You still need the gamepad at your side for chat. You need to use the touch screen in most games, and the pro controller doesn't have the features the gamepad does, like gyro or other motion gimmicks.
The ability to use every wii u app with the pro controller is also missing. Why does it only have to be with the gamepad? Why can't the information be displayed on the TV screen and scrollable with the pro controller?
Also, the buttons feel wrong. The buttons don't have the pressing smoothness other controllers have. The buttons feel loose, and the triggers don't feel like triggers.
Nintendo should soon release a Pro Controller 2.0 with the above mentioned features, because the current one is poor.
Sadly, I agree. I wished they had at least included analog triggers for when GCN games start releasing for the system. And in terms of personal preference, it has the worst layout and overall feel of any dual analog controller I have ever used, with the possible exception of the original X-Box controller.
Just think: When Super Smash Bros is released, are you going to want to use your Gamepad rather than the Pro Controller? I sure as hell won't treat my Gamepad the same way I treated my Gamecube controllers.

I got the Pro Controller as a gift, I literally haven't used it once. I haven't even connected it to the system. There is a serious lack of games that would benefit from it that I am interested in. I thought I'd use it for Monster Hunter, but I like having the touch screen as my map and inventory.
