I don't feel ignored - it'd be selfish to think a franchise has to cater to my tastes specifically to be good. I just completely dislike the shift in direction this franchise has had from 2014 onwards. I dislike everything about it, really. Most Pokémon fans didn't mind most of the changes made since then, they're only annoyed at the national dex thing. Me personally, yeah, I'm sad that I can no longer enjoy something I once loved, but I'm getting over it. There are other good similar JRPGs out there - I just played through Persona 5, which was beautiful, and am looking forward to trying out Digimon Cyber Sleuth.
For those who'll keep buying Pokémon stuff... well, oh well. It's a shame people can be milked that easily, but to each their own, really.
Is funny that you mention Persona 5 and milking, because people get milked easily by Atlus with Persona 5 currently.
