Yeah, I have to agree, Dialga and Palkia looked rigid as hell. Like statues or something. Even their animated Pokedex 3D Pro models strain to move.

I like them -- really, I like all Pokemon -- but these new fellas look a lot more natural and dynamic. You can picture Yveltal flying, Xerneas galloping, etc.

Haha, actually, we are not too dissimilar here. Bulbasaur, Cyndaquil, Treecko, Turtwig, and Oshawott for me.

I don't like Oshawott though, I dealt with it for awhile because I love Samurott :P

Don't over-think it. Just pronounce the "y" like the letter "e," and then say "vel - tall."

Really quick-like. Emphasis on "vel."

Other than a few select pokemon there wasn't much about gen4 that I enjoyed more than what the other games could provide.

I think the best part was the improved strategy of the game and new moves, but that was ruined with the slow pacing. HGSS redeemed so if thats considered 4th gen too then I love that slice of it.

There are lots of 'em. I only know of a few PokeGAF people who dislike them... Or maybe only one person.

I'm pretty sure Gen IV is tiggerkiddos favorite, but I'm not 100%. Something about it makes it pretty special to me.

Well, most people don't hate G4, since anytime a new person wants to play, Platinum and HGSS are always included, if not BW/2.

I think you're looking for "Diamond and Pearl likers"

Do they really have to move, being god-like entities that have the power to control space and time? lol

Hmm, too much overlap for us to be Pokemon rivals.

Ah, Gen IV -- the Gen of Purple.

Despite the limited color palette, I quite liked a number of Pokemon introduced there, including the three starter evos, Staraptor, Drapion, Hippowdon (only recently, when I realized his feet are hydraulic shocks), and all of the new evolutions to past Pokemon.

Overall? Gen4 was the best since G/S/C.

I stopped playing Gen5 because there were (FAR) more pokemon I disliked than the ones I did like. And the ones I DID like were either legendaries (therefore unusable for battling with friends) or were just reskins of similar existing pokemon I felt were better. 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.

And Gen IV brought us Platinum and HG/SS so I can't hate on it. DP were really boring games though.

Because pre-Gen V has way too many Pokemon with bad stats. One of the best things about Gen V is that most of the new Pokemon have stats that aren't terrible.

Man. I was a gigantic fan of Gen 1 and 2, but then I became one of those lame-o's who thought the series took a nosedive. I've dabbled in every gen afterward, but I haven't caught the itch again

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

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.

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.

Gen IV is awesome. I mean... D/P was kind of tooooo slow but Platinum was amazing. One of the best Pokemon games, honestly. HGSS (even though thats Gen 4)/GSC beats it though.
