Not long ago I made a post about some cretin plagiarizing Nico and posting an image of his on Pokémemes, but it seems once wasn't enough, because, well, look at this. That... kind of pisses me off even though it's not my stuff.
The crazy thing is, look at the like/dislike ratio for something that's, for anyone who's been playing Pokémon for a while, the unquestionable truth. Either it hits too close to home for some people who don't want to admit it, or they're just putting their head in the sand and pretending it's not true.
Like this Memebase commenter, for example. Holy crap so much stupid. Where do I start? Claiming gen 6 is the best DESPITE IT NOT BEING OUT YET? Remember how the trailers made Other M look so awesome to most people (though I was really suspicious from the word go), and then it came out and it was the worst insult anyone could possibly make to a series? What's preventing it from happening with any other game, even X/Y? Granted, it's almost certainly going to blow the rest of the series away anyway, but passing judgement on a game before it's even out is absolutely stupid.
Then this twit chooses to argue over THE COLORS USED IN THE CHART. A chart that, mind you, was probably a fifteen-minute job, maybe even less. I have no words. It's not meant to be artistic, you numbskull. And then, "not everyone adores Hoenn and loathes Sinnoh". Taken word for word, that's true, but it's not the point of this chart. It's meant to highlight the ridiculous shifts in preferences of the Pokémon fanbase as a whole, where Hoenn went from franchise-destroyer (for those who weren't around back then, this really was how Ruby and Sapphire were perceived when they first came out) to getting entirely too much praise once we started getting regions that outdid it in every way - and said regions just don't get their fair share of praise. Until a few generations later when even better regions come by, and the cycle continues.
Let's be honest here: denying what this chart says is like denying the Zelda cycle exists. It may not be a universal thing, sure (I liked Wind Waker and Twilight Princess when they were new, and I like Skyward Sword despite the horrible controls, gasp!), but in fanbases this big, this vocal, and dare I say this devoid of anything resembling logic, you're bound to see weird patterns like this.
Sorry, I went on entirely too long about this, but this is what happens when I get mad. Can we get our oxygen back?
