The gist of this guy's idea is that Pokemon players come to buy for Pokemon, while a Bayonetta player will buy other games like it. 

...I feel as if that were the case, we'd have evidence of Bayonetta fans buying a lot of Dante or Wonderful 101, which I have never heard evidence of. Plus the idea that Pokemon buyers will only buy Pokemon is a tad odd. 

I mean even as a kid, I got non-Pokemon games on my handhelds. I buy other games for my little sisters's 3DS and she had bought other titles, like Poocy and Yoshi's Whooly World. And I see little reason why Pokemon fans would not bleed over into, say, Mario Kart or such. 

Sure they might not help the sales of Awakening or Link Between Worlds, but the point seems weak. 

The Democratic Nintendo fan....is that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?
