    631-649* I was combining the final number of the Unova Dex with the National Dex.
  • Crabhand - May 7, 2011 6:18 p.m.

    Carolyn I had the exact same problem with the PC boxes arbitrarily restricting numbers. I used to organize my boxes by type, but water and normal fill up way too quickly, so I decided to do it by National Dex number. I know someone else who does it the same way who is just as annoyed about the numbers, so you're not alone. And we totally need an extra storage solution, my extras are flowing into my 631-653 and party boxes.

    I would love to see and MMO style pokemon game. Also a pokemon stadium/colosseum game where the touch screen has your interface(moves, pokemon, and use items) could make for a really cool versus mode! I know it's kind of late but i have caught two shiny pokemon in the past three months. I was playing pokemon soul silver again in anticipation for black/white. When i entered the burned tower i ran into a koffing. I got extremely excited, then i realized i only had three pokeballs(not great or ultra) and all my pokes were a good 5+ levels higher. Luckily i caught him with my last pokeball. Thus earning me my first legit shiny. My second was a watchog about 35 minutes into pokemon black on day one, luckily i had just gotten my pokeballs. Earning me my second shiny :D!!!

    Pokemon Snap and a super smash bros. version with every pokemon!

    Also, I thought of an upgrade to one of the 'yo mama jokes' that I just had to add: Yo mama so fat she turns Splash into Surf.

    oh man rappidash was not mentioned anywhere

    I don't know if it would really be the best sort of thing for a full on console release, but the only Pokemon game I've cared much about besides the usual handheld ones was the Pokemon TCG game. It was a neat change of pace and seeing a modern one would be awesome. If Nintendo ever works out how to do online distribution, it would make a great downloadable for the new console or a full game for the 3DS. Come on, then, I have to fight for the legendary cards!

    Carolyn I’m glad you brought up the PC box thing! I do the same numbering system so only using 4 #s as the box name in Black/White frustrated me but when I talked about it to other people they didn’t get it. I eventually just used lower case l’s as ones and upper case O’s as zeros so I could have the entire three digit number, it looks kinda dumb but it works. As for question of the week Pokémon Stadium 3 would be cool as long as it wasn’t just another Battle Revolution.
  • BowTiesAreCool - May 4, 2011 4:30 a.m.

    I would love to see a new Stadium type game that offers online play similar to Black/White, but also allows RPG elements like Colosseum did (No shadow Pokemon though). You could upload Pokemon from your Black/White cartridge and play a story mode to obtain items or Pokemon and have online battles with other players. Also, Pokemon Snap 2. C'moooon Nintendo!
  • iamawesome27 - May 4, 2011 4:27 a.m.

    I know it's late, but I just thought of this: yo mamma so fat, even Groudon cant get her side of the see-saw off the ground. As for a game, I want a Street Fighter style fighter.
  • BackwaterRifle - May 4, 2011 3:32 a.m.

    Actually I found out gen 3 introduced the move Heatwave so im gonna have to take back my comments about Hoenn being great. I love Hoenn, but Heatwave terrorizes me in online battling, nothing else seems to do anything but fire and now i have to retire my wailord, and she only saw one day in action. Next up, Floatzel, faster at the cost of power. If this works, my trick roomers can wipe the floor. Also am i the only person that when they are about to win in an epic fashion that the onnection dies, and im sure its not on my end of it?

    I want the new controller to act as a way to play my DS pokemon games on the TV ala' Super Gameboy or the GBA player for the cube. Also I'm 29 and still like Star Wars. But then again I live in the midwest so obviously I'm the byproduct of imbreeding: (
  • Smash_Bro - May 4, 2011 12:14 a.m.

    Man, she's really specific about her Pokemon box organizing... I just organize according to type. What game do I want to see for Project Cafe? I love, love, LOOOVE Pokemon Colosseum, and I also like Battle Revolution, even though it was missing any real substance. I'd like one "Return of Cipher Co. Combo" with PBR on the side, please. To go.
  • Ampharos - May 4, 2011 12:10 a.m.

    I would really like a new Pokemon Snap!. It would be interesting to see all the new Pokemon that would be included since the last one was made. It also might be intriguing to see what new game mechanics nintendo could add to the new game such as different ways of luring or stunning Pokemon in their natural surroundings!
  • Bluemoon180 - May 4, 2011 12:05 a.m.

    Hey I have a solution to your box labeling problem after all I already finished organizing my PC boxes so... So here is the main key thing that you might want to know "1" = lower case "L" and "zero" = capital "O". Since majority of the number labels always have this two numbers, you could always just change them to their equivalent look alike. So if you are going to change "601-630" you would have to type it up like this: 6_capital O_ lower case L- 63 capital O. This method should work out really fine since it worked out on me.... you might have little trouble changing the last box since the last number in the pokedex is 649 which is Genesect, so I just change 649 to 650! Wish this helped!

    Hey I was mentioned (kinda) for the bowser/pokemon conspiracy!! heres the link to the picture in case anyone else is curious about it.
  • deformedorange - May 3, 2011 11:05 p.m.

    th obvious Pokemon Stadium remake
  • TrainerTyson - May 3, 2011 7 p.m.

    I would like to see more of a Pokemon Stadium style game on the new Nintendo console. But where there would be some connectivity to the handheld games and future 3ds titles. I consider the handheld titles to be the "main" games. So the ability to unlock special items and Pokemon from the console game to my handheld titles would be sweet! And the option to use my 3ds as the controller with added features would be cool too!
  • megaklok - May 3, 2011 6:40 p.m.

    To the subject of pc box organization I numbered the boxes by region. For example I went Kanto 1, Kanto 2, Kanto 3, Kanto 4, Kanto 5, then the next box would be K 1/J 1. Then it would go on like that untill I had two boxes for extras.
  • ace1350 - May 3, 2011 6:02 p.m.

    Pokemon Stadium... Pokemon Colleseum type game... ummmmmm...... anyway look here: Freaky
