I have some suggestions for this game, but they are only my opinion:
- Make HG/SS graphics (I know that one is tough, it's just a suggestion)
- Allow players to choose between any of the characters in the entire game. (Old Man, Youngster Joey, etc.) Just make it so it only shows the hand throwing the Poke Ball or something. If not, at least allow players to choose between the 5 main protagonists (and their female counterparts) (Red/Leaf, Ethan/Lyra, Brendan/May, Lucas/Dawn, Hilbert/Hilda)
- Make NEW regions, NEW gym leaders, NEW elite four, everything. Almost like a new game. This would DEFINITELY attract me even if I hated Pokemon.
Again just suggestions, I wish you good luck!
