    New game, new fluff, new translations.

    Meaning even less time/resources for porting pokemon.

    Have the languages pull that information from a core info dump. I build spreadsheets for companies tk send bulk application requests for payment. Wherever that information comes from, whatever systems you have in place, if you cannot export that into a common language (i.e, Csv) and then have that information elsewhere, then you have to go through a painstaking process of getting that information from screen 1 to screen 2. I can do this for companies who can afford to pay my minimum rare for an afternoon, or for major international construction companies.

    That pokemon, of all companies, is not able to export from their own version of essentially Pokémon Hacking software, and have that exported into a game file in a matter of minutes is a ridiculous thought.
    Tell that to Microsoft and all their compatibility problems between each differet version of their OS. Microsoft's multiple orders of magnitude more powerful and richer than Game Freak, yet they can't do it, or at least not whitout a zillion bugs that would make Sword and Shield crash every 5 minutes.
