Why don't people like the 2nd Gen?

It personally is my favorite gen

Gen 1 and Gen 2 video games had my favorite pokemon and the anime of Kanto and Johto were personal favorites of mine as well

It introduced shiny pokemon
It was the next step in an awesome franchise and a step in the right direction at that
It gave us awesome evolutions like Umbreon Espeon Scizor
it gave us interesting pre evolutions like Elekid Magby Smoochum and Pichu
It allowed you to go to two different regions
16 badges
you get to fight Red who was a very interesting battle

You get my point. Now I do not understand why there are so many people against it

Well, people tend to not like it because of the low level curve, relatively stripped down kanto, and johto pokemon being sparsely distributed, some even having to wait till postgame to get.

But I still love it.

And if you like it, doesn't matter what others think, right?

Kanto was the worst thing ever, Johto was the second worst thing ever, you couldn't fight level 100 Pokemon, the gyms and Elite 4 weren't all level 100, and they were the worst games ever made.

2nd gen is my fav gen to

Going back to Kanto made the Johto portion less fleshed out. The game was just very empty. There wasn't many new Pokemon, and there were a handful of new ones that you couldn't even get till you were in Kanto. It was super easy because of the gym leaders being under leveled, and the plot was just an extension of the first generation games plot.

By almost all accounts it was a step in the wrong direction and GameFreak realized that afterwords.

I wish Blastoise was my dad. He wouldn't beat my mom like what her boyfriend, Johnny does. If Blastoise was my dad things would be different around here.

Because it's old and outdated. And so are gens 1-4, soon to be gen 5 as well.

Every generation after it has Shiny Pokemon too
Generation 3, 4, and 5 were a step forwards in the Franchise too
We got Honchkrow, Weavile, Magnezone, Togekiss, Yanmega, Leafeon, and Glaceon in Gen IV
Baby Pokemon are Terrible, but still, more were introduced in Gen 3 and 4
2 Watered Down Regions
Most people prefer Quality over Quantity
Steven and Cynthia

Although HGSS and RSE are my two Favorite Pokemon games.

I was asking why people dont like the 2nd gen

2nd gen was the first to do everything you just listed

first shiny pokemon

first real challenging trainer

first baby pokemon

first to have two regions

and the first step in continuing the pokemon games

all of this happened in 2nd gen and allowed for it to recur in the games to follow

Well, I never did like most of the Pokemon and their names were a bit ridiculous... Im looking at you Feraligatr >.>. Johto wasnt really my favorite region either.
