Aren't Bronies like five steps up from Pokemon fans? Seems like it would be an improvement.


While the occasional flamewar over charizard and the like isn't my cup of tea(but very entertaining), neither are people who shoehorn MLP in everything they talk about.

Look at it this way. There is one side who originated from one of the best selling series in Japan, and the other originated from one kid raging about how TV is used to advertise toys(seriously, look it up. It's how the fandom came to be).


The infamous rant let people know it existed, but it's not what got people to watch it. The resume' of the show's creative director, Lauren Faust, is what got so many people interested in the beginning. A resume' that includes some of the best cartoons of the last twenty years.

I still find it funny how so many pokemon fans have issue with bronies. Pretty much every stigma(well except for "girly") and stereotype there is about bronies? It's a pretty common view on the Pokemon fanbase too. After all, this is one of those fanbase that actually churns out furry porn( and loli porn) even faster than the brony fandom.

I suppose the bronies are more open and loud about it, I guess?

But now the Pokemon X MLP stuff will be coming out in greater amounts. Can't wait to for that to happen.


Not necessarily. Disney and SE teamed up and there's no sudden influx of CloudxMickey Mouse porn. You know, that's what people tell me at least, I don't look at that stuff >_>


me neither... id prefer some caith sith/pluto goodies :))~

The news likely has to do with horses, the silhouette looks like a pony, the trademarked name has to do with horses.

I would personally jump ship to another franchise.


maybe if they included the sea ponies than id think about picking pokemon back up :) I LOVE ME SOME SEA PONIES!...tee-hee

SHOOOBEE-DOO SHOO BOO BEE DOO! Call upon the Sea Ponies! hehe anyones else have a fetish for "fireflys adventure" :P


Yes! They could even name one of the Sea Ponies some play on words about being a HORSE that lives in the SEA. That would be a wild idea for a pokemon.

So do I... I mean, every fandom creates NSFW content; I've heard this myself. A lot of the bronies I've met are actually quite nice people, and to be honest, although some bronies can get a bit over the top about the fandom, those are mainly the hardcore extremists, as far as I've seen. I suppose a lot of Pokémon fans find themselves unwilling to accept a different viewpoint to theirs. If you ask me, it doesn't matter what age or gender something's aimed for: if some think it good, then that's what they like.

I wish, but it probably won't happen.
