bw2 is far and away the best but gen 2 is still unmatched in the music department
I still remember the moment when the special "wild encounter starting" music played for the first time in Crystal version and I was like "Holy crap, what's happening!?", then the legendary beast theme started to play as Raikou emerged from the grass, and my jaw dropped, because it was the most epic music I had heard in a Pokemon game up to that point. Had a staring contest with Raikou for like 5 minutes while listening to that song.
Silver/Crystal was a lot of fun, but its remake was a lot better. I do appreciate its scope and day/night system a lot though. I still have the most nostalgia for Pokemon Sappire/Emerald though, so I am looking forward to their almost certainly improved remakes.
Hell no. What was so important that the game needed a second Professor Juniper who appears right outside a cave where you just finished talking to the first one? What was good character design about a Shadow Triad that only appears when they need to "take you to Lord N" who is 6-7 steps away and would be completely unavoidable regardless? What part of Cheren having a sook in the Cold Storage compelled you to continue the story?
I didn't mind the Gen5 Pokemon like the majority of other people did, but god damn did the story and characters make it the one of the worst videogames I have ever played through.

I thought the best game from the main series was Platinum. Great story, great and scary legendaries with a bunch of mythology, metric ****ton of stuff to do, and the Sinnoh region in general was imo a much more gratifying trek than almost any other region. Couple that with some performance boosts and it was a fantastic game.
