True of False: You're not a real pokemon fan unless you love the first game

Answer: True


At the bare core of all these try hard pokemon games lives a glimer of hope. That hope is the basic RPG elements that definded the monster battle genre.


I'm not trying to get on my high horse like some of these ironic pokemon fans, but damn it if I'm not trying. Pokemon used to mean something, and now it's simply is not sure what it's trying to be anymore. Keep the core alive, Nintendo.


If you honestly cannot accept the fact that the orignial games are works of art, then I don't consider you a pokemon fan and you really have to learn to show some respect to the god father of gaming.


No more hate on what made us great.

So it's not trying to be a game about getting badges, beating bad guys, collecting them all, and playing with other people?

Coulda fooled me.

Answer: False

That being said, I still love the first gen. I love all gens. Some more than others, but I still love all of them.

False. A true Pokémon fan is one who sticks with the games past the original ones, no matter what direction the series takes.

Red and Blue were revolutionary for their time. They just don't meet today's standards. They have a strong place in gaming history, and I acknowledge that. But am I not a true Pokémon fan because I see that they haven't aged well? No. I'm a true Pokémon fan because I like the newer games and have stuck with Pokémon even when many haven't.
