Go’s Scyther is indestriketible! <3
The passing of time doesn't stop people from talking about previous sagas. XY(&Z) is no different. People still bash Iris and it's been 4 years. It's the newest saga to have complete so it's bound to be compared to & talked about. There's another active thread that talks about AG being the least controversial and DP lacking in humor and it's 7+ years for those sagas.There's a difference between criticism and being picked on. The issues you listed were criticised a couple of times, and have never been talked about since (other than maybe Pikachu losing to a lvl 5 Snivy). Do you honestly see these issues being brought up regularly in topics these days? In XY's case, there was fair criticism for the first couple of months for whatever flaws it had, but the fact that XY is brought in almost every discussion week in week out even after it ended 8 months ago, as well as being raised in SM topics with which XY has no relation to, it definitely is picked on.
