Let's say you were the creator of Black and White. You're having second thoughts about some of the things you added or did not add in and decide to change those bits around. What would you change or include for the games?

Whether it be the Pokémon designs, character plots, the evil team's storyline, etc. discuss what you would like to have or be removed from Black and White.

★★★ Perhaps you like everything in B/W just how way it is? Or maybe you believe there could be a couple touchings needed to be done for the games. Maybe there are things you thought could be removed. Discuss away! ★★★

I would get rid of Musicals. ;_;

I would definitely change the way some Pokémon look! And the rest I'm not quite sure since I haven't played the game. But most of the things I want to change is the Pokémon design. Oh and maybe make the game a bit more different and interesting, such as twin rivals or something.

I like everything how it is. :3 It all fits together, in my opinion. Although... I didn't actually play Black or White yet... But in the videos it looks good. XD

More rods (that's what she said), Pokeathlon instead of Musicals, evolution levels are way too high, berries, obvious evolutions being evolutions...there are more but I'll edit this post with them later.

I haven't played yet and have no complains. But I read about PokeMusicals, thank you poster above for reminding me, I hate the fact tat they just took the best part of the Sinnoh Super Contests out of it and re-branded it PokeMusical. So we really could have done without that or it could be changed or they should have just left the Super Contests as they are.

Is there a Safari Zone? I'm fairly sure there isn't, so that is what I would include. :>

Haven't played the games yet, though the only thing I'd change that I know of is the backsprites in the battles for your Pokemon~

Yes, there is a Safari Zone.

I'd remove Pokemon Musicals, as a few others have already said. It seems solely for girls. But I also think this is because the Pokeathlon was more for boys(though it didn't look completely for guys) so the Pokemon Musical is more for girls. But either way, i'd get rid of 'em :P
That's all i'll say as i've only seen videos and read walkthroughs. But those make the game seem really good(now if only I read Japanese...)

I would change a few of the Pokemon's designs-ex. the baby polar bear, do we really need it's nose to ooze with snot?!

I would also bring back the feature from SoulSilver/HeartGold that your Pokemon follow you. It would make sense in Black/White, because the entire plot is about bonding and coexisting with Pokemon, so why can't we bond with them by walking around with them?

Also, I love the feature that you we have unlimited TM use. But I can't stand that we don't get a lot of the good TMs like Flamethrower, ice beam, etc, until post-game...I wanted certain moves before I took on the Eite Four.

And I haven't tried the musicals, but I don't think I will like them. I miss the Pokeathalon.

I wouldn't change the plot, because the plot was so EPIC, AMAZING, AWE-INSPIRING. I was blown away by the plot. B/W may be lacking in certain features that I loved in SS/HG, but it is by far the greatest of all Pokemon games!

November 14th, 2010, 09:48 AM
Well the only thing I'd change is having pkmn follow you again like MrsNorrington said. Other than that, no complaints!

According to Bulbapedia (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Safari_Zone), there isn't. :\ Also, I wouldn't class the White Forest as a Safari Zone as you don't get bait, Safari Balls, limited steps etc. Also, it doesn't help that it is only in Pokemon White. :S From the sounds of them, Pokemon musicals sound horrible. I want the Pokeathlon back. ;_; I actually enjoyed the Pokeathlon. XD

Another thing I'd like is for there to be more Dive spots. :|

The only thing that I will change with these 2 games are replacing the Pokemon musicals with the Pokemon contest. Yeah the Pokemon musicals look cute and its new, but I prefer the Pokemon Super Contest. As for adding stuff, I wish that they would have put a Battle Frontier in these games because I've always loved the Battle Frontier

I would put a Vs. Seeker.
I'll probably have more to say when I get into the game next spring.

I'd change the exp-system back. I haven't even gotten past the first badge yet in BW because they made grinding such a major pain. I wonder how bad the pre-E4 situation is going to be.

The first thing which came to my mind were triple battles, rotation battles and the version exclusive areas.

There are far too few battles of these new types in the games. I've often encountered trainers which had 3 Pokémon and would be perfect to battle this way but it was always just a one on one battle. Why not add triple battles to the league or the first gym and a bunch of other places?

Black city and white forest would be okay, but unfortunately you need to high link with other people to actually make things appear in these areas. My Black city is completely empty, I can't buy any of the evolution stones and I'm missing out on all of the extra battles. I don't know anyone else in my area who has the game. I would make them always availble or at least be obtainable over Wifi.

One thing I also miss are the points which were displayed on your trainer card in some of the previous games and the ability to view some of your game statistics like how many Pokémon you have battled. I would bring those back.

Customizable trainer characters. Or at the very least redesign the female character so she doesn't look so... backwoods-like... Her design is my primary issue with these games so far, and the reason I'm not particularly excited about them.

Meduza
November 14th, 2010, 02:14 PM
I wish they added the feature from HeartGold and SoulSilver, with the lead Pokemon in your party followed behind you and you could talk to it.

I loved that feature and I still do.

And like 560cool, I would love the return of the V.S Seeker.

They can be very useful for in-game training and grinding.

Add the Follow feature.
Add customizing trainers.
Add Safari Zone.

That's all I can think of.

November 14th, 2010, 03:24 PM
As many people already said I would like to see the follow feature(but add the option to have it on and off). Also Gym Leader rematches(which I am pretty sure are not available) I don't have the game so I am not %100 sure.

OmegaRuby and AlphaSapphire
November 14th, 2010, 05:17 PM
^ Yeah we have no rematches in these games sadly :(
If I could change something I would have given Majimaru's final form the steal type, and Tsutarja's final form the dark type :)

Nakuzami
November 14th, 2010, 05:39 PM
So from what I hear here, there is no Safari Zone or VS Seeker. Though from what I hear other places, there is a safari zone...

-I like that the battle subway can take you all over Isshu
-Have pokemon follow you. I was expecting you'd be able to. Apparently not.
-I wouldn't change many of the designs. Though tiny parts of some are in desperate need of change.
-Be able to customize your character! That would be the best feature[:
-Add a VS Seeker

And @Magmaruby and Aquasapphire: Eww, I don't really like those typings, plus I don't really see your reasoning behind them =/

What I'd put in the game is the walking feature. I'd also take out Musicals and put the Pokeathlon back in. Some Pokemon's evolutionary levels are unreasonably high (the Monozu line and Meraruba line are 2 notable examples), so I'd lower them (Monozu would evolve at level 36, Jiheddo would evolve at level 50 and Meraruba would evolve via happiness instead of their old evolution methods). I'd also put the Game Corner back in.

Awww! But come on, she's so much more attractive than Lyra! That was my only disappointment with SoulSilver, Lyra looked terrible. I was so relieved to have an attractive character for BW.

No Safari Zone?

What is this I don't even-

Anyway I would make the Menu permanent on the BS than the C-Gear, which is kinda stupid considering it takes more battery life like the Sinnoh Underground

Make Monozu available in Fukiyose Cave as well, I mean come on Victory Road?

Jalorda/Smugod the Poison type, the least I can do

Make a region of islands like the Orange Islands with 5 Leaders with varying competitions, such as no Ground-types or no Pokemon with a speed stat higher than 100

And finally customizable trainers.

I wish they had used HGSS sprites (instead of DPPt) on the Pokemon's sprite animation...

November 15th, 2010, 06:29 AM
Hmmm, maybe get rid of the musicals... but I guess I like everything else.

Overall these games were really awsome, any other features needed would probably be put into the third game. :3

November 15th, 2010, 07:14 AM
Fix that weird exp. gain problem. It's hard to grind levels at the beginning of the game and that frustrates me because I like evolving my starter before the first gym, and BW was the first game I actually couldn't do that.

Binary
November 15th, 2010, 07:27 AM
I have yet to play to an extent at which I can fully interpret all the features and aspects of B/W. But from my small amount of experience, I'm fairly content with how everything is; It all sort of fits together, I suppose. There could have been a few other features, but I won't go too deep on that.

Personally I found Isshu to be a bit small and linear. I would have made the routes and cities a bit more interwinding like Sinnoh and Kanto instead of being one big hexagon with nothing inside.

^ I would be inclined to agree - I always tended to prefer places where I didn't have to go to place x after doing y.

There's a few things I would change - say the lack of Pokemon obtainable before the first gym, for starters. You're limited to the starter, monkey, dog, cat and angry-and-had-too-much-coffee rodent afaik which sems too narrow a limit for the first gym to me.

Features like Pokmon following you is another thing I felt was absent and another side-game to do that is far more entertaining than the musicals (even contests are better, never mind stuff like the Underground or Pokathlon) would have been nice. It dosn't even have a Safari zone or Game corner it seems (the latter may be for valid reasons however -_-). The Musical thing however comes off as really short-lived entertainment to me however.

A better way to rebattle people (nothing bar people in a few places that will rebattl you is worse than calling/vs seeker imo), gym leader rematches (although I'd expect that to be in the 3rd version), more double/triple battles (SO often there were cases where I expect a double battle... but instead there were single battles only)...

I liked the games overall (and I hadn't looked at much post-E4 stuff or things like Dream World) but it is lacking in some regards, IMO.

November 15th, 2010, 11:09 PM
Yeah, overall. it sounds pretty cool. Though I would get rid of Musicals... I mean seriously? Musicals!? Why not something like Battle of the Bands? Fight pokes for tha drums, Psychic for keyboard and something or the other for the rest. Whos with me!? *cricket chirp* Yeah, I didn't think so either. Hmm.... how about character classes?! (this is an idea i got from some other forum). Like for Breeder, quarter egg hatch time or for Youngster random catch rates?

November 15th, 2010, 11:15 PM
I would love the slot machines and the follow feature added the most D;

And I most of all I would prefer that there are gym rematches. Can't believe they didn't add the re matches. No fun versing the gym leaders only once...

Well, it seems kinda picky but, I would have liked features within the battle scene instead of a shaded green circle.

Oh, and maybe they could have added some sort of Minigames in the Musical (or something...)

Nakuzami
November 17th, 2010, 03:29 PM
Jalorda/Smugod the Poison type, the least I can do

You. Did not. Just say that. -.-
You actually want that? That was what everyone else I talked about it to on another website didn't want...
(including me -.-)

I stick by what I have said before:

I'd remove Pokemon Musicals, as a few others have already said. It seems solely for girls. But I also think this is because the Pokeathlon was more for boys(though it didn't look completely for guys) so the Pokemon Musical is more for girls. But either way, i'd get rid of 'em :P

-Have pokemon follow you. I was expecting you'd be able to. Apparently not.
-I wouldn't change many of the designs. Though tiny parts of some are in desperate need of change.
-Be able to customize your character! That would be the best feature[:
-Add a VS Seeker

And now I must say:
All you people really hate the high levels/hard experiance, huh? Well, that's kinda the point of these games, to be more challenging. I kinda like the idea. Besides, the fact that all of the elite 4's levels are exactly the same...that's kinda sad...and they're not even high...

Now I say:

-Add rematches, especially to gym leaders.
-Y muchos mas! <----(I believe I said that right)

He's entitled to his own opinion, nothing wrong with that.

The only aesthetic thing I'd add is the follow me feature. The game is perfect to me otherwise. C:

Has anyone mentioned the auto-run feature yet? ;_;

And the Musicals - yes, it is very cute, but I really want more player interaction other than just matching the timing then pressing 'appeal' for an applause...
Pokemon Musical is interesting side-quest, but I hope to expand it so you get to do more and get a reward out of it, like a trainer card upgrade or some ribbons or whatever.

Well, this is Nintendo. Miyamoto has a fetish for outward belly buttons, there were hundreds of kids with gigantic snot bubbles in Zelda: Wind Waker, anddd a bunch of other stuff.

Anyway, I think Pokemon should follow you, that the trading process between 4G and 5G shouldn't be Pal Park-ish (actually, the whole thing needs to be changed, seriously, no HM moves?) and the whole game is really a cakewalk. The elite four are around level 40-50, they make it easy to catch the game's legendary (you HAVE to catch it, actually), and the roaming legendaries aren't even annoying. Sure, the starters are the weakest ever (accoring to Bulbapedia), but it's still too easy. And WHAT I UP with them giving you a fossil a day!? IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE CHALLENGING!
But besides that, I think it's perfect :P.
