What is a change that you think would be the end of Pokemon, giving that it is highly successful?

Its pretty hard for me to think of one but hoping to see some interesting/funny ways that would guarantee its end

Explicit sex scenes. An AO rating would prevent the game from being sold in most stores, tanking its sales to a tiny fraction of what it currently manages.

So basically 4Chan pokemon?

I think that wouldnt take it as hard as you think given its current older audience

We could name a generation of Pokemon after letters.
X, Y, Z

And then forget all about the legendary letter.
Zygarde

And then forget about including our alphabet themed Pokemon for our alphabet generation.
No Unown in X, Y, Z?

Shit we'll just make up a new ultimate move named after it
Z moves

Lol half our Alolan forms look like goofy goobers with mustaches, wigs, and generally have mediocre stats. Good work, guys!

Lol Mega Flygon and Mega Milotic... the fuck outta here, guys. Come to think of it, you guys buy our games no matter what anyway, so we'll go big with RAYQUAZA post game instead of a Battle Frontier! (Corporate handshakes all around)

Generation 8:
Are we Digimon yet, boys?

Going overboard with new types. If they added a gen with 5 new types, the franchise could die a swift death.

Story-blocking minigames.

Amping up RNG mechanics.

Longer and longer cutscenes/story segments.

But that tiny fraction would probably pay a lot more.

Alolan forms are a great concept and most of them aren't *that* out of character. Z moves were kinda interesting filler; they were also a really weird toy tie-in.

...what? Neither is a thing. Mega Milotic would be awesome, though.

Black and white was the end for me :(

Well, probably not. Not only is it not one of the main games, but Ive also heard its really good. From most people who have played it. The ones who usually say its bad also say they havent played it. It may be different from the other games, but I dont think it automatically means its bad...

HGSS was garbage period. The worst of SM was still better than the better parts of HGSS.

No, its bad. Throwing 50 balls to catch one Caterpie (for example) just to level up your team sucks. And you do it over and over and over... forever.

Idk. From what Ive seen of my roommate, looks fun. And from all the people I know who have the game, most apparently like it. I havent heard that complaint from anyone. Sounds more like an exaggeration. But idk. I am more likely to believe people (multiple) I know, and that I know have the game, than one random person on the Internet, no offense. Especially since people have been complaining about this game since before it came out...

Genetically engineer real life Pokemon. Start a theme park/zoo. Life finds a way. Pokemon escape and wreak ecological havoc on the world not to mention just killing people because super mutant abilities. Global financial collapse. Native species of plants and animals face extinction. Nobody wants to buy game no more. People just want to have shelter. Just want to have water. Just want to eat this week.

Required online connectivity that ends when Nintendo stops supporting the console the game's on, effectively bricking your game.
