    Here's an idea not too dissimilar to the Eevee concept-a Kung fu Pokemon that starts as fighting, and evolves into one of the five animal styles. Not sure what types, but evolution is dependent on what stat their nature boosts. Another idea is a three-stage monkey Buddha that's also based on "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil." It'll be Psychic with an ability making it immune to Dark type attacks, since Dark is considered the "evil" type

    Aviklaus, the Gift Pokemon
    Type-Ice/Flying
    Evolves from-Delibird when traded holding an item
    Ability-Same as Delibird
    Name origin-Aviary and Claus, but Claus with a K
    Stats-Overall superior to Delibird, Aviklaus has its best stats in physical attack and HP. While not too defensive, it's high speed makes up for it.
    Moves-Delibird is a healer for your team. It knows physical Ice moves like Ice Punch. Curiously, it knows Extremespeed
    Basis-Aviklaus is a bigger, fatter Delibird with a sterner look, big beard, ice skates and reindeer-esque antlers. It's speed comes from the fact that Santa is fast and can travel across the world in one night

    When Zoroark was announced on the Japanese sight, I was banking on it being named Zoloark when it hit English.

    I still think Zoloark sounds much cooler, and rolls off the tongue better.

    New Hoenn Pokedex-There are 300 Pokemon in this dex, containing both new evos/prevos and Pokemon not there before. There's another case of a zeroth Pokemon(though not what you'd expect) and the other Hoenn event legendaries being 301 and 302

    Hoenn trainers
    Winoa has a shiny Swellow as a nice cameo, and introduction to shinies

    Hoenn Elite 4 Member Sidney-Absol evo(Dark/Fighting), Crawdaunt, Shiftry, Cacturne and Challenge Mode Zangoose
    Hoenn Elite 4 Member Phoebe-Dusclops(rematch/Challenge mode has it evolve), Banette, Chimecho evo(Psychic/Ghost), Sabelye evo(Dark/Ghost) and Challenge Mode Shedinja
    Hoenn Elite 4 Member Glacia-Walrein, Glalie, Froslass, Glaceon and Challenge Mode Weavile
    Hoenn Elite 4 Member Drake-Salamence, Flygon, Altaria, Shelgon and Challenge Mode Kingdra.
    Hoenn Champion Steven Stone-When teaming up with you to fight the baddies, he has Metang, Armaldo, Cradily and Solrock/Lunatone(depends on the version). When he is a Champion, he has Metagross, Aggron, Cradily, Armaldo, Skarmory and Claydol. If you get the event that accesses Deoxys, you shall be introduced by him and his father Mr Stone

    Factory Head Noland-In a nice reference to the anime, Noland will be friends with an Articuno. It will be his friend, and in the Gold Battle it's the only Pokemon you can be assured to fight it. Its got the Hidden Ability of Snow Cloak
    Arena Tycoon Greta-In the after-game, you first find Greta trying to get Brawly back into being a Fighting-type gym leader, and possibly take his place. Brawly will request you fight her-these two Pokemon are Medicham and Hariyama, each with their Hidden abilties.
    Dome Ace Tucker-The ever-so fabulous Tucker is seen in the after-game in the main Pokemon contest. He is using an Arcanine. According to him, it has the ability Justified.
    Pike Queen Lucy-Haughtily, Lucy will challenge you in a regular battle right when you enter the Battle Frontier. She will use squinty-eyed Pokemon in this battle with their Hidden abilities-Telepathy Wobbufett and Gluttony Snorlax
    Spenser-Appearing after the villainous attacks to help the hurt people and Pokemon, he will recognise your kindness and give you a special item. A Venusaur NPC will follow him. This special item will allow you to visit Spenser's Sanctuary-a home of rare Pokemon found nowhere else in Hoenn. It has a Lv 60 Venusaur as a boss, with Chlorophyll. It was released by Spenser
    Anabel-Anabel is found in the old Battle Tower, where an abandoned Lv 60 Metagross with Light Metal. It was released by Anabel
    Pyramid King Brandon-In order to unlock the Regis, you must fight Brandon in the Sealed Chamber. While you can rematch the Regis, if you lose against Brandon here you can't catch the Regis, so save before you do. He will have four Pokemon: Solrock, Dusclops, Ninjask and one of the two Pokemon depending on the version. Pokemon Sapphire will have Sturdy Relicanth, and Pokemon Ruby has Pressure Wailord. After beating Brandon, there's a unique Lv 70 shiny Wailord/shiny Relicanth found in the Battle Fronteir waters

    Wally-Gardevoir, Gallade, Roserade, Flygon, Magnezone
    Your other rival(May/Brendan)-The starter you're weak to, Beautifly, Magcargo/Pelipper/Tropius(depends on the starter), Glaceon, Mighteyna and Altaria. In the after-game, she shall trade you a recently hatched version of your starter for her Lv 1 Squirtle with its Hidden Ability Rain Dish

    Pokemon World Tournament-new members
    Professor Oak-Charizard, Tauros, Exeggutor, Gyarados, Pidgeot, Dragonite. Charizard, Pidgeot and Dragonite are all references to his anime Pokemon
    Professor Elm-Togekiss, Electivire, Magmortar, Jynx evo, Wigglytuff and Clefable. All of these Pokemon are evolutions of what may be from the Odd Egg in the original GS game, with the exception of Pichu(Togepi instead). This links to his research in Pokemon Eggs
    Professor Birch-Blaziken, Linoone, Beautifly, Dustox, Mighteyna and Pelipper. These Pokemon are the closest to Litteroot Town, and thus easy for Birch to collect
    Professor Rowan-Staraptor, Gliscor, Probopass, Lickilicky, Tangrowth, Yanmega. All but Staraptor are Pokemon that, prior to Gen 4, did not evolve, referencing his study of evolution
    Professor Juniper-Cicinnco, Acclegor, Watchog, Klinklang, Musharna, the starter not chosen

    Player Character Ethan-Typhlosion, Beedrill, Donphan, shiny Gyarados, Politoed, Sudowoodo
    Kris/Lyra/Kotone/Whatever-Meganium, Azumarill, Raticate, Misdreavus, Hitmonchan, Xatu
    Player Character Brendan-Swampert, Aggron, Shiftry, Rhyperior, Castform, Milotic
    Ethan-Infernape, Clefable, Alakazam, Bastiodon, Lickitung, Rotom
    Player Character Dawn-Empoleon, Lopunny, Togekiss, Mamoswine, Pachirizu, Drifblim

    Special Pokemon to get in Magma Ruby/Ocean Sapphire
    Mirage Island-A mysterious island that's almost as hard to get as before, but its thankfully easier. It is renewed every hour, and the chances of finding it randomly are one in 8192(the same as a shiny). A random number generater goes from zero to 8191. Every hour, you may call the guy in Pacifidlog Town. He will let you enter a number, and tell you if you're lucky. Similar to the lottery, you get consolation prizes-the better the estimate, the better the berry. Chances can increase: if you have a Pokemon of a nature pertaining to defense or special defense, the number generator is halved. If its a Calm nature, its quatered. Its also quatered if you already have a Liechi berry. Beating the Elite 4 results in halving, and filling the Hoenn Pokedex(minus Pokemon #000 and Pokemon #301-302) quaters it even further. Should you have all these, you can have a maximum of 1/64. On the Island there are Wynauts from Lv 5 to Lv 50, with a special shiny Wobbufett guarding the Liechi Berry at Lv 60. Beat/catch and get the Liechi berry, and Pokemon #000 is released. The Mirage Radar(with the old guy talking to you) is used to note the chances, Mirage Island appearing or not, fun trivia asked about rare Pokemon only found in one area(though you have to visit), and finally to locate the mysterious Pokemon #000.

    Hidden Ability gifts-Certain trainers, after you beat them, will give you a Lv 5 first-stage of said trainers' main Pokemon. They are:
    Roxanne's Sand Force Nosepass, Brawly's Sheer Force Makuhita, Wattson's Minus Electrike, Flannery's Shell Armor Torkoal, Norman's Quick Feet Zigzagoon, Winona's Cloud Nine Swablu, Tate and Liza's Magic Bounce Natu, Wallace's Adaptability Feebas, Sidney's Justified Absol, Phoebe's Prankster Sableye, Glacia's Oblivios Spheal, Drake's Sheer Force Bagon, Steven's Weak Armor Skarmory

    Special starters-As mentioned, you can actually catch the three starters of Kanto. After beating the Elite 4, sightings report a mysterious Charmeleon wandering the area. It is Lv 50, catchable(WTF), and with Solar Power. Venusaur and Squirtle have already been mentioned. Once completing the Hoenn Pokedex(with the exception of event legendaries). Depending on the version, you can either pick one of the Johto starters or one of the Sinnoh starters(they do not have their Hidden Ability), given by Professor Birch.

    Legendary encounters(main game)-Groudon and Kyogre are found in their respective versions(Lv 45), but to get Rayquaza(Lv 75) you must have both versions. Both are located in the Cave of Origins, filled with either sapphires(Groudon) or rubies(Kyogre) The Sky Tower can be visited prior to the Elite 4, but the Pokemon are still in the level 50s to 60s, so its not advised
    With the Regis(Lv 40), I've already described that it involves meeting Brandon. While you must beat him to get the Regis, they will come back after being beaten after a day. Brandon will also help you find their leader Regigigas when you have the three, but its filled with Fighting types and almost as strong as the Sky Tower, with a Lv 70 Regigigas. The Regi chambers, while only having the legendary as the Pokemon, are quite more artistic. Registeel's lair has metal slabs for the walls and a machine sigil where it slumbers. Regirock's lair is an orante cave with stalactites around and stalagmites were Regirock is embedded. Regice's lair is a slippery, frozen region with a glacier containing Regice. All three are buried, and require a ritual to wake up. Regigigas is found in the basement of Sealed Chamber, which you need the Regis to access
    With Latias/Latios, they're actually accessed when beating the last gym leader. At Lv 40, it is a roamer. The other is the same South Island event
    Then there's mysterious Pokemon number 0. Uniquely, its not only a Pokemon that isn't normally Hoenn, but a Pokemon that you didn't think to find without an event-Mew. 'Course, so much effort to get to Mirage Island makes it worth it. Mew likes to go around the region, though it won't run away from you. The Mirage Radar tells you where to find Pokemon 0, but doesn't tell you what it is. You go into the grass, water or cave, trying to find what it is, and BOOM suprise Mew! When you capture Mew, you get another surprise-the region where Mew was captured will now a wandering Eccentric Ditto there once a day

    Legendary encounters(after-game)-If you have Pokemon Magma Ruby, you can try and get the bird trio, and in Pokemon you can try and get the beast trio. Mercifully, they don't roam. You only get Articuno/Raikou at first though. To get Zapdos/Entei requires capturing the previous, and to get Moltres/Suicune you must share keys with the alternate version. All are Lv 60. Articuno is located in the Shoal Cave, Raikou is located in New Mauville, Zapdos and Entei are roamers, Moltres is located at Mt Chimney and Suicune is located in Sootopolis
    Lugia and Ho-oh-When the trios are obtained, trade them to other version. Both are Lv 70, and require the trio they master. In Sapphire, the bird trio will unlock Lugia in a deep underwater tornado system, and Ho-oh on a ruined tower

    I'd give at least dream world abilities to my favorite evolution of pokemon

    New abilities via DW

    ~Slakoth-Klutz
    -User cannot hold any items

    ~Vigorath-Huge Power
    Increases power, lowers accuracy

    ~Slaking-Defiant
    Raises Attack when another stat is lowered

    Slaking is one of my Favorite pokemon and I can't even use him for online battling because of Traunt D: Honestly I'd be happy with anything as a new ability so long as it wasn't slow start or traunt...

    Slakoth - Although your description of Klutz is incorrect, the ability seems fine on it, if not slightly underpowered.

    Vigoroth - The ability you're looking for is Hustle. If you really do mean Huge Power, though, I guess that'd be alright, too.

    Slaking - Truant is on Slaking for a very good reason, and that's to keep it from becoming too powerful. One of the ways to deal with an un-Truanted Slaking would be to lower its other stats to cripple its bulk. For Slaking to have an Attack increase after its Defense is sharply lowered is much too good for its foe. I can see where you're coming from with the idea, though.

    Create:
    Ability - Chamber Guard: Increases Defense stat, until wielder unleashes a damaging attack. Thus, status moves do not affect the ability.
    Example Pokémon: Cofagrigus, Cloyster

    Move - Bouy Mine
    Water-type equivalent to similar moves such Spikes or Stealth Rock.
    Floating debris is cast out, detonating on impact. Damages an opponent once switched in.


    Change:
    Lick - capable of hitting Normal-type Pokémon for neutral damage.
    Bonemerang- capable of hitting Flying-type Pokémon for neutral damage.
    Black-2 FC: 1034 - 9555 - 8683
    White FC: 5243 - 6137 - 1070

    I'd just change Game Freak's formula for starters so that they're actually good for OU or Ubers gameplay with the standard Blaze/Torrent/Overgrow abilities. Or, if they don't feel like making awesome move pools and base stats for the starter pokemon, they could always start you off with better abilities.

    Total: 575 W/285 L

    Default And if SOME gyms were based on themes instead types?

    Not type, but themes. Then you could have a challenging match as you wouldn't be able to pick up a type that is in advantage to his/her whole team to sweep it easily.

    For example, Leader Doug (from "dog") uses Pokemon based on animals from Canidae familly. Then, this team could be this:

    Arcanine
    Lucario
    Granbull

    Another example. Leader Sarah (from "Saara Desert") uses Pokemon that are found in desert areas:

    Cacturne
    Sandslash
    Vibrava
    Yamask

    And applying a theme that isn't based on type would still be a standard, similar to gym leaders' team that always keep the same type as theme. Post your opinion about this suggestion.

    That's actually not a bad idea, but it's highly unlikely to happen. It'd be good for a fanfic though. Or a ROM. I'd love a lizard-themed gym with leader Lizzie, featuring a Sceptile as her signature pokemon.

    It might be interesting as part of a post-game content, such as the Medal system or a rule in one of the Battle Frontier facility. But as a gym I would say it's unlikely unless there's a large variety of Pokemon to keep the typing consistent across the entire team. I don't think being handed out a Canine Badge makes much sense compared to a type related badge.

    theme related then i think more about halloween and other holliday related things. then type still can matter like for halloween the leader can use ghost types and so on

    Interesting idea. But I think it'd make a better internet sensation than game theme, mainly because fans would get mad if you change the formula after 17 years.

    It's not a change. As it's said in CAPs in the title of the thread, just some gyms would be based on theme instead on type.

    I agree. The PKMN they specialized with could be their theme in a post-game rematch.


    In Black 2, for example, Marlon could have a Jellyfish team. Jellicent, Tentacruel, Octorok (sorta...)

    EDIT:

    Fans aren't mad that the style is now 3D and is on the 3DS though it wasn't for a while. They aren't mad that there are no more sprites (or so it seems). Why would they be angry about this?

    It would be cooler if they were based on strategies. Things like evasion, protect stalling, stat boosts, double/triple battles, ect. This would promote people thinking outside the box to beat them (getting moves that never miss, feint, follow me, ect). Elite four could be the four different weather effects.

    I think this would be a really fun idea.
    Or maybe color based, but they try to have a balanced team in that color?
    So you fight the red gym and it has all pokemon with the color red on them, and so on.
    Which would be more like the Halloween idea said above, just different category.
    Having it after you beat the E4 would be nice.

    I 100% agree! I have been a pokemon fan through thick and thin, and i would be OUTRAGED if they changed the classic pokemon formula!!!

    I don't mind the idea, and it's never really been all type after all (Blaine's Rhydon, anyone?). I never played Emerald (was happy with Sapphire) so I missed out on the whole Battle Frontier thing, but from what I understand of it it might be a better fit than pre-league Gyms.

    I've often thought that there should be more than 8 Gyms in a region, you just need any 8 badges to qualify (the way it apparently works in the anime). You could keep the 8 type-based Gyms as tradition and add some of these theme Gyms in the formerly empty cities. By making them optional the conservatives will have less to complain about.

    It's not a bad idea, but I feel that if this happened, it wouldn't be the same as the Pokemon we have now. Gym's have been dedicated to types since the very first gym 16 years ago.
    Within my lifetime, I've done a lot of walking. I started my journey walking on a little path called Route 1. Little did I know that walking down that route would lead me onwards to a road that went by the name of Victory. Just west of Victory Road, I walked up an entire mountain where atop stood a silent trainer who was one of the mightiest I had ever faced. I've walked, through sandstorms, across the hard desert of Hoenn. I've walked through pelting hail, across the snow covered terrains of Sinnoh. And now as I look back on all my travels I find myself walking across the Skyarrow Bridge of Unova. It took a lot of walking through tall grass patches to get where I am today...But it was worth the walk.

    I think a good compromise would be if the themes they picked were tied to specific elements, like environmental themes. For instance, you could have a factory theme that uses Fire, Electric, Poison, and Steel types. That way, you'd get the same variety, but some sense of predictability.

    I'd like to see this too, but I think that would be unlikely.
