  1. Yeesh, imagine how good pokemon would be if the makers made only one game instead of two! This splitting of the series stinks of fleecing the customer! I do believe in capitalism, but even I can smell the fraud a mile away! Call me a troll if you wish, but Pokemon would be a better series if gamers had more freedom in picking their pokemon, instead of having to buy two versions of the SAME game just to get them all!

  2. I don’t think the developers do this to be greedy I believe Pokemon has always been about trading and playing with your friends and that’s why they do it like this. Although it sucks for isolated people in rural areas where not many people play such as myself.
