This is how it should be.
I'm pretty sure they didn't do that just to block the retards that would inevitably go "WHY COULDN'T I DO THIS BEFORE? SHIT CONTINUITY." They kinda gave up by the time HGSS came out, though.
Autism is a mental disorder in which several sections of the brain, causing the individual difficulty grasping social concepts. extreme sensitivity to certain senses (colors, loud noises), and the brain sees patterns in literally everything, often in the form of numbers.
>So then why do they still do it?
I don't think this has anything to do with continuity.
They used friendship in gen 2 depending on night and day to evolve them to show off two new game mechanics.
I don't know what the fuck 4th gen was about. Why those stupid rocks? Who knows. Just interesting I guess.
And obviously for gen 6 they were displaying the petting simulator and that separate bonding mechanic. .
>I don't know what the fuck 4th gen was about. Why those stupid rocks? Who knows. Just interesting I guess.
Location evos were a thing in Sinnoh, between Leaf/Glaceon, Magnezone, and Probopass.
Sun Stone and Moon Stone were both in gen 2, Dusk and Dawn were not.
Plus, umbreon is Moon
lightand Espeon is MorningSun
>I don't think this has anything to do with continuity
Then why do we have to uses incenses instead of having Munchlax/Mantyke/Bonsly/etc. hatch from eggs by default?
>Dusk and Dawn
anon, Shiny and Dusk are the light-based pair of evolutionary stones introduced in gen 4. Dawn is the special one that brings out muh LGBT-powers in autistic Pokemon.
And yes, the translators fucked it up. Dawn Stone is actually called Awakening Stone, whereas the other two are Light and Darkness Stones.
I'd rather they fix the stone names above, than retcon eeveelution methods.
>Eevee could magically evolve with leaf stone all this time, but it is only now possible in gen VI
That would be stupid, same with Sylveon/shiny stone and Umbreon/moon stone.
This guy's got it.
That's not a retcon retard. A retcon changes previously established information into something else that directly contradicts something. Adding new evolutions via new methods is not a retcon.
>"alright I played with Eevee long enough on Amie to have two hearts time to evolve that sucker"
>no wait you also need it to learn a Fairy type move before leveling up
Why did they feel the need to further complicate Sylveon's evolution method? Eevee isn't really short of Fairy type moves, but the Amie affection mechanic alone worked well enough.
No it didn't
>play with Eevee in Amie
>it evolves into Espeon because it's daytime
>play with Eevee in Amie ater learning your lesson
>it evolves into Umbreon because it's night time
this is the answer youwould've ome up with if you thought about it for more than a single second
Retconning should always be avoided as much as possible if possible. It's obviously a better solution to introduce new evolution methods instead of shoehorning old evolution methods for new pokemon and contradicting things.
It's not like adding on types to old pokemon where there's nothing they can do about the overlap. The only ones mad about the varied eeveelution methods GF thought up are symmetry autists like yourself.
>play with my eevee in amie
>evolves into sylveon
>wanted an espeon
this is why it requires a fairy type move
iirc the only option is charm, so why they didn't just say "evolve with charm and amie" is unknown
Piloswine: Can have Ancient Power as an egg move as early as G2. Can't evolve into Mamoswine because lol no Mamoswine.
Lickitung: Can have Rollout as via TM/Move Tutor as early as G2. Can't evolve into Lickilicky because lol no Lickilicky.
