How many people in the US have a 3ds? Burn this out for Sun and moon and you've just lost an incredibly large playerbase. 100million downloads in the US, that isn't going to equate to 3ds and pokemon Sun and moon sales. One of the reason the game is so popular is because nearly everyone has a smart phone. Unless Sun and moon are coming to smart phones as well, that strategy makes no sense.
I have been considering getting a 3ds and Sun and moon, but I doubt I'm in the majority. The publicity from this can invigorate the brand and will likely boost sales of future releases, but not by that much, and if they burn out this game like that they'll likely end up with more people mad at the pokemon brand than excited about future games.
Having pokemon go be as good as possible will make people who are fans want to play the full gameEdited by tkenietz - 8/13/16 at 10:37am
