You all sound like Baha alts. You are all the worst type of fan, who buy whatever product the company sells you regardless of the obvious problems.
Your mantra is "never criticize product, buy and consume future products."

There is no defense for Dexit, no matter how much you try to justify the unjustifiable. You call me a troll, but the real trolls are you people.
I recognize that Dexit is a problem. I understand why people are angry and I sympathize. But I personally never engaged much with the National Dex so it’s exclusion isn’t a major problem to me. It’s the same for many other people. There are many ways to engage with a Pokémon game, and not all of them involve having every Pokémon be available.

I’ll say it again and I’ll keep repeating it: You are free to not buy the game if you don’t like it, but you don’t get to tell us what we can or cannot do. And the fact that you openly admit to wanting to manipulate people into not buying this game just because you don’t like it makes you a troll, no ifs ands or buts.
You can't fool me, 'cause I'm a moron!

I’ll gladly take Sirfetch’d over every Pokémon that was cut.

I've got an even better one. "If you care about Pokémon, actually care, you'll refuse to buy this trash, whether it was pre-owned or not, or any future games that pull this same garbage, until they do the job right."

A great deal of thought regarding how much they can cheap out without destroying the fanbase outright, you mean. They could've put all the Pokémon in and still made a slightly-less-obscene profit, don't kid yourself.


So when does the arguments and points in support of this claim come in? Or am I just supposed to take ur word for it.

I can respect everyone has the right to form their own opinion. But automatically respecting what those opinions are? Pass.


Hold up. I actually agree here.

I got a title, " if you really care about Pokémon, you should ask your peers in this community of what they value in the franchise and respect their decision to buy it or not and not shame them."

Fine, then I'll fully admit that I find you shrill and obnoxious. Go cry somewhere else.
Patience.

Sheesh. You all getting up in arms about someone trying to influence people to get them to do what they want, as if that isn't a part of regular, everyday society and you all have never done anything of the sort.

We influence and are influenced by the world around us all the time, whether you notice it or not. And it's not like trying to get people to not buy this game in the hopes it triggers a positive change in future games is malicious or anything.

Y'all need to chill out.

You don't understand what manipulation means. Manipulation means that you try to coerce people in sneaky fashion to get what you want. I am not manipulating anyone, I have been open about my belief that we need to shame people who support shoddy practices by Gamefreak because we know scientifically that shaming practices work. It's part of social interaction to get people to fall in line lest they become shamed by the wider community.
The difference between manipulators and I is that I am being open about my intentions: buy this game, and you will be supporting terrible practices, which you defend so much that calling you a shill is an accurate description.
You are trying to shame me for trying to shame you, by calling me a troll, so I would either shut up or fall in line with your side. If I used your flawed logic, I would have to call that manipulation.
