Funny, when playing for the first time I thought that this exact area was quite cool too... I don't know why, I just like it.
Maybe would be cool if there was more areas with a natural feel.
I really like Ever Grande City. There really isn't much, but that feeling I get after getting through Victory Road and hearing that music is wonderful. Fills me with joy.
Verdanturf town is great too, a place I'd be alright with living in.
Mossdeep is pretty alright.
Sootopolis would be great if I didn't have to get through water to get to it.
Meteor Falls was really cool and the music that went along with was great.
Man, I dunno. Hoenn just feels good. Nice vibrant colors. Just wish it looked more like a place where people would live. Some houses don't even have beds.
The Z (tall hobo) guy gifted it to them some time ago. I don't think it's clear whether that's before XY because many people claim so, but I don't think this depressed hobo would go around gifting beautiful things.
I don't want it in the next fucking game. I want it in the goddamn remakes of the games that it was introduced it. Look at HGSS, they had a battle frontier, even if it was just a copy and paste of Plat, it was nice. I don't want a goddamn Battle Maison, I want a Battle Frontier. Emerald is like the one game that I actually didn't get to play as a kid, and I just wanted to fucking experience it. It's not asking too much, is it? Gamefreak could totally fucking put that shit on the eShop for like $5 or $10 and I'd buy it as DLC.
They have the capability to actually implement it, yet they don't. Fuck that shit
