Gen 1: First one, and the anime cemented some of my opinions about the Pokemon.
Gen 2: The gen where I feel like my Pokemon fandom blossomed
Gen 3: The gen where I first spent hundreds of hours in
Gen 4: The revolutionary gen that sparked online interaction.
Gen 5: Hated the Pokemon at first, but they all grew on me. The region itself is glorious.
Yeah, I have a bias towards all of them. I think my biggest bias is towards Gen IV, because the WiFi connectivity made the games remarkable, and I've clocked over 500 hours between Pearl, Platinum, and SS in it. Gen V merely improved upon Gen IV, but VI has the potential to surpass it. My favorite game to date is Pearl, despite Platinum being technically superior to it. --- Official Bulbasaur of the Pokemon X boards.
I hate the 3rd gen. It caused me to quit Pokemon for a couple years. Love gen 2, ah the memories. --- Quoting the Topic Creator's original post is stupid and redundant. I'm here for intelligent arguments or flaming. It's your job to decipher which.
...Mostly because it built upon what was a potentially breaky generation (mostly from Psychic being the best, bug moves only consisting of Pin missle...on something like Jolteon) to something quite expansive.
• Sprite quality went up • Added more moves to types such as Bug and Dragon • Adde Steel and Dark types to balance the existing types • Added time/Day • Hold Items!
As an overall thing, Gen 2 added the most from a standard point of view, however the 3rd Gen added the standard of a Battle Frontier-esque a...though R/S is a bit sour for my tastes...but thats because of changes and problems they...
• Removed Time/Days to boast something trivial as TV gab. • Heavily expanded Berries, some more feasible than others. • Added Abilities!
Little qualms with R/S itself. • Pickup is pretty OP in R/S, though Emerald balanced it to an extent. • Aftergame content is non-existent. again, Emerald added some.
Maybe G/S was where the series grew the beard because they truely intended for the game to be a sequal to R/B, but then they found out Pokemon was a cashcow franchise long before they released G/S in japan, thus the large revamp of the battle system and links to the previous generation's locations and plot made it a bit progressive.
Though R/S started off on a whole new slate that almost made the audience felt like Continuity Reboot-levels....most older Pokemon wasn't even obtainable until they released Colosseum, XD, FR/LG and Emerald...it felt like the largest cashgrab for the franchise for the moment. :x --- RSN: Plucky9, Total: 2356 KoL: Plucky, currently a Avatar of Jarlsberg
