The Unova games are worth playing. It’s Pokémon at its peak.
>>
>>48428509
Peak in what exactly?
It has worse difficulty than every game outside of gen 6, worse writing than gen 1 and 7, worse exploration than gen 1-3, worse graphics than gen 4 and 6-8, worse QoL than gen 6-8, worse online than gen 6-8, worse replayable singleplayer content than gen 3-4

I get really confused when people say gen 5 is the “peak” when it’s sort of just mediocre at everything. There isn’t a single reason to play it over another gen.

Yeah because even gen 8 is harder than gen 5.

…huh? I didn’t list gen 4 because gen 4 is incredibly linear compared to everything before it.

DP is total shit. I never played Platinum, but I can't imagine that changing a few minor details redeemed the whole Sinnoh games.

+ The 5G games are worth playing. And I'd say that even SM can be enjoyable after the millions cutscenes in the first island.

>>48428434
There isn't a reason go play Gen 4. Prove me wrong.
>>
>>48428739
Ah yes, facts don't matter compared to your feelings. Go back.
>>
>>48428521
I disagree with everything you said except 'worst graphics than gen 4". It was a graphical downgrade. But the scenario is still the best one so far and there is actually exploration, difficulty, replayability etc...

Please stop comparing a game with those who launched years after it. Obviously it has worse graphics and QoL than games on 3DS or Switch. But you can say it about every Pokemon game prior too. That's stupid.
>>
What makes RBY better than FRLG? Or is it just a matter of appreciating how the series started more?

>>48428791
>Please stop comparing a game with those who launched years after it
Why? If it really is the peak then it should be better than newer games.

OK, some of my answers are disingenuous but your complains are so stupid! Most of it could be applied to any RPG. Assassin's Creed Origins has caves, forests, an evil team etc... Is it a good Pokemon game?

Here's all I'm saying. I own all the games and have been replaying them over the last four-five years. And every single one I play I have fun in some way. But:
>I've yet to finish Platinum all the way through even though I enjoy it all the way up to the E4, it becomes a grind fest near the end and I've never felt incentive to continue past. The same applies for X&Y
>SwSh by far has the worst story and is tied with S&M for worst nu-mon designs. Even then, building perfect teams, den raiding, and the online experience isn't that bad and keeps me playing even now.
And then:
> HGSS has been replayed by me the most and hands down has the best replayability. It's just fun, the pacing is good, and the experience on the whole is the best imo Pokemon has to offer.
>ORAS brought back hoenn in a great way, between dexnavving and really broadening the dex, and the event legendaries given their own (albeit shitty) stories was a nice touch. The games are far from perfect but they are a lot of fun and have a lot of replayability.

So in my opinion, in terms of replayability, Pokemon platinum and X&Y fall short of the mark. B&W are different enough than their counterparts that replayability is there for a bit but it does trail off after a few. SwSh are good for two replays tops and after that you're better just grinding up those playthroughs than replaying.
And as for replaying with the most enjoyment, HGSS & ORAS offer a lot of fun features and side content to really keep the single player experience enjoyable for many runs. And though Alola is lacking on the whole, the Dex is huge and their are options that can keep enjoyable for more than a couple replays. But it's still not on standard as the first two.
For reference, my favorite games are SS & Emerald and I think Crystal set the stars are for Pokemon games since it's creation.

Those are the best games, but I still think you can get enjoyment out of BW2/ORAS/S&M, they are "worth" playing even if they aren't as good.
>>
>>48428434
Replace everything to the right of Emerald with Sun and Moon, and I agree.
>>
>>48428582
The old man glitch isn't in Yellow, which means that RB are superior, you retarded faggot.
>>
>>48428434
I liked Crystal more than GS back then, but you can't do the coin case glitch or cloning as easily in Crystal.

RBY has glitches, and FRLG has all the dumb Gen 3 mechanics that weigh the game down.

Ah yes, the good old days of the weather spams

>Better graphics
The hideous pixelated messes that were the gen 5 games were nowhere near good graphics, let alone better.

The hand-holding circle of a region was good explorin.

Gen 5 was a low point for the franchise until SwShit dropped the bar even lower ngl
>>
>>48431248
The true Pokemon experience is Pokemania.
>>
>>48431285
Ah yes, the good old days of the mega kangaskhan

The hideous 3D messes that were the gen 6 game (no sequel or third version) were nowhere near good graphics, let alone better.

The remakes are worse than the originals. There's no reason to play them when you can easily access Gens 1 and 2 on 3DS virtual console.

There is value to playing G/S over C or HG/SS.
B/W and B2/W2 are worth playing as well because they were the only time GF tried to tell a more traditional JRPG story and also had difficulty options and some other novel features.

I agree that R/S, D/P, X/Y, SuMo and SwSh are not peak Pokemon but I don't know if I'd say they are all 'not worth playing'. Vanilla R/S and D/P for sure, but there are elements of X/Y and SuMo that are interesting enough that I didn't feel upset that I spent time on them. I haven't played SwSh and have no interest in doing so.

There really is not, Crystal is flat out better than GS.

Nope, the mons locations in the wild in Crystal are way worse than GS
>>
>>48431510
>Remakes worse than the originals.
Objectively false.
FR/LG has more content, is less buggy, visually superior, has some kind of a post game and battles are nowhere near as broken with a new type chart and improvements to moves with shit like wrap not being as busted as it was.
HGSS is simply Crystal with much more shit to do and looks better.

You can nostalgiafag all you like but the only remake (so far)that was worse than the gen it was remade from is ORAS since it's a worse emerald that just looks pretty.

There are no gamebreaking bugs that you can unintentionally activate in Gen 1, unlike FRLG where your roaming legendary can delete itself by using Roar.
>barely functional
Confirmed for having never played the game.
>>48431699
>visually superior
lolno all the Gen 3 games looked and sounded like shit. Gens 1 and 2 were 8 bit games, but they had charm.
>hurr nostalgiafag
In that case you are just nostalgiafagging for Gen 3 when LGPE are objectively superior.
