Gen 1 Pokemon definitely haven't changed from what I noticed. You're comparing Pokemon that weren't all that strong to begin with even in the original Red/Blue to a starter in its second form. That's not a fair comparison. I never used Koffing/Weezing nor Psyduck/Golduck in any of the games I've played. --- Pokemon Black 2 FC: Zareth - 4256 2465 9359
Gen one Pokemon weren't made "weak". The new ones just happen to have their stats distributed in all the right places. Few have great stat distributions since gen 1, Starmie and Gengar. Thanks to that speed they can still remain useful.
The only way the old gen Pokemon can be saved is have their stats redistributed. All the new gen Pokes just hit way harder than before. Conkledurr out damages Machamp, Boufallant outdamages Tauros. Machamp at least has DynamicPunch to go with so he still has his niche. If only he kept that Fissure from gen 1.... --- This is a sig. Yup.
Not.... Exactly true when you considered that Conkeldurr usually uses Drain Punch
Its actualy WEAKER than even Lucario most of the time
But overall your post is accurate
Look at Pidgeot, Nidoking, Nidoqueen, etc
Some of pokemon who, with proper stats distribution would be much better than they are now
Pidgeot can Hurri Spam Nidoking and Queen is more justified since they were a mixed attacker, but giving them more SpA, Speed, and Defenses to work with instead of their 90 average stats will do wonder Lapras needs some speed and better typing
Gen 5 has imbalanced spread, but its overall better than gen 1, let alone gen 2 --- Real Metal bounces their breast. Deal with it
Most of the old pokes got great dw abilities to boost them. Nidoking with sheer force is amazing. It doesn't need it's stats boosted. --- I'm calling you an elitist, but I'm just gonna go ahead and leave a snooty remark as I go. I am wutz good SS FC: 4598 9525 2106 Black 0991 3491 6739
