Video game wise - Yes, they should make a darker version for older players, not so much zapdos plucking peoples eyes out... but older, in the anime you can seriously see how kiddish it is *banned episodes* earthquakes from whiscash, guns from shop keepers, silly crap that could've just been over looked but since its a kids show they banned the episodes..

things they could do to make it just a hair darker for teens, KILL SOMEONE ... have more than Cubones mother die ...like...die die not faint... lol

Make the main character...18 not 10-.-;

*anime*Have Brock mate with someone..

Zerxer: Pokemon Colosseum (although Rui half ruins the trend).
They should've brought Wes back for XD, but oh well.


DP was quite deep as it stands, but we'll just have to wait and see what Platinum will add to the mix.

I'm not ashamed of people knowing I like Pokemon. I tell them straight out, I like Pokemon, don't like it? Tough, I do. And they respect me from that.

I do agree, however, that Pokemon should have some darker stuff. In games and Anime. I like kawaii stuff like Pikachu and such, but it'd be cool like if it was something like the Jak series. (Except the racing part, that killed Jak off.)

My appeal in Poke'mon has always been about how young and innocent things are. While I do think that some of the old Red/Blue darker themes should come back (To make the player really feel the need to stop the antagonists), actually maiming/killing Poke'mon would be absolutely cruel and disgusting. I think it was mentioned that Poke'mon find "battling" sort of a game or sport, sort of how puppies in real life bite and tackle each-playfully. Making them fight to the death would be horrible. The games' main appeal, I think, is that sort of innocence of adorable animals forging a bond and innocent play (Use Harden, Metapod!) with the player.

Though yeah, we need older protagonists. Ash is what, seventeen in a ten-years-old's body now? wink.gif

I'd rather not have a favourite feel-good game become "darker and edgier". As one previously mentioned, furry little rodents saving tiny animals from an egg-shaped scientist must be serious business. XD

It has been becoming gradually darker, and it's actually progressing as opposed to the shit that Sonic has turned into. The new Sonic game has swords for God's sake.

I think that the main series games should stay pretty much the same, for the kiddies, but they should make more side games targeted for older teens/adults. Genious Sonority was kinda going in the right direction with Colosseum, but then they made XD, and then they made Trozei. >_> But really, I loved how Wes was an anti-hero, how he wasn't doing everything for the sake of mankind at first but for his own reasons.

I think a new Pokémon game like this should create some good characters. Many of the characters in the Pokémon games are very two-dimensional. "I'm Candice! I like to shop!" "I'm Prof. Rowan! I scare small children!" The Cipher boss in Colosseum was pure genius. That plot twist was something that no one expects from something so innocent as Pokémon.

Plus, the Pokémon do need to look more mature-ish, too. I'm not saying all of the Pokémon look kawaii... there's a fair share of cute Pokémon (Pikachu, Clefairy, Chimecho...) and tough Pokémon (Garchomp, Sharpedo, Houndoom...), and I guess now trampy Pokémon too. *COUGHLOPUNNYCOUGH* I'm saying that Ludicolo doesn't need to be grinning and dancing while burned with 3HP left. (Not that Ludicolo should ever get in a condition like that... it's my favorite Pokémon!) They should look hurt, and they should look non-super-ultra-always-kawaii-chipper.

And, yeah. :/

Unlike Batman, I don't think Pokemon could pull it off. Besides, how dark could it get considering they have to include Clefairy, Jigglypuff, Luvdisc, etc.?

Nononononononono

Adding violence or...well, anything that would make it rated Teen would kill the series. Violence doesn't make games fun, it's the gameplay that makes it fun (with a few exceptions...like Mortal Kombat or Rampage =D). If they do anything, they should make the story deeper or something...or at least less kiddified. With the direction it's going, the average Pokemon game will be 3 and under by next gen noes.gif

What the hell are you talking about? It's getting darker per generation.

In fact play XD a bit if you want a dark Pokemon game -_-

XD was better than R/S/E/FR/LG in my opinion. Good storyline and some laughs. I don't think violent games, but better storyline and more insane plot twists.

I think they should drop the anime, and all the merchandising stuff that goes with the games, (although they won't cause it makes lots of money). It's that that makes Pokemon appear to some people as kiddy. Games like Mario don't have adult storylines or content, but the majority of people don't see Mario as a kids game, becuase it doesn't have all the kiddy merchanise attched to it. That said, I think a more detailed story would be good. And drop the rubbish about how Pokemon eggs magically appear. I'm not saying we need to know about Pokemon mating, but we don't need to be fed some babyish story. Why not just leave the whole bit about how eggs get there. I mean, who really cares. We just want the egg to hatch to hatch to get the Pokemon that's inside it.

I want the villian from Pokemon 4Ever, with his dark balls, DAMN that was cool. He would make a good Wii villian, have him ACTUALLY steal your pokes and make you battle them, that would be cool. At one point he will steal your starter and you must get him back by beating him at the top of the Elite Four or something.

some of my favorites



it wouldnt have to be violent, but the game and the anime series could be more intense. maybe when ash gets older or something he can address more teenage like issues. or in the game pokemon can actually suffer injuries that make it so they cant battle anymore or something like that. i wanna see more in game strategy and longer games with higher level npc pokemon.

deeper, darker and rougher story lines would be great. the blood and gore can stay out of pokemon tho cuz enough people already say it influences animal fighting enough without the blood and gore. we dont need nintendo going thru a whole michael vick like lawsuit because some kid decided to sue them saying it encouraged him or her to train their dog to be vicious or something dumb like that.

I don't really care if the anime is darker or not. I lost interest when I was 11.

In terms of the games:
I wouldn't mind if it were targeted for an older audience, but I know the type of parent that is very obsessive about rating, and content. If I were a kid that wasn't allowed to play pokemon because of a T rating, then I would be upset.

It's all about the gameplay, in my opinion. Screw the story X3!
A good story line doesn't always make a good game, it just makes it better.
