Ok, to all you Oshawott bashers, fuck you. Sure your Tenpigs or Snivys are cool looking or adorable, but do can they use a weapon to dispatch their enemies along with their body and natural elemental abilities as a basic? No? Didn't think so.

Seriously?
Just because a game looks cutesy and kiddy-oriented does not mean that it is. The target audience for pokemon isn't just children, but all of the adult gamers smart enough to figure out the intricate strategy involved.

You know I have to disagree with the nostalgia factor to a certain degree.

I started back then too but I actually liked quite a few of the pokemon from the diamond and pearl era. But I compare the B/W pokemon to all of the other games and save for a few they do suck...

Growing up? Sure, but you must understand that there is still affection for the things that deserve it. Squirtle, charmander, etc. and respecting the classics in general. But these "things" are supposed to be pokemon? yeah... whatever.

Even children are starting to think the new Pokemon are stupid and fugly. Most of them don't even look like Pokemon anymore, they're like screwed up Yu-Gi-Oh monsters and the scribblings of mentally challenged kids. And you can't seriously be saying that this...THING is not uglier than Squirtle...?

That's partially true, nostalgia goggles and such, but the creators are really just milking the series now. Sure, Better features and graphics, but hardly any effort in the pokemon.

And Bellossom makes perfect sense, it's essentially an emo growing up and acting right by taking mood-elevating pharmaceuticals.
Discrider

However I don't like all the new evolutions of old pokemon for evolution's sake. Like Leafeon and Bellossom. Eevee maybe did need to evolve with every single stone, but not into stone-eon. May as well have Fireon and Watereon too. And Bellossom shouldn't come from Gloom. Emo shouldn't be evolvable.

I think the new Pokemon are pretty and stuff, but for the most part I find their names to be less charming and, well, "punny." And I also think they're lamer - a turtle is waaay cooler than a sea otter. Plus Pokemon is getting so convoluted now. It's less magical, and really predictable.

It has nothing to do with growing up. Sure, you'll never love new pokemon as much as the first ones you played with, but that's different. The third gen was still alright, it introduced new shapes, and most pokemon still looked like animals. Fourth, however, was horrible.
