I’m all for better tracking and NPCs!

My top 6 list

In game tracker including raids
Gen 3
Raid boss rotation

Improved appraisals (give me all the dang numbers)

  1. New teams? how wold that work?
  2. Interesting
  3. What do you mean by that, you encounter them
  4. Fully agreed, not to mention they are easy to do
  5. This could be a bit more difficult (at least the weather)
  6. interesting I guess
  7. a bit too much for now
  8. you can already do that with the video recording gadget on iPhones and with other apps on just about anything
  9. how would that be useful?
  10. who even plays background music in PoGo?
  11. Speed is already implemented
  12. Would be kinda pointless atm
  13. agreed, but only from events
  14. I dont think it would be necessary, it would just take too much EXP (last jump is 5 million, second last is 3, thats a huge difference, so for level 41 you would need like 7,5 million EXP)
  15. How would that work?
  16. would be cool
  17. leaders?
  18. arent these practically teams?
  19. what do you mean?
  20. accuracy doesnt exist,otherwise cool
  21. marvelous
  22. I need this one so much
  23. yes, a working one
  24. meh
  25. you mean like rare spawns at the VGC?
  26. but you already do get daily bonus
  27. 1v1 should be the priority
  28. That would be painful, having to wait a whole year for a mon
  29. which soundtracks? yet again you dont play the music in the public
  30. great

#11

It’s a compressed form of my ideas. If you want to know how they work, you may read the topics, articles, polls I’ve created or my replies/comments on other topics.

Which ideas would you like me to further explain? You could list them out.


#12

Maybe I can sum up your view on my ideas.

  1. ?
  2. ?

  13. Note: ’ - ’ means 50-50.

#13

Thanks
I think new teams would be kinda cool (like teams after the beasts, or weather trio, or even the regis)


#14

Oh ‘new teams’ actually means additional trainer teams like team Valor, team Instinct and team Mystic, not legendary Pokemon families.

Is it better for me to explain the ideas commented as ‘?’ and some more ideas which has misled you?


#15

I know (unless you mean adding new teams and not changing them)
I would be glad, thanks!


#16

(3) ‘Encounter’ means battle in my point
(5) Castform is a great example of weather forecast system
(7) Just for fun + more or less the same as dressing your representative trainer
(8) How about Android system?
(9) Increase happiness + boost buddy walking speed
(10) Music from main Pokemon series of game (e.g. Halloween event music)
(11) Not really. Deoxy is an symbol of Pokemon stats.
(12) Let’s see how will Niantic deal with it.
(14) Maybe the requirement of exp is fixed beyond lev 40.
(15) Just consider it as tournament for the first look.
(17) I’ll talk about it later.
(18) Nope. Guilds are built up by locals.
(19) Virtual, daily PvP stages which help to gain exp, candies etc.
(20) It’s just an expectation
(24) It’s a Chinese festival which also celebrated by Japanese
(25) Likely
(26) Just excluding it
(27) The more players being involved, the higher cooperative level
(28) Umm it’s only a bit adjustment on Pokemon spawns
(29) Relax and enjoy music


#17

What I want to see in Pokémon Go is.

Weather based gameplay ( I know Niantic probably is planning this in the future). Based on weather Pokémon with different types are stronger or weaker. As well it will affect what kind of Pokémon you encounter out in the wild.

I would like to see a option that Pokémon can get stronger by fighting in gym as well as putting them there for defending. So if I have a level 22 Arbok I can level it up by putting it in to defend gym as well as using it for attacking. Probably won’t be implemented but at least you can wish for it.

And of course it would be nice with some kind of social function so you can interact with other trainers.

3.PoGo is mainly a casual game, I agree that it would be cool to battle and weaken some mons, but it would get boring if you would have to do it with every Pidgey
5. The problem is that they would have to use another source to determine where it rains, hails or where is it sunny
A solution would be to simply make it rng based
7.I would like that as well
8. there are apps for that as well
9. you would need held items for that, altho it could work like Lucky egg, for 30 minutes
10. That would be kinda cool, but again, its kinda pointless in a game based around walking outside
11. it is implemented and affects both attack and defense
12. that will take a long time (again, the battle system is supposed to be simple, and you already have charge moves)
14. that could work
15. but the E4 and Champion would just keep changing, thats the reason Pokémon League only exists in singleplayer in the main games
17. oke
18. well, that wouldnt change much as you have groups right now as well based on the location
19. would be good
24. but we already have the equinox, halloween, and presumably thanksgiving
26. why have two daily bonuses? (well, you already kinda have two)
27. probably wouldnt get much use (besides, it would be hard to make you battle two at once)
28. oke
29. but for that, you already have just about any music track availible


#19

Umm could you specify the points’ number (Which points are you referring to)?


#20

Weird, I thought I did that, will fix


#21

Thanks. So you’ve shown agreement on point (7, 9, 14, 19, 25) as well. That’s great.
Or maybe I can clear things up. The list is based on my wants and I know some of them will never come true.

(3) I understand your viewpoint, but in fact Niantic may release new gens in a slow motion (probably 1 gen/year) and focus on developing cooperative system.
(5) Haha this is a must-face issue if Niantic attach importance to forms of Pokemon. Only weather forecast system can retain the meaning of Pokemon like Castform
(8) :ok_hand:
(9) Great suggestion
(10) How about downloading the music from Pokemon GO?
(11) This is waited to be confirmed
(12) Maybe Niantic will find out the solution when they release gen 7.
(15) I’ll further explain it.
(18) Formed by players with closer relationship (e.g. relatives, friends, siblings…) and a upper limit of members is set. Unlike teams, they exhibit the benefits in tournaments, events. In additional, ‘guild level’ will be implemented. I’ll further explain it.
(24) Equinox event is not well organised. I think Mid-Autumn Festival may take over it in 2018 and to spread the Chinese culture.
(26) Ignore it.
(27) It’s a variant of PvP’s form.


#22

3.It would still be a bother to fight and weaken every mon you want to catch
5. Or they can make the weather occur at random
10. I dont think its wise to put a music in there just so you can download it and not use it in the game, the current 5 themes work just fine
11. No, the equations that determine base Attack and Defense both use the pokémon’s base speed stat from the main games
18. sounds neat
