It means they only like red and blue, right? So how come they don't like fire red and leaf green, which are essentially the same games but with a graphics upgrade with a few gameplay changes? --- The bottom line is wrong The top line is right

My friend claims that Abilities ruined that game. He doesn't actually hate any generation except 3, but he includes FR/LG in that generation.
I think he's just overreacting because Earthquake didn't work on Koga's Koffing. He was enjoying the game just fine until that happened. --- Socran's Razor: "Never attribute to massive stupidity by someone else, what could be explained by a tiny bit of stupidity on your own part."
There is legitimate reason to dislike abilities. They sort of shake up the game to someone new to the newer games. --- Not changing this sig until we get a new main series Tales game released on a Nintendo console in the US
Natures, Abilities, the inferior EV system, the Special split, the graphics style is less charming, etc,.
Basically it is inferior in every way, I don't even see how the two are comparable to be honest.
Natures: As long as you don't use Pokémon with bad natures for them, it shouldn't affect much. Your Wartortle might just take special hits better at the expense of his already-low speed.
Abilities: Is this just "I can't blaze through Koga with my free Dig TM"? If so, you can use a Psychic type. Or is it "It's hard to PP stall Mewtwo"? They aren't bad; they just make the game a little more varied.
EVs: You just seem to be upset that they added more decisions you need to consider. Having to pick how to allocate them (and if you're playing in-game, you don't even need to, just like RBY; you'll just get an overall OK-good Pokémon instead of a great one, which isn't necessary for in-game) adds a lot of strategy, and if you're trying to make good Pokémon, it's better to have to specialize than just do the Mew glitch until you have perfect EVs.
Special split: Wait... you think the Special split was a bad thing? It may have weakened some Pokémon that were mixed powerhouses offensively or defensively, but a bad thing? I can't even see where you could be coming from on this...
Graphics style: OK, you didn't like it. Graphics are subjective, so I can't and won't argue on this.
To everyone else, I know exactly who and what he is. I'm just seeing how he responds to a full response to his complaints. --- For those of you starting topics about the PS4, there's a PS4 board: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/691087-playstation-4
