Someone still plays it, their latest versions are still selling.

Not surprising at all on Nintendo's part. Why would you release an affordable app for a competing platform? Now they can officially go "You can pay $26 to have it on iOS, or you can get a 3ds and have it for free."

But if you want a justification for the high price, Game Freak does not usually develop for iOS, their usual platform is the DS Dev kit. The added expense is them having to learn the new platform.

Same here, I still have FireRed and my GBA somewhere in my bottom drawer. Maybe it's time for another round of pokemons.

Something is VERY wrong indeed. I can't say that I've seen Catherine Cai post anything about Apple before as that used to be all Zak.
