Gen 4 was idiotic because for some reason they decided we needed MORE psychic legendaries. Gen 3 was a step down from one and two as well and went with quantity over quality.

At least III made sense and the concepts were good.

IV is the deeper end.

I like having lots of legendaries to track down :(

The quest to catch all the legendaries is one of the most fun parts of the games for me.

Not when a good bit of them are event exclusive, missed wifi events, or require more games.

Hopefully they'll exspand on what they did for Bw2 by just putting them all in somewhere lol.

Ive been playing these games since day one and i think gen v has some of the best pokemon designs. That said, there are definitely too many legendary pokemon and the concept has really taken a nose dive since gen iii. Hoping to see very few legends this time around.

I'd like it more if they had more of a bigger and better storyline/quest to go through with your pokémon following you, rather than just dumping them in a "special" cave. The extravagant entrances they have can stay of course.

The storyline needs a shake up as much as the graphics did. Gen V was a step in the right direction for me, but still had Trainer vs Team Blah throughout.

Raquaza is at least three times better than Groudon.
Heck yes. Rayquaza is the boss. (Literally if you count Subspace Emissary)

This game is going to look amazing in autostereoscopic 3D.

Btw, is it true we've received type confirmations for the starters? What about the legendaries?

I agree with the sentiment about there being too many legendaries. They don't feel "legendary" anymore.

They felt really mysterious and powerful back when they were so few and elusive, aka Mew/Mewtwo and Ho-Oh/Lugia.

I would too, but I'm not going to be the guy to say "if you don't do this perfectly, just get rid of it". I'd rather have that content in the game, even if executed imperfectly.

Moreover, I think they can still preserve the mystique surrounding certain legendaries by tying them into the plot, which they are doing now. The rest can be filler, I don't mind, it's still something to do.

Oh, absolutely. But I'm just talking about something even as simple as information gathering to find where the heck they are. Anything.

Heck, they have Events, just do them longer and more often, but not (always) via WiFi and such.
Would make the game a hell of a lot more engrossing. =)

And Gen V surprised me by having the villain continue after the game had "finished".

... Did you guys know Pokémon evolutionary biology and taxonomy is a thing people do?

It's like I've discovered a whole new world of Pokémon nerdiness.

And it is glorious.
This is some "Zelda Timeline"-esque malarkey right here.

How can you not love lines like this:

The Grass-type Pokémon, which spurred furious debate over whether they should be considered Plants or Animals, are shown to be a monophyletic group that evolved from a clade of Normal-type quadrupeds; the half-plant, half-reptile Venusaur appears as the transitional species between these two stages.

It's not even the fun kind of fanfiction. :<
Just to make sure, are we talking "You Are The Demons" fanfiction or "50 Shades of Grey" fanfiction...?

Terrestrial life arose independently three times, once
with the evolution of the monophyletic Ice types (starting with
the semiaquatic Dewgong), and once with the evolution of a
major clade of Flying types (starting with the seabird Pelipper).
;)

&#8220;No! I must kill the Mewtwo&#8221; he shouted
The radio said &#8220;No, XaosWolf. You are the Mewtwo&#8221;
And then XaosWolf was a Mewtwo.
This sounds like wierd furry porn.
As opposed to normal furry porn?


I loled.

I'm reading this in a breathy voice with extra emphasis on the scientific terms.

I was in the middle of typing that exact thing. =D


Oh lord. I can't stop laughing. As soon as I saw your avatar I lost it.

Good god what did I- You know what, I don't even want to know.

For anyone who might be interested, I've got the following that I can dupe and send off to Gen IV games:

Toys 'R' Us Fateful Encouner Arceus (unlocks Sinjoh Ruins in HG/SS)
Toys 'R' Us Fateful Encouner Regigigas (unlocks the Regi trio in Platinum)
Toys 'R' Us Fateful Encounter Shaymin (unlocks the Gracidea in Platinum and HG/SS)
2010 Wifi Mew (A couple, don't know what their stats are)
2010 Gamestop Jirachi (likewise)
"Pikachu-Colored" Pichu (unlocks Spiky-eared Pichu in HG/SS and is the worst thing ever)

I may have shiny Raikou, Suicune and Entei trio and fateful encounter Celebi sitting around somewhere, but I'm not too sure about those. Celebi unlocks a short event in HG/SS and all of them can be transferred over to B/W early to unlock Zorua or Zoroark. Just PM me if you're interested and we can set things up.
