This pretty much sums up my reaction to Gen 5 in general. Initial distaste which inevitably gave way to UNDYING AFFECTION. I don't know what kind of voodoo rituals go into the creation of new Pokemon, but they must be some potent shit.
I quite agree...XD I hated nearly every Gen V Pokemon to begin with (with a few exceptions) and then grew to love or be okay with most of them. That doesn't normally happen... Pokemon I dislike at first tend to keep that tag of being disliked. It's all the more amazing considering I really did NOT like the storyline of B/W/B2/W2. XD
