  1. Pokemon will sell more copies when pokemon home and wonder trade are updated. Cynthia will stop dominating me then.

  2. I thought people were complaining that Diamond and Pearl didnt look like Pikachu and Eevee. Just like people were complaining about Sword and Shield and yet still made that series the best selling Pokemon games. Yet complain”oh why cant every Pokemon be on Sword and Shield or forced EXP share or easily over leveled on that generation yet still bought it. That’s stupid.
