This. I can see them using this the reason the player can't catch, say, Kyogre in the Ruby game.Originally Posted by Purim

One thing I wonder about is how the "secret base" system will work. Will GF revamp the original RSE bases? Or will we have something similar to the Underground from DPPt? While I miss the opportunity to battle your friends in their bases (and gain exp. points!) I also loved how easy the Underground made getting rare items.
Perhaps a compromise would be having the individual, above-ground bases with battle-able friends in theirs, but then have a minigame of sorts where you could find items. Like, say, once a day (or some other time interval) there would be the opportunity to find rare items in your base. Each type of base could have a slightly different puzzle. If you were lucky, you'd find a rare item (evolutionary stones, fossils, etc.); if you weren't, you'd have to wait for the next day. Just a little bonus for having a base. They could even expand it so that when you had your friends' bases available in your game, you would get the chance to find an item in their bases in addition to your own.
The items could vary per base-type, which would encourage players to connect with others, which is something GF seems to be endorsing recently.
