Why do some of you guys not want transfers?

Because you want to go back to the early days of Ruby and Sapphire where several Pokémon were not available until Colosseum, FireRed and LeafGreen? If my favorite Pokémon (the Slowpoke and Totodile families) become unavailable in these games and there's no way to transfer, I'm going to use Outrage.

Because you want to have a fresh start? Don't transfer.

Because you want something to be changed? If it's removing IV's or something, it can be done without transferring.

Because you want to hear us rage?

Because you have over 9000 level 100 Pokémon in your games and you want to be unable to transfer them? Don't transfer.

Because you want to stop hackers? We will stop once IV's are removed or changeable, and all event Pokémon can be acquired permanently.

Because they want a "fresh start" so if they get a fresh start, everybody should get one too.
Also, they think that a lack of trasferring would stop hackers from having their hacked Pokemon (which would simply encourage hackers. I know I'd resort to hacking).

I know it's been pointed out before but: transferring has always been post-game so far, so I've never understood this argument of "fresh start" since everybody has that when they first start the game. (I know you're just stating that's what is said, not necessarily siding with it :P)

Every time I hear someone say there should be no transferring because of a fresh start I feel like punching something.

Because they want to stop hacked Pokemon from coming up the pipe.

I made a topic on this matter a few months ago: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/696959-pokemon-x/65926668

So far, no one in the internet or in real life has EVER be able to defend this with any arguments other than their own selfish reasons (something like "I don't want to transfer, so no one else should either!").

Well, it would be nice to actually fight someone over wi-fi who bred their Pokemon from scratch, instead of having shinies with flawless iv's and hidden powers back to back. It's gotten terribly ridiculous. I actually raise my Pokemon and earned them.

Don't give me that crap of "oh none of us have all day to breed or soft reset." Go play one of the many Pokemon simulators if you don't have time to put any effort in the game. If you want something, earn it, just like you would in real life.

So yes I would love for Gen VI to be a "fresh start."

It's not like your old Pokemon are lost in this void forever; All the old games have lots of replay value and you can still use them.
