It would be nice to see all the early gen pokemon that are too simplistic or that don't fit the more long-running aesthetic of the series as a whole receive redesigns. Not all of them need it, but, for example, the Hitmon pokemon.

Im not a genwunner but I have noticed most of my favorite pokemon are in that generation. Ninetales line Arcanine line and Eevee line to name a few.

They had to be. They couldn't put too much detail on that black and white screen without the sprites being a mess (and they were already bad enough as is).

People only ride Gen 1 so hard because it was everyones first Pokemon game. No new Pokemon game will match how everyone felt playing Pokemon in the 1990s, for better or for worse.

I'm more of a fan of Gen 2, though I liked the Gen 3 Pokemon the most.

They aren't dull looking, they are simple. And that's the way I like it.

Pokemon is a children's game. You're playing a children's game yourself so you're no better than them.

Though I started Gen I first myself and I can attain to what TC said. The fallacy that people who dislike the original because they're objectively inferior are younger than you is ridiculous. And you're not better than a child anyways since you're still just playing ingame Pokemon. Unless you play competitive which requires actual brain you're the exact same as a child.

Except nothing even comes close to Gen 1 in terms of innovation and great pokemon designs.


Oh yes, half of the designs were circles. Wonderful innovation.


Well, Gen 1 was innovative in the sense that it was what started the series in the first place.
