Even playing with nuzlockes and normal playthroughs, I always quit when I'm at slate port city. I want to beat the elite 4, but it just gets so boring. I guess it's hard for me to go back to those games when the improved gen 4 and 5 are there.

Not sure if anyone else experienced this, but when I went back and played Gen 1-3 again, Gen 3 took me much longer than the previous two to finish. And not in a good way. Everything seemed slower and more drawn out.
It was a chore for me to finish. And unlike Gen 4 (also a chore), it doesn't have the benefit of the Physical/Special split or improved graphics.
