I wish game freak split their games. Have a official Pokemon showdown-esque game that can be downloaded and focus more on the competitive aspect of Pokemon. Then have main games focused on exploring new directions for the universe like botw.
This would allow game freak to give the competitive scene the love it deserves. No excessive grinding to make new teams (making the competitive aspect of the game more accessible) and it would be easier to balance since game freak tends to only do balance between iterations. They could be more selective of which content from the main game they patch in.
