My this question is possibly the best ever made...

I. Hate. The. Newbies. Seriously they talk like they played pokemon since 1996 (Oh sorry, 1997. I go by the actual release date.) and bash the past generations to be the worse, and claim this generation games are the best. News flash: Generation 1 will ALWAYS be considered the best by a true pokemon fan. Without generation 1 pokemon would've NOT exist.

Oh but they do love arguing with that theory...

Other than that, I've adapted to the hackers. They may return, they may not. I mainly hate the new fanbase is all. I enjoy conversing with the older fanbase.

Oh and don't get me wrong, Gen 6 IS awesome... but to bash the first generation that brought pokemon c'mon. It's the fricken 90's.


Never met a real-life Genwunner before.

I do liek how you talk like you're the ONLY person in the world who's played Pokemon since Gen 1 and no other opinion on Gen 1 matters but your own. </sarcasm>

On topic, 3 things:
- the fanbase on Gyarados(already overpowered by itself yet they want to give it even MORE power constantly: a new evolution, a new typing, more WMDs etc.) and Lance (the only Champion I'm not impressed by. Heck, I think WALLACE is better than that Hacker)
- the fanbase when they become "srs bzs" and http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/StopHavingFunGuys
and consider multiplayer and Smogon as THE game to play and nothing else.
- the Gen 2 fanbase who considers it (and by extension HGSS) the best Pokemon games ever when the games are as flawed as every other gen or even worst

Are you really calling me childish, and then threatening me on the internet at the same time?


Did this really just happen?

Not to mention he has pure ignorance. Pretty much everyone here HAS played since the beginning red/blue. You're not special in the slightest for playing since the beginning. This is a dedicated internet message board for Pokémon, not a facebook Pokémon group. You have to be pretty ignorant about Pokémon and know nothing about the fanbase if you think the majority here didn't play from the beginning. It usually stems from playing Pokémon up to gen 2 or 3, quitting when it became "uncool" and then resuming in college after nostalgia hits and they realize nobody cares about being cool anymore.

I think what he doesn't get is that most of the people hating on genwunners are people who started from the beginning but stuck with the series instead of giving it up like a non fan.
A lot of hypocrisy can be found in his statement as well. He claims he's both stable and he hates the "newbies" but he's making the "if this was real life, I'd beat you up" kind of statements that newbies of the internet and mainly 12 year olds make. What a joke.

Generation 1 will ALWAYS be considered the best by a true pokemon fan. Without generation 1 pokemon would've NOT exist.

Worse kind of nostalgia goggles there are. Being the original means nothing about the quality. The original Legend of Zelda is nowhere near as good as most of its sequels, Resident Evil 1 is generally seen as less great as Resident Evil 2, Super Mario Bros 1 isn't as indepth as Super Mario Bros 3. Genwunners are blinded and have no logic. Also, what does the 90s have to do with anything? Because it was the time of your childhood? Nostalgia goggles are strapped on very tight.

I mainly hate the new fanbase is all. I enjoy conversing with the older fanbase.


lol, now you're just delusional. There is no "new" fanbase. Pretty much everyone here has played since the beginning and even if not, there's nothing wrong with starting it later. That's some pretty moronic elitism right there. The only possible "older fanbase" you're talking about are stuck in the past genwunners who aren't fans of Pokémon, they're fans of their nostalgia.

Elitism, both casual and competitive.

The casual elitists are infuritating because theyre usually ignorant of many aspects of the game, yet somehow feel they are fit to judge the games and how they are played at the highest levels. And instead of doing the research and looking to better players for the reasoning and justifications for certain aspects of the game, they quickly jump to the "its broken", or "its cheap" or "this isnt how the game is meant to be played" responses that do nothing but reveal thier ignorance.

Competitive elitism is annoying on a whole different level. Unlike your typical casual elitist who lacks the knowledge to really pass any judgement, the competitive elitist does - and makes sure youre aware of that at every turn. Even when its not even necessary. Its nothing more than ego boosting at times.

The people who believe the Japanese names are superior to the English names, and rub their opinion on your face. They also say things like, "Glory to the land of the rising Sun!", "I watch so much anime, I'm practically Japanese!"

The people who tell you the "proper" way to play the game regardless if playing it that way has a negative effect on others or not. Unless it is during an official tournament and only in that specific tournament.

The people who look down on you for playing a certain way that doesn't fit the creator's ideal.

THE PEOPLE WHO TROLL THE GLOBAL TRADE STATION!!!

The people who can't accept you like a certain game/gen the best on the grounds it has flaws.

IV/EV trainers

Those of us who want to battle other trainers seem to have no chance if we don't or can't IV breed. This should've never been implimented in the game.

@ chaos

Hey moron, that's how most people "operate" on gamefaqs. No ones opinions matter but your own. You new here or seriously trying to die hard troll?

Oh guess he's not the only one trying to bash me. Apparently you need to "read" my posts before trying to comment .-.

Lol and no where in my posting does it claim i would beat the previous poster up. I'm stating a fact on how "some" other people would attempt this idea. Again, learn how to read.

the hackers. also the scammers. and the wondertrade whiners.
dont have no problem with people who want to use cute pokemon, but i don't like those that completely ignore any logic when assessing how good a pokemon is (like if they base it on anime appearance or how the name sounds)

loving the furries and the people drawing the porn though
