Many Miiverse users think that the rule of the Original Twelve should be broken, and that just because they were in the first game doesn't mean they should be in all of the following ones. Under normal circumstances this would be understandable, but they usually only think one character should be cut - Jigglypuff. Jigglypuff is a Pokemon who has the ability to sing and draw. She is also one of the more popular Pokemon in Japan (in which her name means pudding for some reason). This has caused many flamewars on Miiverse and Youtube.
