We all know the future of regional dexes going forward.
60 new Pokémon +
60 new Pokémon +
Pokemon Home + SwSh cutting Pokemon + Game Freak saying for years that they care about our connection with our Pokemon + Masuda saying they knew they'd eventually have to stop supporting every Pokemon all comes together to make one of the scummiest situations I've seen in gaming. I see this as on par with any EA controversy.
Minior is my second favorite mon ever. I even breed a shiny to transfer to Sword. I'm going to cry if I have to leave him behind. :(((Each region will have its own walled-off set of Pokemon. You may have to wait years for certain Pokemon to become playable again.
Hard to believe that there will probably be several Alola Pokemon that don’t even make it to Sword and Shield. If Oranguru and Minior don’t make it I’m going to cry a little bit...
I have no faith in Gamefreak anymore...It's only been a little over a day, it will take time for them to announce they are reversing course on this policy. People just need to keep making noise.
It took what, a few weeks for the MM2 change to be announced? I wouldn't be surprised that if they are going to change this that they make the announcement in like an August or September Direct or something.
He is in SnS
Taking into account Charizard is in, I would say the other gen 1 starters are likely.
If you look at their yearly revenues before and after Pokémon Go release, you'll get why they're doing the things they're doing now.Also, it's insane to me because like, Game Freak has clung HARD to carefully keeping near every facet and little detail in the games up until now. I mean, any other developer would have tidied up any number of weird evolution/pre-evolution methods by now that have required an increasing number of specific items and locations to appear in each game, all for the sake of maintaining that precise continuity... and now they're straight cutting Pokemon. Or maybe this is their solution to that, and they care more about maintaining the continuity than the Pokemon?
As a Britney fan lol we already experienced something similar back in April, I feel like having a deja vu. We started tweeting this #FreeBritney hashtag to stop her (still) ongoing conservatorship and tweets started to disappear if they had that hashtag or similars. On Instagram if you try to comment with it it will automatically be removed.
I love that Britney Spears and Pokémon for some reason always manage to encounter each other. I wonder if SwSh is gonna be delayed and release alongside another Britney album like the other gens lolAs a Britney fan lol we already experienced something similar back in April, I feel like having a deja vu.

But we gotta keep fighting.
This will probably be the highest gen 1 hate will get, and for good reason. Of all 8 generations you can bet your sweet ass Gen 1 will have the biggest share of Pokemon in this game, and with this dumb ass decision that means all the people who favor other generations are kinda getting shit on.
It's just crazy how absolutely unappealing they've suddenly made Pokemon Home.Whats super fucked up about Pokemon Home is its a one way trip for ALL supported games except SwSh. You transfer your Pokemon from the past games, and the majority of them are stuck there until they release the next game and limit what you can transfer to that game. In no way is this a good idea of acceptable.
I mean, I don't hate Gen 1, but I DO hate the ridiculous degree of push it gets above everything else, because I love all Pokemon. And the fact that we're obviously going to get more of them here than anything else, especially when they JUST pulled Let's Go with those BS Pokemon restrictions, definitely annoys me, when tons of other Pokemon are going to get locked out.
Agree and I've been done with them for a while. This whole transfer fiasco is so stupid it's almost hard to believe it's happening.Not that it's ever gonna happen, but at this point I just wish another studio could take a crack at a mainline game.
I'm just done with gamefreak. They've gotten away with a lot of shit over the years - the removal of features, their asinine disregard for post-game, their constant handholding etc.
I'm glad to see them being hauled over the coals for this though. I doubt they'll care though and the games will still sell millions.
Galar Trainers aren't too smart if the champion's ace is a Charizard. Stealth rocks already puts him at half health, just throw a stone at him and he's down.
I think it's less hatred and more just exasperation. For people who have grown up with Pokemon and have kept up with the new games and generations as they've come out, it's tiring to see the interesting designs of the other 700+ Pokemon get shafted for Charizard and Mewtwo for the umpteenth time.
What people don't realize about this is Pokemon Home will be the only place to store all your Pokemon going forward. We'll never again be able to keep our Pokemon all on one cartridge because compatibility will change with each game. Meaning they all have to be stored in Home. Which will have a price.
I don't think I have ever been this disappointed in a upcoming game. And that comes from someone who played every pokemon go and has played pokemon go for 9070 km in less then one year.What people don't realize about this is Pokemon Home will be the only place to store all your Pokemon going forward. We'll never again be able to keep our Pokemon all on one cartridge because compatibility will change with each game. Meaning they all have to be stored in Home. Which will have a price.
Just wait until they end support for Pokemon Bank and force transfers to Home. Pokemon will either be eternally stuck on the 3DS or stuck in Home (and you'll be paying to keep them there unless you want to lose everything) while you wait to transfer them to a game they're compatible with.
It's all just disgusting and is a slap in the face to fans.
Nice, more Gen 1 pandering and fuck the other gens by removing pokemons.I fully expect all of the Gen 1 pokemon to make the cut, as well as their cross-gen evolutions. Given that the main argument for this change is the work involved with the 3D models and animations, any pokemon that was in Let's Go would supposedly have less work involved with it, plus they wouldn't want to antagonize Switch owners that got into Pokemon with Let's Go.
Leak spoilersThis also makes sense given the rumored Farfetch'd evo.
The current 'Dex standings are as followed if anyone is interested:
Sun and Moon had around 400 you can get in the game. and XY had like 450? So somewhere around there. Considering the reasoning why Pokemon outside of the Galar dex aren't compatible I would bet the number of available Pokemon will be smaller than those numbers even.
