Really Game Freak!?!?!? Charging for transfering??? (Rant)

Isn't the Pokemon Franchise making enough money as it is? Why do they have to charge for the transfer?? So if you don''t want to pay the fee, you can always start the whole, IV Breeding, EV Training, Lvl up from scratch... Well that really is going to reduce the hacking, right???
Pokemon isn't for kids, it's for people who are made of win.

Can't think of anything

They're unavoidably charging for the cloud storage service, and transferring is a side service to that.

And, BTW, IV breeding and EV training are easier than ever this gen, so not a valid whine.

5 dollars for a whole year isn't as much as you think. That's about 41 cents per month.

Why? Because they can.

Oh no. 5$ a year. The horror.

Plus there's a 30 day free trial. Which is enough to transfer all your old Pokemon.

It has always cost someone money to transfer in the past. Link Cables anyone? Finding someone else with the game and system? And the 5 bucks is for storage anyways. If you can't afford 5 bucks a year, you really should not be playing videogames. Ever.
