounds like a good deal..who gives a **** that u will find a low lvl in a different region.

U should be able to choose your own starting region (kanto for me) and be able to move to other regions...BUT...it should be realy hard to move to other regions, like u have to pay a ******** of money or have to surf a long time.

And keep it a little old skool, no shiny's or mega evolutions for me plz.
Also, no legendary's, cuz then everybody ends up with the same team.

#46 to #45 - chaosnazo (09/07/2013) [-]
>who gives a **** that u will find a low lvl in a different region.
People who actually wants the game to be challenging throughout and not just at the end of a region.
Also if you want to fix it by releasing all your pokémon at the start of each region, why not just play the original pokémon-games in order?

>And keep it a little old skool, no shiny's or mega evolutions for me plz.. Also, no legendary's, cuz then everybody ends up with the same team.


Are you ******* kidding me?
Shiny pokémon has been here since gen 2
If you want to have it old school like that you must also take away abilities, the seperation between special attack and special defense, night and day, Physical/special split of attack, seasons, double, triple and rotation battles, more animations, the bag not always being full, berries and everything pictured.

Plenty pokémon are also more viable than most legendaries, have you even heard of OU?.


What you want is not pokémon, it's a monster-catching MMO.
Pokémon is not that.
#155 to #38 - jinkazama (09/07/2013) [-]
Reach level 100 with a team. Then what?

No gear to grind for. No cosmetics to grind for. No point in trading when everything has to be available to everyone. PVP unbalanced as **** due to tiers not being made by nintendo. PVP being unavailable to people who don't spend hundreds of hours breeding and then EV training.

What about legendaries? If everyone can get them it ruins the point of being legendary. If nobody can then it's not the same.

Turn based combat is a ******* terrible idea for an MMO, anything else and you can say goodbye to a big chunk of fans along with any competitive PVP.

MMO likely means players replace trainers in the wild. Most XP is lost due to that, meaning monotonous grind is the only way of levelling.

A pokemon MMO would be down to 10% of its playerbase after the first month. It would be a ******* terrible idea. You have no ******* idea how an MMO works, so please refrain from giving out these "ideas".
User avatar #156 to #155 - lotengo ONLINE (09/07/2013) [-]
if u dont like it dont do it.

U can fix the reach lvl 100 team by making it realy hard to lvl up, or allow pokemon to keep getting stronger.

I would just love a Pokemon MMO and i'm glad somebody is taking a shot at it

"if you don't like it don't do it."
Are you ******* serious? Not a single point i made was subjective. Opinion is not part of it. A pokemon MMO would be awful from a design perspective, it would lack any reason for players to come back, and MMOs are expensive as **** to make, so a niche game is never an option.

Pokemon is repetitive as **** already. making it harder to get to level 100 is just adding unnecessary grind and is a terrible idea. It also further pushes away those who want to play for PVP.

Allow them to keep getting stronger and then PVP is literally impossible. It's no longer a pokemon game, and it would discourage any collection aspect of the game. So basically you're left with a pokemon game where collection and PVP are not options for the majority of players. So it's not worth playing.

Have you got any experience whatsoever with MMOs? They fail constantly. "it sounds cool" is not grounds for spending millions of dollars on a project that flat out can't work because of problems that stick out hugely.
User avatar #196 to #163 - lotengo ONLINE (09/07/2013) [-]
Actually u just posted a list of opinions.

I would love a game like the vid i posted. I think its fan made and i dont care if it costs anybody millions of dollars, i want to play that.

Sorry for me not being an MMO expert, the only MMO i played for a year or so was Runescape. I liked it and a Pokemon MMO that takes as much efford to lvl up sounds pretty cool to me. And i think there are ways to make it work.

U obviously dont like the idea so u dont have to play it. Live and let live bro, just let me have my dream.

#125 - ghostofgemini (09/07/2013) [-]
There's a reason he makes the games and you people don't

>You want all the regions?
>>>that'd take forever to make in current gen graphics, be huge on data, and they'd have to sell it for more to be worth it (you're essentially getting several games). Not to mention, the progression would be weird as **** . In HG/SS you beat the E4 at ~40, then at ~55-60 again. Try to make it for several times over. And don't say 'start fresh at every region', it makes no sense gameplay wise.

>New pokemon designs suck
>>> That's an opnion, I think they're pretty good. Also, all regions had silly designs. Get your head out of your nostalgia ass and you may be able to see that. Seriously, the original 151 aren't any more special than the others.

>Don't like new gameplay mechanics? ex: mega-evos, fairy type, etc.
>>> You're essentially asking to make into Call Of Duty then. The series was due for some fresh life into it, and I think X/Y brings us everything we need. They wouldn't do it if they thought it was a terrible idea. They haven't dissapointed thus far, have they?

>Pokemon bank cost $.
>>>True, and it sucks. $5 a year won't kill you tho, and if it does, don't use it. It prob cost alot to run the servers for however millions of people using it.

A blu ray disc has 1TB of storage on it. Can you explain to me why Nintendo couldn't have simply caught up with the times made a console to support this technology, and created a console RPG where you start off in one region of your choice play out a story (generic one that spans over any region) and then when you complete that task go explore the other regions effectively starting the game over just like Ash does in the anime? The only pokemon he ever keeps is Pikachu...if you want to you can keep all your **** , or you can start over and have a good challenge. **** you don't even really need a story for Pokemon so it wouldn't even need all of that. Would it take forever? Yes, but wouldn't people buy it? After all they all "want" this game so badly...so badly that some people I dare day actually are trying to make it via an emulator. The company has the cash to do it, and the time it would take is probably a lot less than you might think. Especially considering in the original G/S you could go back through the first region of the game. This was on the same format granted, but it took up the same amount of space. IF Nintendo would get modernized, and IF they would simply take the time, they could easily do it considering it has essentially been handed to them. **** they could possibly do it on the DS now since all the maps have been updated via HG/SS. The cost would not out weigh the benefit on their part. Granted some ideas they get are stupid, and I agree all pokemon are awesome NOT just gen 1. I mean **** guys...Muk was a puddle of **** , and Voltorb/Electrode were ******* pokeballs....yet you all bitch about ice cream and candles?

User avatar #141 to #138 - maybeimalion (09/07/2013) [-]
I just don't see HOW it is impractical. Literally someone just remade two Kingdomhearts games for the PS3 from scratch because they knew they had the market for it....two games people have already paid for, beaten the **** out of, and then went back nostalgia sake years ago. They did this because people wanted it. People clearly want this...they have everything already made out for them. This is just bad business end of story. If they have "limitations" on "technology" then use that as an excuse...make each region a separate game...and then make a **** ton of ******* money selling it that way. They just don't know how to market it. In turn they are the stupid ones.
User avatar #143 to #141 - ghostofgemini (09/07/2013) [-]
I rather see new games than remakes on remakes
User avatar #144 to #143 - maybeimalion (09/07/2013) [-]
It would be a new game, just in an old place. It could be based on the Pokemon Adventure series...Besides Pokemon has been the same game for how long now? Literally nothing has changed....oh you're a 10 year old who is setting out on an adventure with a starter pokemon! (Fire, Water, or Grass) Now you have to collect the 8 badges, defeat an evil crime or terrorist group, and finally defeat the elite four to become a master of pokemon! Only now they throw in stupid side quests, and other junk that distracts you momentarily to pad out the game. Then those ******* who waste their lives EV training to make their pokemon top tier...who ******* cares. I digress. Every Pokemon game plays out the same whether we like it or not. To the point where we all even say certain pokemon are the " " of this region. I legit had a conversation at work while looking at the marketing we got in, there was a bird on the poster and we all said, oh look that must be the Pidgey of this region. It is what it is man...we might as well get something cool and vast out of it.

I was misinformed, my bad...still..how much storage does a single pokemon game take? How easy would it be to duplicate it? My point stands otherwise.
User avatar #154 to #150 - ferrettamer (09/07/2013) [-]
You wouldn't even need close to half of that, but most people want it on handheld, so that likely won't be possible for a while. Though, it would likely take a while to remake all the regions, they would have to redesign them so that they have new features (like those berry things in the first and second gen), plus they would have to recode all the areas (though, I don't think that would be hard) and retexturize them so that they all have similar graphics

Especially for a team....with millions of dollars.
User avatar #169 to #166 - ferrettamer (09/07/2013) [-]
I didn't say it was impossible or hard, just that it would take a while, you can't just throw money at something and expect it to be good. Also, if they were to increase the budget, the actual game would have to cost quite a bit more than they currently do, which is what the original user said.
User avatar #398 to #169 - maybeimalion (09/08/2013) [-]
Right, but given that it would also increase sales, I don't see the problem. How many gamers have wanted this since they were kids? Not to mention that they have the money, talent, and time to make these games...I mean unless we really need another mystery dungeon game THAT bad.

I thought the Pokemon series was just about perfect during the 3rd Gen.

5 games, 2 games that were more simple (FR/LG), 3 that were more complex (Sapphire/Ruby/Emerald). No gimmicks, none of that IV training competitive ******** you see nowadays. Great music, fun gameplay, not too too many Pokemon where it becomes ridiculous.

Just, simply put, an upgrade of the original.

I don't understand why people want all these Western RPG elements in a Pokemon game (ex. Dur Hur Put more sidequests in the game, Customizable characters because it's important for some reason), if I wanted to play a game like that, I'd play the ******* Elder Scrolls series.

And no, I am not "Blinded by Nostalgia", the first time I played the 3rd gen games was almost a decade after their release. I was never into Pokemon when it came out. And no, I haven't played the 5th gen, it doesn't interest me. Though, I do wish to buy the X/Y games when they come out because they look amazing to me.

That's actually EV training. IVs are set when you see the pokemon/hatch it. They can't be changed after that. That's why they're called Individual values. Because they're for that individual pokemon.
