Ok people, keep on commenting on this blog post [url]http://bmgf.bulbagarden.net/blogs/52188/christian-rants-bs-reasons-clame-who-can-cant-enjoy-pokemon-51891/[/url] - i will start a cause soon and the coments on that blog post will help me, the more the merrier. anyway to this rant
I've seen posts in various media saying things like "the unova pokemon (i go by region because genoration numbers confuse me and i go by anime not games) suck." or "If you want true pokemon then go back to the kanto pokemon." Look, i do not hate the kanto pokemon, i love them a lot, and like most people on this cite, grew up with them and the Johto pokemon. I'm guilty of trying to collect al the Kanto and Orange Islands episodes (going to order the box sets soon) and i'm guilty of having all the original kanto pokemon cards as well as an Azumarill and Magby from Johto. (is togepi johto or kanto?) as such, i can say i'm a fan of the original kanto 151 pokemon. But it doesn't mean that i think that the Sinnoh and Unova pokemon and anime suck. Given that Dawn is dumb and unlikable and iris calls ash a kid too freaking much, the anime is still good though dispite those elements. and i do admit, the 4kids dub has always been my favorite, but the pusa/tpci dub has a whole lot of marets. i digress. Anyway i don't like people using these reasons for bashing the Sinnoh and unova pokemon: (they're not diret quotes all of them, some may be but some may not)
1. they aren't original. - what do you mean by "original?" do you mean it's not from kanto? do you mean that it's been done before in pokemon? I know, you're probibly thinking of the pikachu similarities, but let's keep in mind the high status that Pikachu's been given, so that is why they make remakes or similarities. they're not clones though, you want a pikachu clone, look at Pikachutwo, the clone that mewtwo had created.
2. "it's shit!"- because? how and why? they don't state other than saying it's not like the kanto pokemon.
Ok, look, contrary to what Highschool musical may say, it's not always good to stick to the status quo (hsm can't even pronounce the word status properly) because if you remain in a loop for ever, it gets monotonous and boring, not to mention unoriginal, and just plane unwatchable after 50 years of exactness. If pokemon wants to start a new genoration, then we as pokemon fans should be glad that it's continuing on, rather than saying that it's shit withouth stating why. (i mean with a rational reason, not that it's "not kanto pokemon.") so no, don't stick to the status quo (or as highschool musical says, "the stats quo" [English disney do you speak it?]) a big franchise such as pokemon needs to be creative in order to maintain it's fans and it's status both in the anime and video game world. a status that it has had sinse the 90s. to me, i think the Unova pokemon are perfectly fine thank you very much. some pokemon are lame, but others are cool. the same with Kanto and Johto pokemon. There are the lame ones like Majicarp, then there are the epic and powerful ones like Gyarados and Lugia just as there are epic ones from Unova like Haxorus. so i personaly don't see the reasons behind the arguments they make about the unova and sinnoh poks being "shit" because simply, they don't state good enough reasons.
In the comments, can someone please try to at least help me understand them? or even just state your views on my rant, and the Unova and Sinnoh pokemon in general. and if you don't like them, please don't say "because they're not kanto." because that's not a good reason. thanks. note that i am not a hsm or disney hater.
