This is somewhat like Doronjo's in that it's based off a "what if" in regards to the region, however it could relate to anywhere really!

So one of the things that France is known for is the French Revolution. Lemme c/p a little from Wikipedia to explain!

The French Revolution (French: Révolution française; 1789–1799), was a period of radical social and political upheaval in France that had a lasting impact on French history and more broadly throughout the world. The absolute monarchy that had ruled France for centuries collapsed within three years. French society underwent an epic transformation, as feudal, aristocratic and religious privileges evaporated under a sustained assault from radical left-wing political groups, masses on the streets, and peasants in the countryside.[1] Old ideas about tradition and hierarchy–of monarchy, aristocracy, and religious authority–were abruptly overthrown by new Enlightenment principles of equality, citizenship and inalienable rights.
How would you feel if a major part of the games were related to class - and citizens were fighting for rights to do what they wanted? Like say if they weren't a certain social class they wouldn't be allowed in to a certain location - maybe even as bad as a gym? Or do you think something as heavy as the French Revolution won't be covered or referenced to? And even if these games aren't based on France, do you think class in general could become something of more important? If class was more evident would this shape the ways the games appear, especially if it improved the further you went on in the games, or say something couldn't be treated at certain Pokemon centers because they weren't upper class? How else do you think this issue/idea could be tackled? Also do you think this could lead to conflict, maybe even a small civil war between different towns or cities?
