What if Pokemon took the Skylanders route?

Instead of catching Pokemon, you buy figurines or even just have certain, rare Pokemon exclusively figurines?

I think it would be a fantastic business route for Nintendo's beloved franchise. It's Pokemon so it'll sell millions regardless, and knowing Nintendo, it would develop gameplay that's so fun, no fan would want to miss out on it.

If that brought a real Pokemon game to a console I would be all for it.

I'd drop it. I don't care that Pokemon is my favorite franchise in all of gaming, I'm not adapting to that.

People wouldn't like it. But I doubt it would kill Pokemon.

If anything they should do something with the camera and AR tech.

I would celebrate in the streets

the second video game industry collapse would happen if physical DLC caught on, and if Pokémon adopted it.....

bye bye Iwata! your greed finally caught up with you!

I'd probably stop playing.
I hope it never happens.

Well Activision pioneered overpriced DLC, it wouldn't surprise me if they pioneered that too.

What's your guys' main gripe about this idea? Maybe it would grow to be too expensive? Take away the experience?
