I don't know. The Sonic fanbase rioted because Sega changed the hedgehog's eye color; but the Pokemon fanbase fights all over the place about which Gen/region/set of starters/legendaries are the best, and because of things like if having your lead Pokemon following you outside of its ball was a great feature or totally gimicky.
Although I think the Smash Brothers fanbase can be annoying as hell too, but at least they seem to agree that Melee was better than Brawl.
Darn, I like Brawl better. Then again I have slow mental processing, and Brawl allows for more time to react so that's probably why.
