Welcome everyone to the new Pokémon General Polls and Chats series (aka PGPC for short)! PGPC is a new weekly event stemming from past series here in Pokémon General like the PokéPOTW and What Would You Do?, where we throw a topic at you every week to discuss and decide over. Sometimes these threads will be a deep dive into a certain parts of the franchise, or something as simple as pitting a couple Pokemon against each other to see who are your favorites! With something a little different going on every week, it's always a good idea to stop by and see what we're discussing in each PGPC!

Now with all that said, this week's topic is:

"If you were granted 1 wish to change any aspect of the Pokémon franchise, how would you use it?"

Lucky you, you've found one of Jirachi's magical wish tags, which will grant you any wish in the Pokemon universe that you desire! And there's no limit to how big or small that it can be- anything from retconning an entire region to changing Espeon's shiny color to something other than lime green. So with this enormous power in your hands... what do you wish for?

I would make Ice type defensively stronger. I'd take away Fighting's super effectiveness against it...and since it is my wish after all I'll take away Rock's super effectiveness too for good measure. I'd also give Ice its own resistances to Water, Dragon and Ground.

I really wish they'd stray away from their usual story where every game follows yet another ten year old on their quest to collect badges and battle the Elite Four and meanwhile also faces the regional evil gang. Playing as a meaningful character with an engaging story would be really cool for once.

And yes, I'm aware there's an island challenge in Gen VII, but in the end you're just collecting "badges" again, only Gyms work slightly differently.

Same here!

Let's see the trainer get inveigled into the evil team, or be made to doubt the evil team's morality or something. A true jerk for a rival - not some wisecracker or inherent nice guy. A stabbing... a conspiracy! Pokéballs are distributed, but with an inbuilt computer and tracker so that the Pokémon inside are scanned, ripe for stealing once they're nice and strong.

The company is in cahoots with the bad team, and as the main character you have to unravel the whole thing... the champion plays the role of support, but he's just as rotten as the rest of them! When you confront and defeat him in an unofficial match, you're made his replacement by automatic. That's not the end of the game, though. You have to crush the remaining factions of the evil team with the help of a Legendary Pokémon found in the heart of a supposedly non-existent cavern that is full of fantastical dangers.

... I genuinely did not mean to type up an alternative plot, but this is sounding pretty psyducking legit. I'd play it.

Another anime series focusing on the game protagonists. Not to replace the current one or anything, since I enjoy it a lot as it is, but I’d love both! Even if the series focusing on the games is your standard 12 or or 24 episodes per region.
