The problem with people voting on R/B/Y are doing so in the context of the other games. Of course the later games are going to be better from a balance and and feature perspective. That's why Generational comparisons are usually terrible. The latest in a series has the most up-to-date features and base that was built up from the beginning.
Was the 150 pokemon in R/B/Y too few? There weren't any complaints of there being too few back then, because no one had seen so many options and combinations available for gameplay. When you compare it to the 600+ that are available now, of course 150 seems small and limiting. And the mechanics of the stat system, they seem archaic and limited by today's standards, but they weren't problems back then, because those other features didn't exist back then.
Directly comparing a game from 1998 to one in 2012 and asking which is better is asinine. They each need to be examined of their own merits.
That's like saying NES Metriod is the best because it started the Metroid series, when the general consensus is that Super Metroid and Metroid Prime are the best Metroid games.
Off topic but y'know, I think Nintendo isn't very good at continuity timelines. I heard that according to current events in it's universe, Fusion is basically the latest chapter in Samus's story thus far?
