I don't want to sound cynical, but said fans would probably do something else besides hatching eggs if there was something else to do besides the 5 hour story that's consistently getting easier with each game. The lack of any meaningful postgame besides Battle Maison knockoffs means there is so little to do if you don't care about competitive, especially once you've filled your Pokédex.

Masuda keeps blaming other groups for problems the series is faced with, but doesn't really try to solve said problems in any meaningful way besides taking more and more things out over an irrational fear children will lose interest otherwise.

It's not cynical, don't worry. Masuda is getting out of touch.

I love him, but he's making it VERY hard to like him.

What Masuda said is nothing new. If people got offended, it's because they just realized they are not special.
