        Does that not just come from Nintendo being the publisher, or was Mario not considered kiddyshit by the time the PS2 was out?

          the anime at the time was shilling the baby mons hard to sell merch. there's interviews saying they got negative attention from that and designed the gen 3 mons to be more cool and less cute

    For me, it's the simplicity.

    I miss just being a kid on an adventure, that "a boy & his dog" feel. No rival being your cutesy best friend, no champion being introduced in the first 10 minutes & holding your hand throughout the game, no other characters constantly stopping you every 5 steps, no being tied to a legendary Pokemon, no save the world story. Just a simple adventure where your just a kid in a big wide world.

        I love old pokemon. The good 2D games. Seeing what the devs have done to it is sad. Look at Fromsoft for example, going from Dark Souls to Elden Ring. They expanded on every system and made things better.

        Pokemon however, goes from great (gameboy,3ds) to shit (scarlet).

    It had better map design but worse combat mechanics.

    >Map design
    Every cave was a fricking maze and some had puzzles in them. The Rock Tunnel let you sequence break if you were smart about it. Badges 3-6 can be obtained out of order. This was a glorious time when item-gated exploration was leveraged really well and dungeon design was at its peak.

    >Combat
    In general, Pokémon balancing is awkward pre-Gen IV as you'd have outliers like Sneasel getting fricked over by their offensive type and also somehow Ghost is a physical element in these games, but for Gen I it got even more fricked. Offensive Ghost, Bug, Poison and Dragon moves just didn't fricking exist, and just about every Ghost, Grass and Bug type came tacked on with a Poison type, further making Psychic more powerful and Poison even more irrelevant. More of the Rock types came with a Ground type so the defensive type was ass at being defensive.

    In summation, HGSS are the best games because they combined the old school map design with the Phys/Spec split, and even had following Pokémon to boot.

      HGSS lets me catch a level 50 Magikarp early to shit on the rest of the game with an overleveled Gyarados with HM moves, so that's nice. Who cares about the level curve or Pokemon distribution when you have that?
