Dae asks: Secret Bases

Slow news period again. It’s the calm before the storm I guess. Corocoro is still a bit off seeing as it releases on the 12th of August. Be patient, my dear friends!

In the meantime, let’s talk about something else than X&Y for a bit, and let’s discuss Secret Bases! Everyone’s favorite side-mechanic from Ruby and Sapphire (and DPPt) I guess. I kinda hope it makes a return in X&Y, but somehow I doubt that and I believe they’ll hold it out for a bit longer until the remakes hit. Secret bases work perfectly combined with Streetpass, as opposed to having to link your GBA with those nasty link cables. Anyway, back to Secret Bases. Do you like them? Do you prefer the underground version above the Hoenn version? What was your favorite location for secret bases? (Mine was in the ‘hidden’ route on the left of Hoenn, which was basically the best spot for secret bases) And do you think they should return in the newer games?

We’ll be back tomorrow with some Smash coverage. In the meantime, you can comment on this article or ask us a question in the new Ask PJN. Happy commenting!
