How come you didnt like Red/Blue?
I don't want to keep bothering Wright with Pokemon talk so I'll respond here to what you said below:
From what you've said it seems Sun and Moon did not improve on any of the problems I had with X/Y, except for doing away with Mega Evolution in favor of Z-moves. Mega Evolution was exceedingly stupid, so that's nice to hear.
Until GameFreak decides to make a challenging, engrossing, and story-driven Pokemon again, I'm quite uninterested, sadly.
Story driven maybe but I have a feeling the next Pokemon game which will come out on Switch wont have such a big userbase (online wise at least) compared to previous gens mainly because of the paid subscription (blurgh).
I like Mega evolution, Z moves are okay though.
And if what you are assuming is right about the online aspect of the next Pokemon, one would logically assume a larger focus on main-game and story should happen.
That reminds me, when are you changing your avatar?
On top of that, the story has gone the other way from where Black and White was ramping up the drama of it all.
However, I have yet to play Sun and Moon so they may have fixed some of that. But the demo for it was also quite a snooze fest.
Pokemon Blue (GBC): 89
Pokemon Yellow (GBC): 91
Pokemon Ruby (GBA): 93
Pokemon Emerald (GBA): 94
Pokemon White (NDS): 98
Pokemon White 2 (NDS): 93
Pokemon X (3DS): 94
Pokemon Sun (3DS): 93
Pokemon Omega Ruby (3DS): 96
Is the story at least better though? Back to B/W quality at all?
3rd gen is still my fav despite me not enjoying the 3rd gen remakes as much as the OG 3rd gen.
Score wise its higher but I enjoyed OG 3rd gen more than Remakes.
Sun and Moon's story is okay, its nothing special imo. The game feels a lot shorter and way too easy especially considering majority of the trainers you face have 1-2 pokemon and the "Leaders" have 3-4 at max.
I cant even remember a trainer I faced that had 6 pokemon full.
The story's okay overall, its not as good as B/W part 1 but way better than B/W part 2's story.
Gonna be playing 2nd gen later this year - Crystal version though. Been almost 15 years since I last played it.
+No more Gym battles, now Island Trials which make you do side quest events such as finding items, solving puzzles or fighting certain battles
+Region is split into 4 islands with a Hawaiian theme
+Some first gen pokemon have new forms with new typing
+Pokedex now Rotom-Pokedex which talks with you and splits entries into 4 categories (for each island) and the entire region
+QR Scanner allows players to scan in data of pokemon that they have not caught
+New battle type called Battle Royal where it allows you to do a 4 way free for all battle
+Z-Moves bring a new way in battling allowing you to do special moves in a cinematic cutscene, this replaces mega evolution
+Poke-rides are a new feature which allow you to use certain pokemon to traverse the region, this makes surf, flying, strength obsolete as HMs (there are no more HMs)
+Hyper training returns
+Festival Plaza allows players to see other players and interact with them for battle or trade, they can access the GTS here as well. Festival coins can be obtained here by interacting with characters which can be used to increase the rank of your festival plaza
+Poke Pelago is a new feature which allows you to create your own island to have your PC stored pokemon to find items, discover wild pokemon and to even raise levels and stats.
+81 new pokemon
-No more gyms (replaced with Island challenges)
-No HM moves/field moves
-FPS gets lowered in horde battles
-No National Pokedex
-Post game is weak in game wise but thanks to Festival Plaza, replay value can still be increased with other players through trading/battling
Whoa, so it seems after all these years you still are hostile to social media.
Also, there isn't much now that the Zelda wave is gone.
That's true. The only excitement I get now is from whenever new Switch sales come in.
(While being at the US, I noticed many Americans look down upon Facebook, which seems to be the complete opposite for foreigners or minorities, which use it far more.)
Same with WhatsApp.
Instagram and Snapchat are much more interesting and much less "check out this thing your friend liked," "look at all these random family photos," "buy this thing based off the statistics we have on you."
In Snapchat, it's all about showing stuff people don't care about.
"Oh, look at my food." "Oh, look at my drunk video that I just want on the internet for 24 hours." "Look at my selfies and my dog ears".

Switch first month was EXTREMELY impressive, period. And considering it is still sold out in most parts of the world now almost two months in that makes it even more impressive....
Poor Amazon. Just can't keep up with overwhelming demand. Hard times....
If true, another missed opportunity for the Switch....
