This is a pretty good idea. Merging multiple boards for the same game would be a programming challenge for Devin to make sure there are still separate products listed in the database (one for each version of the game) while also making sure each version of the game points to just one board (a single merged board). This would apply for games that have multiple versions such as the Pokemon games and games that exist on multiple systems (multiplatform games).

The same thing may even happen to the current Pokémon board on the Switch if the administrator forgets it exists when the gen 8 games are announced (I have a feeling the only reason it wasn't renamed "Let's Go Pikachu" was because the administrator forgot the board existed).


Well, at least the topics from the original Pokemon Switch board weren't lost forever, as they were moved to the Pokemon Shield board.

Look at this, another Pokemon game, another split board for no reason when we know the games are going to have 98% of the same content. The only differences are what Pokemon are in what region, and maybe a few fights, which could easily be explained with a raindrop of context.

Please search through this board before posting. This has been shot down endless numbers of times.

#20 is from the Admin himself


It’s somewhat telling that that topic was shot down and locked within three days. This one has been up for more than four months.

And someone else already pointed out that the previous thread was before flairs were a thing.

And yet, the fact that the new pokemon boards are split indicates that this is irrelevant.
Don't try to think we can understand each other. For some reason, people think that they can do that. Remember that they can't. Never completely. Never enough.

No one, I just find it funny that people want to sit here and debate this when there's probably a decades+ worth of similar topics across multiple admins stating they have no intention of changing this.

To be fair, there's lots of times where the situation changes and something finally does happen. For example, most recently the archive rate was finally changed after many attempts to convince the administration to change it in the past.

I don't think this type of thing really matters, and while I do like the idea ig it's just not worth the time/effort that would have to be put in place. if it were an easy task I would sign though

Flairs can be used to label which console version. Also not every platform board is active so you may not have much choice but to post in another board.
