    I like how they know it will "Take Japan By Storm This June" since those idiots will buy anything with a pokemon logo on it.
    Remove Japan and pokemon and you can apply the same formula to anything else with success.
    But I guess liking things you don't like makes one an idiot right?

    every iteration of the pokemon series has new mechanics, areas, and monsters. they're definitely not the same thing every time.

    Some really didn't
    Execute or whatever it was written and its evolution didn't look that exciting to me.
    Jigglypuff and cleafairy didn't neither, and many others didn't aswell.

    It goes likes this IMO:
    1st gen was cool, but looked rather boring after the next 1 or 2 gens came out. Nice starters but only charmander was really cool, and the last ones were nice aswell, but not nearly cool enough.
    2nd gen was one of the best for me, second only (and thats actually a maybe) to 3rd gen. Really cool starters like cyndaquill and totodyle with awesome evolutions and awesome legendaries. Steelix deserves a note, as its one awesome evolution.
    3rd gen again was awesome, brought really cool pokemons, cool starters, cool legendaries (rayquaza <3) and overall the game was really nice. I really loved emerald, almost as good as s/g/c.
    4th gen kinda blew it on the starters and somewhat most of the others, legendaries are nice at best, but they kinda blew it, again, imo.
    5th gen has nice starters that don't look too bad, really awesome legendaries and dragon types, although some pokemons are rather bland...

    Goes like that for me. I wish I didn't use the running shoes on soulsilver. Everything was just much faster, which isn't good because it made me do everything faster instead of looking for everything.

    YEAH GENERATION 1 IS THE BEST WE HAD QUALITY POKEMON LIKE EKANS (IT'S SNAKE BACKWARDS LOL) AND MUK (A LIVING PILE OF SHIT)!
    Notice the word overall.

    As in, "the pokemon in the first two generations on average looked better than the ones in the later generations, with more good pokemon and less bad pokemon".

    They looked much better than these mutant fucks:









    See, the first and third are good.
    The second? Okay.
    The fourth is way too detailed and chaotic, but it's not too bad if that's the point.
    The fifth is a bag of shit. It is literally a bag of shit.

    See, even with the exceedingly simple ones like Ekans and Muk, they don't have excessive amounts of detail, and also actually look good. Muk was a pile of slime, but it was a cool looking pile of slime.
    That fifth one out of the pictures? The bag of shit? It looks like a bag of shit. It has the design of a bag of shit.

    Wait, what? Why not just Pokemon Grey version? What happened to making a third main series?

    I hate Gen V again. They're breaking all the rules.

    Haven't played a Pokemon game seriously ever since I got the complete Pokedex in Pokemon Gold. 251 of those bastards. And then Nintendo practically doubled that number over the years...

    Because the DS and 3ds lines of games are entirely different. Sure, a 3ds can play ds games, but continuing to make DS games is really just hindering the growth of the 3ds. You aren't taking advantage of the high processing/graphic powers of the non eight year old system. You could probably have a 3ds pokemon game will full 3d gameplay. After all there is a tech demo where you can view the 160ish newest pokemon in 3d on your 3ds. However, if you develop the game for the ds we don't get those models because the ds can't handle them.

    Although I only played it in Japanese, BW had a decent storyline compared to the... well, no storyline of the other games

    It also felt simply epic at certain points in the game (like the first time you cross the bigass bridge) which is more than one can say for the originals

    Milking out the same dead horse for years to come.

    Only the Pokemon are progressively uglier and look allot more like Digimon.

    No, that'd be megaman

    At least Pokemon brings something new to the table every generation or so

    Seriously? The only new things that were brought to the table (at least up until the DS era) were so worthless it's not even funny. Berry mixing? Versus seeker? The endless stream of far too many pokemon? At least with Megaman you have a good variety of games like RPG with Battle Network/Shooting Star, Platformers for the classics, and Third-Person Adventure with Legends, although that's fallen by the wayside recently.

    Actually, Pokemon has had different "genres" in its series. Pokemon Colosseum, Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness, all those Pokemon Ranger games, the Pokemon ranch game for the Wii, that one Pokemon game where you're all toys or whatever on the Wii, etc.

    Pokemon was a child friendly version of Shin Megami Tensei in my opinion. Except that Pokemon didn't have a faction system, it didn't have a better storyline, and you couldn't capture or summon religious deities from your computer.

    If you're talking about GenIII, then I'd disagree due to the fact that it effectively modernized Pokemon to 21st Century standards, with everything from abilities and double battles, a huge-ass world, updated visuals, weather, and so on. GenII to GenIII was a huge leap.

    And while I agree that GenIV didn't really change anything (I haven't played it), Generation V (BW) effectively modernized GenIII by introducing Pokemon to very impressive 3D, giving it a decent plot, furthering online multiplayer development, streamlining language controls, and just generally giving it an epic theme in comparison to GenII/III.

    In contrast, there might be numerous Megaman spinoffs but the sequels within each spinoff rarely change anything compared to the previous games. There's also, as stated above, a shitton of Pokemon spinoffs as well, which often happen to be decent games.

    Yes but I didn't feel that many of the third games offered enough to warrant another $40.

    I mean yeah I do agree from a business standpoint that Nintendo should make more, especially since allot of people have moved on from it, but I myself cannot enjoy Pokemon anymore. No I'm not saying it's kiddie (I love how defensive morons always think people are implying this) it's just I have played enough of them for one life time, and unless one is so radically different that it practically redefines the genre, I'm never playing one again.

    And there is simply to many Pokemon now. Sometimes less is more.
