Everything about Gen IV is slow. Getting your starter, Battles, Surfing, Plot.


I didn't notice any of these things lol.

Platinum > HG/SS

Introduced the most useful starters.
Poketch is actually useful unlike Pokegear.
Useful Pokes like Staraptor, Toxicroak and Garchomp.
Sinnoh region is complete unlike HG/SS Kanto/Johto.
Evolutions made crap Pokemon useful like Magnezone, Weavile and Yanmega.
Better selection of Pokemon than HG/SS.

I'm honestly not sure. I feel like platinum was the pinnacle of the series for its time.

You do realize that HG/SS Kanto region was just like the Kanto region in RBY - cinnebar island and a nerfed Mt moon. Jhoto was fixed up so it would have a Safari zone and Kanto had the pal park, which let you transfer pokemon more then once a day unlike Platinum.

You could evolve any pokemon in HG/SS, that means Weavile/ Yamega and others if they learned the right moves and had the right item.

Both game had a battle frontier/ and even though HG/SS had a horrid level curve, training high level pokemon was a lot easier due to the E4 rematches being on a higher level and Red being able to be fought after every visit unlike your rival who could only be fought on the weekend

Gym leader rematches were a pain to scheduled, but once you do you could fight them over and over again within the time frame. That could be over two hours of level grinding against a certain type if you knew what you were doing.

I won't go into useful pokemon, but there were plenty in HG/SS, you could technically could get a lavitar before Mt Silver if you used the safari zone.

I can't imagine the Pokemon games without the Physical / Special split tbh, that was a really huge hit of love to me. Also, it probably has the best post game content imo.

I love all of the generations tbh. While each Gen has their own flaws, each of them are individually unique in certain aspects and have their own specific charm.

I don't see how too many legendaries is a complaint...
Slow?


Because Legendaries suck and usually have some of the worst design in the series.

Gen IV is infamous for being extremely slow especially in battle.

Too many HMs.

Sloooooow.


I do remember HMs being a problem... Never thought of that...

There is only 107 new pokemon in Gen 4 which is more then Gen 2, however.

14 legends were in Gen 4. That means almost 20% of the pokemon were legends, about half of them were in the uber class.
