Why do people say Pokemon died after the first/second generation?

I simply don't understand the reasoning behind that.

Or they want to sound cool. It's funny to flame them after that.

No no they were right.

251 of the little buggers died after the second generation.

Gen 3 took many steps back from gen 2 such as no backwards compatibility and the loss of the day/night system. A lot of players quit after gen 2. Not to say later generations don't have their merits, but I remember being disappointed in gen 3. I wouldn't say pokemon died, but there's a good reason the first two generations are favorites for some.

I think that is only true for the anime.

After Gen III happened, folks didn't think that the series would become good again.

Because they have a serious case of nostalgia. They simply couldn't get past Gen 3's lack of backwards compatibility.
