    I only accept Pokemon up to 3rd generation due to nostalgia and art!

    OTHERS DON'T EXIST!

    Nostalgia is a sign of an unhealthy mental state.

    Just saying.

    Wrong.

    I simply don't care for the new generations.
    Then again, I stopped really caring for Pokemon when I was about 15-16 or so, but before that I played it quite avidly on the GBA.

    Up until Ruby/Sapphire.

    If you simply not care about them then why do you need to write "THEY DON'T EXIST!!!!!!!!!!!!" in an online forum? Well there's two possibilities.

    1. You actually do care
    2. You're just a troll

    You never heard of a joke did you? -_-

    It was written in a humorous way, but apparently people didn't get that.

    Why are you so extremely serious.

    Years of people going to Pokemon fan sites/threads just to announce how they're some sort of "purist" who only aknowledges the first generation(s) and calls the others crap puts us on the defensive when it comes to that. Not saying it's what you intended, but you can see where he's coming from.

    The intention was for somebody to say something like: they do exist.

    Then I could segway into a : LALALALALALA *cover ears*

    But honestly, why is the artwork not as it used to be.

    There is a huge difference between generations. The newer ones look wacky most of the time.

    I hate to use this old tired argument again, but... that's nostalgia at work.

    When you look at it objectively and compare each generation side by side, you'll easily see that for the most part, old ones were just as wacky as new ones. People really like to look at Garbodor and go "LOL TRASH" while simultaneously ignoring Muk. That's just one example out of many that my brain just can't remember right now.

    Not that, I know old ones have wacky pokemon too, but then you look at articuno for example and zapdos and moltres. All serious legendaries.
    Old ones had wacky too, like Lickitung, but MOST of the new ones are wacky, I guess that's what I mean.

    Are you gonna tell me that Palkia and Dialga don't look like "serious" legendaries? Or motherfucking Zekrom?

    I love me some Articuno (probably my favorite pokemon), but honestly, I put some recent pokemon up there in terms of coolness, some of them not even legendary.

    It goes both ways. Older generations have wacky pokemon, serious pokemon, ugly ones, badass ones. They also have puny legendaries such as Mew or Celebi. Newer ones have wacky pokemon, serious ones, ugly, badass, and -wait for it- legendaries such as the lake trio that are pretty comparable to Mew (except in you know, power).

    Anyway, can we please just kill this subject? It's been discussed to death already, and this thread isn't even 300 pages long

    The only legendaries I like are Articuno, Moltres and Zapdos. All other legendaries are lame, lookswise, to me.

    Now I think that there are some awesome "normal" pokemon in the latest generations, but enough lame ones or ones with lame names. Not that Ekans or Arbok are very good names, though, but the icecream pokemon (Vanillish, Vanillite, Vannillux or something) and the gear pokemon (Klink, Klang and Klinklang) are so... stupid (both names and looks).

    I don't mind them at all. They're not among my favorites, but they aren't that bad. And they're like 1000 times better than some of the gen 1 Pokemon.

    If I remember correctly Ice isn't that great a type (except for an offensive team).

    I like them but I'd like to find them in snowy areas instead of lush meadows though. :3
