All things being equal, "why couldn't it be in the base game" is the exact same argument that's been made against all DLC since the advent of DLC. Can't really blame that one on Game Freak.I mean, certainly it has become the norm in like the past 10 years, but that wasn't always the case. Expansion packs for the likes of original Blizzard games, map packs for the likes of Halo, original content made past the game's development cycle and wasn't part of the plan to include in the base game nor expected. The price they're asking for the actual new content shown here seems fine, personally. Thankfully, it's not being extended to said content that was removed and put back in.
I watched Lord El-Melloi II and was happy that we were finally getting some sweet expanded TYPE-MOON-verse shenanigans.
It started fine, but it quickly lost me. It was supposed to be a mystery show but every solution wasn't one of the pre-established alternatives but rather a completely random 3rd party that had not been hinted at before followed by some convoluted explanation on magic that only makes sense to the people of that universe but not the viewer and we are expected to understand what the fuck is going on.
On top of that, we get yet another Saber-clone and aside from previously established characters we also get some dollar-bin-light-novel-side-characters. And one of them is the most annoying TYPE-MOON fuck ever, and of course, he is voiced by fucking Kirito on crack!!
In short, it was meh, and most of the time I wasn't sure what the hell was going on and the last arc only depressed me since we'll probably never get the Tsukihime remake.
But why always Kanto, why not pokemon from other regions?
First Ponyta and Farfetch'd and now this...
There is that new Zigzagoon evolution, to be fair.
