Not a genwunner, but it does seem like a weird move.

If they wanted to be so stingy with making an OVA series, they should've chosen something of a smaller scale. Condensing the retelling of the entire Gen 1 saga in four episodes of snippets is not fucking okay. They can shit out 20 fucking seasons and hundreds if not thousands of Pokemon episodes so there is no excuse.

I'd be much more satisfied if it was absolute shit through and through or completely something else. But no, the parts of it that were good were fucking incredible, yet it's gimped to 4 episodes with all these flaws and missed opportunities and they'll probably never take another shot at it ever again. I am fucking furious.

Well it goes too far with aspects such as healthbars existing in-universe. Having them around as part of the fourth wall would've been much more suitable than them existing on the gym screens.
>>
>>102198457
There are tons of other places where showing off mega evolutions would be much more suitable. In the main anime. In a movie. In a different OVA focused on Gen VI. Shoehorning it in a Gen I throwback is far less suitable than the aforementioned choices.

>>102198445
For me it was a plus.

Well it already happened in the movie, and I heard that right now in the anime Charizard is actually with Ash again so that most likely means the anime is going to feature the Y form. But that that was the whole point, to appeal to older fans who remember the older games and put something from the new game in it so that it would make them interested and cause a "Oh, what's this? Better buy the game and find out" reaction. It's all clear and makes sense(sort of) even if people don't like that.

I dislike RSE because I never liked the trumpets since the beginning, there was no hype whatsoever prior its release (or its hype was shit compared to GSC's hype), the anime started to went full pants on head retarded (no Misty? no Gary? team reset?) and many mechanics from the older games worsened or were cut off completely.

There are fan-made tools that made it possible to transfer old Pokemon to newer games you know. The thing is, Gamefreak had the budget and knowledge on their own programming to do this back in the day, and they didn't.

I'm still pissed you have to do retarded minigames to transfer Pokemon from Gen III to Gen IV, IV to V or V to VI but you can't transfer backwards, not to mention the minigames themselves are unnecessary and stupid.

>>102199659

Could work. First gen Fire Spin was broken and just stunlockaed the opponent for a bunch of turns, and then you could do it over and over again until you're out of PP. And I'm pretty sure Charizard is faster than Blastoise.

That or plain ol' grinding. Always works.

I'd watch the shit of anime about Giovani with Rhyhorn wrecking everything.

>>102200052
Oh okay, thank you for explaining, But you should realize you didn't really give a reason as to why you didn't like RSE, not to mention you proceed to jump on BW and XY without giving any reasons at all. The anime being stupid(btw how long did it take you to realize that?) has nothing to do with the games, same with hype, it means nothing, you can hype a bad game and a good game may receive very little hype. And what mechanics have worsened or were cut off? Because pretty much everything gor improved/new things were added. I don't care if I just took a bait.
Also, 1994

Red catching all 150 pokemon should have been a positive thing, but I think it was actually negative
He was always using different pokemon. The only pokemon he always kept with him was charizard, so it was the only pokemon the viewers cared about.

The internal clock on the games have got worse since GSC, stop kidding yourself. I don't quite remember if In DPPt pokemon encounters change according to the time of the day, but in RSE it obviously didn't and neither did in BW. I don't know about XY but I'm assuming it doesn't either because Gamefreak knows new fans will eat any piece of shit game they release under the label of Pokemon. They could even make a key ring into a Pokemon and people would still eat that shit up.

Oh yeah, also berry mechanics got fucked over. Now you are the only person in the planet who plants berries and that just makes it annoying as hell. In gen 2 you just had to pick your berries each days and in based HG SS you can plant and take care of them wherever you want because of the berry pouch of whatever its called. Gen 3 and 4 are a hassle and I think in the newer games you have to download them from the internet or some shit. Whoever thought that was a good idea deserves a good punch in the face.
>>
>>102200372
Really reminds me of my old Blue playthrough. I basically soloed the game with the starter, with the other 'mons acting as extra lives to my horribly overleveled Blastoise (he finally goes down, switch to other mon, use revive, other mon dies, go back to Blastoise). It actually worked disturbingly well, breaking through typings with raw power (all those revives were really expensive, though).

It should have been longer. I didn't like that half of the stuff that happened was blown over in a narration.

you forgot the best adventure in the series. Traveling back to Kanto and fighting Red sounds like some ridiculous playground myth. But NOPE YOUR ENDGAME IS A WHOLE NEW GAME.

It's also got my favorite town theme:

And as far as the anime goes, it still felt like Ash was progressing towards something. The Orange Islands were this wild frontier leading up to Gold and Silver. Ash hasn't been reset for the millionth time (seriously, he keeps abandoning everyone and forgetting basic type advantages. This guy was offered the title of Frontier Brain for fuck's sake).

Gen 6 isn't so bad though, as far as the game is concerned. Worldwide launch meant there was *some* mystery for awhile, and the customization means you're finally playing as *you* in the game, which is cool.

I really liked, but too fucking short

I loved how the wild pokemon actually got weaker and weaker the closer you got to Pallet Town. That was a nice touch.

The GS ball was part of the celebi arc plot that got reduced to a shitty rushed movie.

This. Series should have ditched Ash at the end of Johto and switched to a new set of protagonists. Like, have it end with him finally meeting Ho-oh (not that shitty 2000 movie) and cap it off there. Then have the new protagonists bump into Ash and have a two-parter or something.

The games need better post-game content, though. The badges and shit is really a formality; I liked wandering the Sevi Islands and going back to Kanto and shit, but D/P didn't have a whole lot, and X/Y barely had anything. Never bothered with Gen 5 but it doesn't seem like it has much either.

Half the fun of Pokemon is the mystery of it all, really.

I'll admit despite being 5 years old, I was mad, but that's why they made the Mewtwo returns special.

>>102203108
The palettes in Kanto, including the grass, were different compared to Johto.

Another detail most people ignore is how the Johto wild pokemon theme is different from day to night

Nigga what, the third movie is great.
