Is this going anywhere? You're making me question if you really believed that this would be a shorter generation all along.
I didn't say it was the best incentive. But it was the best Wi-Fi event they could have chosen to promote the games. And are you seriously implying that the games didn't need to be promoted by August?I know - the best incentive to buy a game is through a promotion that wasn't announced when the games were first released!
Because it would have been very wrong to keep Genesect unreleased until the last two months of this generation. It would have been better off being reserved for the next generation in that case.What are TPC going to give out for next year's movie, unless Gen VI somehow surfaces before then? (Which it won't because of the "Best Wishes" tag on the movie poster...unless that's a red herring). The special shiny red Genesect? Well...why didn't they just wait a bit longer and give out a normal Genesect?
Also, the next spin-off could allow them to use a new Pokémon for the main movie promotion. I expect Red Genesect to be the ticket promotion.
Enough said.Who knows why they decided to wait until BW to add Random Battles? It certainly would have been cool in Platinum and/or HGSS.
Read again:According to the Iwata Asks segment I linked to earlier, he said that he moved onto BW after Platinum.
