pokemon need a competition so bad....
the quality is just not there... it taste stale for the old players... i dunno how young crowd feel about it.... but it feels like pokemon is not a strong market to the younger generation?
While competition can encourage one to improve, it isn't necessary. That Pokemon is where it's at now is entirely on them. Plus even if Tem Tem did get as big as Pokemon, as long as Pokemon remains big they still have no reason to change.
Sw/Sh is selling as great as any Pokemon game, doubtless kids make up a big chunk of players. I think they and their parents care more about brand recognition than the quality/value of the product.
