I think that, no matter how hard they try, Gamefreak will never be able to come up with a plot better than Emerald. It was perfect. I mean, sure, battling Team Rocket is always fun and Team Plasma's quest for world domination is exciting and all. But the only story that's ever really catured me is two rival enviromentalist parties fighting for what they believe is best for the environment. And i love that with the help of Steven and Wallace you can show them the error of their ways and they make good. So ever since Gen III I've been waiting for a better story but I'm stating to get a bit skeptical.

There are actually threads on /vp/ where posters remove these features from official artworks, often yielding appealing results.

I want my first generation Garchomp.
Exactly, as any western professional would tell you this. I also think, however, that there's a cultural difference in play here, too. Japan seems to revel in the ornate, whereas western designs tend to be more simple because of pencil mileage. There's generally a reason why western animation tends to be more fluid/less rigid, but a the same time, doesn't go nearly into the same amounts of detail save for your occasional Disney flick.

Either way, there's no denying the designs got more complicated. Whether or not anyone likes them is up to personal tastes, but I will say this much. A person would sooner do a full, frame by frame no shortcuts animation on their own of Mewtwo than they would Giratina, I don't care how much they might prefer the latter.

I also agree with machomuu in that the series could benefit from at least a mild reinvention. Or I would, but considering the games that star the Pokemon hold higher appeal to me anyway, I almost don't care what the main games do anymore.

Oh boy, there's an unpopular opinion...

I don't like the trainer games compared to everything else on PC. It baffles me that there's not that much more diversity, which you'd sort of expect on a forum this size, but I recognize I'm a minority overall, especially here. :(

Also, Eevee doesn't have half the cuteness Vulpix has. Even stylized in fan art, I still prefer Vulpix. I think it's the overall design. Eevee's like your extreme animu version of a whatever it is, huge eyes and all, while Vulpix at least retains some anatomy. Also, don't bother pointing out that I'm guilty of such things myself, as I am already aware.

Not sure about others but I think Black and White versions 2 is a more logical follow up game than Pokemon Gray. I don't know why people are still complaining over a potential Pokemon Gray, but Considering the theme of monochrome, Black 2 and White 2 fit the theme quite well. Additionally, it wouldn't feel right to incorperate Kyurem as what Team Plasma's aim of capture during the original BW plot. I had a hard time thinking what would happen if that were the case. Also, their version exclusive themes are unique, where Black is technological and White is Rural, but Gray is what?

I find Froakie to be a cute starter, not many think Froakie's very cute.

Farfetch'd is an awesome Pokémon.

I also with machomuu that the series needs to be reinvented. I have lost a lot of interest in the main series that I used to have.
