@Enigminator kangaskhan will never have an evolution because it has a mega evolution!

The number doesn't matter to me as much as the quality. Introducing new Pokemon that fit within the universe without simply outclassing ones we already have(power creep). I would also like to see more regional variants and of Pokemon from across the generations. I really really like that idea from a lore standpoint.

I would also like to see Pokemon of new, or very rare type combinations. Something like an ice/fighting or a water/steel type.

For me, quality over quantity is always the preference.

Though honestly, I wouldn't mind if we had NO new Pokemon, but instead an original mix of Pokemon from different eras. Perhaps just some regional variants instead. Actually, I would find the idea of an entire region focused on regional variants to be interesting as well.

@crimsontadpoles An official game is extremely unlikely. But there are good rom hacks that do that. Pokemon Storm Silver is a hack of Soul Silver with a nicely increased level of challenge and every Pokemon obtainable in game up through 4th gen. There is also some added content as well. There are similar versions of BW and BW2 from the same guy.

@Haru17 If they remade Kanto in 3D, it would need to be reimagined without the perfect right angles, something I'm sure GameFreak is capable of doing. Now, I'm not sure that I'd WANT them to do that, but I doubt it would be a straight remake of existing maps.

I mean, this was Fire Red.

Well we all know Pokemon's never getting real towns. Chrissakes, the freakin' golden gate bridge in Unova lead into a forest. I'm just saying that, with how 'faithful' Game Freak usually is with remasters, I doubt Kanto is somewhere we'd really want to go when all was said and done. Probably gonna use the old level design even.

Maybe... the old games still exist, and if they do a proper remake, then I don't mind them going all out. Johto and Hoenn look great in their official artwork too. It's just a shame you don't ever see the region like this...

That looks like a cool game, just not something achievable on a Pokemon development cycle.

And this is the problem, Game Freak wants to cheap out and stick with small studios in a 1-3 year dev cycle. You really can't accomplish much under those constraints in this day and age. They're probably going to learn the hard way that it takes much more work to make a quality game on an HD console, but until then we're probably not going to get anything impressive out of them.

Unless the next game is gutter tier garbo, I'm guessing it'll be an average Pokemon game and many people will love and praise it regardless. So I doubt they'll learn any "lesson the hard way". Like as much as people around here dislike SM, it's not my favorite either, I know many people who consider it the best in the series despite its numerous flaws. Obviously this is all based on my lone observations and is probably a bit exaggerative, but this is my guess.

Edit: I think I'm expecting an XY sort of thing, tbh

I wonder if the "2018 or later" release date for Pokemon Switch only exists to try and tempt people to buy Switch early with there actually being no intention of releasing in 2018. I mean surely Game Freak would suffer the same problems Nintendo did in the Wii U era.

@-Green- You do know that every single game ever released has flaws right? You say "an XY sort of thing" like it's a bad thing. (Y's my personal favorite in the series)

@Snaplocket Of course! I wasn't meaning to imply otherwise.

70ish new Pokemon with 20ish regional variants.

@Arcamenel This is GameFreak, they're going to abandon the concept of regional variants.

It feels like the only reason they were in Alola was because of gen 1 pandering due to Pokemon GO and the gen 1 releases on 3DS...

Arcamenel

@Octane Yes you are probably right but I can dream.

I had no problem with the regional variants for the most part, pandering or not. It's also not a new concept since we did get regional variants of Shellos/Gastrodon back in Gen IV. These rely on the very real phenomenon of adaptation, though total type changes in some of those cases may be stretching it a bit (But lol, realism in a Pokemon game? )

I honestly would like to see more variants at some point. Knowing GF's record, this may not happen, but...maybe if the fans scream for it hard enough?
