Is it really wrong for somebody to prefer RBY/FRLG over GSC/HGSS?

It's not wrong, just as long as you acknowledge that it is nostalgia.

I still don't see the appeal of Gen 2 TR. they were probably the worst.

They're about as hardcore as the anime Team Rocket, going all tsundere for their long lost love Giovanni, but it was amusing to see them in shambles without their Dear Leader.

Still not quite as lame as Flare's "the world's not perfect, so anyone who can't afford a million dollar cosplay isn't fit to live" chicanery. In a world smelling like a semi-industrialized Arcadia. Things get awkward when you raise the stakes with Pokémon villains.

Not really. They started out interesting but then things fell apart quickly, culminating as they did one of the most asinine things in any Pokemon medium: they literally began broadcasting their location and criminal intent, announcing the name of their leader (who was never really publicly identified as being their leader, implicating him), and begging him to go to the area where the authorities were no doubt on their way.

Things don't get awkward when you raise the stakes.

Giovanni wanted money and some form of power, apparently.
Archie and Maxie were ecoterrorists who wanted to reshape the earth.
Cyrus was basically out for power in the most extreme way possible.
Ghetsis was out for power in a more realistic fashion, but more extreme than Giovanni's plans.

Lysandre's plan could have made sense and he did make some good points about human population getting too large to sustain itself, etc. The issue is that they put too much work into making Kalos, like all regions, a happy and verdant land where people are all kind and happy and friendly. They expected us to buy more into his point because something bad happened thousands of years ago. If they were willing to take more risks and make things less ideal, and changed some of the dialogue so his plan to save to world from selfish people by killing everyone and then repopulating it with thieves and thugs and selfish people was more "kill everyone except for the scientists, scholars, doctors, etc. we've recruited/kidnapped" then the story would have made a lot more sense.

Back then, I figured Team Rocket had totally lost their minds. I'm not very familiar with like half the series; I should read up on that stuff.

Also, you have a habit of making quality posts.

why is it that your instantly called a genwunner if you like gen 1 better then another gen? why is everybody that likes kanto is called a casual? i played every main pokemon game and this is still my opinion


A genwunner isn't someone who thinks that Gen I is a good game. A genwunner is someone who thinks that everything but Gen I sucks.
Generation (pi)(i).
When you see this, raise e to the generation and add 1. Social experiment.

It was more of a desperation thing, but still incredibly stupid.

It's what I do.

You know, now that you mention it... this could've been done by making Kalos a little more like Orre.
