Bold and Wishful Prediction For Amiibos! Pokemon Gen 7 Will Be Using Them...
MY PREDICTION ON POKEMON + AMIIBOS!!!
So let me say i think Amiibos need 1 huge franchise that revolves all around them. Something like SSB but instead of a fighter, more in the lines of an RPG or an action (maybe platformer?) game. But that for another day! Lets talk about what i think they'll do with pokemon and amiibos!!!
Lets start off with FACTS and How all this will work. We all know N3DS will have Amiibo functionality. We all know that 3ds has/will have around a 50mil lifetime userbase (excluding N3DS #s). We all know Pokemon is a 10mil+ userbase franchise.
That said i believe Pokemon Gen 7 will be a 3ds game. Though a successor for 3ds might be out, i dont think Gamefreak will let the userbase go so quickly (look at BW+BW2 for example). So imo i believe the game will have N3ds enhanced features. Mostly amiibos!
First up there will be 2 types of amiibos. The first being a Mega Evolution Pokemon only. The pokemon figure could be either the mega evolution itself or the base form or the Final Stage (i dunno, pick one!).
Also available in amiibo cards that showcase every pokemon in the family (Ex: A Venasaur Amiibo Card which features Bulbasaur/Ivysaur/Venasaur/Mega Venasaur on the card!)
⇒Functionality: Each amiibo figure/card will allow the user on the N3ds/successor to easily breed pokemon of user choice in nature/IVs/EVs/abilitys. Also each amiibo will have a usally hard to get breeding move. Option of making it Shiny or even an exclusive Color? Customize it and train it as you like
2nd type of amiibo being just a pokeball amiibo!
⇒Pokeball Amiibo: This (should be a pack in for many of the retail copies like poke walker) will allow a party up to 6 pokemon be saved into the amiibo. Bringing it across to the WiiU or to another friends n3ds so they can battle, trade, etc. Im sure you guys can think of something better for this^
So thoughts??? :'(
