A largely popular aspect of Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver was the ability to let your Pokémon walk behind you. Since then, fans have requested the return of this feature. Unfortunately, Game Freak has not talked about bringing the follower Pokémon back, but new data discovered in Pokémon Sun and Moon may suggest that the company thought of it making a return. KazoWAR on Twitter found that each creature in the game has a low-polygon count model with walking and running animations. This seems to suggest it’s possible that we may see this feature return in either an update or the potential upcoming Pokémon Stars game.
What do you guys think? Would you like to see the return of this highly requested feature? Let us know in the comments below!

All the Pokemon have low polygon models and walking animations? hmm…
