Absolutely fucking not. SM went the entirely wrong direction, trying to be a Yokai Watch ripoff rather than sticking to Pokemon's core. The next game should drop the hand-holding and return to a more open feel as the first five generations had. Drop the "super happy nice friend time!" rival every game 3DS game had too, it's beyond boring at this stage; along with that, drop the Z-moves, they add nothing to the game. Include difficulty options (A basic feature most games have had for the past couple of decades), include all Pokemon, include post-game content (do not leave it out because 'people have shorter attention spans').
