Okay so weird question:
Is there an official reason why Trunks never got new Dragon Balls?
I mean bare with me, but everything up until Cyborg Frieza coming to Earth was identical in both timelines, meaning New Namek exists in both, and at least Goku fucking knows where it is.
1) Trunks Timeline Goku could have just put a hand on King Kai and phoned Trunks with the location. I don't care how far it is, the Briefs built spaceships before, and can now built time machines too.
2) "Main timeline" Goku also knows it, and even if Trunks and his mom weren't aware of going to New Namek being an option or didn't know where it was, Trunks was literally there as they created a new set of Dragon Balls for Earth. Why the hell wouldn't he ask "main" Goku for the location going home?
Surely, the New Namekians wouldn't mind doing him a solid to save the planet of the dude that saved their planet and let him wish back Piccolo. Or if Piccolo ate Kami, surely Dende could have been convinced to create some new Dragon Balls on Earth like in the other timeline, and then they could literally just fix everything. No need for cities to be slowly rebuilt, literally just wish everyone back, or if it's too late for them (like some bullshit about weaker spirits fading into the cosmos or something), wish cities to be restored and the Z fighters back. I somehow doubt they would all say "nah" to that, especially when Dabura and Babidi and show up (which apparently happened in that timeline though I have no idea why because literally only Trunks was on that planet with any juice, not exactly the ripe and plentiful pickings of the main timeline).
It probably wouldn't have done shit against Black, but it's not like Trunks went back expecting that his timeline should remain the Dragon Ball equivalent of Mad Max forever.
Why the fuck couldn't the little pink-to-blue shitstain be even remotely competent?
Why don't things make sense in my Toriyama powerlevelshit fightan magic comedy series?
