I'm gonna blow your mind

To be fair Nintendo was trying to make people avoid doing 100% runs. You only need 441 seed to get everything useful you can get with them and the only thing you get with all 900 of them is ... literal crap.After finally getting to play Zelda: BotW, and finishing a tedious 100% run on it (Yes, all 900 korok seeds! ;_; ), Given how annoyed I got playing a supposed 'good' open world game, I'm scared of what an underdeveloped one in Pokemon could look like.
Their design goal there was more "you have a lot of options to get all the stuff, so there's no need to keep trying for one you think it's very annoying" than "welp, gotta collect them all".
So, if that was your only / main issue with BotW, I don't think you have to worry about it, because I really really really doubt GameFreak will follow this design philosophy.
I must admit I do worry a bit about performance issues and the possibility of Sinnoh being a vast wasteland with nothing of interest besides the occasional town or Pokémon cluster - realistic in a way, but doesn't really make for great entertainment.
