Hell yes on the Megas. Also the trade evos. And the other stuff, even (though I don't play as a male, I support guys looking fabulous!)Walks in, grabs the first person they come across and whispers softly "The return of Megas".
All jokes aside, I most certainly like stuff like height and weight differences across species. You can't make me believe every species you meet is the exact same height and weight. I would also quite like 'cosmetic' changes to Pokémon, like how Pokémon with stripes could for example miss a certain striping pattern or have an inverted color pattern. (Now this is something that won't happen purely because of the sheer amount of Pokémon existing nowadays and making 1 to 3 variations of them would just be too much, I guess.)
Better customization for the male character. SwSh was a step in the good direction and I quite liked XY's one too despite being quite short of options but then BDSP took a big step back for the male character again. Men can also be into fashion and actually look good, for crying out loud.
A 'trainer relationship' function would be cool too, where certain responses have a reaction. A certain answer gives +5 friendship while others do -2 and that affects stuff like the dialogue, the teams they face you with or even giving you items. YOu could even go so far as the rival refusing to come to your help when you're in time of need. Now with this too, I realize this is more something for a visual novel I guess, but I like it when characters are actual characters/people and it would be cool to see that reflected.
I think we're also long overdue an item that allows you to bypass trade evolutions. And if we're not, at least put the final stages of those lines in the games as available to catch in the wild.
But in regards to the cosmetic changes, I think there's proof enough that we could at least get something like markings added if you consider Spinda's whole thing is literally like 4 billion different patterns of spots. If that's doable, then adding something just as simple could theoretically be doable for every pokemon... although that would be stealing Spinda's gimmick (oh wow, what a shame) and I don't know how people would feel if everything had a chance of having some random spots on it. Stripes and other more carefully tailored markings would be nicer, but I think spots would have the easiest application without looking horrendous more often than not.
Clone Pikachu, Venusaur, Charizard and Blastoise markings, though- GO has them, so can we at least get those added to a game? I know, "another Charizard form" and "ugh Pikachu and the Gen 1 starters again" but hey, the work's already been done for them.
