Yes the hackers did amazing thing and discovered interesting things. However, it doesn't mean we ( as in those who don't have their Switch) will get any of the old Pokémon through and update or DLC. Maybe a mythical or legendary but the overall catalogue is a no.

It is a POLICY. Game Freak said multiple times that they established a POLICY of not making all the old Pokemon return. They not only doubled down, they have tripled downed.

I am just making a reminder that they have discussed with Nintendo and the Pokémon company about this action. This isn't just a "f*** it, I ain't doing s***." Thing. Game Freak went to the Pokémon company and had a meeting.

Not to make anyone mad but I am just letting you know so you won't set your self up in the future.

I think we all realized that from the start Jimmy. I think you're missing the point of it all Timmy. Oh Jonny, why do you not return it to us? The partners that we lost~

You have no idea the depths people will do to set themselves up to fail.

Ummm was this an actual expectation? They have been very clear from the start. Just because you refuse to believe it doesnt change the fact.

They'll add them all back in if we just BELIEVE. Clap your hands if you believe.

So now the in-game metagames will probably always be s***.

It’s all about control and make Pokémon home seem useful.,

the majority don't care about pokemon.

for example, they have fun with Cinderace now.

in next new game, they don't care about Cinderace.

The meta has always sort of been s***. You know those tier lists everyone uses? You know how Landorus shows up on a metric butt ton of teams? Why go through the hassle of 800+ mons when the same twenty have made up the competitive scene for years? Just play the game, it’s delightful.

If they start just not having a Nat. Dex. then this will be the first time I start keeping Pokemon games (I tend to sell them right before the new one drops and transfer my mons to bank).

Still hoping the backlash was strong enough to have it return though. Now that I've completed the game and doin WA, I wish all/most pokemon were catchable. I could spend hours there just battling and catching mons.

Regardless I doubt it, but I still think its a bad move haha, but whatever. Just sucks to finally get a console (mainline) Pokemon and we cant use them all.
