  1. It sucks being a Pokemon fan in a time currently the franchise is seen with such utter disdain by nearly everyone in said Fandom that you want to just have a normal discussion about SWSH but it's fucking impossible because you HAVE to get a rant about how shitty the game is like I get it, I understand, I understood months ago when you were saying the same things when the game came out, I just wanna talk about the actual game contents talk about the features of the new dlc etc but it's so hard because the pessimism is present everywhere online. People are more than entitled to their opinions but lord for a game about about connecting with others never did I want to just disconnect from thus Fandom entirely. It's all like this on Twitter, YouTube, Reddit. It's just mad tiring

      I realize the irony saying this on a Sonic Fourm but damn at least Sonic fans take a break in hating on the modern stuff every now and then and talk about the things they like or put all that energy into creating shit like fan art and fan games. It ain't 24/7

      Pokemon fans are still new to it I guess. SWSH is the first time they didn't get a full Pokedex and they are not accustomed to that sort of disappointment.

      Us Sonic fans are used to not getting what we want! So I feel like - as much as we gripe about bad games - we eventually shrug it off and hope for something better next time.

      Besides, the hate Sonic gets is marginally more justified than Pokemon's. These people should be thankful they're getting "complete", playable games at all.

      Sorry, that's not an option in this case

      @Soniman As someone in a similar position. Just stay off social media dude. As unfortunate as it is, this is going to be the climate for this series for a while. You just gotta take your mind off it and endure it until the wave passes. It is the unfortunately consequence with such a large and diverse fandom, and when the games much extremely controversial decisions, it invites....the special cases. So just...endure.

      Newer Pokemon games seem like an obvious step down in a lot of respects so I feel for the fans in some way but their reaction seems disproportionate for the content on offer. The bitching is out of control for a franchise that is generally quality despite some steps backward.

      It's basically what happens when ANY major video game franchise takes some type of radical shift, no matter how minor it's perceived to be. You might feel it's ultimately insignificant, but to someone else they might feel it's a great impact on their personal enjoyment and lash out about the change. People SHOULD be reasonable, because it's a fucking video game at the end of the day. But since a lot of us have been in the Sonic fanbase for as long as we have, people unfortunately, will never be completely rational about this sort of thing and this is the result.
