I feel bad for anyone who can't enjoy gens 2 and 3 for the games that they are.

Spoken like a true Pokemon fan.

No seriously. For once, I agree.

I started off with Gen 0. I played Pokemon before it even existed. Beat that.

I started with White in gen 5 like a year ago.

No problems identifying Pokemon whatsoever. I can't name them just thinking about them, but I recognize most of them and what their names are with pictures, as well as what each one does, for the most part.

You're really underestimating people, or overestimating the learning curve. x.x

Im not here to praise Gen 1, I think Gen 2 was the best. I just feel bad for the people that would have to learn SOOO MUCH.

I actually feel Ruby and Sapphire were better than Red and Blue, so dont get things twisted.

Should've clarified in your OP, because it sounded like another Old Gen master race card.
But what you're basically saying is that it's gonna be tough for those who just entered Pokemon to kinda retread over the changes the series has undergone

Id feel intimidated if I was entering the series fresh and had to learn about 600+ pokemon. 150 was a lot to learn and discover but for someone to learn over 600+ pokemon, thats a lot of info tbh.

I haven't had much problem learning about all the Pokemon, and this is basically my first game other than Colloseum and XD. Whenever someone mentions one I don't know I just Google it.

I remember watching Pokemon on SkyOne before I'd got the games (I think, it was on before UK release, right?) and I knew all their names through the Pokerap off by heart. The agony of waiting for the games (both me and my bro have played since Gen 1, one version each). the batteries we went through, it was such a different game to anything we'd ever played.

I started in Generation IV with Platinum, then played Emerald (wasn't mine), Ruby, and Leafgreen. Caught all the Pokemon by the time Soulsilver came out (493). It wasn't as tedious as people made it out to be.

I can sorta agree with this.

Jumping into Pokemon now does feel waaaay more daunting than it did back then.

Though there is also the argument of coming in later means less getting used to the bigger changes, like Phys/Special split, abilities etc.
