How will /vp/ cope?
>>
>>25081170
ignore it
>>
>>25081170
>implying that it could actually get any worse than this
>>
Was literally about to post this, I didn't suffer years of merciless bullying for Pokemon to suddenly be claimed by nostalgic 'nerds' who think it's cool now because it's 'retro'.
>>
>>25081170

/vp/ is such a slow board I wouldn't even mind.
>>
>>25081170
Probably won't notice the difference.
>>
Post more Pokewaifus to scare them
>>
>>25081170
Who cares about normies?
>>
it's not like they're advertising /vp/ too. /v/ will just have more pokemon threads than usual
>>
>normies
>on 4chan
Every "normie" you see around here is a shitposter, likely from /v/, /s4s/ or reddit.
>>
It won't happen.
Don't get me wrong, GO will be a massive hit among normies (the game has every possibility of being one of the biggest mobile games ever and bring back pokemon to the heights of popularity of 15 years ago) but they will flood reddit, not 4chan.
>>
>>25081199
Seriously. I know people from elementary school who used to make fun of me for liking Pokemon who are saying all this "it was my childhood" shit. I bet most of these fucks only ever watched the cartoon if that.
>>
>>25081234
Gotta make /vp/ red
>>
>>25081730
>I bet most of these fucks only ever watched the cartoon

That's so incredibly statistically unlikely that I actually got a little dizzy.
>>
>>25081988
no it's not, retard
>>
>>25082014

How old are you? Do you even remember pokemania? Fucking EVERYONE had the games, collected the cards, watched the anime, and bought the toys.

The only kids who didnt were those bulky ugly ginger kids who lived in trailers and liked wrestling.
>>
>>25081170

>a bunch of normies that haven't played since their childhood will suddenly care about pokemon

If they are normies, why would they visit 4chan?
>>
>>25081170
Hopefully Hiro will remove this shitstain of a board before that happens.
>>
>>25082032

4Chan has been for normies since 2007/2008

>All these autistic faggots being pissed off about people becoming nostalgic for pokemon.

You were probably bullied for being an autistic furry, not for liking pokemon.

Besides the commercial probably won't do much.
>>
>>25081170
The same thing we always do. Hide in generals and yell at each other over a game that came out over a year ago.
>>
>>25082040
you're delusional

/lgbt/, /v/, /b/, /x/ and now /tv/ have a fuckload but most boards are normieproof because of the high autism levels
>>
>>25082434

Have you seen what this site was like before 2007?
>>
>>25082470
I think we just grew up. 4chan is a meta. Browsing here and browsing facebook or twitter is like night and day.
>>
> ewww, normies, eww eww eww get them away!

Since when did this board become populated by hipsters?
>>
>there are people on this board who actually believe anything good will be announced during the American super bowl.
At least having corocoro expectations makes some kind of sense, but what the fuck you delusional idiots?
>>
>>25082591
By "Normies," we mean casuals who hate the new Pokemon, and made fun of us for still liking it past 1999
>>
Anything would be an improvement over the current state of this board.
>>
Most normies would just keep themselves to facebook, twitter, reddit or whatever. /vp/ isn't gonna be be "infested", just a couple of newfags here and there, most probably won't stay for long. So yeah, not a big difference.
>>
>>25082031
Not in every country. Here for example, back in gen 1-2 times, pokemon games weren't THIS popular, and most of the fans only knew anime.
>>
>>25081170

Start spamming Iris and Lenora art.

I don't even spam them either.

No we played the card game, back when there was only 151 pokemen in existense, you know nothing of og ash ketchum'all red/blue version, gameboy colors? Your BTFO m8, just accept it and pay homage to those that came before you. Bulbasaur for lifye
>>
>>25082598
Lol

I'm already feeling the repercussion of the ad. My normie friends have been texting me about it say how hype they are. I mean I'm happy they excited for something that I love. I just hate it's all gen 1 nonsense.
>>
>>25082489
b-but at least I have more in common than the fucks on twitter or fb
>>
How do you feel when people say "I remember when there were only 150 Pokemans!"?
>>
>>25083164
>Gen I nonsense
You faggots are way more annoying than the genwunner normies and by far, no wonder, you little shits got bullied.
>>
>>25081170
It's already happened. The video got 3 million views in 24 hours and is on the front page of youtube. Children and redditors have already come out of the woodwork to shitpost here. Honestly I welcome the normalfags we'll get when the commercial actually airs.

As always, the correct response is to hide/report/ignore the garbage and make quality posts & threads of your own. Some "LURK MOAR" would be nice as well.

Nah man, I just wish they acknowledge the core fans that have stuck with them throughout the years. I like all gen. it's just annoying that they exclusive pander to the crowd that has abandoned them.

One of my best m80's who has played pokemon with me since its western release, every single gen, religiously, as well as taking time to watch the original jap animu dubs etc — just straight up DROPPED pokemon gen 6.

he
>played XY
>hated the new aesthetic style
>quickly realised his hand was being held
>fucking dropped

I even sent him my spare copy of ORAS in the mail so he could play it, this was shortly after it got released, I visited him over xmas and checked his save. total play time was no more than an hour.

FUCKING DROPPED!! heavy and hard

and yet he is fucking hyped for pokken fair enough detective pikachu, and finally GO — of all things he believes GO will be some premium grade A shit, even if it is total shit, because it means a precursor to something incredible in the future

tldr
>gen 6 a shit and GO a shit
>>
>>25083278
We're like this on an anonymous internet forum. Is that not acceptable? We're like this because we got bullied. Near all of us like and enjoy gen 1, but we also recognize its flaws, as well as the achievements of the other generations. Some of us do go a little overboard, but it is justified, in that we are sick of being pushed around.
>>
You really think they'd come here of all places?

Also if they do some will try to scare them off with Pokemon porn
>>
>>25083328
>You really think they'd come here of all places?

Why not? Normies fucking love saving pictures from here to post in shitty facebook meme pages.
>>
>>25082598
So, /v/tards?
>>
You sound like a hipster, OP.
>>
>>25083773
"Hipsters" are the people who will flock here because of GO.
>>
>>25081170
>genwunners will outnumber shitposters with poor taste
This commercial will make /vp/ great again.
>>
>>25083780

> Hipsters will flock to something new, popular, and trendy

You have no idea what a hipster is do you?
>>
isnt /vp/ one of the least new friendly pokemon discussion boards?
like there is a fuckton of generals and random pokegirl/waifumon threads

if i was anormie and wanted to talk about pokemon i would go to reddit, fb groups or some other place
>>
>>25083308
>I just wish they acknowledge the core fans that have stuck with them throughout the years.
No, playing up Gen I Pokemon is safer. Based on the sales of RSE and ORAS, as an example, the commercial could've also been filled with Gen III Pokemon at the end instead and effectively have been about as recognizable to the same amount of people.

But anyone familiar with Gen III mon is also going to be familiar with Gen I mon, and the smart money in advertising nowadays goes right for the nostalgia. It's not brand loyalty, it's brand recognition. It's calculated, like everything else advertised and served to you.

>bet most of these fucks only ever watched the cartoon if that
Finally, someone else sees it.

When Fox News did that Hackers on Steroids editorial, that was the starting point. Friday will be the 8th anniversary since Brawl got released, and someone got an early copy spoiling all the details on SSE. 4chan hasn't had that much traffic since.

It's already started.
People on Facebook are already acting retarded and posting shit about how they're the original fans and kids today grew up with the shitty new Pokemon.

There was even a meme faggot who posted "you merely adopted the Pokemon. We were molded by it, etc"
>>
>>25081170
By converting them to 3DS players.

As a side, I was at a chinese restaurant a week ago and there was this 10 year old boy in there talking to his friend about EVs and Natures. I was impressed, and he's probably better at the game than any of us.

>>25084013
Hipsters are mostly dead or converted into our modern day Leftist (degenerates, etc.).

>>25084066

I spend 99% of my time on facebook blocking 'like' pages, and it just never ends. Facebook has tuned into a combination of ebaums and tumblr. Stolen videos and fucking shitty pictures posted by like pages and shared by everyone. Only 3% of my feed is actual status updates and pictures of my friends.

So the average user age goes beyond 14?
>>
>>25085708
>all this turf war
>"normies"

A lot of people feel nostalgic towards pokemon, many of which dropped it ages ago. Yet, they will still sense an aspect of their childhoods in the mention of pokemon and will likely relapse, if only casually. Remember how big pokemon actually was.

I, for one, hope this positive reaction will inspire GF to try even more new things.

This. What I hate most is how most of the Pokémon picked in Smash are straight from Gen 1. I will never understand why Jigglypuff is still in that series while the more popular Blaziken isn't.
>>
>>25085792
No worries.
>>
>>25085796
Jigglypuff was a spontaneous idea due to the relative ease of its implementation. It's largely based off Kirby. It then stayed because reasons.

That said, the only thing I can't stand is starter favouritism. After Charizard and fucking Greninja I expect at least a Grass starter next, don't care which one it is though preferably from a different gen
>>
>>25085796
>Jigglypuff

No characters from the first Smash get cut. Ever.

Maybe we can divert them to /vr/, unless some of them are Hoennfags, we can't get those to leave for there.
>>
>>25085796
Jigglypuff is in for being a veteran, and Sakurai isn't going to (nor should he) cut characters who have been in for multiple games unless you're the Ice Climbers fuck you Sakurai and fuck your 3DS version.
>>
Probably spam the normie posts with horse dicks.
>>
>>25086267
I still say bring back the other two Kanto starters, it's not fair that they got cut and Charizard got to go ahead.
>>
>>25086647
Good call
>>
>>25086647

Oh hello again, horsefucker.
>>
>>25081170
You think a single commercial will usher normies into /vp/?

No no anon, this sort of autism is something you're born with.
