Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu & Eevee in its entirety, especially since it was after S/M and US/UM.
At least Zygarde got an anime arc; Xerneas and Yveltal are still waiting for something after they were relegated to glorified extras in their own games.The biggest downgrade is devaluing third legendaries, oh wait, Gen 6 did that! So we went from a generation in which the third legendary (Kyurem) got two great versions to a generation where the third legend (Zygarde) got nothing in its own generation and instead had to wait until Gen 7 to get anything at all. That reminds me, Kyurem had a reason to get the forms he got and were very well explained within the plot of the games. For Zygarde? Nah, let's just dump him and his forms in a region that's completely separate from Xerneas and Yveltal, the two legends in which Zygarde was tasked to watch in the first place!
If I may extend on this: going from Hugh to Calem/Serena, Trevor, and Tierno. Shauna was decent (especially compared to her peers), but she was also a step down from Hugh, but at least it wasn't as sharp of a drop as the others.Going from Cheren and Bianca to Hugh. I don't think a character that is a jerk to everyone but the protagonist is a good move in this case.
Amen to that, my pink fox friend. While I never got to play FRLG, I can see it as the superior version of Kanto (and coming from me, that's saying something). I ended up with a used copy of Let's Go Eevee from a relative and it was every bit as bad as I thought it would be, and quickly traded it in for store credit for other games like CTR. I mean, it brought virtually nothing new to the table, barring Meltan, and was just one big old dumb love letter to Yellow and Gen 1 as a whole. As if Gen 1 hasn't had ENOUGH love letters to it lately (Kalos, Mega Evo, Alola, Alolan Formes, and now Let's Go). It's gotten to the point where the Gen 1 love is well overstaying its welcome. Hopefully Gen 8 fixes that, as Galar looks promising, but I'm not holding my breath.Man, yeah. One of the things that made me saltiest about Let's Go was that it was basically just a fancy remake of Pokemon Yellow. No Sevii Islands or anything else that was new to the Kanto experience that keeps me wanting to attempt another nuzlocke of FR/LG.
Just the unwanted love child of a gen 1 game and Pokemon Go.
