No gen 2 really had a lot of heart and soul into it. Look at ruins of Alph, gender, breeding, hold items, Suicune, roaming, new evolutions, day and night, shinies. Then gen 3 added abilities and natures, not gen 1.5 it exploded the series forwards, then held back by R/S

>>
>>25062485
Just play the games and note how you feel playing them.

I honestly think you can skip the original gen 1 for FR/LG its enough of a faithful remake that you don't really lose anything by skipping the originals.

However, if you're going to play the original make sure you know how its mechanics differ from later installments and make the most of it. It's pretty important for judging the game as a game.

>>
>>25062543
The original gen 2 was top notch atmosphere and feel
>>
>>25062470
I think Gen II gets too much of a free pass. While it did introduce some good mechanics and features it barely featured the new pokemon, and many of them weren't too great as far as usefulness goes. Johto was pretty empty for the most part. You can tell the inclusion of Kanto costed them. I almost just consider it an extension of Gen 1.

At least R/S feels like a real sequel with a more distinct flavor.
>>
>>25062531
Maybe after I play through Gen II I'll do HGSS? Just because although they're faithful remakes, they do have a different feel to them?

>>25062536
I was thinking that too, might just play FR because it's prettier and just skip the Sevii Islands? Or maybe I'll just play it after I play Red and see how the feel comparatively? And yeah, I know all about how Gen I has different mechanics and is buggy as fuck. Red was my first game when I was like, 4. I can play the older games without worrying about the special/physical split, natures, and all that.
>>
>>25061740

Just more stuff in them. They are considered the best games by /vp/. Just still play them in order i guess
>>
>>25062592

>distribution of Johto mons is bs though

Probably the one thing that bugged me about HG/SS is that they were no longer as limited as when they were making Gen II and could have easily fixed this. They adjusted the distribution ever so slightly but it really wasn't enough. Maybe that was to keep it more faithful to the originals but it's essentially porting over an unnecessary flaw for the sake of nostalgia if that's the case.

Gen 3 fan here. Gen 5 is my second favorite Gen.

I put Gen 3 and Gen 5 on top, and one of the many reasons is that I think these are the Gens that took a risks to break unwritten rules Pokemon has.

I like B/W2, but kind of hated B/W. I don't even know why, but B/W feels like such a slogfest later in the game. I find it hard to stay interested in the later parts, which shouldn't be the case.

Gen 2 is the FF7 of the Pokemon franchise.

A good game in many respects, but ultimately overrated as shit because nostalgiafags refuse to acknowledge its shortcomings. And they are numerous.

>>25068647
Also for the record the remakes fixed nothing.
>>
>>25068647

>>
>>25068660
Genwunners are trend chasers that played the original games because it was the cool thing to do back in 1998. The second "Pokemania" ended they moved on from the series and never came back. You mostly encounter them in the form of irl normies or retards on YouTube, Facebook, etc.

Johtoddlers on the other hand are still with us. They're the Genwunners that didn't move on with the series. They are literally fucking everywhere on the internet, especially on /vp/. I rarely come across the former, but you just can't get away from the latter around here.

So while my post applies to Gen 1 as well, it's ultimately the lesser of two evils.
>>
Gen 2 and 5 were the best. This coming from someone who played gen 3 first.

They shouldn't even be considered a generation. They're just a step down from gen 4.

It definitely did the most damage to the series's reputation. If you see mainlines becoming more and more linear, you can thank Gen 5 for that.
>>
>>25061740
Definitely. /vp/ just enjoys being contrarian.

>>25074011
Don't forget reducing the number of Gym leader Pokemon to 3 and E4 to 4. And making the games forever piss easy through experience boosting items/Pokemon.

Unpopular opinion time:

I don't think gen 6 was that bad

I feel like gen V is a game that just barely missed out on being great but suffered greatly from it, like a missed high jump kick. Like for starters who thought an oval region was a good idea.

Worse gen? No. I thought it was the best. It felt like a different kind of pokemon game. It did a lot of things differently. It looked great and was fun to play (had a awesome soundtrack too).

Gen 6 is the worse. How the hell do they just go backwards like that?
>>
(1.) Gen 4 had a bad start, but corrected itself by the end along with Gen 5 so they'd have to be at the top. Best spinoffs released.

(2.) Gen 2 and 3 didn't correct much honestly, despite interesting mechanics or changes, so it'd have to be mid-tier range. Pokemon were unmemorable due to awful distribution and/or odd design.

(3.) Gen 1 and 6 were very lackluster in many departments with very low replay value due to virtually no postgame, unmemorable characters and only supported by good Pokemon design. Epitome of what a Pokemon game shouldn't be.

Gen 4 and 5 were high points in the series.
ORAS was a slight step in the right direction, but Gen 6 is irredeemable now.
>>
>>25077393
If you're being objective about it then Gen 1 isn't going to be very high on the totem pole. I think people are giving it a pass already and they can be much harsher on it still.

First part of Jojo is often ranked the lowest, and it's really not uncommon to do this in a long running franchise. Pokemon's western fanbase is way too obsessed with the days of Pokemani. Cancerously so.

Well for Gen 3, it introduced a more varied region. Not hating on Kanto and Johto (which I like as well), but to me they are pretty simplistic regions (though they do have things that stand out). Hoenn on the other hand has a more varied landscape compared to the first 2 regions.

Plot related (I know, Pokemon doesn't have the best plots, but I still enjoy them), Gen 3 was the first game that introduced the "evil team(s) uses Legendary Pokemon for their goals" formula. Sure, that formula may have been overdone to death in later generations, but around Gen 3 this concept was new for Pokemon. I could also go into mechanics but I think that's obvious.

Now on to Gen 5, which is mainly plot related. It may not be the best plot ever, but it has to be my favorite plot in the Pokemon games (minus the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon games). What I liked about it is that it questions the morale of catching Pokemon. Is it the right thing to do? What I also liked is that it actually changed a thing about the "8 Gyms, beat the Champ" formula which every main series Pokemon has. It may not be much, but the Champion not being the final boss I think is really awesome.

All and all I like Gen 3 and Gen 5 the most because they tried to be vastly different then the other Gens in my eyes.

What I really liked about this gen is that is was easy to complete the pokedex. If you had Platinum and HG/SS it was easy. They also added a critical capture element.
Post game was good, Story was good, designs were creative more so in the second game, double wild battles, triple battles, seasons, I enjoyed it.
