Why did game freak feel the need

To make people wait for certain events in games? Like the safari zone you had to wait x number of days to get a certain pokemon, and if you change your clock it doesn't work. Why did they even add some thing like that? It's stupid. And they don't even let you take a shortcut.

Because it extended the longevity of the games! :D

I haaaaaaated the Safari Zone like that. I just want the old one back. It was simple, and enough of a challenge already.

It gives people an incentive to keep playing the game for hundreds of days instead of just a week or two.

It's a bad idea, but Game Freak.

Yeah that part of the safari zone was pretty stupid. Customization could've been a good thing, but the whole object concept was just horribly applied...IMO at least.
I summoned a baby to attract a lion. It didn't seem to work, so I tried a delicious baby.

Oh the wonders of breeding and trading. If I want a certain Pokemon from the Safari Zone I just grab a previous game breed the Pokemon and trade it over.
