It's been a while, but since the announcement of USUM has happened, I've been thinking about you /vp/.
I've been thinking about how pitiful this safespace of a board is with it's contrarian-like mindset. So let's get this started, shall we?

Gen 5, the gen that single handedly almost killed the franchise and had a lot of the games core fans thinking of abandoning this sinking ship of a series due to the clear decline in quality.

Let's take a look at the long list of objective facts that this gen did wrong.

>Absolute dog shit dex filled to the brim with deviant art tier juvenile designs
When you have one of the largest new dexes and I can't even put together a team of 6 (six) pokemon that I like, then you know there's a massive problem.
This dex was made up of abominations, and I'm not even talking about the big offenders like garbodor and vanilluxe, I'm talking literally almost everything. There's maybe 4-5 good lines in this joke of a dex which is just laughable.

>Bland and forgettable region
>Trash team with a ridiculously bad looking uniform and an equally ridiculously bad reason for existing
>Toddler tier story
>Non existent difficulty (always makes me kek when the underage majority of this board says they had trouble with these games literally because these were the first games you millenial fuccbois grew up with)

Positives about Gen V -
Some great music
The very few pokemon from this gen I do like are pure kino.

And that's all.

It brings a smile to my face whenever I come here and see the sperging out and tears about how gamefreak doesn't give the slightest shit about you or your shitty gen considering they're doing their absolute best to distance the new games from them which is without a doubt the correct move.
Everywhere other than here (and I really do mean EVERYWHERE) rates gen 5 as the absolute bottom of the barrel worst games in the series. They scored shit, they sold shit, they are shit.

USUM can't come soon enough. Feels good to enjoy games :)

>>34163536
How did Gen V almost kill the franchise? Black and White sold better than Ruby and Sapphire, and B2W2 sold better than every other third version that came before, besides maybe Yellow.
>>
>>34163611
>Laughing My Ass Offing at you
>>
>>34163536
gen 5 was when they started removing good features from previous games instead of building upon them

HGSS were the best games in the series
in fact, if we could have HGSS with Gen V's battle system, backsprites that aren't fugly and 60fps they'd be absolutely insurmountable games.

Fuck bw. Competitive started to go to shit with this gen
>>
This is mostly just opinions and differences in taste. Personally i didnt like gen 5, because most of the way okemon felt like lazy rehashes of old gen 1and 2 mons. I also think its stupid that people say gen 5 is good because it “forces you to use new mons”, but then BW2 comes along and everyone praises it for the wider selection of pokemon. The PWT was meh, it didnt really interest me the way the battle frontier did. Thats just my opinion though, and i can see why people might think differently.

Even if you correct the chart, it still doesn't change the fact that Gen V is the lowest lowest point in the series, sales-wise.
>>
>>34163716
I was talking about the gross. Black and White also received perfect scores from Famitsu (when admittedly it didn't deserve them). So it's not like they sold "shit" and it's not like they scored "shit", and they came nowhere close to "killing" one of the biggest media franchises in the world, if not the biggest.

That's another thing to bring up. BW introduce two new battle systems with each one being more prevalent in one of the two games.

That's how you evaluate a game objectively. As for meta changes, you can catalogue them all, but it's not very important for judging them as games.

It's kind of a wash for me

Gen 5 probably had the most compelling pokemon story to date, but that's not saying much when it comes to pokemon. Gen 6 had a pretty forgettable story, but it's supposed to be about the journey of traveling a land and growing as a person, which I think it adequately accomplishes.

Design wise, Gen 5 is easily the most mixed bag IMO. There are plenty of great designs, but they're also the ones that have the most that don't feel like pokemon if that makes sense. Gen 6 I think clearly wins the design comparison. Less mons, but nearly all of them are slam dunks IMO. Also only having 6 legendaries vs 13 is a bonus for me.

Map wise, both regions are giant ass circles, but I think Kalos pound for pound is probably the most beautiful region in the series design wise. Unova has a lot of great ideas and towns in it, like Nacrene City and Opelucid City, but it's also got a lot of bland cities IMO, like Driftveil. Every city in Kalos has at least one memorable landmarks I enjoy spending time around.

Difficulty wise, Gen 5 wins, but it also dumbed down the franchise a lot. 4 Mons and no fight against the Champion until the post game. B2W2 are great, but also need the context of the first games. Cheren and Hugh are far better rivals than Tierno, Trevor, Shauna, and the other MC. Diantha and Iris are kinda on the same level for me. Alder is one of the best characters as a Champion, but he's also probably the easiest champion. the E4 are also kind of even. Drasna, Malva, and Siebold are awesome, but so are Shauntal, Marshall, and Grimsley. I think Unova has more memorable gym leaders, if only by virtue of having so many.

I think I liked gen 6 better because I loved Mega Evolutions, Fairy Types, character customization, and the new pokemon more than I liked the Unova pokemon and White Tree/PWT. I also kind of dock Gen 5 points because B/W are kind of boring post game, and B2/W2 have just about all the stuff that makes Gen 5 worthwhile.

The Frontier isn't a meme. It's a beloved feature that hasn't been around for nearly a decade, and people are (rightfully) disappointed when a new game comes out (particularly if it's a third "complete" version) and inevitably there's no Frontier or Frontier equivalent.

Quick question, is gen 6 including ORAS?
>>
>>34171998
Because Gen 6 only has 2 games vs Gen 5's 4.
Throw in ORAS for a fair comparison if you'd like.
>>
>>34172039
He didnt include it
XY 16.20
ORAS 13.85
That makes 6 gen 30.05 million copies sold

Unovabortions just can't win.
Ever.

>save the series
pokemon is a series that has never needed to be saved in terms of sales, the games are made on small budgets and time constraints and sell stupid amounts in addition to being the most heavily marketed franchise to ever come out of video games

>With Z, XY was sure to outsell.
Alright, I'll play along.
Let's assume for a second that X and Y were bought in equal quantities. Each got 8.1
In order for X and Y to surpass gen 5, Z would have had to sell the same number as the first version.
Now, here's a quick wrench. Third versions have three markets. There are "I bought both/all three", there are "I held out" and there are "So, Platinum is BETTER than Pearl?" guys. The Hold Out crowd doesn't get added here, because they all bought X and Y when they learned Z wasn't happening. What's more, the "all 3" crowd means that every 1 sale of both X and Y doesn't translate to 2 Z sales.
So what we need is 1 sale for every two sales of X and Y under these conditions. We need 50% of the sales of X and Y to reach our goal.

So here's the problem. No third version has EVER broken the 50% limit, except, wait for it, generation 5. Why this is, I cannot say, though I have a hunch that BW2 continuing the narrative played a part. And remember, X and Y's sales are likely marginally higher than they would have been if Z did release, because some Z hold-outs bought X and Y.

Following the pattern, with all of the information at our disposal, it is unlikely that Z would have made gen 6 surpass gen 5, unless Z came in a solid gold box for the same low price of 40 dollaridoos.

So let me get this straight. Gen 6 is getting an extra crutch of sales from remakes that gen 5 didn't have?
>>
>>34163536
The amount of whinning and reaching in this is amazing, it looks like a 13 years old made it.
>>
someone post the second gen one
>>
>>34163645

This. I didn't like B/W and saw a lot of my Pokémon playing friends drop off at that point, but BW2 got me back. I remember thinking it was unusual that a Pokémon game would come out that I didn't like, but then I remembered I wasn't a big fan of Gen 3 and decided it was some kind of 'every other gen' rule and looked forward to Gen 6. When X/Y arrived I made excuses that it was the first 3D game so they needed to adjust.

Then there was ORAS which I didn't like but decided it was because I didn't like Gen 3 and looked forward to Gen 8.

Then there was S/M which I couldn't even finish, but remembered BW2 and looked forward to USUM.

Now here I am with a steelbook preorder for Ultra Sun knowing I'm going to be disappointed again. Look to the future and what do you see? Ohmori and Masuda telling us not to get our hopes up for Pokémon Switch because it's a difficult transition for them. I appreciate their honesty but when IS a good Pokémon game going to come out? I still love the franchise, I even love the core gameplay, but it's not delivering. I never thought I'd miss X/Y, but will I be saying I miss S/M in 2019?

Those are not reasonable responses, those are the responses to legitimate criticism from GF sycophants.

>>34168232
What feature was removed in gen 2?
>>
>>34163587
If Gen 5 still had its online features available then perhaps revisiting it might change my opinion on the games. As it is, it's barely worth putting effort into anything pre-gen6. Play them for story, then abandon and bring your mons over if you can be bothered sitting through the shit transfer minigames.
