I think you're looking for "Diamond and Pearl likers"
No, I mean DPP all together. They are the same games after all, just that Generation. I know HGSS is considered a Gen IV game and I make the mistake often that it is considered one, but I don't mean HGSS. Out of all the Gens I've seen on NeoGAF, the one that gets the most hate is Gen IV, it also gets the least amount of praise. It's crazy too cause I thought it was pretty good, but alas opinions. I guess people are too busy talking about RBY, GSC, and BW.

Scollipede felt like a washed up Drapion to me.
Gen4 also provided an ample amount of evolutions to pokemon that needed them. Something every Gen should do and the main reason I dislike Gen3 and Gen5.
I agree, I actually didn't care for most of the Gen V Pokemon and it really killed a lot of my interest just based on that. Whoever designed them either designed them in a different way, or it was someone new that had a new style that I'm just not fond of. When I look a lot of the designs it just doesn't feel like 'Pokemon' to me, and I guess I lose my connection to it with that. I also felt kinda let down after Gen IV since the world was so big and had a lot of exploration, but then they kinda chopped that away for Gen V.

but boy, let me tell you, that itch is back. I don't know if it's the superb design of the new pokes or the idea that this is a true shakeup, but I'm right back on board the Pokemon train
It's the power of 3D, it did it for me too.
