Okay, I give up, I'm truly sick of them.

A question just came in saying 'How many people are in the Pokemon games?', as in NPCs. I, in all honesty, can tell you this now. No one is going to go that ridiculous amount of trouble to answer your question for the sake of curiosity, nobody cares and nobody will care. And it's not just that question.

Okay, I admit there are some exceptions to these forever unanswered questions, for example CWegz' question and possibly Dan's question, but most of the time these stupid forever unanswered questions are just users who are there for the points, and in a way probably don't care at all.

Seriously though, everyone here is sick of them. All they are is just another way to get worthless points. Anyone can make up a stupid question like 'How many tiles are you able to step on in every single Pokemon game?' and I could get points galore because it will remain on that damn unanswered list for years to come.

That unanswered list hasn't been empty since October 2013, over ten months ago. It has been filled up with rubbish questions that no one has ever, or will ever, care about.

Mods, editors, Pokemaster. Do this site a favour.
Ban these forever unanswered questions.

I'm sorry I felt I should add to the wonderful collection have Shift+6 characters already on this comment section.
It's just most people ask these questions for the sake of point grubbing, Mike.

I agree with most of the comments, but I don't think these questions actually help people. So I have a compromise.

People who ask these questions must state what the purpose of the question is. It could be for a formula, prediction, etc. I see no reason for these to exist other than points unless they actually help the asker.

^ Can't agree more here
I can't see a reason for dialogue changes though, besides point grubbing.
Curiosity maybe?
Definitely agree with this.
Some people are just generally interested in little details or whatever, they want to know things and/or are just curious, it might not be necessarily to help them. But I do agree w/you generally.
I've been thinking over its uses, and I came up with a farfetched one. It can help in finding out whether your copy of the game is real or not.

If an Espurr starts exhaling words all of a sudden, you know you want your money back. Way too farfetched though
If my Espurr started being all creepy I would definitely want to keep the game. :P
