Battles that last longer than one or two moves. I don't mind battles with regular trainers being shorter and wild pokemon battles being even shorter than that, but Gym battles should be epic Boss style fights. I would love to see them last 15-20 minutes with multiple substitutions on both sides and a more complex AI. Elite 4 and League Champ should feel like you're fighting the game's Mega Boss instead of a glorified Gym Leader.
On the topic of AI, an AI that gets increasingly more difficult as you become stronger and more acquainted with the game. I want to lose battles. I want to feel like I need to completely shift my strategy away from zerg rush till I win to think about how I want to send my pokemon in, what kind of stat reducing moves I want to use.
Since the game is on 3DS, I am expecting it to last quite a while (hoping), so maybe a non-linear world that you can choose which order you fight gyms. if there is a villainous team, I would like them to feel like a real threat. I want to feel like I'm always behind through unwinnable battles for the story and grunts that actually feel like they know what they are doing. Maybe they could have a more complex goal then capture legendary take over the world.
I'd just like a game that is a little more mature in storytelling and gameplay while keeping the sense that it is still a pokemon game.
Trainer Rematches on demand like you could with the VS. Seeker, I don't really like the idea of waiting around until you can battle certain trainers.
I want to be able to rematch Gym leaders in Gen 6. Id just like the ability to battle them again with higher leveled Pokemon to challenge you and have your Pokemon get some good experience post game.
With the PWT it was set Levels, a strict amount of Pokemon and you couldn't gain and Experience which is why I didn't really class it as "rematching" the Gym Leaders.
A GTS that isn't polluted with ridiculous or impossible trades.
A male Cubone for a Lvl 9 or under Darkrai? OH, OK, THAT MAKES SENSE.
The ability to put your swag on I E character customization and savable recording of game play would be cool for posting stuff online
I want the Size section it the Pokedex back!
I want romance in-game. like dating-sim type where you can date atleast 5 different people where you can meet them in towns or something. seriously this game needs something different so it won't just be catching pokemon and battling gym leaders. :lol:
I'd like to see maybe a battle rollercoaster
idk how it would work, but it seems cool to me
I think it would be interesting to have the battlefield you are fighting on also affect the pokemon you choose to battle with instead of always having X always beats Y so ill use X. Some examples would be fighting in forest /wooded areas , water and coastal battlefields ( speed boost for water type pokemon?) , grasslands(equal field for all except water?) , tall-grass , deserts etc. Somewhat like how pokemon get benefits or disadvantages in certain weather but more flushed out. This could also be used in gyms to gym the player an extra challenger to overcome. Think a water gym where you have to battle on platforms in a pool or a volcanic gym.
I'm sure a lot of people will have already seen this as it's from a few days ago but I just stumbled across this article and I think some interesting points are raised -
Pokemon X and Y ideas - Official Nintendo Magazine
Particularly interesting are the points on IVs and dynamic levels.
