You remember how Pokemon Cards in the GBA era all had e-card bar-codes along the edge? I think that's an almost perfect example of how it should work. If they worked NFC into an already existing product (there are still Pokemon toys out there
) then have it unlock similar things as the e-cards in R/S/E/FR/LG then it shouldn't matter.
Extra trainer battles, rare Pokemon swarming in areas they otherwise wouldn't, cosmetic changes, if they repeat stuff like that again then it'll be fine (after all, did any of you even notice that that kind of stuff was in your games but we couldn't access it? The only indication I got before researching was that the Sevii islands seemed really barren and rubbish
I'm still undecided on whether this system should be used for event Pokemon or not. I think it'd be cool if they had a real-life download event where you got given a toy rather than just the download, and then you get that as a keep sake, or maybe just one Pokemon per gen could be via figure, but if everything started going that route then we'll have a problem.
I always keep thinking Smash Bros would be perfect for this knowing the fanbase is way more hardcore and die hard.
though not really the most liked idea imagine buying rare trophies, coming across someone online using it and how this would be awesome on display
who knows not the perfect evolution of the series but still not a bad thought
I've thought before how fantastic it'd be to have collectable Gashapon figures for Smash Bros. Provided they were cheap and only had superficial value in game (unlocking extra info on the trophy for example) than I'd be all for it.
