why do people hate Pokemon Pearl?

I thought it was a great game. I can't think of any flaws other then that the berries kinda sucked.

Hate is a strong word,use dislike instead.

This thread is based so far on opinion, not facts -_-

Is there statistics to prove Diamond sold way more? Even so it would still be based on their opinion on why they both Diamond over Pearl.

When will you people learn the difference.

Go do a battle in R/S/E/FR/LG and then in D/P, and tell me you don't notice the difference.
you know the closer you get to something
the tougher it is to see it

Well, I don't know about other people's reasons, but I hated the map, disliked many of the new pokemon. and didn't like the gym leaders. I didn't hate it, but sinnoh had my least favorite games in the series.

I personally liked it, to be able to get a Snorlax THAT early in the game was incredible..of course it takes forever, unless you're lucky. =__=;

Poor type availability (Want Fire? Infernape or Rapidash or SUCK IT FIRE LIKERS) and too many new Pokemon only in the postgame are my big issues with it.

Platinum fixed both those so yeah, much more preferred. Better plot and battle speed are bonuses.

I would never replay DP again, battle speed and surf speed is appalling. Platinum is the only way to play 4th gen.

Was Pearl really that slow?

I remember beating Pearl back in the day, and I didn't really remember much from it.

Then again I've only beat Sapphire, Emerald before Pearl.

People liked Dialga more than Palkia. That's the only thing I can think of.
