I admit that it's easy, but I'm ticked that I have to pay for it.
How long until we have to pay to battle online? Or perhaps trade online? Or battle and trade locally? Or maybe every time we start a new game? Oh, why not. Let's make every kind of Pokeball (other than the normal one, of course) DLC. Oh, and free wifi event Pokemon? lolnope. $10 for a Mew please. Yeah. TEN BUCKS FOR AN HM SLAVE.
They've said before they'll never(and Masuda himself said he doesn't want to charge children specifically) charge people for in-game features.
This is a cross-application/game features and even transferring is a cross-game feature.
