But I also gave it credit for design concept and type? How does "just because" apply, if I didn't "just" use competitive as my argument? Either way you are free to love and hate any pokemon, but your point just came from a weird placeJust because a Pokemon may be competitively viable in the games doesn't guarantee that it'll be loved by anime viewers. I personally think Uonoragon is grotesque, but the same applies to so many Pokemon that Satoshi owns, so I'm not as critical of it since I'm sort of used to being disappointed by his captures. I still think Uonoragon deserves screen-time, in any case.
I totally agree with this part...Saying they have to appreciate it because that’s how it was intended to be just sound pretentious af.
But isn't saying people aren't allowed to try to convice someone also kinda pretentious? I mean, we are in a forum, debating and opinion sharing is kinda the whole point, sure if they were rude and disgusting about it...but saying 'i dont understand why people..', i don't think it's unreasonable to express that, to then engage with people to either understand them, or have them understand you?Just let people like and dislike what they want intead of making it a debate of how people should feel.
