Merge the Pokemon titles back together
Please merge the Pokemon games back together. There should be no reason why the games should be even MORE fragmented than they already are. (Ex: Sword, Shield, and Sword/Shield Dual Pack are all separate categories. Why?) This completely destroys discoverability for the community. Things like this just make users lose faith in Twitch when they preach working on discoverability & search functionality for it's users.
Or even better, create one franchise category for Pokemon (and other franchises) like others have suggested here.
Sorry for all the confusion with this. We’ve recombined and restored Pokémon titles by generation. There may continue to be a handful of strange bundles in the system (example: Pokémon Sword & Pokémon Shield Double Pack), however we will be removing those as well. Thanks for your patience!

Couldn't agree more. People watch generations, not specific games for Pokemon. The need for larger franchise categories is a much more promising direction than wherever we're going now.
The way pokemon was split is very weird, please bring the categories back together by game pair.
I also agree that a main pokemon category would be even better, if possible with filters per game, or maybe per game mode like nuzlocke, shiny hunting or story.
Makes no sense to me. Games for all intents and purposes are exactly the same. Forces players of one game to intentionally break Twitch ToS in order to be discoverable in their category.
Yeah I have zero idea why the games were separated. Reinstating those and also adding a general Pokemon category for the main series would be great ideas.
Why the duel pack of all things got a category is beyond dumb.
Merge em back or just make a general "pokemon" directory.
Having a single Pokemon category and being able to filter by game would be far better than having them all separate.
