I for one completely forgot it existed half of the time.
[QUOTE=Bolt the Cat;15764903]They don't have to, it would be just like Ranger. Once you get up in the skies, you can instantly fly to a city.
If you mean something like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MTP2ZUNTd-s
The wild encounters could definitely be annoying if you just want to get on with the story. Perhaps the best way is to provide best of both worlds.
And if it's a town you've already visited, that wouldn't be a problem, since you literally wouldn't have to move an inch once you reach the sky, once you get up there you can pick a city and go straight there as usual. Guardian Signs does the same thing, if you notice.
I might be the only one who disliked following pokemon. It didnt look right when they would just walk in place when your character is standing still

and they already did for the pokedex...and what do you mean it would waste valuable time to make improvements to the game?
there are plenty of unnecessary things in game that they don't have to "waste" their time on
they don't have to put in contests
they don't have to do pokeathalons
but they do so to make the game more appealing and fun
and if that is your mind set then why are you posting on this thread?
this thread is about gameplay mechanics that we think would make the game better
if you think it is all a waste of time then i think you're wasting your time posting here
i think this may or may not have been spoken about before but i wouldnt mind seeing them bring back the walking pokemon feature with maybe a little more control over how it works such being able to manually select which character you want to follow you around without having to put it in the first place in your team and maybe the option to have about 3 pokemon out at once if at all possible.
If you believe in Jesus Christ put this in your profile and don't just ignore this, because in the Bible it says,
If you deny me, I will deny you in front of my Father at the gates of Heaven.

3DS FRIEND CODE: 4382-2152-1254 friend safari type: poison pokemon ariados, kakuna, and muk. please don't take too long too add me it drives me crazy and I will delete your friend code
1. The over world sprites in X and Y are way different then the battle scenes, which means they would have to make and code in 700 + models just for following Pokemon. If they didn't put following models in B/W where we still used sprites they it wouldn't make sense to do it for X and Y
2. If you actually read my post carefully making and programming 700 + models for one silly little feature that lets face it is just something you could call an aesthetic extra when those resources could be used for something that adds replay ability.
3. The difference between contests and pokeathons is that they ad replay ability to the game so there something worth putting in.
4. Once again this thread is about game play ideas but that does not mean I'm not allowed to state my opinion on the game play idea and why it won't comeback. Hence the speculation part of the topic title.
And you can't really compare making a whole mini-game place/contests which is supposed to bring diversity to the game with making 700+ extra 3D models just so you can have them run around behind you. So I say, if they were to bring it back, it would only be because they had to make the models anyway because of some mini-game or whatever.
granted the graphics weren't as good but they were limited by technology and it was still a difficult task
and to be a great game maker you have to challenge yourself
i think they could pull it off more than easy enough
Having Pokemon follow you was a nice idea and all but I would much rather they focused on something new that would make the game more enjoyable. Customizable characters for example. I think the male character looks bland and too similar to Hilbert, so introducing that this generation would be perfect.
All hail Scizor.
Pokemon following you was a nice one time novelty. It could return in the future, but if it doesn't, I won't lose any sleep.
You know your name better than I do. YAY!
