Why do people say Pokemon died after the first/second generation?

Gen 3 took many steps back from gen 2 such as no backwards compatibility and the loss of the day/night system. A lot of players quit after gen 2. Not to say later generations don't have their merits, but I remember being disappointed in gen 3. I wouldn't say pokemon died, but there's a good reason the first two generations are favorites for some.

There WAS a day/night system (in R/S/E at least), it just wasn't a visible one, it was just a clock.

I think that is only true for the anime.

It's funny because the OS was bad, and Hoenn was where it started getting better.

...up until Unova/Best Wishes, where it nosedived quality-wise again.

Agreed. I liked some of the characters and designs(Georgia in particular), but it was a massive step down.

I think it was also that Gen. 3 had a lot of Pokemon you couldn't get unless you had some Gamecube game(s).

Actually, pokemon already died in the first generation. There's even a pokemon graveyard you have to visit
