Cruising through Tropes, I remember they made a comment about a thread on here for this exact same topic a year or so ago. For your reading pleasure.
I find it funny when people scream how Pokemon is ruined when they are making millions of dollars at steady intervals. Nothing about Pokemon is ruined, and I doubt in the far future that anything about Pokemon will be ruined.
Sure there are things we dislike, but saying it was ruined is being plain wrong.
