I fucking love Survival hunter because of the pet shit. Nothings better than bashing skulls with your monster pet.
Also the pet battling is pretty fucking fun, the pet dungeons are challenging as fuck unless you follow a guide.
But warcraft doesn't need a successor. It needs cataclysm 2.0
Wipe the slate clean, put all the old content into a bronze dragon shine phasing section. And Let players start 'fresh' While keeping all there achievements.
It's so jaring to go Cata/bc/lk/cata/mist. Because the storyline is so fucked up now when you're leveling through.
As for the pokemon side of it.
Keep producing games as they do, but outsource canonical pokemon games. Let the B/C team go a little crazy, make a bunch of spinoffs do what nintendo does with mario.
Pokemon Kart, Pokemon party, Pokemon smash. Etc.
And if pokemon Go can add 2 new pokemon, why the hell can't you throw in a handful in the spinoff games. That would make people buy them.
Pokemon Smash.>Introduces Mega hitmonChan/Lee/Top>Brings in a few fighing types.
Pokemon Kart>Race car pokemon.
You could even get some side team to do something like a breath of the wild bullshit one.
But whatever you do, keep making base line pokemon games.
