Amen to that. It really seems to be a matter of misunderstanding and lack of consideration. What started as a simple feud between fans slowly devolved into an anti-nostalgic attack as more and more generations passed. Its sad how people get over-defensive toward vocal minorities. What some people may not realize is that retaining some nostalgic aspects keeps new generations in check from being too different or overly ambitious to the point where the franchise might be legitimately damaged; a risk that always exists in a market where a company has gained large influence and free reign. In any case, it hurts to be disregarded as a common stereotype in any aspect of life. I have no business telling anyone why their preferences are "wrong", because I can't change what they like or dislike. In my experience, the hurt on the fandom from attacks on new Pokemon dwarfs in comparison to the tenfold hurt of the retaliation on old Pokemon and their fans.
