Many Pokémon fans have loved the idea of their favorite partner following them, free from their Pokéball, while they explore the region of the game. In the latest games, Pokémon Sun and Moon, we got to explore one of the most unique environments in the entire series, but we did so without the aid of our Pokémon until it was time to call them for battle or we called a rental Uber-mon to carry us around.
It is definitely something that I’ve missed since the remakes of Gold and Silver; HeartGold and SoulSilver really forced you to bond with whatever Pokémon was training and you could feel free of the restrictions of almost all other games that didn’t let you keep your favorite monster right by your side.
Just so happens that walking and running animations for all Pokémon on the over-world are already contained in Pokémon Sun & Moon, but will we ever see them?
Hypothetically: If a DLC patch was announced to allow you to have a Pokémon follow you around while walking, would it be worth money? And if so, how much?
