Hell no. I don't really understand the "I want a fresh start" argument. Nobody is forcing you to transfer your old Pokemon over. And even if we do get a "fresh start," after a few games we'll be able to catch all the Pokemon again and the novelty will wear off. I don't see the point.
I would love it if they did a fresh start. People say that there are no benefits, but to me it makes so much sense.
They could reorder pokemon base stats, change what moves they can learn, even do some retyping if they wanted. In Gen IV we ran into Stealth Rock and even Gen V limited what pokemon could learn it. However, you could still transfer a Gen IV pokemon to Gen V and use Stealth Rock without problem. Think about all the rebalancing Gamefreak could accomplish if they were allowed to re do~700 pokemon

Again, where is there any mention of abilities at all? I'm not saying Gen 3 offered nothing. I'm not saying new additions will be a downside. I'm saying not being able to transfer is a bad idea. We can most definitely have new changes without removing the transfer system. I'm open to any ideas but this is a silly one. Why shouldn't I be able to transfer? We've gone past the days of Gen 3 and I'm sure they can make it work somehow.
No, it simply wouldn't work if they were to change leveling or EV/IV or add a few new things.

I also hate the fact that a grand number of Pokemon is hacked or RNG boosted in some way.
Since this was presented, you obviously think it's a problem.
Yeah, it's a personal concern of mine, but if you actually read, I said that it wasn't the main problem that I was presenting. I can deal with them and have been dealing with them for a decade. It was just a plus of a refresh. Again, that wasn't the point at all.
I hope that you guys realize that some technical changes is inevitable in the future that will need a refresh. GameFreak was lucky to get away with changing Physical and Special aspect without having redo much of anything. -
The Vita and the Wii U boards have the whiniest people on GameFAQs.
TC, I mean this as respectfully as possible, but... ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR FREAKING MIND?!?! The current EV/IV system is perfect the way it is, there's no reason whatsoever for them to not allow transferring! And wanting a fresh start? Are you friggin' nuts?! As of this March, some of my Pokemon will officially be 10 years old! I have stuff in my Black 2 that dates back to Ruby Version, and I'm not the slightest bit inclined to replace any of it!
