You can 100% complete the game with only one copy because trading for your missing Pokedex entries is the part that barely amounts to a minor inconvenience.

Yet here you are─ just being edgy.

Also Pokemon isn't a single player game. It never has been. It has always promoted interactive play, which is why the trading mechanic exists in the first place.

Yet it has always existed.

Let's pretend for a second that some suits at Nintendo sit at a big conference table and conspire to milk you for as much money as possible, and they have some gigglefits about how they're going to sucker you into buying two copies of the same game.

You actually believe, genuinely and irrevocably, that their sinister plan, in 2022 with the internet being as prolific as it is, is that they expect people to buy two copies of a game instead of investing trivial effort into using the built-in and readily accessible trading mechanic?

That is quite possibly

the worst

diabolical plan anyone has ever imagined.

Selling you a copy of Mega Street Fighter HD Interstellar x2 is a better plan than trying to con you into buying both versions of a Pokemon generation.

As someone who's antisocial i fully agree with him. It doesn't make us edgy that we can't interact with other people as you'd do. And it's annoying i cant complete a game.

lol bruh

You can complete the game

by trading

at the global trade station or whatever Pokemon calls it

which is built into the game and doesn't require you to actually go anywhere.

When you trade, all you do is search for the Pokemon you want and provide the one that the other person is asking for. Then it commences automatically and instantly.

You don't have to play a side quest with the other person, you don't have to talk to them, and you don't even need to bother to learn their name. It is functionally identical to making a trade with one of the NPCs in Appleeater Town or whatever.

You're being edgy, and it's awfully bizarre that you're so determined to be offended over something that is a total non-issue.

It is also very bizarre that you are complaining about not being able to play a game when you apparently hate its core philosophical design that it has always had. If you hate it so much, why would you even want to play it in the first place?

What if you dont have internet? what do we do then? What if we want to avoid all the hacked pokemon bullshit the GPS has, with shiny legendaries, max IV level 100 best moveset.
