Absolutely yes. I loved that game as well. I hope it becomes mandatory, like you need to beat it a dozen times to advance in a gym. --- http://i.imgur.com/PqS9Duf.jpg

Have both a Slot and Voltorb Flip. And coin buying. And the Roulette. Now it looks like a casino
This. Why were slots removed from the international versions of HG/SS anyway?
European law banned gambling in kids games. The localisation team was too lazy to make two different English versions so the US ended up with Voltorb Flip too.
Though I fail to see how VF isn't gambling...you bet coins on it...
Thanks to that there will be no more Game Corner in the English pokemon games(No Game Corner at all in Gen 5) Also Gen 6 takes place in Europe where it is banned.
Curse you European Law that stops the Game Corner in kids games the Platypus
I imagine Pokémon will just cut it out altogether. The entire franchise is so popular worldwide that everyone's lives are just easier if the makers keep anything remotely offensive out of the picture so localisation teams don't have to go through hell with cuts and censoring. --- Moo

D. It violates US gambling laws.
Pokemon battles aren't gambling as the metagame doesn't reward the winner with the loser's cash, and in-game the trainers pay you for your service (of defeating their Pokemon), or because the Pokemon League requires it. --- Winner of ares9090's Slaking Award Official Scrafty and Barry of the B/W 2 Boards
