The Restaurant is Charging Too Much

Rate this Entry
Once upon a time, there was a fast food restaurant where everyone loved to eat. They made such delicious burgers and sandwiches with tons of flavor. The customers also liked that their sandwich came with free sauce, as to many customers it pretty much made the sandwich.

Then one day, the restaurant had a change in policy. From now on, you could only get free sauce if you added Provolone Cheese to your sandwich for 25 cents, and it caused an uproar from the customers. Supporters of the new policy said that you shouldn't complain because the deal was worth it, and the Provolone Cheese is too expensive to be given away for free.

The supporters of this policy don't seem to understand the complaints. Okay, I get that the Provolone Cheese is expensive and that paying 25 cents for it is cheap (IDK if that's really cheap for Provolone, but for the sake of the argument, let's say it is). That's not the issue. What if I don't want the Provolone, but I do want the sauce? I'm getting ripped off because I have to pay 25 cents extra for the same sandwich I used to get, which is kind of cheap.

BTW, if you don't get what I'm saying:

    But some people claim that was interpreted wrong and that Transporter is actually free.

    We need official clarification, that's all.

    Yes, I've been hearing conflicting information about whether or not the Transporter is free. However, many people have still been saying that a forced Bank + Transporter bundle is reasonable and don't seem to understand why some say otherwise.

    I'd really like the official website to step in and clear things up, though, I'm starting to get sick of debating this issue already.

    EDIT: @UnovaCastaway; We now have official confirmation on the XY site (Pokémon Bank).

    Poke Transporter itself is technically free, but it dumps the Pokemon straight into Pokemon Bank, so you still will be paying for Bank if you want to transfer.

    Come on. It's $5 a year. I think you can handle it.

    @Akzivx V; Whether or not the price is reasonable is irrelevant, the entire point is that it's unreasonable to bundle a free feature with a paid feature and then expect to pay because you only want the free feature.
