ITT: Gen 4+ Pokémon that would be better without the physical/special split.
I'm a (novice) gamedev and an experienced artist, currently making prototypes in my spare time. Something in the back of my mind recently has been my disappointment with pokemon never really turning into something more than what it started as, despite how nice the world and designs are.
I also have been looking over all the pokemon ripoffs and thinking about why they have been failures, and how to avoid that if I was to make a game that takes the aspects I enjoy about pokemon and implements them into something that isnt a button masher.
But what about you? What aspect of pokemon do you find important? I made a strawpoll for you to vote in.
