It's not exactly like this changes much of anything, there's still Pokémon missing and they're still intending for this poor trend to continue. As bratty as people were, I'm fairly certain most were also keen to the fact that there's more to see. Just the unlikelihood of it counter-balancing the removal of one of the reasons to play. And I'm sure there will be more neat things to come, like that UK Rock-based soundtrack or supposedly they might keep their word with something post-game like a Battle Frontier to do, but for many I can fairly see why it doesn't matter anymore.
I am once again wondering since the initial Gigantamaxing leak came out if their plan for losing Megas is only in name and Pokémon like Pidgeot or Gardevoir who need them to get by will still be getting all of the stat improvements and ability changes, just under a different name with Gigantamaxing. Would be on par for them to save the workload reusing the Mega models as well.
So, Gigantamaxing, just as leaked prior.
