This is simple. How will you feel if Black, White, Gray and the RS Remakes bomb? And when I say bomb, I mean the worst gen hands down. How would you feel?

I would probably shoot myself. Lol, jks, that'd kill me. :P

No, I would probably turn my back on Pokemon completely. Gen IV sucked completely, I mean, it was so uncreative. From what i've seen so far, Black and White will be the bomb, but if they're not, then i am gonna be SOOOO pissed.

Good thread idea :D

I'll be disappointed. I mean, R/S/E was kind of disappointing in what it did, but I never flat out hated it.

It'll take a lot for me to hate a generation.

Unsurprised. I'm not expecting a great deal to be honest. It would take a lot to top the current generation.

Well, I don't think it will bomb, I think it looks cool, but there will always be someone to criticize it. But I think it'll be a fun new adventure.

you mean if it has that same old same old storyline??? I will stop playing pokemon period. If this generation doesn't have any fresh new storyline.... I'm gonna give up PERIOD.

Well i didn't like gen 4 all that much just thought it was uncreative and just never got into it. But from what i saw the battle scenes look a lot better. But the new Pokemon that they are making for gen 5 I just don't have very high expectations for them.

abnegation
May 18th, 2010, 10:31 AM
I'm pretty adamant that it won't. I mean, I haven't seen the storyline or anything but so far it's been the best pokemon game to date, as I quite like the style. However, if it were to just be a can of snakes and the first glimpse was just a tease from what I thought it may have been like, I will be dissapointed.

Gen one to four have been great and I think that pokemon has improved as the years have rolled on. I feel that B&W is the result of Gamefreak and pokemon maturing somewhat. If it turns out to be a failure I'll probably lose hope until something new or better comes out, which will happen most likely. Personally I hope they go onto a bigger console with the RPG's, something like the Wii or Gamecube. If Gen V sucks, well no biggie but I will be dissapointed, but I very much doubt that the series will ever have a bad game; at least in this line, spinn-offs are a diffrerent story.

May 18th, 2010, 01:28 PM
Since I can't afford to import, I'll probably download the ROM for a day to check it out and see where it goes from there. If I like the ROM, then chances are I'll get it when it comes out during Spring of '11 (because we all know that's when it's going to come out, lol).

Ok, nothing can be worst than Gen IV, but nothing can be as good as Gen III without a HM like dive...

If they suck, they suck. It happens.
Every series has a bad game eventually.

Bloothump
May 18th, 2010, 02:10 PM
The thing is, even if it sucks, it's pokemon. So it won't suck. Unless it SUCKS. But it probably won't. Even so, I expect it to be amazing, considering they called this game a revolution. Moving pokes, enhanced graphics and older characters don't quite make a revolution imo.

Redrup
May 18th, 2010, 02:14 PM
I'll feel annoyed that I spent money on it.

However, I'll probably play it through at least once and then move back to Sinnoh or Johto if I grew bored enough.

TheAppleFreak
May 18th, 2010, 02:42 PM
I'm just going to play through it as normal, and if it sucks, I'll just go back to Platinum/HeartGold. That's what I did with Emerald.

i hated RSE so no doubt if they waste money on remakes they will bomb

Illustration
May 18th, 2010, 02:44 PM
I'd feel as though I wasted my money.

Other than that, I really wouldn't care if I thought it sucked. I'll just store it in my drawer and let it stay there for many periods of time to come.

RivalGator
May 18th, 2010, 02:51 PM
Well, actually, the only time that I have ever really been that utterly happy with Pokemon was the G/S/C days. I was really, really let down with R/S/E and I was all right with P/D/P. I absolutely couldn't WAIT until HG/SS, I was even counting down the days in my head until it came out (I litterally woke up every morning saying, "30 days left!" =D) but it actually let me down due to the lack of things I thought it was going to have and how hard it was to actually train there in Johto. So I was a little let down.
So if B/W are a let down, I'm not really going to feel that much different from the others. I might lose more interest in Pokemon, but it's going to take me a while to turn my back completely on Pokemon. After what I saw what kind of job they could do with G/S/C I don't think I'll ever miss out. lol. The second I decide to drop out of the games forever they'll make the most amazing Pokemon game ever. lol.

This gen won't go down the drain, and I hold strongly to that.

Zeta Patchouli
May 18th, 2010, 03:08 PM
Considering that I have some of the lowest standards possible, unless the game is unplayable, and the text written by a four year old, I doubt I'll hate it. But if I do, then I'll press on. I won't really care.

(Oh, and by the way, 1st gen is my least favorite so far, just to let you know of my expectations a little bit. I guess I'm backwards.)

I'm the same! I don't get why people think the developers owe them a good game or something, they always do try their best. I know i will find something amazing in any game i try, and it will be the same here!

Gen IV (4) is crap so as long as it's decent it can't be worst. Kanto and Johto 4ever!

I haven't been disappointed with any of the generations so far, I don't expect that to change now.

I don't get why people hated D/P/Pt or R/S/E.

I liked them. The only thing I disliked about D/P/Pt was that it seemed to be a recycled story with more childish plot. But overall it was pretty damn cool.

B/W/ w.e will probably be on of their best, if what I"m seeing can be based on level of depth in the game. But who knows.

Either way, I don't see it killing my thrill for Pokes. I'm 17 and don't see myself stopping anytime soon. Heck, I even got half my school back into playing some of the classics, as I sit here playing FR (no it'snot a classic but w/e)

Pokemon is cool in a total. Lets just hope to god, they give Mew some life in it <3.

mew ftw, forever \o/

All I care about is being able to catch, train and battle with Pokemon. It would be almost impossible for them to make me hate a game if I can still do that.

I'm sure it's going to have alot of new features that will draw in fans. Remember, Gen 2 added 2 new types and breeding, Gen 3 added double battles, and Gen 4 added online play. I don't think Nintendo will disappoint us.

May 19th, 2010, 05:13 AM
I don't see why everyone hates RSE. :(
The Hoenn series was pretty much the best, most creative series in there. Whoever came up with the Dive and Braille Code ideas should be made Executive Designer of B&W. Also, each game had their own enemy team, Team Aqua & Team Magma, I for one saw creative awesomeness in this.

HOENN NEEDS MORE LOVE

If B&W are anything like the Hoenn series, I will buy both of them, and the 3rd game.
If B&W are anything like the Sinnoh series, I will shoot somebody.
So I hope they don't blow, judging by the starters 2/3 are the coolest ones yet. Water one is a Bidoof standing up.

PiPVoda
May 19th, 2010, 07:41 AM
All gens have their good and their bad. Overall I expect Gen 5 to be awesome, and maybe even superior to Gen 4 (my favorite gen). Whether the game bombs or not will just be a matter of personal opinion. We all know that they will definitely sell well so it selling few copies is out of the question. Some people will like it, and some will hate it. I can see a lot of people coming on PC though saying how the pokemon were poorly designed in gen 5 and blah blah blah.

Some people just hold Nintendo to a standard so high that they can never truly be satisfied. Personally I don't consider myself too picky. Really all I ask for is a large region with plenty of features and things to before and after beating the main story and good pokemon. This is what pokemon really is about, the other stuff is just added perks that we've gotten over the years (though they're nice too ^^).

You might want to change your custom title to unfaithful pokemon fan.
I would probably feel sad for about 3 seconds and the catch them all.

Eh, I won't be surprised in the slightest. The gameplay has been getting better, but everything else has been on a decline.

For some reason this is my favorite post from this thread. Just keeping it real. Yeah sh!+ does happen and sometimes it turns out something wasn't as good as it was hyped to be. Disappointed? Yeah maybe, but will that stop me or others from playing? I doubt it.

It shouldn't be any worse than Gen. 4 (which was actually pretty good)

As Vegeta once said, that makes about as much sense as a banana riding a tricycle.

The gameplay is good, that's what really matters. :D

I probably wouldn't even mind. To me none of the gens sucked.

Bloothump
May 19th, 2010, 02:34 PM
You know what I hate? People need to stop complaining about pokemon. Really, you try creating 500 pokemon and see how original they are by the end. And I doubt anyone who says they'll quit playing pokemon if gen 5 is not great will, because if you had that little faith in pokemon, why would you even have an account on this site? The truth is, just go play a digimon game or that photo monsters game forn the DS and compare it to DPPt. Then tell me which is better. Because whether pokemon is getting worse or not, it's still a great game compared to other games on the DS.

Guy
May 19th, 2010, 02:41 PM
I have yet to actually come across a Pokémon game in which I think has completely "bombed." And honestly, I don't expect anything different from Gen V. If anything, I'd probably say it'll be one of the best current games to date. With how much attention this game seems to be getting, GameFreak seems to really want to make a big comeback with this being considered the "rebirth" of Pokémon. I never expect too much in a game, and I never expect too little. I just take what they throw at us and make the best of it. If I were to criticize any of the Pokémon games to say they sucked, then I would have left this franchise a long time ago. I take what I get and I enjoy it. Period.

Chaos Rush
May 19th, 2010, 03:19 PM
Well, if Gen V sucks, nobody's going to force us to play it, so I'll just play my own Gen IV rom hacks :D.

I never asked them to make 500 >_> They were the ones that did that. I doubt highly I could come up with 500 original ideas, which is why I won't expect them to make another 100 that really get my interest.

Besides, the Pokemon franchise is doomed to succeed, no matter what they do. They'll probably only slow down when there are so many that an extra 100 doesn't even phaze the audience anymore. So, if by "sucking," you mean "failing to make money," then that's not going to happen.

I've been playing since the 3rd Region (The very beginning of it)
And, I've grown to love Hoenn as the old pokemon fans love the 1st and 2nd Generation games.
So I know how it feels when people see Game Freak make some remake of the game.
But if it sucks, it sucks.
If it doesn't suck, I would like it.

But I looked at the 5th generation pictures, I like everything except for the battle screen.
If they put the 5th Generation graphics in the remakes of Sapphire and Ruby, it would suck very very bad, I hate it if they do that.

Though, I would play Black and White.

Ruby and Sapphire remakes, I pray that they won't make it like Black and White, I would like the D/P/PT and HG/SS graphics on the remakes.

Lornami
May 19th, 2010, 09:08 PM
Honestly? Nothing would change for me.
I still enjoy my pokemon centric life with Sinnoh and below, and not having an amazing game will not phase me at all. I'm perfectly happy now, nothing can "ruin" it for me.

Maybe because they were alot different than R/B/Y and G/S/C. The regions was more techish etc. the pokemon designs had more detail, and gameplay was a bit different. Or they are just overruled by nostalgia. lol :)

I think B/W will be great. I see some enhacements so far. XD

Volroc
May 20th, 2010, 03:58 AM
R/S/E proved some pokemon dont need to evolve inorder to kick ass so i loved that region, so those remakes couldnt bomb.

but after the trainwreck,& massive disappointment of gen4
i doubt gen5 could be any worse.
i dont think a nuclear bomb goin off over my head while im on the toilet could be worse then gen4 :P

but all jokes aside, gen4 was their worst idea ever, & im hopin i can forget gen4 with gen5
i want pokemon this time.
not: digimon wannabes, evolution **** ups, & legendaries flowin from a fountain.

I don't think any Gen so far has sucked and I don't expect the 5th Gen to either, but, if it does, I won't be too worried. There are still plenty of other great games to play in the Pokemon franchise. :)

May 20th, 2010, 12:39 PM
I wouldn't pay much attention to the new games from then on period. If something that looked amazing and wasn't on the DS came out, then I'd probably pay attention to it. After Gen IV I was pretty disapointed that it was so easy and had the same plot over and over again. I don't wanna just go and fight Gym leaders all the time. I wanna be the bad guy or something. Have a different view point.

Bluerang1
May 20th, 2010, 01:39 PM
I would stare. Like wow, I just waste SO much time, like now, waiting on this damn game and it ended up being rubbish, it good I don't swear, online or real life, or even * it 0_9 Seriously, I'll be mad/pitiful for myself. I just wasted my time!

Zorua
May 20th, 2010, 04:38 PM
I don't understand why a lot of people would give up Gen V if it happened to suck. Sure, it'd be quite disappointing if it didn't have the features that we'd hope for it to have, but why should that judge if we should ever play pokemon again or something? It's better to play pokemon as it is(Pokemon, of course) instead of something that we want it to be, that way it'd be a lot more funner, dontcha think?

You make a good point. Playing pokemon how it already is would still be fun, and yeah setting standards too high will only set us up for disappointment when the game do come out.

Simple. I wouldn't bother wasting money on it. When DP came out, it was awful, so I didn't buy it. Why on earth would I want to play a game I didn't enjoy? I just went back to playing Emerald until HGSS came out. If BW has the same storyline as the previous four gens and Pokemon as bad as Gen 4, I will go back to playing HGSS until the Emerald remake comes out.

Maybe if less people bought it just because it was a Pokemon game, Game Freak might care enough to produce a game that truly takes Pokemon to the next level.

i totally dont know what to think of the new generation cos the 3d part looks pretty cool but in some ways i feel they are taking pokemon too far and dont know when to quit, i was sceptical of pearl diamond etc. the graphics and content are cool but some of the pokemon suck luckily most of the pokemon are cool and not stupid looking but im totally worried black and white pokemon are going to be way over the top and ridiculous

SacredCheese
May 26th, 2010, 06:13 PM
Let me answer your questions with another question. How can you ask such a blasphemous question?!?! lol but really though, the pokemon formula has been tested and true, they aren't changing the battle formulas, just adding things to make it better. I for one am REALLY excited about the 3D environment :D

I agree. It seems to me like pokemon wasn't working hard enough on making good design for the pokies and too hard on other things (ie graphics/plot) which also kinda flopped, in my opinion. Hopefully they can come back to what they had in the original games, a mesh of awesome story and great pokemon.

May 26th, 2010, 08:16 PM
If it sucks, I would buy Ruby, Sapphire or Emerald since I lost my Ruby version a long time ago and never got to finish the game, and that would be my "new Pokemon game" until a new one comes out.

sonic smash down
May 26th, 2010, 08:44 PM
personally i need to start saving up my money for the real world. so ill probally just end up borrowing one of the games from my friends to get a feel for it. I was actually really disappointed in the r/s/e games personally not because of the pokemon but because of the storyline and in d/p series it was the other way around. I would like to see what they do with this gen. but im probally not going to end up buying anymore after the hg/ss remakes unless i do get into the nintendo game designing bussiness.
So i wont really feel all to concerned about how this gen turns out but i would like to see pokemon to return to its former glory of the r/b/y/g/s/c days

Only joking, i would proberley be very dissapointed and just complete it anyways,, and waitt for the next games :/
