From 1:41 to 1:45, in the new trailer, the protagonist is running, while a patch of grass sparkles, and then he steps on top of the patch, and then gets an item or something. Could this be an improved Dowsing Machine? What else could it be?
at first I thought that was a shiny patch, like the Pokeradar back in Gen IV. But when the protagonist got an item, I thought it was another new thing. I never thought of Dowsing Machine, though. Seems reasonable.
Ooh didn't notice that! Perhaps there's a 50% chance to find a certain Pokemon, and a 50% chance to find an item? I dunno, I find it strange you can find items from it. I'd very much like a pokeradar of sorts and for it to be an item or something to optionally find either just Pokemon or just items. :3
This sounds really fun, actually. I liked the introduction of shaking patches of grass - mainly to abuse Audinos - but this is a really good use for them, if it turns out to be as Reshiram Man describes it. It could certainly be a new way to get rare items on a semi-regular basis.
I seriously thought I closed this after I edited my post but apparently I didn't. Opps.
Anyway since we know what the Sparkling grass is there prolly isn't any more discussion to be had on that specific topic, but if you wanna discuss the Fes Missions or any of the new features for B2W2 please visit New Game Features.
