Yeah its been a while. I know there are double Pokemon fights now and multi attribute monsters but what is new? I stopped playing after Gold because it was essentially the same game as before +100 odd new Pokemon. Have they actually innovated the game?

Multi types aren't new. They've been in since RBY

Play Gen 5. Be blown away by how much of an improvement it is from Gen 1/2.

Two words: Re-usable TMs.

Three more words: HMs Aren't Mandatory*

*Except for Surf in BW2, and Fly is always nice to have. Thankfully those are also good battle moves anyway.

There is nothing new since Gold/Silver.

Not graphics, not Pokemon, not items, not strategies, nothing.

Why wouldn't you play Ruby And Sapphire?

I guess I was just getting tired of the series. I also lost the nostalgia, following all the new pokemon. They just aren't as cute or memorable as the 1st gen. Take gen 2 for instance. The 3 Pokemon you start up with are conveniently a fire type, grass type and a water type. They are basically poor imitations of their ancestors.
