Because Vegetto has been quite controversive over the last few years. Many people who thought he was a permament fusion got disappointed and stopped caring for him, because we've been living in a lie for the past 20 years. Now it seems that Vegetto exists just to bring more merchandise sales or Dokkan $, and lost most of his charm from the Buu saga.

Combine all that with Gogeta about to make his new appearance, and with everything pointing out to him being the key to defeating Broly, you can see why people are switching out.

As short as it is, Gogeta's fight with Janemba is extremely impressive, and his finishing move is unique. For me, at least, Vegetto overstayed his welcome. I also think Gogeta was the more successful character design; not that there's necessarily anything wrong with Vegetto, but Gogeta's design is simpler, more readable, and a better balance of Goku's and Vegeta's traits.

It was also fresh change, fusion, Gogeta says few words, mop the floor with Janemba, the end :)

Its contrary for me

Vegito always gave me the impression of a character backed by abundant love & craze & fanbase, while Gogeta...mind ya..SSJ Gogeta frm Fusion Reborn (not dat abomination from GT) seemed like...."been there, done that" character.

Think abt it. He's basically Gotenks rip-off. An adult version of Fusion. And hardly even a....line.. Those qualities barely register even as a character

Vegito however was unique right from his Potara Fusion concept...to his intro (Z's Ep 269 @ Boohan). Dude was arguably most powerful fighter in universe, plus his uber-cool trolls both @ Boohan & Zamasu is badass!!

Could be the design, transformation, evolved forms.. personal taste, you know.

I honestly prefer Gogeta to Vegetto, especially Gogeta SSJ4.

Gogeta being a fused character with a SSJ4 form is extremely iconic for a lot of western fans.

He doesn't. Gogeta is simply more hyped up now because of his upcoming appearance in the Broly film. He might not win in the movie though.

If you look at fan art (both East and West), there's much more of it of Vegito than Gogeta. He also seems to get more merchandise too.

It's about 50/50 on Gogeta/Vegetto merchandise, from this year (up until November):

December will skew everything in Gogeta's favour since he's getting a shit tonne of stuff, as expected. But both fusions seem to be as popular as each other. It's very rare we go though a month without any sort of fusion merch popping up.

Because Gogeta actually accomplished something in his existence. More than Vegetto has in vastly more screen time provided to him.

Gogeta had some spectacular action in comparison to Vegetto.

Gogeta SSJ completely stomped Janemba in badass way
Gogeta SSJ4 was fun and was...SSJ4 which most fans love

Vegito had entertaining fight against Super Buu and disappointing appearance and nerf in Super.
Also, since Vegito was permament until Super, fusing into Gogeta was way more likely to happen in any media which could make people care about Gogeta more while accepting a fact that Vegito most likely won't appear again.
Also, Gogeta was first and Vegito was just Toriyama's answer and pretty much ripoff of Movie 12 idea.

I think it’s natural to be endeared towards an “alternate” version of a pre-existing character. It’s why characters like Goku Black and Tullece are so popular. Gogeta is basically alternate Vegetto.

He also has the best Super Saiyan hair design in the series.

You mean Vegetto is alternate Gogeta.
Gogeta was first. Toriyama said that he copied fusion idea from movie 12 and was looking for an alternate way of fusing and then remembered that he was drawing kais with earrings so he created earring fusion because he didn't want to make Gogeta since he was in a movie.

I always got the impression Vegito was more popular, at least before he returned for Super.

I like both but I like Vegito more. The way he dominated Buu after we'd seen Buu dominate everyone for so long and absorb everyone was badass. People complain he was too cocky, but there was a method to the madness as he was trying to rescue his sons and Piccolo the whole time. He outsmarted both Buu and the audience by deliberately getting absorbed and was in control all along, and that makes him awesome.

Movie 12 Gogeta had no reason to mess around so ended things quickly like a boss. I understand why people would prefer his more serious no bullshit persona though, and his brief lines and finishing move are all kinds of cool.

GT Gogeta felt like a different character though. They basically had him act like Vegito except he had no reason to mess around which makes him the dumbest Goku Vegeta fusion. He still looks cool and is fun to play in the games, but he dropped the ball for no good reason.

Gogeta is a cooler and superior combination of Goku and Vegeta's names than just adding and an "o" to the end. He's less of a comedic character in his first appearance. He has better attacks "big bang kamehameha, his finiher in the movie" He's used more sparingly.

There was no nerf in the Super anime, Merged Zamasu got buffed the moment he grew the purple arm.

Well from permanent fusion he got turned into 5 minute fusion, even shorter than Gogeta SSJ4.
Also, Fused Zamasu was meant to be weaker than Goku and Vegeta without fusion.

Vegito is fine. His demanding fans complain about him because they were expecting him to roflstomp Fused Zamasu (final villain of the most serious arc in Super) in a few seconds and yet also appear in several episodes.
