You know what I noticed about these "Genwunners"?

Nearly 95% percent of their "arguments" revolve around the designs of the Pokémon themselves, while completely ignoring the OTHER advances we've made form Gen 1. Breeding, the splitting of the Special stat, abilities, the physical-special split, and of course, graphical advancements.

Of course. They have virtually no argument, so they resort to something like design when most of it is better than what they're defending. Just look at fritz.

The one exception (which wasn't necessarily a "Genwunner", just someone who hated X/Y) that I can remember is when someone said they hated X/Y because they're in 3D. As if he still expects people to make 2D games anymore.

Yeah....Genwunner = people who claim there's no way the current generation will ever be better than gen 1-2 and tries their hardest to make sure other people don't forget it, even though in the long run they end up sounding like self-important babies.

even more ridiculous than that - and i mean ridiculous to the point of being actually funny - is how some ppl had their head stuck in their *** to the point of complaining that the new games were gonna be released for the 3DS instead of being kept in a dead system (DS) just because they couldn't afford or simply didn't want to buy (usually because they didn't even consider the 3DS a new console but a simple upgrade from the original DS) the latest console.

even though i don't hear anyone complaining about that anymore there was a considerable amount of ppl doing so before (new gen versus gen3 remakes speculation period) and right after X/Y were officially announced.

Everybody knows the game itself has evolved a lot since the first generation, so it's not really worth mentioning.
The objection is to the character design, not the core mechanics. That's why people always complain about, get this,
the character design.

Pretty much this.

I enjoy a lot of first gen designs, but I feel the series improved overall.

I did the opposite, I complained that the fifth generation was going to be on a dying system (DS) instead of the new one (3DS). Prior to the fifth one, every new generations were released on a new system. RGBY were on GB, GSC were on GBC, RSE and FRLG were on GBA, DPP and HGSS were on DS and BW and BW2 were on DS again instead of 3DS.
