While I don't see it likely, the Pokemon following your character could still return in Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. The only two shots of the overworld in the trailer were the trainer at the very beginning of the game and a shot that looks to take place before you get your first Pokemon.

Again though, I don't really see it returning in the games.

Well, why not? I mean, if the data mining showed us walking and running 'mons they could be there for us in US/UM, also because in the trailer there's a Wingull which seems to follow the trainer running! :la::la:

Pokémon following around ? Seems like Heart Gold and soul silver to me

Yes exactly!

If you were not aware, models of every single Pokemon both walking and running were found in Pokemon Sun and Moon, leading people to believe that Pokemon walking (and running) behind you was going to return but was scraped, at least for Sun and Moon, just like how Pokemon followed you in HGSS!

But are they really going to add that ?

That's the question. Many fans have been clamoring to see the feature return, but some also thought it would be difficult to implement because you would need animations of every single Pokemon walking, but with these animations, it definitely is possible now. Who knows really? I would love to see it, but we'll just have to see if it ends up happening.

I feel like it's pretty likely, considering all of the models are created and simply need to be implemented. To my knowledge, the overworld never really suffered from lag in Sun and Moon, so I don't think adding those models would do much harm to the frame rate.

It's possible. I mean I would be very happy to see it happen, but we have seen some major unused assets in past games, but I think if this went unused it would probably be the most major.

That's true, but I don't particularly see why GameFreak would leave these assets out, barring some technical difficulties. I mean, there's a lot of effort that has to go into fluidly animating 800+ unique models (twice for both the walk and run animations). Here's hoping these models were simply unused because they did plan on implementing them as a bigger selling point for US/UM.
