I like to drop the pan to look inside for debris, but don't always bother.
It's about the same as cutting open a used oil filter.

Automatic transmission "filters" are also called "screens".
They don't really need changing unless there is a major problem creating debris.

You can drop the pan AND flush it completely.
Drop pan, refill trans, then pump it out, refill, etc.
