You're making a huge leap in logic to assume people hate this because it's a new IP. It simply has the misfortune of being caught in the middle of a Pokemon-related controversy. That's definitely an unfair reason to not give the game a chance.
But even aside from Pokemon arguments, there are certain aspects of the game that look really unappealing to me. I'd reconsider if I heard enough positive word-of-mouth, because maybe it's pretty fun. However, I'm well past taking blind risks on games, especially after Game Freak having disappointed me so many times recently.
