Makes the games seem more different beyond superficial, and aesthetic differences.

That was redundant -__-

To make the multiplayer/social features worthwhile. It's how Pokémon has always worked. Why is this still a question people ask?

Or you can just buy both versions if you hate talking to people.

Actual reason? Because by putting a little extra work to make two games with minute difference, they guarantee the chance that a statistically significant percentage of buyers will purchase both versions.

I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

better question: if you removed exclusive pokemon, what would be the point of 2 versions?

Simple. To force the player to trade with others to complete the pokedex. And to make money off of multiple purchases if you have no friends.
