I liked Gen V because they're really starting to understand what we think makes a Pokemon good.
Sometimes, too good, but they're really starting to understand the competitive aspects of the game and trying to make a lot more Pokemon competitively viable. Remember we got a huge "power creep" in this gen, but that's because Gen IV's metagame was so well fleshed out after having been around for a while. --- 3DS FC: 2578-3118-6645 PSN: PowahBoxers Currently hooked on Ragnarok Odyssey.
Remember when Hoenn was the worst thing to ever happen to Pokemon? Everyone wants remakes now.
Remember when everyone complained about the Sinnoh gen? Surfing speed too slow, Pokemon aren't interesting, etc. It will be as revered as Gen III is now and they will want remakes of it, too.
Same thing with Gen V. The same thing will happen when Pokemon X/Y come out.
It's like the Zelda Cycle, but a little different. The Zelda Cycle dictates that you MUST hate the new Zelda that comes out, then the previous one wasn't so bad, the one before it is a masterpiece, then the one before THAT is overrated. Finally, every game before that is a timeless classic.
The Pokecycle goes like this: New gen get praised. Previous gen gets hated. Gen before that gets loved. Gen before that is the best.
Not everybody is effected by either Cycle though. --- https://i.chzbgr.com/completestore/12/8/11/wXLYp87DiE2C6xnGXLS7BA2.jpg
I can't say I hate it but I certainly didn't like it anywhere near as much as I thought I would. The story to me is just dull, the forced online for berry growing ticks me off, and I find the lack of good training areas annoying. Shame, as I like pretty much everything else. --- Pi is awesome, Pi is great, Pi does not end, pie for everyone! Official Drill Arm of the Kid Icarus Uprising Board
"Gen V did not deliver Hoenn remakes, therefore it is an abomination!" - Hoenn Babies everywhere
Most people who liked Gen 3 also enjoyed Gen 5. Infact a lot of people who list Gen 3 s their favorite usually list Gen 5 as their second favorite. The only abomination in the entire series is Gen 2. Nice try though. --- --- PSN: Unretributed
