Why is Dracovish not in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet or the Hidden Treasure of Area Zero?

Hello, and what's happening with you guys? I knew that Dracovish was a popular Pokémon in Pokémon Sword and Shield competitive play? However, unfortunately, Dracovish was not made available in or transferable to any Gen 9 mainline games Pokémon Scarlet, Violet, or The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero, Pts. 1 & 2, The Teal Mask and The Indigo Disk. Now I wonder why you think? Please let me know, thanks.😉

    Why do you make so many posts about Dracovish?

    I think it's not there because it would need all four fossils to be available, and specifically the machine from SwSh to fuse its fossils.

    Plus, GameFreak (or the Pokémon Company?) seems to hate fossils and fossil reviving recently. Last time we got somewhere new to revive fossils was that place in Route 7 of Alola, seven years ago and the last time we got a new regular fossil mon was 10 years ago. Fossils have been launched into the wild, like normal mons, with excuses like "it's a very cold place therefore this extinct Pokémon can live here! This place is artificial, it can create the perfect environment for this almost extinct Pokémon! Why were people treating restoring fossils like such a big deal if they live in the wild? Who cares!"

    But they can't do that to the Galar fossils because they're fully man-made.
