So we've decided to ditch HMs for Ride Pokemon or something similar much like Sun & Moon have done. With that in mind I figure we should use this thread to plan what kind of Ride Pokemon we'll need and which Pokemon will fill that role. So far we have:

Surf Pokemon - Lapras

I think we need to talk about the Bicycle too. Are we replacing that with a Ride Pokemon?

For Flash, I suggest anyone from the Chandelure family.
For RockSmash, I suggest Donphan/Phanphy.
For Dive, I suggest Mantine.
For Cut, I suggest Farfetch'd or Scyther.
For Strength, any generic fighting type would do. Preferably a large one you can ride on. Snorlax? lol

    Snorlax isn't Fighting, although it's big and strong enough that it still makes sense. I like the other suggestions, except I'd love to see Lanturn for Dive.

    I like the idea of riding Donphan to break Rock Smash rocks. It could replace the bicycle, too.

    Can we have Donphan rolling and the player just trying to balance themselves on Donphan's back?

    Yes, and the player can jump upwards while Donphan is smashing a rock and then land back on it.

    Either makes sense for Donphan to do all 3 (bike, smash and strength) or we can piggyback off S/M and have Machamp.

    Basically my thoughts. Lanturn is the perfect Pokémon for dive imo.

    Flash: Chandelure
    Rock Smash/Strength/Bike: Donphan
    Cut: Scyther
    Surf: Lapras
    Dive: Lanturn

    Anything else we want to implement HM-wise? Waterfall? Whirpool? Rock Climb? Something new?

    Whirlpool makes sense for the region. I suggest Poliwhirl because it's stomache looks whirly. :^)

    Waterfall is a little tougher than cut, because the player needs to hitch a ride on the Pokemon, as there is an actual displacement. Most of the time, when you waterfall, it's while on your surf ride, and to the top of the waterfall (where this is more water, so again on your surf ride). Thus, I think the surf Pokemon should be the one using waterfall.

    I think we can go without Rockclimb being in the game in general, and instead introduce our own thing instead.

    What about Fly? Drifblim would be cool.

    Also, what exactly is "Whirlpool"? Is it getting rid of the whirlpool entirely, or spinning around the whirlpool to the other side?

      ok i'm just imagining a rock smash animation on a whirlpool and it's just fading away and i'm laughing too hard this isn't even funny

      +1 drifblim as long as it's like the dragonite bus from the original pokémon ranger

      If whirlpools will be used as a roadblock, they could just be a "power-up" for Lapras. There's no reason to have a new Pokémon to get rid of (or go through) the whirlpool.

      +1 on Drifblim from me!!!

      +1 on Lapras being on Whirpool.

      For Waterfall something that could run up it would be cool, Floatzel or Poliwrath maybe?

      I think Floatzel would be cool for climbing up waterfalls. Floatzel could be able to surf as well, and maybe go faster than Lapras (FBI wanted a fast Sharpedo), while Lapras is the normal Pokémon you can surf on early in the game and use for whirlpools.

      Besides being tedious to code, I'm fine with two surf users :X

      Could we do Defog? Now that it doesn't need to be a HM it'd be more cool and less irritating. It'd also fit kind of nicely on our icy island or by the sea on account of well... fog.

        I like the idea of having "upgrades" to the helper Pokemon, especially for the extra surfing abilities (whirlpool, waterfall).
        Maybe we could add the ability to swim against the current (really slowly) as an alternative to rock climb? This could actually replace whirlpool as a barrier.
