No, still hyped. 24 40.68%
 
Yes, hype gone, not buying. 8 13.56%
 
Eh, I don't like this but will wait and see. 10 16.95%
 
Eh, I hate this, but will get it anyway. 13 22.03%
 
Wasn't getting it from the start. 4 6.78%
 
Total:59

That alone would already subtracts a solid 2 points out of 10 from my rating. And another -2 if Plusle isn't in there.

A lot of the Pokémon we'll be getting will be the same ones they always put in, and the same ones will be forgotten again.

Pokemon is dead.



Lol.

Let's see if the vocal fans can force GF to change this policy like Ninten fans forced Nintendo's hand to include Friends matchmaking in SMM2.

People act like GF is happy with doing this. Did you not see Masuda during the treehouse? He was clearly very upset about it. They would have to delay the games to have every pokemon in there, and that isn't possible. I wonder what the problem is. Maybe animations?

If they really gave Pokemon to a secondary team, to focus instead on other games like Town, they maybe just don't have enough people on it to finish the game on time. 



I gave up on completing the Pokedex ages ago, would rather have them focus on only new Pokemon from now on, is part of the reason why I loved the main game of Black/White so much.



To be honest it doesn't bother me, don't play and have never played the game to "catch them all" but I can understand why those that do would be upset.

And as much as I loved mega evolutions, there were a few pokes that shouldnt have got one and just got regular evolutions instead (Pinsir, Mawile etc.) and I never really cared for z-moves.

Also as people have mentioned, B&Ws lack of being able to catch them all, didn't remove my enjoyment of those games.
