Can we all agree that Lumiose is the worst city in the series?

I'm tired of everyone I know, of everyone I see, on the streets and on TV.

I hated it, but I'm going to say it was the best just to go against the majority.

I didn't think that Lumiose was actually overly bad, although getting around was sort of annoying (unless I was missing a map or something, I had issues finding places).

Castelia was absolutely godawful. Easily the worst.

It's a mess, an absolute, total mess.

That said, it could have been COMPLETELY alleviated by simply having a dynamic map (as in, one which includes a little blip which shows where you are at all times and which you would show place names) on the bottom screen. It could have even been some weird gimmick that only Luminose City could have had, but it desperately needs a map.

The taxis shouldn't need to exist to make the city functional.

No.

It's the second worst after Castelia. Third worst is Goldenrod for making almost the remaining entirety of two regions useless.

This is the argument I always bring up when people tell me it's okay and give me navigation advice. If the city were well-designed, these alternate transit methods wouldn't need to exist.

It really needs a minimap.

I still hate Castelia more. In both B/W 1 and 2.
The stupid gym makes it worse, at least Bonnie is adorable and hands out ribbons.

I don't think it's the worst, but it's not particularly good.

To be fair, there ARE signs that tell you what's in every avenue.

You just have to get close enough to read them without accidentally entering/exiting the avenue, and notice that they're actually readable signs.

Or just notice them at all because of how tiny they are.
