You shall not mispronounce a Pokemon's name. And it doth not matter that by the lessons of English you could pronounce a Pokemon's name multiple ways, you will pronounce it the correct way, even if the incorrect way is popular. What is the correct way, well it's the, way that's correct.
You shall not dislike a Pokemon. There is no reason to dislike a Pokemon, any Pokemon. They are all unique and appealing in different ways; you must simply find a way that you like it. And you will be thankful for its existence, and you will like it, you will appreciate it. You cannot dislike a Pokemon.
You shall not say that a Pokemon is bad. All Pokemon are created equally, HEY DON'T LOOK A THOSE STATS AND STOP LOOKING AT THOSE ABILITIES; They are equals. All Pokemon have their use, they are all good. Use them as such, as there is no such thing as a bad Pokemon.
You shall not dislike any generation of Pokemon. All the generations are also created equally and are all good in their own unique way. You also shall not like any of these Generations over another. No Generation is better than another. So what if Gen I is a Glitchy mess or if Gen II is hollow or if Gen III has too much water or if Gen IV is slow as shit or if Gen V was overly linear or if Gen VI was too easy, they are all equal, and you will like them all equally.
