No, it's because it's on a new console and they can't use the old models because the coding is meant for the 3DS. Maybe it's just that they need to make new skins for the models, but either way the problem persists. I'd rather they not waste the time and risk sacrificing other elements of the game. The only thing it REALLY causes problems for is the competitive circuit, but people should be able to enjoy Pokemon aside from that. And it's not like this is going to be a thing for every game that follows... Besides, it also causes people to be more resourceful when playing the game regularly -- making it a more interesting experience. I think they made the right call. Well, I mean I guess if they took another year then they could do the national dex, but you have to forgive them -- they're a company, afterall. No matter how much we love Nintendo they do have to make money and keep up with competition, it's unrealistic for people to assume they work 100% just for our enjoyment. At the end of the day I'd say they do pretty good for us.
