  3. Would there be as much of an uproar if they announced the Dex thing years go?

People got mad in Gens 3 and 5

They both could still get all Pokémon though one required all gen 3 games to get them all including GameCube while the other had transfer features post game but you needed 2 DSs to do it. But this is kind of a “seen this; different coat of paint” situation

At the end of the day, the issue is time. If they had another year or so, they could probably do it. But because they don't wanna make a filler arc or two for the anime they're shackled to this quick release schedule.

It took bloody YEARS for all Pokemon to trickle through and it wasn't guaranteed they ever would until it finally did happen.

DS games were done dirty. You need the GBA games to get all Pokemon in Gen 4. In Gen 5, you need Gen 4 to help out.

3DS? Only Gen 7 was done dirty. But the National Dex was actually removed in Gen 7, although you were still able to import non-Alola Dex Pokemon.

Gen 6 was done like 1 and 3 were---you can complete the Pokedex in one gen, heavily implying Pokemon Bank was NOT originally intended.

I don't think people would be as upset as they are right now if GF somehow made up for it.

I think even the most diehard of fans knew we wouldn't have all 900+ Pokémon available in every game, but if we still got amazing features to compensate for it, it would all be good.

Instead we get Currydex.

Don’t get me wrong, I agree that it wasn’t easy (somehow I managed to get a full living dex + bankable forms) just stating that it was possible albeit difficult to transfer for those particular gens

We would always be annoyed. There was never a reason to expect the Dex and all of our Pokemon we've paid so f***ing much for over the years in imports and Pokemon Bank to keep would suddenly just vanish like this.

The game legit looks worse than RPG Maker shovelware but they tell us we're gutted of 66%+ of the content from US/UM because they wanted to IMPROVE graphics?
