Default Main storyline with Unova Pokemon only - good idea?

In Black/White, you were only allowed to catch Unova Pokemon during the main storyline.

Did you think it was a smart move? I did, because that made the game feel fresh. :3

I really liked that way of doing it! Best part- no wild Geodude or Zubat in caves!

I definitely enjoyed it. Besides, more 'other-region' Pokemon means less new ones will be included in the main story, which I'd dislike.

Though I missed the Zubats and Geodudes, unlike everyone else (Woobat was crap), it felt pretty new. Though the new Pokemons in caves were crappy.

I felt disappointed at the exclusion of a main water route you must follow, but otherwise, I'm quite happy with the Unova only Pokemon storyline. My only problem is how hard it is to get older Pokemon.

I agree with most of the posts^ smart move. It gave us much the same feeling ASH had/s on his Unova journey.

But.. I hate how much the population increased! It's seriously like, every other step, you find a Patrat!

NO HM MANDATORY TEACHING REQUIREMENT HELL YEAH.

I liked how I didn't need to waste a move slot for Strength or something to get to places in the game. You had to use Cut, like once. Catch a random Patrat, easy, done. o Rock Smashing no Strength boulders, and once the boulders for strength if you had to move them, were PERMA moved. That's awesome.

I liked the fact it was Unova Pokemon only. Some Pokemon I thought I wasn't going to use I did anyway. [I always wanted a Galvantula though IMO]

One of the better improvements Game Freak has made in recent times if you ask me.

As a few above have said, No Geodude and Zubat in caves was lovely.

I agree about liking it but even though they don't have Geodude and Zubat in caves. They now have Roggenrolas and Woobats.

Cave Pokemon were still annoying xD But I do think this was a good idea. It forced people to use the new Pokemon and therefore start liking them/becoming more attached to them. I always try to only use Pokemon from the region I'm playing in anyway because I feel like it gets boring if I just use my same few favourites in every game.

THIS THIS THIS!!!!!
Pretty much the only abilities you use on a daily basis is Fly and Surf. This left so much more time for movesets to be fully utilized!

^The lack of older generation pokemon through the main storyline allowed me to grow a new bond with this pokemon and thus make me like them more than I would have.
I personally believe this is the reason why I have a small love for Gen IV pokemon (i chose to stick with mostly Gen IV pokemon) and with Gen III I hardly remember any of them because I stuck with Gen I and II mons.

If you don't let them grow on you, you won't have an appreciation for their abilities!

I like it a lot. I usually use like 4 new pokes and 2 old standbys. However, now I had to use 6 new ones, and it made me like them much more

I absolutely loved the idea. This makes it much easier to get accustomed to the new pokemon without having to complain about the same old Zubat and Geodude (not a big fan of Roggenrola or Woobat, but I can still tolerate them). I just wish they made this idea sooner than later.

Well, I was glad the Zubat were gone.

Until after the main storyline.

The only Pokemon I missed were Ditto and Eevee XD
