Is it just me or have fans became less attached to characters over time?
I remember back in day when Misty or May left cast how most people were disappointed, sometimes even shocked being sad to see their favorites go. Likewise whenever there was made tread about it in past majority was more welcomed toward their return than not wanting to see more, feeling how past companions weren't fleshed out as much as they could have been with there being left room to do much more. Which in reality is true because almost everyone story was left unresolved having potential to do more.
Naturally its needed to take in account how today one of reasons why people don't react same anymore about character replacing and constant cycling, is because they got used to it already knowing what is show policy growing to accept it.
But its not only that, back than judging by debates from veterans which left bulbgarden long time ago, fans seemed more passionate and emotional when discussing characters they like. They felt more invested in whole thing.
Nowdays everything feels static with most people seeming indifferent like they could care less. This can be noticed in not so long ago departures with Brock or Dawn with majority being stoic and completely neutral about it. On contrary people seemed more happy to see their back on door, and mindset which today prevails is more along the lines of being against older character returns which can be evidenced by threads made about it.
Its like fanbase became fed up with show and characters in general.
Its like people forgot how to enjoy in pokemon anime and characters anymore, only complaining and missing on reasons and everything good because of which they used to enjoy in it before.
I could be very well wrong, but on bulbagarden you can easily get such impression.
