Hmm sounds counter to the message of the game "love" your pokemon if u just dump em for next on3

isn't that what ash does every season?

"i love you pidgeot i'll come back to you" 20 years later "pidgeot who?"

I dunno I dont watch the anime, but playing the games it seemed to be a pretty strong message.

Sides I thought we didnt like Ash, why would you want to emulate him?

There is no real negative "message" in trying to make new friends, if you wanna take that route. Would you leave the player of the past game empty-handed by forever depriving them of their precious team? That reasoning kind of both goes ways.

Really, just because a Pokémon stays in a past game doesn't mean that it stops being "your friend" and that you can't play with it again.

@CarefreeDude , can you give us an update on your cousin's progress? How far has he gotten into the game now? Have his thoughts changed at all the further in he got? Does he have any plans to complete the Pokedex?

(Sorry if this is a lot of questions/seems a little invasive. This is the first thread in a long while that hasn't made me roll my eyes so hard i can see the inside of my skull, and I'd like more of that.)

Well the past player character is "me" and so I'm not really hurting myself or loving myself less by transferring them forward. I mean there arent 8 different mes accross all gens....Just making sure the mon gets the love and attention it deserves.

Yeah did he nickname his mon? If so what? Which fossil he pick? You know what natures they are? Move sets levels?

See, I don't necessarily see it that way, and so do others: it's more of a "personal re-living" of that character's story.

Either way, it's pretty much semantics: the main point is that, while you're absolutely free to get attached to specific mons, you're not doing them a disservice for not moving them forward in every game, and transferring all of them forward runs the risk of not leaving room for the stuff in the new game; which is part of why the transfer system is either limited or comes out months after the game itself does.

Again, though, my point here isn't to say that you're wrong for transferring them: I was just pointing out how that "friends" perspective technically is also valid the other way around, if less so for people who really identify themselves with each MC, and that the desire to move everything forward isn't expressed by everyone.
