you know what B/W was? refreshing. It was something new. First region based on something outside of Japan, first region since Kanto to have ONLY new Pokemon. No Zubat/Abra/Machop/Geodude/Magikarp shit. And it at least TRIED at a unique antagonist story, and the end of the game with catching the legendary and facing down the boss of Team Plasma rather than the champion was cool. Just new stuff. It was a fun experience playing it for the first time. Not everyone may have liked it, but at least it was something different.
BW2 to some degree as well. Instead of doing a shitty third "Grey" version to screw over everyone who bought B/W they did sequels to augment the story instead. On top of that there's a bunch of interesting post-game stuff. The black/white dungeon was actually decently challenging.
ORAS is the opposite of that. Just rehashed shit with not enough replayable content to make up for it.
>>24600289 >horrendous level curve >Wild Pokemon and trainers in Kanto are underleveled as fuck True but it's an issue that's oftentimes exaggerated. >Can't find Johto Pokemon in Johto Because Game Freak had to be cautious as to not kill the legacy of Red and Green so abruptly after its tremendous success. >Morty doesn't use a Misdreavus ...and? >No postgame Ironic shitposting is still shitposting.
>>24600262 >better story then all main series games. >pushed limits to the DS to the max >amazing sprites >the best pokemon roster >got rid of the final aged mechanic, tm's being only able to be used once >even if you don't think they are the best games of the franchise, leagues better then gen 6, gen 2, and gen 1. gen 6 was awful, gen 1 and 2 are old.
gen 1 = something new gen 2 = something new, built on top of gen 1's story, let me visit gen 1 areas RS = something new FRLG = good post-game areas, which ORAS doesn't even have E = had battle frontier for tons of replayability DP = something new Platinum = I don't care for this as much but it's still better than ORAS HGSS = everything HGSS should have been XY = something new ORAS = rehashed shit that couldn't even keep in one of the best features from the region
>>24600262 Gen5 fags once again false flagging themselves in order to bitch about the genwunner boogie man. Not everyone who hates gen5 are genwunners. The exp system and story were absolute trash. Don't say it was harder, either. It was just t-wave: the playthrough.
>>24600262 I was just playing white for the first time and last week all my savestates got corrupted. Where can I download a save that has all 8 badges but hasn't touch the E4 yet? All I can find are completed games and I just want to finish the rest of the story for myself.
That'd be D/P and R/S. Emerald and Platinum took almost everything that was wrong with those games and fixed it. HG/SS did the same for Gen II but that added a lot of new features still relevant today so I knock it too much.
>>24600571 >Kanto is not postgame. It's the second half of the game. No. It's the post game, you've finished the main game and become the champion. That's it for the main story. Everything after is postgame.
Not that it helps either way because the Johto games are mediocre either way. HGSS only stands out just above GSC because it has the updated mechanics aside from that its the same shitty rehashed game with the exact same flaws. At the very least the other remakes tried to fix the bigger flaws HGSS just covered it up with shit like following pokemon.
I don't see how anyone can play through BW2 and find them the worst in the series. The only possible reason I can think of is that they didn't like BW and decided that BW2 was exactly the same. Which they obviously aren't.
I mean, it has the perfect level curve, a great regional dex that isn't too bloated (Kalos), has the best postgame, good music. It has a decent region with low dependencies on HMs. I mean, if Platinum didn't exist, BW2 would be the best games off all.
There are a number of uneeded interruptions and blocked off areas though, I'll give you that, but I don't think they matter too much when you look at the positives. Challenge mode was terribly implemented, but it makes for some pumped up battles in the post-game. Taking on Cynthia with a team straight out of E4 and winning was satisfying.
>>24601714 Judging from the inital post, the poster is talking about Whitney or maybe Bugsy. If it's Whitney and you're even remotely suggesting that you need to grind, then you're fucking retarded.
>>24603631 HGSS did not fix gen II flaws. They are very visible in the game. Gen II added the neat stuff, that's why it was good, not because of the terrible pacing and weak region.
>>24601124 >>24601177 >>24601668 I'd agree with you people if it wasn't for the fact that it's really annoying to add new Pokemon to a team after the 4th gym. Lake of Rage for example, you'd visit it when you have Pokemon around level 30, so that Red Gyarados doesn't murder you. But then the wild Pokemon there are at most level 19, so I hope you've got patience if you wanna add a girafarig to your main roster cause its gonna take a long while for it to catch up.
>>24600262 >Physical/Special split >reusable TMs >actual focus on the new region and its Pokemon Gen II is, was, and ever shall be the worst Pokemon games for a wide variety of reasons. >>24601895 X and Y with no exp share, O-powers, or grinding spot abuse, at least in my opinion. Kalos has a harsh level curve and deceptively good NPCs if given a turn to act. Of course, if you do use all the tools that Gen VI gives you then X and Y are also the easiest games in the series.
>>24604932 It was more about having those things than introducing them, sorry. Should've been clearer. Any game where Machamp's Fire Punch is stronger than Alakazam's would need to be spectacularly terrible otherwise to compete for worst in the series.
