Since the demos of the game occurred, a couple of Pokemon and Assist Trophies have been removed from the final version. You may recall that Darkrai, Shaymin, and Cherrim were confirmed as Poke Ball item Pokemon a few weeks ago. However, this is no longer the case. What could be the reasons for their removal? Perhaps it was too much data for Wi-Fi play, and lead to slower battles?
