There is a fact that most people don't recognize yet. Pokemon in general is a routine game in which you repeat the same sequence and you get bored unless you have a goal like collecting, PvPing or what so ever. Aside from the fact that this game was among the pioneer of online pokemon games and no matter what, it has its traditions and loyal fan base even if its tiny. I believe with some more work it can bring many players to play because in the back to back events in Jan, many people actually came to play. Just wait to have fun.
