What if pokemon COULD die?

Like after old age or certain amount of knock outs or not making it to Pokemon centers in time?

It would drastically change the game. Pokemon would be dark and depressing. Friendships ending suddenly. Lifelong friendships over in an instant. Pokemon causing people to mass suicide because they lost their beloved Charizard to rabies. An opera of pain bellowed out by the cries of terror from pikachus and sylveons being ripped to shreds by starving tyrantrums. Oh the bloody horror. I love it.

Seriously though it would suck.

Oh. Well. Alright.

It would make the game more interesting.

I assume you mean hate. And the recent fire emblem has a no death option.

Digimon basically does this in a lot of the games.
Although usually you get an Egg out of it (I say usually because I haven't played all of them), but still.

Pokemon do die. They just don't use it as a game mechanic.

it would be only a thin line between it and monster rancher, but it would make you care about it more.
Heck, put in a system that makes it live longer or shorter depending on how well you take care of it lol.

Pokerus would be a terminal disease, and so would Weedle's poison sting attack.

I wanna see Pokemon get torn to literal pieces by my bloodthirsty homicidal team of Pokemon I plan to put together. Maybe if the players Pokemon never died then it would work. My fennekin wishes to taste chespin blood.

Oh. Well. Alright.
