Instead of "saving the world from evil", you're just a kid training to be the best, while kicking Team Rocket's ass in the process. The NPCs seemed more realistic, too.

Not saying that I don't like the new plots, but it would be nice to return to the simplicity of R/B/Y.

Ehh... I'd rather have villains that are actual villains instead of just there.

When they started making pokemon deities they kind of left no choice but the "not your average baddies"

Which is cool it its own way, but it diverges from the original message of the series: "Gotta Catch 'em all".

Yes. It was incredibly simple and basic, but still technically a plot.

That's the problem with games nowadays... They don't know how or when to shut up.

Sometimes, less is more.

This. People who pine for the "old simpler plots" usually do so because they relate the games with those plots with their childhood, which is always fondly remembered.

Pokemon Red/Blue had a terrible plot and wooden characters whose only purpose was for convenient gameplay devices, hints, challenges, and tutorials.
