Am I the only one that wants Pokemon Sun and Moon to be hardcore?

    -More sinister teams of pokemon from the evil groups who won't give up until their leader is defeated.

    - More Mega evolution and primal reversions.

    - A lot more diversity between new pokemon types.

    - The region should be fine, though I do think Nintendo should come up with a region that is a lot bigger than previous ones, including Kanto, Johto, Unova, Hoenn, and Kalos.

    Please post your thoughts here, people!!:)

    Well, that all depends on what you mean by hardcore. We don't know much about the story or evil teams but for the first time ever, I kind of don't want any. The game seems pretty lighthearted right now an pretty closed off from the rest of the world. Right now I'm hoping for a Pidgeot that's native to that region since I want that Delta Species Lightning type Pidgeot.

    More mega evolved Pokemon would be nice but I want to them to buff megas that need them and give megas to Pokemon that need the competitive boost. If the only reason a Pokemon is getting a mega is to make it more viable for competitive use, then they need to just buff the Pokemon in general.

    I too support a game with all regions.

    Yeah, I honestly think everyone would love to have access to all the different regions on one cartridge. More megas? Sure. However we've heard nothing to say there'd be any of that just yet. Looking forward to seeing the new types of current pokemon though (Vulpix, Ninetales etc.)

    More mega's would be nice but we really don't need them unless they plan on lifting the restriction of one mega per team. In regards to the Ice Vulpix line, I was always interested in the way evolution worked within the same species, since in real life, many species have sub-species. To be honest, I would much rather see this and general balance over getting new megas but I know people are waiting for their favorite Pokemon to get a mega.

    Well, the new move mechanic Z-moves, it will be another factor to take in when competition battling. It will be interesting to see how teams will be formed and what 2017 Play season will have.

    Hardcore? Um, you mean like Mortal Kombat meets Pokemon? That sort of hardcore? Although it would be interesting to see a Grass Pokemon do a fatality on a fire type, no- we will not see that sort of hardcore.

    I wouldn't mind the games being more difficult. It seems the main story gets easier and easier with every release. There are waaay too many places to heal your Pokemon these days and compared to your Pokemon, the level of opposing Pokemon is quite low throughout most of the game. The original games certainly had their flaws, but you simply did not defeat the Elite Four the first time you strolled in there.

    Seriously? Why not? I did, and I'm nothing special. None of these games are "hard" per se. The challenge is to get the right team, see and own the whole pokedex and breed the best pokemon that you can of the current generation. And to do that in as little time as possible. However a little higher difficulty level would be welcomed.

    Because Gen 1 was quite a different beast compared to newer games. More power to you if you managed to get through the Elite Four and your rival the very first time you ever challenged them, most people were not able to do that.

    My point is: Once upon a time, when you entered a cave (or any larger area), there wasn't somebody halfway through it that would completely heal your Pokemon. Your Pokemon could faint outside of battle from poison. Your Pokemon took damage from poison outside of battle. You didn't get to choose the order in which you challenged the Elite Four.
    Things like that have made the games a lot easier over the years. Which is great for kids who like to play, but it is disappointing to a lot of their fan base that has been with them since the beginning.
