I don't think the game would suddenly be 1000x more amazing if you could walk diagonally. In fact, the game would be identical, you would able to walk diagonally.

Not all men...

Are all men stupid?

That's right.

Let's get rid of cars; after all, horses weren't broken and worked fine.

Sure, you don't need to fix what isn't broken, but it sure as hell doesn't hurt to improve it.

I don't really see the problem with just moving without diagonally, but I do wish Fly and Dive were more interactive to give us some 3D movement (3D=XYZ directions). I mean, during HG/SS, the dive application was more interactive, but the movement underwater was less than satisfactory. There wasn't any thick seaweed to travel through to find Pokemon, it was more like a cave.

I also wish Flying was more interactive. Why not let us move over the sky with our Flying Pokemon carrying us? Why not use the air as another area to interact with Pokemon? Have certain areas be filled with flying and dragon Pokemon capable of flying and make it as the sky is the only place to catch certain pokemons. There could also be a new weather pattern put into effect up in the sky, High Winds. All Pokemon except for Flying types move at half speed and they take some damage as well.

An since the Pokemon games are always trying to find a way to let players catch the legendaries they caught before in their new games, the new Weather Trio and Rayquaza could be up in the sky in their own little temples. Rayquazas could actual be the top of spiral tower from Ruby Sapphire. In fact, this application of air travel could be used in the Hoenn Reboot. Allowing for newer flying types and dragons to be found in Hoenn, as well as giving a more interactive feature to the games. Add this to the Dive app they had before, creating an entire area underwater.

Maybe the new game could have half of Lilycove and all of Mossdeep flooded. This way you could travel through the waters of the sea, as well as dive underwater to explore the ruins of these lost towns. There could be air pockets in places with a lot of rooms like the Art gallery and the Department Store.

Maybe Fallabor and Lavaridge could be covered in Ash and magma. Maybe you could use a Pokemon with Dig to explore the ruins there and learn about what had happened. The inhabitants of these lost cities could be relocated to new cities, like a Desert City for Lavaridge and the People of Fallabor could move to the mountain pass next-door.

The city of Pacifilodge could be the new bustling metropolis, having survived the flood and everything.

The ruins of Hoenn could have been made by the aftermath of Kyogre and Groundon's inevitable battle.

This might be a bit of a huge plot twist, especially when the last reboots were purely mechanic reboots and not story reboots, and the idea of a post-apocatalyptic Pokemon world is kind of already a Land of Orre thing, not a traditional Pokemon game.

HGSS didn't have dive in it. Did you mean BW/B2W2?

I'm also not sure what a sequel to RSE where the canon of those games is retconned by things being destroyed would actually achieve in terms of gameplay. Nor is a Hoenn reboot a given to happen in the first place, for that matter.

well, the reason I had the destruction was because it gives the player more room to explore. Explore an entire city underwater, uncover the remains of a town burred in Ash. And a city hidden in a desert. The desert would have to be a lot bigger, but yeah.

"There has to be a reason why Pokemon is also a better selling title than Metroid. Metroid has been around much longer than Pokemon and it still sells way better. So really its a stupid comparison since Metroid can't compete with Pokemon. Since its sells are worse its obviously a worse game franchise."

Please tell me you were kidding when you wrote this statement.

The time components were still a little clunky from Gold/silver, such as Berry growth and the tides, but the weather attribute was a nice addition to the playing and strategy to games. Kekleon was awesome trying to find as many as i could. The entire game was nothing but improvements aside from the clock.

And I LOVED the journal entry addition to FR/LG. Plus the Sevii Islands made it feel like I was cheating a little and getting to go to the Orange Islands.

Then Came Diamond/Pearl, which astounded me with its new 2.5 dimension feel. The clock was finally fixed, using the clock of the DS, which kept in check even when the thing was off, which was a problem back in the gameboy/GBA days. But other than a boost in creative art style, nothing major, They even removed Dive, so the boost directional movement was gone. They didn't even have whirlpools, which were cute in Gold/Silver.

Though they did bring back both Whirlpools and Dive in HG/SS. plus they added the Following Pokemon thing from yellow, which was nice. And they gave us the carrying pot for the nuts. I was on the fence on those, as the new clock would make it easy to check with the new nuts, but instead they let us keep the nuts on us as well.

Then came Black and White, which is so young that I feel guilty talking about it. I didn't see anything new about it other than the 2.75D. We still don't have 3D yet and we won't really until we get 1st person of just over the character 3rd person perspective in these games. I don't remember anything new.
Wrong, BW has the best storyline, the music, the characters, the evil team were very involved,
unlike other games were you have to defeat the champion to end the storyline, the Team
rules the Pokemon league, what I'm trying to say is every generation is unique,
I like every generation, if anyone doesn't is not a real Pokemon fan.

Also don't forget the World tournament in B2W2

I did forget about the involvement plasma had with the game. I also especially liked how you could choose which elite four you got to fight.

You can't really say that you have to like every generation or else you are not a fan. Look at star trek? Doctor Who? There are people that choose one incarnation over another and think one sucks compared to the other incarnations.

And I never played B2/W2, which is why i never mentioned it
