    The BotW comparison was just for putting things into perspective with the open world idea. You are right though when you say that the large open world would be void of cool features and could get boring. But just watching Link ride on his horse in BotW, taking in the air and all of that advertisement crap just really appeals to me. Think of the possibilities: Pokemon everywhere for you to catch, and a huge, expansive area.

      I get how some might like it but felt that was why I found RDR2 such a dull game. So much of it was going from one place to another spending minutes just riding. I'm all for exploring but if it is just non stop landscape meh. GTA V was fun since you could drive and get there in funny extreme ways. Same for Spider-Man minus the driving. I get why people want open world but unless it is done right I'm ok with less open world but still exploration but maybe that is just me

        Gen 8 should also be an more open world, and make random people walk more than just staying and walk without knowing what's happens.

          Yeah, intelligent NPCs would be really cool. Also, let them have some sense during a battle, for Arceus's sake. Like switch out that bloody geodude, man! I've got a Feraligatr

              I always hated trainers with like 4 of the same pokemon. It is a bit creepy lol

              Basically someone has said that I thought already somewhere in this thread but my personal wants:
              - VS Seeker
              - Battle Frontier (never really got into it but what I did so was fun and also a feature I know a lot of people want back)
              - Pokeathlon type place
              - Contests but only if they're like Gen III contests tbh
              - Follow me though how Let's Go did it was perfect in which you can choose whether or not you want a Pokemon outside of its ball. That way people who didn't really like the feature don't have to use it!
              - pretty sure there are more that i'll remember later pft.

              I 100% agree with a larger region. I don't think it necessarily has to be open world or even in a similar vein to BotW where it's just a free-for-all from the very beginning, but this region feels a little small and linear and limited.

              I would also love to see more pseudo-online features, though given that it's a Pokémon game I'm not really holding my breath. It's hard to describe what exactly I'd like to see but I think Secret Bases are a good analogy... would be awesome if there were a similar concept that worked online.

                I'm gonna agree with some of what's already been said: shakey grass/bubbly water with rarer pokemon like gen 5, A good postgame PLEASE(!!!) like gens 4-5, following pokemon would be great, I really really hope Ride pokemon make a comeback (no more HMs please), something like Pokemon refresh
                I'm also gonna disagree with some of what's been said: I do NOT want an "intelligent" pokedex. rotom dex almost ruins gen 7 for me. Like I love the games, but I hate rotom with a passion

                They gotta bring good post-game back. I think that's a huge part of why Emerald was so good, and there's no reason they couldn't bring something similar into Gen 8. That's the main feature I'd like to see. I think there are some features from the newer games that are helpful like how you know your target destination in Alola due to the red flag icon - although I'm sure some prefer needing to explore their surroundings to find out what to do next.

                Where do I begin?

                Pokémon World Tournament

                Battle Frontier

                VS Seeker — this made post-game so much more enjoyable! If I don't have a good way to level up after the League, chances are I'll drop the game. :(

                Pokéathlon — while I've never tried before, it sounds perfect for the new region! How much fun would that be? Especially if you could play with others!

                Contests — I actually really enjoyed Sinnoh's contests, so I'll be happy if they make a return.

                XY style customisation — I don't want ten of the same piece of clothing with limited colour choices. I want ten different pieces of unique clothing!

                Secret Bases — heck yes!!

                Amity Square — I want an open area where I can walk my Pokémon! Even if only certain Pokémon are allowed. Let's face it, I don't think Game Freak will animate countless different Pokémon to follow us throughout the game. ;__; With LGPE, all they had to do was Kanto, right?

                Bikes — I loved my bikes...

                Poké Ball customisation — it was a really cool feature in Sinnoh! Plus, I'd like to have the choice of swapping the Poké Balls of captured Pokémon.

                Seeing wild Pokémon in the overworld (just like in LGPE) rather than having random encounters would have been my #1 most wanted feature, but it looks like that has already been debunked by the trailer ahaha. ;__;

                  I want to see a feature similar to the Pokemon Stadium minigames. I think it could be done on Switch. It would be a nice change and a break from regular play, especially if you can play online with others. Most importantly though is the postgame and the difficulty level. I want as many tough battles as possible after the champion. I want it so that after I'm finished with the postgame my pokemon's levels are still scaling with enemy trainers up to a very high level.

                    This one might be a given, but I'll be really disappointed if Pokemon-Amie/Refresh doesn't return. :( I had fun playing with my Eevee and all, but it really hurt the game for me not being able to do so with any of my other Pokemon.

                      - The PSS: Yes, I know the Switch doesn't have a bottom screen, but I'm sure they can come up with something similar.
                      - Old Exp. Share: That doesn't mean removing the new Exp. Share, you could easily change it so you can select the amout of Pokémon in your party you would like to share experience.
                      - Battle Frontier: Pretty self explanatory.
                      - Real events for Mythical Pokémon: Do something similar to the Arceus, Darkrai and SHaymin events and not give them like mail in the Pokémon Center.
                      - Super Training: I know hordes and SOS were easier ways to EV train, but ST wouldn't hurt as another alternative. Especially since it's easier for beginners.
                      - Challenge/Easy mode: Pretty self explanatory too, but make them available since the beginning of the game. Maybe an option to change it in-game too?

                        - Pokeathlon, or something that's Pokeathlon-like in a way you get rewards for playing minigames. I think it's fine to bring back like say contests and make it that you get points to buy stuff everytime you win.

                        - Wonder trade

                        - playing with your mons.

                        dat following pokemon thing. and day/night and seasonal cycle. that one was heavenly with Gen 5. speaking of gen 5, it would be great if you bring back the Pokemon World Tournament.

                            Having been replaying White recently, I think dark grass and phenomena really need to be brought back and never ever removed. Maybe they could just change rustling grass a bit and make it more frequent and have a little bit more variety of Pokémon (95% Audino in nearly every route feels like a bit too much when you're looking for rare mons), but I'd be happy even if they just brought it back as it was.

                              since most people already mentioned lots of features, I'll just mentioned the weather system from BW. I like how the weather actually changes in the same location, rather than like, oh it's always clear weather throughout the game except this one route which always rains for some reason (and sandstorm for deserts if there's one). This would actually make the game more 'immersive'. The weather system should be polished well, of course, that way it would make every replay feels different.

                              Imagine you begin your journey on a rainy day with your trusty Scorbunny, and the weather forecast displays "we expected the rainy weather lasted until the player becomes the Champion." :P

                              That would be neat, yeah. Something more involved. Personally I'd like to see the DexNav back given it doesn't seem like we have LGPE's overworld wild pokemon thing anymore.

                              Maybe not that much rain, haha. But agreed - more random weather (and seasons!), please.

                                I've been replaying ORAS and noticed that I definitely love the soaring in the skies feature. This feels like what should've been a great replacement to HM Fly. Was dissapointed they didn't include this feature in Alola, I always find it super enjoyable riding on Latios and don't mind the cutscenes at all, the freedom you felt when you can soar across entire Hoenn... is so satisfying!

                                And while we're at it, make all the battles take place during soaring to be Sky Battle please, feels really awkward when I can send out my Sceptile to battle mid-air in ORAS. And perhaps the Sky Trainers from Kalos can make a return also, which can only encounter during soaring, the Sky Battle was really lackluster back in Kalos which most people forgot and maybe disliked...?

                                Re-battling trainers. The VS seeker made grinding easier and quicker and sometimes its nice rematching trainers again. The new exp share is great but I always turn it off cause it makes leveling up too easy and eventually makes your party all over leveled. Something like the Pokeathalon would be nice too. Anything that makes post-game more fun and interesting. There's nothing in gen 7 that made the games replayable after beating the main storyline.

                                  I would like the dark grass and phenomena, and phenomena for dark grass, maybe some Pokémon in the phenomena can run of you if you go too fast, and move to other tiles. A new Pokémon World Tournament. Pokémon Following or areas where Pokémon can get out of it's Pokéball... Come on, GameFreak, you do all gen 1-7 animations, and you use the same exact 3d models! Even LGPE models looks better.
                                  I want to see a Post-Game where you explore a new part of the region, that was entirely unaccesible before, like in BW2 or in LGFR, I also want to go in new islands to follow a Roaming Flying Legendary/Mythical, Mythical/Legendary and even pseudo-legendary events, like go with 2 specific Pokémon at specific places in your party like in RSE to catching the Regis, or braile, follow a specific vibration via switch control to find out where to dig/dive for finding them... A new mechanic that allows us to use dig in some places to go underground, and the dive system... I want back almost everything that was introduced in Gen 5,3 and 7, like Pokéstar studios, Contest, Pokérides, Dunsparce evolution...
