I don't know about you all but I've heard of people who didn't like how easy it is compared to the originals (Yes, the remakes were made easier!) But are there other things about these games you can't stand?

And if not, what do you LOVE about these versions?

My favorite part of the Well know...that part...when you get Eevee. XD My least favorite almost everything I guess. I don't really like playing these games at all, so I think it's fair to say the majority of the game is my least favorite part. :P For simplicity's sake though, I really hate Silph Co. I used to have that place memorized from back when I liked to play FRLG, but not anymore, so yeah...I got lost last time I did it haha.

My least favorite part is how they seemed to make the dungeons and etc. noob-friendly compared to the originals. I'm all for change, but not when it makes the game that much easier. Just my two cents.

I liked the addition of the Sevii Islands; they were worth exploring after I finished FR/LG.

Hmm, hard to say, as there isn't much to the games that I actually dislike. This has been greatly improved from R/B/Y though, but all the caves I guess. Mt. Moon is pretty much the same as it was back in the old games, but the Rock Tunnel was so much less of a pain going through when you were actually able to see something, however it's still the thing I dislike the most about the game. What I liked the most about the game would probably be all the post-game inclusions. All the stuff they added with the Sevii isles, and the stuff you had to go through before being able to battle Mewtwo were some of the things that really helped make the game better than the originals, even though FR/LG have gotten much critique.

Ironically for those who know me, Cinnabar Mansion is my least favourite part of the story. Going through that place is horrid, it's so confusing and the Pokémon all poison you and stuff and rsngljdlgssd :( But after completion I tend to spend 90% of my time there training since I love the Pokémon in there (Poison types <3) and I'd kill for a shiny Koffing/Grimer xD Most favourite part? I'd have to say reviving the fossils and the Safari Zone, those bits are both super exciting and you can get some kickass Pokémon from them :3

My least favorite part about FR/LG is that once you've finished the main and post stories, there isn't really anything else to do.

I really did like the addition of the Sevii Islands, though. It was nice to explore a brand new area that wasn't in the original, with many cool things to see like the Sevault Canyon and the Tanoby Ruins.

There's actually nothing I disliked about it. I thought it was a good remake. Well if I had to pick something then I would have to say no Day/Night system. I know the originals didn't have them either but they could'v at least added it. But I liked how they added the 7 Islands and stuff.

My least favourite part was always wandering into Lavender Town. I've only been there to finish the main storyline and then run away like lightning. There are so many things I dislike about it. The game soundtrack is still one of the creepiest, even though they attempted to improve it.

My favourite was probably just catching legendaries and getting data for my Pokedex xD. I always felt satisfied when I caught a new Pokemon and would feel pleased for the rest of the day. I also didn't want to let old Professor Oak down!

FR/LG were way better than the old ones. What did I like most?
The sprites! They were better than the Ruby/Sapphire ones.
What I hated was the lack of Day and Night system. Overall: 7/10

My favourite part of the games is pretty hard to pick, seeing as they were pretty dull compared to other games and the fact that I have trouble picking favourites. My least favourite part is the post-game and getting the ruby and sapphire. I wanted to trade straight away.

I think that most of the aftergame (save perhaps the very end with the Team Rocket remnants planning to restore Team Rocket) was not well thought-through. Also, I don't like Lorelei going away from the Elite 4 during this period, as I cannot level my Pokes...

Can't say there was anything I didn't like about the games, actually.

Some of my favorite parts were exploring Lorelei's hometown and meeting her outside of battles, throwing down against Giovanni again, the introduction of the invaluable Vs. Seeker, and of course, my favorite aspect was the awesome girl trainer you could play as. I played as her every single time I went through my Leaf Green game, and I probably replayed that game more times than any other game, Pokemon or otherwise.

Least Favourite would be that stupid cave that requires you to use flash. The first time I played LeafGreen, I navigated through the entire cave WITHOUT flash. It IS impossible but outright annoying, luckily I had heaps of repel prepared. My favourite parts would be exploring the berry forest on one of the islands, actually, all the islands were my best moments, I love them all!

My favorite part of the game would probably be navigating cerulean cave, but my least favorite part would be getting through silph co. That took so long with all the stupid warp tiles!

I actually didn't actually like the islands they added. They were kinda boring and there were a lot of them hahaha. It was cool that the Day Care and Johto Pokemon were added, but that's pretty much it. :P

My least favorite part is the fact that in order to get some good items, you have to catch a certain amount of pokemon. I rarely caught any (and they always ended up being yellows team). I liked the game otherwise.
I like Sandshrews. A lot. I am Sandshrews number 1 fan. And don't you deny it.

Exploring and engaging in the Sevii Islands quests to help Celio finish the Network Machine was my absolute favorite part in the game, even though it was after the main storyline.
