Well, I kinda get where that's coming from, but saving someone from danger isn't a gender-based thing. Plus, a lot of games talk about how Pokemon like battling, and the Sinnoh games talked about how Pokemon willingly go after trainers-they're not in danger, they're just hoping to get stronger.It's like in TV shows where the man is trying to save the woman from the monster.
I sometimes feel we (Trainers) are monsters.

I THINK that they are adding different ideas that they have, and trying to see what people like best. I'm hoping that, one day, GF will make that one perfect game, with all the perfect features from the games.Removing features between gens for no other reason than to make the previous generation more "unique".
I'd say that it's even more depressing than getting Korrina's Lucario since we saw how much Lillie cared for Cosmog throughout the storyline. They were really close and while I understand what they were doing, it still felt so sad that Lillie couldn't keep it. I do like that your character still offers to give the Pokeball to Lillie after the capture, but the logic does seem a bit flawed. I even thought to myself "Lillie, you deserve Solgaleo more than I do. Live the dream of every ten year old and have a Legendary Pokemon as your starter Pokemon!" It is a very sweet gesture from Lillie that she wants Nebby to stay with your character and it does show more of her own growth, but it was so sad. I would have much rather had the option of getting my own Cosmog after the game and letting Lillie keep Solgaleo/Lunala instead.Just finished the main story and I gotta say that I agree with those that dislike that Lillie gave away Nebby to you. It's the getting Korrina's Lucario all over again, I don't want Pokémon that someone else is attached to, that's just painful :/ Especially since I boxed it ^^;
And her excuse doesn't even make sense, since she says she wants to travel and stuff, and then says Nebby should go to you or else it won't get to see the world :/ You're the one going to Kanto, Lillie, while I'm not getting off these islands.
I would've liked it better if you just got the second Cosmog from someone and you had to evolve it all the way yourself. Would make me feel less guilty about not naming it Nebby too. I guess they want you to have the Legendary before taking on the League, but I really would've preferred it that way.
I am still surprised that we didn't get more battle restaurants given how many there are within Alola. As much as I dislike the idea of paying money to level grind, I still say that this is the only time that would have worked when there is pretty much no way to run out of money. There are Pokemon catching missions throughout the game, you can do the Pyukumuku mission every day, you get a ton of money after the Ultra Beast storyline, finding high priced items within the game is super easy, you can transfer high priced items from the demo and finding treasure within Poke Palego is pretty easy too. If there was ever a game in the series that could justify having Battle Restaurants, this would be it. I have more money in both games than I know what to do with. Even Double Battle themed restaurants would have been fine.The Restaurants...
I mean thanks for the Heart Scales, but.
Back in Lumiose City you could net tons of Exp. and piles of cash for as long as you needed in the post-game. Le Wow was a gold mine. Would've been great to have some kind of equivalent considering the Lv.100 requirement for Hyper Training. Battle Buffet is cute, but less rewarding...
Because the Dex Rotom would get jealous. Imagine you liking the Rotom you battle with more than your Dex one, you know he'd hate thatA minor thing, but if we have the Rotom Pokédex, why can't we catch Rotom in the game?
ALL OF THIS.Overall the games are great, but what really gets to me are:
* having to level up to 100 to use Bottle Caps, in spite of the fact that getting there is really slow (this is where I REALLY miss my Blissey filled secret bases in ORAS)
* no O-powers or anything to replace it, you know, to make that aforementioned level 100 thing easier, or to get more money to buy the obscenely expensive clothes
* in X/Y, communicating with someone was much easier. In S/M, it's a little more difficult.
* I dislike the method of upgrading the facilities you host in the Festival Plaza, either by ranking up or by talking to someone, both relying on a lot of luck. And I get the feeling that the 5 star Lotteries are not any likelier to give you the top prize than the 1 star ones. I have 3 five star lotteries and all week the best prize I got was an Ultra Ball.
