>the perfection that was Red and Blue was only just equaled by Gold and Silver, I never bothered to play after since all true gamers would agree that is when the series met its peak, both stylematogicaly and soulisticly
>>22398578 its not but they could make them a bit harder like even an optional 'hard' mode, not much more wo0rk and you can please more people as well as give casuals something to do if they want to go deeper
>>22399046 There have been multicolor creatures for a while, but the Ravinaca block introduced the idea of guilds which are basically groups dedicated for multicolor creatures. Not every member of a color follows all of that color's ideals. There is collaboration between 2 enemy colors, and in the case of multicolor creatures, they usually fit outside of the color pie.

You have no idea how many So Speshul autists I've seen harping about its "legendary" status.
There were originally only meant to be 2 gens hench why Gold & Silver covers both Johto & Kanto, culminating in the ultimate final battle between Ethan & Red.
This is when the series ended, the rest is just filth. The series started great then they got greedy and started producing cheap shitty games because they know idiots will buy it regardless of their quality. (Kinda like the Sonic the Hedgehog series)
Also >See Black2/White2
As if buying 2 games and then a 3rd improved one isn't enough...
>>22399953 Johto's a bit empty, and Kanto's emptier than it was in Gen I, but just having two whole regions in one game I think makes up for it. Johto has some cool Pokémon, some of the best music in the series, the only thing that really drags it down is the awful level curve.
That being said, >>22399939 is a nostalgiafag and I don't think Gold and Silver are the best games in the series.
Both regions are empty as shit, the new Pokemon are literally gen 1 rejects and almost all poorly designed shitmons, and even if you WANTED to use them they're spread out so poorly you'll wind up running into mostly the original 151 anyway. The level curve is terrible, the overworld is horribly laid out with far too many HMs required to get anything done, the story is the worst in a franchise of games with terrible stories, and the music, while probably the high point, is mediocre to good at its best points.
They're just not very good games. Not to mention that Kris is worst girl.
>>22400108 >you'll wind up running into mostly the original 151 anyway
that was the whole fucking point, instead of remaking hundreds of completely generic shitmon (like unfezant & watchog) every game that serve no fucking purpose they kept most of the original shitmon to avoid pokedex clutter and to show it has a connection with Kanto.
>those fucking elemental monkeys
The fire one is literally just a shit Infernape, it is completely fucking pointless. Why does it even exist?

But they DID remake the generic shitmon. Hoothoot is Pidget, Sentret is Rattata. Which is all the more egregious considering how few Pokemon they actually added.
Even if that weren't true, all the in-universe justification in the world doesn't make it any less shit gameplay-wise.
>>22399953 >day & night cycle on a fucking game boy game >introduces two new types, more than any other gen >fixes all gen I glitches and shit, nerfs psychic type hard >FUCKING BREEDING >first game that allows you to equip items to your pokemon >only game with two regions & 16 gyms >expecting each region to be as full of content as sequels with only one region is just plain retard >probably the only games without terrible graphics (compare R/S to Golden Sun or D/P to any FF remake)
Yeah, Gen 3 contests and lack of night and Gen 4 amazing graphics and plot are much better.
>>22400395 >Hoothoot is Pidgey >implying owls are birds Seriously though you're either touched in the head or ten years old >perfect early game regional bird to show off the new day/night cycle >massive Psychic type movepool that Pidgeot has no part of >to this day unique in that its the only regional bird who can Hypnosis/Dream Eater I'll let you have Ratatta = Sentret but that's a huge stretch and you know it. If anything Ratatta = Patrat.
>introduces breeding but forgets to introduce a point to babby pokemon >introduces hold items but only introduces one worth using (lefties meta forever) >introduces day/night and uses it almost exclusively as a way to make Pokemon with 2% appearance chances even harder to find >adds new Pokemon but they suck shit >adds Dark type and makes it Special while creating primarily Physical Pokemon for it >adds Steel type and forgets to even try balancing it >two regions but they're both empty as shit and the main one is halfassed as fuck obviating the point >16 gyms, the latter half of which are so weak as to be literal jokes >leaves Psychic in such a state of disrepair it's not taken seriously again until Gen 5
>>22400746 The point is not that they're exact clones- none of the regional birds are exact clones. The point is that they fill the same role. You can't claim gen 2 avoided remaking generic shitmons and claim later gens did, because gen 2 hits all the same notes.
