There are a lot of features in FFXI that are ignored 'cause they really don't have any effect on the main experience of leveling up.

But with FFXIV's goal of having many options, there exists the possibility that you could just go through the game as a chocobo breeder or racer, or a monster battler. I think these things are really what will be emphasized with their "many options", not just fishing and crafting.

I figure Square-Enix's approach is not so much "in FFXIV you can do lots of things" but more like FFXIV is the common interface or hub for many games in one.
A crude analogy would be say, in Wii sports, your Mii participates in different games and builds up his score in them. You can choose to focus entirely on boxing, or maybe you just like Tennis.

FFXIV could turn into Pokemon: The MMO! hahah.

I want a Pokemon MMO, but not the one you're describing.

I didn't really describe anything other than Pankration in FFXIV. S-E has surely learned from its failure in FFXI how to go about monster catching and battling.

I think he's thinking more of a 'classic' Colosseum, where you can watch/participate in fights. Personally i wouldnt mind where a player can fight against a monster trained by a player. Certain monsters would then be ranked, as would the players who would participate. Could have Player vs Monster, Monster vs Monster, Player vs Player, each with ranking boards etc etc.

The key is control of the monsters. The currant AI system of pankration blows, but if this could be improved upon, would make a very fun event.

monster catching and fighting began in the Dragon Quest RPG, before pokemon, so fitting it in a fantasy RPG isn't too unusual.

Maybe it'll be related to the chocobo breeder class? (I figure it's safe to say there is guaranteed to be a chocobo related class in FFXIV)

I'm not really sure what you guys are asking for. Are you asking for a completely separate game element to be included into the game?

If I wanted to play cards, I could go play poker online, I wouldn't ask SE to incorporate it into FFXIV?
