Why not allow people to move all of the pokemon they want instead of limiting them by region? The game DOES have all pokemon in it, doesn't it? This is not like Let's Go games that only have the first gen, right? Otherwise is a complete deal breaker.

Apparently it has all the new ones and a lot of the old ones but not all the old ones. My guess is more will be available via catching+transfer than just catching, however not all.

But is it like the Let's Go games, where you can't get the pokemon because they aren't even programmed there?

I believe so. Not sure.

God, that would be so stupid if true. And they said the games were "chock full of content" on the Treehouse...

That might end up hurting sales.

The game looks really good but oh...oh boy, that Pokemon Transfer limitation is going to REALLY upset some hardcore fans. The more casual fans probably won't care much, but there are some people who have been carrying over pokemon for years and years. They really should strongly consider patching this in or something.
