Gen 5 the worst generation?

Does Gen 2 get hate for the pokemon, or the game itself. Cause honestly I thought gen 2 had the best game though you could easily argue gen 3 had it too. Those were the two I enjoyed the most personally.

Pretty sure it's backlash. When Gen 2 came about, everyone thought that the trip back to Kanto made the game huge, then people started to realize how bare bones Kanto and how under developed Johto were and that popularity bit back. Still not as bad as RBY, but still.

2nd gen is my favorite. >.>

I'd pick gen 3 or 4 to be the worst.

gen 2 was the best. its the one that introduced pretty much EVERY feature that has become a staple of the series. every gen after that just built on it.

gen 1 was pretty bad. i mean it was amazing at the time and i still love it but compared the the newer gens? no way would i let nostalgia blind me.

i also see a lot of people bash gen 3 and im not sure why. it wasnt all that bad imo.

id probably put the gens something like this

2>5>3>1>4

Yeah? I was born in '91 and started with the same games.

What's so bad about Gen II?

Night/Day system, which sadly was never reused properly.

Breeding Pokemon/Poke Eggs.

100 new Pokemon that didn't suck ass.

TWO regions, one game. 16 Gyms

COLOR GRAPHICS

Shiny's.

Slowpoke tails.

Better means of transportation.

Etc etc etc. The games took everything great about the first three and pumped it with steroids.


I agree completely.

Gen 3 was the worst.
What made it worse is that it stripped away features like the day and night system. Also, there was wayy too much water.

Here's my personal opinion more based on enjoyment than actual technical stuff that people bring in which i can understand why people have their views.

2=3>5>1>4

Personally I just didn't enjoy 4 all too much. It wasn't bad it just doesn't really stand out as a game that I would want to replay. If it wasn't for B/W 2 I would've put 5 at the bottom easily though. Hated the fact I had to wait till post game in B/W to find any other gen pokemon in the wild.
