I liked gen 5's designs overall. Trubish, Garboder, Mandibuzz, Cubchoo, were all kind of bad IMO, but every gen is bound to have a few lame looking Pokemon. I warmed up to a lot of the gen 5 Pokemon after a while.
Reusable TM's. A gift straight from Arceus
First gen since gen 2 that had legendaries I actually liked. Even the goofy looking kami trio were ok once they transformed
Pros: 1.BW were amazing. Definitely my favorite games of the franchise. 2.Many great characters. Especially N and Caitlin. 3.Reusable TMs. THANK GOODNESS. 4.GTS negotiations. THANK
GOODNESS. 5.The storylike was really good. 6.Easy infrared trading. Cons: 1.The pokemon designs. Dear arceus, this is the biggest flaw of the generation. so many horrible pokemon. Especially Zoroark. 2.Lack of features from gen 4. 3.Hilda
Not changing this sig until Sigilyph becomes UU or OU. Official Shadow Zangoose of the X board!
Con's 1. lets face it, gen 5 brought some of the worst designs ever in Pokemon (however that does not mean I hate that Pokemon, because of design). .
I'm afraid that people will think I hate Gen 5s Pokemon's because of this sentence. I will clarify this sentence now.
Gen 5 also brought many good designs. Some of my favorites are: Haxorus,Golurk,Hydreigon and Krookodile (and that's only some). Again if a Pokemon is ugly etc. in my eyes, that does not mean i hate that Pokemon. In my case, I can love a "badly"designed Pokemon, if I have an good time with them. I wasn't a big fan of Accelgor. However in a rental match in the world tournament, I had to use him....and boy he wrecked the opposing teams by (special) force :). After that i completely loved that Pokemon :).
