Default Feeding

I'm not talking about whimpy berries and pokeblocks, I'm talking about meals... I mean I think there should be some place to buy poke food and if you don't feed them your pokemon will die. I mean it should say if they are nourished, hungry, starving, full, famished, bloated, or whatever. I mean it would make the whole thing of them liking you different and there could be different foods and desserts for pokemon. Also, it could affect your battles such as a snorlax has the ability Weight that makes his attacks more powerful the more food he's eaten. Another thing is performance. I mean do you think a starving pokemon is going to beat a healthy strong pokemon? No, which is why you should give them the best and everything. Of course I know people cannot feed them every day, so when you save the game, if you save in certain places, they will feed your pokemon for free, but of course at a minimum, or you can pay to have them fed for a certain amount of time at a pokemon center when your not playing, so that it feeds them for an alotted amount of time such as a month or whatever. Another thing is Leftovers could be a whole different thing and there could be eating contests like in the past games, although you couldn't actually eat and that's where you got leftovers in GSC

I dunno, it's just an idea. I know there are many bad things about it.

That concept would make everything more realistic, but IMO it would also make things more annoying. I'd sacrifice the game being a little more realistic any day for not having to feed my 200+ pokemon.

That's just me though. =P

You probably wouldn't have to feed your pokemon in the PC. =\ But still, I dont like it XD I'm lazy. =P Plus, it'd make things harder on a lot of the younger played, like my little 6 year old cousin. =P


Plus, think of the n00bs! 600 threads a day with: My pokemon died, why?

Yeah, I have my own mouth to feed plus my 4 neopets.



Pokemon feeding would be a god edition but not really because not enough people have time. My pokemon would be dead by now.

Well, the way I see it, pokemon are in a state of suspended animation when inside their poke-balls, so not being fed while in them wouldn't be a factor.
And I guess one could just assume that pokemon are fed when their put into storage or something; unless they're still inside poke-balls.
Fact is, I don't think Nintendo wants to make the game all that complex....'cause then you'd have to consider other factors like thirst and uh..making pit stops. Then it would just end up like Digimon World; having to sacrifice exploration in order to babysit your party -_-;

...Not to mention that hunger would most likely have to apply to the trainer as well. I mean, if you've noticed, the player's character never seems to have to eat, sleep, go to the bathroom, bathe, etc.....by RL standards, he should have either died or succumbed to a Gollum-like state. :P

like wt the others said so, food for the game is too complex & annoying, but in animes, lol, a whole different matter.
