Pokémon Go fans have revealed everything they would change about the game if they had control over Niantic and could decide the fate of the mobile adventure.
Pokémon Go is a massive game with a passionate fan base. So, many people around the world have varied opinions on its quality and direction and are quick to share their dissatisfaction online.
It doesn’t help that Pokémon Go’s changes to Raid Passes have caused serious backlash from fans, leading to an already vocal fanbase becoming even more critical of the game’s issues, with many being quick to point the finger at Niantic.
Ultimately, Niantic runs a business, but there are many decisions made regarding Pokémon Go that fans find baffling. But what if they were given the keys to the Pokémon Go franchise and allowed to make the decisions?
Pokémon Go players reveal how they would change the game
A user on the Pokémon Go Reddit created a thread asking fans what they would do if they owned Niantic for a day. Many fans had strong opinions on the first thing they would change if given the chance.
“Open all gifts, send all gifts in one button. Gift limit, as many friends as you can have, currently 400,” one user posted, while another said, “Ranged Raid Passes cost 100 coins, no limit on remote raids. Long distance via some sort of in-game challenge. Bring back research breakthrough legendaries.”
“I would change the egg system and make it so people can delete the ones they don’t want,” one user said, “I would also constantly change the Pokémon you get from hatching eggs because I believe that this would make people walk and play the game more. Imagine if just for one day you could get a rare Pokémon after walking a certain distance? I would love it.”
“The ability to remotely remove your Pokémon from Gyms if it has been stuck there for too long. Seriously, my Archaeodong has been stuck in a Gym for almost a month, I want it back,” one user mentioned, referring to Pokémon stuck in Gyms until they are defeated.
A user came up with a list:
“1.- Lucky exchanges are at a distance
2.- Remote passes are significantly cheaper than local passes.
3.- Pokémon participation in leagues is based on level, not PC.
3.5.- The level is clearly displayed on the Pokémon’s information.
4.- Restore Incense.
5.- All costumed Pokémon can evolve.”
Pokémon Go fans want many changes to the game, but no one knows the decision-making process that goes on behind closed doors at Niantic. It’s possible that even being temporarily given control won’t be enough to change Pokémon Go in the short term.
