Unfortunately it limited how well the map could have been explored. At least Surf should have been required, imo.

Though it was nice that I didn't need a Pokemon devoted entirely to HMs to navigate the main storyline. Still better than HGSS, 8 HMs lol... e_e
My biggest gripe with HGSS is how you need HMs to fight Red. I think you need Rock Climb and Surf IIRC.

In general, you only need HMs as a way to stop the player's progression into areas he's not supposed to go yet. But, since Unova is fairly linear, they solved it with story-driven blockades. I liked it.

Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire, the day Pokémon pulled a Dallas and jumped the shark.
