    in addition to all the current features in Pokémon would you play a Pokémon game where you needed to use Water Type Pokémon to make sure your thirst doesn't run out, Fire Type Pokémon to build a fire for survival for whatever you needed it for, Plant Type Pokémon to help with food production... etc

    would you try a Pokémon game like that?

    I'd like to see Pokémon used in game for more than just battling and HM moves outside of battle

    Sounds like it'd be badass if executed the right way. I'd be all in.

      It could be either absolutely amazing, or a mess. I'd like to try it I guess

      Can you eat Wild Pokémon?

      I think that'd be amazing, it'd provide a lot more out-of-battle uses for moves.
      I thought of some stuff:
      Fire Moves: Keep you warm during the night, burn down forests, vandalize Oak's lab, etc
      Water Moves: Drink. Also use on farms to increase production. Also cool you down in deserts.
      Grass: Plant farms. If there is ever Pokémon multiplayer, raid other people's farms with Leech Seed.

      It sounds like a real nuisance to me, having to carry certain types of Pokemon all the time in order to survive.

        I go all in, koff~

        Miltank (milk), Cherubi (berries) and Blissey (eggs). Probably a water type so I can drink from water gun ew; a Pokemon that knows fire type moves. And Meowth. Meowth will provide me with as much money as I need. Then we can all roll in the cheeseburgers, koffi~

          I think it would be a good idea, but I think it would get old after a while.

          Quite. It would add an entirely new play style for the franchise. The Ultimate Nuzlocke Challenge is finalized!

            heck, why not, it would definitely be a nice change from the monotnous gameplay pattern that regular pokemon games have developed.

            if it was developed by the right people, it could be a roaring success, if not... let's just say it would end up a God-awful mess

              Absolutely!

              Zombie games are very popular nowadays so why not create a Pokemon game like that? To make a hideout, use a rock Pokemon to smash a hole in the wall and make a secret hideout? To go around at night (not that you would, because, you know, zombies) you'd get a piece of wood from a tree that was cut down and use a fire type Pokemon to create a flame.

              Ahhhhhh this sounds soooo goooooood!

                I don't think that it meant zombie survival. Would the zombies be pokemon???? It would destroy a lot of the innocence of the pokemon world. I have interpreted it in my mind as something as being a mix of animal crossing, minecraft and pokemon

                  well I won't play a game because I'd be too busy wishing it was real
                  in short, if it's virtual reality I'm up for it yo

                    As a one-off game, yeah. Sounds good.
                    I wouldn't like it to become it's own series like Mystery Dungeon and Ranger, though.

                      If it is made like the main games then no. It limits options too much and is just a nuisance to make sure you are set in everything. If it's like an Animal Crossing type Pokemon game then it could work with different Pokemon providing different supplies.
