The starters. Has to be the most powerful starter trio conceived.

Cyrus
Pokewalker
Auto run button
Pokes following you
Sinnoh(most diverse and largest region)
Arceus/darkrai/togekiss/weavile/etc
Poketch
Wifi

It may have added more than any other gen has.

platinum was great

i don't blame you for perceiving gen 4 as bad because they had to taint it with gen 2 remakes

Let's not forget the incredible OST. Galactic Commander Theme is one of the best.

Also, Platinum is one of the best and most well-rounded games I the series, if you ask me.

Interestingly, the starters all had a STAB way to combat the one they were weak to.
Torterra had ground
Infernape had fighting (to combat steel)
Empoleon had steel, or something.

HG/SS
Some of the pokemon
Some of the music

And that's about all. Other than that, I pretty much agree with you

The Physical/Special Split.

You know, the best thing to come out of anything Pokemon related ever.


I agree completely, to me this was huge! Also the pokeradar and vs seeker. And Cynthia.

why are people saying gen 2 remakes were a good part of gen 4

HG/SS are literally the only bad thing about gen 4 (and D/P's sloooooooow pace but that was fixed)
