While everyone is saying the number of gyms and badges and all that good stuff that could be incoporated into the game. I cant help but think about the # of pokemon in your party. in previous games they had 6 which normally isnt a bad thing but sometimes if i want a certain pokemon i find it annoying making room for them. also with hm slaves, have more then 6 slots can free up favorite pokemon who you dont want to be a hm slave.

thoughts? concerns? comments?

ps im going with the grass starter all the way

I don't think that they would change the number of Pokémon able to be in your party so far in the series...

maybe not but it would really change things up a bit, imagine your rival having 8 pokemon and you having 8 pokemon, and dont forget gym leaders and the elite 4 each having 8 pokemon (any more then 8 would be gay).

I doubt it. But I admit it would be (kinda) cool.

it would be diabolical and evil.

Wifi battles would be even more painful.

Quite agreed. It would be almost impossible.

1.) I think that six is enough to make a pretty balanced team.
2.) Since when was that a proper time to use the term "gay"? -__-

While I'd LOVE to carry more Pokemon with me, it would seriously irk and irritate me, drive me to the point of insanity, and exhaust me when it comes to battling 8 on 8 throughout the game. It might come to point where its just too tiring and time consuming to play. It's not a good idea to carry more than 6.

But! I wish we could learn more than 4 moves per Pokemon. That would help a lot when it comes to HM slave Pokemon...

Usually I find it hard to train a party of 6..Having more could be nice since I wouldn't have to limit my pokemon that I can hold on me, but it would be horrible having to train them all. I'd prefer it if we could just get pokemon from the PC through the new poketch/pokenav-type thing that we will have in b&w. That way if I wanted to train multiple pokemon at once I could just send some to the PC, withdraw a few others and train them without having to even go back to the pokemon center.

since i only train 2-3 people anyway, and i only need a max of 3 hm slaves, i think 6 is perfect. as for competitive, it would kill it.

Changed the thread title slightly so that it doesn't look like the title of another thread. :p Hopefully it'll discourage people from reporting it as a duplicate when it's not.

And on-topic, I think any more than 6 Pokémon would be imbalanced... though I personally wouldn't mind at all since I wouldn't have to worry about running out of room for Pokémon I like on my team.

I really doubt it, tbh. As some people above me said, it'd make it quite a pain for the competitive battlers. But yeah, tbh, I'm not bothered. I'm not a competitive player, after all. xD;

Six is fine. Most matches take a long time with six already. Eight is too much. Nuff' Said.

Just like having four moves per Pokémon adds restriction yet still can promote making proper move decisions, having a team of six would be enough. Add more and the game becomes a little easier, given that you can then have more slots of strong Pokémon.

More moves would be great, but eight pokemon is not needed since sometimes just not having the pokemon I need reminds me to go to the pokemon center. On my DSI i have a level 87 Empoleon, and its nearly indistructable so I forget to go to the pokemon center and restore its PP haha good thing I haven't fought the Elite Four and made that mistake

Little known Fact: Did you know that in the development stages of Ruby and Saphire, they planned for there to be more than 6 party pokemon and more than 4 moves, they actually considered this idea, honestly!

I would really like for there to be eight Pokémon in my party. Because then I could use two HM slaves without having to dig into my six main Pokémon. -.-

Ugh...why does every complaint about the games trace back to HMs?! Am I the only one that doesn't mind having HM moves on my active team? Am I the only one that doesn't mind having ONE slave for the only two useless moves (Cut and Flash/Defog)?

Six party pokemon is enough. It's a mechanic that's too deeply established in the series' canon to be changed anytime soon. Besides, how would they explain away something like that in the anime (it's the only thing that the anime does to accurately mirror the games nowadays)?
