Least favorite Pokémon generation?

Re: Least favorite Pokémon generation?

I hated gen 3 also. Gen 1 was the first and most memorable and the highest point for me cause so many friends played it. Gen 2 was almost as good really cause you saw most of the old pokemon along with some new ones and you revisit kanto. Gen 3 lacked any of the old pokemon for most of the game which was depressing cause some of us look at a new generation and want to take our old favorites into battle with the new stuff to see how we fair. The only good thing in Gen 3 was Blaziken and Swellow. The rest were crap. Gen 4 was alot better, and Gen 5 wasn't really that bad either. I think Nintendo loved Primeape and never mentioned it cause they just had to have a fiery ape and then a fiery pig as starters.

In my opinion, 3 is the best, although that may just be because I started with Emerald.
1 & 2 are also brilliant - Typhlosion and Charizard, not to mention Celebi :D

I was a little turned off by Gen 4 because Galactic are all idiots, but some of the Pokemon (Lucario, Torterra, Gallade, Luxaray and Leafeon, to name a few) were pretty good IMO.

Gen 5...I dunno. I guess Gen 5 is my least favorite. I still haven't started Victory Road yet. It just doesn't feel like Pokemon. Some of the new 'mons seem to be done in a different style, which makes me sad because I liked the old style. Plus there are NO old pokemon. NONE. NOT A ONE

Gen V, y u no have Gyarados?

Not to mention Plasma are also idiots.

Get back to the Victory Road, beat up the Elite Four, get to the credits.

There will be old Pokémon all over the friggin' place once you do that.

There are plenty of old Pokémon postgame, plus there is the Dream World. The point of having no old Pokémon during the story is so that it would feel fresher than e.g. gen 4 which still had endless Zubat and Geodude and Magikarp.

But I liked the endless Zubat, Geodude and Magikarp!
They were good for Exp!

Also I will try to beat Victory Road again. Will probably end up tanking it with one mon and having to level grind again though :(

You can always just grind off of Audino. I can beat the E4 with 4 level 50's (Although, to be fair, I had a level 60 Volcarona).


Also, Gen III for the win!

And Graveler. The combination of Rock and Ground, the low Speed and Special Defense, the old imperfect Sturdy ability... Like Geodude, but more XP. A Grass-type's stairs to fame are made of grey(ish brown) rock!

Mine is Gen 3. I didn't enjoy Hoenn that much, it seemed a bit bland to me.

Re: Least favorite Pokémon generation?

I love them all, but I love Unova slightly less than the others. Probably because I lost interest in Pokémon around then (I was a bit obsessed with My Little Pony during 2011 and 2012). I regained interest in the series around 2013, like when X/Y came out.

Gen 6 a bit, mostly due to the awful amourshipping fandom (....mean people in general tend to ruin things for me cuz of how much i dislike meaness :<).
Also gen 7 cuz gen 7 is a bit boring (and less pokemon-ish too IMO) xD

I didn't care for Gen 7 much. I found the games alright, but I think the Sun and Moon Anime series is dreadful, in my opinion, bad pacing and bad story lines, also the animation is terrible.

Re: Least favorite Pokémon generation?

Although I greatly dislike the amour fandom, I think I still like gen 6 more than gen 7.

For one: Korrina. I'm madly in love with Korrina, so she's a huuuuuge one for me xD Honestly, gen 6 was even my favorite gen for awhile (before i learned of the awful fandom) just due to her alone.

<3

And theres other stuff I really like about gen 6, like the fairy types, and the region in general looks pretty in the games xD

Still, it has dropped down as a favorite for me quite a bit, due to awful fans. But I still find theres a lot to actually love about kalos.

(but, anime wise, kalos is easily my least favorite series, because i don't wanna be involved with a shipping that creates too much DRAMA >_<;;; i still love korrina's eps, though xD)

Re: Least favorite Pokémon generation?

I like gen six a lot. Actually, I like all the gens. Though the ones I'm less familiar with are five and seven. The things people say about Lusamine freak me out a bit, so I haven't played too far in Alola yet despite having all four games. I'm hoping that'll change soon, because they are a lot of fun to play.

Re: Least favorite Pokémon generation?

I think gen 6 is quite a good gen. I enjoyed the X and Y games a lot.
I did as well. I thought X/Y were great games, and I still find it cool that I caught Yveltal on my first try with a Quick Ball. xD

Re: Least favorite Pokémon generation?

The games are good, I just wish the main shipping of the kalos anime (amourshipping) didn't bring in so much online crazyness.

It really makes the gen look like theres something just wrong about it :(

But, I guess kalos can't really be 'bad', if Korrina, who's also from that gen, seems so GOOD for me.....still why are amourshippers so nasty o_O; And why over the idea of A COUPLE?! Love isn't supposed to be a bad thing at all....
....

Then again, my old crush on Riku was kind of no better than the amourshipping fandom. So maybe I have no reason to complain about them being impossable to understand.

I just hate the stupidity and suffering in this world. It REALLY confuses me, whether or not it should be justified or not.

But, yes, gen 6 did bring things I did like a lot. Theres Korrina, who I swear probably saved my life. And the fairy type shows me more that being girly is a great thing^^ and its something introduced in, yes, gen 6.

I really need to calm down about amourshipping. Its not like EVERY SINGLE AMOURSHIPPER ON EARTH is a bad person....

Re: Least favorite Pokémon generation?

The games I dislike the most are Diamond and Pearl, but HeartGold, SoulSilver, and Platinum more than made up for those.

My least favourite generation, then, is definitely VI. X and Y felt unfinished. There's lore missing everywhere, and mechanics such as Sky Battles felt half-baked. While past games didn't have the most advanced of plots, they did at least drop interesting hints and brief backstories to add some interest. I also think the Pokemon look much less dynamic and alive in 3D thanks to their rather boring idle animations.

Then there's Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. I was disappointed they didn't include more features from Emerald such as the Battle Frontier. Nice games, but they didn't make the cut for me, even though I like the new incarnations of the evil teams.
