Is HGSS Gen 2 or Gen 4?

Isn't it more about the pokemon?


Mechanics are bigger. Feraligatr is able to flourish as a Physical Sweeper. The GTS is available in the course of the maingame.

What about the horrible pokemon distribution and levelling?


In that case I guess they belong to Gen III.

RS had 200 of 386 Pokemon, missing every previous legendary and a whole lot of fan favorites. Colosseum was mostly Gen II Pokemon. At least, FRLG gave us a surprise with the new Sevii Islands. Emerald was predictable with the GSC Pokemon missing from FRLG and Ditto. XD probably had the best distribution of Pokemon that generation.

HGSS had a better distribution than most Gen III. It even improved on the distribution of Gen II, something that Gen III had actually done.

I really want to believe this is is a serious topic, but from TC's posts it indeed seems as a vehicle to bash HG/SS.

By the way, they fall in Gen IV's territory. I don't know how anyone could really think they are Gen 2 when they have the same game mechanics as D/P/Pt.

Alright, I admit I laid the bashing on a bit too thick, but I'm serious about knowing which Gen it belongs to.

Like a previous poster said, if HGSS belongs to Gen 4, it would seem a lot of the 2 > 4 topics and posts wouldn't make sense, though I never played GS.

Also, if it was well and truly a Gen 4 game, why didn't GF fix the levelling, and possibly rebalance the pokemon distribution?

Edit: spelling and grammar.

That doesn't make sense
