    Does this even count as unpopular when most fans of the trilogy also considered it to be the worst installment lol? :p

    There's more to what makes a woman than a near-meaningless sex organ. :3

    Here's another: gender-swapping characters in established media is generally a bad thing. Men and women are meaningfully different, with different physical and mental characteristics that lead to different experiences and worldviews; that's why representation matters in the first instance. Gender-swapping characters is a tacit admission that you don't think men and women are meaningfully different, or that the character in question is so shallow and one-dimensional that their gender has no impact on their personality and worldview.

    This only really applies to original creators of established media, and not necessarily all characters (some are one-dimensional by design). Gender-swapping can be fun on a design level, where certain visual tropes are reinterpreted, so I often enjoy such fanart.

    I’m okay with gender swapping if it is during a reboot and the character is fully defined and well rounded.

    If you cannot provide logical reasons for why something is wrong, then that something isn't and cannot be wrong. Because if it was wrong, then you would be able to explain it and destroy any arguments against the case.

    This assumes the person trying to explain it is all-knowing, which obviously is not the case. There might be a perfectly valid reason why something is wrong that you are not aware of, or lack a sufficient understanding of the topic to communicate. I'd wager that this is not the case in most scenarios, but it is possible to be right for the wrong reasons, so it shouldn't be assumed that simply because a person's arguments are bad, their conclusion is automatically incorrect. I believe that is called the "fallacy fallacy".

    I think a better paraphrasal of this would be "If you cannot provide reasonable arguments for why something is wrong, you should reexamine the reasons you believe it to be wrong in the first place."

    Even then I'd prefer a longer explanation. At this point I just don't trust the term anymore. I don't doubt it can be used correctly but with the frequency I see it misused I'd rather it be avoided completely.

    Sorry but f-no.
    Gen 1 designs are not far superior than other Gen designs, piece of crap evolving into bigger piece of crap, Pokeballs Pokemon with switched colors, mole Pokemon evolving into 3 mole Pokemon glued together are superior designs than all 700+ Pokemon designs from Gen 2 to Gen 8? Lol no. Every gen has bad designs but Gen 1 has the lamest designs ever.

    Sorry but F-NO.
