I don't think so, but it's still inconvenient for those that want to use it--YouTubers come to mind--and a poor design choice. A feature like that should really be available from the get-go.
I don’t disagree but I hope people don’t blow it out of proportion. It doesn’t seem like anything more than a very minor inconvenience at worst.
 
I gotta focus. I'm shifting into pokemon mode.

YouTubers usually just turn down the volume on the TV or recording, though.

It's not like Pokemon has had those types of controls in the past though. So I don't know what the big deal about the ear buds is.

I do think it's not a big deal, but it's also a really dumb decision. Basic quality of life stuff that doesn't affect gameplay at all should doesn't need to be locked behind progress like that. And then you have your options in the bag, too, which isn't very intuitive.

Didn't LGPE have it, though?

i suppose it is a bit unconventional, but at least it's with something that's not crucial, plus it's in the first other town you go to.

I think that this thread should be locked because there's no news left as the game is now releasing.

Sugimori art!

I do wonder when we'll see all of it for the new Pokémon.
I figure the art will release soon, perhaps even tomorrow, though this is just speculation; I don’t know when Sugimori art for previous gens released.
