Eh fair point. I'm still surprised that out of ALL the bugs and glitches in Scarlet and Violet they chose not to fix the one that erases players' save files oh but that's not important let's fix the minor ones. I mean what were they thinking? Perhaps there weren't enough complaints in regards to the problem for them to actually address it. For those who don't know what I'm talking about this was mentioned on YouTube:How about people learn to have patience. SV already has enough bugs as-is. I don't want to see what effects rushing Home might have on it.
I'm concerned that at this rate, their next titles might not even work let alone have more content cut than we got this generation. TPC is really ready to run their flagship franchise into the ground for a quick buck aren't they? Or at least Ishihara seems ready to do so. It's either that or Game Freak has gotten too big of an ego to except help or a longer dev cycle.Legends Arceus could have easily held the franchise for long enough for Scarlet and Violet to get its proper development time and come out actually finished. And this is made even easier by the existence of DLC, smaller chunks of content that the anime and merch can use to give more development time for the main titles.
Now we have situations like these where stuff that normally comes out reasonably fast have to be delayed because the games are getting less and less development time due to strict deadlines, solely because either Nintendo or Gamefreak think they need a pokemon mainline game to be in every holiday season.
I would legit wait like an extra year or two while the new game gets DLC to hold people until the next game over the current business practice because their current practice just leads to games clearly rushed and unfinished.
I used DLC as an obvious way to give games more development time because i have seen so many people try to justify the current release schedule by saying the games have to be released in this way because of merch and the anime. Forgetting that the anime could just do filler arcs like Orange Islands and merch will sell by the millions regardless if new pokemon are released or not.The anime already had so many fillers shoved throughout Gen 8 as well.
In all fairness, the GTS has always been extremely exploitable when they were in the games. Gens 4-5 allowed everyone to get any kind of Pokemon they wanted at the time through use of DNS servers (want a Huge Power Zekrom with Shell Smash? You got it). Nothing much more to say about the DS era Global Trade Systems.Pokemon Home is a disgrace by itself. 3 years and it still has the same content from Bank + random challenges that can only be completed if you bought every release since 2002 for triple the price. And I still haven't found any convincing argument about why the GTS should exclusively be there and not in the games themselves.
As for the wait, it could be from unplanned delays for SV's patch updates or...because of the Raid events. As much as I dislike them they are very succesful so for GameFreak the delay is worth it.
I can back you up on this. I started to use the GTS in 2012 following the release of KH3D, and trading through it was impossible. Everyone wanted a Level 9 or under Reshiram/Zekrom, and you couldn't use filters back then or see more than five results. At one point, I ended up getting a hacked Shiny Nidoran♂ in exchange for a Nidoran♀.In all fairness, the GTS has always been extremely exploitable when they were in the games.

The Gen 6 and 7 Global Trade Systems are in a state of absolute despair and brokenness right now. They are both hardly usable thanks to the unique exploits people found in each. Gen 6's is filled with many untradeable hacked Pokemon with slurs thrown across in the requests or names of the Pokemon themselves, and Gen 7's had someone discover a way to render their profile picture in a way so far zoomed in/out that it's too much for the 3DS to handle. They then decided to spam as many Pokemon as possible to enter the GTS via hacking, resulting in anyone entering the GTS crashing upon searching for most Pokemon in it. They are both borderline unusable. The one in Home has a lot more safety measures, hack checks, and is probably easier to look after than Global Trade Systems in the games.
