Mainly because people also ignore the fact that there are certain backstories to different pokÃ©mon as well. Honedge for example, is a possessed sword that steals one's soul whenever somebody grabs it. That is no different from Dusknoir, a pokÃ©mon that sends your soul to hell. Or Spiritomb, a pokÃ©mon that is created when 108 spirits were sealed into an obelisk. And of course there will be fanmade pokÃ©mon (I have a friend who does his own, but he would say the same thing), a majority of them are evolutions, and some in my opinion are not that great compared to the ones that gamefreak designed themselves. The cycle will continue every gen when someone hates on an entire gen all because they don't like 1 or 2 pokÃ©mon with an....unusual design. Especially since the games weren't even released yet. Now going back to gen 5, most the people who bash on them tend to be gen1 or nostalgia fanboys. Don't get my wrong, I grew up with gen1 and it is my favorite gen when it comes to ice types, but Gen 5 is intended to be a reboot of the series. Like an updated version of gen 1, yet it seems to get so much hate. If those two gens switched places, they would be doing the same thing.
