Its been a tradition ever since the release of Pokémon Blue in Japan for GameFreak to release a "third version" of each generation of Pokémon games that add content onto what was available in the first two games among other miscellaneous changes. Sometimes they mess around with that formula, such as Gen V having sequels in the form of Black 2 and White 2, or Gen VII having both Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon as third versions. To date, the Generation VI games, X and Y, have been the only games (not counting remakes) to not get a third version. On the other hand, a rising trend in the video game industry in resent years is the DLC expansion: which add new content onto preexisting games (in exchange for paying more money, of course). These additions tend to be similar in nature to what Pokémon's third versions add. This raises an interesting question: should GameFreak start adding onto the Pokémon games with DLC expansions, instead of releasing third versions?
