why are people so dead set on claiming one gen to be better than the rest?

It's funny, because when you step outside of the Pokémon box and look at them all, it's just people bickering about a bunch of games which are all essentially the same thing, over the pettiest things.

"Oh, this one has more water routes than the others, FML!"

"Guys, guys - in this one you don't have to hold down B to run! The removal of that was a HUGE step backwards in Gen 5."

"origianl 151 r da best screw dat nu crap lol"

"Man, you can't even catch good Fire types before the elite 4 if you didn't choose that starter, what a joke!"

"Gen 2 is complete garbage, among the likes of Bubsy 3D*, Cheetahmen and Superman 64 that did nothing good for the series, what were they smoking?"

"But...but the Physical/Special split! It was so revolutionary, not like it was inevitable at some point and can be used to overlook everything else Gen 4 was lazy ab-..." [ahem] great, I'm a hypocrite now.
