^This. Just so I am clear; a "genwunner" is a person who likes only RBGY and thinks that Generations 2-5 "aren't real pokemon", not people who started with the first Gen, and still play the series to this day (replete with all the other generations). If it is the latter, then I suppose I am a genwunner, as I have been in since the beginning and am quite proud of that fact (I too started with Blue, as the colour red hurts my eyes--in general, I like "cool" colours over "warm" colours). HOWEVER, if genwunners are the former, then I have encountered them, and some of them say ridiculous things: "THERE ARE ONLY 150 POKEMON!". Um, Mew says "hey", for one.
A lot of you younger folks aren't going to want to hear it, but some of you (especially "Genthree-ers") seem to have this same problem as the genwunners. I've heard a lot of kids that started with Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald say "THIRD IS THE BEST! FIRST IS STUPID AND ALL THE LATER GENERATIONS SUCK!". This (and the fact that I hate the Hoenn region with a fiery passion) has made me dislike the third gen games (though I love the third gen pokemon, I just hate the third gen games and region, which is why I don't replay them).
My favorite gen is fifth. I like the designs, I like how much more advanced it is than the previous generations, I like the story lines for both BW and B2W2. However, I will ALWAYS love the first generation, as it was my first. Yes, it was flawed. I know that. But that won't stop me from playing my copy of blue. I like the glitches, I like how crude the sprites look (some of them make me out right laugh), and, to tell the truth, I miss Team Rocket. They seemed the most realistic out of the "Evil Teams" as they were just the Pokemon Mafia. [/prepares to be called a genwunner for that]
I will be on here very, very rarely. The account is not dead, per se, but I will not be on often. This has become a den of hatred, hostility, and anger. It is not the SPPF it was when I joined, and I really dislike coming here. To those of you who were nice to me and were my friend, thank you. Goodbye.
