more is less (strategy)
What takes more strategy?
Having all the chess pieces? Or having the King, Queen, and Pawns?
That would still give Water-Type (and some Rock Type and Normal) Pokemon a bigger advantage for STAB moves and other Pokemon for really powerful moves like Surf and Waterfall, hell even Fly. It's not really a good thing, but it would take GameFreak so much time and etc etc to put that in the games and with that a lot of other things would undergo a big change. It's really not worth it..it's been four moves for over ten years now..there is no need for that much of a change since a lot of good players can already come up with very excellent strategies with just 4 slots, plus being limited to 4 moves really makes the game more challenging, there is no point in my opinion to play a game like Pokemon(which is simple and easy AS IS) to make it even more simple.What if there were 1 or 2 slots just for HMs?
But then you could never use moves like Surf or waterfall in battle, unless you could put those HMs on slots that were for use in battle, the 2 HM slots wouldn't exaclty be a good idea that way.only if you weren't allowed to use those moves in battle. Never ever. only then.
It wouldn't be a good idea either way. As I've said like 129289289358 times, one of the only actual sacrifices you make in the game is deciding what move to give up for something stupid like Rock Smash, or whether to give up a slot on your team for an HM bitch. The game would be much worse without it.But then you could never use moves like Surf or waterfall in battle, unless you could put those HMs on slots that were for use in battle, the 2 HM slots wouldn't exaclty be a good idea that way.
Really? Okay, you try winning a game of chess without Rooks, Bishops, or Knights. Just try.Its easy with only a few pieces. It takes more strategy to use all the pieces, you gotta know how to defend and offend opposing defence. But enough about chess. Pokemon should have more that 4 moves, but its to late to do that, cuz you would have to change a lot of other things in the game too
