Are Gen 4 and Gen 2 the best two gens?

I say this because those were definitely the gens I played the most.

Gen 4 was just great in my opinion. The first game with a great post-game with the national dex stuff. I dunno what it was about this game but I put like 200 hours into it and just really loved it. It really felt bigger than the other gens. This is the most memorable gen to me.

Gen 2 to me was my second most hours in a Pokemon game, probably because of the awesome 16 badges and large pokedex which was very cool (And I honestly wish more gens would do something like this.) Re-exploring Kanto was great, the Johto thing was cool at the time, and this to me seemed to be the game with the most life to it.

I really like when Pokemon games make you feel like you're living in the world, and Johto was the best for me. Only game where night actually looked like night, and finding different Pokemon at night was so cool. I loved how they implemented days of the week - bug catching contests on certain days, and other things once a day or once a week and things like that. My ideal Pokemon game would have Animal Crossing as a framework, honestly. I always felt Animal Crossing was really cool but IMO it feels like they left out the game and just put in the world.

I would love a Pokemon game that has Animal Crossing as a framework, where you have a living town, with people, and things to do on certain days, and Christmas, and holidays and stuff....towns and villages that feel alive, and you could battle Pokemon and catch them...to me Pokemon is such a time-sink that it's best when it feels really immersive - giving you a whole world to live in and explore - and Gen 2 was the one that most captured that to me.

You picked the two gens, which in my opinion, are the worst.

6 > 3 > 5 >>> 1 >>> 4 > 2

Any reasons for this especially in regards to the things I said?

Glad I'm not the only one that likes Gen 4.

Oh and I forgot to mention the awesome bottom screen on Diamond and Pearl...you had step counters and type checkers (WHY IS THIS GONE?!) and tons of useful and cool things. Now it was replaced with a bottom screen I literally never use, and all those features are gone. I would kill for that type checker back...yeah I could search online but it was so convenient having it in the game.

Gen 2 was the worst and Gen 5 is the best, so no.

What makes Gen 2 the worst? Everybody just keeps saying things with no reasons. For me Gen 2 was the best for immersion with being the only game to commit to the day/night and day of the week system, which IMO was a step in the very right direction for Pokemon, and they then stepped away from it. It also had 16 badges, and a lot of Pokemon that were still manageable to catch most of them. It was a long game, and good.
