Not enough sales, I would imagine.

Same reason Ranger and Conquest havent seen anything in years. Some Pokefans are just too concerned about whats a "real" pokemon game or not. Its the same reason people are hoping Lets Go will fail. Some people just want to watch the world burn.

It really is a shame. I loved all three Pokémon Pinball titles.

not at all the same thing.
the people who are worried about LetsGo are worried about it overtaking the main series because it is too similar.

No Pokemon spinoff lasts for long.

Hell, I'm pretty sure the Mystery Dungeon series are now done. Seeing as Gen 7 didn't get an entry even though every generation before it since Gen 3 got one (even one as lackluster as Gates to Infinity).

Sad but true. And I really think the Ranger series could've done well for the Wii as well- using the Wiimote to draw circles around the Pokémon could've worked nicely. But the Pinball series is always entertaining to me. I still play Pinball Mini on occasion- that and Pokémon Tetris are the two games my Pokémon mini sees the most.
