    Apparently someone thought that the reason there wasn't a Z version because they wanted to do something for it's 20th anniversary and do it with a new Gen. Although I feel that's speculation on my friend's part.

    It makes sense for them to want to cash in on a new generation for the 20th Anniversary.

    The 20th anniversary of the franchise was in 2016, but I don't see why we couldn't have gotten "Z version" in 2015 since no core games were released that year. I don't see what was stopping Game Freak from adding a couple of new gimmicks and features to X/Y and repackaging the games as "Z version" in 2015.

    i think people exaggerate the kanto pandering. only a few kanto pokemon received mega evolutions and other than that i didn't think kanto was represented in x/y as much as some people like to believe.

    Compared to other regions, Kanto had a lot of Megas

    There’s a ton of Kanto pandering: Snorlax, gift Lapras, Mewtwo, the gift starters, the first encounter is always a Pidgey, Santalune Forest is just a carbon copy of Virdian’s, & you’re much more likely to encounter Kanto Pokèmon than the at the time new Kalos Pokèmon. I do agree the complaints about Kanto pandering is more annoying than the actual pandering but it’s not like it isn’t there
