Unova

The more I think about it, the more I realize Pokémon peaked in 2010-2012.

BW3 is the only thing that can salvage Pokémon's dwindling reputation but, knowing the staff that made BW/2 so good are gone, it's not something I want.

    Dogshit main games, disgusting low quality monster designs, awful spin-offs, ugly cobbled region, anime reboot.

    Quite literally the worst era of pokemon there’s ever been. Gen 5 has 0 redeeming qualities.

    This is where it peaked for me, but honestly if they were given more time SV could’ve come closer

    I’ve only played most of base game and all of Teal Mask so far and Teal Mask alone was one of the best Pokémon things I’ve played in years

    Arceus was great though, gotta give credit

    I hope they’re given the opportunity to make the truly great game the series is capable of producing

        Why do you morons keep bringing this up? It's based on a country, not 1:1 copy of a country.

          That's why it's shit, Unova started the theme park trend. Every other region prior was based on a specific part of a nation, Unova started off based on israelite York and then turned into a general USA-themed amusement park

            No? The previous regions also have biomes that aren’t in their inspirations. No one criticizes Hoenn for having a Greek city.
            The actual theme-park-ness started with Kalos, where it’s LITERALLY just France but simplified and Pokemon slapped on. This made all regions feel small ever since.

                I don’t care about your opinion but you pretending to “””win””” when someone responded to your claims and all you did was copium is very laughable.

                I would not. There are better biome subtypes they could have used in either case

                I happen to disagree, but I would like to see more otherworldly biomes too. Any ideas?

          I dislike it, climatically. It doesn't fit the continental climate of NY.
          Putting a desert in a tropical region in Hoenn was moronic as well, that being said.

            Not only can it be argued that Pokepark 2 is better than 1, and Rumble Blast being the best Rumble game by far, but the other are definitely good. Conquest alone is the gold standard the was never replicated, and Gates to Infinity was pretty great too. All I’m trying to show is that good spinoffs died after.

                While I think Gen 5 is slightly better than 3 and 4, I agree it died after 5 and that 3-5 generally are up on that peak anyway there’s no point in arguing which is at the tipping top anyway.

    Gen 5 feel like a downturn for the series in more ways than one, I will admit gen 5 has some charm and some nice things going for it, but I am not going to pretend it's anywhere near being a good generation, the Pokemon designs have been beaten like a dead horse by this point but for very good reasons, the majority of the dex looks like shit and it salts the wound further that many feel like rehashes of gen 1 Pokemon, you can only use gen 5 Pokemon in BW 1 and the few that actually look cool and interesting are obtainable far too late into the game or evolve so late that it's pretty much pointless using them in your team throughout the entirety of the game. The story is vaguely interesting but it's very pretentious, it tries to "tackle more adult topics" but it fumbles pretty badly at it, N exists and he's just annoying, the game was horribly linear with very little to explore. The region is based on israelite York, which is one of the shittiest places a region could have ever been based off of but I guess Gamefreak reeeeeally wanted to appease their israelite shareholders. The few credits I can give gen 5 as a whole is the music, which is pretty memorable, the seasons which give the game a lot of charm and the side content, gen 5 had some fun side stuff, the battle subway was pretty fun, the movie stuff from BW 2 is mostly meh but it can be kinda fun and it does reward you with an unique visual effect, ETC, the only reason people would shill gen 5 is because they're either zoomers who grew up with it and haven't developed the ability to think critically or morons who think it's good because it isn't as dogshit as SWSH. Compared gen 5 to previous generations and it falls flat on it's face embarrassingly.

      Holy mother of shit taste
      Unova mons being worse is a meme and it’s obvious the temporary dex lock filtered you as well.
      The story isn’t perfect but for Pokemon it’s great. Better to bite off more than you can chew than barely bite anything at all.
      >linearity
      Progression overall is, but the region isn’t at all. There’s a frickton of nooks and crannies, and I’d prefer that in Unova instead of an alternate universe Unova with less exploration and “muh gyms badges are in a different leader lol”
      >israelite York
      Not really a negative except for introducing Black folk, which were actually a maneagable amount in those games

        Not him and i think gen 5 is good but what's telling you you claiming gen 5 is "peak" isn't the result of you still being a slave to the popular narrative, since the narrative switched sides now? Do you think GSC and DP are bad and Platinum "saved" Sinnoh? If so then i have bad news for you anon

          I see your point, but the general opinion flipping to like Unova happened around 2019, but I flipped to like it roughly 2015ish. As for Sinnoh and Johto, that’s not what I think.

        "Filtered"? The frick do you mean you spastic frick? I got through the game just fine but I'm not going to pretend I liked most of the Pokemon, say what you will about gen 2 and 4 having limited dexes, at least the Pokemon available in those games are appealing and can be made viable with the right sets, BW 1 don't even give you access to the fricking fishing rod until post game, the game desperately wants you to use the elemental monkeys and gives one of them to you, in previous gens you had to sort yourself out, not be given a gift Pokemon meant to help you a gym exclusively.
        I'm nearly 30 by now and I pretty much grew with the series since I was kid, I don't get what the frick that has to deal with this, when I first saw the gen 5 starters off of a magazine going over the details for gen 5 I thought they were fake because they looked so bland and shitty compared to the starters of previous generations, I didn't follow any fricking narrative, I wasn't even active on /vp/ back when BW came out and I didn't even have much access to the internet due to living in a rural area, I didn't like the designs from the majority of gen 5 Pokemon and I still don't, there's no "narrative" involved, just a guy's honest thoughts on the matter.
