That didn't really like the plot of gen 5? I mean, it was definitely better complexity-wise than any of the other gens. But it was just felt kind of awkward to me, because it took itself more seriously while it still wasn't even that good.

Nope. Story never matters in Pokemon. The true objective in Pokemon is to catch every Pokemon. The story only serves as a pointless roadblock.
I am the only true Pokemon fan. If you can't accept this, take your jealousy away from my presence.

I didn't care for the plot. I just wanted my monsters to faint other monsters.

it was the first mainline pokemon game to have a plot and dialogue worth caring about, so i've gotta give it props for that.

best course of action is just assume Team X is trying to capture Pokemon Y and accomplish goal Z

I think that BW1 had a good story, but it would have been done if Game Freak didn't have to be so "safe" and show actual evidence that not every Pokemon is well cared for and happy, and as a result the "POKEMON ARE OUR FRIENDS AND I LIKE THEM AND YAAAAY" was kinda thick.

BW2's story was something of a step back, and on its own it was weak, but it seeing the characters from 1 fleshed out further helped it.
