Why?

When someone genuinely enjoys something, that harms no one, why can't they enjoy it? And why does it seem to differ from place to place what is acceptable to like?

I am 20, and Pokemon is really quite common around here. Most fans I know are actually older than I am.

Well, he just thinks I need to grow out of these childish games. I've been in love with pokemon since it first came out in 1995-96 and I never stopped the love coming. It's just a small passion and stress relieve of mine and it really is annoying when someone nags you about it EVERY SINGLE TIME they catch you playing.

That's no good, you'll end up losing weight.

I get annoyed when people claim they are into something but it turns out that they have just scratched the surface of the matter or they are inconsistent with it - like on and off with the hobby or whatever.

I probably won't either but, hah? I don't really get what you meant Touj haha, isn't it more like the other way around, when people say they love Pokémon and they only like 4th/5th gen? Cause that's something of "our" agegroup specifically because we grew up with the first few generations.

Ooh like that, yeah I guess I can see that. Even though I like the previous generations more I did play the newer games and I'm actively playing competitive so I'm all good hahaha.

Yeah at least you're aware of the newer games and are making a choice "I don't like them as much as the old ones", the people I'm talking about are the kind that latched onto Pokemon back when it was a fad and then drifted off when it stopped being a fad and haven't cared about it at all since then haha.

Yeah no that's annoying, I agree with you on that. I guess one of my former friends was like that, she played it because I did and we were friends at the moment and then she totally grew out of it when we stopped seeing eachother, but I can easily imagine her saying that she's a Pokémon fan just to.. have something incommon with me haha. Or however you'd describe that.

I completely understand what you guys are talking about, I could see some of my "friends" saying that, just to appear "cute" or cool, I suppose.

The people like that don't actually bother me that much. The ones that get to me are the Pokemon hipsters who hate on anyone who enjoys any of the games from Gen III on. If they don't enjoy the newer games, that's cool; if they don't have the time or money to pick up the newer games, but like to reminisce about how much they enjoyed the old games, that's cool too. It's when they try to tell you that the newer games are bad and that you should feel bad for liking them - that's what bothers me D:<

At least you don't have to deal with people in my age group not knowing what a Bulbasaur is. ALLOFMYRAGE.

Outside of forums, I've rarely had to deal with the "x generation is the best and z generation sucks" people. My group of friends who play Pokemon, we pretty much discuss all generations of the franchise. Though I admittedly check out of the conversation whenever the anime starts being discussed.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Each generation has its own good and bad points, and I for one am hard-pressed to call one a "favorite" or to say one is downright "horrible."

Everybody I know in real life is pretty much of the opinion that Gen 1 is good and the rest are crap. To be honest, it's just the sign of a casual Pokemon fan who can't be bothered changing with the times.

I can see where they're coming from with that, especially if they are not involved with Pokémon like we are atm (Pokémon forum etc) and didn't bother to play the games anymore as they grew up like most of us did, so it's sort of natural that they don't like the newer gens, which would in its turn prevent them from playing the games in the first place, so it's sort of a vicious cycle haha.

Haha, heard of them in the Pokémemes (I'm sorry I go on there ) But there's a lot of people who are like "hurrdurr gen1" and we call them genwunners. Everyone else is logical and believes that fact should go before personal opinion but somehow the genwunners have set up some sort of an alliance and now all we get are the "hurrdurr gen1"-type posts that make it onto the front page.

...Okay and you were saying?

I hate those Genwunners, they miss out on great opportunities to explore outside of Kanto.

I'm a true Pokefan, not a Pokefan who thinks the only Pokemon existing are the Original 151...

And yes, Pokememes is one of the best sites dumping memes about Genwunners. Here's some of my fave memes to do with 'em Genwunners:

Spoiler:

Everyone is looking forward to B2/W2... even me.


He's right, I don't hate any particular generation. But just like how there are Genwunners, there are Gentwoers, Genthreers, Genfourers and Genfivers. I'm a Genfiver cos I love most of the Unova Pokemon.


I'm with the 3rd line, I'm a true Pokefan.

Hope I can post this here. I'm just needing suggestions and advice on what I should do about his pants and belt, I haven't found much help searching online and if anyone has advice I'd appreciate it a ton.

This is regarding a Touya/Black cosplay. I was told it might be accurate to post here?

Best idea for the pants would be to buy a regular pair of the pants the same color as the primary color of his (best to get them at a thrift store, since you'll be altering them anyway), then buy material at a crafts store to make the smaller details of the pants.

Yeah. I thought this too, but I'm not sure what pants to buy as a nice base.

I'm sure the belt is simple enough to find in a clothing store though.

Why wont anyone hug Cloyster?

Just because he's not as cute as Clefairy or Jigglypuff doesn't mean he doesn't like to be hugged!

So the next time you go swimming, be sure to give a big, warm hug to any Cloysters that swim past

Gonna merge this into the DCC since it's died down a bit and this could expand a bit into which Pokemon you think is cute that others don't, which you would hug, etc.

I would hug a Volcarona even if it might burn me. :(
