I think it's time for pokedex entries to be longer than a sentence or two. You could still hit the 'B' button to skip it if you weren't interested in the paragraph about habitats, diets, and behaviors.

This might seem like a trivial detail to some people, but walking Pokemon.
I loved that in HG/SS (and Yellow, I suppose). There were so many features added in X/Y just for aesthetic reasons, I was surprised walking Pokemon didn't make a comeback.

I suppose there are complications, the X/Y world is supposed to look more realistic and to scale - imagine what walking with your Wailmer or something would look it. Still, I hope they find a way to implement it in future games.

Heh. Having your poke' pals walk behind you was something I remember enjoying since the days of Yellow. I was glad that feature came back in HG/ SS. I would've gladly traded some useless feature in X & Y, like the PR videos, to have your pokemon stalk you again. XD
I'd die, having an adorable little Espurr or Sylveon stalk me everywhere. Just, omg.

Personally, I'd love for the animations when pokemon enters or exits battle to be more like the anime, with the white light when they come out of the pokeball and the red light when they return. I would also like if it was possible to evolve mid-battle.

And Freely roaming pokemon from your team like in HG and SS would be cool.
And replacing rollerskates with the old speedbike+trickbike combo would be awesome.
Personally, i dislike also the way the camera moves in lumiose

That evolving mid battle idea is awesome! And to commend on the color of the pokeball mechanics... it would be really cool to add a legacy mode after you beat the game where you could swap out game aesthetics to match the orginal manga, pokemon adventures, the anime, pokemon stadium etc. A HUGE stretch i know but one can dream. I would expect though that by next christmas or maybe even the summer after that to see Pokemon Z will a vastly expanded post-game, a storyline revolving around zygarde, and of course the improved visuals, features, and potentially that wierd gym leader/champion swap thing they've been known to do.

The evolving mid battle wouldn't work so well with pokemon that change typings though (like Charizard). Thats probably why they didn't do it.

Pokeball customization (the ball itself).
Free roaming with any pokemon.

1) Some sort of overarching continuity like Red/Blue and Gold/Silver had.
I don't know how or with which region, but it would be really cool to earn 16 badges again (or maybe more) and have a bit of continuation with the story. Black/White just rehashed the same region for the sequels so it's not the same thing.

2) Cameos!
As far as I can tell the current gen has none. I'd love to be able to speak with and challenge old faces like Cynthia/Lance/Steven/Red etc. etc. I'm a bit disappointed they couldn't be bothered to put in at least one, to be honest, especially considering how many there were in Black2/White2.

3) A rival that isn't a robot.
Why not make a character with an interesting backstory that is actually competitive in nature instead of just wanting to be your friend and have friendly battles for the sake of friendship and friends? The rivals in the first 2 gens were interesting and fleshed out, particularly Silver, so I wonder why Game Freak couldn't have been bothered to write up something new instead of following this lame pattern.

4) Getting rid of HMs.
They're so tired now. This is the first game where I've actually wanted 6 Pokemon on my team (usually only have 3-4) but I couldn't because I had to carry around an HM slave. What's even worse is that there are more than 4 HMs and I can't think of any Pokemon that can learn all the important ones at once (Surf/Fly/Strength/Cut) so you have to go hit up your box a lot or be forced to carry 2 useless Pokemon. These have got to become items or something.

5) A more organised bag.
The bag in HeartGold/SoulSilver with all the pockets was perfect (Battle Items, Balls, etc.). Why did they stuff everything into one pocket and then on top of that make it some long drop down list? It's frustrating to have to look for anything now, and the sorting options don't remedy this. The old system was perfect and clean, I have no idea why they decided to change it and make it worse.

6) Running without holding B!

That's about all I can think of off the top of my head. A lot of these ideas are coming from what I liked about HeartGold (best game everrrrr) so I know Game Freak is capable of it.

The only thing I would like to see .... more clothing! Fancier clothing! Seasonal outfits! Especially dresses, also hats that are less ... well just less. A tiara would be cool too. More bike colors as well. The ability to cast mega evos in the PR vids. Custom PR video captions, or a lot more to choose from. Also stereoscopic through the whole thing, or not at all. I'm tired of having to turn it off for Pokemon because the switching between the stereoscopic 3D and the flat rendering gives me a headache.

Did I mention more clothing?

I'd really like to have event Pokemon being catchable ingame. New Gen Pokemon I don't see to much of a problem with still being event Pokemon (like the three unreleased gen 6 Pokemon) but at least more and more of the old ones should be catchable. The main reason is simply that there are so many legendaries that some of them get lost, be it to not being transfered to the next gen, getting no more events, or because they are wearing a Classic Ribbon preventing players from getting them through the GTS.
Otherwise it would end up in only competetive battlers and hardcore collectors having those pokemon who wouldn't even think about parting with them. That would mean the only possible way to get those Pokemon would be through hacking/cheating which many people dislike (including Nintendo/GF).

A pokemon that follows you, and I think one of the most important things is a freaking organized bag. Is it too much to ask?

More interesting gym battles. Ones with some sort of strategy, and with more than three pokemon. Also, on the topic of gyms, I'd like the gym leaders and elite for to sort of 'help' you defeat the evil group (Sort of like Black/White. That was great). I mean, you're some of the most powerful trainers and you leave it up to a kid?

I'd like to see more mega-evolutions. One Pokémon that truly deserves a mega form is, in my opinion, Skarmory. Skarmory is pretty good as it is right now, but a mega-evolution could make it even better. Once it mega-evolves, perhaps its defensive stats could get a boost? If not, then it should probably get a raise in its Attack and Speed. This way, it'll become ten-times easier to utilize it as sweeper. d: I would like to see a mega-evolution form for Metagross, too, as well as Jynx.

This seems to be kind of a broad topic, by the way, so I'm moving this over to Pokémon Gaming General.

1. More Megas.
2. Even more Megas.
3. The return of features such as Join Avenue and the PWT.
4. The return of Free Space, so we don't have to scroll down an incredibly long list to find the item we're looking for.
5. Move Tutors, but not the ones that charge you shards because finding a bunch of shards can be a pain. They should just charge you money.
6. Being able to see a Pokemon's summary screen on the GTS, so you don't get fooled by people saying "it haz 5/6 IVs lol".
7. The Ability Capsule having unlimited usage (200BP for an item you can only use once is ridiculous).
8. An AI that doesn't get hax every single time.

omg yes

The Pokeathalon and Leaves were awesome. It felt like something you actually wanted to do rather than some lame minigame tacked on. I want to transfer my Scyther with a full Shiny Leaf collection once PokeBank comes out, but I'm going to be sad to see that data go to waste

Oo wish list time of things I'll probably never see..

#1. For god sakes, make a story worth telling. This has been getting to me lately. I know Pokemon is designed for kids in mind. So is Kingdom Hearts. Can everyone in the Pokemon universe stop being so vague? If you want to tell some kind of epic story about trust, beauty, love, loyalty, ideals.. do it! I can seriously tell they want to do something amazing with the story, but there's always someone there that hits them with the retard bat.. and then they spit out a game like Black and White with it's nonsense "can't tell its head from its ass" story line.

#2. Make the "evil team" actually involved in the story, or remove them entirely. Here's my beef, and it ties into what I said above. Team Plasma were a bunch of idealists with what seemed like lofty goals.. but the way the story was told, the whole bunch of them were hypocritical of their own ideals, and not one of them really questioned it. Team Plasma would of fallen apart before it ever began. Then you have the 7 Sages, and I really don't understand why there needs to be 7, nor what a "sage" actually does since the only one who mattered was Ghetis.. they spend the entire game around acting like renfare wizards with their fancy names.. trying to evoke mystery and totally failing at it. You just didn't care. AT ALL. Opposite of that you had Team Flare, who for the most part, were a bunch of goof balls that were shoe horned in at the last minute of the game as - honestly - some kind of sidequest just so you can get your Xerneas or Yveltal. Its like they just didn't want to even try, and yet they did. If Lysandre never mouthed off at the begining that he was basically the obivious bad guy, you could of at least had suspended the disbelief a bit.. but alas.. I mean.. There's other ways you can handle this. The trainer could be the one trying to search down the title legendary themselves.. you don't speifically need this evil group doing all the work for you. The pokemon world also needs to man up and explain why all these gym leaders/elite four bad asses tolerate these nefarious groups. Are they really that lazy to the point where they let some untrained kid endanger themselves on their behalf? When no one in particular ever asked them to? Shouldn't it be their job to ensure that the bad guys never get close to the deathray machine, not yours? It may sound like I'm asking for something gritty here, but I'm actually not. I want a world and a story that I can actually appreicate.

Seriously, if the Evil team isn't actually directly linked to the trainer, there's really no point in even doing that whole thing anymore.

#3. Make your rival actually someone with a personality. They don't have to be a jerkhole like Gary, they don't need to "have issues" like Silver.. but I would like to get to know the dude/dudette you're fighting. The closest I've seen is Serena/Calem who is a decendant of great trainers.. you get the idea that they want to try hard to make their family proud of them -- only to be crushed completely by this newcomer no one really knows. That has to be frustrating. These things I like. Feeling things from your characters in your game is nice Gamefreak. Don't be scared. Take it up a notch. Heck, this goes for just about ANY major NPC in the game. None of this "had a pokemon battle in my room and now it's ruined but my mom volunteered to clean it up for me because pokemon are awesome" nonsense.

#4. Tone down the potency of Stealth Rock. It's not really a big deal so much anymore, but it really is a bit too good still. There's some really good Pokemon that just get destroyed on it without even doing anything. If they can find a way to make it function like Spikes do, where you have to layer them up.. I think that would be acceptable.

If you haven't guessed... most of my beef is with presentation, not the game itself.

I would like to see a whole range of things.

A darker and more mature story.
More in game info in the game.
An Hm machine which can perform Hms whithout giving them to your Pokemon.
Iv values replaced with friendship Values reflecting the whole message of Pokemon and making them truly friends and not numbers The ability to change natures.

All of this is included in my Pokemon Rom hack so read some of my threads in
the Rom hacking forum.

Yeah, the first one is my greatest wish come true. Not a necessarily dark one because Game Freak has proven in Gen. 6 that... that's not their thing.

I just want a GOOD story with characters that actually DEVELOP and have real PERSONALITIES instead of a like and a dislike. A character doesn't have to be obsessed with their hobby to actually have a hobby.

I also want an evil organization with plans that make actual sense and don't just garble stupid nonsense the whole game. I want villains that we can take SERIOUSLY. Galactic was... a step in the right direction but their ideals were pretty complicated. Aqua/Magma had the lamest goals ever, I think, and I couldn't take them very seriously. Team Rocket at least is sinister and a force to be reckoned with. Plasma is a joke... that isn't very funny. And Flare is the worse by far by being hard to take seriously and making no sense whatsoever. The whole thing about Z and Lysandre and the machine and all of that was just pure nonsensical Tauros crap that I barely understood.

I also wish for Ice types available earlier in the game instead of around the seventh or eighth gym.

actually, I think Team Flare's goals were pretty serious. Come on- mass genocide on a global scale? Not to mention, their reasoning behind doing what they (tried) to do was believable, justifiable, and one I could get behind. Thing is, they were just too small of an organization, weren't able to make a big enough impact to drive fear into the hearts of Kalosians, which was why no one really said much about them; probably didn't even know of "team Flare".
