Anyway... BW2. Gen V had great Pokemon, and I really love the character and atmosphere of Unova, which BW2 only improved on. Coupled with one of the better postgames in the series, it's pretty easily my favorite.
I started with Gen1 to Gen3. I stopped playing for over a decade. I decided to try and pick it up again and bought a used copy of Pearl, it sucked and I couldn't get into how slow it was. About a year and a half later I purchased Platinum and I couldn't put the game down. The played through Soul Silver and that was better than Platinum play through because I remembered loving Crystal so much. I'm on my Gen 5 play through now and just recently finished Black, I loved how all the Pokemon were new and I have some new favorites, plus, not needing HM slaves to finish and game and no zubats in crappy caves.
Currently I'm on my 2nd gym badge in White 2 and once I'm done with that onto Gen 6! So, to sum up, Platinum would have to be my fav as it brought me back to playing the franchise.
Gen 2 was favorite. 2 regions to visit Fighting red I liked having the pokemon follow me outside. Team Rocket The Pokeathon (this was the best shit, it reminded of the Pokemon Stadium mini games) The PokeWalker (I still use this. Even at work, I keep it on my belt, nice pedometer.)
>>25038199 Not the poster you're responding to, but in my case, I'd say it was the "freshness" of it. Entirely new Pokemon in BW, a very different region, and at least for me personally, the unlimited TM change really opened up a lot of new possibilities and made the game a lot more fun to play through.
BW2, love just about everything in the games. Played through B2 and later sucked myself into getting W2 to play through with a different and on Challenge mode. The only thing bad about these games is how Challenge mode was implimented.
>>25038199 New Pokémon (although I admit gen 5 was outside gen 1 the only gen where I didn't know the new Pokémon beforehand), great rivals (Bianca/Cheren) who had some character development and some places were really great (Nimbasa). And for Pokémon standards, I liked the plot.
Besides, Pearl was too slow for me and was not a fan of the many new Pokémon hidden until postgame. Also, too many legendaries. And the original Johto games only got interesting for me when I reached Kanto. That didn't change for HGSS.
HGSS. Im replaying it for the third time, and I still love it. Gen 2 is my favorite, except for maybe 5, and the only problem I have with it is the slowness. Also, walking around with your pokemon made it so you could actually feel attached to them, (it was the only game where I did,) instead of just using the top pokemon from a Smogon list.
I wish Platinum would get romhacked into Gen6 or something. Sinnoh was by far my favorite region. The one thing I didn't like about it, and pokemon in general is the serial escalation of Pokemon threatening to destroy the world and adding a million legendaries every generation.
Unpopular opinion. I wouldn't say Alpha Sapphire is my favorite game, but it's definitely up there. I'm saying this because of that and the fact that it's an unpopular opinion. Reasons: >turned a meh game into a great game >more megas >3D because I'm a pleb that cares about graphics >all those new 'mons in Hoenn >ability to catch like 70% of all legendaries >obligatory muh waifu qtfication redesign >updated soundtrack >dexnav I don't see people's issues other than, >"muh bf"
>comfy ass GBA grafix that are simple enough to be charming, but complex enough that you can actually tell what everything is >fucking lovely soundtrack >Good selection of new mons, most of my favorites are from gen 3 >Good variety/selection of different environments >Phoebe
It's simple, but effective. Honestly I don't see why it's one of the most hated games, it's definitely not bad.
X/Y. After beating the E4 and doing the post game facility a bit I get bored and start a new game. I've played through X/Y up to ten times with different teams and it's been enjoyable every time. Having 450 pokemon to choose from pre-national dex made the replayability go through the roof for me.
Definitely Platinum. I really liked the selection of pokemon available, the story, Team Galactic (mainly Cyrus and Mars), the fun little bonus things like contests, ball capsules, and the unown, the region itself, and the game's music. I can elaborate on this stuff if you guys want, feel free to ask about specific topics that I mentioned and I'll elaborate.
I liked how they intertwined both Aqua and Magma instead of having one be the main villanious team and the other one just sit on the sidelines. I also liked the gym revamps and the gym rematches, as well as the trainer rematch system. It's no Vs. Seeker but it's a hell of a lot better than GSC/HGSS rematch system.
And of course the itroduction of the Battle Frontier.
>Side Games >Gale of Darkness
an improvement of colosseum in almost every wau and also a bit more challenging as well in some aspects.
>>25038066 >FRLG I still love Gen 1 for its lore and melancholic atmosphere compared to later gens, and FRLG really improved its quality for the better. Not to mention how much of an improvement the OST got with that Ichinose treatment, along with the whole Sevii Islands extension. In fact I actually get more nostalgia for the FRLG arrangements of the Johto songs than from GSC to begin with.
>all 3 starters have dual typing >game's story is about metaphysics >2D/3D done right unlike BW/BW2 >great in game Pokemon selection >contests (not that I participate but it's an option) >pokeradar >battle frontier >battle island
>>25041533 >your favorite game >everything takes place between 1-70 in the game >exp engine is gimped so it takes 25 years to level up >wow this scaling is so fucking good I seriously hope gen 5 fags die painful deaths. You guys have such shit taste. Do you just east nothing but American mayonnaise and durians? Inb4 hurrrr le genwunner
>>25038066 Platinum, firstly because of Sinnoh; it feels geographically "real" and has a lot of culture to it. It's a challenging region to traverse with a lot of value and rewards for exploring. Hell, you can get Earthquake TM after the second gym if you're crafty. The wild Pokemon selection is great as well. It's got a good mix of new and old with day/night and honey trees making Pokemon hunting feel more organic and varied.
>>25038066 Emerald I loved battle frontier (Got almost all gold symbols), Hoenn's structure and music, and I was really active in Pokemon tournaments/Competitive and shinies' hunt in the 3rd Gen so I got most of my multiplayer's memories here.
Platinum. Sinnoh is easily my favorite region, I love the comfy winter clothes that the characters wear, and the music is incredible, especially with the day/night differences. The difficulty is pretty good for a Pokemon game and the post-game is solid, plus it's the game I played the most competitively. Also, it has the best waifus.
>>25041596 This. Tropical region was sonfucking fun to play through, battle frontier was fun. But my opinion my be a bit colored becuase gen 3 is when I transitioned from "everyone is playing Pokemon so I guess I am" to "ok let's figure out what's what and get hard core".
>>25042007 Personally I liked the SS/HG interface where they put basically all options all the time down there. Instead of holding down the b button to run I could just toggle it, etc. Was hoping ORAS would bring that back along with the poketch radar and other addons, in a way I guess they kinda did but I was hoping for more
