      Pokemon stopped being good at this point.

      Beginning of the end.
      Letting people play as a lame girl ruined the series.

      Actually it ended with red, blue, and green. Yellow was a gimmick. Gold and Silver had mechanics that were by then already too late. The majority of Pokemon game spin offs are better than the "main" game.

      No.
      Emerald was the decline, it established that the previous two games are just "demos" with a third game being released with improvements.
      Yellow was a meme game based on the anime, having pikachu as your starter and team rocket with some minigames. It was better than R/B but it was also it's own thing.
      Crystal didn't add a huge amount, it just reordered some things, changed and added a few events but overall similiar to yellow, minor changes to the gameflow.
      Emerald threw a bunch of extra post game extras to do and made the game feel much more "complete" than the two mainline, something Yellow and Crystal didn't do.

      No reason to buy any pokemon game. Wait till the third version. If no third version that gen was shit.
      see: X/Y is shit, no third game. Sw/Sh are shit, no third game. Sc/Vi are shit. No third game.

        I didn't pay attention to it before but trading between silver and crystal made me appreciate how good the moving sprites for pokémon were in crystal. It's definitely better than whatever they were doing around black/white.

          Much as I like BW, I liked the cute low-frame animations more for sprites. They persisted for gens 3-5 and were generally quite nice. They're just the right amount of lively without compromising your ability to view them as a proxy, whereas the tweened sprites are overly busy and often just look awkward, even if they do still ultimately work.
          anything's better than the official models and animations, honestly

    I still don't know why berries were even a thing, why craft a berry ball when you could just use a great ball or ultra ball on a sleeping weakened pokemon instead?

          yeah a lot of them are SUPPOSED to be better than ultraballs. Ultra balls have a 2x catch rate and the Fast ball is supposed to have a 4x catch rate on pokemon that can flee like the legendary beasts for example but due to a coding error they only work correctly on the first 3 pokemon in that list meaning they only work on Magnemite, Grimer, and Tangela. The moon ball is supposed to be 4x on pokemon that evolve with moon stone but its accidentally coded to only work on pokemon that evolve with a burn heal... so no pokemon.

              Nothing. Love ball was supposed to be better for catching opposite gender pokemon but they fricked that one up too and its better for catching the same gender. I think the only ones that work correctly are the heavy ball, lure ball and friend ball. Level ball has a weird quirk where it doesn't take into account the pokemons current HP into the catching formula for some reason but otherwise works correctly with its level gimmick. Apricorn balls were very weird.

              the burn heal thing happens for a specific reason. it's because the burn heal in gen 2 has the same index number as the moon stone in gen 1. They coded the moon ball and then eventually changed the index numbers of the items but didn't update this ball, so that's why it's coded to the wrong item.

                yeah similar thing happens with the fast ball its supposed to be something like "these 3 tables" which would include all the pokemon that flee at different rates but they fricked it up and instead of "these 3 tables" its "these 3 pokemon" messing it all up iirc very funny little bugs that basically ruin what would be pretty useful balls for that generation. Fast ball would have saved me so much time with the legendary beasts as a kid

                do you know about the legendary beast bug in FRLG? when you encounter them, entei and raikou know roar, and if they use it on you to end the battle, they literally just permanently despawn so you can never catch them. suicune doesn't know roar at this level because it uses its learn set from crystal where it hadn't learned roar yet so that it couldn't roar you away in its static encounter at cerulean cape. so the only reason why this FRLG bug doesn't occur with suicune is because they made crystal version.

                yes I do know about the legendary beast bug in FRLG that shit is insane, you just get locked out of catching some postgame content because they decide to use roar. Its also pretty weird that you get locked out of tin tower in crystal if you accidentally faint a legendary beast. That was before doing the e4 reset static encounters.

                oh yeah and on top of them roaring to become uncatchable their stats were bugged too I think? like they were supposed to at least have 3 stats with good IVs but its bugged and they always have like 1 IV in 3 stats instead so not only do they become uncatchable if you arent careful they have dogshit stats on top of it if you DO catch them

                Same thing happened with latios and latias in Ruby and Sapphire. They fixed this for emerald though, so at least they eventually caught on. basically the only way to get the beasts with decent stats in gen 3 was with the gamecube games.

                Anonymous

                I didn't know the latis stats were fricked up but that makes sense. Yeah having to pay up for all the gen 3 games to get decent mons is kinda insane even if it wasn't intentional. Even if you buy emerald for the best experience you are forced to have ruby or sapphire to be able to use the gamecube bonus discs for jirachi. Emerald is another story of shit being turbo fricked though with its RNG seed being set on game start and never progressing making RNG manipulation super easy for getting perfect stats/shinies. Its kind of a miracle that pokemon got away with being so fricking broken from day 1 and never really went a game without major fricking bugs.

                I'll be honest, while I don't think anyone in their right mind wants to go back to "buy two main games + at least one console game + at least one spinoff or you're NOT completing the pokedex this gen", there was undeniably a charm to shit being cordoned off in different games. Gave the transfer system more of an express purpose when you couldn't catch damn near 80% of the pokedex in the main region of the game.

                It was charming sure but I think 2 main games + at least one console game + spinoff + a gba gamecube link cable + normal gba link cable + possibly a fricking E-reader and some cards for all the content is absolutely insanity

                gen 3 was when they dropped the "gotta catch em all" tagline, so I don't think they ever really expected anyone to try to do it.

              • 3 weeks ago
                Anonymous

                Eh, that's highly debatable. The bonus for completing the pokedex was infinitesimal, but the idea wasn't to make an unachievable goal, it was more to create a realistic sense of collecting- you can't truly have one of everything unless you're impossibly dedicated, but the more dedicated you are, the more unique things you have and the less holes there are to fill.
                You know, looking at it from this perspective, I can almost see why they designed most of the new gen 2 mons... you know, like that. The idea of a player just not being able to get something that is wildly powerful is a lot more brutal than them just not being able to get some nothing mon that's got a novel type but no real purpose in battle.
