We thought the movie would hype them up. Guess it didn't do much, huh?Zoroark and Zorua's decline seemed really noticeable. Like, I remember a lot of people being so hyped about them in early 2010 and thinking that they were Gen 5's counterparts to Lucario and Riolu, then once Black and White came out nobody cared about the foxes anymore...
Just you wait for that Gen IV remake and my boi Infernape will take back his rightful positionI feel like Blaziken and Infernape will forever be jealous of the spotlight that Charizard gets seeing that as soon as their gens were over, they were more or less forgotten about.
I guess it was also the backlash against Fire/Fighting starters.I feel like Blaziken and Infernape will forever be jealous of the spotlight that Charizard gets seeing that as soon as their gens were over, they were more or less forgotten about.
I suppose in Blaziken's case people remembered it for its mega, but I don't think that lasted very long.
Yes, but I think that was due to lack of communication between the Western and Japanese fandoms. Not a lot of people here knew about GS, unlike the Japanese fans that knew that Gen II was coming since the month the anime started airing.Didn't people think Marill (a.k.a. Pikablu) was a legendary Pokémon or something?
I guess if Lucario gets some love here in SwSh via getting a Dyna/Giga, the cycle would repeat itself, no? Although I would think it being part of the Super Smash Bros. series would help it continue to be relevant!a Pokemon that I think fell out of popularity is Lucario.
In Gen 4 everyone loved Lucario, but when the hype of Gen 5 arrived, everybody stopped. When it got its Mega, everyone liked it, but then people stopped talking about it really fast.
