https://tiermaker.com/create/pokmon-main-series-games-354785Rank the mainline Pokemon games that you've played. Be honest about what you have and have not played.It's been a really long time since I've played a Pokemon game so these opinions are outdated, but I really want to see what the consensus is on what the best and worst games are so I can get back into one.
>>45922294what a terrible list OP
>>45922423i highly suggest you play b2w2
>>45922294mate if you played a version of the same game, you've played the other. the differences are negligible
>>45922423You have a bad list, you are shitting on the newer games, and ranking them as D tier because your favorite youtuber said it was bad. You ranked HGSS as C-tier when they were arguably the best games of all time. I highly doubt you tried them as they had so many features that made the game great, despite it's flaws. It had the battle frontier just like platinum, why rank it C-tier? The only thing I agree with your ranking here is platinum, emerald, and sw/sh.
I've enjoyed most of these series up until Masuda left. I can respect that Ohmori's games are trying to be more story intensive, but they're borderline unplayable to me. Feels like there's freedom than ever.
>>45922520* less freedom than ever.
>>45922393Certified based taste
Haven't played anything since SuMo came out. I know I gotta play B2W2, I'm working on it.
D is for games I have never played. I'd really want to play BW2 and USUM I just haven't gotten to it yet. Currently replaying through Crystal, it's been 15 yrs+ since I played it and I'm having so much fun.
>>45922516>you are shitting on the newer games, and ranking them as D tiercorrect, I don't like the 3D games. not only are they bad pokemon games, I think they are legitimately just bad video games>because your favorite youtuber said it was badI don't watch pokemon youtubers, or youtube in general really>You ranked HGSS as C-tier when they were arguably the best games of all timeJohto is probably my least favorite region, and the pokemon selection and level scaling hold these games back a lot for me. if I had to play them again I would just play the originals because I like the music and aesthetic way more. gen 1 did the interconnected world with differing paths/gym orders better, and gen 3-5 were linear but with big expansive routes with branching paths, lots of trainers, secrets to find, etc.; something lacking in Johto. HGSS don't really offer me anything that other gens don't do batter>I highly doubt you tried themI played them as a sophomore in high school when they released, and again in 2018. both times I didn't see what all the hype was about. platinum is a better gen 4 experience, and gen 2 is a better Johto experience, so these games are pretty pointless to me.>It had the battle frontier just like platinumso why not just play platinum
>>45922661why do you like sun and moon so much? I want to give sun another chance cause I really want to like these games
>>45922444are they better than bw1?
>>45922708For me I really liked z-moves, regional forms, team skull, pelago, and the storyline with the ultra beasts. Also, the dex itself contains a lot of my favourite mons. The biggest downside of course is the cutscenes and lack of difficultly.
>>45922673>correct, I don't like the 3D games. not only are they bad pokemon games, I think they are legitimately just bad video gamesWhat kind of shit reasoning is this? You could've just given it more healthy, and understandable criticism, this is proof that you CLEARLY haven't played the games, and you most likely copied your opinion from your favorite creator, or some random autist on the internet.>I don't watch pokemon youtubers, or youtube in general reallyIf you say so, but I highly doubt it.>Johto is probably my least favorite region, and the pokemon selection and level scaling hold these games back a lot for me. if I had to play them again I would just play the originals because I like the music and aesthetic way more. gen 1 did the interconnected world with differing paths/gym orders better, and gen 3-5 were linear but with big expansive routes with branching paths, lots of trainers, secrets to find, etc.; something lacking in Johto. HGSS don't really offer me anything that other gens don't do batterThe level scaling may be bad, but are you going to ignore the really good post game, gym leaders that you can rebattle, the experience was wonderful with the addition of the pokewalker, the expansive dex, sinjoh ruins, etc. How can you not like it, when those remakes built off of the gen 2 games in every respect.>I played them as a sophomore in high school when they released, and again in 2018. both times I didn't see what all the hype was about. platinum is a better gen 4 experience, and gen 2 is a better Johto experience, so these games are pretty pointless to me.Even then, I would say you missed out on so much, since the remakes aren't just the same game, they are more than that since you add, and build off features, in every respect possible, which is the point of a remake.>so why not just play platinumBecause even platinum couldn't compare to the amount of features you missed out on like I said before. 2010 was a fine year.
>>45922773>What kind of shit reasoning is this? You could've just given it more healthy, and understandable criticism, this is proof that you CLEARLY haven't played the gamesI literally did not give any reasoning for why I don't like the 3D games in my previous reply, I was just clarifying that they weren't in D tier because my "favorite youtuber" told me so, I legitimately don't like them. you also type like a fucking autist so here's a friendly reminder that you need to be 18 to post here anon.
>>45922873>And you are a grammar nazi with shit reasoningYou say I act like the immature one?
>>45922294The level of autism required to make separate tiers for split versions of the same game is always impressive.
>>45922773mate, the 3d games are shit, no one likes them. get over it, its not a personal attack on you
>>45922294I fucking hate SM. It just makes me fuck ass mad. Sometimes for no reason whatsoever.
>>45922903I don't like the 3D games>gives no explicit reasons, simply states this opinion>schizo: your reasoning is shit, you CLEARLY haven't played them>mfw I didn't type any reasons but they are shit apparently>assumes everyone spends their time watching "poketubers" because that's what they do>unable to grasp concept that someone could form an opinion without a content creator telling them toyes I think you are the immature one
>>45922926They may be low quality, but at the very least give some good reasoning of why you hate them so you don't look like an autist, an old fag, or some underage child that copy pasted their opinion from their favorite youtuber.I don't like the 3D games because they chose graphics, over soulful characters, the fun features, and the quality of the game.Unlike you, I give my reasoning for my dissatisfaction of a game.
>>45922975>unable to grasp concept that someone could form an opinion without a content creator telling them toI can grasp that concept, it just when people don't give their reasoning I just assume they stole the opinion from the masses.
>>459229753D is gay
>>45922977>>45922926 and >>45922673 are different people
>>45922975>mfw I didn't type any reasons but they are shit apparentlyYou're right, that is what makes it shit.>schizo: your reasoning is shit, you CLEARLY haven't played themI assumed that because you wouldn't give much of a reason.>assumes everyone spends their time watching "poketubers" because that's what they doI LITERALLY did NOT say that, or even implied it. I think you are the schizo bud.
>>45923040you're grasping at straws here anon. just stop replying to him you're making yourself look like more of a blabbering retard every time
>>45923077You know what, you're right, I got better things to do. Also, I am no better than the retards I argue with if I constantly respond. See y'all later!
>>45922423>sapphire and ruby that high>hgss that low>muh new thing badyeah, I'm thinking cringe
>>45923093>I am no better than the retards I argue withtruly profound
>>45922715Depends. Do you care about story or game content? If the latter than absolutely
not pictures=didn't play>>45922393mega based>>45922423mega cringe>>45922508meh, indifferent, HGSS and bw2 being high up is good though>>45922520kinda indifferent but slightly tilting towards cringe side, hgss high up is based though, you have a lot of S tiers>>45922557decent list i suppose, everything is pretty based except you haven't finished usum>>45922615based>>45922633NPC opinion hgss is high, only good thing about list>>45922661based, even if you didn't like usum, you're still a certified alolabro>>45922683pretty based, nothing on this list makes me say "yeah, that's totally what I think!" but nothing really makes me recoil in disgust, good list.>>45922731hory shet>>45922932you make me fuck ass mad but then I see hgss where it's supposed to be and we're good, you need a better alola opinion though
>>45922393Please, play B2W2. PLEASE!
>>45923179The worst part about trying to finish usum is that I didn't enjoy alola much the first time, nor its characters, the available pokemon are good thoughI have no idea why I can't keep going with platinum, it's not any less fun and I like the region itself so far
I only ranked one of each version I didn't feel like doubling up since the ranks would have just been the same.
>>4592330199.9/100Almost perfect, except for Yellow. I hate that cashgrab like you wouldn't believe it
>>45923110>muh new thing bad>black and white in S tierwhat did he mean by this
>>45923179ultra sun 2 tiers above sun? why?
Out of all the generations, gen 4 introduced the most content with the greatest impact, which is why i rank it above the other gens.
>>45923357Only thing I don't agree with is Black and White being so low, they're one of my favourite games with my personal favourite storyHi Smoggie :)
>>45922773I hope this isn't bait I'm laughing my ass off
>>45922773>"you said they bad?! so you didn't olay them!"Shills are genuinely retarded
>>45922673>HGSS don't really offer me anything that other gens don't do batterIt offer the best gen IV games.
>>45922423>"what a terrible list OP">BW s tier
>>45923722True if johto wasn't a crap region
>>45923666>ultra moon above moon>black above black 2this seems contradictory, storyfags like black 1 and moon and gameplayfags like black 2 and ultra moon. I'd love to hear your explanation for these anon
>>45925135>Yellow that lowThe additional Rocket fights make Yellow objectively better. Those battles are what people think Blue's rival fights are. Fights that come out of fucking no where while your team is weak.
>>45925142I lived through Pokemania and yellow was for johnny come lately faggots and girls. Never lost that shit rep with me. That's also why I put the japanese games high since I started with Green. Maybe I need to replay and reevaluate Yellow.
>>45925178>moon in S>Ultra Sun in A
>>45925178>Ultra sun below moon>Platinum equal to diamond>Leafgreen and Sapphire remake that high>Havent played emeraldCongrats you have created the most unintentionally offensive pokemon tier list
The only reason ORAS is that high is because I find it comfy.
>>45925142yellow is for anime larpers
>>45922294I am sick and tired of people praising HGSS. The map and environments are ridiculously bland, and the pokemon selection is nonexistant
>>45925459>Selection non-existent>BW1 on S??
>>45925477You can get a variety of types very early
>>45922294Based on my own enjoyment. Not opinion.
>>45923344Not the same anon but I can assume why>Mount Lanakila has trainers on it now and more rooms>larger regional dex>move tutors>more side content like mantine surf and photo club>TRR is a better post game than catching the UBs in SM>all mega stones obtainable at the battle treeUSUM are better than SM in every way possible except story
>>45922294>>45922393>>45922423>>45922520>>45922633>>45922661>>45922731>>45922932>>45923179>>45923357>>45923402>>45923666>>45925486>>45925564>bw2 that low on this many tierlistsdid we get raided by reddit or something?
>>45925087As much as I like the story for those games I prioritize gameplay, and I enjoyed Black's gameplay a bit more than Black 2, no idea why, I guess I just like the fact that you're forced to use Unova mons and that it was first gen 5 games rather than sequels, so it was a fresh experience rather than a continuation
Also ranked within each tier, e.g. HGSS > Pt > B2W2Generally follows my gen preference:4 > 5 > 3 > 2 > 6 > 7 > 1 > 8SwSh with DLC would be somewhere in C tier I guess, although the whole of C tier is very poor.
>>45926794did you miss how the last tier is for games we haven't played?
>>45927125exactly, since when do we have people on this board who haven't played every game
>>45927185A lot of people have dropped the franchise around XY.
>>459272581. those boomers aren't on this board anymore as they have moved on2. we were talking about bw2, not anything post-xy
>>45926794hey man mine was in A tier
>>45922294>When and where did it all go south?Right after Gen V. X and Y marks the beginning of the downfall.>but you put X and Y higher than ORAS or SM!As the first games in 3D, they cannot be blamed for the fault they made, but they can be blamed if you look at the whole franchise. Hence, the reason they are lower than BWI know I'm right in saying that they're doing poorly now. No one can deny the dip in qualities ever since XY. The games are casualised to the extremes. Railroading and handholding all the time. It isn't as fun as it used to be.>You haven't played SWSH, Let's Go and USUM, how can you make a fair judgement?You're completely right, but.... gentlemen, if you think that means I have to lower myself to play gen VII and up, you are very much mistaken. I would rather put a bullet through my head.
>>45922294Admittedly a pretty zoom zoom take.
>>45925564>Based on my own enjoymentso it's your opinion
I'll confess that I haven't payed LGPE but the reason I put it in a separate tier from the haven't played tier is because with LGPE I feel as if I know enough about the game to have a strong opinion of it unlike the games in the haven't played tier where I feel as if I need to play them to have a proper opinion of them
>>45922773holy shit this must be bait, no one is this retarded surely
>>45928283No. Enjoyment is feeling. Opinion is objective decorum. Here is my unbiased opinion.
>>45922294just pretend Gen 8 is in D tier
get fucked faggots LGPE are fun
>>45930398>Opinion is objective decorum. Here is my unbiased opinion.opinions are not objective, nor are they unbiased. everyone has their own conscious or subconscious biases, thus yours (and everyone else's) opinion is subjectivealso your list is shit>3D games above D tier>Johto in S tier>insane gap between Yellow and Red/Blue when it's worse than bothbesides that I agree with your S and A tiers
>>45930398>sun/moon 3 tiers above ultra versionswhy?
>>45931575I would have written based if it wasn't for your shit taste.
>>45931642can't win em all
>>45922423>bw in S tiercringe and wrong
I own every game I've played except for Let's Go Eevee and Shield, become I bought them used and returned them after beating them. I didn't even want to bother putting them on my shelf.
>>45922294my 100% based and correct tier list
