    Long post, bear with me. Skyblock has quickly become my favorite part of Pokefind, I love building things and I love building things with Pokemon helping me even more. But lets be real here. Once you have a couple of Rhyhorns going and a Charizard smelting everything for you then you're pretty much set for the rest of your game-play as far as money goes. All that's left after that is trying to become the top island or building, the rest of the Pokemon more or less become useless as you can just buy anything you'd get from them from the store.

    I'd like to see some more depth added to the Pokemon, abilities, skills, powers, whatever you want to call them. It would pretty much be an overhaul of how they all work(plus a bunch of new ones!)

    My thought on this is fairly simple. The core function of the Pokemon would remain unchanged, A Geodude would still produce ores and get better as it evolves. What would be added to it would be the ability to purchase further upgrades to enhance him. An increase in placing speed, increased chance of a certain ore spawning, etc. These would all obviously have level caps in place to prevent them from being too overpowered and the caps could be increased when you evolve them. Pokemon will always inherit any abilities they had prior to evolving.

    Not only would this add a lot more usability to the Pokemon but it would also let you in a sense customize them to how you want to use them. It would also bring a nice way to spend the ridiculous amounts of money some of us have accumulated.

    Below are some of the things I've come up with, I'd love to hear thoughts on them or on this post in general.
    *Note* Speed increases would be on top of whatever increase evolving already adds
    *Note* Obviously all of these numbers are just what I came up with in my head, they might not be very balanced

    Glad you like it. :) The Pokemon in Skyblock feel too much like machines to me the way they currently are, I feel like this would make them feel more like Pokemon trying to help you out.
