I would genuinely like to know some of the gripes you guys have in any aspect of the franchise. It could be anime, game, or other...

The anime. It sucks and I will give a cookie to anyone who can give a valid counter-argument.

Anime: It is just inferior in every way to the original series. The plot is lame, nothing of interest particularly happens...just feels like not a lot of effort goes into the show anymore.

Games: Too easy; make a hard mode available from the start. Needs better interface for items. Too much of a hassle trading Pokemon between generations. GTS trading is badly flawed.

Anime is just garbage.

It was decent at first, then Saffron city and Sabrina ... Everything went downhill after.

So other than the fan base you're completely ok with everything else?

Not having multiple saves bugs me. I would love it if there were 3 profiles.

While true, the first 3 seasons or so are still a huge guilty pleasure for me.

1) the battle system. Ever since Smash bros. I've wanted them to retool the battle system to be closer to that, and have skill finally take a part in battle instead of just raw stats and lucky breaks.

2) The fans. We are the whiniest bunch of crybabies ever.
