Are they ever going to make all pokemon catchable in a game?

I want to really be able to catch all the pokemon myself. Yes all 649+. Is there any reason why they haven't done this yet. I believe it would add a lot to the meta game.

Because they make more money by making two games.

It actually wouldn't.

I understand the making of two games, but is there any reason you believe it wouldn't add to the meta game? The slogan is "gotta catch em' all" so why not let us "catch em' all"?

It doesn't affect the metagame at all. As far as the metagame is concerned, being able to catch all the Pokemon in one game is no different from being able to get all the Pokemon in one game through trading.

I think you may be a little confused as to what the metagame actually is.

The closest we ever gotten, and possibly we'll ever get though I hope not, was PMD: Explorers of Sky when fourth gen was the latest generation. Even then it was still missing one pokemon, Arceus. Spin offs are probably going to be the only way it'll happen. Gamefreak is too event-only happy and as said they make more from two versions.

Take this post seriously at your own risk.

I certainly hope not.
Technically, I've been at this since mid 2000's. Had everyone for a brief time when HG/SS came out. It's so hard keeping up with all these event legends though...

Yes, I agree with TC. Being able to catch every pokemon on a single game will add a lot to the metagame.
