    I do like the sos system, however it feels like they could have done something to streamline it a little better. I also wish that some species would have been a little easier to encounter and that all sos Pokémon could have their hidden abilities.

    It’s nice and all but it gets irritating. I think that they should add the ability to choose which pokemonti throw out first, and I don’t mean the first Pokémon in your sort, let’s say that you run into a onix and you have a level 5 charmander, instead of it being first in your party and having to switch to your water type, you could just choose it throw the water type first without having to put it in the front of your party. It’d just be way nicer and convent to have this feature rather then havingilwd Pokémon call the boiz for back up.

    It is good but I think it still needs some changes.
    For example: Let us aim with our pokeballs. I mean seriously. This happens in XY and ORAS. Encountering more than one shiny in a hoard battle. It is a pain to train and shiny hunt during a SOS battle

    While I like the SOS system, it can be frustrating at times. I usually don't want them to call for help unless I'm shiny hunting or something.

    I thought it was a good system for shiny hunters, but I personally didn't use it because it got really annoying when they were ganging up on my Pokémon.
    It did help when I needed to train using the Chansey chains.

    Was a little tiresome when I just wanted to get through a fight without it SOSing extra Pokémon. When I'm SOSing for shinies, it's more annoying when they don't call in more mons and I have to wait another turn haha. Overall I like the feature -- much bigger chance to get a shiny, which as a collector makes me happy!

    I liked the idea of it for the first couple routes, and then it got tiresome when you just wanted to move on through a little patch of grass and instead you run into 3 Pokémon all SOSing. It was a cool concept, but I think there should be a way or an item that prevents SOSing for those who are speed running or just want to move through a route. Perhaps an item you can turn on and off like a sound diffuser to prevent calls- on and off in your bag like the EXP share. Another option could be like a repel system with levels of sprays.

    I like it, is a good way to get breeding stock if you want to get into breeding since the mons can easily get up to 4 perfect IVs. I also enjoy the occasional shiny hunt even if I can be SOS'ing for quite awhile before I get a shiny if I get a shiny.
