The newer pokemon get so much hate, I don't understand why. I myself like new over old.
Hold on there. While I agree that a lot of Gen 1 pokemon get a lot of praise, a lot of them get a lot of unnecessary hate like Muk and Voltorb.
People just don't get that Game Freak has changed their approach to pokemon since the days of Gen 1, partly because they had to. They can't make 10 different pokemon based on something simple, so they mixed designs. That doesn't make newer pokemon worse by any means. I personally prefer a lot more of the gen 1 and 2 designs than I do the newer ones, but there are also some new pokes I love like Absol, Oshawott, Excadrill, and Zoroark.
Not changing this sig until we get a new main series Tales game released on a Nintendo console in the US
