Why do people seem to not like the Gen 4 games?

I love the gen 4 games. Diamond and Pearl were very slow yes but Platinum and Heart Gold were superb games.

Just play a gen 5 game then play a Gen 4 game right after. It makes the absurd slowness of gen 4 very obvious. Any random battle will take at least 2-3 times longer.

Its true that its slower, and i was really glad Gen V sped things up, but i really loved Gen IV. It was the Gen that brought me back to Pokemon and i thought it looked so great on the DS. That and i was pretty hyped for it before hand.

Platinum was probably my favorite pokemon game.

As you guys already said, it is indeed slow. In DP Starly's cry (worth mentioning) takes a looong time to execute. Plus a Flash-wannabe was added in the name of Defog. The mapping is also bad;some patches of grass are scattered throughout the other routes.

Even with all of this, Sinnoh contains my favorite Pokemon; Magnezone!!!!!

I loved HG/SS because Gold and Silver are my favorite Pokemon games.


But DPP had awful music (not as bad as RSE), uneventful areas, and boring gym leaders and Elite 4. The early game pokemon were not too great to me, either.

^ You're right about what you said about the Gym Leaders. By the time I got to Maylene, I realized she had no particular emotion (specially once you beat her, she just keeps on saying "um").

However, you kinda bugged me when you said RSE has worse music than DPP. Compare the Surfing themes, Bike themes, Wild Battle Themes, Trainer Battle Themes, and VICTORY ROAD Themes. I bet you'll realized you're wrong.

I remember when Gen 3 had all of the hate.

First time I disliked Pokémon was when I played Platinum. Disliked it even so much I entirely skipped over gen 5. But am willing to give gen 6 a try.
The battle system being too friggin' slow is what killed Platinum for me.
