But I kinda have to agree. I don't know why they made the seasons 1 month long. The most they should have did is the following season every 2 weeks and even that is a long time for a game. Also they should let us choose what season to start in when we begin a new game.

I'm not sure about B/W, but B2/W2 were just happens to be released on a Summer month (October).
If you change the date on your DS before starting a new save file, you can start the game at Autumn, Spring, or even Winter.

An unlikely alternative i could see is them moving the day / night / seasons control away from real time to an ingame time. So say several hours of real time is a day in game. That way not only could they bring back certain species only appearing at night (and not having to wait all day to have a chance at them) but they could have seasons change after a set amount of ingame days rather then every real month.

Yo dawg, you double posted. Delete that for me, bro?
An ingame clock system would be horrible. Imagine a time when you're used to 'it's night IRL it's night IGL', and then you're like "Oh man, four hours of gameplay to get to night?" and you have to go to bed in 2 hours, busy all next the next day, etc... life is pain...
It advances in-game time to the next time period, be it morning, day, evening or night.
Of course you'd have to return to your trainer's house or find a random bed and sleep in it, but it'd be nice regardless. The day/night cycle would have to be quite long though maybe 8 hours for dawn to dawn. I play pokemon for hours at a time and it'd feel weird going through several days as a result.
An alternative would be basing the in-game clock on the system clock but being able to essentially advance the clock by sleeping(the date stays the same though. This only stays for each save and gets reset when you go back in, but it'd be more convenient than changing the in-game clock as that ruins daily events for 24 hours.
I think it'd be pretty cool if the region represented all of Europe. With Paris being the mega city of the region (i.e., Celadon, Goldenrod, Castelia... the others i can't remember.) I would love to see some German or Italian influence.
I try to use at least one Pokemon that is new to me each time I play through a game.

Going off of the time cycle subject... i hope that the region has other European influence. I know it's majorly based off france, but i'd love to see some italian or british culture mixed in. You know leaning tower of Piza, big BEn, etc.

A quote I find mildly interesting:“Oh, hi. So, how are you holding up? BECAUSE I'M A POTATO!” (Portal 2)
*Shrug* Well I guess that's what I get for not doing my research.
I'm think of a region that has France, Germany, Poland and the UK, with Southern Ireland (Republic of Ireland) in it for kicks. Maybe the capitals and other largest two cities of each country could be the towns, since the region has to be condensed, so we have London, Paris, Berlin (maybe some subtle Nazi references, I dunno), Warsaw, Dublin and (possibly) Munich and Wales. So I'm hoping for a nice big region with plenty of Post-story stuff to do considering the amount of potential cities in France alone. So that brings down the question of the gyms. When we have this much potential, I want more potential in more ingame aspects that will affect us. I want this order of gym:
3rd: Normal (if not E4, then Rock)
I know most of you will hate on the Electric gym, but imagine if we had a Lt. Surge like puzzle, and an electrician as the Gym Leader.
