Gamefreak overly neglected a main series Pokémon game...for a game they don't even intend to sell for half the price of Sword and Shield. I mean, I'm not saying the game still couldn't essentially be an 'Earthbound 4'...but that price tag isn't inspiring much confidence from me. And Sword and Shield suffered so much for this...ugh.

Small teams can still make amazing games, worth buying for $60. I don't see your point.

The point being that a small team is a small team so kinda of hard to claim they neglected the Pokemon games?

They did though...they halved their development team, and as a result, they couldn't program every Pokémon into a main series game. If that's not neglect, IDK what is. The responsible thing to do in this situation would be to hire more programmers, or delay the game, and not release it in this sorry state.

How about we claim they neglected the Pokemon games, but DON'T blame it on Little Town Hero? Because, let's face it, GF was going to do this even if they weren't working on a second game.
Blessed be the wicked,
for at least they're managing to have some fun.

So where is your proof they halved the team?

The two games were obviously in development at the same time, and hence, at least a portion of their workforce wasn't dedicated to Pokémon at this time. I believe they could have implemented the full Dex if they didn't split development.

Half, 3/4, the point still stands regardless. They still made two (technically three?) games at once.
