Electabuzz and Magmar- I prefer them over their evolutions, which I hate
Torracat- Incineroar is my most hated mon
Ivysaur- I never liked Venusaur
Vigoroth- Slaking is ok but I prefer Vigoroth's design so much more.
I am afraid we're going to see the pokemon with mega evolutions in every single game from here to eternity. I mean a lot of the pokemon they added to USUM were pokemon that got megas (larvitar, mareep, heracross, pinsir etc etc) I would hate if that were to be the criteria for inclusion in newer...
I only care about following pokemon and pokemon riding. Oh and the nex box mechanics is everything I always wanted. But...
The rest can go to the abandoned mechanics afterlife with... pretty much every good mechanic they introduce and then take away forever for no good reason.
I love Gen 4 so much I can't choose a best pokemon. I will mention some of my favorites: Lucario obviously, all 3 starters, Staraptor, Luxray, Roserade, Gallade, Glaceon, Leafeon, Hippopotas, Toxicroak, Stunky, Drapion, Rotom, Giratina, Snover, Cherrim, Yanmega, Spiritomb, Dusknoir, Driflim...
They've been milking Gen1 nostalgia for years now so no surprise there. What baffles me is that they actually believe a casual phone gamer (those games are mostly free, and have optional micro-transactions) are going to spend hundreds of dollars on a switch and a Let's GO game.
I agree that the post game shouldn't matter as long as the main game's storyline is long and deep enough which for pokemon it has never been. Gen 5 was close to it but it still felt short.
For me a new post-game story isn't as important as having lots of features to keep me interested in...
There's a lot of things I'd love to see
First, combinations that have been used once on forms/megas/legendaries that deserve to be reused
Ghost/Fairy-this is the one i desperately one. Mimikyu was disappointing for me.
I recently did a countdown of my favorite games in the blogs. My top 3 are
3. Black & White
2. Black 2 & White 2
I doubt that will change any time soon. I haven't liked the new games since XY and SUMO are some of my most hated games.
Up to Gen 3 I did because
a) Internet wasn't a thing back then and the GTS didn't exist
b) I had no one to trade with
Since the GTS creation I don't have the need to buy both to complete the dex because I can trade for the things I need also forums like this and even tumblr or facebook groups...
I really liked XY and I couldn't help but wonder if Kalos was being left as incomplete as it was because there was going to be a Z game or just GF being GF, lazy and complacent. There were a lot of things that could've been made and were left hanging, and looking back at how things turned out I...
Favorite: I have two. Marlon 'cause he's eye candy heh and Morty because he's the only male ghost type specialist and I quite like his design
Least favorite: Clay he's very annoying. I also dislike Clair because of the badge shennaningans. She's quite the immature brat.
