Boy... I would love to see these games selling poorly, but... They will probably still make a ton of money out of them... Oh well

I'm one of them. Skipping it. At least Luigi's Mansion will hold me over for a while.

It’s going to hurt sales, but not enough to make a difference.

I’ve seen hundreds of post about people not buying it, buying used, or emulating the games.

But Pokémon is a 10 - 20m seller sometimes more, so even if nearly 50% of their original base doesn’t buy it, it’s still selling over 10m copies as new fans come to the franchise every generation.

I think regardless of sales the damage has been done and GameFreak hopefully realizes they have to come with their AAA game with this franchise going forward.

They’ve seen the backlash and commented on it, and they realized fans are angry.

I'm skipping until they do a proper Pokemon game on the console instead of something that feels like a lazy 3DS port

I’m hoping for ultra sun moon low levels nearly half compared to previous but can’t see it myself either ;(

Pokemon is one of the worst series in terms of effort. An indie studio with 2 people and a shoestring budget can create a masterpiece like Hotline Miami. All the money in the world can't change the fact that this is the same ad nauseum formula for kids that has no challenge to complete.

You want a great knock off fan made Pokemon game. Go look for Pokemon Uranium. Similar style to the old games, with all different monsters and characters.

Obviously they will be available someday. Most likely when they release two new games for them.

I’m hoping for that, and the ability to transfer Pokemon from these games to those hypothetical future games, but it seems like a fool’s hope at this point. I think I even read an article saying there are currently no plans to add the complete Pokédex to future titles either.

Will they be called Pokemon Helm and Codpiece?

I’m not adding any care for this title then
