      The story and characters were very memorable and gave us the best Pokegirls in the series.

      How the fuck was the story worse than in XY? Alola haters are braindead.

        Yes, and Lucario was a mistake. So why do they keep on making it again?

        Lopunny was way more blatant imo. Although they're both from the same gen so your point still stands

      Most of it, really. Not many flaws other than the usual problems the series has, and there were plenty of improvements like Pokeride, graphical updates, and seperating the map from a grid.
      You can easily tell how good they are when desperate bait like

      Can only list minor harmless changes or just blatantly lie about what's actually in the game.

        weren't improvements and Alola was so much less colorful than ORAS that they needed to fix it in USUM and they only fixed it slightly.
        They tried to go full 3D and move away from Chibi on 480p hardware.

        Pokéride was terrible. Getting gifted Pokémon you can't even use in battle goes against the core principles of the series. There wasn't even much of a need for them because the level design was just horrible straightways between towns with little to none dungeons and puzzles. At least have a boss fight against the Rideable Pokémon beforehand like a few did in PLA.

        Just because you don't like HM's does not mean the solution is good.

        For me Pokéride and losing the grid are straight downgrades. I've never understood why people bitch so much about HMs because I've always appreciated them as effective game design that links battles and the overworld together mechanically. Grid movement is just a hard preference for me and I believe was the critical step in what ultimately killed the games for me, totally overworld Pokémon and no random encounters.

      story than other Pokemon games on 3DS
      The story was fine in SM before USUM "fixed" it with unnecessary additions and changing Lusamine's character. It was still miles above XY and ORAS with their "villain with 'good intentions' is about to end the world".

      It was better than Gen V's story, BW/2 was cheesy melodrama, something I'd expect from some lameass Final Fantasy title. Lusamine and Lillie's relationship was handled way better.

        no it wasn't. Lusamine was a terrible villain and family drama is boring as a main plot point.

      Gen 5 story was much worse, just a rehash of Team Rocket with worse characters and a fake PETA veneer that was never explored in any interesting or satisfactory fashion. It also gave us the ultimate fujobait Gary Stu, N, an easy contender for worst character in the franchise.

      This is the opinion I would expect from a bort who admits to not playing the game though, lol
