Remember, every single #ThankyouGamefreak is an admission that SaS are fundamentally underwhelming and in need of defense.

That's honestly the way I'm seeing this and it's pretty sad. Not to mention that they are pretty much going to use this as a way of doing even more questionable decisions with their games, and a lot the fans here will eat it up even when the Japanese themselves don't like it like how many of them also didn't like dexit.

Honestly, though I'm sure execs are excited that the fan community is willing to police itself to remove criticism, they would've never done this if they cared about fan response. It's the same as Bethesda half-heartedly apologizing for 76 and then doubling down with even more egregious monetization. If the criticism were louder than the blind defense, GF may have made a sentimental "we'll do better next time" statement, but they would just keep powering on ahead as long as profits were turned.

It's still the top trending topic for me. Not sure if it's the same for everyone else.

A lot of the tweets are just bots spamming the top trends.

It's one of the topics, but it's not trending.

Meh. I don't really ca- actually, it IS kind of weird with how many are actually thanking them for AND that they only did it during this time.

They could have done this "movement" any time, but they choose to do it now when times are dark. To me, it just shows that people are only grateful when something comes under fire.

Exactly.

That's just how humans work. Almost no one goes about their day being openly thankful for things that they've had for so long that they are mundane. People choose to be vocal when it serves a purpose. BBND did it because they wanted to be heard and I find nothing wrong or unusual with TYGF doing it with the same objective.
My psychiatrist told me I was crazy and I said I want a second opinion. He said okay, you're ugly too.

It's called a fake PR stunt, it didn't even work. More wasted money for Game Freak they could have spent developing the game.

Except the people who are most invested in TYGF maintain that 1. the amount of legitimate criticism is actually much smaller than it really is and 2. that there isn't anything wrong with SaS to the point that it needs defending.

Causing this topic to trend implies they believe the opposite of what some of the most ardent defenders have said.

It's actually kinda ironic that many of the Pokemon they're featuring in their Tweets are absent in the game.


How is it ironic? Is liking a cut Poke and understanding why they were cut not possible or something?

I've seen mountains and mountains of defense and a large amount of the full game, like everyone here, and I still fundamentally don't understand why they were cut.
