That's really disappointing. All these years we've waited for a full console Pokemon and spent years collecting and building our collections in the PokeBank, and now they're going to cherry pick which Pokemon are available to transfer to Sword & Shield.

I completely understand developing animations for 800+ pokemon is extremely difficult, but it's still disappointing. I'm sure it'll be the best ones included and they left out a lot of the garbage ones. But they also didn't say any kind of number to know how many we can expect supported.

"Well fans, you've begged for years for a full console Pokemon, and now we're giving it to you. Mostly..."

Maybe they should have slowed the amount of new ones being made? Plan a little ahead, decide how many you are willing to support "indefinitely", and cap it there.

Ugh. I was pretty much done with the series after Sun & Moon, but was still holding onto a glimmer of hope the games would recover. Sad watching your favorite games slowly become unrecognizable as years go on😭
