Do you think they'll EVER make a full 3d pokemon RPG for the nintendo consoles? Making finding pokemon more than a randomised event, you'd have to go hunting through forest for them n stuff...I imagine something like the oblivion world which I often enjoyed hunting deer in.

Sorry, this has probably been mentioned elsewhere, I just get annoyed with them constantly turning the pokemon meat grinder instead of moving it to the next level.

I played GoD on a station in a store once hated how long each turn took.

well, the community's obviously here for it, if I were a publisher I'd see this huge niche that needs to be filled and start salivating. Maybe's its something along the lines of them seeing what happened to coloseum and interpreiting that as us not liking 3D instead of us not liking that particular direction they were taking the pokemon franchise in.

That, or they think their audience is too young to know their own arse from a half-arsed 3D Pokemon knockoff.

Ok, I call game designer (I've got four months experience! **nods**) you build me a team of decent game programmers and artists, make nintendo gimme the pokemon name to splash on it and get someone to give me vast sums of money and I'll do the rest.

Also, you may want to get a game designer.

They probably don't see a need to create a 3D Pokemon.  I mean, the 2D one sold 2 million copies in a few hours, what incentive do they have to spend more development money on the game?  It's already guaranteed to sell out.

They made two already.

They just weren't as successful.

Because they werent proper pokemon games.

They didnt follow the free-roaming catch-em-all formula.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

We are asking for the exact same game play with full Wii graphics here not just upload you poke's and have trainer battles. Throw in full random encounters in forests and caves spending the afternoon grinding up levels for the next gym leader and so on.

I'd also like to see a bit more challenge to catching pokemon in the wild. Instead of walking backwards and forward across bushes you walk into a big forest and actually have to look around for signs of pokemon. When you happen upon one it might charge you if it is thus inclined or it might run away and you've gotta hunt it down and be a bit sneaky about it or at least send your pokemon out to hunt it down.

You know, a bit more emersion than just a random event that occurs and the distributed probability of the pokemon you want appearing is X so you wont see it till you walk backwards and forwards across grass about Y times.

Sort of have it so Wild poke's spawn  around the are obviously the rarer they are that hard it is to find them in the 1st place spawning less often and being harder to actually get to.  Part of the forest where the rarer pokemon are require a bit more skill to access.
