    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.~

    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!
    Agreed, along with the eviolite. Who woulda thought Chansey and blissey would actually be fighting for dominance in the metagame?

    And why are they "terrible"? And no, saying "lol ice cream/trash Pokemon" is not a valid answer.

    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.

    Vanillite is a mutant too, at least according to the Pokedex. It cloaks itself in snow and, by coincidence, resembles what we call ice cream. Presumably, the people in the Pokemon world (that place really needs a name) were inspired to create ice cream in the shape of Vanillite because it's an Ice-type and they figured that such an appearance would be fitting for a chilled treat. Kinda like how we have ice cream designed to look like cartoon characters, only under a more clever logic.

    Regardless, you could say the same thing about Exeggcute or Cherubi. Using food as the basis for a Pokemon design does have a precedence.

    drifloon/drifblim are balloons, magnemite and family are magnets. anything can be a pokemon, there is no definition of how a pokemon should or should not look like. its whether people accept the designs or not.

    I like Gen 5 more than Gen 4 and 2. Here's my personal opinion:

    What I like in Gen5 is as you travel longer along your journey there will be NPCs like doctors and nurses ready to heal you and it's very convenient.
    Though I liked Sinnoh the best, especially Platinum.

    Reusable TMs. THANK YOU.

    Also, sequels! Sure, they were stop-gappy, but sequels nonetheless!

    Good for you Yuyama. Too bad you've singlehandedly torpedoed any lingering respect I and anyone else had for you.

    I think we got a more fleshed out story with Gen V (I'm not saying the previous stories were not developed). The villainous team seemed to be more complex. We got an internet haven for people wanted to expand the game experience. We went geographical out of Japan (only counting main series) in Gen V with America, and we will presumably do it with France this Generation.

    Cipher sent us to hell - but we're going even deeper - take back every Pokemon that we've lost!

    This is me.

    I'm going to miss Gen V a lot. So many things I loved in it.

    And I hope they use the reception of the storyline to make an even better one in Gen VI. Also, make even better music!

    I liked the change of camera angles the games rarely brought but other than that, I'm a little bit less impressed (let's say it felt quite underwhelming) with the new featured pokémon which Generation 5 / Unova brought.

    I think it will be remembered because in Japan, they split the anime series of this gen into three parts. Not to mention the story of Reshiram, Zekrom and Kyurem.

    there is one more thing in gen 5 that was revolutionary but most people missed out on. black/white 2 gave us the ability to move multiple pokemon which previous gens could not. this made organizing boxes easier and more convenient

    They also gave us the ability to register multiple items AND whole menus.

    Actually, you're right. When my sister and I first found out about Black and White, we tried playing through our original games (Ruby for me, Firered for her) before getting Black and White. That really got me back into Pokemon from around two years of depriving myself of Pokemon...
    Currently not playing any Pokemon Games, you can check my Backloggery for games that I AM playing, if you're interested:



    If I'm playing a Pokemon game, I'll have my signature display the game I'm playing, current team, and badge number.

    Am i the only one who thinks that Generation V had the best soundtrack of any generation?
    That could be one of it's legacies.

    I believe Gen V's Legacy on the series will be the introduction of Triple Battling! It may not be used much now, but in the future, it could just become just as fun and popular as Doubles! ^_^

    Our topic is the 5th gen. Why do people feel the need to attack the first gen after something has been said about vanniluxe? To be fair, eggs are natural occurences, ice-cream is purposely shaped and made by humans to be a food.


    Number of Genwunners = 100
    Number of people accused of being a Genwunner = 100 000 000 000 000 000

    Yes, but Vanillite isn't actually made of ice cream. It's made of ice and snow, which are natural occurrences.

    My main argument was about the shape, not the material it was made from. My table is made from wood, a natural material, but can you go to the wild and find a nature grown or made table? If Vaniluxe was created by humans, I'd have no problems with it.
