There's exactly 1 route where I was kind of miffed at the lack of changes and that was Route 16
Now I suppose that Lostlorn Forest's big upgrade in addition to the others available there from before is supposed to make up for it (for both games, I guess that's why Lostlorn is there at all), but it always struck me as odd that it has the exact same Pokemon available as in Route 5.
I don't know what I would have added to it or changed, though.
I agree with you guys. I love some of the new routes, they are so rich in detail with all the flowers, rivers and mountains... The new cities are so creative, the new Victory Road is the best in the series with those columns and everything, but as you said, it's kind of weird to see some maps without any change. I hate Chargestone Cave in the original Black and White, so to repeat that nightmare wasn't my favorite part of Black 2 and White 2.

Magby, Elekid, and Growlithe seem appropriate for the Virbank Complex, whereas Flaaffy on Route 16 would make the Mareep in Floccesy Ranch be less unique. I think Clefairy could have stayed in the Giant Chasm along with Ditto, and I don't think Lickitung fits that well to begin with.
@Bolt the Cat
You are right, maybe I'm asking Game Freak too much. xD
I dunno why but route 16 remind me of Snubbuls. <3
As for Route 16, maybe Pinsir and Heracross as version exclusive Pokémon (5% shaking grass encounter rate)?
