So TC you looked at about 5 pokemon out of the 499 added since gen 1 and say they all are bad? wow fail topic is a fail
You are just mad that your nostalgia can see the good in anything new and are orced to thing the crud of gen 1 is the best. Yes it started the series and quite a few are great looking like scyther, chraizard or the legendaries for instance. But quite a few are easily forgotten and others are so terrible that they almost can't be used
TC, just cause you like 1 gen doesnt make it better, and hate to break it to you, but there are only gonna be more pokemon in the future.
As for the post gen 1 pokemon, in my opinion most of them look and play fantastic so you can go suck one.
SO please go back to your nostalgia room where you can be cut off from modern times --- PSN howling_red
For certain the first generation was the one that is MOST OFTEN the icon that is associated with Pokemon. For me, I have only completed the VERY FIRST and just recently though I have played off and on and only had my first exposure with the first run. I have particular problem with the latest, though I associate first and easiest with the first generation. I plan to play through all generations, and hate spoilers, so I have purposely kept the newer pokemon a secret as long as possible. I have of necessity had exposure to some of the new ones, and so far they are still entertaining and some QUITE CHARMING. This could be because I take them in stride and don't just try to bolt down all the pokemon at once...Getting to know the pokemon is definitely an important step in acceptance though...
