            I hate you people so much. You are acting like the lack of a split makes the game harder. It does not in any way, shape, or form do that. All it does is handicap Pokémon, but since each game is functionally its own meta, it doesn't fricking matter. There will always be shitmons and good picks regardless of the mechanics unless balance is handled so perfectly that all options are equal. Due to the type chart, this is pretty much impossible. Emerald is good for a Pokémon game, but that quality is entirely separate from whether or not it has the physical-special split. I don't give a shit if you're baiting or just wrong, go enjoy your evening and get the frick off Ganker so I don't see more of your braindead opinions.

            >You are acting like the lack of a split makes the game harder

              It doesn't make the game harder, it makes movepools better. Who the frick wants to have to pass on STAB or attack with the weaker attacking stat during the in-game? I like Gen 3 metagames a lot, but really, it's just more intuitive to look at the icon that indicates which category of move you're trying to learn than it is to memorize which types do which type of damage. It's more interesting when your mon gets to actually leverage its stars and typing as you play than it is to try to cope, especially with a roster like Gen 2 or 3 that happens to be full of shitmons.

                That doesn't make the game any harder, it's just more tedious. I would rather have the option to click the STAB button than have a bunch of slow frail mixed attackers compelled to just use a hodgepodge of the best generic moves. It doesn't even affect some mons. Swampert, for example, is pretty much 100% identical with or without the split. I (a good player who isn't going to waste his time navigating through the game with shitmons even though I know I can because the in-game is really fricking easy) will just gravitate toward mons that are borderline unaffected by the split. These are Mons that can still just press the STAB button. Your alternative is slapping moves like Earthquake on shit to hit for 30% when you could have just put it on a mon with STAB. Again, I really like Gen 3 metagames: I think they're unique and emphasize typing in interesting ways. The problem is a lot of Mons are severely limited without Hidden Power, so you should pretty much not use them unless you intend to arbitrarily limit yourself to beat a game for children coming up on 20 years old.

                Your ideas are dumb.

                And yet somehow, you're still whining about the lack of split making the game more tedious (i.e. harder for your zoomer brain). Curious.

                I'm not whining, moron, the game is easy. I will simply use mons that aren't hampered by the split if I want to replay the game. However, it's a shame that all of the shitmons are even worse than they are in subsequent generations because they can't do anything with their STAB.

                >just because you have to skip 90% of moves on a Poochyena
                You don't have to skip those moves though. You're just bad at the game and don't understand their utility because you're used to your precious DS games holding your hand and letting you mindlessly click the ebin STAB button.

                Oh yeah, you're so smart for realizing you can use Dark STAB on Geodude and other mons with bad Sp def because it will do more than Normal moves even though the Attack stat is higher. Shut the frick up, dude. I've played enough competitive of every single Gen of Pokémon from Gens 3 through 8 to know the utility of any move showing up on the screen. It's not a terribly high bar to clear. There isn't a reason to put the time into raising a collection of pixels that has to cope with a subpar toolkit when I could just use mons that actually get to use the free 50% damage boost. I could easily beat the game doing so, but the amount of time it would take wouldn't be worth it, much like talking to you. You can stop with the bait any time because you're blatantly incorrect about every assertion you've made.

                Almost every Pokemon can use the free 50% damage boost. If you want to use Shadow Ball on Gengar nothing is stopping you.

                You do this every time we have this argument. There is no reason to use Shadow Ball on Gengar when you could just use elemental punches unless you really need to hit Alakazam or something.

                There are mons hampered by the lack of the split. The fact of the matter is that there are 3 gens without the split and 6 gens with it. This, with the power of retrospect, allows one to make the observation that a lot of Pokémon are noticeably worse without the split. A ton of them have really bad options to the point that their best sets use Hidden Power. You're an unironic masochist if you subject yourself to that in-game. If you try to argue, all I have to say is everyone's favorite: Sneasel. There are more mons that have to settle for really annoying sets, like Breloom and Mightyena, than their are mons who get buffs from the old system like Gengar (elemental punches) and Aerodactyl (had 70 BP Flying STAB with HP Flying). It's really not debatable. Cope. I'm going to do something else now.

                Literally nothing in the game is hampered by the lack of split because everything in the game has no split. There's a reason why Gengar is one of the best Pokemon in the game in Gen 3 despite you b***hing and moaning that you can't effortlessly click the STAB button.

                >SN-SNEASEL!!
                Sneasel is even worse in Gen 4 thanks to the moronic power creep.

                And Shadow Ball sucks on Gengar. Its best physical move is Explosion. Gengar is a trade evolution in the first place so I'm kind of pissed you even brought up this specific Mon. You would have a better point if you had sad Banette.

                >Literally nothing in the game is hampered by the lack of split because everything in the game has no split. There's a reason why Gengar is one of the best Pokemon in the game in Gen 3 despite you b***hing and moaning that you can't effortlessly click the STAB button.
                All it does is make raw stats more important, you absolute troglodyte. Everything has to use non-stab moves that are generically good or coverage that targets their answers. It's not fricking difficult, but what it does is severely punish anything that has a high attacking stat in a type that isn't one of its STABs. It's compounded by pretty lackluster movepools, even in the context of the Gen. Again, the mons are retroactively much worse, and therefore can be said to be hampered by the lack of a split that made them better. How fricking ignorant are you that you can't or won't understand this? I understand no mon has access to the split in Gen 3, but that doesn't mean they all operate well within those parameters. Most, in fact, are quite awful and I'm not willing to waste my time using them. Conversely, I will use a lot of shitmons in later gens because they actually function. It's not a matter of not having brain capacity or patience, why the frick would you try to hit a nail with a busted hammer?

                >Sneasel is even worse in Gen 4 thanks to the moronic power creep.
                Ah yes, because physical Pursuit, Ice Shard, Ice Punch, and Night Slash surely made this mon worse. So what if it's worse than Weavile, it objectively has more function than the Gen 3 version using SD with Ghost and Fighting coverage as its only option.

                Yeah bro Gengar sure does feel severely punished by being one of the best Pokemon in the game. Are you sure you're not just bad?

                >Most, in fact, are quite awful
                Even more Pokemon are awful in Gen 4 thanks to the power creep the split partly contributed to.

                >Ah yes, because physical Pursuit, Ice Shard, Ice Punch, and Night Slash surely made this mon worse
                Correct, because now literally everything else in the game got similar boosts.

                To add onto this, you aren't thinking any more just because you have to skip 90% of moves on a Poochyena or whichever of Hoenn's finest shitmons you've decided to use. Manectric and Swellow still get to just press buttons, whereas actual shitmons are even worse than they are with the PSS. I, personally, would prefer being able to use the shitmons in some capacity that doesn't make them feel like they're pure garbage because they have to use weak, non-STAB moves on already bad stats. Pretending Mightyena is expanding my mind just because I carry it to give things -1 and use Frustration instead of Crunch is just a coping mechanism. The mon being shit has not increased the difficulty of the experience because if I was engaging my brain, I would simply use a Pokémon not hampered by the mechanics.

    I know that game freak is a "SMALL INDIE COMPANY" But I do think that even so expecting black and white to have had properly scaled sprites like some people posit is a bit unreasonable of an ask.
    Keep in mind you would be making, at a minimum, two sets of sprites for front and back, each with about a dozen frames of unique hand drawn sprites, for over 500 different pokemon. I'm genuinely not even sure if there would be enough space on the cartridge considering each frame would probably need to contain the entire pokemon in it instead of segmenting them into parts.
