Remake of this thread!

So if you guys read that thread, you're very well aware of the savings mechanics used in HeartGold and SoulSilver, whereas your mother would save money for you, and then she would sometimes spend it on a whim or something like that, but usually it won't be that much money (I hope!). Though it's not really an issue as she usually spends a couple hundred pokedollars or so buying decorations for your room, so it's usually not a big deal, right? xD

Would you like to see this feature back, and if so, would you like it altered in any manner? Maybe you'd like to see your mother purchase other items with your money, or perhaps you can give her a grocery list of what to buy and what not to buy with your money? Discuss~

As long as the mother doesn't pester you every 5 minutes, saying that she has bought something with your saving money, I don't mind!

I'd also like to see a bank to save your money; that's also a nice way to save money! Plus you can get deals with banks like interest, etc.

Honestly I never really saw the point in your mother saving your money for you. All she really did was buy items that most of the time you had no use for, and then it just sat there and accumulated. I'd rather just have all my money with me if nothing is going to happen to it. However, the idea of banks and gaining interest for the money you store in it would be something that'd be an interesting concept. Although it's really not totally practical (since in-game money isn't really a hard thing to get), it'd be interesting if only for the interest part of it.

Whoops, forgot to reply to this~!

I wouldn't mind for something like this to make a return! I mean, it would make more sense to have an actual bank, but it doesn't really matter either or, as long as I have someplace to store my money, I guess. xD;

I'd prefer a bank to having our mother save our money again. At least that would mean less phone calls and no one spending our savings on unnecessary items we don't need. Also, the idea of having an interest rate is something I'd like to see happen. Also, it could introduce the idea of debit cards in the games too.

Just going back and thinking about this topic again (the bank thing), is there really a point for it? With how easy it is to get money, and the fact that money is infinitely stored (until you hit the 999999 limit), is there really a point to having a bank? I feel the same way about your mom saving money to; there really isn't any point for it when storage of money (which is the main purpose of a bank) is infinite. It's not like your character is lugging around a giant wallet with him/her to carry the money =P

Nah, the bank system doesn't really have a point anymore...or at least it's more of a "nice" feature than one that's really necessary.

The only reason it was in GSC in the first place was because of how brutal the money system for losing was in the earlier gens, considering you lose like half your money. And then FRLG came around and changed the formula so it's not as harsh. Go figure why it wasn't in RSE, but I guess it wasn't even really thought about.

Only reason it was in HGSS was because it's an artifact from Gen II, anyway.

It doesn't really matter to me if this returns as I do not spend my money until the Pokemon league(except some on Pokeballs). I liked this feature but I just never really found it too useful.

Actually, how about a bank building? Ever since they removed the pokemart buildings (The Poke Economy got a huge slap in the face and forced the shop clerks to move into a pokemon center) I think a new building is in order. They did something like that in earthbound, right?(NOTE: I have never played it before, so its a complete guess).

Having our mother to store money isn't a bad idea for X and Y, nor is having a bank system. It can be pointless or useful to us, and it depends if we want to store our money somewhere to someone or just keep it ourselves.

However, I didn't like the idea of having our mother buying things using the money we stored, and we end up receiving just some small item. I wouldn't want our mother to call us over and over again, saying she bought this and that. A bank is all right, though it shouldn't be too practical. It should be like a bank in the PMD games, where we just deposit and withdraw the money (coins) we've collected.
