    How quite a few starters lack a good movepool, Meganium comes to mind straight away.

    Mega Latias and Mega Latios. Why do they have the same colors? It's hard to distinguish them from each other when they look so similar.

    When the DexNav of ORAS is unable to search for a particular Pokémon annoys me.

    They're supposed to be twins. That's the point.

    How Porygon requires to be traded twice to fully evolve, while holding the Up-Grade at first and then the Dubious Disc.

    But still, at least the Gen 6 GTS made things easier for me.

    It's still lazy because they didn't look nearly identical pre-Mega.

    It doesn't help that the design isn't very good.

    How you can't trade items without having to trade Pokémon that are holding those items.

    How in X and Y that to use the opposite Mega Evolution exclusive (eg Mega Mewtwo X in Y), that trading over a Mega Stone is required.

    That doesn't make it lazy. Lazy would imply they didn't feel like making individual looking megas. It seems pretty intentional seeing as Latios and Latias are integral to ORAS.

    Someone told me that if you mix the colour palettes of standard Latios and Latias, you get the exact same shade of purple as M-Lati@s, but I haven't played around with Paint enough to know if that's true or not.

    Um, it does? Look at them, the only difference is eye color and size, the latter of which is impossible to tell with the battle models.

    I fail to see how them being integral to ORAS translates to them having to look nearly identical.

    I don't know why I'm wasting my time arguing with people about this, since no one ever listens (to me)...

    I just have to ask, why is it so hard for you to accept this:

    as a valid reason why they're designed the way they are?

    Because it honestly sounds like you're just flat-out refusing to listen to any reason given to you right now.

    I heard the point, but doesn't justify GF's laziness.

    They're twins, yes, but they don't need to look nearly identical; the original designs perfectly encapsulate this by being obviously similar, yet simultaneously distinct. They're great designs. Mega Evolvution is a special mechanic that breaths new life into a Pokemon via new aesthetics, abilities, stats, etc, and they wasted the aesthetics part on what amounts to making design and copying it with barely visible differences.

    These Megas could have been so much better if they put effort into making two distinct designs to not detract from each other, but they didn't and it brings them both down.

    If it matters much, they do have different eye color.

    Mega Latios- Red
    Mega Latias- Yellow

    I only now remembered that the player character's room could be decorated with dolls and cushions in RSE, just like Super Bases can. I never noticed it before, but you can chose from the same selection of Poke dolls and cushions available for your Secret Base, and put them on the rug in the room.

    And as far as I know, this feature has been omitted in ORAS. This grinds my gears a lot, tbh. Was it so hard to program room customization in ORAS? Considering they managed to do it in 2002?

    PD At least the dolls and cushions haven't been removed, they are still there in ORAS, but can't be changed for other dolls or cushions. Brendan gets a Snorlax doll, and May gets a Lapras doll. They can't be changed.

    But how else would the game be fair and balanced?

    How Regirock and Registeel dolls for Secret Bases aren't yet officially obtainable in ORAS.
