How much do Pokemon fans hate region lock?

...not at all?

Why does it even matter? We're all getting the game on the exact same date and can play it in 7 different languages.

Wouldn't that be "Just asking" ?

Region lock prevents Pokemon transfers from past gens, but has allowed direct trade with them, starting at Gen 3.

I didn't mind it before, since I started playing the Japanese games only, but if the US version is confirmed to still lock out transfers from older gens like that, guess what I'm doing?

And I mean that in the least enthusiastic way....<_<

I don't care about region locking. I only know one language, why would I want to play a game that I can't understand?

I care, not because of Pokemon (I always get the English Pokemon games), but because of games that may never be localized, like Digimon World Re:Digitize: Decode.

I hate it, but it's not too much of a problem for me.
