                Not him, but the reason is clear. They simply color coded the dialogue based on sex, I'm sure it wasn't some grand reason for it. It's simply aesthetic.

                Just as his jab was pointless, speculating about a ultimately inconsequential design choice is equally pointless.

                Sevii Islands are boring bullshit linear hallways. Who the fuck is that a better post-game than an entire region to reexplore.
                The Kanto post-game actually feels like some thought was put into, since there's a whole entire puzzle with the electric central to solve to get to Mt. Silver. Sevii Islands are literally bullshit levels just get to trading with other gen 3 games lmao.

          Pretty much all dungeons. Gen 2 Kanto a
          is a complete facade, I would have much rather they used the resources that went into it to flesh out and expand Johto instead of this gimped shit that is a total disservice to the region

            Game Freak being incompetent, what else is new. They couldn't even fit Johto in, then when their boss bailed them out, they decided to shove in Kanto for some reason. Gewunners gain nothing because they've already been to Kanto, and Gentwoers lose because Johto is stuck being the smallest region instead of for the expansive super-region it should have been.

              I didn't really mind it in Johto and I don't mind the occasional empty dungeon (there were a few in RBY too like Diglett's Cave, Power Plant, Seafoam Islands, Cerulean Cave, although interestingly none of those are compulsory, I don't know if that's coincidence or not).

              But what was jarring was that after playing RBY the Kanto in GSC was soooo empty in comparison. Still a fantastic game though, I really loved it and going to Kanto afterwards was amazing even if it was scaled down and more empty. Everyone at my school (who was still playing Pokemon at that point) was so hyped about it.

              While I do think the fact that most of the dungeons lack any trainers is pretty lame, I think saying johto doesn't have enough trainers is wrong, if you ask me it has the perfect amount of trainers.

                I' think Johto having comparatively less trainers is because many trainers give you rematches allow to to rematch them.
                I remember someone posted the amount of trainers each region, I don't remember which region had the most or least.

        RSEmerald for exploration. The secret base locations added a lot because I after the ones with the largest amount of space and a lot of my friends had fought each other so their base locations were everywhere. Did not care for acrobikes much while the mach bike puzzles were pretty fun.

        For ridge hopping and shortcuts in general gen 1 was the best. Jhoto has way too much unavoidable grass that is blatantly only there to make hedges desired. The very first area of the game is horrible about this. Gen IV and beyond are too ugly to be fun exploring.

          I'm surprised you didn't mention the sea explorstion. Sure, tenta/gul encounter spam was much too repetitive, but the deep sea areas and short cuts, the completely optional town, the crashed ship, sky tower with the cracked floor were all really great. Especially how they were used for access to one shots like regis or repeatable ones like heart scales. Was pretty sad imo the first time they made the water really worth investigating it was introduced with such awful encounters and then basically never reimplemented.
          3 and 4 are probably my favorite all around, what makes gen 4 ugly for you While i don't agree, my immediate guesses would be maybe the pseudo 3d, the actual pokemon designs, or the sprite design.

      Superchect and absolute truthpilled

      I recall hearing that technically Golem is the only "secret" mon in the first generation (aside from Mew obviously), as it can't be caught in the wild and no trainer in the entirety of Kanto uses it, meaning that you can't be aware of its existence unless you get lucky and happen to trade a graveler
      now, of course in real life someone would have told you and in-game an NPC in Celadon I think tells you how Graveler turned into a different pokemon after a trade, but I still think it's a little neat fact, although i'm not completely sure if it's true or not

      They're okay I guess. Perfectly competent remakes that do their job fine. In general I would recommend gen 1 over them simply because gen 1 is a unique experience, but there's nothing wrong with FRLG at all. I recently replayed them and the Sevii Island postgame is a lot more underwhelming than I remember, so Kanto is still the main selling point.

                would you mind complimenting this with your preferences for what makes a good game? this isn't an attempt at the cheap tactic of dismissing your position because you happen to enjoy entry x, but because I'm sincerely interested in having the perspectives of others as an additional lens through which to consider the game

    I don't understand this, isn't it common for people where you live to enjoy multiple pokemon games? I'd assume that's the case most places. Why is it so tribal here?

      because most people here don't actually like pokemon. Most probably weren't even born when Pokemon came out They're not even real Genwunners, just zoomers trying to fit in, they only latch onto Kanto because Game Freak and TPC shills Gen 1 so much. They have to shit on Johto to make Kanto look better because they don't actually like Kanto.

        but if we take that position where does that leave us? I don't think there's a productive way forward with that premise
        what if I just ask you what you like about pokemon and you ask me? I feel like that's infinitely better than such a pessimistic presumption
