I meant Pokémon version names.
It's how I do it anyway, HG/SS, B/W, X/Y, OR/AS, S/M. Though often people just run them together, BW, XY, ORAS, SM, etc.

I do it these ways too. I've only ever seen the & with Gen 1.

Anyway, my wants are as follows:
- Difficulty that accounts for Exp Share/Exp Share not being broken.
- A single player mode that isn't totally devoid of challenge; more like Gen 1 or 5's.
- A region that feels coherent and like it's a place (Hoenn) instead of a mishmash of random locations (Unova and Kalos).
- At LEAST 100 brand new Pokemon, not including Megas, evolutions of old stuff, or legends (of which there should be at least thirteen; a default ten plus a second trio to make up for XY screwing up).
- A decent post-game.

The gameplay isn't so much my concern is giving it a good game for all ages, rather than the increasingly easy stuff of Gen 6.

If The Easy/Challenge modes of Black/White 2 were around, and from the start, I'd be very much down for that.
That Challenge mode really actually gives leaders proper tools to work with.

I would be down with that.

I'd like to see a proper way to battle stuff available in general. Like rules like the Battle Maison's but spread into the game.

I'd also like to ask for a better story. I miss the days of Coliseum and XD, which infuriatingly looks like an emoticon.

I don't think I've ever referred to it by name for this reason. :(

Story would be a plus though, yeah. I thought B/W was a step in the right direction, but X/Y promptly had them jumping off the path onto a train going the other way instead of continuing that.

Although XY has one of the most affecting-yet-brief lines ever:
Spoiler:
"A war began.
"The man's beloved Pokémon took part in that war.
"Several years passed.
"He was given a tiny box."
That one really came out of nowhere.

That's true, though that's sort of my issue with X/Y in general.

Most of the story focuses on fabulous fashionistas and it turns out it had this genuinely great story in there they didn't really do anything with?

Not to say that forcing it down our throats would've been better, but still.

Also, Team Flare are like fashion victim evil scientologists.
The cult appropriation really makes sense when you think about it.

I can't help but blame Miyamoto...the guy seems to have a vendetta against story in video games, seeing as how he has supposedly given multiple companies the advice of "less story"...knowing full well how senior devs of his caliber hold sway over younger dev's opinions.

Feels like games don't get enough credit as story-telling mediums.

There's room for a spectrum, nothing everything has to be everything, or have one or the other.

I wonder how Pokemon from the VC versions of RBY will get natures and such through the Pokebank so they can be transferred to Sun and Moon.
