If death scenes were showed in game, the games would probably have to be rated E10+ rather than E, which could reduce the audience size. That's probably why Nintendo doesn't do it. The pokemon games truly suprise me with the fact that they're all rated E, considering the large amount of violence and focus on it, the evil teams/rival, some possibly scary pokedex entries, and the possible feeling of peril during close battles. There's even 2 games where you can kidnap pokemon - for good reason, but still.
