Title
the best reboot of pokemon made. great idea to use a pokemon outside the ball and the changes to gym and location. the feeling to be inside the old gen but with a modern look is very strong

Title
this is so overrated. how is it that the awful level curve, the awful selection of wild pokémon, the lack of johto pokémon in half the gyms, the slow pace of the game are less important than "haha cute pokemon walking behind me"

Title
IMO either this game or Pokémon platinum are the essential Pokémon games to play. Not too easy or difficult. Tons of replayability, and one huge thing that no other Pokémon game does is have your front pokemon walking behind you. (Why no other Pokémon games do this I don’t know) It just makes you care for your Pokémon so much more. And the amount of post game content is amazing. You get to travel through all of kanto once your done with johto. And has one of the best battles in any game ever,SPOILERS****************
The fight with Red. Probably the ultimate challenge in any Pokémon game ever.

Just a quick rant I hate how dumbed down the modern Pokémon games are. Just so easy it’s boring. Wish they put in effort like they did with this game. Gamefreak just don’t got it anymore and should just pass the torch to a team that would be passionate to make a great Pokémon game again

Title
They Finally Made Johto Enjoyable! Well. More Or Less...
I've never been a huge fan of Generation 2 because of it's ridiculous level curve; the lack of new Pokemon and how scarce they are (Morty, the ghost gym, doesn't even have the game's new ghost type, Misdreavus, on his team); it's terrible pacing (one example: the 5th and 6th gyms are literally back to back); and it's small size (they half-assed a region so they could fit a empty, bare-bones, post-game Kanto alongside it on the GBC cart), but these remakes made Johto feel far more playable and enjoyable by comparison.

The Generation 4 engine and aesthetic is one of my favorites thanks to Pokemon Platinum and it really enhances the experience, unfortunately the janky level curve and annoying pacing are still present. At least I can have my Pokemon follow behind me, because that's all that matters, right?

Title
Still chasing the rush these games gave me when battling with close friends. A lot of time was spent referencing Serebii carefully breeding, IV training, and moveset building (no hacks) to create teams that I was heavily invested in and felt personally attached to. I've heard the B&W games had the best metagame/battle mechanics, but the combination of nostalgia and all the generations of pokemon that I really cared about being included in the dex makes this one the apex of the whole series (and probably the DS itself) for me. And the real-life novelty of the Pokéwalker shouldn't be understated either.

I lived and breathed this game for a couple years and it brought me a lot of joy and excitement in that time of my life that I'm not sure I'll experience again.

    Yeah idk you have to grind way too much right before the elite 4 and then again before Red and it just takes all the momentum out of the game. Also Kanto feels completely lifeless and boring, I have no clue why they made the wild pokemon underleveled, they missed an easy opportunity to make the post-game fun and challenging.

    Don't get me wrong I love the game but those are some pretty glaring flaws that definitely tarnish the overall experience for me.

    It's remarkable how wonderfully well made this game is, it feels so high end on the DS and then the modern Pokemon games on Switch feel like budget titles (for the given platform of course.) Sad to see the quality control tank for this series.
    This game is still so fun and satisfying even though there have been meaningful advancements in mechanics (I wish this had Fairy types) and such in the series.

    - Same bad level curve
    - Same bad Pokedex
    - Same bad post-game (but with more legendaries you won't use)
    - Same bad gyms
    - Same short campaign
    - Uglier, duller graphics
    - Pointless cosmetic changes

    Ah yes, the best games, how could I forget
