Is there a more pointless building in all of pokemon lore then the Foreign Culture Building in Platinum? You can go the entire game without noticing this building even exists because Cyrus or Team Galactic never make mention of it. You don't even find the Gym Leader here you find her in the Beauty Hall.
Why implement a building like this and not hype it up for anything. If anything, you could have made this a location for a special pokemon like Darkrai or Arceus or even Jirachi
The Foreign Building (Japanese: いぶんかのたてもの Foreign Culture Building) is a building located in the western side of Hearthome City. It has six benches and stained glass windows. All the people there talk about the grace of life in the Pokémon world, supernatural powers, and the balance of spirit and nature. It seems to be loosely based on a church or cathedral, and is the first building in all the Pokémon games to be so. Respectfully, no music can be heard in the building. In the morning, one can see a piece of the wall jutting out behind the stone tablets on either side of the inside.

I'm interested in seeing this. Does someone have a picture of this?
Pokémon Z is coming this year late.
Is there a point to the truck in Vermilion City?
Or to have separate tracks for night and day?
Or to having so many NPC's talking about trivial things?
Its there for the lore aspect, not for the "Woah NPC gave me special item" gameplay aspect.
4th gen was the gen that talked more about religion and people in pokemon's relationship's with the world more than others.
You see it mentioned that humans and pokemon used to be the same, you see people having religion, you see people having some identity issues, some talk about mortality, there was some poke god, there was poke devil, you see some girl dying or something in one house, there was some shit going on in the background for people who liked talking to the characters and getting more of a feeling for the world, rather than just pushing through.
