Pokémon that need to be traded to evolve have always been an inconvenience, but they're downright obsolete in the current gaming climate.
It's time for them to stop Creating new pokemon. They should have stopped at 350 or so in my opinion. There are just too many half thought out designs, and the thought of being overwhelmed with too many new rules and types and new trading rules or scenarios made me lose my desire to play pretty much anything released after Ruby/Sapphire or FireRed/LeafGreen.
There's some Pokemon that would make more sense as evolutions. Then there's Pokemon that're so poorly designed that I gotta question if they'd even be missed. If they just limit the amount indefinitely, and focused on trying to make it as balanced as they could would people even be mad?
Asking for them to stop making new Pokémon is as absurd as requesting new monsters in Yugioh, Digimon, Yokai Watch, & Shin Megami Tensei
I'm perfectly cool with them creating new Pokemon. What's less cool, at least to me, is there seems to be a periodic quota of new Pokemon as new "gens" are scheduled at regular intervals that seem to get more and more frequent as time goes on. Creative burnout was probably inevitable. There are some modern ones I really like, but others clearly exist because they need to fill up slots, such as three samey-looking monkeys of three different elements, or a literal set of keys. While I'm hesitant to say GF should stop creating new Pokemon indefinitely, I do think it's a good idea for them to take at least a bit of a break. I mean, it can't be easy having to come up with new creatures every few years that are different enough from the existing ones while trying to maintain some semblance of thought and creativity. Even the most creative people need a break.
It's more of an inconvenience when the online feature of Sw&Sh are so poorly implemented, couple that with the console having no way of messaging other players.
