Twisting the trend isn't exactly predictable. Also I can't really see them give up the story structure (human turns Pokémon, makes a Pokémon friend, runs away with them, solves the main conflict, the characters that caused the conflict have to leave, then come back), and I like seeing them playing around with it.>>35268004>If they were to change up the story formula more, I'd like if they did one where you don't start with a single partner, instead you end up with a small group.
That's kind of like GtI, but I get your point.>twist
How would the partner be chosen, then? Would it be a fixed story character like Grovyle?
Actually, I just had a good idea. Basically, it would turn out that the seemingly pointless questions you get asked during the story are actually an extended personality quiz, and the partner is chosen based on your answers.
I don't really see this happening in an official game, but at least we might have fangames or hacks. Hey, remember the /pmdg/ fangame?
Also, I recently saw someone making a Red Rescue Team hack. It didn't really seem like anything special, but I'm glad there's some interest in it.
