No Pokemon are behind a paywall

If you wondertrade enough, you'll get multiples of every new legendary. Just like you did every past gen.

I have a lot of issues with these awful games, but pokemon availability through DLC is not one of them
Who are you and what have you done with the real @Darklit_Minuet ?? lol

Clearly you never played any EA games.

If EA made pokemon:
-You'd only have access up to the 3rd gym. The rest of the game is locked behind dlc.
-Online features require a special EA only subscription ontop of nintendo online
-Every catchable pokemon is locked inside lootboxes that take 10 hours to grind, or cost 4$ a piece
-Wild area locked behind paywall
-Zacian / Zamazenta / Eternatus can only be caught in the 100$ deluxe edition
Anyone who defends microctransactions in a 60$, game needs a hard punch to the face. Keep that stuff to free to play games.

I got lured into madden ultimate team for the first time this year. If EA ran pokemon

1.)New game each year
2.)would not be able to use Pokémon from previous years
3.) Pokémon would be slowly released throughout year encouraging micotransaction on regular basis
4.) most popular one would be Limited time releases and ridiculously hard to draw

Isn't all game content behind a paywall of some kind?

Not really...I would rather pay for a dlc with a bunch of new features than buy a “new game” for twice the money and not have everything be new

They haven’t implement gambling mechanics into a mainline game yet, so no. They also haven’t been voted the worst business for several years in a row.

Time to play devil's advocate, that means at the very least one person has to buy the DLC for these new Pokemon in order for them to be in the wonder trade circulation.

I mean, pokemon has been this way fkr years. Only thing thats changed is now insted of a 3ed game were getting DLC. I dont really like it but pokemon was a thing that was too good to be true forever. Even then it's still not as bad as doomsday crises are making it out to be. I'll take this over them turning into a lootbox sh**show like EA woukd 100% do.
