I still don't understand why nintendo doesn't just release 1 complete pkmn game.

Title to big. 80/80


Lets lists what was added to promote trading..

-Pokemon that will only evolve via trading
-1 time legendary pokemon
-Shinies
-Ev trained and IV unique pokemon
-Legendaries/ pokes from other games.

-Event triggering pokemon.

All of this from my ancient and dated knowledge of platinum. I know there gotta be a few new ones added in already. With all these options to promote trade you would think there be enough.... but apparently it isn't. To me it seems like a obvious attempt to milk the mainline franchise by releasing 2 different versions of the same game when all the content can be huddled into 1 (Emerald, crystal, Yellow, platinum, Possiblity of Z however gray was skipped.....). Do anybody have a good reason why?

because some ideas either don't make it into the final game or are thought of until it is farr too late to add them.

also money.
it makes them more money.

Dlc just nullified this argument for Z though. Doesn't make sense for the others as the 2 versions come out on the same day and the differences are often minimal in the 3rd version.

Money is the most reasonable answer though.

Easy. GF knows that people will buy at least one version, while others will buy both. Even when people realize that the first versions are the ones GF puts lower effort in, they will still sell until 3rd versions (which have slightly more effort with faster gameplay and some sort of gimmick that turns out to be pure hax) are made and bought.

One game doesn't make as much money as two, silly.

Game Freak is not a second party. Nintendo doesn't own them. They've made games for other systems in the past, like this one:

Pulseman, for the Sega Genesis.

They just stick with Nintendo nowadays because it's the most profitable.
