Why does everyone hate Gen IV?

#31pyrotempestwingPosted 7/30/2013 12:17:09 PM
I don't hate Gen 4, so I don't count. Like always... -.-

Seriously though, it's pretty solid. Platinum is way better than Diamond/Pearl, but D/P can stand on their own quite well.

Gen 3 is the worst gen. It had shallow useless Pokemon, 85% of the map is water, and Team Magma/Aqua were plain boring. Team Galatic was much more interesting and had a greater storyline. You also don't face your rival at the League which is just stupid.


I'd say 30 to 40 percent of Hoenn is water.

When you see this, raise e to the generation and add 1. Social experiment.

I hate the living hell out of Gen IV, but not for a reason anyone here has. When I worked in Nintendo Game testing I tested D/P and had to play them 8 hours a day, 5 days a week for at least 2 months. Any game can start to grate on you for that long. Funny thing was I bought a copy of Pearl when it came out and got as far as the first badge before I just had to put it down. to this day I have never finished a gen IV game outside of testing them. Same reason I can't stand Phantom Hourglass....

Is that one of those Zelda games on the DS?
If so, I hated them because of the "Controls"

I for one love Gen IV. It's my second favorite right after Gen I. In fact, I think Torterra, Infernape, Empoleon, Staraptor and Luxray are the strongest team I've ever used. :)

I loved gen 4... I'm currently replaying Platinum and having a blast with Garchomp, Infernape, and Luxray.

-Slow and annoying battle mechanics. This is the main reason overall.


Right there. Am glad it is, since it's exactly why it's my least favorite. I don't hate Gen 4 at all, but it's the most annoying to me just because of that.

I don't hate Gen IV.
I hate Barry and the fact that Dawn's dress is too short.


Short? Lol what?


All she needed to do is take a step and you can see up her dress.
Way too short.


Agree with this. I really don't like how females in FE suddenly started dressing more risque with the installment of Awakening. Just a small side rant

I don't hate gen IV. My Munchlax and Gibile starter playthroughs were quite amusing.

Wasn't planning on playing that game so I did a quick search online as I couldn't believe you on they would do that.
Then I saw and one of them look like she had a night gown on as a "dress"
The hell is that? What kind of war are you fighting in a night gown? Do not want.
