People who say the first generation of Pokémon has to be your favourite or you’re not a real Pokémon fan disgust me. So what if 3rd gen happens to be my favourite? I’ve still been a fan since I was a kid. I just happen to really love the looks of the Pokémon in Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald, and the contests are fun to me. In my eyes, if you can’t accept that people have different opinions to you within your fandom, you’re not a real fan. …But I don’t like saying this to people in case they hate me for it.
