Introducing more doesn't amount to s*** if it wasn't implemented well.

Night/Day system, which sadly was never reused properly.
Oh yay, a system that limits when I can catch things depending upon when I can play. Too bad I have a job/class/whatever and can't play in the morning/at night.
Seasons is even worse.
Breeding Pokemon/Poke Eggs.
Which was vastly improved upon in later generations, most of all in Emerald and Gen IV/V.
100 new Pokemon that didn't suck ass.
Opinion. I hate the Gen II pokemon except for a few like Tyranitar and Scizor.
TWO regions, one game. 16 Gyms
The two regions completely sucked. Johto was stripped bare due to the inclusion of Kanto. If Johto had been by itself, it would've been a much better game. Also, two regions completely destroyed the level scaling in the game.
COLOR GRAPHICS Shiny's. Slowpoke tails.

Emerald makes up for it with the amazing Battle Frontier!
Gen 4 was another amazing generation. Definitely one of my other favorites.
Gen I was big on nostalgia, but I had much more fun with Gold + Diamond :)
Emerald had the best Battle Frontier by far. Platinum and Heart Gold/Soul SIlver's Battle Frontier's dissapointed me by how small and uninteresting they are compared to Emerald's Battle Frontier. --- http://www.last.fm/user/awesome_user
