They could also have some prairie enviroments (out west, like in real life), plus a decent amount of maritime-centric locations. Maybe a big lake or two, if they wanted to reference the Great Lakes, and a big city that's the equivalent of Toronto or something.

Keep your Xenoblades in your pants, if this Pokemon game was going to be any different the developers would need time that they don't have since announcing it. And they would also probably give some indication that generations 8 wasn't going to be the same thing like all of the past generations... which they haven't given.

If you want to gobble down open world games like Gulpin, I hear Playstations still exist. But I don't exactly see the Killzone dev handing out the Decima engine so Game Freak can turn around a new open world game in three years.

Don't hate me because I'm bnahabulous.

Yeah, at this point, this topic is radioactive. Everyone and their mom, cousin and step uncle has an opinion on what they think the game should be. No one will ever agree.

what about the southeast US It would be divided into 3 sub regions
Coastal(north area where inland is the mountains where the ice types will be in)
Florida(where we can have some aloha pokemon and more tropical area and PIkaworld)
Gulf Lowlands and pains(texas area east)
Professer magonial a female one that gives you your first pokemon
a pokemon based on the palmetto tree a small one is on the dwarf palmetto and the main one is on sable palmetto
and then a pokemon on spanish moss and palmetto bug and mocking bird and the region will have platiotion homes with ghost types.

I just really don't want to see anything even remotely tropical right after Alola. I know that my dream of a Scandinavian region is just that - a dream - but I really hope that they, at the very least, don't give us anything similar to Alola for this next generation.

I would like a region based on Nordic countries (Iceland, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark) as well. Might also have something to do with the fact that I'm from Finland. I fully expect them to do it sooner or later. Japanese like to give attention to Nordic countries for some reason, at least in manga/anime series. Steins; Gate: 0 has a guy named Leskinen (Finnish surname) and Little Witch Academia had an entire episode dedicated to a town which was heavily inspired by Finland and Sweden.

There's more than enough variation in the landscapes as well. There are mountains, volcanos, lakes, forests, swamps, etc. Maybe they could bring back the seasons from Black & White as well?

The towns could be a bit smaller which I'd appreciate. I don't like exploring bigger cities in Pokémon. I don't want another Castelia or Lumiose City unless they can find a way to make them more engaging. Actually, I don't like bigger cities in general in RPGs but I really enjoyed running around the same cities in Xenoblade Chronicles 2 for hours. Maybe they can take some notes from that game. Make the NPCs do more than just say the same thing every time you talk to them.

I programmed a simple tool that copies all Switch screenshots from an SD card and places them to folders according to the game:

If they can't make an open world game that's fine, it'd be a bit unreasonable to expect them to make that big a leap in one game. But it should be at least like, OoT/TP tier. XY/SM HD isn't going to satisfy the console market, and LGPE most certainly isn't regardless of what Game Freak thinks, they need to go bigger.

@Harmonie you know the southeast has mountains like the blue ridge and smokey mountains they be nice for more ice types and stuff like that due to they more temperate but it subtropical at the coast also the key deer could be a grass/fairy or grass/water type

@Bolt_Strike I think Gen 8 will be closer to Skyward Sword out of the 3D Zelda games.

Would be neat if you could have online beach sessions where you send your team out and then pick out a swimsuit. Then your character changes in classic Pokémon style in the anime. Be neat if there was a pose your trainer struck. Be neat if this were made into a city in alola you visited in the postgame

I was just thinking. It might be more realistic for Game Freak to go back to 2D. Counting forms(like the different Rotom forms and the genies and Giratina and mega evolutions), there are over 1000 Pokemon already. What other game has that many distinct 3D models? 2D sprites might be the way to go.

2D-HD can look pretty good. What do you guys think?

It’s undoubtedly a heck of a lot of work to create them all fully in 3D buuut if ever there is a game series nailed on to sell by the truckload then this is one of them - that alone plus the fact they’d be reusable (along with animations) going forward for a long time (inevitable upgrades aside which shouldn’t affect the pipeline too badly if built properly), I reckon it should be eminently doable for them?

That said i quite like HD-2D stuff too so guess i’m easy on the graphical front - it’s the ‘what’ I want revamping in the pokemon games more than anything - give me pokemon battles anywhere near as good/challenging as some of the boss fights in Octopath (easy recent example) & i’d be drooling!

As long as they keep out Octopath's "Yes let's not have EXP Share exist" feature out of it, I don't mind some harder battles.

I end up giving up on Octopath's last 3 Chapter 4 because the bosses gave me that this is BS rather than "Oh yeah I can defeat them". Probably just me, but hey, I play games for fun.

Back to Pokemon, hopefully it'll be more interesting than USUM/Let's GO then since I end up skipping buying those two :/

Multiple difficulty levels could fix that problem really easily i reckon? If nothing else it could toggle trainers between having say 2, 4 & 6 pokemon. Pretty sure they did that on one of the gens didn’t they? But you had to transport an item between games to do it? Or am I asleep and dreaming this?

Will quickly add, even if a trainer has six pokemon, if they’re too easy or so frequent that you have to run back to a PC every 2 minutes then that’s even worse... Maybe make it so you can choose your battles?

Black and White do have that kind of feature yeah, although I'm a little sketchy how 'easier' and 'harder' it was.

Tbh rather than difficulty levels, I can imagine that it's probably easier for them to have some sort of setting to increase your EXP gain, makes it easier to grind if you want, or you can just turn it to normal for the 'intended' experience.

Difficulties have always been a touchy subject since everyone has different threshold for it.

But I said it's a toggle :V

So if people turned it up to like, idk, 10x and said it's too easy, guess what, that means they are... well... stupid. It's like using the Assist mode in Celeste (the Infinite Air Dash for example) and say it's easy.

An experience toggle seems like the most straightforward way to adjust the game difficulty to me. The games do become fairly challenging if you're under levelled.

Trickier AI could maybe be left to the post - game? Or gym rematches?

Difficulty levels in Pokémon may as well be a meme, especially with what Gamefreak considers giving ‘good’ options.
