    So like. While EPIC's going through OI/Amaya, we should take a look at our canon route reqs and tinker with stuff. Some of them are outlandish.

    That said, Route 1:

    Current: 2 wilds, 1 trainer

    :estar: :pidgey: [4-5]
    :estar: :rattata: [4-5]

    Thoughts?

    Two wilds and a Trainer seems reasonable to me.

    Kinda feel like Pidgey's level should be able to drop lower, but that's just me.

    I'd say switch to 3 wilds, 0 trainers. Only time people train on Route 1 is when it's the Johto playthrough and the cooltrainers are being jerks to newbies.

    Honestly, I'd agree with that, Leon. Also, I'm not sure how I feel about lowering /anything's/ level below 4, just because they're so weak at that point, they're really tough to train. It takes a long time to train as it is.

    Like I said, its just me. I'm not gonna fight for a level 3 pidgey or anything, just... feels weird not to see them lower than 4.

    The game's range is what, 2-4? We don't need to stick to the games that closely, especially when two-thirds of the level 6 STAB will be normally effective on both and Bulba's is only NVE on half. If someone picks Bulba, they're easy-moding the first two (three if we count weakening electric STAB) gyms anyway so a simple pidgey shouldn't be too much of an issue.

    Yeah I like this. No really rare Pokémon and like the game, it could at least give some exp.

    I like dropping the trainer requirement and moving it to three wilds.

    Yup.

    I wouldn't be bothered with dropping that trainer requirement simply because they can just ask for a trainer if they really want to train their Pokémon that way.

    Could we possibly add another mon or two to the wild list? The OIs and Amaya were designed with the star rankings in mind, compared to our current versions of the canon regions, and the first routes of the former have at least three wilds.

    I also want to throw out the idea of adding Route 22 as a sub-area to Viridian, a la Valencia Field. It'd let us introduce more lines to Kanto earlier on, and give players more options heading into Viridian Forest. You can level grind there in canon, why not here?

    Well I mean this takes place 10-15 years after canon so it wouldn't be uncommon for some different migration patterns with Pokémon. Maybe some Spearow/Nidoran have come from Route 22 to Route 1 over the years. Maybe even something like Pichu, Munchlax, or something else we have added to the updated Kanto Dex.

    Well there is at least one pikachu there in canon, so I'm sure that Pichu is a viable option.

    Maybe we could make a deal like whatever early place in Amaya with the Meercune and things where there's a path you can go on after the requirements? Call it the grass on the sides of Pallet Town?

    It also gives a way to get the baby Pokémon early on so that they aren't B-Day Promo exclusive or just completely useless by the time you find them.

    Cleffa could be found in Mt. Moon later.

    Hm...will the "shaking grass/swirling dust" thing that happens in routes be applicable to other regions other than Unova? If so then the evolved forms of Pokémon like Pichu or Cleffa could be found in them if they were on certain routes.

    Could be, but do we really want people to have the chance of encountering wild Pikachu on route 1? I think we could pull a B2/W2 there and just have the Shaking Grass wild be Rattata.

    I believe the idea was that eventually we'd incorporate shaking grass everywhere. Once we're 100% sure how to implement it, anyway...

    If we're adding an extra part to the route a la what 501 has, we'd be better off making the additional wilds there be ones that aren't on Route 22's list. Or at least, significantly more common than at 22. Something to make the extra work more worth it.

    Are we all talking about the same route? Route 22 is the route south of Pallet Town that you could find Tangela in. Route 23 is where you fought Gary west of Viridian.
