Of course, it didn't having anything to compete with at the time, so it was still good, and I'm not saying I dislike it, I still love it, but compared to gens two through five, it just can't do anything...
1. Everyone in Kanto was an ass for some reason. 2. It was WAY too generic. 3. The Pokemon designs weren't well thought out, but still gave the basic idea of Animals that could do cool stuff. 4. The region was boring. 5. The crime syndicate was overly generic. 6. The legendary Pokemon were decent, but unoriginal. 7. Several Pokemon were just more than one of it's previous form. 8. Gen I games kept to the original 151, but in the Anime, they had to pull Pokes from second gen to keep it going. 9. I know this doesn't apply to the concept, but those first gen games were waaaaay too glitchy. 10. After you beat the game, there was pretty much nothing to do.
There's tons more, but I gotta say, I did really like the remakes. FrLg > HgSs for sure, not that those games were bad, but really now.
I know that genwunners are going to disagree with me, but for me, I like 3rd, 5th, 2nd, 4th, 1st in that order.
