I believe these are going to be the most predominant features of the series
• The fact that triple & rotation battles were introduced
• Original Antagonists
• (For the originals), No foreign Pokémon in the Pokedex
• Best Character designs
• The unique Legendary Pokémon
• The elite 4 were all rounded to the same level
• The unique additions to the visuals
Honestly, Pokémon Black & White is an impressive staple to the Pokémon series that doesn't deserve the ridicule it has right now!

Every generation has its own legacy: Gen I brought us Pokemon, Gen II brought us breeding and the current type chart, Gen III brought us the refined Battle facilities (BT in Crystal was more of a prototype) and Running Shoes, Gen IV brought us wireless communications, Gen V increased the importance of the story to the main game, made the battle scenes dynamic and brought us PWT.
Ice cream cones and trash bags aren't much more "un-creative" than Pokeballs with eyes or inverted Pokeballs with a creepy smile.
I have chosen!

there are goods and bads about pokemon in every generation. when people start to lose interest in pokemon(due to various reasons), they tend to look at all the negative aspects and vice versa. i dont remember people complaining about muk or voltorbs in gen1 because of the interest in pokemon for everyone. when more games are released, people start to lose interest and magnify the negative aspects of pokemon to give themselves a good reason to leave the pokemon community.
personally i hate those that say that gen1 and gen2 are the best just because vanilluxe or garbardor are ugly or badly designed in gen5, they simply lost interest in pokemon and are reminiscing the so-called "good old days" they had with pokemon in the past. i believe in generation equality as there are both good and bad things in every generation. in my opinion there are no badly designed pokemon as pokemon can be absolutely anything, anything at all. who set the rule that an ice cream cone and garbage cannot be a pokemon while a pile of sludge, pokeball, eggs, magnets or even alphabets are pokemon.

I think Gen V will be remembered, among other things, for the new lease on life it gave to many of the older Pokemon through Hidden Abilities.
The Dream World had an absolutely huge impact on the metagame. Pokemon that were never used whatsoever all of a sudden became viable. And I'm not just looking at the obvious Politoed and Ninetales here, Pokemon like Butterfree, which was an absolute joke prior to Gen V, was given Tinted Lens and Quiver dance and, hey presto, suddenly it has potential to be a sweeper?. Sableye came back from the dead to be a havoc-wreaking little imp thanks to Prankster being added to its already nice collection of status moves. Blaziken got sent to ubers, all kinds of crazy things happened because of the Dream World! Whether you're for these changes or you absolutely hated them, you have to admit that a lot of stuff changed thanks to that collection of internet side-games!

Well I'll remember gen 5 for the following:
-Interesting pokemon designs
-The first pokemon game since gen 1 which only featured the new Pokemon -that is until after the E4
-Likeable bad guy who wasn't boring
-The Dream World
-BW2 improved breeding methods

Though Gen V wasn't like that, Gen IV was far more complicated than it, considering the motives were actually justified by the entire team, instead of just N and some Grunts in Plasma.

Anyway; This genereation was amazing. I mean, it was far better than Diamond, Pearl, Platinum. Sinnoh was (personally) worse than Unova. Most Pokemon were evos of previous. We also can't forgot mechanics introduced in BW, BW2 such as: MMing@1300, IR Communications, GTS Negotiations, and the fact that existed. Don't forget about Anville town, getting your 8th gym basge from Drayden/Marlon, or reaching the E4, just to find that they're moderately tough and balance each other extremely well. Gen5 was great, and I excpect great things from Gen6 to be even better. (GO FENNEKIN!)

Gen IV is complicated because of how Dimensional Space-Time is intertwined in the plot.
And actually, the thinking is what partly makes it fun, just because it isn't fun for you, doesn't mean thinking is something fun for oher people.
Gen. V will always remain in my memories as the last Pokemon games I played.
Hail zee master Arceus!
And the Distortion World was onlymthere for ten minutes at the climax, which had no indication at the plot anyway, and was not technically at the end.
I also said it was deep, then commenting that Gen V wasn't like that.
Lol guys people having their own opinions so try not to shove it down their throats.
I personally think that Gen Five well... was a bit... not gonna say boring, but more tame. There was nothing ground-breaking like what the other gens introduced. Gen I introduced... well, Pokemon. Gen II gave the Special Split, Gen III brought abilities and EVs/IVs (I think) to the table, Gen IV introduced the Physical/Special Split, which made some moves more viable than others. Gen V... well, one can argue that it brought Dream World Abilities, but that was an add-on to the already implemented feature in Abilities. While three abilities is a fistful to choose from, it still isn't really that "groundbreaking".
As for the games itself, it really broke tradition. The usual rock type gym was banished into the deepest container, and brought new ideas in terms of a trio-leader, and a properly-recognised Sequel. Gen V also brought cool-jelly stuff to the table, such as 3D, enhancement in breeding mechanics, new type combinations and an "isolation" where no older pokemon could be caught as well as the last trainer to be fought before the main story is completed not a champion, seasons and more. Black 2 and White 2 brought even more features in the form of PWT - able to battle all gym leaders -, further enhancements in breeding and aspects of shiny hunting, expanded area from the previous BW as well as the ability to catch multiple old legendaries: Regi trio, Lake trio, Lati@s... Hidden Grotto also is another breakthrough, giving a free-legit way to farm DW Pokemon in-game.
Overall, IMO, 5th Gen is definitely a fast-paced gen. Despite it not introducing HUGE mechanic changes to the table, it'll still be considered as a good gen (say all you want genwunners) and BW2 is considered some of the best games by many.~

Garbardor is fine, but Vanniluxe...... why did they take a consumable thing and out eyes on it? I mean, a trash bag does make sense to an extent (mutation out of the filth and such), but Vani has a very strange shape for something that is supposed to be alive and the connotation behind it is very strange for a Pokémon. IT is like putting gogly eyes on a sock, or a pencil.
Regardless, you could say the same thing about Exeggcute or Cherubi. Using food as the basis for a Pokemon design does have a precedence.
