Because there are only 150 different species of animals in real life.

Just ask anyone.

They assume that having more Pokemon means having more BAD Pokemon. They're right, to an extent: The more Pokemon they have, the more likely they are to have a bad design or Pokemon, simple statistics.

Where they make the logic leap off the deep end is where they assume that having some bad ones contaminates the good ones. Now why does that happen? Well, no one likes to think of themselves as a hater. If you genuinely dislike something (meaning, you're not just a troll) you think there's a good reason for you NOT to like it,even if you can't put it into words, there's a definite reason for your hatred.

It's possible that these guys who hate new Pokemon are thinking that with the addition of each bad Pokemon, there's a greater chance people who already hate, dislike, or are at least neutral about Pokemon, will see these bad ones and see that as a reason to stay away from the franchise. So for the good of the entire franchise, only good Pokemon should exist. With the old? You know what you've got. With the new? It's new. It's unknown. It's getting attention, therefore it's polarizing. If a SINGLE bad Pokemon is revealed, it could drive fans away, polarize newcomers, etc.

So they might think that by hating on and trying to discourage new Pokemon, they're helping the franchise. Protecting it.

Or maybe they're just looney. No telling.

They're probably just looney. Remember, the first of every generation usually sells the most because, *surprise* the new Pokemon.
