Ways to improve Pokemon for future titles from a gameplay perspective

2021.12.02 16:50 Phoenix7540 Ways to improve Pokemon for future titles from a gameplay perspective

For the Pokemon franchise to evolve I think it's important for the flow of the gameplay to be improved. It feels like you get stalled at every turn making it a bit of a chore to get through at times. That's why I compiled a list of general improvements that I think should be made to improve the gameplay of future titles, not just in terms of flow, but also in terms of options and information given to the player. Some of these mechanics are a bit archaic and really need to be improved.

  1. Usable stat screens, rather than getting vague hints from random NPCs, show us our exact Friendship, IVs and EVs. We'll find out the exact stats one way or another, might as well just give them upfront.
  2. Option to skip cutscenes and tutorials, self explanatory.
  3. No more battle text, the constant unnecessary battle text turns every battle into a waiting game. Remove the battle text and the gameplay will flow so much better. Things like status conditions, stage hazards and weather conditions can be shown visually. We don't need a text box to inform us about it. Same goes for type effectiveness and critical hits. Stat changes can be visualized like they are now without breaking the flow of combat. Relevant abilities can be shown below the opponents Pokemon tag. I think this might be the most important addition as combat makes for the majority of the gameplay, if the combat isn't engaging it becomes harder to enjoy the games in general. You're constantly waiting for text boxes which doesn't add substance. It just feels like the game is stalling you from actually experiencing the relevant content.
  4. Speed up encounters, Reduce the time it takes to start and end an encounter which would make traveling the world as well as hunting for specific Pokemon a far more pleasant experience.
  5. Take the dev time you normally used to spend on Spriting/3D modeling and spend it on creating and polishing the animations. You could argue it's a nearly impossible task to animate every single Pokemon, but I'd argue there are a set amount of body types where the same animations could apply to similar Pokemon with the odd exception. For example, not every bird Pokemon needs to have a unique animation, the same animation set could be applied to a range of different birds.
  6. Optional EXP Share, honestly it's a little ridiculous that this is something that needs to be addressed. Not everyone wants to be overleveled for every encounter. While Pokemon was never truly difficult I think having the optional EXP share turned off still made for more engaging encounters.
I think it's very important to have fast paced gameplay as it keeps the player engaged. Constantly being hampered by dated mechanics to me represents the complete opposite to this. I don't want the game to be over sooner, I just want there to be more content to chew on rather than spending time waiting instead of playing the game. With these efficiency improvements they can double the gyms and scale the opponents Pokemon to be lvl 80 by the time you get to the elite four and yet your playtime would probably still be the same.
Ofcourse there are also some of the cosmetic additions that I think should just be a consistent main stay in the franchise like character customization and Pokemon following you. I think in an online game it's important to be able to craft your own identity, some would just consider it shallow eye-candy, but I think cosmetics are a vital part in accomplishing this. I've really been liking the Pokeball customization in BDSP as well, hopefully that'll make a comeback in the future. What do you think of my suggestions, got any of your own? I'd love to know.

2021.12.02 16:50 austin7009 Some BH songs have surprisingly few lyrics

Somewhere Tonight:
Pink and blue were dancing Empty floor, shadows lancing Somewhere in a ballroom tonight
Red and blue combination Old man finds elation Somewhere in a ballroom tonight
Love me, see what I see tonight Let us find elation Somewhere in a ballroom tonight Nowhere on an ordinary night
Love you all the time Even though you're not mine Love you all the time Dreaming in the saltwater
Timing's gone all bad Broken thing and a broken wing You couldn't lose me if you tried 'Cause I'll be rolling to your side, baby
Love you all the time Even though you're not mine Love you all the time Broken thing and a broken wing
You couldn't lose me if you tried
Imitation, red carnation Nothing is new and neither are you It's what you say you don't do Bottom of your well, that's where you fell
Majorette, like there's nothing left If there was nothing left to lose Then you'd have something to prove
And you would never tip your hat Has it come to that? Watch it spin like that
Watch you spin like that Watch you spin like that Watch you spin like that Watch you spin like that Watch you spin like that Watch you spin like that

2021.12.02 16:50 sigurdarn Friend Referral Program Rewards

Is there a time limit for when you can earn Brett’s legacy reward through the friend referral program?
I feel it’s quite challenging as I want to work towards more referrals, but only reaching two referrals if given a short time limit removes any incentive from me to continuously refer friends, if I know it is unobtainable for me within the period. Five referrals is quite a high amount, and it takes time to convince people to buy the game.
I feel the information given by Ubisoft on this program is quite confusing.

In short, why do conservative cultures never talk about sex while at the same indirectly encouraging people to have plenty of it?

2021.12.02 16:50 AinaMielikki Dating as an mtf

Hey everyone!

I keep hearing that dating as an mtf is super hard and this is one of the things keeping me from starting my transition (that and the fear of ending up ugly af!). I don't think I could take it if I had to be forever alone...

Can anyone shed some light on that matter? Is the difficulty overblown? Or is it really not? What should my expectations be?

2021.12.02 16:50 Ayecono-mija When is the right time to seek out therapy?

As a 21 year old female, I’ve seen many people in my life go to therapy for one reason or another. Through my growing up, I’ve experienced many things like SA, uncontrollable anxiety, trauma, and overall a loss of who I am. 21 years later and , yet, I deal with these things more often than not in my head. I was always made to feel like it was just me putting it in my own head - doctors, family, friends. They always made me feel like there was nothing further to be done or any healing to be made. I have not been clinically diagnosed with anything because I never brought it up with my doctor, nor do I want to with the fear of being turned away. I am just at a loss of which direction to go to. I can’t keep a job because my anxiety gets the best of me and school is now a chore that I can’t find the motivation to stay on top of. Everything is falling apart and I really don’t know what to do. When did you decide it was time for therapy and how did you go about it?

2021.12.02 16:50 blacklabbath iPhone upgrade changed ongoing monthly charges?

Hello all, I just upgraded my wife’s iPhone. I selected the $25 a month for 36 month installment at full price with no trade in. I received a customer service summary and it shows my ongoing monthly charges went up $91 a month! That’s not including one time $30 upgrade fee. I called customer service who swore to me that the service summary was incorrect and my monthly service cost would stay the same. Does this sound right? Should I take his word for it? I don’t want to loose my grandfathered plan. Thank you.
