I honestly loved the idea of having the buddy Pokémon walk beside us because it’s adorable and allows us to make more of a connection towards our buddy Pokémon, but they need food too often. You give them 3 berries and then they’re full, you earn a heart, whatever, whatever, and then you go on a walk and a short amount of time later they’re hungry again. You gain a total amount of 3 hearts per day for feeding your buddy Pokémon so them being full should last for a while, but no it doesn’t. Every time I go on the app, my buddy Pokémon needs to be fed again. It becomes a chore instead of something fun and cute. You should either have it where it lasts for around 3 hours or have it where it will be hungry after a certain walking distance let’s say 1km or 2kms or do both where it will be hungry again after 3 hours or after 1 or 2 kms whichever comes first.
Also my buddy (larvitar) gets left behind which is both adorable and annoying. He always does catch up though, but somethings I think that he’s hungry, but no he’s just completely off the screen chilling. [ side note: I love how Larvitar runs. ]
The last thing that annoys me about the buddy Pokémon is you can’t tell them apart from wild Pokémon. They should have a coloured (perhaps your team colour) ring around them or something so you have tell the difference.
In any case, I love the addition of buddy Pokémon. I wasn’t expecting it at all, it was a lovely surprise.
Great but Improvements need to be Made
Overall the game has really improved since it’s release in 2016. Introducing trading Pokémon has helped me a lot and being able to make friends really improves the experience and expresses the aim of Pokémon Go; to make friends in the community. Some improvements that would improve the game for me and many others would be the ability to trade and/or sell items. I have evolved all the Pokémon that require the Dragon Scale and Metal Coat and still have about 10 of each left and I don’t know what to do with them. I feel like deleting them is wasting them since when they first came out I tried hard to get them. Another benefit of trading items is that items like Dragon Scale, Kings Rock and Metal Coat are fairly harder to obtain than when they were first released, so allowing item trading would mean that trainers that have been playing for a long time (e.g. since 2016) would be able to help trainers that have just started and need these items. Another improvement that would improve the game would be the ability to message your friends within the game. Bringing in this feature would mean that Ultra and Best friends would be able to organise remote battles without having to get their contact details and message them over Skype or Messages.
Introduce trading? But can’t trade items?
As much as I love this game and want to love it more I can’t seem to. This is the only app I would spend money on and yet with every update you fall short every time. Why can’t you trade or sell items that you have excess of? Why can you only trade Pokémon? If you are introducing Pokecentres, that’s good and all but what’s the point of me having 3 dragon scales after I’ve evolved my Seadra? There isn’t much. What’s the point of my girlfriend having 4 Kings Rock after she’s evolved Slowbro and Poliwhirl? Not a lot really. Waste of a reward system for 7 day streaks and just seems like the system isn’t as well thought out as it could be.
I get that it’s hard to make a game as good as this but you guys fall short every time. It’s just lucky that the Pokémon Community is as big and loving as it is.
And what sort of company doesn’t have an email where you can’t have some sort of free form text where you can actually explain a personal issue with the game. Your consumers have a right to voice there opinion to listen and it’s your job to listen. You say you are very supportive of the community but it feels like you guys don’t care about us and limit what we can tell you so you can hear what you want to hear.
