OMA! Oh my Arceus, the Pokemon community online does this a lot. Notice how some people are like... well, read the above. And then they just go buy the game, so it doesn't really change anything.

I, myself, think that more Pokemon can't hurt.

My only problem is that I no longer have the ability to 'Name 'em All'.

Reply Blue Tomoshibi, October 4th, 2010, 5:55 pm

I was around when Pokemon first came out and loved the Gen 1 games, but the Gen 1 designs aren't as great as people say they are. A pile of sludge? A thumb with eyes and a nose that evolves into three thumbs?

People need to take of the nostalgia glasses and realize that Pokemon is Pokemon, and if it came from gamefreak it is a Pokemon. So what Ken Sugimori isn't the one designing them himself anymore! He's still there, it's not like they fired him after gen 2 people.

@Tanokii Same here

Reply Vye Brante, October 4th, 2010, 6:15 pm

Yeah. I was a bit iffy for a while because some of the designs were just weird. But now that I've been able to look through them all, there's a lot of them I am in love with and just can't wait.

People will always find a reason to complain though.

a pokemon is a pokemon, deal with it. people mostly call gen 1 the best and most original because 1) they were the first and 2) they either grew up with them or still love them

some of my friends dont care cuz they started 3 years ago >_> stupid late bloomers~

Reply Dalek555, October 4th, 2010, 7:37 pm

GEAR. Gear. The most original name nintendo ever came up with.

@Dalek555 You are so right, and the evolutions are Gigear and Gigigear. My friends still laugh at the names.

^4th evolution: Clock.

@Slimey Jacobstien It IS every single complaint that a Sonic/Nintendo fan has ever had!

Seriously. Some of the Classic Sonic fans need to practice what they preach and grow up exactly like what they tell the Next-Gen Sonic fans. I've played Sonic from his birth 'till now, and I STILL love that awesome blue hedgehog.

BTW: Sonic 4 Ep I and Sonic Colors both look fantastic. Can't wait to get 'em!

I actually find the new pokemon intriguing. While most look odd, there are several cool looking ones. But, myself, I'm more of a person to look at the pokemon types, moves, and such. Some of the combinations they've made with the types certainly seem interesting...

Also, I really want to find out why that one pokemon (gah, can never remember the name) is listed BEFORE the starters, as Isshu #000. That's a number role that's previously been reserved for the late-and-great MissingNo...

@Dalek555: Actually the name isn't really gear, it just translates so close to it we just call it that.

Sad, but true... :S

Reply Crusty_Kris, October 6th, 2010, 12:05 am

There's a handful of new poke's i'm thinking of getting, though some of the new ones are actually kind of stupid, like the garbage pokemon and, as mentioned, the ice cream pokemon. But a ghost/fire chandelier? Awesome!

Reply Maowe, October 6th, 2010, 10:28 am

i say they stop the anime... But the game stays....

I really don't care if anyone says that they don't like the new pokemon....

Reply Nick (Guest), October 7th, 2010, 5:06 pm

I'll buy it and nickname each after other pokemon.

Reply EI (Guest), October 8th, 2010, 6:59 pm

I must admit I'm not a fan of the ice cream cone.

But seriously, I don't think the new generations are so bad that they're worth this kind of reaction.

Reply Super Lucario Bro., October 9th, 2010, 5:45 am

Eh... Although I have my complaints about the Pokemon, I'm still probably going to get it, mostly so I can still talk to my friends with out going "WTF?", but it's not the first game on my list. Meh.

Reply MattiFS, October 9th, 2010, 5:42 pm

I've had all gens except 3rd (and side games) but i'm not going to get Black or White.
It's not because of the pokémon but because of the gameplay, it's all the same.
Catch pokemon, win battles, get badges, beat evil guys, become champ, catch 'em all.

I'd get a remake of Yellow but that's cause I'm a pikachu fan.

I just think it's about time Dark got its own gym! Seriously!

Reply random (Guest), October 11th, 2010, 8:00 pm

@Lewis90 I agree, and the Isshu Elite Four are the MOST COMMON TYPES IN THE ELITE FOUR!!!! I mean seriously, Ghost, Dark, Psychic, and Fighting are the most common types(excluding Dragon types)! And also, STOP THE ANIME! STOP THE ANIME! STOP THE ANIME!(1 year later)Stop.....The.....Anime.....

Reply Leafsword (Guest), October 12th, 2010, 1:55 am

replies.... This is long... @Dalek: Note that this name is in japanese, and not nessessarily what it'll be in english. Not that it would be the first dumb name that pokemon have gotten; I refer to you: Ekans, Arbok, Abra-Kadabra-Alakazam, Muk, Onix, Drowzee, Mr. Mime, Magmar, Pinsir, Porygon-Porygon2, Seel, Dewgong, Mankey, Gloom, Golem, Ditto, Far Fetch'd, Persian, Scizor and.... Mew's clone Mewtwo. How inventive!
@Blue Tomoshibi: I was five when I got pokemon Blue, and have loved (and completed) the games ever since, albeit I only remember my bulbasaur from Blue, and My Blaziken and Kyogre from my now-lost sapphire, and that i got my crystal pre-hacked. I barely realized that a lot of pokemon disappeared in gen 3: an 8-year old mind cares little for the past, and I loved all the cool, colorful, detailed new pokemon. I love the new pokemon. Who cares if ones an ice cream? We also have wobuffet and ditto, both blobs, and living pokeballs that A: Like to blow up and B: Evolve by ROLLING OVER. They aren't the only bad evolutions in the first gen: Diglett-Dugtrio, Mankey-primeape, the Poliwhirl and onwards, Magnemite, Seel, Grimer, Krabby, Cubone, Ponyta, Tentacool and Staryu- All have evolved forms little or no different. So I totally agree that while some pokemon in the 3rd gen onwards are crap, so are some from earlier on. Take off the nostalgia glasses, everyone.

What? I'm done now.

i started playing in 2008,but the moment i saw the 1st gens i fell in love with for 5th gen,im gonna train some weak/underused/hated pokemon in my team :P i do it every game i play

Reply Giras the Ebil, February 28th, 2011, 11:18 pm

Okay I admit it.... This is me. But only because they're finally going to animate the pokemon.

Reply HeartlessMasterZach, March 11th, 2011, 10:11 pm

That is what i am about some games (not pokemon) like with paper mario foor gamecube i said i hated it, but i bought it anyway

Reply IAMSNAKEMAN, February 22nd, 2012, 7:44 am

Reply blueyoshicool, March 8th, 2013, 9:59 am

@coolpilot: Missingno. is in the national PokeDEX as no.000.

Reply Alph the Fox (Guest), June 16th, 2015, 10:46 am

Yeah. That's very true. "Fanbase Common sense 1xx: if you don't like it, then don't even get the thing." Works well with anything, really.
