Pokemon is turning to garbage now, I have scientific proof

Hey it is Fritz.

Shouldn't you be playing Mass Effect or did the diks break?


I broke my 2nd dik months ago


That's unfortunate.

Oh the upside...

Don't let it go to your head~
Games like that are a dime a dozen~

I'd rather be "butthurt" (which I guess means annoyed now) than a sad, pathetic brony any day.

WRONG! Pokemon is more popular than its ever been and is showing no sign of stopping. You just need to stop living in the past.

Hah check it out in an interview wieht the games creator, he says he only directs part of the series now; he lost his creative control. They kept it on the hush hush to avoid a boycott and now we're the ones with eggs on our face. I don't see how you guys don't get overwhelmed with the crap-tastic pokemon that gets shoved at us. I've been better half baked rockman villains.

I still love pokemon, just not the coordinates gen and I'll honestly never ever forgive what they did to the anime.


Why, with every franchise, do people turn to this reasoning to claim something's going down the toilet? Did you really expect the guy to do nothing but Pokemon in his lifetime? And the series would get more stale if they didn't have fresh blood coming in to revitalize the series. Quite frankly there are a lot more video games I wish they'd just get some new people in and try new approaches. Some series do honestly go southward when the original creative mind leaves the team, but I don't think Pokemon is that case. However that's only my opinion on the matter.

Regardless, you do have the right to your opinion. I feel that a new 100-150 per gen is a bit much, however I don't agree with sticking with just the original 151. The pokemon games are aiming to simulate their own little world. Our world definitely does not have just 151 kinds of animals or organisms for that matter. So would it really make sense for the pokemon world to have the exact same 151 creatures everywhere you go in said world?

I feel like more pokemon is a good thing, however I will agree that for this gen at least it probably shouldn't be their biggest focus. The games are getting to a point where just adding new pokemon won't bring a mind-blowing experience. From the trailers it looks like they're taking the stepping stones to change the rest of the game's mechanics, however we just have to wait and see. In my opinion if they could work on adding more sandbox/rpg elements to the games like they tried with B/W/B2/W2, then I think the franchise will actually grow to be even better.

In short: I see your point, to a degree I agree with you. However I don't think the series is going to get worse.

If you want to stick to the original Pokemon, you are free to go back to play Red, Blue or Yellow versions. Many of us have already moved on. Enjoy your nostalgia goggles.

Ha, you sound like an old grandpa "Things were better in my day!! When I was a kid I had good games! Old games! And I was perfectly happy. You kids with your Gen 6 and the like... in the old days we had Red and Blue, with no colour, horrible gameplay, and barely any variety at the time compared to later versions. We were happy darn it! You young'uns aren't allowed to have fun, if I hate it you should too or I'll lecture you about it!"

Wow, really? The first games that exploded in popularity in the public and started a sensation that caused many people to try them out regardless of whether or not they would become fans and have also been out for 15 years have sold the most copies?

Next you'll be telling me that water is wet!

Of course they older ones will sell more. They've been around longer. And Black and White weren't as popular as the previous ones I'll admit. But that's not to say X and Y will fall into that. Especially with all the hype it's getting.

Pokemon is turning to this hipster crap: http://i.imgur.com/LASYC2c.gif

I am so upset to be alive in this day and age when people are calling me old for loving things before it was garbage
