Anytime I hear any Gen 5 hate, it’s always about “the ice cream Pokemon” and “the trashbag Pokemon”
156 new Pokemon and you don’t want to play the game because of 2?
How sad of a person do you have to be to let something so tiny ruin a whole game or series for you?
Not to mention heartless.
Look at these adorable critters
How you could hate something so precious is beyond me.
I’ll never like Trubbish, but anyone who hates Gen 5 is probably also defending the generation that gave us slime with a face
And a Pokeball with a face
And let’s not forget the hoard of pink eggs
the bumpy rock with arms
and the mine filled with noxious gases.
Gen 5 gets alot of hate over its Pokemon designs, but Gen 1 has a bunch of Pokemon that aren’t exactly “spectacular” either. Yet I hardly ever see anyone calling out the mediocre Pokemon from Gen 1, only spreading hate on Gen 5.
Which sucks, because I love Gen 5 and Unova :C
ash are you fucking serious right now
Reminder that this is supposed to be a children’s show and not all kids are gonna know or remember what Charmander is.
Man, people are so quick to jump onto the “Let’s insult the show and the main character’s intelligence for something that could be easily explained, instead of stopping for for one freaking minute and trying to understand why something like that happened!” wagon.
Like, what the hell.
Kids who watch the newer series of Pokemon might not recognize the older-gen Pokemon, so Ash /has/ to look them up on the Pokedex. It’s not fair to the younger viewers if they don’t explain what Charmander is, because they “assume” everybody already knows it. :|
Also, in the Pokeverse, Ash is filling up his brand new, blank with no Pokemon data Unova Pokedex. He’s just getting the Charmander’s data for Professor Juniper.
Sorry, but anyone who thinks Ash that “forgot what a Charmander is” is pretty ignorant themselves. > . > If you watch the newest opening theme for Pokemon BW, they show a scene of Tracy, Prof. Oak, Ash’s Mom and all of Ash’s Pokemon standing in Professor Oak’s yard. That’s right, EVERY SINGLE ONE of his Pokemon. The anime staff didn’t forget. The Pokemon dev team didn’t forget. It’s just the overly-sensitive “fans” who misinterpret everything they don’t like in the new generations.
Edit: Also, people who have watched this episode said that Ash spends the rest of the episode reminiscing about his own Charizard, remembering all the things they went through and all the times they have spent together. That’s pretty touching.
Meanwhile, I still see people reblogging this with comments like “omfg ash is so stupid” and “wow how could he forget his own damn pokemon that retard”.
oh god new pokémon starters look so stupid
you are wrong and you should feel wrong
oh hey cool the new generation of neopets
- Neopets are awesome and many of them have wonderful designs
- you’re wrong if you don’t like them
People hating on the new gen more like stop. It happens every single time a new one comes out because ‘the old gens are better’. Just stop.
Right??? Nostalgia actually doesn’t do anything for you. Like, objectively? Red and Blue are pretty bad games.
They’re full of glitches, the types aren’t balanced at all, there’s no female protagonist, the designs are pretty uninspired for the most part, the map is pretty confusing and to this day I always accidentally beat sabrina fifth instead of sixth, it takes forever to get across said map, and like, over all, 2/10 would not play again. It was revolutionary for its time but the games have moved on and become 10000% more playable and people blindly hating on the newer generations because of nostalgia are stupid and missing out.
Reblogging for that last comment. I agree wholeheartedly.
