Tbh, I feel like the disconnect in the fandom is that people act like you have to either be a fan of the first 4 gens or the last 4 gens and no in between. When in reality the first 4 are ass (not 3 though) and the last 4 had peak Pokemon twice.


Ok but seriously, people act like if you like the last 4 your a little baby who can't tolerate criticism and if you like the first 4 you're a boomer ass nostalgia blind brat. What people fail to consider is that people can like both, people can acknowledge the flaws of both while not being blind to the flaws of the other. The games aren't objectively worse just because someone didn't like them, that's not how objectivity works. For example, I can say that Gen 5-8 are more streamlined to make the games more enjoyable with removals of HMs and loads of QOL improvements that overall make the games more enjoyable to most players. That is objective. To say that Gen 5 was the last good one and everything after is trash is subjective. Someone can say that Gen 1 was better, or that Gen 6 was better, or that all the Gens were better.


Unfortunately, Pokemon fans don't know subjectivity and treat as if their opinion is definitive fact. Yes, I am hella guilty of this too, being a Gen 5 stan and all.

Maybe, maybe...

We just like Pokemon?
Trash take, the truth is everyone’s opinion (except mine, I am based) sucks and only my favorite games are good.
Cope. :4pacman:

Waiting for Latias and Latios to get a theme
Honestly if any Gens needed the EXP Share, it's the first four. The EXP curve is ****ing jank for the following reasons
Kanto: The mons all have crappy EXP yields
Johto: What the **** is this level curve
Hoenn: A random level spike at Tate and Liza and another at the league
Sinnoh: All around, you tend to be underleveled for a mix of the previous reasons. Also the league.
Unova is serviceable, and lmao the only game that really sucked with the EXP Share was Kalos because it looks like it was made for the old EXP system instead of the new one, leading to serious overleveling. Alola worked beautifully with it, and I dunno on Galar cause I never played it.

Tbh Johto needed so much work besides the wack ass level curve. Like tf was the dex, couldn't even find like 99% of the Johto mons until Kanto and


Yeah I don't like Gen 2 at all. Literally the only Pokemon game I don't ever want to touch.

No but for real,

Just enjoy the games you enjoy. You are free to disagree with someone about praise or criticism, your also free to even agree!

Opinions are pretty cool, unfortunately, people don’t know what they are.
That's what happens when you got a massive ass fanbase with people who refuse to grow up mixed people who refuse to understand.

Same boat as Sonic, Paper Mario, Smash, etc...

Real chads deliberately play with underleveled teams using type match ups, status moves and stat knowledge to even the playing field.

Playing lategame Gen 7 exp.share off and taking on level 60 teams with a team of level 40s is the peak pokemon experience.

This mentality is probably how I lost a sword nuzloch

You guys are all like "I started with Gen 6" and "I started with Gen 4" and then I'm sitting here probably being the only one who started with Gen 3.
I started with Gen 3.
That entire era of Pokémon holds a special place in my heart as Pokémon Sapphire was the First game i ever owned myself, the Hoenn región Is a tropical setting just like where i was bien and raised and even as a grown Man i feel it has some of the coolest Pokémon ever introduced.

HGSS are pretty based imo

Gen 3 is still easier to go back to than 1 and 2 I agree, but if I wanted to play Hoenn I'd probably stick with ORAS.
While I haven't played it fully, from what I have played and seen, ORAS might be the best remake overall.

Sadly it got **** on for reasons.

Because it didn't have the cool Battle facilites Emerald had and they Made the game easier, this Is an objective fact as the gym leaders Pokémon had lower levels compares to the original.

And Mays redesign Is worse than her OG design.



...Okay maybe That last one Is a me thing i think her OG look Is cool.

Oh yeah btw, not sure how relevant the whole discussion is anymore but Scott Frerichs from Team FourStar said he'll murder himself before he starts selling NFTs

So add him to the list of voice actors who hate NFTs

Ya know if there's any voice actor I hope doesn't start doing NFTs, it's the Critical Role gang

I haven't really listened to the show itself that much but most of them are among my favorite voice actors and I really hope they don't invest in that ****

Nice list but sadly it's the bigwig VAs that are all getting into NFTs.

I don't get why. But hope is out there.

Welcome to today's weekly Smash Bros MTG crossover. Today, we're showcasing Ike, who fights for 1/1 friends who can't block.
Here he is:
Ike, Reformed Mercenary

I thought designing him based on his origin as a mercenary, and his evolution from that would be interesting, especially with the Treasure mechanic. Anyway, next time I'll be doing Squirtle, just Squirtle, because Nintendo decided that they wanted as many character to be counted as possible. See you then!

Can't argue with that!

That list I made is composed of big names in the industry (With exception of maybe like, 3, but they're in the industry regardless) but yeah, seems most folks getting into this are in the "I voiced your childhood!" camp. So they're kinda the faces of American VO in a way. So yeah, definitely not a good look, not gonna argue with that, haha.

Oh no, that made me realize that Mark Hamill is highly susceptible to getting scammed into by cryptobros

Oh no

(Side note: Sorry if it seems like I'm focusing on my favorite VAs, I'm hoping no one else gets into that stuff but I tend to fixate on the stuff I have personal connection to)

"Gregory. Do you see that folder on the home screen? The one titled "My Personal Collection"? I need you to open that folder, Gregory. That folder is where I keep all my stolen NFTs. I need you to upload it to Mediafire so the world can have access to them."
