*clears throat* This essentially explains itself, and is pretty simple, but for some back ground, Llorona and I were talking about how it would be nice to have some sort of indicator in the Safari Zone that lets you know when one of the legendaries (Tornadus, Thunudurus and Landorus) are actually present in your Zone.

This would save people from wasting time playing the game, not being able to catch anything [if they were shiny chaining], and not knowing if what they're looking for is actually there or not. Just like, using the rock's sprites and having them be off to the side of the Zone screen to indicate the presence of the Pokemon.

Additionally, if a person is using the "slow down" method while chaining, the rock icons have a chance to appear during a Zone run if one of the 3 Legendaries spawns in later.

Example:



NEW revised idea based on user comments:

A list of all Pokemon currently present in your zone. Updates in real time, if and when a Pokemon is caught or is spawned in.
A Pokemon you're shiny chaining will appear with a • next to its icon.

Support! I think this would make things a lot easier, and since personally the rocks are the only apeal for me from the Safari Zone, I think it would be a great addition.

Not only Legendary, but what if there was a way to kinda bookmark a pokemon / 2-3 pokemons and if they appeared in the next safari hunt you play, youd directly know its there instead of waiting... this will help even those who arent hunting legends but are hunting other mons, expecially vivillons... whats your opinion

@C0FFee - I thought about that as well but I wasn't 100% sure on how one would go about labeling the rest of the Pokemon in the zone. I do like the idea of a "book mark" sort of deal where you can pick the Pokemon and have it save, but what would be used an icon indicator for the Vivillon and other Pokemon? ^^

Maybe use the smaller icon sprites shown when you look at the storage box? It would show what pokemon is there without it taking up space.

Otherwise support both ideas of bookmarking pokemon or showing when a Legendary is there.

Everything is going to be okay

Okay, so y'all would want something like this? :>


Box off to the side, mini sprites of each Pokemon present in the zone, would add in more if different Pokemon spawns in and would show the shiny star next to any shinies?

I think the shiny star should indicate the pokémon you're chaining, not shinies themselves.

Oooo okay if we went that route I feel that maybe it would just be a circle ○ next to the pokemon then :) I would get confused if there was the shiny star and it not actually being a shiny^^ but singling out the Pokemon you're chaining is a good idea!

it would be handy however i know spawns change and spawns also can be manipulated by slowing stuff down to increase spawns to playing regardless would help but if your a person like me who throws 15 balls to quit within first min it would defonatly help.. the thing i would loveeeeeeee to see is the removal of shift being held down...

If shift could be turnt to a toggle it would greatly improve things as holding down shift while going faster has caused issues with my little finger

but overall i support this as will allow people to multi task more while doing it

@Klepto - right! and that's why the list would update "in real time" meaning; as soon as a Pokemon is added to the pool by spawning in, it would be added to the list, and vice versa: as soon as a Pokemon is caught and taken away from the pool, it will get taken off the list at the same time. ^^

Well, It had the word game in it. AN AMAZING SUGGESTION! I wasted something like 50k PD to find a thundurus...This suggestion would at least help me to know if the thundurus is there or no!

I think that an icon to show that a legendary appeared in the safari would be really helpful
I don't know what to put in this so I am just going to put a few things that I like to do.
1. I like to read and play games
2. I like to play sports
3. I like to watch anime{if you guys have any suggestions on what to watch please let me know)
4. I love animals

100% support because it would make trying to find the legendaries there less tedious and frustrating

Yes, definitely! They're so rare if you're not chaining them and even then you can have dry spells, I'd just like to know if one's floating around out there somewhere.~
