You mean those days when close to everything about the game was unbalanced? Don't get me wrong, I love first gen, I used to play in semi-competitively, but god the metagame was filled to the brim with weird balance choices and luck-based factors.
However, it's astounding that Gen V still does some really foolish things despite the fact that this game seems to care about the metagame the most.
