this thread is for innovating, yet realistic things you'd like to see in Z, assuming it will exist. I'll start.
XY failed to take advantage of a lot of things. The pokeball factory is one of them. Let's say, using certain items, you could create your own pokeballs in the factory. This includes regular pokeballs, great balls, net balls, and so on, but also the rarer option of custom made pokeballs. These would be restricted to your game, i.e. you could not trade these mons to other games, because other/future games would not recognize the ball designs. But it would be simple enough. Example:
>A pokeball can have two effects (one for the top half and one for the bottom half)
>Effects included range from time of day, type of pokemon, level, etc.
>Example: you can make a pokeball that makes fire pokemon easy to catch and makes them friendlier towards you
>A pokeball that makes electric and flying pokemon easier to catch
>A pokeball that is more effective if used on the first turn and gives 100 EVs towards the speed stat.
The graphics for the ball would just require a certain number of stocked colours and simple designs. Nothing crazy. Fire would give the ball a charcoaled look, a ball that raises EVs would have a star on it, or a triangle, depending on the stat, and so on.
we know GF would never do this but it certainly is doable
What do you want to see in Z?
actual incorporation of legendaries and their myths into the plotline.
I really didn't like that the critter on the box was introduced to me 7 gyms in, by the professor's fucking aide. By the time you actually do meet it, it's in the flare lab. Xerneas and Yvetal never interact once, even though their abilities are inverse of one another. It's just lazy.
Ostensibly, this will be fixed, because it's such a glaring plot problem. but who knows
Dragonitite (If we dont get this in ORAS First... )
Also OP, I want Ball stickers from HGSS back...and following Pokemon, of course. And the most important thing -
A hold of Amaura appeared with Tyrunt!
>Hail is crashing down
Eh, Xerneas and Yveltal's abilities dont counter each other. If theyre both on the field, all dark and fairy moves will be stronger.
Zygarde's however, counters both at once.
Oh and for the love of god can Air Lock please REMOVE weather and not just ignore it?
i.e., Damp Rock Kyogre comes out, it starts raining for 8 turns. Rayquaza switches in on it and the rain is completely gone and does not come back until Kyogre switches back in when Rayquaza is gone
This. So much fucking this.
I really liked the Gen VI story, don't get me wrong, but the legends...
>Here's one used as a power source, you cant even kill it because power of love and it needs help
Once you become the champion
>Oh there used to be a guy in Terminus cave, wonder what's there..
>Welp, it's legend! Who would've guessed.
And absolutely no fucking recognition of that.
I mean we're all used to the fact that kids are running around catching legends but it's been pretty lame in XY
>pokemon hurt my pokemon when I try to escape it's not fair.
You'll never be good at this game
It's possibly the most overrated gimmick in the history of pokemon. Wow, a 2-frame animation that spits out exactly the same stock phrases, no matter which pokemon you use? What's that? HGSS still has a shitty level curve and shitty pokemon distribution? Who cares! We got this AMAZING feature, instead!
>create your own gym (can add in trainers from other gyms or create your own, the more people online who battle your gym the bigger/more detailed it can become
>friend safari's options for each type of pokemon are now doubled (~20 each type)
>PWT/battle frontier makes a return
>can catch the final three legends
>harder main game
All I want
Zygarde Mega/Primal stones.
More backstory on AZ's Floette. Why does it have Xerneas's color scheme? Why does its flower have Yveltal's color scheme and shape? Why does it have a unique flower? Why can it use Light of Ruin but other Floette can't?
The only backstory they gave it was in an interview where it was stated Floette was a gift from AZ's late mother, which I feel like raises further questions.
Take Riolu out of random encounters.
Why would I want Korrina's Lucario? I've known this one since before the first gym!
Also, Chesnaughtite, Delphoxite, and two kinds of Greninjite. Because we all know who the devs' favorite is.
git gud faggot
>better character customization
>improving some shit sprites like my bro Nidoking
>more badassness and less cuteness
>poison super effective against water
>ice resists water
>fairy loses bug resistance
>fighting no longer weak to fairy
>stealth rock nerf to 18,75 and 25% damage
>shitmons getting +10 stat buffs like Tropius and Wailord (defense) and Steelix (attack) for example
>get rid of IV's for stats and make them effect the brightness and all that of the Pokémon sprite so your bro truly looks unique and breeding only has to be done for egg moves and it also discourages hacking
>a normal mode for plebs and casuals
>a hardcore mode for veteran players with no item usage during battle etc.
probably more, but if I get half of this it will be heaven.
>improving some shit sprites like my bro Nidoking
But it looks great
Xerneas & Yveltal VS Zygarde double battle
More post-game quests and side stories and just generally things to do that aren't Battle Maison and the Looker quest.
Less cheaty OP Battle Maison
> inb4 get gud
I've already got both berries so yeah
Horde trainer battles
More trainers/rooms in the Battle Chateau (it's pretty useful for quickly leveling up Pokémon to Level 100)
This. Not in a deviant or sexual way, but an option for the girl to wear the males trousers and shirts and the boy to likewise wear her clothing would be fun. I chose the male character, but I prefer the female outfits, so.
Also, can we take off the fucking hats?
More cute Legendaries
I feel like there is a reason what they held back this gen. so that they will have new pokemon releases as marketing gimmicks
>A more defined contrast between daylight hours.
>An special box so you can deposit a team for StreePass (c'mon, make use of it GF).
>Pokedex habitat list.
I want better incorporation in game for event Pokemons like in Gen 4. At least in BW/BW2 you get to do something once you get Meloetta/Keldeo/Genesect. That shitty Diancie event was really disappointing.
You know what I want to see?
Multiple endings. Like, three of them.
1) Beating the Elite 4 + All Gyms
2) Catching all pokemon available in the region's dex
3) Beating the big bad team
Have the game not force you to run in a linear line. Have Gym leaders' levels scale with your team so they're always relevant even if you decide to skip them. Let you be more free.
Butsomething like that'll never happen.
so removal of HMs
Pokeball Emporium selling every kind of ball except master, dream and cherish.
Stone Emporium selling every stone instead of having to do stupid super training grind.
Neither of these obvious things will happen.
Another Battle frontier Side game
This time make it a theme park
I don't care if its a rehash
No overarching story. Just be able to traverse the land as a normal trainer rather than an MC thrust into the spotlight.
Rather than being the hero, you're simply the bystander on your own journey. On TV or in homes, you may hear tales of the hero's adventures and triumphs, but none of it affects you.
>water is no longer SE against rock, is now SE against steel and poison
>"Hey! Your pokemon had an egg! It looks like your party is full. Do you want to send the egg to your PC?"
>Rather than being the hero, you're simply the bystander on your own journey. On TV or in homes, you may hear tales of the hero's adventures and triumphs, but none of it affects you.
This. Bonus points if the hero is the Champion, but otherwise isn't met by the player.
Honestly, I can see a small event working well.
>You have one of your pokemon stolen by Team Rocket at some point in the game
>You can't win the fight, as his team is quite high-leveled
>You lose the battle, it is taken from you, and you can't do anything about it
>You get a pokemail from the MC telling you to meet him in a random town
>You get there, he gives your pokemon back, and all around the region people are now talking about a mysterious trainer who singlehandedly took down Team Rocket.
>You continue on your journey and that's that.
That bitch could take any special attack in the universe.
Stupid idea. Kids love to be the hero. This is why Redgy is a thing, kids that grew up with him want to envision him as this monumental unstoppable god-king of battling rather than some dork kid.
Better incorporation of the legendaries overall. Like, all of them.
Better story about AZ and Floette. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE QUALITY.
Vastly fleshed out Team Flare in both regions of Kalos, working their damndest to destroy Kalos and stop you and your friends.
More Pokemon in Southern Kalos that add up 800.
Take off the hat.
Would it kill you to fix the fucking Pokemon League?
Battle Frontier with all new people and facilities rather than rehashing Hoenn's.
Paris Catacombs dungeon. You're going to put in France's bloody history, but not the most recognizable thing about France besides the food and its architecture? For fucking shame.
Better friends, better clothing, better rival, more difficulty, more places in Kalos in general, etc.
Zygardite Z that gives it 200 BST and makes it look more like Niodhoggr and some System Shock bullshit. Postgame with Team Chill led by Sycamore as his true 'thanks' for stopping Team Flare with him manning Volcanion to try and preserve Kalos the way it is now, by freezing it to death.
This isn't about what would sell. This is about what would make for a good game.
Just once I'd like to see some modesty, closer to what Red and Blue did without the Team Rocket BS.
you colossol dumb fucking faggot. Red's story was minimal. That's why it's so good. Gamefreak will only write a childish cartoon story, so a minimalistic story is the best approach for all.
I agree with many things in this thread, but they don't sound realistic for just a third game, they are more like stuff for gen vii.
If you ask me, the best escenario would be having a sequel like BW2 instead of Z.
But for Z, I'd like:
>better writing of the plot
The idea per se isn't bad, but it suddenly gets thrown at you at the end. Maybe get that stupid Champion more involved too.
>new mons to ride
>megas for the gym battles and e4, or at least the rematches
>Seasons like BW
>Normal and Hard Difficulties like B2/W2
>Battle Frontier level Emerald
>Walk with lead pokemon like Yellow/HG/SS
A Surfing Minigame for any-Pikachu like. Like the one of Yellow
>Expand the use of Ridable Pokemon like a Bike/Rollerskates/Running Shoes
>Rollerskates as selectable Key Items and not a defalt bullshit
>B2W2 Tutors or more Tuors in general
>Roller skates as equipable key items
personally I found that mechanic quite interesting, maybe it's not the best feature of BW but after a while you get bored seeing the same stuff... same defeated trainers, backgrounds... it get tedious, but the seasons at least make that slightly different y akes the game less repetitive but I would love if each season came packed with different sets of mons, like the night/day mechanic back in gen II (ok ok daytaime wont change a lot the wild mons but you get my point)
An actual story would be nice.
>YOU! Random child! Go research this never before heard of power
>Seek out obligatory old man with infinite knowledge on said power
>Man, look how huge this region is with so many "new" pokemon!
>Oh no, a team of buttfrustrated millionaires want to KILL EVERYTHING? You have to stop them, Senpai~!
>Mega evolution is a sacred process few can master
>Beat the shit out of your pussybitch rival and master it in 5 second with a 2-turn furbait vs furbait battle!
>Go, stop Team Flare, who totally weren't introduced the same way as Team Rocket!
>3-4 gyms later
>Mwahaha, I, the red haired obviously evil guy, am actually the leader of team Faggot
>I, too have master Mega Evo- oh shit I lost. Time to kill myself
>WOW! You're such a talented trainer, Senpai~! You saved the world!
All options is too broad, so you want prostitutes? Murder? School? Getting sued after you beat the champion and being forced to surrender your champion status because you hurted his feelings? Why does crossdressing get the okay but not all that? While we're at it why not install a church so religious fags don't feel left out! But can't just be ONE church has to be a church for EACH religion! and why can I only be tan/white/black why can't I appear Indian? Or Native? Why can't I be crossspecies? Why can't I have tentacles? It's a fucking pokemon game gtfo with cross dressing pls I'd even support if you said more clothing options even gender neutral clothing(such as pants) but why does the guy need a dress in a childrens game? Again the gays try to spearhead themselves into everything it's annoying, just let kids play as boys and girls if they wanna be gay or trans or whatever when they grow up they can feel free but why introduce them at a young age it's retarded
>All options is too broad, so you want prostitutes? Murder? School? Getting sued after you beat the champion and being forced to surrender your champion status because you hurted his feelings?
No mate. All options that are in the game, but are locked out until you restart.
>Why does crossdressing get the okay but not all that?
Because it's just enabling all the options that are present in the game.
Also, learn to fucking write something. No way in hell am I going to traverse that fucking wasteland of questionmarks.
>>I-i-i-i-i-i-i know! I'll just saying she needs to learn to write :c
Not him, but you really do need to learn how to structure a post.
Your post was literally just a brick of text that I didn't really give a shit about reading, I still think he's a massive fag but I couldn't even read your post without getting bored.
Why would I give a shit about you getting bored or not? The post wasn't directed at you and had nothing to do with you. I actually think that WAS you since you're personalizing everything and assuming the world revolves around you, just like he did with wanting crossdressing in a kids game just because he wants to be a pretty boy princess c:
Are you mentally handicapped? Why are you repeating retarded phrases like 'pretty boy princess'? Why are you incapable of using the 'enter key'?
The fact you have not, for one single instant, considered that the suggestion of crossdressing was not a 100% serious suggestion?
That perhaps the introduction of crossdressing into a Pokemon game is in fact SUCH A ludicrous suggestion that an anonymous poster on an image board might have, for a single instant, been satirical and just having 'a bit of fun' by suggesting it.
Possibly, just possibly, you are not the only human being to have figured out that crossdressing is not going to be added to Pokemon under any circumstances, and the suggestion is one made out of amusement?
Or perhaps, this entire thread is 100% genuine opinions with serious discussion, and crossdressing is being seriously suggested as an upcoming feature in a monster battling RPG video game aimed at children made by Nintendo.
Plus I like how you're the only person here drawing attention to yourself on a personal level.
Referring to yourself 'I'll just saying she's stupid and needs to learn how to write :c' (shit grammar by the way)
Personally insulting some random on the internet with silly insults that aren't even offensive to anyone who isn't a retard (pretty boy princess wut).
I love the idea of custom Poke Balls at the Poke Ball Factory. But the Pokemon in them would be able to be traded and sent to future games. Apricorn Poke Balls aren't available outside of HGSS, but they still appear as the ball the Pokemon was caught in in all other games. I see no problem there with a palette difference.
Obviously, there needs to be something along the lines of the Battle Frontier, and keeping Contests and Secret Bases from ORAS would be a good idea.
Of course we'll get more Mega Evolutions as well. Probably Pokemon like Zygarde, Chesnaught, Delphox, Greninja, Mew, Florges, Druddigon, Porygon-Z, Slowking, and others. (I think Gallade and Milotic are coming in ORAS.)
There seemed to be a lot of unused areas and concepts in XY. The ghost girl in Lumiose City, the haunted house outside of Laverre, the train station at Couriway Town, locked doors at the Power Plant, the Chamber of Emptiness, the missing newspaper editor. etc. These should be expanded upon.
We'll probably get some new legendary events as well. Volcanion might involve the Power Plant, and Hoopa might involve the Chamber of Emptiness. Somehow we'll get the Mega Stones for Latios and Latias. I'd like a way to get AZ's Floette too.
Slight improvements to the custom clothing should be made, especially in regards to the male selection. Also, maybe the more stylish you become/the more PR videos you make/the more contests you win, you could have your Pokemon star in advertisements too, like the photo shoot for Mamoswinalline in Lumiose City.
Finally, I think we'll have some racing events. A Rhyhorn race outside Santalune City, a skating race between Lumiose and Camphrier Town, a cycling race in Cyllage City, and a Skiddo/Gogoat race a Baa de Mer Ranch. In the post game, the Rhyhorn racetrack may also include other Pokemon too. Maybe Gogoat, Rapidash, Dodrio, Mamoswine, and Zebstrika. These post game races would be held whenever you want, and the rules/Pokemon may change daily.
ACTUAL POKEMON HUNTING
POKEMON SHOULD BE HARD TO FIND AND REQUIRE CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES
YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO FIGURE OUT THESE CIRCUMSTANCES FROM CLUES INGAME
I WANT TO FEEL LIKE POKEMON ARE REAL ANIMALS MANG
>These would be restricted to your game, i.e. you could not trade these mons to other games, because other/future games would not recognize the ball designs
Just have them flagged as normal pokeballs with some extra bytes that determine what custom changes they have implemented. When they get traded, the custom bytes are considered to be the default because the trainer info doesn't match, so they'd function as standard pokeballs on everybody else's game but your own.
>the missing newspaper editor
She's been confirmed to return once you obtain a Volcanion. Apparently she was researching it for 15 years an returns to share what she discovered. Basically it's the ingame event for Volcanion with interesting lore. Same for Hoopa. Some dude appears in Parfum Palace who tells you shit he knows on Hoopa.
We may have some other ingame events with them in "Z", but probably ORAS at least. Remember the Arceus event?
This would be great. No more shitty random encounters every 2 seconds, just more realistic hunting. Beginner stuff would be easy to hunt, strong Pokémon not so much. Catching Pokémon will actually be rewarding and not a drag.
Speaking of the pokeball factory, I'd like to see some wild Voltorbs and Electrodes in it. For whatever ridiculous reason, they're not available in XY until the Lost Hotel. Such a missed opportunity.
But other than that? I want to see the PWT again. Save the Battle Frontier for ORAS, so that Gen 6 gets the best of both worlds.
Less hand-holding. More optimisation- I shouldn't have to buy the new 3DS just to get the game to run at a decent rate.
More. Clothes. For. Dudes.
Pokemon incubator, you can put 6 eggs in a building and in 30 minutes they will hatch, you can come back and see the results. Sure is longer than going around in a bike but at least you cold do other game stuff like battling or catching while the eggs grow.
See this?, make so folder changes color according to the box wallpaper (or pokemon inside it)
Intro animations for Pokemon, just make them open their mouths when they enter battle at least, it feels so empty without them.
More utilities in towns so there's more reasons to go to them in the Post game.
Team photo like in HG/SS with the XY features (zoom, focus,etc)
To be fair, what game can you name that is fun where you aren't the Mary Sue who saves the day? I'm still agreeing with you also retconnning the story is fucking gay why not just leave it in there like it was already there but just not really looked at.
Do you mean you wouldn't be able to trade the Pokémon at all? Because I don't see why not.
The game would just have seeds for all the possible ball combinations. Really wouldn't take that much space up.
I was thinking more about this last night, and I'd love to see better lore in this game. Gen IV was on point with that shit, and did a great job developing a sense of mysticism that motivated you to go out and hunt for legends. For two apparent demi-gods, X and Y don't get the credit they're due.
I don't understand why this guy's getting so much hate. Nintendo did the same thing with Tomodachi Life when people asked them to allow same-sex marriage within the game.
i just want my qt grill to marry shauna ;_;
>Gen IV had good lore
Why do people keep saying this shit? There's nothing good about the creator of the universe being revealed as an overdesigned llama with golden spikes glued onto it, not to mention how awful Palkia and Dialga are.
Johto and Unova both did lore much better, with stuff like Kyurem and the Burning Tower. The Creation Trio is one of the worst things to happen to Pokemon. Try and justify why a child can control the god of the universe by playing a flute.
>day/night was a stupid idea, specially when it changed every hour
Its a kirin
>the god of the universe
You can't. You can open the chamber one of Arceus' Avatars is sleeping in. The azure flute is a cherished symbol of Arceus, at that, akin to the holy grail in christian mythology.
>Chesnaughtite, Delphoxite, and two kinds of Greninjite. Because we all know who the devs' favorite is.
Yes, give Delphox a mega with Black Magic as it's ability.
Black Magic: Makes Psychic attacks super-efective agaist Ghost and Psychic types
and not very-efective agaist fairy types
I'd like it if they scaled up with your team but not down. I.e. the first gym has a minimum of level 15 Pokemon but if you bring a team of level 17s, they're all bumped up a little
I reckon you can bet your sweet bippy that we'll get a change in the gym leader line up.
One will be upgraded to an Elite Four position
(replacing Malva since she is now the head of Team Flare reborn), others may retire from the position (like Lenora, Brycen had in B2W2) with new guys from newly 'discovered' cities/towns replacing them.
You have no idea how much I want this...
But given that their ideas are usually really stupid & that GF is never gonna encourage gangsterism then I want
to be able to dress as the evil team after I beat its members & steal their clothes.
It's not "the gays". It's a very small subsection of gay people and SJW fuckwits who are being loud and obnoxious. I'm one of "they gays" and I don't want that shit in my pokemon. It'd be damn uncomfortable and endanger the future of the franchise due to parents flipping shit and never allowing kids to play it again.
Now you've got me wanting two Mega Delphoxes: one cute magical girl with White Magic and one wicked witch with Black Magic.
White Magic: Full immunity to Dark and Ghost.
Black Magic: Either what you said, or guaranteed secondary effects because they all have Flamethrower and Psychic. I don't recall Delphox learning any moves with a chance to freeze so it should be fine.
Has Game Freak forgotten that humans can fight each other since Emerald? (Maxie punching Steven across the room in the Mossdeep Space Center)
Since supporting characters always get their Pokemon stolen, why not have it happen to you? A Grunt steals your Pokemon, and you have to go through a stealth segment, infiltrating a base to recover your Pokemon, then fighting your way out.
How does that sound?
Elaboration on the Anistar sundial. I personally think that it was created by Zygarde, seeng as it's 3,000 years old and reacts to Xerneas's and Yveltal's power. Also Zygarde lives in a cave right next to Anistar.
Personally, I want to get rid of this 'only 4 moves' shit, I mean, do all Pokemon have Alzheimer's or some crap? The other thing I would like would be for some HMs to be replaced with items like a raft, flashlight, and machete, and others like strength and fly to still be performed by Pokemon, but used like key items in other games and not taking up space in one's move inventory.
