A thought occurred to me just recently: if pokemon is all about profit for the game designers and Nintendo, then the Wii could maximize that potential.
For years, fans (outside of Japan) screamed and moaned about the "event pokemon" only obtainable by going to some remote location, usually very inconvenient for most. Now that PBR will be on the Wii, with WiFi and the ability to download add-ons, the event items could be sold a month or two after said event (maybe a little longer). It's still fair, event attendees get first claim (free no less) and other fans aren't shafted.
This after-market offer could go for somewhere in the range of 5-20 American dollars (the former if the fans are the motivation, the latter if profit is) and would bring in potential millions. Think about it, how many fans who own a copy (or copies) of D/P would not hesitate to lay down money for pokemon such as: Deoxys, Celebi, Manaphy, Sheimi, Darkrai and (the favorite or most hated) Aruseus? Most would go for it immediately. Given the volume of sales of the games, it would be one of the most successful marketing strategies yet.
Now, I don't necessarily agree with this idea, I just thought it would be interesting to point out. Discuss...
