Even their shadows look retarded. I've lost hope.

The one on the left looks like an anorexic cyndaquil; the middle one looks like its half spoink, half turtwig, half rabbit, and the other one looks like a beaver.

Left: Grass because of the tail, it looks like a 3 leaf design use on 20 other pokemon.
Middle: Fire, also pig.
Right: Water, also a beaver.

I called it. If I'm right I win the internet.

God they don't even look like pokemon anymore. They look like creatures from some online pet-raising place.

They haven't looked like Pokemon since gen.2 they look like biomechanical lifeforms.

Yep, this is how they betray their original fans.

Although, most children find pokemon too childish even for them, causing it to be considerably less popular to them.


Tl;Dr they would profit better if they focused on the age group of the original red/blue/yellow fans.

uh, no, they probably wouldn't
the amount of kids then vs. the amount of kids now that are able to purchase the game is much greater than back then.
if they wanted to appeal to that crowd (and nintendo has no intent on doing it) they would have built a specific DS game for it.
then again, most people who play the DS are kids <18 or hipsters >20, and a select few in their 30s who use their job for it.
nintendo would have no profitability within the niche of red/blue/yellow fans because of the assumption that they have moved on. most of the kids i know that played the games are in college studying their balls off and never have the time to fuck around with video games anymore. also, if you didn't realize, the volume of kids who play this game is really noticeable (i see many kids 7,8,9, they all have a DS)

That puts you in 3rd place for the oldest ATBBS sysop.
I stopped playing new Pokemon games when they stopped making them for a console I owned. (GBC)
Sure, pirate the ROMs, but the time I would usually be able to play a GameBoy game is places where I can't carry around a bulky laptop, or the battery won't last, such as a 4 hour car trip. When I'm at home and able to play ROMs, I don't have the time to do so.
inb4 get a new console. I'm a diehard fan of old school stuff.

For my next birthday I'm asking for this.

NO! FUCK YOU AND FUCK THAT IMAGE!! CAN YOU NOT TELL THE DIFFERENCE IN QUALITY BETWEEN SQURTLE AND WHATEVER THE FUCK THAT NEW ONE IS!? THERE IS OBVIOUSLY SOMETHING WRONG WITH GAME FREAK'S CHARACTER DISGENR OR SOMETHING. MAYBE HE STARTED SHOOTING UP HEROIN OR SOMETHING IDK BUT THIS NEW SHIT IS FUCKING RIDICULOUS!

You're right though. A turtle is cute and resembles an animal a child might actually have as a pet. Same for a salamander, although theirs wouldn't stand on 2 legs. The beaver is just weird and looks like it's wearing clothes of some sort, which just make it more bizarre. This is the key problem with newer Pokemon: they don't feel organic anymore, like they belong in nature. They've begun to resemble factory machines and biomechs.
