Most of us do not speak/read Japanese and do not import games. The game will never be released in the US so we do not really care.
To be fair, at this point it's mainly because the plot would make no sense being three and a half games into the OG timeline so far. At least with the two GBA releases in the US, it was at the start of the timeline.
