Let's see... It was a clean sheet of paper to start from. In a way, I felt the choice of colors to name the games was a nice throwback to 1st gen and how the veterans started with the very first games, so there will be newbies who started with the new ones.

It was the only gen to feature exclusively new Pokémon before the end of the story mode. This was a bold move and this time they got it right.

It had the best story of all games, IMO. And it's the only gen to have sequels within the gen.

It was the gen that fully utilized the DS capabilities, with 3D graphics and animated battles, although I think the sprites could've been higher resolution.

It wasn't much of an improvement on battle mechanics. Changes were mostly done to content (moves, Pokémon). It was a balancing gen.

Those are all valid reasons to remember 5th gen.

Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire, the day Pokémon pulled a Dallas and jumped the shark.
