Which Pokémon do you see yourself having by your side? If it was an option to have one follow you around, which Generation V Pokémon would be at your side?

Discuss, discuss, discuss!
Wooop, 1000th thread. :D

I'd see myself with Excadrill or Samurott following me around. Scolipede isn't too bad, either.

1k? Aww I missed it. XD

Probably not Galvantula, because it would walk weird imo. Soo... Ducklett would probably look awesome if it was following me.

Who doesn't want a pseudo-human that wears a KARATE UNFORM following them? (It's not like the feature was ever going to happen.)

Who wouldn't want Seed bby or Lilligant behind them?

Chandelure would be my choice. How sick would it be to have a ghost chandelier following you around? XD

I think Hydreigon has to get my vote, though it may look to...chibi-ish.

In the case that happens, I choose Tynamo.

Guy
March 4th, 2011, 04:52 PM
Reuniclus? I couldn't imagine a better Pokémon following me around Unova than that. I mean a green, jelly-like bear? That's pretty awesome in my opinion.

Oh, and Seed bby (Petilil) of course.

Soo... Ducklett would probably look awesome if it was following me.
I can picture Ducklett squabbling on its feet following behind. Cute. n__n

March 4th, 2011, 04:57 PM
Kyurem, Genesect, Reshiram, Bisharp, Haxorus, Joltik, or Carracosta. Those are the ones I'd prefer, at least.

Stormbringer
March 4th, 2011, 05:19 PM
It would have to be either one of these guys. <3

I'd take Daikenki, Haxorus, or Conkeldurr along with me. I guess I'm just a fan of walking with bipedal mons.

I'd probably have Samurott follow me around, as it will be my starter.

Seperior, Oshawott or Zurua of course!

Even better, who doesn't want a pseudo-human POWA RAINJAA POKEMON (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Bisharp_%28Pok%C3%83%C2%A9mon%29) following them, always accompanied by this awesome theme music (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dk8Lw8W8AgM) playing whenever it appears?

I'd take Daikenki, Haxorus, or Conkeldurr along with me. I guess I'm just a fan of walking with bipedal mons.

!!!! Where did you get those sprites?! Aaaugh, now I really hope this Follow-Me/Walking Pokemon feature returns in BW's successor(s)!

My starter Oshawott (and its evolutions), of course. Either him or my Woobat/Swoobat, because that thing is adorable.

There's something amusing and cute about a blind Woobat or Zubat fluttering its wings yet remaining so ever loyal to the path of its Pokemon Trainer. :cer_laugh:

I have to agree, seeing a Pokémon such as Vanillite following you around would be so cool. n_n Especially with the Pokémon brought into this generation, the follow me feature would have been amazing. If it were to be implemented in the games though, I would like to see any of them follow me to be honest. I could just imagine a Trubbish trailing behind me. :3

mochilicious
March 5th, 2011, 01:34 PM
I would definitely choose Swoobat; I think it's my favorite Gen. V Pokemon, and it's so cute!

King Gumball
March 5th, 2011, 03:42 PM
I would have my future Serperior follow me around :3 I wonder what it would look like. Shiny Swoobat and Munna would be awesome as well though.

This is kinda my reply to this thread. Because I can't really chose one single Pokemon to follow me around, I'd rather not care and out of curiosity, see what it's like to have pretty much any of them follow me.

Meganium
March 5th, 2011, 09:09 PM
I'd probably have either Oshawott (unevolved) or Chillarmy. They're both so cute I wish I want them following me by my side. ^_^

Serperior would be awesome following you.

If I could choose a gen 5 pokemon for this, it would be Genesect, who is currently my favorite bug type right now.

Nameless.
March 6th, 2011, 05:54 AM
Honestly, I really don't mind if it's implemented or not.
It was a nice little feature to have in HGSS, but it's not all that important to me. It made the gameplay a bit more fun yes, to have a Pokemon to interact with, but I think Dream World does an okay job of that already. Maybe someday in the future it'll be nice to have Gen 5 Pokemon follow you! Either in the third game or the 6th Gen, but it's not necessary for me to have fun. :]

Hachiku
March 6th, 2011, 06:24 AM
I would probably choose one of the ice cream cones. They're all I'll ever need to keep me entertained.

BenjiTheKid

The Lillipup evolution line. I don't normally like Normal types... finding that their designs are usually bland... but I love the Lillipup family. The first two are just so cute and the last stage is awesome. They would definitely be the ones following me at all times. Plus, as a dog person, having a terrier Pokemon following me around would be full of win.

Having Tepig follow me would be pretty sweet, too. He's adorable.

Reshiram! :D

But if were to be implemented then the games would be more demanding on hardware if you wanted to play it on emulator.

Pretty much any Gen IV pokemon! I love them all (but maybe some more than others).

Raichu1988

Serperior for sure. Either that or Reshiram. If I had to pick any other besides those two, I'd probably go with Pansear or Sandile because I love their sprites.

My question is, why didn't they include this feature? I would have been great and I would assume after they did in HG/SS it would be included in every game after.

I would probably have Deerling follow me :3 <3

Barn
March 10th, 2011, 04:25 PM
I don't know if its been said already, but this could totally work for the 3rd game. When you met N, he could say, "You keep your Pokémon in Pokéballs? How sad... they don't have a chance to breathe the fresh air, other than when they're in battles. Here, now the first Pokémon in your party will follow you outside of its Pokéball."

I would love if this feature was implemented!

Partly it's because the follower system was developed for Heart Gold and Soul Silver at the same time that Black and White were being developed - this leaves little leeway for the two teams to actually co-ordinate the system and copy it over to the BW engine, not to mention all the special dialouge that has to be written, events that need to be re-scripted and the testing that needs to be done to make sure nothing goes wrong.

It's also because the sprite artists already had a mammoth task ahead of them to sprite all the new Pokémon and trainers, draw new back sprites for every old Pokémon, draw new front sprites for a good number of Kanto and Hoenn Pokémon as well as reworking all the existing sprites for the animation system.

Lilligant or a male Lapras(But we all know Lapras cannot traverse out of water, so this option is negated in one way).

November 3rd, 2012, 07:32 AM
I'd have a Foongus follow me around because it'd look so adorable omg. It'd sway from side to side and wave it's tiny little arms and awww I want one ;; There is the possibility that it'll just look like a Pokéball following you around from an aerial view, but I'm sure they'd sort that out haha.

Golurks Were Meant to Fly
November 8th, 2012, 01:09 PM

edit: I wasn't thinking about using the fans' work. I was thinking more about if fans can do it, why didn't the big people do it? Just something nice for the fans, but the follow-me feature can stay exclusive to HGSS and Yellow, too.

"We do not accept work from third parties. All such work must be done within our studios."

Or somesuch, if they were to be asked.

I actually think, based on how the game works, that B/W was built off of Platinum's base, so that's why features that existed in HG/SS did not get imported. We can hope someday that a sixth gen. game is built off of the HG/SS base. It seems to me that B/W and HG/SS were developed simultaneously, and why B2/W2 doesn't use HG/SS features is simple: they already had the B/W base and simply had to edit maps, create new storyline scripts, etc. They probably didn't see a need to revisit the "follow me" feature.

November 14th, 2012, 11:17 PM
BLACK KYUREM!!! White Kyurem's an alternative, but not as cool as Black Kyurem & maybe...... an Escavalier & Haxorus, two examples of my fav fully-evolved Pokemon!

November 21st, 2012, 01:13 PM
On my current White Playthrough I would have Pikachu follow me because it just makes sense to have it follow me for ~reasons~

Unova Pokemon wise though, probably Litwick! Or Maybe Cinccino or Snivy or ... just so many I would love to have follow me. And it would be even better if they had implemented it, and they allowed you to choose which Pokemon follows you; not just whoever is first in your party.
