*I know there are already threads talking about the various upcoming features of the games/the implementation of old ones. If this is too close, please merge or close. Sorry for the possible inconvenience!

So if gamefreak were to add any season-like feature to the games, what do you think it would be, and do you want a similar feature included in the games? Two instances I've heard of are the weather in game coordinating to the weather outside. So if your 3DS was somehow connected to the weather channel or something, and it said it was snowing, then it'd snow everywhere in game (don't know how feasible this is too be honest). Another similar thing to this is the inclusion of holidays. Since the game and 3DS are region locked/if you could input events into a calendar, I could see this happening. It could be a simple feature, with the NPCs of the game just partying and talking about whatever event was going on that day.

So, what do you think of the two ideas above? Would you want them to be implemented? Do you have any similar ideas of your own you think could/would be implemented into the games?

OMG that would be so amazing with the weather O.0. That is so cool I haope that that happens. As for the inclusion of holidays as cool as that would be I doubt it happens due to that fact there could be controversy over it because certain holidays might offend people, like Christmas. But I would be cool with it happening

A feature i think would be cool if for your family to throw you a birthday party each year. You could receive very useful items as gifts from gym leaders and friends.

    Back when weather was the new thing in Gen 3, little kid me was hoping there'd be some way for it to match the weather outside. I'd be soooooo happy if it became a reality here!

    But really, what climate thing hasn't been done yet? I think that maybe in that respect, the environments are as real as they're going to get.

      I think weather would be amazing. I think it would look something like this:

      That'd be a great feature @ weather. I wouldn't use that though. Alabama weather is...stupid. XD I wouldn't be able to deal with going from sun to snow in real life AND my game, haha.

        Where I live we basically go through that cycle once a day without the snow XD It's pretty crazy but maybe it would be cool if they did it right. They have overworld weather in past games, why not these! Though I do hope there's a snowy area, there's only really been mountaintops and I'd like to see something different.

          I think weather data for your zip code should be downloaded via spotpass.

          I would love a random weather pattern. I actually talked to Erica (Lightning) about it long ago. It'd be cool if you could like check the forecast on the in-game TVs.

            I think it'd be cool to have all the weather features. I'd get a good mix because were I live it might be really hot one day then stormy the next. Although that could get annoying If you lived in a place that rained/snowed all the time.

            It would be awesome if they celebrated your birthday! That would be awesome. How awesome would it be if you could see a fireworks display on New Years Eve? That would be amazing!

              It would be nice to have dynamic weather that could occur erratically and not just in pre determined spots.

              I'd rather not have it based on where we live. Maybe in general... the overall weather your state is having in general, so really sunny if it's over certain degrees or something, but nothing too crazy, tho I'd never get a snowy area ;__;

              Love the random weather idea, and also checking on the in-game tv for the forecast.

              My weather would be depressing; rain, rain, rain, clouds, rain. XD

              It would be a nice feature, but I feel it would be a little redundant to some people, who wouldn't be able to see different seasons. I think, if they are going to have the seasons, they should just keep them to game seasons. Maybe keeping it to real life seasons, but nothing real time, in the sense of what is happened exactly there and then.

                That would be a great feature! I could see them implementing some sort of Disaster system i.e Earthquakes, Volcanoes but I don't really know how it would have an impact on the game play.

                    ^ Nah I'd rather that didn't happen, this is a kiddies game after all. I'd love to see NYE fireworks, that'd be amazing.

                    Oh I like the idea of fireworks based on the event. Considering what the region looks like I think it might be kind of likely to happen (or at least from the graphics it seems like fireworks could easily be implemented).

                      Random Weather systems? Already have a thought of that. Every hour, There is a +50% for the weather of a city or route to be clear, while the other percentages is shared with other weather systemsand the possibilities of the weather changes depending on season and the time of day whether it is day or night. Imagine it like this. It is spring and a route has a possibility to rain of 40% while 60% has a possibility of clear weather. During summer, the same route will have an additional weather system harsh sun and has a possibilty to occur of 10% during the day. There is also 20% chance to rain (30% during the night) and 70% chance of clear weather.

                      This idea is great. It will make desert routes not only have sandstorms, but also harsh sun since a desert is known to have very hot temperature during the day.

Imagine it like this. It is spring and a route has a possibility to rain of 40% while 60% has a possibility of clear weather. During summer, the same route will have an additional weather system harsh sun and has a possibilty to occur of 10% during the day. There is also 20% chance to rain (30% during the night) and 70% chance of clear weather.

                      This idea is great. It will make desert routes not only have sandstorms, but also harsh sun since a desert is known to have very hot temperature during the day.
                      Still on the last point, what kind of Pokemon could appear? You wouldn't really find Chlorophyll mons in the desert considering they're p much all grass. :x

                      It would be great if there was a random weather effects set for any place. But I'm not sure if it will, since Generation V did have different weather effects already set for towns, but it was either mainly clear, rain or snow (if winter).

                        If Christmas is offensive, change it to Arceusmas. XD

                        I think weather would be cool but I think it'd be kinda unfair if it's connected to real life because what if you live in a place that never gets snow but you can only get certain Pokemon in snow... That kind of thing. I just think it's best to keep it to in-game. Maybe certain cities or routes can have certain weather on certain days or months.
