Top 10 Reasons Why Gen 1 Nostalgia Pandering in the Newer Pokemon Games Gets Annoying

Ruee

The Top TenXW

1Takes away from having an entirely new experience
2Genwunners will ignore that it happened because it's not their desired Gen 1 remake
3People (Genwunners) that do get dragged into the new Pokemon Games only love the said games because of the Gen 1 Pokemon and not other stuff
4Most people who still play the newer Pokemon games want an entirely experience that doesn't depend on nostalgia pandering
5Gives overrated gen 1 Pokemon special treatment for no reason at all except for fan service

Both the reason and the response are perhaps the most distorted, illogical, warped, and tortured set of reasoning ever, and about a topic that matters exactly zero.

Not a lot of topics that are made on this site don't really matter either but it won't stop people from making lists about. But if that's how you feel about mine, then fine. It's not like I can change your mind. - Ruee

Charizard having 2 mega evolutions as well as Mewtwo. Giving a Mega to charizard that resembles its original shiny form. Getting a Kanto starter after you beat the first gym in Pokemon XY. Having the legendary birds in XY as roaming legendaries for no reason other than them being gen 1 legendaries. - Ruee

6It doesn't really need to happen
7New Pokemon games need to stand on their own as a new experience for everyone and not throwbacks to gen 1 most of the time
8Kalos ended up not being much of a entirely new region like it was supposed to be in the XY games
9May cause Pokemon Sun and Moon to have a pandering/fan service crisis like XY that could lower the quality of the games

They are trying to make sure this doesn't happen by revamping the Pokemon by giving them more forms and potential and not just megas, but I'm still concerned if they will do it too much. All of the Pokemon that have alolan forms so far are gen 1 Pokemon. They better have a reason to be there like "Alola having a special connection with the Kanto region in the Pokemon lore" and not unexplained fan service that only happens to be there for no other reason than just that. - Ruee

10It was nice at first, but now it's getting aggravating.

Like having some is alright but having so much throwbacks and fan service doesn't really need to happen. Not everyone is phased by nostalgia. Even those who started with Gen 1. They are most likely still playing Pokemon for new experiences, not constant nostalgia pandering. - Ruee
