Just as a quick multi poll of sorts, what are people wanting/expecting??
I mean like
Number of new Pokemon
Title: Pokemon (that's it)
Art Style - either a return to pixel art as in Gen V, or more polished celshading as in Ni No Kuni or Dragon Quest XI
Battle system- The traditional stuff, get rid of z-moves though. Maybe expand movesets to 5. Return of all standard features like abilities, double/triple battles.
Catching system- straight up traditional catching mechanics, no motion controls
Adventure style - a guided open world, where there is a story compelling you to go somewhere, but the gyms can be done in any order and scale accordingly.
Region base - Australia.
Release date - September.
Number of new Pokemon - 120.
Title: Pokemon Amethyst/Pokemon Topaz
Art Style - slightly better than Let's Go.
Battle system- some new gimmick added that just congests battles with more long animations
Catching system - Motion controls shoehorned in, 'the reception to let's go was very positive' hahaha
Adventure style - so linear it may as well be a visual novel
Region base - UK
Story- Go fight gyms, beat bad team in spare time
Release date- November
Number of new Pokemon - 60, as well as 15 new forms for Kanto Pokemon
-Plus and Minus is the best I can think of off the top of my head, lol
-I want to see a sort of cell-shaded look based on the Pokemon Anime. Sun/Moon was kind of going for this, but was greatly held back by 3DS limitations.
-Return to turn based, nothing fancy, but I want a total animation overhaul with much cooler animations, less over the top than Z moves and with shorter animations than Z moves, but alot cooler than what we had in Sun/Moon for basic moves.
-Weaken then capture. They can bring back the motion control ball tossing for the let's go fans, as long as you can still press a simple button to do it as well.
-I want to see visible Pokemon in the wild like Let's Go, but I want larger, more open routes, towns, and cities than ever before, with a guided story and a return to classic gyms.
-Italy was what was teased in Sun/Moon, so I would assume that we would go there. Would be cool if there was a post-game in Kalos since Italy and France are neighbors, since we never got a Pokemon Z.
-I want a proper villain team again, Guzma and Team Skull were laughable. I would like to see Lilly return in some fashion with the ending where she left Alola to go adventuring made canon. Would be cool to see Zinnia from Alpha Sapphire/Omega Ruby return as well.
-November or December 2019 work for me.
Number of new Pokemon
-Maybe 60, not expecting alot of new Pokemon since I am hoping for a new engine with new and improved character models for all 809 current Pokemon. Maybe 20 new regional variants as well.
