Pokémon / Something I've Noticed
« on: July 22, 2010, 03:22:40 AM »
I've noticed several people on almost all fansites who hate Generation V Pokémon already. I've also noticed that several people hate Generation IV Pokémon. Most of them don't even give a particular reason, and when they do have one, it rarely goes beyond "They're not enough like Generation III."

Similar things are happening in the Anime. Two months ago, at least on one site(which will go unnamed), Dawn was hated almost unanimously. Now that the new female character has been leaked, the same people are demanding that Dawn not be replaced. During her period of hate, nearly all of it was on the basis of "She isn't anything like May." And during Generation III, May was hated for not being Misty.

Now, I'm a relatively new fan, so enlighten me. Is there some law that states that anything new is automatically cr*p, and the thing it replaced was better than anything that came before it, regardless of opinion of it before? Because that's the only reason I can think of that would explain this.
