You make a good point in regards to that front. It is definitely their right as creators to decline said help. I only said that because what the fan base is currently doing is more likely to make thing worse, so I made a suggestion about something that's much more respectful.The best way to get the point across is not to buy the games, although that's up to every person's preferences and not a boycott. Game Freak don't care about people offering help because that would mean hiring people with sketchy experience; there is no such thing as free help when it comes to a company. You seem to be telling others to help instead of doing that yourself.
Also, once I gain more experience in the programming department, I actually do intend to help depending on my availability in terms of working hours.
And allowing them to be transferred in with no intention of them being used is just as bad since it makes the company seem negligent and uncaring. I doubt Game Freak wants that kind of reputation given that what we do get from the games has a lot of effort put into it around 80% of the time, and they'll be called out for being lazy regardless. It's a situation that calls for the lesser of two evils: will they risk being called out simply for laziness, or will they risk being called negligent on top of that? Of course, there's also the third option of just limiting the Pokémon that can be transferred until such a time comes where they can be used again, which is preferable to the way Pokémon Home is currently said to operate.Home hasn't been promoted as a battle simulator and the very name implies something casual. You do realize that if all the Pokemon were playable in Home from the get-go, that would prove that Game Freak could patch them into SwSh in time for Home? It wouldn't be a good look.
Wasn't that new policy made with deadlines in mind though? They're clearly doing that because they don't want to keep us waiting; they said so as part of that announcement. Why would they say that if they weren't worried about time constraints? so they probably have the pressure of time constraints currently.The problem here is not 2-3 extra months, either. It's a new direction or policy change (take your pick): They want a smaller pool of Pokemon for SwSh and at least future initial versions.
Not for SwSh, but it could get to that point in future if they continue down this road.They've patched bad and exploitable glitches in the past, so why would they leave SwSh all glitchy if they want good reviews? Even in LGPE, there was a repair patch when the games wouldn't connect with GO during the first Shiny Meltan event.
