Why do Pokemon fans attach themselves to this franchise, often to the point of a deep emotional connection, never play anything else, then proceed to whine about this franchise? What brings on this mindset?

      The fact that you this only happens to Pokémon fans is comical, most people who aren’t dedicated gamers just play the sorts of games they played as kids. My girlfriend only ever played GTA5 Minecraft and Mario kart so that’s all she ever plays

              No anon, the implication was that we do things other than playing video games with the time that freed up from only ever playing a small handful of them. My girlfriend really likes soccer and I like to go on hikes and do stuff like rock climbing. The fact that, even after I specified that it’s because we aren’t dedicated gamers, you immediately thought that playing less video games means that we play those few games that much more, and weren’t able to imagine any other potential possibility is pretty funny ngl.

                Well unfortunately for you I spared the 15 necessary seconds to read that post and it really made it clear who's actually doing the same thing over and over

    Because there's a difference between enjoying something and being a "fan" of something. Fandoms are like a brotherhood pact. You're swearing allegiance to something. When it struggles, you struggle. When people oppose it you oppose them. It's blind loyalty caused by a desire to be in a community with others who share the same interests as you.

    Companies exploit humanities tendency to want to be in groups by encouraging the concept of the fandom. After all, an extremely loyal group of people willing to support and defend your products is the main goal of every company because it ensures constant revenue.

    Don't be a fan, enjoy things.

      That's the entire fucking problem
      If they just renamed Ganker to /mon/ than this thread wouldn't exist, as there would be a release valve for these problems.
      they will never, ever do this though, since in general good things don't happen.

    Its weird to me that most Pokemon fans tend to only play Pokemon, and actually only consume Pokemon content given the general cultural illiteracy of this board. Mario and Zelda fans usually play other Nintendo franchises, same as Sonic fans, but Pokemon fans desperately cling to the games as hard as they can, doing challenge runs, nuzlockes, romhacks, constant replays, begging for infinite postgames, begging for games where they stuff in a bunch of regions they've already played before, etc. It's weird as hell

      >begging for infinite postgames
      This is my pet peeve. It's wild to me that people whined - are still whining over Gen 9 having a short postgame. Like yeah okay it sucks we didn't get a better postgame but also why the fuck do you care. Game's done. It's over. Go home.

      And for any angry autist reading this I disliked both SV and the postgame only being the Ace Tourney/Ruins, but the fact is that's such a small part of why SV is bad and yet it gets screeched about over and over. Because Pokemorons need to wring out 500 hours of content from every game. These are all games you could complete in a few days and 100% in a few weeks, several are actually shorter. There are games made for the Switch in 2022 alone where you can naturally play for hundreds of hours without artificially extending your playtime, but Pokefags are just mentally ill and just can't stop playing Pokemon.

        Sonic doesn't get annual releases so they're kinda forced to at a certain point.

    Zoomers, furries, pedos, and trannies are lonely creatures with no parents, friends or meaningful activities. They just Leech on popular brands like Pokemon to start talking about sex, genders, porn, and autistic thoughts in hope someone give them attention.

    This board is a clear evidence of this.

    In most cases, it's probably been around for their entire lives and was something they were completely surrounded by during their most formative years. Is it really that mind-boggling that a subsection of the fanbase (which has tens of millions of people in it) would latch on to it to an unhealthy degree?

    Almost every time one of these threads is made, it's the people who don't like pokemon that struggle to imagine anyone doing things other than playing pokemon in their life, while the people who do enjoy the games always talked about having other interests too. How does the narrative of pokemon-obsessed shills keep coming back every year when all evidence points to the opposite?

      I'm sorry that just isn't true.

      If you've got people on this board trying to say Johto is an open world game, then yes many anons obviously have limited understanding about games.
      yes I have seen that exact argument several times pre-SV

      I would go so far as to say it's a bootlicking Nintendo fan thing as a whole.
