Honestly, the last three generations have been "ahh..ehh..ahh" for me...don't get me wrong, they were fun too but they were "just another generation". Five almost brought me back to that feeling in Gen II when I entered Johto for the first time and saw those new Pokemon. Even though we don't get many new Pokemon in this gen, the transition to 3D has brought an entirely new facelift to Pokemon and I'm loving it. I love it.^_^ In many regards, this is like the Final Fantasy IX of Pokemon (ie with many many references to past games) but better....the three Kanto starters, Snorlax blocking your path, the electric gym being tricky to get through, etc. Who else is loving this gen?!?^_^
Freya Crescent is awesome...you cannot deny that, EVER.
