What did people find confusing about Team Galactic's motivation and goals? I thought it was pretty straightforward myself--the ultimate goal was to create a "perfect" universe without fighting or suffering, but through the eradication of not only the present universe, but also all emotions (emotions being why we fight and all). Except only Cyrus and the three/possibly four commanders (it's unclear if Charon knew, but he also didn't care) knew about it.
I know there's some oddity over the last, since Saturn says in the postgame that he didn't know what his boss really wanted, but this is bull for a few reasons. First, he knew about the "eradication of all emotion" part. Second, he's the FIRST ONE TO TELL YOU about the new universe. Ahaha he's a liar.
Anyway, I'll tell ya what I hated about DPPt was the SURFING SPEED WOW THANKS GAME. It shouldn't take a minute to reach Canalave from Jubilife!
I also hated the way the GTS was arranged in Pt and that it's become the standard model. The DP version was so much easier to use.
And with the exception of a few pieces, the music didn't really stand out to me. The bike theme wtf why does it sound like those scenes in old movies whenever there's a news report?
I didn't mind the proliferation of legendaries, which I know is a common complaint. Some areas in the real world have more legends than others, so it makes sense. But I wish Nintendo would have made up their mind about how to get some. Dude, download or store events. PICK ONE. And while you're at it, give us the Azure Flute.
Who complains D/P/Pt is still playing the games, then I think that it is the bad habit of complaining about everything.
D/P/Pt were excellent games and they introduced some new stuff in the Pokemon world.
And Platinum fixed most of the things that people complained about D/P.
Believe it or not, The 4th Generation was the Generation that really got me into Pokémon as an early Teenager. As a matter of fact, That's what encouraged me to use this Forum. Now that Platinum was released: I see what the problem with Diamond & Pearl was... The meditite & medicham was used too often by the gym leaders & elite 4 & the speeds were pretty horrendous in comparison to what emerald gave us. But I really see no reason to hate them (Aside Tangrowth, Still haven't gotten used to that hideous wretch!)

I loved D/P I played so many hours...
I didn't realize how much I missed it until after I gave it away and bought a new SS version. T-T

I loved it, but it was VERY slow (battle animation, surfing), I nearly threw it out the window.
Apparently, the Kids Bop lyrics of "Thrift Shop" go like this:
Walk into the club, like, "What up, I gotta big heart"
I don't understand the hate. GEN 5 was much worse IMO.
I thought it was fine at the time, with the positives more than outweighing the negatives (which have been listed here already). But when Black and White came out, and I went back to restart Diamond after shifting all of my Pokemon to the new cart, I realised just how slow it was, and that's turned me against it a bit. That and the frankly ludicrous number of HMs, needing 5 to get through Victory Road. And yeah, I think Gen IV is the low point in Pokemon design, but like others have said that problem is solved after you beat the Elite Four.
I dont know why. I have beat and restarted 3 times. I love how in diamond after you beat the champion you can get lapras and can get level 70 girantina. I have diamond in my 3ds right now. But i hate how annoying they made the elite four. Also the people in the game talk to much.
me:cat use scratch. friend:your cat is not a pokemon. ME: OH YEAH? CAT USE GROWL. CAT:MEOW (SHUT UP! JUST BECAUSE I CAN DO THAT DOES NOT MEAN I WILL DO THAT!) FRIEND:HA HA! ME:FEEL THE WRATH OF MY CHARZAIRD! FRIEND: DUDE THATS A TOY. ME:WAH! CAT AND FRIEND:HAH HAH! IDIOT. LATER: HEY CAT IS THAT A ARCANINE?! CAT:MEOW (I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THAT IS BUT I DONT LIKE CANINES.) FRIEND:RUN! ME: HAH HAH. TURD FACE...I TOLD HIM POKEMON WERE REAL. BY AGGRON GUY
Personally, I think my pearl game is good, (mostly because you can get dratini) but I prefer Emerald and fire red. Most of my pearl team is pokemon I migrated from fire red and Emerald.
wha? I thought they were the most well-liked.. O_o
I stopped playing Platinum after I reached the Elite Four. Got bored easily.
My brother's SoulSilver run:
Amarantha, Lareep, Spike, StarowValear , and Fanni
My HeartGold Run:
Probably not good for competitive but these guys stuck with me through the end and I love them sooo much
IMO 4th gen was pretty awful. Platinum was good but Diamond and Pearl were just so goddamn slow and boring for me.
Hoenn > Unova > Johto > Kanto > Sinnoh
Theres no real super specific reasons why I feel this way, it's just me taking into account how I felt after playing these games and which ones gave me the most enjoyment.
I guess this is a little biased cause these where my first game, but I thought they were awesome
My Platinum Monotype:
Copy and paste this into your siginiture if you hate Minecraft(started by Ytterbium70)
Just one thing that bugs me the most about Platinum:
You can't check the Starter Pokemon you just picked to see what Nature it has, i.e. how can I tell if Piplup is Modest-natured or not during the first battle with Barry?

3 Things Pokémon X & Y Should Bring Back:
1. The Zubat line (<3 U, Crobat!)
gen 3 gets the most hate overall. Gen 5 didnt get hate, it got perfect scores off most people for doing something new with the series
It still got great reviews
