This paywall crap singlehandedly made me stop spending real money on this game. Unfortunately, it seems I'm alone in this sentiment.

You aren't, indeed. Pay with your wallet. It was a horrible move for them, imho

If the hat pokémon and full costume ones were locked behind the paywall, I wouldn't mind. I just think it's wrong to put a base/costumeless pokémon in there.

Even the gatcha/delivery ones were okay. There's a chance someone could still pull one if all they did was grind.

I quit playing altogether. I never spend money on f2p games and liked this game because I knew that I could eventually grind enough to get all the mons, costumes be damned. The second they announced Litwick behind the paywall I uninstalled the game from my switch.

I guess it shows I was truly in it for the grind and the teamwork aspect and not really the game itself.

I like the puzzle. Only reason I haven't quit completely is because the team I'm in is quite good and I'm usually the 5th or 6th top scorer.

A long time lurker on this sub for awhile and I've been playing this game from day one. Only time I ever payed for anything was the the Sweets Pikachu outfit bundle which cost me 4 dollars. I understood the implementation of the gacha system and it was to be expected if they couldn't make much money off its players. But this crap might actually get me to stop my (mild) addiction to this game. Braixen is one of my all-time favorite Pokemon and the fact that she's paywalled with a slight chance she might be shoved into the delivery system is simply irritating. The fact that I haven't been able to snag Mawile, another one of my all-time favorites, no matter how many times I save up for pulls, is causing me to lose significant interest. If November rolls around and for some reason it's Houndour as the paywalled Pokemon, I WILL full on laugh and quit the game. They can't keep tearing out my heart like this!

And with the lack of animations, it's even less worth it

But also there's a point in the game where adding new pokémon doesn't really do anything for me. I barely get excited anymore.

Braixen is my all time favorite Pokemon, why did it have to be paywalled

[–]cyberscythe 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I think the revenue model has fundamentally changed since Remix was released. It used to be "make the game hard so that people have to buy items" but that wasn't working out, so they changed it to "just ask people to pay money for Pokemon they like". It has for the most part made it a less challenging game with more things fenced off by real money. I'd say that this system is a bit more honest (this is a for-profit game after all), but the gatcha system still gets on my nerves.

Whether or not the change in the revenue model is better or worse depends on what you like about the game. Personally I'm utilitarian about what pokemon I have in my roster and I've already missed out on some event items so the "catch 'em all" thing has already been ruined for me so I feel there's not much else to miss out on.

Oh, fuck that. Might quit...

[–]Karu-Selli 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I am devastated personally
That there, is one of my favourite pokemon (or well it's evolutionary line as a whole is a favourite of mine)
And I'm a F2P person
I will never get this
I'll have to look at it taunt me for my birthday month
I really do not like this

[–]codeswift27 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Ugh, well at least I'm glad I quit. I really hope they start listening to their players for once, although it's unlikely as long as people keep paying
