I don't see the point. It would be like Fritos doing a cross promotion with Lay's.

The other problem is that apps these days like to constantly run special events. This means users are always under pressure. On the rare occasions when special events are not running, everyone's so burnt out they don't even want to touch the app.

Crossovers = creatively bankrupt. It's purely for marketing but even though Link showed up in Mario Kart 893, that doesn't mean he's Mario canon. Yes, Pokémon licensing was dirt cheap but what's the point? Are they trying to lure the four or five Pokémon fans who weren't already doing AC/PC? Are they trying to draw burnt-out AC/PC users back to get burnt out again?

I suppose the idea might be to give Pokémon fans a taste of the Animal Crossing experience but AC/PC is so diametrically opposed to Animal Crossing's philosophy they might as well call it Anti-Animal Crossing.
