- Really imbalanced Pokemon choices, some are great but some are downward terrible or has terrible design - Terribad Pokemon cries - Too slow, although Platinum fixed it - Contests aren't as great as the Gen III ones

I liked it, and how on earth is it less diverse than Hoenn? Including both Battle Frontiers, Sinnoh has more kinds of lands, its own water routes, its own hidden areas, and a vastly larger Ice-based region. Sinnoh is the more diverse of the two. Hoenn is mostly shoreline and islands.
Oddly Sinnoh's lakes are an aspect that it has and Hoenn lacks.
Plus Sinnoh allowed people to obtain a couple Pokemon that could only be gained through trading previously, Gengar and Steelix.

People really mostly hate it because it's not the new generation anymore. Once gen 6 rolls around, you'll get people saying the exact same things about gen 5, just because it's not new and shiny and exciting.
I personally really loved Sinnoh -- Platinum especially.
TOTALLY, TOTALLY NOT HOME ROWED http://i.minus.com/ibzHrFPfAJFyCQ.gif
A combination of the following reasons is why people hate gen 4. Note that I don't agree with all of them, I'm just going to list the most common complaints.
-Introduced Stealth Rock -Introduced Cynthia, a blatant fanservice character who has been in every single pokemon game since for no real reason other than fanservice -Introduced a lot of unecessary and ugly evolutions -Smogon became the dominant metagame site -Introduced the concept of God in pokemon via Arceus -You were forced to carry two specific HM slaves (Bibarel and Skarmory) to get anywhere in-game -Defog set a new low for the "utterly useless move that you're forced to teach to your pokemon if you want to keep playing" -Overall bad pokemon and human characters designs (Team Galactic and Fantina stand out in particular) -The pixie trio is considered the worst legendary trio so far, mostly because of their mono-psychic typing and similiar movepools -The metagame revolved almost entirely around dragon- and steel-types, especially in OU
It's quite simple. Most Sinnoh haters are Hoenn enthusiasts and are generally annoyed because Hoenn quite rightly didn't get it's remake.
Sinnoh was awesome especially when it came to the back story of the Legendaries (Although there far too many) an awesome champion a great selection of Pokemon that reincorporated Gen I Pokemon by giving them strong evolutions and some awesome new ones like Lucario, Rotom & Spiritomb.
