I really don't see the argument for putting 1 and 2 anywhere except last or second last, unless the argument is nostalgia, in which case its a terrible argument.
Personally: FRLG > RBG HGSS > GSC IMO, Yellow is still substantially different enough to be grouped outside RBG for this purpose.
So, the only way I can imagine saying that 3 or 4 are worse than 1 or 2 is that RSE & DPPt were the worst things in existence until the remakes came out, but even then they weren't enough to make 3 and 4 better than 1 or 2. Or for Gen I, that Yellow was somehow amazing enough to put it above everything else its below. In which case, why are you still here if you've hated Pokemon for at least 2 generations in a row? I mean, if you actually do like the originals so much over the remakes, fine, go ahead.
Brawl was released a year ago and it does everyone Melee does but better. - LunaOrngeCrush5
