Why on earth did everyone leave Pokemon forums to post on tumblr's?

Seriously, what the hell? The reason why so many regular users on the forums are gone now is because they've all moved from forums to tumblr's. Now I have to lurk all these goddamn different tumblr blogs just to interact with them instead of everyone easily posting in one place like a forum.

Seriously. And people still have these misinformed opinions on things that I have to debate about them with on these random tumblr blogs instead of on forums for everyone to see. Now only a small handful of people can read my rants instead of everyone on an entire forum, how disappointing! :O

Tumblr is the worst thing to happen to the internet, and I don't have one of my own (and probably never will), but now I'm going to secretly lurk all these tumblr blogs in regards to Pokemon and correct people on misguides opinions. Because that's how I've rolled on the internet for the last 10 years.

I never forget old fandom grudges. Never forget.

    Also there's a lot of Serena hate going on at certain tumblr's already because of her crush on Ash, look at this one:

    I wasn't ordered to. • b-b-b-but she’s not here to crush on Ash!

    I'm neutral about Serena at the moment, but you can see characters get the same dislike on tumblr's as on forums.
    We didn't say anywhere no character would get any hate, just that the atmosphere overall is a lot better.

    You know, like the people complaining about new pokemon designs or new characters simply because its not, "the good ol' days."

    The whining about Mega Charizard in the Origins special especially is ridiculous, especially since it was obvious that movie wasn't made for nostalgic pokemon fans, but to advertise XY.

    "For those who started with Pokemon Red and Pokemon Green... We present to you Pokemon The Origin!"

    It was made for nostalgic Pokemon fans to bring them back to the franchise, advertising XY at the same time.

    I see now people are posting that image of Serena blushing at Ash on as many tumblr's as possible. Ha, this will be amusing.

    I'd rather just send anon messages. I'm surprised people can figure out which ones are mine though, its not like others don't have similar opinions on various aspects of the Pokemon anime as myself. And as said, I don't even know what gotpika's tumblr is, so whoever sent him anon's isn't me.

    wouldn't it be easier to keep up with people's posts if you had them all conveniently on your dash? and couldn't you reassert your role as the fandom's angel of misguided information and justice if you established a visible identity on this site?

    i mean ur crying over everyone fleeing the forums and u being ignored, right?

    if you can't beat 'em...join 'em

    (actually, no...don't join, I'm actually enjoying a relatively stress-free fandom experience...I still have my youth and vitality...kinda)

    Here's a question for ya; if you have faith in the validity of your statements and criticisms, why do you have to hide as an anon?

    It's the only way to send messages on tumblr without having an account, although he could always say it's him.

    So someone can't have legitimate reason for preferring older series and characters over new ones with all of them being "blinded by nostalgia not seeing light"? Give new stuff chance but still enjoy more in things which happened before preferring different writing style, humor, battles or dynamic characters brought enjoying more in series when someone they liked more was around?

    I wish people who often accuse those which prefer old over new as being some "rabid genwunners which don't know for better" would realize how you can like something without being driven by nostalgia . Has it ever occured to those people how there are fans which genuinely like older stuff having valid reasoning for it?
    And if they respect preferences from people which enjoy more in newer seasons, who are we to derogate their opinions for liking older better?


    Being new=/=necessarily better. And vice versa.

    My assumption is that people who lost interest in Pokemon in general would have probably left the fandom years ago. I don't get why people continually follow new game or anime news if they weren't interested in the franchise.

    A lot of people only followed the first two gens and drifted out of Pokemon forever by about 2001 or so, you don't see those people complaining.

    @The Fighting Misty;

    I've been thinking about this for a while now, but how about we make a Skype chat for Bulbagarden users to discuss the anime? That way you wouldn't need to go on Tumblr to make a discussion or debate, but on Skype(which was released in 2003, before 2005).
    @Gotpika; What do you think?

    Hm...well it sounds like a nice idea, but I feel it has a bit of a dent in its armor...kinda feels like it would mainly pander to those with similar opinions to others on Bulbagarden Anime Section. I feel like a large amount of people would be excluded. If its discussion is centralized around the anime solely and its the anime section in live-action, I'm not sure what value it could have aside from what we usually get on the forums only on steroids with no mod intervention. I can't explain it specifically, but give it a go if you're up for it. Though I'm a bit cynical about the idea XP Sorry to be a downer. But if it can make Scott happy, make it, and all his opinions can be heard by all online at the time.

    Meh, I've never liked chatrooms either. Or skype.

    My only interest in the anime now is if Serena really does have something of a childhood crush on Ash. Not because I care about Ash shippings, but just because I'm really surprised the writers would do something like that again now that they know the female characters are expendable after each gen. Back when the show first started they could get away with it with Misty because the series was intended to end with Kanto. But to do something like that now, especially after May/Dawn/Iris didn't? Quite surprising I'd say.

    But as I said, since Contests aren't returning and Serena might not have any real goal (I don't count rhyorn racing, I doubt that will be expanded on), I guess this is all they can do.

    If anything I just want to see the shipping community explode. I miss the old-school shipping debates and would love to see it back in the show again.

    or maybe

    you know

    because of this format that allows you to express your thoughts and opinions in a safe(r) environment where only you and your friends hang out (i.e. tumblr or skype), the amount of shipping debates that pop up actually *gasp* decreased? because people are *gasp* more concerned with keeping good relations with their friends so they're more cordial and respect people's opinions more!!??

    or maybe the shipping community isn't as immature as you might think.

    View the Pokeproblems tumblr or the whining about Serena being a token trophy wife before XY even started. I already see people complaining about Serena and the character hasn't even debuted yet!

    I think the only positive tumblr is the Stage on one, mainly because I am Lu posts positive things about every character.

    I also secretly lurk some of the other ones but I haven't really posted to any of them, just read them.
