  3. What if this dex cut thing is a marketing scheme?

Like the games are called sword and shield.
Sword- people attacking GF
Shield- people defending GF

Do you all think this is some mumbo jumbo marketing strategy, brought together by none other than Masuda himself????!!!!!

It is a marketing scheme, but of a different type. It's basically "You can still transfer your Pokémon, you just have to buy all our future games to use them all!"
...I became a Super Robot Wars fangirl without playing the games. Bite me.

I mean, to me it's pretty obviously to drum up more sales of mid-generation games. Doesn't really help that they're making it fairly obvious due to the relative lack of Sinnoh Pokemon compared to others.

The alternative is to buy none of them which sounds like a plan assuming SWSH is lackluster which is still Up in the air until November

IMO they are doing the dex cut so they can make a bunch of money from Pokémon Home. Since from now on no Pokémon game will have all Pokémon species you will have to keep paying for Pokémon Home to keep the Pokémon you cant use there.

The dex cut was not something that was inevitable. This is on purpose.

I mean, it was still inevitable. Just didn’t need to happen this early on. It was definitely going to be an issue eventually, though.

Explain why it was inevitable.

This is such a weird take

The dex wasn't really sustainable at the rate it grew each gen. Dissapointing though it may be to say goodbye so early.
