>Starts playing Pearl>Why is this shit so slow?>Day is ruined
>>39980104TO VIRIDIAN CITY
>>39980095I literally dropped the Pokemon anime the moment I saw Dawn. I wasn't really watching it that much by that time, but I remember some movie with May and Dawn and some submarine and thinking "who's this insufferable blue haired cunt, god, I hope she never appears again" and lo and behold, how wrong I was. I also didn't touch the games till gen 5 rolled because gen 4 looked hideous, and playing it years later proved me right. So no, life is not good, gen 4 sucked.
TOTTE OKI FUKUTSU NO KOKORO MOTTE

>Playing Pearl in 2008Why? Platinum is out
>>39980095>turn on CartoonNetworkWasn't this the era of non stop Johnny test?
>>39981290It was a dark era, a lot of the good shit like Edd Ed n Eddy, Grim Adventures and that ended. Loads o shitty Leaf toons and 1 season things no one remembers
>>39980095>You have a copy of PearlI didn't play Pearl.>in your hand and you turn on CartoonNetwork In my country we didn't hace Cartoon Network.>and see thisNo because Pokemon were no longer licensed and they never finished Hoenn.
>>39980095Fuck you I don't want to be 18 again. The past sucks, the present/future is better.
>>39981797you fucking say that in a world where we wont have my bro (stantler btw) in gen 8what kind of world are you living in buddy cause i sure would like to be in it right now just saying
>>39981775>I didn't play Pearl.Likewise.>In my country we didn't have Cartoon Network.We have in ours. Satellite-only, tho.>No because Pokemon were no longer licensed and they never finished Hoenn.Hoenn? Ha! Ours didn't go even past Orange Islands.
guys i have a confession to make... life has been pretty hard after just graduating highschool... it just feels like im getting left behind by everyone and now not even pokemon is free from this soul sucking bleakness that is engulfing my everyday life
>>39980650Man the battery on the original DS lasts forever, shit is so cash.
>>39981772Jesus, was Pokemon already in it's 11th season by the mid way point of D&P?
>>39981873are you a pokefucker?
>>39981846I was going to say Finland but I remembered they skipped Orange Isands
>>39980095>The only gen where Marley was aroundWe’ll never get best waifu again, guys
I remember getting Pokemon Diamond when it came out on April 22nd, 2007 and getting up early everyday to play it for hours. 2006-2008 was one of the best times to be a Pokemon fan. Please take me back.
>>39981075WHY IS ROTOM COMING BACKWHY
>>39980977Nobody cares you fucking faggot
>>39980095>Being a child in 2008Holy shit, am I the only 25+ on /vp/?
>>39982791Define "child". I was 16-17 in 2008, which is legally considered a child.
>>39980095I miss gen4, that was definitely the greatest time i had with pokemon company.It's dead for me now.
>>39982800>I was 16-17 in 2008lol sure
But I wasn't watching the anime in 2008, I was already 19 years old. I was watching moe.
>>39980095>Starting Pokemon during its downfallI'm glad I experienced Pokemania, nothing has or will ever reach half of that Pokemon boom period.
>>39982814Yeah, I wish I was younger than that.
>>39982847>Starting Pokemon during its downfallPokemon's downfall started in 2010 with the reveal of Pokemon Black/White
>>39982863Pokemon's downfall started in 2002 with the reveal of Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire
>>39982791where all my +30's at
>>39982938This is true, I distinctly remember everyone being absolutely furious that you couldn't trade from gen 1 and 2 to gen 3. That was the main thing which killed the Pokemon hype.
>>39980110Most people didn't realize how slow it was until we got platinum which was faster, nice try though.
>>39983474Hey that sounds familiar...
>>39980110>complaining about speed in dp when gen 1 & 2 didn't even have a run buttonhoennbaby?
>>39983577Gen 4 IS slow buddy
>>39982938This is also a correct answer. Ruby and Sapphire was when features started being cut and the story/box legendary became more intrusive, along with introducing the modern Pokemon battle mechanics. Pokemon with supposed to end with Gold and Silver.
>>39983636HGSS is only 6 minutes slower than GS. lmao
>>39983636>USUM is almost 6 hours
>>39981170This, I stopped watching then as well.
The anime should've ended after his battle with Paul
>>39980146This. Pearl should have been the last of the three you bought. Diamond, Platinum THEN Pearl just because you are a completionist. Platinum is the only good one though tbqh
>>39982938Pokemon's downfall objectively started with the release of XY. Any answer before that is just up to personal preference. Every gen has something shitty about it but to say that makes it bad is wrong. There is a steep decline in quality between the games from 2013 to today. Gens 1 and 2 were the peak of the hype for the series, Gen 3 had the side series, it was oozing with soul in things like Pokepark, and the start of the golden age of the series in Emerald, gen 4 had its issues but Platinum and HGSS are some of the best in the series and it still had the same soul with the events that opened new locations that made you catch the pokemon, and B2W2 is the last of the holy quadrilogy of pokemon games with plenty of postgame and an very fleshed out region. The quality didn't start to drop until Junichi Masuda was back at the helm after his soul had been crushed by normies that were filtered out by his magnum opus, BW.
https://youtu.be/PicwdOikaOwMan, I love this opening theme so much! Takes me back to my trip to Japan when the Arceus movie premiered. Had a ton of fun watching it with friends at cinema.[/shitty_blog_post]
>Sakurai added another shillmon instead of Deoxys or Infernapefuck you hack
Actually no, I have to report to the drive in movie theater for my job at 7pm and watch Spider Man 3 for the 100th time followed by Chuck and Larry, Ghost Rider, Knocked Up, Harry Potter, and the Simpsons Movie
>>39982943I'm 36. I am not proud of being here. Bye.
>>39983636it's almost like these are based on how much content there is in the game.
>>39985905god, you must be such a failure in life anon.
>>39980095>he watched the anime when he was a child>he grew up with sinnohZoomercide when?
>>39982863>>39982938Can't wait for 2030 when Gen 12 is out and people are still posting about how Pokemon had it's downfall back in Gen 1/2/3/4/5.
>>39985981There's going to be people who grew up with fucking XY posting here soon. Pokemon is a series aimed towards literal babies, what do you expect? Normal 30-40 year olds aren't going to be talking about a game series with fucking baddy bad or zippy zap.
zoomer sinnohfetus cringe thread
>>39986031Don't worry, we'll shit on them too. You can even join in.
this was my first game
Yeah but you know what is better? Being a responsible adult who can do whatever he wants about half the time.
>>39985931No, the times are usually impacted based on the amount of dialogue and trainers you’re forced to go through.
>>39980095>post-4kidz dub>Ash's lowest winrate of any region>Ash forgets what a Koffing is>shit pokegirl that people only care about because she dresses like a thot, also had a terrible winrate and a raspy smoker voice actress>Rocket motto change suckedDP was terrible
>>39986180I agree. All the cross Evo look like absolute shit too. It was my last game even though before that I put 200 hours in emerald.
>>39980095>gen 4 game>pokemon animethis doesn't seem like a good time
>>39980095The dub was still a shaky at that point and the VA's needed a more time with develop. There were some pretty good voices in DP though, like Conway, Paul and Dawn
>>39986058The only cringe in this thread is you.
>>39983636Is this for Glitchless 100%? If not then it doesn't matter.
>>39980183Sorry for your loss, anon
>>39983558most people played gen 3 before and werent 5 when they first played it zoomer
I watched DP religiously as a kid. I fucking hated it but I still kept watching for some reason. There must not've been anything else on. I don't know.>Ash loses against nearly every gym leader the first time around>Ash spends forever waiting for Fantina to get back instead of just battling the other gym leaders like they had you do in the game>Ash gets a Gible and it never evolves to fuck shit up; we could've had an interesting "Charizard but instead of lazy he's a ruthless killing machine" character arc but instead we just get retard baby blob who doesn't know his own strength and ends up eating shit in the finale>every other filler episode is about some one-off character and their shitmon struggling with an issue that can be solved in part with a friendly no-stakes battle, then team rocket shows up just to get blasted off which fully resolves the one-off character and their shitmon's problem>Ohh god the fucking voice direction; everyone ragged on 4kids for not directly translating the anime, so now we're stuck with this awkward, stilted & rigid garbage voiced by people who sound like they're busy checking their twitter to read their lines in a convincing mannerCN liked to air reruns on the new episode timeslot without any real indication of whether the episode was new or a rerun so I could be exaggerating how repetitive the series was. Even though they had completely identical story beats I'd say the DP-era movies were the best ones we've had since the OG-era. What fucks me up though, is how the series has only gotten worse. Back in 2010/2011, when I saw Ash lose the league to a literal who with legendaries pulled out of his ass, I was sure the series could never get worse. Then BW rolls along and Ash loses to a novice, who proceeds to lose to somebody else. What a shitshow. GG, TPC. GG no re.
>>39981021>>39981075Why is it always the same two people
>>39980095Im getting so nostalgic, im actually dizzyFuck this shit bros. I hate getting older and i hate the way the world is now.
>>39989979>nowIt's always been horrible. But I get what you mean. I'm still in college but I'm conflicted on how to feel about the past. Feels like I was living in an ivory tower. The only thing I can idolize is the feeling of stability, if I feel like it. I can't live thinking it was better back then. I was still unsure about a lot of stuff. While thinking about the past does make me a bit nostalgic, I mostly feel an urge to move towards a position where my perception becomes a reality. I can't be bothered to reminisce about the past knowing already how many years I've spent growing up to get to this moment in time. I want to keep moving forward.
>>39988640I was 11 when I first played it, smooth brain.
>>39990148It's a lot more complex than it used to be.
Gen 4 was the peak of Pokemon is all mediums. Sinnoh was chill as fuck with some of the best designs of any gen and and it was arguably some of the best girls in the franchise (Dawn, Cynthia, Maylene, Gardenia, Cheryl)The anime was in top form, taking everything seriously but also knowing how to have fun, and the movies were pretty good and ambitious. And finally to say nothing about the games, which are still some the best in the franchises history.It was true golden age that nobody saw, even today>mfw we can never return to those days
>>39985021Doesn't matter if Gen III was good or not. Pokemania flat lined at Gen III and it looked like Pokemon was just a late 90s fad and it was on the way out. Seriously I knew like 1 person who played Gen III when it was out. The popularity of the DS revitalized Pokemon's popularity and cemented it as something that's not going away any time soon. I don't disagree with your post at all about the quality dying with the 3DS however
>>39983636How is LGPE over 3 hours? I swore i beat it less than that and I wasn't even trying to speed run
>>39983636>Cut scenes in Gen VII aren't too l.....
>>39980095I was happy in 2008 finding these in Target. i didnt have DS yet
>>39986031It just feels weird to me since every kid I know likes Youtube and Fortnite. I don't think I've seen a kid play Pokemon since like Gen II and the anime doesn't get much air time here
>>39990326So was I, and I still had played gen 3 beforehand and thought gen 4 was insufferably slow.
>>39992064I don't know why you faggots keep dicksucking gen 4 because of DPP, when the best (and only redeeming) part of that generation were HGSS.Get some fucking taste.
>>39992960>Best main games>Best remakes>Best spinoff gamesGee I wonder
>>39989126Brock doing nothing kind of sucked to. He literally only existed to get a boner and then for Corgunk to poison jab him. Sinnoh had such a strong gust of wind however during it's middle era. Ash not jobbing gyms, mons evolving, May returning, Hunter J and the contests were interesting, seeing recurring characters and less one offs who get their problem solved by Team Rocket blasting off. Around after Snowpoint gym it petered out again. Sinnoh could of used a Orange Islands/Battle Frontier filler arc to trim the fat, speed up the main story and give us artificial but fun steaks
>>39980095Fuck I remember me and my friend rushing home to watch the premiere of this season and being so excited.
Watching Paul fucking up Ash's shit was always fun to watch even the contests were good.
>>39980095Back when my grandmom was still alive.
>>39980966together we will be
>>39985931Yes, speedruns are notorious for wasting time in the Festival Plaza.
>>39983558Imagine starting with Gen 4 lmaoZOOM ZOOM
>>39982791By 2008 I was old enough to know the games had been declining by gen 3 and that they weren't going to change course, I dropped the series after putting up with gen 4 enough to finish Diamond and Platinum. Only exposure I've had to the series since is playing Showdown.
>>39980095I miss it bros.
post that first reaction when you played explorers of time and darknesswasn't sure what to expect coming off rescue team, but hoo boy it was goodgetting to hidden land for the first time was something
>>3998279125 here. Got to enjoy the last breath of the pokemania. Watching the 1st movie on vhs and the second on the big screen was cash.
>>39992938That one gym that requires you to catch a bunch of pokemon, and other gym restrictions
>>39980095>watching CN after Toonami got whittled down to naruto filler and reruns before being cancelled
>>399800952008 was a period where I wasn't really playing Pokemon anymore, obviously I picked it back up since I'm on this board but I only played Gen 1-3
>>39993570Its my destiny
>>39994351Suppose but it's not hard to catch like 30 shit mons but flinging a great ball at them
all that time I spent watching dawns legs and thighs as her skirt flutters around
