According to the hypocrites it's an outrage for Pokemon to cut monsters, but if they boycott Pokemon in favor of another franchise guess what? It'll be a franchise that cuts monsters.
How many other monster games charge you to transfer ?

Any why do you think pokemon became the undisputed king of them?

It's because they marketed the monsters and constant companions... "friends"(or some variation) they often call them, that you can keep from game to game

(I guarantee you pokemon wouldn't be a third as popular today if it worked like all the other monster trainers, and made you ditch them each new game)

And now GF/Masuda acts all shocked because fans bought into that, and act accordingly when their "friends" are wronged

Pokemon got popular before the idea of transferring or a second generation was a thing.
What did spark Pokemon's popularity was trading.

So did yugioh, digimon, yokai watch, even monster rancher got big in my area for a time

But none had the true staying power of pokemon, because none had the true sense of collection and progress across the whole series.

The next game will tell all. Dexit is going to be common knowledge by the time gen 9 rolls around.

Recall that Let's Go had less than a quarter the Pokemon than XY, yet sold more copies than USUM. (the biggest dex yet)
