Producer Junichi Masuda explained the decision of the team and he said that he’s proud of it. He said, “It’s not necessarily that it’s made us rethink things per se, but what we are always looking at for the future is what we can do to make the most interesting game possible and make a more enjoyable, richer experience for the fans.”

He also said when new moves and abilities are added to the game, it creates a deeper experience for everyone. Matsuda clearly said that giving people more attachment to the Pokemon is one of their main priorities.

He also said that Pokemon Home is also on the way. So, the fans can also enjoy that game. Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield are set to release on November 15 on the Nintendo Switch.
