January 10th, 2006, 5:47 PM
Over the years as new games have been made there have been various improvements with each new generation such as the move to color, the introduction of team battling and contest. The introduction of Berries, different types of Poké Balls, new Pokémon types such as Dark and so on.

So what would you say is the best improvements done over the years?

I'll say the balancing of moves.

Look at Blizzard in RB. It was too powerful wasn't it?

Thank God they rebalanced it later on.

New types, real-clock time, breeding, move balancing, etc. I still have to say the Metal generation is the best one because you can get to Kanto AND Jotho!

Probably the new types. I would've liked to see more pokemon in type categories though.

I would say:
-The types
-Evolution types
-Upgrade to FRLG gfx

So many things I like. But the best were the new types and special defense... it really helped balance the game and prevented it from being Psychic-dominated (even though I'm a Fighting fan, I think it was a bit unecessary to make dark and steel both weak to fighting).

I think the new music (I do like the old though) such as "This Side Of Paradise!" featured in Destiny Deoxys and the main battle theme in Pokemon Advanced Generation.
I also like the concept of berries and pokemon contests.
The new poke-balls are kinda nice after going through the entire Kanto and Orange island episodes with normal ones.
I also LOVED the Whirl Cup, water pokemon are one (if not my most) of my favorties types so I thought that was good of them.

Somethings bad are: character removal, then forgettingness of Gary (whats up with that?), lack of the same animation quality. But thats about it

I’m glad they made the following changes:

*Made it so that you have ways of defrosting if you’re frozen. In RBY, it used to be that you can’t defrost EVER, which really sucks. But now you have fire attacks, Heal Bell, Aromatherapy, Natural Cure etc.

*Changed trapping moves like Wrap and Fire Spin. Wow, those were annoying especially when combined with Toxic and Leech Seed.

*Introduced traits. Some Pokemon are just that much better with them, like Magneton, Dugtrio, even Dunsparce.

*Put in move tutors so everyone could learn some old moves. Hooray, we have Substitute and Swords Dance and Thunder Wave again.

Definitely breeding and obviously new types and don't forget contests.
