You know what I miss? Having the Pokemon available change with the time of day. It didn't really hurt BW by not having it, but I always liked the challenge of having to wait to find certain Pokemon. They could even combine it with the seasons feature!
Imagine this: Relicanth is available all year round, all day in the deep ocean trenches, but is fishable along the coast of the ocean at night during the winter months. Or perhaps Chimecho is only available during the evening in the fall. Or something like that. It'd be a great challenge, and it'd mean it would take more than a few days to catch all of the Pokemon, because you'd have to wait for the seasons to change.
On the topic of the 3DS, I really would prefer them not to release the Pokemon games on it. I'm a college student, I can barely afford the games, let alone a new system, and the 3D effect gives me a nasty migraine after a while. I know I can turn the 3d off, but at that point there's no point at -all- in buying the system, since without 3D it's essentially an overpriced DSi with a tiny screen. </endrant>
On 3DS: it's not just a DSi with a 3D effect: the 3DS has a huge processing power advantage over the DS. There's many different things that they could do with that additional power and memory capabilities.
I'd rather they make it for the DS, and focus on a new Pokémon game for the Wii/Wii U.
If RSEmakes are made, and walking Pokémon return, I want Castform to change form depending on the location.
The remakes would be on DS or 3DS, I be pretty pissed if they shift the main series games to another console like Wii. Anyway, I am hoping for some new stuff added to the games like walking with your pokemon.
And I've never had any power/memory/whatnot problems with my Lite or DSi. I guess I'm just not interested in "fixing" what isn't broken. Especially since that "fixing" takes a couple hundred dollars. I guess I just really don't see a reason to ever buy a 3DS.
I like to see them put Regigigas in the remakes considering it is the master of the other three Regis.
2. It's not something you'll really 'see'... the games are made to use the capabilities of the system without breaking them. The 3DS is stronger and capable of more complex processing than the DS is. It's like comparing the PS2 to the PS3, or the N64 to the GameCube: the more powerful system can just handle more processor-heavy things (like full 3D graphics [not 3D-pop-out-3D, but 3D-everything-has-height,-width,-and-volume-3D]).
It might not be broken, but the stronger processing power of the 3DS makes it more capable than the DS was.
Eh, I guess that as long as my Lite is working, I really don't see a reason to replace it... but I'll see if I can't track down someone irl with the 3DS. Maybe being able to actually hold and play with the thing will help me figure out what I do and don't like about it.Originally Posted by Purim
That being said, I do hope that GF waits a bit before -completely- moving everything over to 3DS. RSEmakes and "Gray" on DSi/3DS enhanced, then a few Ranger/Mystery Dungeon-type games exclusively 3DS, then by the time gen. VI rolls around, everything on 3DS and I might actually be able to afford one/whatever "3DS Lite" or "3DSi" improved version might fix some of the headache the current one causes. </offtopicrant>
<ontopic>When do ya'll think the absolute earliest date for any news would be? I'd think that GF/Nintendo would want the games at least set up for pre-order when the holiday season comes around... So I'm thinking if we hear anything, it'll be sooner rather than later. Hopefully sooner, I'm already planning my team, ha ha...
And they absolutely must have a Jirachi event! I love that little critter. Though, we did get one released quite recently. I think we're missing a legit Deoxys at the moment. Are we? When's the last time we could get Deoxys?
Ontopic, I'm assuming that we'll hear about the RSEmakes in May next year, after Keldeo is announced for the 2012 Pokémon Movie. That's about the time Japan heard about HeartGold/SoulSilver and Black/White before they were released. Keldeo might have some functionality in PassionRuby/HonestSapphire, but we might also see Jirachi or Deoxys down the line having special functions in the games. Meloetta would also have some sort of event in PRHS, as a prelude to Grey Version.

Do note that the center looked different in Emerald than in RS. Thus, it's still open to more change.
