Gen 5 doesn't suck, BW1 sucks.

BW2 is great.

It's kind of like the Diamond and Pearl to Platinum situation.
Man, I hope XY isn't anemic with no content at all and a step backwards like DP and BW1 were compared to the previous "third versions".

Emerald >>>>>>>>>>>>>> DP
Platinum >>>>>>>>>>>>>> BW1
BW2 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> XY? Let's hope not, but I'm not holding my breath.

Its a case of hoping they don't treat the 1st in the main series on the 3DS as a test run and barely put any effort in to it only to release the "Z" type version which has everything

While the story follows the same formula over and over again, the series has gotten much better at how it tells this story throughout the years. Compare R/B to B/W. R/B has a very generic jerk rival who's entire characterization is based on the fact that he's your rival and thinks he's better than you. He gets absolutely no character development. He's the same jerk from beginning to end. Meanwhile, Cheren and Bianca are both your rivals and are very different from each other. Cheren's a know-it-all who goes on the adventure to get stronger since, initially, that's what he believes he should do. Bianca, on the other hand, is a rather bubbly character who goes on the adventure not to, "become the very best like no one ever was" or whatever, but to figure out what she wants to do in life. Both go through some kind of character development. Cheren learns that there is more to pokémon than just getting stronger while Bianca basically matures throughout the game until she becomes a rather respectable character. Sure, she's still a bit out there by the end of the game, but she definitely becomes a better person by the end.

So now that Gen VI was announced, is it time for everyone to irrationally hate Gen V?

I didn't know generation 5 had a story let alone a good one.

People who don't actually play the games don't know much about them in general.

ITT topics are like hypothetical topics.

I don't think it sucked, but I disliked Gen V because I liked barely any of the new pokemon. Wargle and Haxorus are cool, Zebstrika is alright, but other than that I was pretty disappointed.

Liking the starters has at least given me hope for Gen VI.
We're here! We play Pokemon! Get used to it!
