Forums - Nintendo Discussion - My Top 10 reasons I hate the new Pokemon.

For about the past 5 or 6 years or so, Pokemon has hit rock bottom. Their last masterpeice was Heartgold and Soul Silver, after that, I am displeased with pokemon now. Gens 1-4 were fantastic, but what te hell happened?

This is just my opinion, so please correct me if you feel to do so.

10.) Rivals: Back in the day, it was great to have a rival to go head to head, and it felt great after beating them, but now it seems like just friendly battles that just are unmotivated and just there to be there. This is more of a minor complaint, but I'll continue

9.) Easy: This is self explanatory, it just got too easy.

8.) Fairy type: This was just uneccessary, it was just awful. Terrible idea, Game Freak, Terrible idea.

7.) Spoon-feeding everything: THis is especially in X/Y where everything freaking everywhere is just handed to you like a toddler. It made it that I didn't get toenjoy getting stuff, MYSELF.

6. Air battles: This just annoys me because it has HARDLY ANY USE. What was the point in the first place?

5. Wonder Trade: Have fun getting pokemon yourself? Well, now you can just get all the shiny action replay hacked pokemon you want if you get lucky.  Great idea, Nintendo....

4. Rushed: X/Y was only made in a couple years, which is why there is nothing to do after you beat it. Sad but true.

3. Action Replay: What happened to being fair, now it is just a few button taps away from having every legendary ever. WOW....

2. Fanbase: NO MATTER WHAT the Pokemon company decides to do, fanboys will defend and praise its name, just eagerly loving whatever is thrown at them. Not everybody is like this, but sometimes people are just pathetic in the fanbase, which annoys me.

10) Agree, I also hate the fact that the rivals are your friends..I liked it when your rival was a douche
9) 1000% agree
8) Don't care
7) This goes with the game being too easy, but I agree
6) Don't care
5) This is optional so really no point in complaining about it
4) Didn't tackle the after game of X/Y so I really don't know about this
3) ???? don't really know what you are talking about here
2) How does this affects a game being good or bad?
1) As long as your opponent also uses a Mega evolution, it balances things out. Also if you are a complete noob, someone without a Mega can still easily beat you 

Aside from #10 and #9, this a pointless rant.



Nintendo and PC gamer

I laugh when people complain that new Pokemon games are too easy. Exactly how difficult do you think gen 1 or 2 was?

How does Action Replay and the Pokemon fanbase have anything to do with disliking the game? It's not like you're forced to cheat or interact with the community.

Pokemon needs massive change, it needs to evolve into a more traditional full 3D openworld RPG game. (preferably on console) (possibly a MMO, although that might be to ambitious)

They cant just keep doing the same stuff over and over again. more and more generations of pokemon is just making it worse, its so overwhelming, hundreds of completely forgotten/useless pokemon in the game.

If they make new generations of pokemon they need to completely remove the old ones from the game, would be much better imo.

OK. There are still rivals, just not as snobbish as Gary F'in Oak, maybe, but they are there.

9.) Easy: This is self explanatory, it just got too easy.

Story mode is easy in almost any game. Ever tried battle challenges in the endgame, or perhaps building a competitive team? MUCH more challenging and rewarding.

8.) Fairy type: This was just uneccessary, it was just awful. Terrible idea, Game Freak, Terrible idea.

It was a brilliant idea, if you play competitively. Dragons were insanely OP in the metagame until they were nerfed by Fairy.

7.) Spoon-feeding everything: THis is especially in X/Y where everything freaking everywhere is just handed to you like a toddler. It made it that I didn't get toenjoy getting stuff, MYSELF.

Um, what? Not sure where you're coming from with this, I felt it was just as challenging as the others.

6. Air battles: This just annoys me because it has HARDLY ANY USE. What was the point in the first place?

For funs. Some people actually enjoy it, and it's an extra dynamic, so why not? They'rd all optional anyway.

5. Wonder Trade: Have fun getting pokemon yourself? Well, now you can just get all the shiny action replay hacked pokemon you want if you get lucky.  Great idea, Nintendo....

Then don't wonder trade. It's a godsend for breeders who are looking to send away their scraps. You can get 3,4, even 5 IV legit pokemon from WT.

4. Rushed: X/Y was only made in a couple years, which is why there is nothing to do after you beat it. Sad but true.

Eh, the amount of competitive dynamics added this gen is amazing, so I'm fine.

 3. Action Replay: What happened to being fair, now i t is just a few button taps away from having every legendary ever. WOW.... 

It's been this way every gen, don't blame Nintendo, blame hackers.

2. Fanbase: NO MATTER WHAT the Pokemon company decides to do, fanboys will defend and praise its name, just eagerly loving whatever is thrown at them. Not everybody is like this, but sometimes people are just pathetic in the fanbase, which annoys me.

Every fanbase ever is like this.

1: Mega Evolution: All I can say is these are STEROIDS FOR YOUR POKEMON.... that is all I can say....

I like Megas. They added more competitive aspects and buffed up some Pokemon that really needed it.

Back in the day... :P

10. Rivals suck, I can agree. However rivals are getting better character development now, so I dont care.
9. Pokemon was always easy. Ive never had a problem beating any Pokemon game XD my 5 year old sister beat G/S, the games arent hard at all...
8. Fairy made Dragon types less uber and made things balanced
7. The games always spoon fed, so another non-issue
6. Air battles gave you a break from standard battles. They were just for fun, so it makes sense they'd be in limited use. Pokemon always introduces battle mechanics like this that they never use later on
5. Only a complete moron would throw their shinies in Wonder Trade... It was an optional thing that gave you quick access to many foreign Pokemon/ Pokemon with regional differences like Vivillion (however you spell it). Ive received a ton of good Pokemon from WT actually :p
4. X/Y was rushed, I agree.
3. What are you even talking about..? XD thats not even something GameFreak endorses
2. Genwunners are much worse, trust me
1. They add a new strategic element to battle. Plus they made remakes have more hype since they can give new life to existing Pokemon. I really believe the only reason they were made was for remakes :p

These complaints are pretty shallow and seem to highlight a somewhat low understanding of the series as a whole more than anything else.
