So my suggestion is that the game shows you which patches you checked already (for example by putting a red cross over those patches). Because I usually remember the last one I checked but not the previous ones and it gets hard when you get to the last 9 patches and you're not sure which ones you already checked and you have to wait 1 hour before you can check again.

Even though many people may like it, I don't. Tall Grass ever since the update is now a game of memory and strategy, if you've missed one you have to start making diaries/start remembering more.

Quote from Riako
So with a smart strategy, you can easily find even rarer eggs - you just have to remember where you've searched before!

Riako changed tall grass this way so its easier, I find no point in changing it. And also, if you're are unable to reclick it you'll have to start remembering things like "its far away!" and most people drawing a tall grass map and using time to update it is enough. Its way easier now because its balanced by memory just like concentration, I would really dislike if it was harder just because people kept forgetting.

People often think the PH sprites are bland. Do they shade? Well, yes they do. You'll be surprised how much care is taken for these sprites.

yeah, there is a simple method, i use MS Paint for it (i'am so oldschool yay). I take a screen of the grass and simply cross out the patches i already visited in Paint x D. After finding the egg i move my screen to the recycle bin and make a new one. its even easier, if you mark the visited patches on screen with vc (very close) nfa (not far away) or fa (far away).

I reallyike this idea especially with rarer pokemon where it takes like 30 mins between each search there's no way I can remember that so marking where we've already searched would be really good and save a lot of frustration and time

I totally support it, but just a very little differently.
It would say that the spot that had been searched was it "far away" or "close" to the egg, as it says when you click at it.

i think that might be too easy since the update already made it a lot more easy.

i personally use a method similiar to the one by Oktopi, but in my case, i use excel (just make a little area for the tall grass, where each cell is a bush and put "x" everywhere where the egg can still be after searching a spot)

what i personally would prefer to make it "easier" might be an option to put one party-member/egg into storage when you find an egg while having a full party (putting pokes/eggs out and in when doing tall grass is kinda annoying).
