I accept all of them because each generation has pokemon that I love and hate. Granted though, my least favorite so far has to be the fifth gen.
I think this is partially due to the usual power creep, but also due to the fact that gamefreak wants to make all pokemon at least somewhat useful. Common mons like patrat/watchog in 5th gen are way more useful then ones like sentret were in second gen because patrat gets better overall type coverage, superfang, and hypnosis.Shanicus said:I recognize all of them - anyway, the 5th generation isn't that bad. While we do have to put up with an Icecream cone and a bag of rubbish (Though the icecream is surprisingly powerful...) It did give us such greats as Chandelure, Serperior and Braviary.
Though whoever balanced the Legendaries needs to go back and do it again - Reshiram and Zekrom are some of the most over-powered things in the entire game. Seriously, they're worse then 4th generation Garchomp.
Seel and Beedrill, anyone? Some of the laziest designs in pokemon.Bakuryukun said:I think nostalgia blinds people to the fact that even some of the original 151 were pretty stupid. That being said, every gen has had a good dose of good pokemon as well, and I still have fun with even the latest entries of the series.
So Ducklett is unoriginal, but the ones in the original 151 are not? Have you looked at them? Pidgey is just a bird, Seel is just a seal with a small horn, Mr. Mime (god I hate him) is just a pedophile, Growlithe is just an orange dog...I could go on and on. If anything, the designs have been getting more original as it goes. Sure, you have your duds, but I don't understand how people can complain about them running out of ideas and are just copying animals while also complaining about some of the weirder ones (like the ice cream one or the garbage bag).Caramel Frappe said:I stopped with the first generation really. It's realistic that way (yeah, it's a fictional world and a cartoon but please hear me out) because there's no way that suddenly 250 more pokemon can be suddenly discovered. In the world of Pokemon, they would of came across the breeds altogether. It would be like if I had a show and everyone being in a civilized society soon discovered what 'birds' were all of a sudden in some other country. It doesn't make sense.. in fact what I said doesn't make as much sense as it should.
Point is, the first generation is the golden era, the classic. After that it was all because the demand for Pokemon was high, and they couldn't keep people amused with the 150 Pokemon they already got to know by heart. Yet, doing this often with 150 Pokemon breeds each time will put a huge strain on them. I mean, they already ran out of ideas due to making this a Pokemon:
.. Looks like, a duck that's blue. Not saying the games aren't enjoyable, but I fear Pokemon cannot last forever and might end soon. Maybe.
