Yay. What a fantastic idea. Now they have to re release Gen 1 and Gen 2 remakes and make it impossible to obtain most of the Pokemon and complete the Pokedex. The best part of it is it will be absolutely pointless.
Remember, everybody: We never would have gotten abilities if it weren't for that cutoff between Generations II and III. Same deal with the arguably better stat system we have now (Natures are great, the EV system got better, genders and shinies are now IV-independent). Pokemon gameplay will not be able to change and streamline further if you keep selfishly holding on to your old shiny Mewtwos and whatnot else.
Your Pokemon aren't just going to disappear because you can't transfer them over. You'll still have them on your Generation V cartridges.

Yes, I want them to cut off the old versions. I don't want to bring in Pokemon I have trained for over ten years and have sentimental attachment to. I don't want to bring in my small army of shiny Pokemon that I got via non-RNG means. I don't want to keep moving forward with my many rare event Pokemon like Darkrai and Shaymin.

why not? how does other players who start lv100 Pokemon could possibly harm you in any way? why do you need the to feel and try to guilt them that a game should be savored? why should you even care? wtf?!
seriously. i wonder how brain dead people can get.
The end is nigh! *continues playing game* psn: DragunSkullz
