Pokemon in the future?
So with the release of black and white not long ago, I started wondering where Pokémon is going from here. I mean essentially since their first game the same game play and story has stayed the same... which I think sucks... So I was wondering what you people think game freak should innovate / change / implement to the game to make it more appealing than it has been since red and blue.
My idea in essence is to create a game that combines all of the regions from the past Pokémon games, Kanto, Johto, etc etc into one massive game in one. A lot of people I have seen though say this is a bad idea in that the level problems coming into a new region would make you seem overpowered and in turn make the game seem boring.
My idea to fix that state of mind is to simply up the level cap to maybe 200 or even 300 and along with raising the level cap make it so that the level of the Pokémon your fighting in the wild immediately scale their level to your lead or highest level Pokémon, say if you have a level 30 Pokémon as your lead then when you enter a new area all the Pokémon would scale to around 25 or 28. Same goes for gym leaders except they would scale up instead of down so for that same level 30 Pokémon you would have a gym leader with a level 33 or 35 only the gym leaders would only scale every 5 or so many days of play, that way players could still train their Pokémon to help them beat the gym if they’re having a hard time
Also to add something interesting each person can choose their starting region and that influences their starter Pokémon (like every other Pokémon) but when they enter a new region (after completing some goal to pass the previous region [not necessarily all 8 gyms or the elite four but some task]) they get the option to do a mission / task that is relatively hard, but allows them to start with a new starter Pokémon from that region. Keeping in mind that keeping your Pokémon of higher level in the pc will keep the level cap from scaling up; making it so you can in essence play a whole new game from the start.
This is just my idea and people are more than welcome to comment or criticize but keep it pleasant, also I would love to hear everyone else’s ideas.
