Well, indeed, the money is in physical products.


I don't thing the business is into the online game, in any way.


Maybe it's a logistic mess to have the gems feature working, maybe it's more expensive to maintain it than what they win, maybe the amount is not enough in economy graphics, maybe the users are not enough, maybe the experiment didn't work, maybe they have had complaints about the gem products destabilizing the online market prices (LOL)... who knows.


I would love to know why not spreading this to USA, the bigger Pokémon market out of Asia. If the business was not enough only in Canada, open it to new markets. I think it have potential.


Sad to say, I don't think we are going to get an answer here in forums nor in News or other place in the web -_- Review economy newspapers, who knows  :lol:

it's likely a lot of work to maintain two different currencies for two different versions of the app. I'd be surprised if they entirely eliminate purchases long term.

I honestly hope that this is just temporarily and with the next update they will reveal a new currency that is available in every region.


More money → more developers been hired → more bugs are fixed → more interesting features can be implemented → more players join the game → more money → rinse and repeat

The shadows of the abyss are like the petals of a monstrous flower that shall blossom within the skull and expand the mind beyond what any man can bear, but whether it decays under the earth or above on green fields, or out to sea or in the very air, all shall come to revelation, and to revel, in the knowledge of the strangling fruit - and the hand of the sinner shall rejoice, for there is no sin in shadow or in light that the seeds of the dead cannot forgive...
