What the heck is going on with all these people hating on the new pokemon and complaining about it?!
ENOUGH. Stop doing it on my deviations too.

I don't give a crap if you hate the new starters or if you think the first 151 pokemon were the best. If you have nothing nice to say then WHY bother?! Also what is the point of complaining to me about it, I didn't design them!! Why do people chose to fill their lives with so much hate, why not fill it talking about things you DO like, and stop trying to ruin everyone's elses' fun.

For the record I DON'T think the 1st gen was the best, in fact it's my least favourite, and it's probably nintendo's least favourite too! It was like their first try at doing things, when there were loads of limitations and restrictions like space and colours. They weren't able to design things like they wanted to, to have as much variety and colour as they would like.

It's filled with stupid things like rocks with arms, and brown anime rats. Don't even get me started on how many stupid designs there were in the first gen!

How can you call yourself a pokemon fan if you don't accept change and learn to appreciate things? I don't love all new pokemon, no one is asking you to, but stop reacting so badly geez! If you don't like them at all don't get the game!
And certainly don't make your mind up after seeing ONE trailer. You've seen FIVE designs!!
We saw them for the first time YESTERDAY. Everything takes time to get used to, I hated loads of pokemon when I first saw them that I now love dearly.

Ok rant over but plz stop spouting loads of swearwords and hate towards the new gen on my art ok? You can complain here all you want for all I care!

To be honest; the new starters and XY-legends are far from disappointing! I mean come on, it feels like so much thought and effort were put into them.

When I watch the trailer I felt like Nintendo gave me a brown paper package wrapped up in string (obv ref is obv lol); when I removed the string and opened the package I saw another gift-box, except multicoloured, beautifully wrapped in complicated loops and twirls and all; and when I managed to unwrap it it was full of squee and good things!

Kyle, I consider myself pretty straight forward in general, but even I couldn't put it as briskly as you just have. These are my exact thoughts about every generation. It's sound and fury signifying nothing.

You go!

Haha thanks. I'm glad for the support.
I'm not as annoyed as I was at the time but geez some people take it too far.

Flattery doesn't work when it involves putting the work of others down. It's like the high school tactics of putting people down to gain favor in the social caste system.

Aww, I totally agree. I remember when I played a gen 2 game for the first time and I thought Suicune was the stupidest thing I've ever seen, but now it's one of my favourites. And when gen 3 came out, I hated everything about it, though now it's arguably my favourite.

People have been screaming for a fully 3D portable game ever since Diamond and Pearl. I don't have a 3DS and it'll probably be a couple of years before I get my hands on one, but I'm still STOKED.

RockCandyFireworks Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2013  Student
it's totally the hipster pokemon mentality. "omg i only like pokemon's early work. they totally sold out."

UM if you hated everything since gen 1 WHY ARE YOU STILL TALKING ABOUT POKEMON YEARS LATER??? people are idiots. the internet is the worst. lol

personally, i love the new designs, but i'm easy to please and have pretty much loved every gen and every game. after designing my own fakemon, i realize how dang hard it is, which is why i have so much respect for people who do it well! plus, the target audience is children so if you don't like it shut up, because it's not really made with you in mind anyway. the creators don't owe the fans anything except to keep working hard.

From what I've seen of Pokemon X and Y, it looks great the only things I need to in order to play the game is, get a 3Ds and the game.
OnlineAgent Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2013
All gens had some good and bad pokemon, but it's really the 'boring' ones that make the more unique ones stand out. Can't believe people would give -you- grief over this..
Nicku Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
The only thing I REALLY don't like is the 3d thing which made me quite sad to be honest.. I like sprites better ... Also no 3gen remake before this was a little letdown as well, but ah, I guess nobody really likes that region anyway?
Besides that I think it's fine, I don't get why poke fans hate new things so much
doggygirl356 Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I never understood why Gen1wunners were so... overly attached, it's so frustrating, especially those who are all ''OMFG THEY DONT EVEN LOOK LIKE POKEMONG SDAFSDGFSDFASDASFDFFDFASDASDA'' ''GameFreak should put their creaitivty somewhere else'' and the most gear grinding one, ''They should just stop now...they're getting less and less original''. People don't decide what a stereotypical Pokemon is, the Pokemon company, and especially Satoshi is the one who does. I, for one, have a lot of respect for the Pokemon character designers for coming up with now 800+ ORIGINAL characters that no one else, in the world has done yet.

But then again the ones who truly piss me off the most, are those who complain that the new games are lacking more and more and they just don't feel it anymore, yet they still buy the new games all the time, play it, trade and battle, but complain every single day about it.

I honestly don't get how someone can want to play something over and over and over and over again, I so look forward to new regions and new Pokemon to understand, know about and learn, the fact that these kind of people want remakes of Red and Blue over and over and over again is just sickening.

I fully agree with what you said as well, Gen 1 leaves such a bad taste in my mouth since a long time ago, I've played it SO much that I can't possibly find joy in playing it any more, even if it was to be remade. There are still Pokemon from Gen 1 that I absolutely love, but other than that...

People need to ease up on the hate, hating and bashing and 'trying' to bring down Pokemon isn't gonna work, I really hope Pokemon keeps going 'til Gen10 and maybe more.

This kind of behaviour is expected every new generation. >.>;

Sorry to hear those comments are flooding into your art. That's really irritating.
ztak1227 Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2013  Student Filmographer
People like to bitch. It's unfortunate, but your anger is totally warranted. And I'd have to agree with your opinion; the first generation is probably the weakest in terms of concept. RSE/DPPt will probably always be my favorites for this reason. I felt a lot more life coming out of the regions' Pokémon and I really think this was when Nintendo was starting to come out of it's shell a little bit more and have a bit more fun with the creative process.
PipChibiTea Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2013
Personally I'd have to say first/Second gen was my favorite simply because it was mostly all natural pokemon... Lol if that makes sence XD but I don't think because it's my favorite that the new one sucks. I think Pokemon must be doing something right is it's done a billion games and can keep going! I don't get why all these people hate it so much but still look at it! I agree with you yo! Why they keep getting mad on your deviations I'll never know. Personally it's almost like people are hating on it cuz they feel it's the "cool" thing to do. I don't know. I'm excited to see what they have in mind for us!!!!!
SupahGassy Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
i hate people like that. people who complained about gen 5 designs like Trubbish and Vannillite have not looked back at the stupid shit that has been here FOREVER. Magnemite evolves into 3 more of him combined... what. stupid. Diglett does the same shit.... WHY DUGTRIO WHY. Geodude is a friggin rock with arms and don't even get me started on Jynx and Mr.Mime.... UGHH
Every generation has it's flaws but honestly they have a lot of good parts. To be honest i think this is gonna be my favorite gen yet... Yveltal and Xerneas just look friggin BADASSSS and Chespin is too qt. And they're all in 3D?! LOVE IT. Pokemon is breaking traditions and changing. People have to learn to accept that or they're just gonna wallow in the fact that not everything is "GEN ONE" Screw the haters.... I don't see how people be hatin on Gen 6 THEY STILL STUCK IN KANTO.

lydario Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2013
Trust me, a rant this impassioned is never the result of one person's comment. Back when I was immersed in pokemon, I got the same feedback in waves. "Your pokemon are so much better than generation x". The only difference now, is that generation x is no longer a placeholder, but an actual generation of pokemon.
AmericanGirlHope Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I wasn't saying I was the only person, I'm just wondering if any of my comments could have been one of the ones being referred to.
Sangcoon Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Agreed. Its stupid coz thats what they said when gen 5 was coming out. Honestly, if they really cared for pokemon, theyd be more welcoming.
Alraune-Oblongata Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2013
My fave is third and I don't like the 4th generation (The Lucario Generation, as I think).

People don't like fast change, because, think with me: 1st generation is very simple, with a lot of commom Pokémon that really looks like real animal, and 5th gen has an Ice-cream Pokémon (I like Vanillite, I see no problem, as the humans could design a dessert based on the Pokémon - a natural process of human creation: having a base to create). Another reason is very important: They were child/young when 1st gen. came around, they grew with it, it's part of their memory, and having another generations is like fighting with their memories. They are not kids anymore, they tend to not like "child" things that are new, but "child" things that are from their ages.

It's all that psychological bullshit from the "adults" and "matures" of today. That hate is a response from fearing the memories from the childhood being erased, or forgotten.

It's late here, so it might be all bullshit... Who cares? D:
Assassannerr Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I love all pokemon! I think these ones are way good. I think my least favorite was fifth though. the starters i mean. I sure hope froakie doesn't have a simaler evo line as oshawott. So far he is my fav!

Otter - Otter - ???(Dog thing)???

I like all pokemon i just would like to see the best out of everything.

lydario Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2013
You see that's the problem. Pokemon concepts often entail a great deal of subtlety, and are never so straight forward. You can't appreciate a design when you make up your mind as soon as you see it.
Assassannerr Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I have no problem with it, I thought it was awesome (all the Gens are) all i was saying is 5th gen was my least favorite of all of them (I have a right to my own opinion) 5th gen was awesome, just in my opinion "Not-as awesome" as some of the others.

This 6th generation is looking up to be a good game.

the main problems I had with 5th gen was the mainly the strange evolution change of Oshawott (Not that important i just didn't like it I have a right to think so) and the fact the early dex entree of Solosis (one of its evos) was supposed to be the Fetus pokemon... and that was later changed.

Ive been playing Pokemon sense Gold, and I like every generation, I dislike none. I just like some gens more then others.
lydario Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2013
Reminding me multiple times that you are entitled to your opinion is really not necessary. All I am doing is warning you not to be so dismissive of things when you don't understand them.

Samurott isn't my favorite either, at all. But it certainly didn't let it ruin gen V for me.
Assassannerr Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That's what I'm trying to tell you, It didn't ruin it for me. I was just mentioning a simple thing. I thought Gen V was really cool. It just wasn't my over all favorite.

I'm super excited for gen 6 and I've probably known about it for less than 12 hours! Personally, I was not a huge fan of gen 5, but I did give it an honest try, I beat the Elite 4 on Black. Just because it's new doesn't mean it's bad! My first game was Sapphire and I get really mad when people hate on gen 3, or any generation because honestly it's all pokemon. They're giving us more games when they could have stopped, so we should be nothing but grateful *humph*
~anywho~ very excited for x and y :D
dirorodono Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
I totaly agree with you that the first gen was the worst. I like chespin but its not the best starter but its one of the most unique. Froakie by the ways is in my opinion ewwww.
dirorodono Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
I agree with you that the 1st gen was by far the worst. I haven't seen all of the new gen's pokemon so i can't say i don't like it.
Sunnycat17 Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2013  Student Digital Artist
I love and hate pokemon throughout all the generations. That doesn't mean I'm gonna complain about the ones I hate. The reason for there being such a damn huge variety of pokemon in the FIRST place is for the sake OF variety. There are over a *understatement idk* million people who love to play this game, and said million people love variety of choice.
But nobody should come complaining to Kyle when he has no choice in the design. I love Pikachu from gen 1, but I also love other pokemon like Lugia, Lucario, and Fennekin.
Everyone should grow up. Just because there are a ton of new pokemon doesn't mean you can't play with the pokemon you don't like. That's why Nintendo hasn't removed them. They instead add more.
row up and play some Pokemon people, don't whine to people who have no say on the design, the designers themselves don't even deserve to be complained to.

I hope Kyle-Dove here approves of what I've said.
SuperLeon Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2013  Student General Artist
The only excuse that might be true is that they ran out of animals to model them after.

SilverSail Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks for this! I don't want to sound like I'm trying to agree with it to agree, I really do feel like this generation, like others, has some pretty good potential so far. I feel that I'm more open to newer ones than when Black and White were released because Black and White came a long time after it's preceding generation (Diamond and Pearl and whatnot).
I also don't like Generation I very much (and get much hate for it), due to the limitations and lack of variety. However, I don't hate it, since it started off Pokémon. I'm sure anything I don't like, I will grow to love eventually (though it may take longer for those trainers we saw in the trailer...)
TikiTiel Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2013
I think they look okay so far, especially Froakie >w<
I'm just not sure I'll like this gen because it seems a little too soon after Unova to be releasing another gen.
And not only that, but I didn't really care for many of the Pokemon designs (Don't get me wrong here, I actually thought the designs were good for a Pokemon, they just weren't appealing to me) in Unova besides a select few.
I'll have to see more than just the first forms of the starters and brief images of the legendaries before I judge the region.

As far as it being on the 3ds goes, I'm extremly pumped for it! I cannot wait to get my hands on it and play with my pokemon in 3D!
CunningFox Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I agree that people who hate on any generation and don't accept it as part of pokemon aren't real poke-fans. There was TONS of starter hate last release though for the unova trio, then they grew on people :) though some part of it being 3DS only might be driving the hate a long a little bit. To be honest im glad they finally made the graphics jump and hope it works well!

According to sources they have announced there will be over 700 or therabouts pokemon in this gen so that means atleast 50 new pokemon created! I can't wait to see their designs and fall in love with a few of them :3 Fennekin is the first starter since 2nd gen that iv LOVED on sight though. His evos will proove if I love him in game too.

I need to see the evolutions before I make my judgement. I just hope the fire starter's evolutions doesn't become a fire/fighting type. If it does I hope its design is more of a change from infernape to emboar. Out of All the starters fully evolved forms I have only hated Infernape and Marshtomp.

Yeah, I know that, I don't like people that is hating every new pokemon that they releases. I don't like first generation too, and I think that they have improved with the concept of what pokemon has to be with the time.

Of this new pokemon, I'm in love qith 4 of them 5, so, yeah.

I'll love pokemon ever, it doesn't matter how the pokemon are, they will be just awesome :D

This is the first time that I have ever wanted all three starters. Much better in comparison to 5th generation where I didn't want any of them.

People have different opinions, if they don't like them, tough luck, they aren't changing the designs of them.

I started playing Pokemon with the Yellow version, and I love Pokemon EVEN MORE now. In fact, it was 5th Generation that reignited my spastic love for those little critters and games.I mean, I /loved/ my yellow version, as well as Silver and Crystal, and then oh my gosh with the update to Ruby and Sapphire, man my sister an I loved that. Afterwards it got a bit old, and Diamond and Pearl I just didn't feel too much, didn't care to much for the starters, but I got Diamond, and there are SEVERAL of the Pokemon that I love. I even dragged a friend into the series at this point. Black and White...that was my turning point. I jumped back in as an avid collector and player. Now all I see is how 5th Gen sucks and is so unoriginal, when I really look at the 5th Gen pokemon and think of how they're JUST as original if not MORE original than the first 151. Though I knew 6th Gen will be a repeat, I personally am looking forward to all the new Pokemon.

Personally, I saw the new trailer and got all giddy. This new generation looks like it REALLY is taking a step forward. Maybe even multiple steps, lol. I love the new starters, I loved the last set of starters. People bash them, but they really have no right to do so.

Note to people complaining about the new generation...
There are not YOUR games. You are not making them. This is the direction that the CREATORS are wanting to go. They are happy with the new designs, and that is all that matters. If you hate them so much, stop buying the games and waiting for a new generation to come out to bash on. If you want a generation of your own dream characters, get off your ass and make your own game. Until you have been in the place of a developer, don't sit there and hate them.
NeipyPien Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The new designs are awesome to my tastes, unfortunately people will complain for anything (seems that people forgot their hate of gen 4 and 5 :I)

I admit to being in the WTF!? Nintendo crowd with some of the pokemon game releases in the past, but they'd eventually grow on me through game play and battles. This generation, however, hasn't garnered that gut reaction from me, and I'm actually very excited to see what the game will be like. It's the first time since Gen 2 that I can say I'm going to have a hard time picking a starter based on the first stage reveal!

dumping hate spew on your art is lame. I hope it stops soon. It's not why we create art after all.
