You wouldn't be giving up anything if they stopped backwards capability. You know why? Because your Pokemon are in gen 5. You can still play with them everyday. Just put black or white in and go do your thing lol
Well I'm all for not having backwards compatibility, so yeah, I'd be willing to get something extra for something I wanted in the first place.
why in the blue hell would anyone be for not having backwards compatability?
i genuinely dont understand that.
although given this choice, if i had to pick between either backwards compatibility or revisiting regions, id take the regions, provided we get ALL the regions, the sevi islands AND the orange islands. i want all of it. honestly, id be ok with being required to box all my pokes from each region upon entering a new region until that elite 4 has been beaten if that was how theyd choose to implement it too...
