I don't think popularity or other people's opinions should determine whether or not you like a pokemon.
Magneton was always one of my favorite pokemon. But during the time of Ruby and Sapphire, Smogon praised Magneton for being a hard counter to Skarmory. Did that change the fact that he was my favorite pokemon? No.
