Which Pokemon game has the best gameplay, world, story, and replayability?
Emerald or Platinum has the best gameplay.
Platinum had the best world.
BW had the best story. That's not even up for debate.
Replayability is completely subjective. FRLG might take that, though, simply for the updated classic experience it delivers.
It's been the same since it started...
Hoenn. I like the diversity of the towns and the sheer amount of sidequests and exploration.
I actually liked XY's story, but if it's not drastically improved in Z then I'll go with RGBYFRLG. I liked the simple idea of the mafia boss owning everything and taking control. And the whole nature vs technology thing, although that wasn't really shoved in our faces.
BW had a good amount for me purely because there was 150 new Pokemon to use.
Other than that, HGSS.
I liked Platinum the most of all games and it was the game I replayed several times completing challenge where I have to play several times without having same Pokemon on my team twice. It never got boring tho. So my vote goes to Platinum.
unfortunatelly it actually got lost when I moved and once I found it it wouldnt work anymore
When you mindlessly call Gen I the best just because of nostalgia or because it started it all? That's when you're a stupid fanboy and when that label comes into play.
Anything after gen 3. The phys/spec split was the most important change for me, personally. Finally, moves work the way they feel they should. Beyond that the mechanics are exactly the same so who the fuck cares.
Whichever is largest? The world of pokemon is pretty generic no matter how you slice it.
If you prefer simpler stories
like I do, Gens 1/2 for sure. You're just trying to become the pokemon champion, and a realistic and believable villainous organization gets in the way. None of that YOU ARE THE CHOSEN ONE, SAVE THE WORLD WITH THE HELP OF THIS ANCIENT MAGICAL GOD shit.
If you like the grander stories, then probably gen 5, since those games actually tried, plot-wise.
Whichever one you personally like best, desu
Gen 4 and Gen 5. Gen 4 had the hardest games and great campaign and Gen 5 had the fastest games.
Gen 3 and 4.
Gen 4 and Gen 5.
I'm not putting Gen 1 or 2 here because their remakes are straight better games, so when I say Gen 3 and 4, I'm including FRLG and HGSS on that Generation.
Sorry, anon. I tried to make my post as non-inflammatory as possible.
It's not a meme, though. I genuinely don't like the new plots in which you have to save the world from ancient magic. If you do, that's fine. But you have to admit that that's what the plot is.
Being "The Chosen One" is. In BW the protagonist is only called that as a fancy way of saying they've proven themselves as a trainer to oppose whoever has the other Legendary that's revered and getting to have their own.
Every other instance is just being an exceptional trainer and the only one conveniently around who can set shit straight at the moment. Nothing speshul snowflake about it at all.
It doesn't have to be explicit or intentional. It just has to work out that way in practice. And that's how the plots of gens 3-6 have worked out, in practice. You're not saving a region from criminals, you're saving the WORLD from ANNIHILATION (or at least, sufficiently destructive grand disruptions). Even if it's not explicitly happening "because you're the chosen one," it's functionally the same thing.
And that just doesn't appeal to me.
And I'll clarify: I still like the games, in general. The mechanics are good, and the marginal improvements GF makes to each successive gen are appreciated. I just enjoyed the simpler plots more.
You don't need to justify yourself. You prefer simpler plots. Big deal.
You acknowledge BW had good storytelling rather than saying it was shit just because you didn't like it and twisting everything to make excuses. That's what separates you from a retard. It's simply a preference for a humble adventure.
Anything post gen IV. I can't go back to non-split damage types. Other than that, gameplay is so similar that there's not much distinction
Sinnoh is my favorite. Crystal/hg/ss are close though
Team galactic for having the most ridiculous, retarded plan
Gen IV games due to having the best battle frontier
The worst part is you're so retarded you repeated the exact same shitty post. You're a disgrace. Just stop posting. You're only humiliating yourself with this level of stupidity.
>le "X spinoff game is better than the main-series games" meme
you're entitled to your opinions, but you're not as cool or unique as you think you are
>i got mad at the guy who likes the games that are older than me and when i told him to stop talking he didnt!
>but im totally a mature adult who is capable of holding a rational discussion! waaah! waaah!
And so is Gen III and V. There is no best generation. They all have their own strengths and flaws.
I acknowledge what Gen I did well to lay foundations for the rest of the series without letting my nostalgia blind me. Pokemon has only improved despite whatever flaws new generation might have had up until XY happened.
Wow. Fucking wow.
Is it so hard to simply say you prefer Gen I to everything else?
I'm not sure how you could say one Pokémon (main series) game has better gameplay than another. Aren't they all the same?
World: Perhaps GSC. I really like the Johto atmosphere, though some find it bland. I like the way it's nothing over the top, and I like the subtle lore/history surrounding the unown and the legendary beasts/lugia and ho-oh.
Story: I suppose you'd have to say B2/W2, considering other games didn't have much of a story at all. Which doesn't bother me, btw. 5th gen definitely had to most content storywise though. And I enjoyed it, though it was a bit childish, but what can you expect.
Replayability: Perhaps Platinum. It's hard to believe how old 4th gen is, considering how well it's aging. You've got a great Battle Facility, gym leader rematches, a powerful league, you've got that villa to toy with, a nice few legendaries to hunt, lots of Pokémon to catch and lots of unique methods to find them. Personally, I think I've the most hours clocked on gen 4. I can't put down HGSS for replayability though, that lack of high leveled wild-pokémon is crippling.
I've barely even seen gen 1 fans give points about why the like it or shit like that.
It's just "Gen 1's the best and if you don't agree you're automatically shit XD"
At least fucking say why you like it or whatever, and don't be an obnoxious fuck while you're at it.
>accusing me of being a Gen V fanboy out of nowhere for defending what it did right
Goddamn, you're retarded. You can't even argue it had anything but the most replayability while basically everything else was done better in later generations yet you get so obnoxious about it.
It's got more shit than R/S. You're still hung up on Emerald.
But that's irrelevant. Mega Evolution and the Fairy-type were two huge additions, and they're present in OR/AS. Not to mention smaller things like the Steel nerfs.
As far as the raw battle mechanics go, they're the best in the series.
For the overworld, the only good things missing from previous installments were togglable running shoes and trainer customisation. The Dexnav was one of the best things they've ever added, and soaring was a great alternative to wasting a move slot on fly.
It was nice to have a game without a shitty gimmick like honey trees or Pokemon that can only be found if you play during a certain month.
It had good new mechanics. That doesn't change no fucking postgame, the same Pokedex and only Mauville getting an actual update. They took remake too literally and it's sickening to see how outdated everything looks. They virtually remade the same game except for 3DS and essentially watered everything down for people "who spend less time playing games" most of all the difficulty being virtually nonexistent.
I don't give a fuck about Battle Frontier, especially when it was left intact by not being in ORAS.
The main point of contention here is that I'm divorcing gameplay and design decisions and you're not.
No post-game ties into story and replayability.
The same Pokedex is par the course for remakes, but at least they added Gen IV evolutions like Gallade.
Not messing with Hoenn too much is a preference thing. How "outdated" it looks has absolutely nothing to do with gameplay.
