they are better now than they where where first introduced. sure breeding old pokemon to get new ones sounds great, till you find out the new ones evolve into the old ones, and the only way to get the new ones is to breed them.
but newer games are bringing in the prevos in the wild, which usually gives us the stronger old pokemon earlier. great example are magby and elekid in b2/w2 it lets us use these lines earlier and makes us wait for the stronger forms. this is how prevos need to be handled
cant decide which movie is the worst movie; dragon ball z evolution, m.nights last air bender, or twilight????? hmmm
