....Why are we focusing on that type of thing? This is Pokemon they are fairly focused more on Pokemon, battling and world building opposed to Social Issues. Plus Japan is an incredibly Conservative so I don't think they'll try playing "catch up", as Grass Type Gardenia, says.
Okaaaay I think this is derailing a bit too off topic; how about we all take a nice deep breath and calm down, okay? I get that all these new changes is a bit overwhelming but judging something prior to seeing how things playing out isn't healthy. Let's just wait and see what else will be...
I mean... I don't mind Lillie and/or Mallow coming but... Serena returning? That seems like a bit much in my opinion and seems to shove Galar to the side. I'd like the region to stand on it's own with it's own characters, you know? But maybe Lillie, Mallow and Serena will get better development?
@Rath People have had it for a Month already due to VPN and Singapore and Canada getting it earlier on.
@RileyXY1 That is true, maybe SWSH will bring people back and end up toppling Masters; but we'll have to wait and see until than.
Sw and Sh hasn't exactly gained..... favour, for a lack of a better term. While on the other hand Masters has gained quite a ton of popularity, so I can somewhat see them focusing on Masters and trying to avoid stirring the pot with Sw and Sh.
