I love the idea of having an Auxiliary as a partner, they're just not very good. What I'd like to see is them having more things to do. Like maybe let them wander around your room, maybe interact with furniture on their own or even play the interactive games like darts or waddle race. How about do reaction emotes to yours? Auxiliary-specific story quests? Or even some offline mini-game you can play on mobile? *thinks of pokewalker. I'm even ok with it not affecting the main PSO2 saves.
