My opinion on the meaning of Genwunner

#1henriuePosted 10/8/2013 3:29:56 PM
If you liked the first gen, and continue to enjoy pokémon, you are not a genwunner
If you liked the first gen, and dislike the series as it is, you are not a genwunner
if you liked the first gen and never played another game since because the series does not appeal to you anymore, you are not a genwunner.

If you liked only the first gen, oversaw little information about a posterior pokémon game but never played it, and yet judge it as crap, and gave up the series as a whole because of this, you are a genwunner.

This is what I believe in, and what I was told.

The true definition of genwunner - and this is not a matter of opinion - is someone who claims to love the first (and maybe second) generation of Pokémon while bashing all later gens, typically for doing the exact same things the first two gens did.

The bashing is important! No bashing of later gens = not a genwunner.

So you're mostly right, TC.
