Remove Extra Key Press for Sweet Scenting

Question

awkways   

As many of you probably know by now, with the recent update there was an additional prompt added to press A when Sweet Scenting. My suggestion is simple and easy to implement: Please return sweet scenting to how it was before the unova update. It may be a small change and it may not even be noticeable to some, but to those who EV train, EXP farm, or hunt shinies frequently, it's not only annoying but also slightly more time consuming.  Previously I was able to hunt with just my mouse, but now I need to use two hands just to summon one horde. It would be one thing if there was a way to hotkey using sweet scent (perhaps a refillable ocarina or something similar), so it could all be on keyboard, but since there is not it requires using both mouse and keyboard. This suggestion would make EV'ing pokemon, hunting shinies, horde farming for items, and Leveling pokemon easier and horde grinding for any reason slightly less of a pain in the butt. Below are some examples of before and after the update for clarification:

 

How it was before (and what this post is suggesting):

-Press "Use Sweet Scent"

-Pablo used Sweet Scent!

-A Wild Horde Appeared! (automatically)

-Fight/Bag/Pokemon/Run

 

How it is now:

-Press "Use Sweet Scent"

-Pablo used Sweet Scent!

-(nothing happens until you press A) *Press A*

-A Wild Horde Appeared!

-Fight/Bag/Pokemon/Run

 

Thoughts on this or possibly an explanation for why this was added recently are all welcome.

 Whether we press A or B(usually cancel key) button after using sweet scent, the horde will appear anyway, so I dont see the need of having to press A.

I guess it would be a bit more convenient to have the horde appear automatically upon pressing sweet scent, as stated above.

A sweet scent ocarina is an idea that has been tossed about for some time, and I've never been on board with it since it makes Leppas much less valuable. However a refillable object, or perhaps a pokeblock made using Leppas or even a craftable item with berry powder and leppas. This would create an item that could be hotkey'd to call hordes and not affect the market for leppas (in fact would help them).

Well there is the honey item you can get from combees, could make a recipe to craft those.

I'm well aware that the sweet scent ocarina has been rejected by staff plenty of times and it seems staff misses the point every time. We're not looking for an infinite PP device that circumnavigates having to spend money on leppas/elixers, just the ability to hotkey it like we can with fly, surf, strength, ect by using certain items or ocarinas, hence why I used the word "refillable" earlier.

 

Regardless, this suggestion should not have anything to do with the ability to hotkey sweet scent and I apologize if it came off that way. It's simply to remove the extra key press. Even if the ability to hotkey sweet scent was available, this suggestion would still have been posted.

You can still hunt with the mouse, the arrow on message boxes are in fact clickable in overworld.

But people still prefer hunting rats instead.

Thanks for the reply, this is very helpful. I have been trying this out and it's not bad but I wonder, would it be possible to utilize the whole message box instead of that small arrow? I'm also just curious why this extra step was added in the first place, as @FlareBlitzz pointed out, the horde is summoned regardless of you pressing "A" or "B".

its just annoying cause muscle memory kicks in and i tab out to do some random stuff while waiting for my horde to appear, and then it didn't cause i didn't click the lil arrow.

 

almost as annoying as that 1 extra step in pokecenters

@Squirtle @Kyu @Desu Is this possible? I realize it's a small change, but imo that's what makes it more feasible. We've seen at least 2 updates since this was posted and don't have an official response
