    Patience is worth it in the end I guess =] But yeah, when games aren't difficult, its not worth buying, challenge is what motivates me to keep playing.

      how about, defeating gym leaders in any order you feel like, and the levels of their pokemon is based on how many badges you have, and choosing your hometown, where there WILL be a local lab with starter pokemon

      different starters with different types for each city would be awsome

      and get rid of the way HMs work right now

      make the game more personal, and give it less of a sense that everything is one straight road to the E4 instead of a choice

      choosing contests or gym battles would be cool,

      how about becoming a gym leader after you master six pokemon of their respective type (dunno how that would work though...)
      gym leader face-offs on the pokemon league, like in the manga, maybe

      ...

      i like the idea of customizing your character too

      i dont think that's too much

        Why not the actual Pokemon League like they had in the anime at one point, with the preliminary rounds and such?

          That's a really good idea, because I hate the way that you beat the E4, then that's it. It's not challenging enough.

              I want to see the Orange Islands being used, because its basically the only region that Ash & Co. have been through that hasn't been used in an RPG.

                Not really, there are alot of other places/towns that are seen in the show that aren't incorporated in the games. E.g. Alamos Town.

                  All I want is a deep and more adult storyline, catch all 580 odd pokemon as it will be and defeat the Elite 4 is getting old now. Lets have those as side quests and have something really interesting and mythical. I want something to make me think.

                  Also an online Pokemon League would be good, officially held by nintendo every few months. Its got to be possible.

                  The character customisation ideas sounds good, however i feel picking a start town would be way too difficult to script as every town would have to have a start script, however more than 3 pokemon to choose from, or even the prof gives you a pokeball and you catch your first pokemon on your own in a safari zone like area.

                    I actually thought they would've done that in Gold and Silver when they first came out, but it turned out I was wrong. :P
                    I would like them to be used, but that would be a lot of annoying surfing D: Though air balloons and flying there (you control your flying) would be cool.

                        My opinion it should be: Water, Fire, Dark, Grass, Steel, Dragon, Electric and Ice

                        Elite 4: Psychic, Normal, Fighting and Poison

                        Champion: Mixed

                          In my old project for a Pokemon game project, I had 10 Gyms:

                          Dark, Grass, Ground, Dragon, Ghost, Electric, Ice, Flying, Fire, Poison.

                          Dark needs a gym, since it hasn't had one yet. Ground, Dragon and Poison need more gyms. :#

                            Screw breaking tradition... smash it! Maybe they'll start some non-type based gyms. Example, start off with a 'cute' gym, using only cute/baby Pokemon? I don't know, just a passing thought.

                            interesting idea. Maybe have the elite four with the four legendary whatevers. I'd love a cute gym, or a 'scary gym'. If we have to go for types - another poison would be cool. I love the poison type.

                              Yeah, the story lines are horrible they are all the same only new pokemon. They have small side-quest differences but that is about it. The online Poke League would be an awesome Idea, only what about hackers? Character customization would be cool, but very hard to program for GBA or NDS.. They do need a new way to get starters, something really cool.

                                  In no particular order ;) But skip rock for Poli-sake..

                                    Alright, the deal with character customization is that the manga and anime would sort of fall apart (Brock, Misty, May, Dawn, Red, Blue, Green, etc...).
                                    There should also be a good non-DS game that has a good storyline and awesome Wi-fi capabilities.
                                    A battle frontier with like 10 symbols
                                    A darker storyline
                                    Pokes following you around would be awesome
                                    Like a desert area, tundra, swamp, sahara, canyon, ...THE MOON
                                    Like skis you can buy or a skateboard/scoooter/bike/skates each with like different effects. Maybe clothes for like an icy area or desert area
                                    The ability to ride on a pokemon (Doduo from pokemon ranger)
                                    They should have diving back
                                    A serious rival like silver
                                    Something like shiny pokemon or the pokerus but different
                                    To travel to different regions but like with levels up to 90
                                    Better evil organizations
                                    More fossil pokemon since there have to be like 100s that are extinct not just 2
                                    pokemon contests with a battle portion like in anime
                                    Tougher elite 4 and events after elite 4
                                    gasp gasp....that's all I have to say XD

                                      Starters Speculation:

                                      I'll start of by listing out the starters that currently exist and any observations pattern-wise:

                                      Kanto-
                                      Bulbasaur
                                      Charmander
                                      Squirtle

                                      Johto-
                                      Chikorita
                                      Cyndaquil
                                      Tododile

                                      Hoenn-
                                      Treeko
                                      Torchic
                                      Mudkip

                                      Sinnoh-
                                      Turtwig
                                      Chimchar
                                      Piplup


                                      I have noticed how all the regions have at least one reptilian-based starter. All the starters of Kanto where based on some sort of reptile (Bulbasaur was based of a dinosaur, Charmander was a Lizard/Dragon {I know Dragons are fiction, but they seem to be Reptilian), and Squirtle was a turtle.)
                                      Johto Had 2 Reptilemons... Chikorita was a Dinosaur like Bulba was. and Tododile was a Crocodile (Or Alligator? both are reptiles).
                                      Hoenn and Sinnoh both had one. The Grass Starters, Treeko (Gecko) and Turtwig (Turtle) respectively.
                                      ALL GRASS STAERTERS SO FAR HAVE BEEN REPTILIAN.

                                      Next, following the Fire Starters-
                                      Like I said before, Charmander is based of a Lizard or Dragon. (Both are reptiles {Yes, I know Dragons are fictional, but you can say they're Reptilian)
                                      Cyndaquill, Johto's Fire Starter, appears to be mammalian (I think he's supposed to be an Echidna)
                                      Torchic was a baby chicken. Chicken=Bird.
                                      Chimchar, like Cyndaquill was also Mammalian, this time, based of a monkey.
                                      REPTILE-MAMMAL-BIRD-MAMMAL

                                      Finally, the Water starters-
                                      As I said, Squirtle is a Turtle, and is Reptilian.
                                      Like I mentioned before as well, Tododile is based on either an alligator or a crocodile, both of which are reptiles
                                      next is Mudkip.... I have no idea what the hell he's supposed to be.
                                      And Lastly, Piplup. He's a Penguin, which is a bird.
                                      REPTILE-REPTILE-something amphibious-BIRD


                                      ~~

                                      I think it's safe to assume that the grass starter will once again be reptilian.
                                      HOWEVER. The Torchic-Piplup thing also sets it up to be some kind of flightless bird.
                                      So I dunno. Maybe an Emu =/ (Lol, an Emu)

                                      As for the Fire starter:
                                      It CAN'T be an Amphibian since it's Fire-type.
                                      I say it's gonna be Reptilian. Dunno why. Though, a Fryger would be pretty cool. =3
                                      Meh.

                                      And the Water Starter:
                                      I dunno... Probably an amphibian... like a Frog?



                                      Meh. I dunno. =/

                                      How about if they have all 12 starters up for choice at the beginning, that would be useful and very cool. Also I kinda want Pokemon to be on the PSP, It'll have better graphics wont it?

                                        I so so agree. It should be called Frostbite.
                                        ---
                                        Weather, expecially snow coverage and sea ice, depending on the actual date, as we have pokemon limited to real-time night now. Outfits should also change, as well as the location and finding of pokemon.
                                        Did I mention sea ice? Yes, iceberg with possibility to "ride" on them, just not as a reliable transportation method, just for the realistic niche.
                                        I want the next region to be based upon the Sakhalin island-lots of Ice-types!
                                        Abilities: We need an Ice-version of Water/Volt Absorb, as well as a non-Uber pokemon with Drizzle and Drought. And of course, new traits for pokemon representing the four seasons, as I'm about to mention.
                                        New pokemon: Four beings representing the four seasons, each can be caught only according to the real season (and if you live in the northern or southern hemisphere).
                                        1) First, my love, the winter-Ice/Ghost, the Subzero pokemon, having the Moister Cloak trait, giving it immunity to both Water and Ice (it doesn't make much sense that Winter itself should be harmed by Blizzards, isn't it?). Water-type aspects and a unique move of Rigid Air-making any foe beeing hit by Icy Wind (and losing speed) at the end of each turn.
                                        2) Second, the spring-Grass/Water typing, the Sustenance pokemon, having the blessed Rain trait, making it immune to any disadvantage of any non-Rain weather effect, making it immune to Hail and Sandstorm damage, giving it 100% powered Water-type moves in Sun, and even healing 1/2 HP by Synthesis, Morning Sun and Moonlight, while still retaining an inability to freeze in Sun. Psychic-type aspects and a unique move of Fragrance Wind-a Grass-type version of Ominous Wind/Silver Wind/Anceintpower, just with 100BP and 10-16PP.
                                        3) Third , the summer-Water/Fire typing, the Monsoon pokemon, having the Humidity trait-both Fire and Water-type moves used by this pokemon will have 150% power in both Rain and Sun. Electric-type aspects and a unique move of Cloudcry-100BP, 10-16PP, and cases permenant rain right after striking.
                                        4) Fourth, the autumn-Steel/Grass typing, the preparedness pokemon, having the Wind Blow trait, doubling the power of all wind-based moves, such as Icy Wind and Ominous Wind, as well as preventing Tailwind from ending as long as this pokemon remains in battles, and reciving 50% less damage from Flying-type moves. Ground-type aspects and a unique move of Ending Wind-100BP, 10-16PP, and also forces a random switch-out just like Roar.
                                        I also want an Ice/Dragon, Electric/Dragon and Fire/Dragon trio, all with Levitate. A Glalie evolution with Ice/Dark typing would do great, as well as a Jynx evolution. A Delibird evolution just needs to happen. Id'e also like an Ice/Steel pokemon with Levitate, as well as a Ghost/Psychic Levitating angel pokemon. A Levitating Ghost/Steel would be a monsterous defensive type combination. Also, more Grass/Ice and Ice/Ghost. Froslass and Abomasnow are so great! And of course-an Ice/Electric Levitating storm cloud pokemon. I really like Levitate for some reason...
                                        New Moves: Besides the instant Freezing move already mentioned, Id'e like to see ElectroKick, as well as Frost Tail and "just" Frost, beeing an Ice-type version of Stealth Rock.
                                        I really like this thread...keep going!

                                          For HM moves for next generation, I personally think that Cut, Fly, Surf, and maybe Strength will most likely stay as they are pretty much standard for the games. I can't see Defog staying for the next gen games, and I'm kind of iffy about Rock Smash and Waterfall.

                                          I'm kind of leaning towards Waterfall still being an HM next gen, and possibly Rock Smash too but I'm not sure.

                                          I got through the game without defog and only found it after doing the E4 in D/P, so it is quite useless.

                                          Surf and Fly will definately be in there for obvious reasons. They dont change it much every gen so I think Strength, Rock Smash, Cut and Waterfall will stay.

                                          Rock Climb and Defog really didnt work, I hope they are replaced with Dig and Flash.

                                            Multiple Regions and Random Weather
                                            eg: one day it could rain in route 401 the next day it could be sunny, then snow for a week.
                                            A G,S,C remake would be good they are the best game even now.

                                            Not so sure about a ghost/steel type good idea but it wouldn't make sense.

                                            Froslass you're probably going a bit over the top with your Legendaries, they are a bit to powerful, almost invicible they would need to be a bit more balanced. Every Pokemon has a major weakness.

                                              Id like to see them make an hm move that moves boulders and smashes rocks because having strength and rocksmash always seemed rather tedious same thing with surf and waterfall. why can't you just surf up the waterfall or something =/. Thats just me
