I wouldn't want it to drop existing features, but I do like the catching mechanic a lot more than I was expecting. Either mixing the two or giving us the option to catch with the motion controls would be really nice, make everyone happy. I mean it's not like it's particularly challenging in the mainline games either...I caught all the legendaries in Heartgold and recall it being more of a waiting game for the RNG to pay off after going through the usual False Swipe+Sleep+Dusk Ball routine.
I do agree about random battles though. Holy crap being able to see the Pokemon I want before engaging is an absolute blessing and saves so much grinding in the long run. Really don't want to go back to the old method of crossing my fingers every time the battle music starts.
