I'm gonna take a wild guess, 'cause... why not. If tomorrow's poll goes something like this:

https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/poll/6521-got-pokemon-sun-or-moon

...I expect the "moved on from the series" percentage to almost reach 40%.


https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/poll/7782-got-pokemon-sword-and-or-shield

They changed some of the options but it looks like those who weren't interested regardless is stable from the Sun/Moon poll at right around 49-50% of the site and an additional ~11% are pissed enough at the changes that they're not picking up Sword or Shield.

Worse than you figured!

I think it depends on how you interpret the poll. As of right now, if we combine the 4th and 5th options ("upset with the cuts" + "used to be a Pokémon fan") it gives roughly 37%, so technically I'd be around 2% off my guess.

The head-stratcher for me here is the last option. It... shouldn't be so high. I'd figure "never been a Pokémon fan" =/= "never played a game in the series" just fine, but it's kind of hard for me to process the percentages between them.

~7% of people having played at least one Pokemon game but not really ever having liked any of them makes enough sense to me. If anything I'd figure it would be higher given that the Sun/Moon poll indicates a series playrate above 80%.

Okay, so taking both polls into account, what percentage of the fanbase would you guys say has moved on/grown tired of the series?

Maybe like a third or quarter of the fandom, although they’ll still buy it anyways.

Why in all these polls of the day I always see people that keep their old consoles? I mean you can play the old games via PSN/XBOX Arcade/Virtual Console. I don't get it.
So why we exist? What happens when we stop existing?

Not everything is on the PSN/VC/etc and some people like to keep their older consoles and handhelds

I've kept every one of my old consoles. Even as a kid, I'd take excellent care of my consoles and games, and I love playing the games the way they were originally meant to be played. Some of those games aren't available in the newer systems either. It's not like I use them frequently but unless I'm ever in need of a desperate buck, I'll keep my console.

Nostalgia and hobby were my main reasons, though I recently sold everything off. I don't think current products (VC, services, NES Classic) are a total replacement but they fit my current needs.
