Why fix something that isn't broken. The only developers that think turn based is dead are SE, and even they're starting to realize it's still alive and kicking.

What is it with twisting all these classical rpgs that happend to be turn based, into action rpg monstrosity?
Keep Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, and Pokemon turn based.

Thank you!
Pokemon works well with turn based, I cant even imagine how crappy it would be without.
Why "fix" something that isnt broke? like Change for the sake of change is a virtue or something,... its not.

Pokemon concept works because its turn based.

I bet both FF15 and F7R would have been better as turn based games.

As a side game sure, but the main series should stay as is I think, just with vastly improved attack animations.



No thank you. That's what spin-offs like Pokken are for. 

It's not like Pokemon even has a sales problem when it's been selling better than ever this generation. So what's the point or need to shake things up for no reason and risk everything? Because of some vocal minority fanbase on the internet that probably don't even care about Pokemon games anymore or in first place?



I'm not a huge fan of pokémon, but to mess with the core mechanics like that feels very wrong. I feel like any step towards action would mean having to program multiple fighting styles to each pokemon type, which would probably mean fewer new pokemon and shallow real-time combat

Yes, but their would be no proper way to do it.



Love the pun in the title
