Pokemon fans are ungrateful.

I've been on several Pokemon forums for the past few months, enjoying being part of all the speculation about Black 2 and White 2. But I've noticed something that has seems to prove itself true time and time again...Pokemon fans, at least some of them, are just ungrateful.
I see countless posts about how dumb Game Freak is and how they don't know what they're doing, they're lazy, and more. Everything from the games to the anime, some people seem to be here only to point out every single flaw or mistake they find...or what they deem is a "flaw".
Black 2 and White 2 were so hyped that everyone was ready for their release. They get here...and it's "this sucks", just like every game they've ever made. I don't understand why. All I can figure is that because Game Freak didn't do what was expected or what people WANTED them to do, they decide it's crappy and horrible. Everything from Keldeo's form to the Zoroark bug to RSE remakes...there is no pleasing this fanbase at all. I heard for months that Keldeo needed a new form, one that everyone seemed to thing should make it an adult, which I thought made no sense. When they announced Resolution Form, I wasn't too thrilled, thinking that this form would be just as fans wanted: an adult Keldeo, which takes away from its role as the youngster of the swordsmen. But when the form was revealed, I was happy they didn't go that way. However, the fandom let loose their disappointment, while deciding that their previous hate for the Kami trio's Therian formes had faded away, now embracing them after complaining their original formes looked too similar and that the Therian formes were pointless and just as ugly. Now, with a new form to hate, the Kami trio was much more appreciated.
My point is this: if Game Freak can't do anything right, why are you buying their games? Why are you on forums promoting a product you think is crappy? Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but the way some people express those opinions comes across to me as someone who actually hates Pokemon altogether. Sure, no one is going to like EVERYTHING about Pokemon, but I've seen some people here that I have yet to see say ANYTHING positive about Pokemon at all.
I honestly feel bad for Game Freak. Maybe it's just today's generation of overly picky folks who can't accept something that isn't 100% the way they want it or think it should be. Or maybe people just love to hate. I don't know, and I'm sure it isn't exclusive to only Pokemon, but it just seems that these days even people who call themselves "Pokemon fans" actually hate Pokemon.
