Pokemon isn't getting worser: You're just blinded by nostalgia.

I would like to point out two things:

1) Worser isn't a word. I assume you mean worse.
2) How can you prove that we're just blinded by nostalgia? You state that I'm "blinded by nostalgia" as if it's a fact. You have the BoP of addressing that I AM indeed blinded by nostalgia. Since I only play newer Pokemon games, I wouldn't know which is better, thus, I CANNOT be blinded by nostalgia.

Well, Pro didn't give me any sort of reasoning suggesting that I am blinded by nostalgia. As a person who's only been a fan for a couple of years, I wouldn't know which is better. Pro didn't establish any sort of rules suggesting that whoever accepted this debate HAD to be a Pok"mon fan. And if I didn't play older Pok"mon games, then I cannot be blinded by nostalgia. I rebutted Pro's claim, didn't forfeit any rounds, and put reasoning into my argument. This is a straight up win for me, and I should win this by a landslide.

Despite my partial disagreeing with you, I want to give you my full respect. If you take offense to anything I say, I apologize.

I agree that Pokemon isn't getting worse. In terms of game mechanics and visuals, I think the series consistently improves as it goes on. Even the newer games aren't perfect, but I don't feel that they're declining in quality. However...

The argument that you put forth is extremely flimsy. Are you saying that long-time veterans of the series can't have criticism forwarded at the newer games? I'm not saying that every fan looks at the newer games rationally, but assuming that nostalgia is a factor in all of Gen VI's retractors is a very short-sighted mentality. Nostalgia caters to a specific person, and not necessarily the entirety of a fanbase.

14 year old kid thinks "worser" is a word. Stop playing pokemon and go pick up a book.

Hmm I'm pretty tempted to accept but I guess I won't accept after all...

I don't really have a proper rebuttal in store, particular because I haven't played pokemon for a long time.

I enjoyed the originals, but preferred the hacked ones better, like dark rising (1) and dark rising (2), even if they were freaking hard

I wanted to try volt white and blaze black 1 & 2, but I couldn't find an emulator suitable to play the roms...

I never liked the capture all pokemon part of pokemon though, I only captured legendaries for collection (and power, if they were strong)...

Awww I wanted to take the side of Pro.

But anyway, when you say Pokemon do you mean Hacked Pokemon or plain legit, original Pokemon?
