Hated - Pokemon Beauty Contests. Lost Day/Night System.

Gen 4:
Favorite - Physical/Special no longer tied to types, is move specific. Egg hatch to level 1.
Hated - WAY too many event only Pokemon. Too many HMs needed constantly.

The only mechanics I hate is Dream World. Dream is good, but in Pokemon its just plain bad.

Gen 2: Liked - Hold items (though they were rather limited), two new types, fixed type chart, breeding
Disliked - The legend chase (still hate it to this day), the phone (I DON'T CARE ABOUT YOUR GOD-DAMN RATATTA)

Gen 3: Liked - Natures and Abilities. (While I didn't know it at the time) the reworked EV system, Vs Seeker
Disliked - the Regional Dex (without the Pokemon being available post-game)

Gen 4: Liked - THE GOD-DAMN PHYSICAL/SPECIAL SPLIT. Good lord, was that needed.
Disliked - the sheer number of legends, many of which were event-only.

Gen 5: Liked - Hidden Abilities, and Starters could have them! Critical Captures (this was in B/W1 too)
Disliked - Event-only, male Hidden Ability Starters, Dream World, removal of Vs. Seeker, how many of the Pokemon still don't have access to their Hidden Ability.
