what does everyone else think?
Um, retired status doesn't mean the trainer is officially labeled as ut of function", it just means the team won't make any new trainers for new updates.
Also it's up to them which game's trainer status will be set as "Retired" or "Active". Many older games' trainers have not actually received a "Retired" status, due to them not being patched or technically active. A game with a lot of patches will most likely be retired, rather than one that's been made a year ago and has a steady stream of patches.
