As of now, the Buneary in Exbel Woods does provide new players with a small tutorial on the gameplay, but the gameplay tips are restricted to what you can do in a dungeon.
New players who exit the tutorial are instantly teleported to the Crossroads without any sense of direction, which is not a very fluent gameplay flow and confuses a lot of the newer players, leading to them not knowing what to do and having to ask around before starting their PMU journey.
Something that would be both feasible and able to tackle this problem is to lead beginning players to a (new) small starter area/town instead of Crossroads, containing a few NPCs that each explain you the basics of PMU. Things that could be explained here are, for example:
- Where to find your first dungeon
- How to evolve your pokémon
- How kangaskhan and chimecho work
- Opening boxes (xatu)
- Mission system
- (maybe other things i missed, feel free to add your suggestions).
I believe something like this is quite feasible in the short term and will help a lot of the issues new players have when first getting into PMU.
