Imagine Gen 7 pulls a Gen 3 on us and you can't transfer any Pokemon from the previous generations on to your game.
Gamefreak's official excuse is that they're rebooting the series in order to create a balanced game. And in order to do this, they'll mess with the movepool, stats and abilities of every Pokemon.
How would you react? Would you be furious at the thought of not being able to transfer your bros over? Would you not care because you'd probably be able to inject them in anyway? Would you like the promise of a semi-balanced meta?
Still my second favorite, yes.
I never liked transferring my mons up, especially since I still play the older games.
Maybe if I knew beforehand the my battery would die out, I would've been more concerned, but what's done is done.
there is no such thing as "bros"
people would be mad bec ause you would have to hack your mons again
honestly, not transfering mons is such a cool and fresh concept, like pre-pokebank xy, shit was fucking beautiful, nothing will ever compare to the feeling of pure mons, people actually breeded and trained all of their mons because there wasw no such thing as hacking
There is no way they would do this after PokeBank.
The meta will never be balanced as long as 1) it encourages the use of Pokemon that need to be soft reset to be usable or 2) IVs cannot be changed through means other than breeding.
I don't care abandoning my "bros" if it means they'll be actually useful next gen.
The powercreep made 90% of all pokemon completely useless and weak, we have things like Articuno, not allowed in GS UU, being useless in gen 6 NU. I won't even begin talking about the pants on head retarded idea that was making megas stronger than even box legends.
Enough. I want to have fun, and pokemon isn't right now.
I think it would be really cool especially if all 7 generations of Pokemon could be caught in that one game. I can't ever see the competitive meta being balanced though and this seems really unlikely after Pokebank but it does seem like a fun idea.
What? The meta will never be balanced because GF refuses to balance it. All those 580+ BST legends with movepool stretching the horizon are centralizing as hell, the power gap is just too big.
Honestly I'm amazed GF STILL didn't do anything about it, such obvious flaw. If you want to make legends stronger then they have to be one-trick poneys with no almost no moves like gen 1.
Not now, not now that megas exist.
GF also refuses to balance the gen 1 megas for some reason. Mewtwo got shit megas and the bird trio is garbage except Zapdos, who isn't even that good anymore.
If it really did balance the game so that my favorite weakmons would be more fun to use, then it would be a fair deal.
Well, that's pretty much what s whole lotta fags on /vp/ want. No IVs, no EVs, no special attacks through breeding, and most important: Every shitmon should be able to compete with what is todays top OU-Threats, on the basis of "b-but muh bruh!"
