Seriously. This is how the Pokemon fandom works:

New Pokemon revealed? It's stupid, unoriginal, it "doesn't look like a Pokemon", and that GameFreak should just stop.
Eventually, the new Pokemon is considered okay.
Once all the new Pokemon are shown, everyone thinks that they're all stupid, unoriginal, "they don't look like Pokemon", and that these are the worst Pokemon to date.
A few months later, or once the games are released, everyone thinks that the new Pokemon are the best, and if you don't like them, you're a nostalgia whore. The only new Pokemon that still get hate are the ones that actually are original (Vanilluxe and Garbodor).

That's just the new Pokemon cycle. Now we're going into competitive play.

Are you using Pokemon that you actually like, and not just the best competitive Pokemon? Get out.
Are you not using Pokemon/teams/strategies/moves/items that everyone and their dog uses? lol ur team sux, y arent u using this, get out.
Smogon bans a Pokemon/item/move/ability? Complain to no end about it. But if you blaspheme Smogon? People say you don't know anything about Smogon. Get out.

But wait, there's more! There's still the general fanbase!

You don't like the Pokemon that everyone else likes? Heresy! Get out.
You're only allowed to like gen 3, 4, and 5. God forbid that you prefer gen 1 and 2. If you do, you're a nostalgia whore. Get out.

There is a thin line between success and failure. After all, success sounds a lot like sucks ass.

Because I don't really have anything better to do. Even then, I usually stay on other boards.

That about sums it up. This board is particularly hostile and generally more unfriendly than any other board i post on. Could be that the pokemon fanbase are overall younger but could just be that pokemon attracts a more immature audience
