  1. I guess it really comes down to what you're trying to do. If you want to have the strongest and win every battle, then you're the master of that. If you want to breed the best Pokemon or have the best collection, then you're the master of that. Personally I love battling, but I love exploring and customizing my own bases and hanging out in my favorite (and most aesthetically pleasing) towns. So I'm the master of that.
  2. You could choose to either just not use the roms or just dont' go over to that region, it's entirely up to you. I'll kick back in Kanto sometimes and just walk it for nostalgia purposes when I'm feeling a change of pace from adventuring. Having the freedom to do that is pretty rad
  3. Just a simple function, as used in the show. I had an idea and thought it would be nifty to put a Pokedex icon next to the name of the opponent Poke'mon in battle. When it's clicked, it'll display/state their name, type and description. This could be done at any point during the battle without taking up your turn. You could also disable the status effectiveness (super effective, effective, etc.) overlay on the moveset unless the Pokedex has been used on that Pokemon, which it would then become available (because how can you know what it's weak against if you haven't seen it before / registered it in your Pokedex? And if you know what it's weak against then why have the status effectiveness overlay over the attacks enabled by default at all?) I think this would be useful in helping newer players learn types of Poke'mon and their effectiveness as well, and it would add a sense of engagement by manually adding Pokemon to the Pokedex. However, don't enable all the intricate details (found locations, attack list, evolution, etc) until you catch it.
  4. You kind of debunked what I was actually thinking about dreams being an alternate plane we can only access subconsciously (or with certain substances, alternatively) with the fact that you DO see other people who aren't experiencing the same dream. Unless In this other plane we can generate company, but that's a far stretch imo and a theory I'll think about. As for dream eater, that makes sense why it doesn't work on those types. However there is also an incredibly neat thought that I've been dancing around since I was a kid as to whether or not our "reality" is actually our fantasy. In which case, dream eater would be SUPER fucking mean where it just took your "reality"away and left you "dreaming" then that would just kill it on impact. Again, there are some thoughts to go into that since we actually only exist as our brains piloting a body that grows and creates other brains inside of another brains body with liquids that one brains body naturally produces (birth). Our bodies only serve as a tool to maintain the survival of our brain. Being the most important, what's to say our reality is actually just an existence to keep us alive but our brains actually "exist" when they're most active, not when our bodies are most active? And THAT'S why we can't access our dreams physically.
  5. I honestly believe a soul "our consciousness" (not to go off topic but stay on topic) can exist beyond what we experience. Where matter can't be created or destroyed, what makes up what and "Who" we are is very evident. So when we're asleep, our matter obviously isn't acting outwardly where we're on standby, so it would make sense for it to go somewhere else, and that's internally. Our body is just a tool, like a cellphone, used by a controller to communicate, act, and function to keep the planet and the human race alive through evolution and communication. Both of which we're failing at, but that's beside the point. That being said, I honestly believe it would make sense another plane of existence, well, "exists". Not a heaven or a hell, but a dimension. It's been recorded millions of times of people experiencing similar dreams through whatever crazy circumstances. Given the unlimited potential of our brain it would be almost impossible to dream the same thing as someone else. Now, if these are hallucinations, it would somewhat make sense since we experience the same reality together and inhabit the same planet with the same weather and struggles as each other. So to hallucinate similar experiences makes sense. But in the same places? Even as hallucinations, those are individually mapped to where we've been and how we've experienced being there. I agree with you, I just wanted to put in my two-cents. I believe a hallucination goes beyond just being a "chemical imbalance" since when you die, that's the biggest chemical imbalance but you don't function or exist when you die, only your shell of a body does. So where does that conscience go? Where does what made you who you are go? Maybe it would go to the only other place it would exist, and that's the only place we experience when we dream. Brain activity completely ceases to exist when you die, so I doubt "you" would just fester and buzz around your brain after death like a bee. We'd have been able to detect that kind of incredible activity and harvest / rebirth it by now with the amount of brain science and technology there is today.
  6. Dream Eater Theory: What if dreams actually exist the same way the internet does? In an infinite "space" that we can only access subconsciously, or outside of our physical element? What brought this on is that I have reoccurring dreams, just as you do, about places that don't exist but they're there when you dream. So, what if these places are like websites where they DO exist but you can't physically exist "Inside" of them. You only access time to time when you have the ability to. I'm talking about the possibility of a "dream map". Just another sub-conscience or dimension that exists that you can actually visit. If we were able to expand outside of these reoccurring dream environments WHILE we're dreaming, who's to say we wouldn't be able to eventually make a "map" of where they are? Maybe if you stepped outside of your own dream environments WHILE you were dreaming, you could visit an environment that's been created entirely by someone else? You may not see them while they're there (the consideration of layers takes effect), but you can visit there. That being said, Maybe you CAN actually see them while they're dreaming there, who knows. Maybe the reason we so rarely experience the SAME dreams someone else is having is because the dream environment is so expansive that the possibility of us meeting someone else in their dreams is so phenomenally incomprehensible. **HOWEVER** I feel like this theory also adds a real threat of the incredible harsh effects of "Dream Eater". This resulting in De'ja Vu and memories and experiences you have (such as how it feels to actually sink your teeth into live skin similar to biting into a cube of jello, and falling off of couches into oceans or falling off of cliffs during a lucid dream as you've 'dreamt' before) What are your thoughts? Do you feel Poke'mon would feel the same ill effects? I honestly (and the main purpose of this post, I'm sorry it took so long to get to) think that Dream Eater is incredibly underrated as an ability. Yes, it saps away some health respectfully, but it should ALSO cause sometimes confusion and very occasionally a bit of paralysis (upon wake, but also lower the accuracy to balance the effectiveness).
  7. I apologise if I'm overlooking it, but I wanted to bring up the idea of possibly having a sub forum for discussing regular life outside of PokéMMO for the users to discuss their day or life stories or general life questions and advice

    New bike skins

    I think having Akira-style motorcycles would be a good addition too

    Ranks

    I honestly really like that there aren't ranks or levels.It adds sense of "reality" to where if Pokemon actually did exist, I wouldn't know how good you actually were until I've already heard by word of mouth how good you were, or battled you and you proved yourself or showed off your badges. It's more personal to not know those things, because new and veteran players would be much less likely to have anything to do with one-another since they wouldn't battle or work together if they can just easily see a strength difference. It would eliminate the "friend" aspect. Ranks and Levels dehumanizes the experience, in my opinion. Being blown away by someone's skills? You can't replace that with a number. You feel it first hand. However that being said, I love the idea of having a physical/visual proof of your achievements. Something that can be admired. These could be seen on trainer cards or on worn rare items that aren't exchangeable. Maybe a hat pin or a really neat bike/motorcycle.
  10. Gen 4 was a really awkward time for me, personally. I've been in it since Gen 1 and had a weird "I'm kind of too old for Pokemon" phase when Gen 4 came out. Even though I still loved all the Pokemon before that, when I got back into seriously playing again, I couldn't ever develop a taste for Gen 4. There are maybe a couple in 4 that I think look alright, but overall I will always love how they introduced tactically using Multi-Types. That's probably the coolest thing aside from EVs that's ever happened to it. Poison/Fighting though? That's not bad at all. It's a weird set, but because it's weird there really aren't many Pokemon who would be a threat to it
  11. It'll be Johto, with a great Jumpeon event
