What Happened To the Route Pokedex?

I miss the pokedex being broken down into routes so you could see if you caught all the pokemon in that area. I can't think of a reason why they would get rid of it but it seems like they did. Sad times.

What?! Oh man... I hope there is a good reason you're missing out on. Not really seeing what that could be though.

That was seriously one of my favorite features added to Black/White. Or was it only added on Black 2/White 2? Anyway, it was awesome, really helpful for completing the Pokédex.

Just spent a bit of time messing around with the pokedex looking for it. Came here hoping to find answers but it looks like I have to leave disappointed. :(

I don't understand why GameFreak keeps doing this to us. They come up with great features like raising the difficulty and the route pokedex and then they remove it for no reason. I wish they would man up and stand by SOME of their changes at least.

I always leave it off because the effect is weak and the game barely uses it anyways. I'm not surprised they went that direction because it looks like 3DS would never be able to handle it which is why 3D isn't even an option in 2v2 battles

When did they raise the difficulty level?

@snail: They had that key system in the last game that could make the game easy or hard. I thought for sure they would keep some sort of difficulty slider going.

Huh? Key system? Wow, I must have completely missed that then. Or maybe I just don't remember it at all? You mean in Black 2/White 2 right?

After you beat the game you unlock a key that you can activate to make the game easier or harder, depending on which version you were playing. You could trade it with the other version to get both. It was annoyingly complicated, but it was nice that it was there at all.
