So now that Gamefreak is adding 200 pokemon to Sw/Sh's roster I'm pretty sure this largely invalidates most if not all of the excuses given for why Dexit needed to be a thing from both Gamefreak and this board alike. I can't help but wonder what all of the pro-Dexit Gamefreak-shill defender folk on this board are saying these days now that Sw/Sh's roster is nearly doubling from what it was on launch. Wasn't it true that this would be impossible to balance? Wasn't it true that this would be too intimidating for newcomers?

It's 200 not 300

200

Ah, I thought I'd read that 200 were part of the expansions with 100 extra being a free DLC. Regardless, the post still stands.

Everyone is super happy.

It's all been peaceful and positive, as you would expect on gamefaqs.

Honestly, the take I had on this was that Game Freak didn't have enough time or resources to add in all of the Pokémon. With them being given an extra year to work on the game along with the profits from the game's initial sales, that idea hasn't really been invalidated when they're only adding in 200 Pokémon since the math checks out. Of three years spent in development for Sword and Shield, one year was spent on conceptual work while two were spent on making the game. In those two years, they only put in 400 Pokémon (80 of which are new, so 320 old Pokémon), 160 old Pokémon for each year. In this extra year they are spending to add in more Pokémon, they are also only adding in 200+ old Pokémon while having less new Pokémon to work on. It makes sense to me.
My psychiatrist told me I was crazy and I said I want a second opinion. He said okay, you're ugly too.

I’ll be satisfied when they add the remaining Pokemon back in.

While it may be true that Gamefreak simply didn't have the time to add in more pokemon, this isn't a reason that was given by Gamefreak and it isn't a reason that was vomited from the mouths of shills for so long.

Had Gamefreak just been honest that they didn't have time to include every pokemon or that they had developmental roadblocks there would have been a lot less angry people, in fact people would have applauded them for their honesty. Instead we get excuses and hypocrisy.

Every now and then you still see some fools try to argue that the pokemon aren't going to be free and you have to pay.

You know, something you've always had to do.

Well that's certainly not true, if they said they didn't have the time people would have shifted to telling them to delay the game.
