So keep up the message of being petty and upholding some imaginary standard that no one can define?

For people with no standards, our real standards seem imaginary.

"Masuda was heartless enough to remove a majority of pokémon, which are beloved by fans young and old across the world, and even made an assholish Twitter response to a Bayleef fan on Twitter. Knowing Bayleef is gone."

Wait, what?

Maybe that was around the same time people was advocating for him to get raped.

Launch events are obviously meant to be promotional.

If there is a likely chance they might get negative publicity out of it they just won't go through with it.

Blizzard cancelled their Switch Overwatch launch event for the same reason.

Sword and Shield is the gift that keeps on giving, isn't it.
Any contact with the chamber floor will result in an 'unsatisfactory' mark on your official testing record followed by death. Good luck!

I highly doubt they are canceling it because of the backlash. What, are they afraid someone is going to commit an act of terrorism over the f***ing Dexit of all things?!

Operational reasons is one of the vaguest explanations you could ever give for something, it essentially means "stuff happening at the place." It could range from technical difficulties to someone getting sick to worries about a natural disaster, anything really. I don't think people should jump on "vitriol on the internet" as the offender here.

It's not unheard of.

Blizzard cancelled the Overwatch launch event at Nintendo World this past month due to a concern that protestors may show up and illegally protest in a city that is very, very strict on how, and where, you protest, bringing even worst of an image to them if they had to have police step in and escort them off the premise (it's also possible Nintendo didn't want their image tarnished either by protestors as well).

If, and it's still a big if, the rumors of Game Freak's morale being low, it's very possible they didn't want to have a launch event with the potential of having people there criticizing them vocally and wrecking their morale even further, or harassing people that are buying the game.
Each person might see a rose with a different shade of red, but the fact that we can all agree on is beauty -- that is a miracle.

Dude, the KyoAni fire ring a bell? Some nutjob set an animation studio on fire and killed alot of people because it was mostly all women working there and he couldn't handle THAT. These types of jerks are everywhere sadly.
I thought it was a different reason entirely,not because they were woman but because of plagiarism.

It was because of “said” plagiarism. Not sure where he got because all women were working there.
