First, are proper nouns going to be capitalized or not?
Second, are we going for more of an R/S/E style or D/P/Pt? The second would be a tad harder to code. We don't have to limit ourselves to 386 pokemon if we go with a gen 3 look, though... just saying that it might be more prudent to sacrifice "advance-ness" in favor of speed. It was probably noted that we'd be doing Generation 2 style, but then we'd have to devamp hundreds of sprites to conform to that.
I'm asking these because these will eventually be the engine defaults.
