Instead of catching Pokemon in the game, you buy a $10 figurine of the Pokemon you want to be able to add it to your team.

Gotta buy 'em all?

That would be the worst thing ever.

It loses its fanbase, and the series ends.

They should've launched the Wii U with a Pokemon game that used NFC figurines.

For a main series game. That's a fail. But for a spin off I'm actually surprised that they haven't done a game with collectible AR Cards to access in game content. They could've gone the route of the e-Reader and make cards that could be used with the TCG games but unlocked AR feature with the 3DS

There'd be a fandom split. Fans like me would call it quits, whereas others would talk about how this is a great idea and how Nintendo is finally getting with the times.

It would be a huge success. I refuse to believe otherwise. Square Enix managed to get away with making games that everybody buys primarily FOR THE MICROTRANSACTIONS AND DLC. Gamefreak could probably do the same thing.

I'd probably abandon the main series.
