It's what I said: Why 8 times more common? (By the way, saying 800% more makes it feel like a big deal, I prefer 8 times).

So... Why 8 times, why not 16 times or 4 times, or 32 times more common?

And talking about changing to balance the odds... Even Nintendo made shinies twice more common (200% more common), to the rate for 1/4096. Why is our rate here engraved in stone?

Because clones should be spread. Everyone should have had the chance to obtain them.

If I understand correctly: It cannot be changed because it has been that way at the beginning? And if it's changed now, it would be unfair to those who farmed in early days?

No.
What he means is that u have a MMO-Environment in PRO and its not like original Pokemon where u usually play/hunt/breed on your own. Most important thing in PRO is interacting with other players (MMO) and to keep an healthy economy in the game. So they make Pokes that rare, that not everyone can get them and if u really want it u can trade it. Same reason why breeding doesnt exist in here. PRO-Market would die completly in no time and PVP would be full of 6x31 IV monsters in every top team.^^
I could elaborate it more but i will stop here, there are already others threads in this forum to find about this topic.

Well it doesnt mean that they cant adjust numbers if u really explain (with numbers etc) why it would be healty for the economy to raise the encounters of "x-poke" in "x-area". :) Red already has done this several times this year.

You say it unfair for who farmed early. Well only for those who are greedy and self centered would say those. Xmas should be giving and having not losing and getting stressed for nothing.

Throw the word "MMO" whenever you can't answer a complaint/suggestion, and it's done. Ezpz

Because people don't understand that xmas Poke is sth special and you have to put some effort to get one. If you don't understand the rules of MMO don't play one.
