I think that Gen VII shouldn't have backwards compatibility with Gen VI.

Think about it: We won't have broken things like Mega Kangashkan Seismic Toss (200 damage per turn? OP) anymore.

And without a reason to keep the IV and Nature systems the way they are, Game Freak can radically rebalance it into something better than what we have now.

Secondly, and a reason many are sure to like, the trading pool will no longer be contaminated with hacked Pokemon running around. These Pokemon will not infect the Gen VII trading boards, allowing everyone to turn over a new leaf in Pokemon trading.

Next up, people who can't afford/don't want to buy everything required for backwards compatibility are no longer disadvantaged by people who can afford/do buy everything (like Pokebank, 5th generation games just to transfer from 4th, etc)

And finally, every single legendary would have to be rereleased. Before you press that back button, that includes event legendaries too, giving international countries aside from Japan a chance at getting these rare Pokemon.

I'll really miss the pokemon I've bred in Gen VI, but I really like the idea of being able to get all of the event legendaries and hopefully ditching the IV and nature system in the process.

I'm really torn on this.

I actually agree. One of the reasons why so many players play one our Smogon Simulator Pokemon Showdown is because the new players simply cannot catch up with the veterans. This would actually give the new players and chance to actually win battles. I'm really frustrated at the amount of event pokemon we don't get too. This would stop hackers from exploiting the desperation of NA Pokemon Players stemming from the lack of good events.

the real reason they use simulators/smogon is because they suck at this game and want anything that beats them banned
