The incredible size and diversity of the Sinnoh region.


Half that region was dominated by a mountain range. Hoenn was more varied.

However, Gen 4 gave us:
1. The Physical/Special Split
2. The Pokeathlon
3. Seals
4. The Physical/Special Split


Seals were such a ****ing waste of ****ing time. The fact that you had to detach each seal individually before putting a Pokemon in a box - instead of just automatically doing it - made it the most useless thing to ever come out of a Pokemon game, behind the Old Rod.

Seals are a really cool idea, but having to detach them is a pain. I would use them all the time if I didn't have to do that.

and for something that gen v still doesn't have

Rematches with gym leaders that a have atleast 5 pokemon on their team (5 in platinum and 6 in HGSS) that are actually worth EXP

more things i could add but they're my top 5

The TC's post makes me think they mean the Pokemon themselves rather than game mechanics. In which case, no. No it did not.

I must agree with Benzychenz. I'm not saying gen 4 Pokemon were bad, but I have noticed that it has the least Pokemon that actually catch my interest.

I honestly prefer the way they do it now. Through PWT, the gym leaders live out for their titles as they're ACTUALLY challenging. Unlike the laughable breeze-throughable and forgettable post-game fillers. You win BP for TMs and items you cant otherwise buy with money too

If we're talking about just the Pokémon themselves, then I actually really liked the selection. It has great starters, and while a lot of the Pokémon don't really stand out, I really like all of the evolutions to older Pokémon. Togekiss and the like are now far more viable than ever before.

How come nobody ever mentions that Gen 4 brought us wifi battling and trading? They're not perfect by any stretch of the imagination but it beats the dark ages of having to use link cables and having to *shudder* actually meet each other.

This man speaks the truth. Even moreso than the Physical/Special split, I think the introduction of wifi battling and trading is gen 4's most important new feature.
