    Well, think about this guys: what about having a permanent companion of some sort? Think Pokemon Colosseum, where you (as Wes) play with a partner (Rui). Would you want the games to be something reflecting this, or would you rather have this as more of an optional feature?

    For me, I'd think it'd serve as an interesting mix having some sort of a permanent partner, but only if you can choose who it can be. It's a pretty iffy double-edged sword, if I do say so myself, and I don't think it's too overly necessary, though it could help to change how Gym/Elite Four battles are done. What do you rest of you guys think?
    That would be awesome; imagine if you can choose the opposite gender player to help you in battles.
    But yeah, I would want optional so I'm not too irritated. Like talk to your partner, "Hey, what do you want to do?" >I'd like to be alone for a bit. >Let's battle! >Let's trade! (etc.)

    I agree, I do feel that this would be the more preferable route, because not everyone is really inclined to have someone follow them each and every step of the way, but I feel that, in case the partner is needed, that you can have them show up and help you out, and whatnot. :3

    Honestly I feel like having a permanent companion would just be way more hassle that it would be worth. I felt the same way about Colosseum too, as Rui just tended to get in the way more than she was actually helpful. Plus, she had the ability to see Shadow Pokémon, which Wes can not. A companion in the main games doesn't really have a lot to offer in my opinion in options that you can't do yourself.

    Hm...you bring up a valid point! I just thought it'd be an interesting addition, but the more I think about it, having a permanent companion wouldn't be too necessary. The worst part about it is as you said, they tend to get in the way more than actually help, I guess. u___u It's hard to find a reason why a second companion is needed, but it'd still be a cool thing to add? xD
