DaylightAmy commented on Nintendo Launching Cloud-Based Pokémon Bank S...:

As a long time Nintendo fan and Pokémon player I have to say I don't mind at all that they charge for this - not at all!

The years of enjoyment I've gotten out of all their games for a one-time purchase price each time can't be repayed with $5 a year so I think it's only fair. If they were going up too much I probably wouldn't be happy (or if they started giving large advantages to people for bigger sums) but for something that I think most of us really can afford it only seems fair to pay a little for a not necessary but nice additional feature.

Especially with game piracy going up (which I also understand from both sides really...) I'd rather they charge us a bit here and there for the stuff we really love and want than to see the franchise suffer.

What just absolutely shocks me is that you're all going on and on about inanimate objects and creature design and actually NOBODY here who calls themselves a "Pokéfan" seems at all interested in the fact that two of the defensively most interesting types are finally getting combined. Really guys? Really? Why don't you start a discussion about the shape of Pikachu's tail while you're at it.

I agree that the Pokemon are getting less interesting - mostly because they added too many too soon. In my experience I didn't feel I had as much time getting familiar with newer generations as I did with the first generation. I think there's too many, and it's too fast, then again in this franchise it would be impossible to take it slow AND keep it interesting and marketable. The self-destruction continues?
