    From looking at the footage from the announcement, I don't think it's happening. It should be saved for the remakes honestly. While it helped boost friendship and whatnot, I could see it being more of a hassle this time around.

    I don't think at all this feature will be present this time and honestly it doesn't annoy me at all. While it's a cool thing I find it to be dispensable. Plus most people tend to forget the tedious work that has to be done in case this feature is brought back, I can understand why GF decided to ditch it.

    Speaking of HGSS features, auto-run is far more interesting IMHO.

    I don't think this feature will be added, though it was kind of nice. At times though, it felt awkward, so if it were to be implemented again, I'd want the option to turn it off.

    If you look closely on the shoulder of the female (I guess) character while she crossing the bridge, she has a Bidoof beaver type Pokemon on her shoulder. Perhaps the feature is there, it can just be turned on and off.

    I loved having my Pokemon out of it's ball and following me so I hope it is possible!

    At 55 seconds in the announcement trailer there's a girl following your character so since they can make an NPC follow you hopefully your Pokemon can follow you as well!

    I'd love for the walking pokemon feature to come back just as much as the next guy, but creating models for 700+ pokemon must be hell for the development team though.

    I'm going to assume pokemon will still have overworld models anyways. I'd like to see them go the extra mile and allow us to have a following pokemon. It really was one of my favorite parts of HGSS.

    I think it would be a nice idea, while it wasn't shown in the trailer, it's possible that the games will have the option to turn it off or not.

    While its absence in the trailer doesn't necessarily exclude it (this is early footage, after all), I think the more realistic 3D style might throw up issues of scale. In HGSS the Pokemon were chibified much like the player character, but the proportions in these games are a little closer to reality. Plus I doubt we'd be seeing different models for Pokemon in battle and on the overworld. The same models would be used and it would look odd for Rayquaza to be shrunk down to the size of a snake.

    I wouldn't mind if they only allowed the starters and their evolutions to walk around, for whatever reason. Maybe your starter is special and likes being outside of its ball?

    "Playing around?" Wrong.

    On the pokemon site for X and Y, it says that the game footage isn't final. So there's still a chance for it. If the models are all ready there, then just making them smaller to fit the size of the character in the right camera angles might work. And that's a good idea with the starters.

    They had that in Amity Square (only in Platinum though, essentially because they hid items in there and wanted to give everyone a way in.)

    That said, its a bit unusual to not see ANY overworld pokemon. At least, I didn't see any in the trailer.

    I don't want it. It is a useless feature that does nothing and I think it is annoying to look at.

    In fact, it was the only thing I didn't like about HGSS

    Edit: but if they have it, please make it optional. Then it would please everyone!

    It's not something that would have to be there. They could use the extra space for some other cool feature.

    I'm pretty sure that's her hair you're looking at.
