These are people who grew up with the Johto Pokémon games (Gold, Silver, and Crystal) for the Gameboy/Gameboy Color. Similar to a 'Genwunner', they believe that only a set number of Pokémon exist (251 in total), and will disparage any Pokémon fan who like anything related to Pokémon past what Johto introduced, claiming that Pokémon 'died' after that.

Around 2008, these people had a prominent trait similar to a 'Hoenn Baby', in which they believed a remake of Johto would be the second coming. Nowadays, these people flaunt the superiority of their Johto remakes, disparaging anything before, or after them, claiming that they are perfect in every possible way.
Johto Drone: "Hey, what's your favorite Pokémon game?"

Normal Person: "Pokémon Black or Whi-"

Johto Drone: "Black or White? Play a real Pokémon game, like Crystal, or Soul Silver!"

Normal Person: "But.. the new Pokemon are cool..."

Johto Drone: "Anything past Celebi is a Digimon!! I remember when the Pokémon were unique and creative, and not these rehashes!! Johto Pokémon had the last good designs before it all went downhill!!"
