>>25044612 Gen 5 had the best main games and the worst spin offs (with exception of Pokémon Conquest).
In Gen 6 this is flipped and main games are low-tier games compared to previous Gens and the spin offs are the best in the franchise (with exception of Pokémon Rumble World, Pokémon Shuffle, Pokémon Picross, and Pokémon GO which are utter shit and only try to suck people's money)
>>25045219 >Gen 5 distanced itself too much from previous entries and tried to do its own thing, alienating casualfags and change adverse autists >X & Y brought them back with the shiny new 3D visuals and by applying liberal amounts of pandering and nostalgia And most of them will leave come Gen 7 if they haven't already
- Origins anime about "the good old days" ends up being a glorified commercial for the games and Mega evolution - Kanto starters holding mega stones - Viridian forest copypaste - Scripted Pidgey encounter as your first pokémon - Snorlax blocks the road again! I wonder if I have to look for the pokéflute? - Lapras gift - 6th gym is a teleporter puzzle with the same layout as Sabrina's - Spinner tiles in villain's hideout - Roaming Kanto birds - An "Unknown Dungeon" containing Mewtwo, except with none of the effort put into the original - Probably a lot more I'm forgetting
XY was sold on the fact that it was the first 3D pokémon game and GF wanted that nostalgia money so bad that they went absolutely nuts with the Gen 1 pandering. Think what you will of it, whether you think it's a positive or a negative thing, but THAT's a fact.
Gen V had a great pokedex and from an aesthetic and mechanical standpoint the best gameplay to date in any Pokemon game.
It also had dogshit characters, writing, story and world design, and pioneered the awful trend of every character in the world telling you what a wonderful and special trainer you are. It also paved the way for the friends from XY.
Also the meta was ass because le weather wars and button spam.
None of the pokemon games are good, most are flat out bad, and the only reason they're tolerated is because people like the monsters and world themselves and the games are the only way we can interact with them.
>>25046815 >quality over quantity regional dex Gen V's dex was twice as large as gen VI"s and had WAY more good pokemon, even proportionally speaking. Gen VI has 3 good pokemon in its entire dex; Aegislash, Pangoro and Hawlucha.
>>25046815 Replay it. I did and I didn't have any fun, it was really half assed asides from the models. Let's look at things it took away 1. Challenge Mode 2. NPC interactions since platinm we've seen gym leaders leave their gyms and talk to us, only Korrina in X and Y 3. Post Game (looker is alright, but no battle ground/Resort/extra half of the region LET ALONE BATTLE FRONTIER 4. Gym Leader Rematches 5. The character models look bad now..... 6. Elite 4 rematches 7. Casual places ie. avenues/Contest/underground Shall I go on?
>>25046443 Passable like a kidney stone. Gen 3 started terrible story telling in pokemon games, gen 4 improved in terrible story telling in pokemon games, but it was gen 5 that perfected terrible story telling in pokemon games. Gen 6 is less perfect than gen 5 at terrible story telling in pokemon games, but it's still pretty great at it.
>>25046870 I was 16 when X and Y came out, and bought myself 3ds a with my shitty highschool job right before 2ds was announced. I played FRLG + Emerald and R/B/Y, and was shitty at it and I've slowly played all the games back slowly, and B2/W2 +HGSS/C are hands down the best games with the most content. I was able to beat Champions tournament the second time I played W2 no legendaries needed, before that I played X and felt so empty and confused where the fun was
gen I is, comparatively, fucking garbage that hasn't aged well. They are good games, but there is no excuse to say it is the best gen out of hipster faggotry
Gen III had the best world, so many things to explore and find made things interesting
Gen IV was the worst. Bad selection of pokemon, bad pokemon design, bad level design (HM saturation).
Platinum was the most difficult main pokemon game by a fucking mile
Gen V was the best gen, they actually went to the effort of making a good story that wasn't simply "go and be the champion" and the pokemon actually had useful movesest learned by leveling, so you could actually create the team that you wanted.
Gen VI would have been a fucking disaster if it wasn't because ORAS was the best remake and great games
to finish, the best things of each gen: 1-The glitches 2-The lenght and separation between physical and special attack and defense 3-The exploration and may 4-The separation between special and physical moves. The difficulty of platinum 5- The pokemon dinally learning usable moves by leveling, the story 6-Moving in diagonal. Character customization
