    Pokemon sandbox game

    Who else here has fevered dreams of a full blown skyrim like sandbox game of pokemon.

    exploring mountains going through caves looking for pokemon finding rares worrying about both your pokemon and your personal health of course.

    finding the remote "gyms" and just generally exploring and looking over the horizon caring for yourself and your pokemon

    Every game needs to be like Skyrim. It's the best thing ever.

    I would love a first person game like this. It sounds like an awesome idea. I would be behind this 100%!

    Nintendo will never allow there to be a Pokemon game different from the current formula (just like they'll never change up Zelda or the likes). Pokemon will always be a portable focused game with linear gameplay, sadly.

    Damn, I was thinking about it earlier in the morning. I would probably play it if it was in earlier generations

    It changed a lot with the gamecube ones: fast travel, no random battles

    Pokemon, and maybe Adventure Time, are the only series I would like given the Elder Scrolls treatment. Only if it wasn't as shallow and painfully mediocre as Skyrim though.

    Do you even play Pokemon? Pokemon can get pretty deep, hell, people make up full on math charts on it, it is anything BUT linear when you get down to it.

    Zelda never changes, Majora's Mask, Zelda 2, and Skyward Sword disagree with you.

    Being deep has nothing to do with being linear. My point was Pokemon will usually revolve around the gym/badge ladder just like Zelda will usually revolve around collecting items from dungeons to defeat bosses with.

    Ehhhh, no thanks. Pokémon just isn't the kind of series to get such a treatment, it has many kind of side games, but this one would simply not work.

    Well, sorry to burst your bubble, but Pokémon is admittedly very linear, there's always a designated path to follow that is usually very obvious. Only big thing changing from game to game is when you get the legendary mascot of your game, but that's about it.

    The story is. And even then Gen V did some pretty serious mixing up of the forumla. The metagame is anything but. There's a huge differnce between a pokemon you trained from a carefully planned egg and raised carefully with EVs and everything compared to a wild pokemon you just caught at the same level. This is why there are officially run tournaments. If you tried takeing your pokemon you used though out normal game play to just beat the gyms you'd lose fast.

    Okay, yeah the world is fairly linear, I don't disagree.
