Things you liked/hated about Generation 5 (B/W/B2/W2)

#11JoJoX200Posted 8/20/2013 9:40:48 AM
What I liked:

- The pokemon. Gen 5, along with Gen 3 holds the record of having lots of pokemon I really like. Gen 1 is close behind tough.

- the updates to the battle system, including animated sprites, camera perspectives and rotation battles(which are my favorite mode).

- Actually interesting story line in BW1. BW2 was closer to the standard, but included likeable(to me) characters in Colress and rival Hugh.

- PWT as a really fun postgame activity. Mostly due to the fact that it's the only place to regularly have rotation battles(random wifi is basically dead in that mode).

- Join Avenue as a place to EV your pokemon and to make DW a it more enjoyable(I like finding DW friends in my join avenue)

What I disliked:

- The starters being outclassed by other obtainable pokemon pretty easily. I never noticed that issue as much as in Gen 5. I actually like their designs tough.

- Dreamworld. Way to make the game overly exhausting by making berries and certain abilities unavailable during normal play. Except for two minigames, DW isn't even fun.

- Tutorials being unskippable. I know how to catch pokemon, thank you very much.

That's it actually

Pros:
-Added stuff to the PC in B2W2(why didn't they do that in 1? Seriously 2 is making 1 look like a waste of money)
-Improved battle speed
-Join Avenue
-Majority of the pokemon added
-Music
-Added stuff to make shiny breeding easier in B2W2
-Pokestar
-Medal Rally(tedious but fun for people who want a hardcore challenge)

Cons:
-Too many Japan-exclusive events that had nothing to do with their local Pokemon-Centers. And I don't think were getting the shiny Genesect either
-Godawful anime
-No wifi Entralink or Multi Subway

Thats all I can think for the cons. Most of them is just GF being selfish to the other countries lol

What I liked:
+ Over 150 new Pokemon, almost none of which I really dislike.
+ The Gyms looked neat and were fun to navigate.
+ Team Plasma's battle theme.
+ Everything about Skyarrow Bridge.
+ Reusable TMs.
+ The ability to move items directly from one party Pokemon to another.

What I disliked:
- More ****ing dragons.
- More ****ing plot-important dragons.
- Day Care is off-limits until beating the game in B2W2.
- Training to higher levels is annoying and more tedious than necessary.
- The region being so linear in BW (B2W2 was better, though).
- CAN'T TRANSFER ITEMS FROM GEN IV EVEN THOUGH I SPENT THE LAST YEAR GROWING USEFUL BERRIES FGYDFRHXSDHADG
- Dream World locks you out from finding any more Pokemon or items after some arbitrary number of visits on the same day.
- The "lost item" sidequest in B2W2. More specifically, that it won't let me meet Yancy just because I'm a girl.
- Croagunk is in the regional Pokedex in B2W2 even though I can't actually catch one before beating the game -__-

I loved gen 5 so this is going to be a lot more likes than dislikes:

Like:
No old pokemon until post game (was so burned out on oddish)
Increased number of bug, ghost, and dark type pokemon
Volcarona
Krookodile
Team plasma music was great
High level elite 4 post game
Basically no required HM use
New unique type combinations
N was a great villain
Gym leaders that actually were relevant to the plot of the game
Actually having a plot
Team Plasma not just being a bunch of evil people because someone has to be evil
Good type variety
Only one wandering legendary pokemon per game
Wandering pokemon moves in a somewhat predictable pattern and is easy to tell if in the area
Impossible to get lost while playing
Pokémon centre and mart being in the same building
Battle subway

Dislike:
Only one save file
Pokemon musicals
No autorun
Only being able to trade after beating the first gym
Cheren
Not being able to fish until post game
