What do you love/hate about Gen 5?

Love:
- The music.
- The story.
- Most of the pokemon designs.
- Being able to use TMs as much as I want.
- Challenge Mode.
- The slightly improved graphics.
- Likable rivals.
- Easier way to level up your pokemon.

Hate:
- How boring the region was.
- Dreamworld.
- A few pokemon designs. Namely Zoroark, the whole Timburr line, Garbodor and Genesect.
- Unova Pokemon only during White.

I hate how a lot of the TM's are only obtained through BP, and that list was only expanded in Black 2 and White 2. I hate how the Dream World is used as a tool to drive traffic to their website.

I love everything else about it. Fifth Generation has actually been one of my favorite generations so far, and that's saying a LOT. The overall quality-of-life and aesthetic imrpovements over Fourth Gen were a huge step in the right direction for me. Black 2 and White 2 are, so far, my favorite Pokemon games to date. Black Skycraper, White Treehollow, Unova Link, Infrared Box-to-Box trading from anywhere (not just a Pokemon Center), animated battle sprites, and a slough of other things have really reforged this series into an even better iteration.

It seemed so much more tedious to me than the previous games. I'm not entirely sure why.


really? That's interesting, because the Pokémon were all-new, and the gameplay was much speeded up. Just look up a (non-edited) battle video from Diamond/Pearl, and then one from Black/White. You'll be amazed how faster everything got.

The battles themselves may have been sped up, but by the time I got to the final four it felt like the game had been dragging on forever...

And then that wasn't the end! I finally just got a friend of mine to get me a vast supply of rare candy, bloated my Pokemon up to 100, and went through the four the second time without exploring much of the remaining routes. I couldn't take it any more.

Often, when you try too hard to act superior, the opposite occurs.

I love the new pokemon and the general "feel" of the region
I hate the new EXP system. It's terrible, your levels get waaay too high.
