To be honest I like the normal Pokemon formula, it's the reason why Azure Horizons is my favorite ROM Hack, why Pokemon Platinum is my favorite Pokemon game, and why the 3rd generation is my favorite. Since the 3rd generation is my favorite generation I also prefer 3rd generation ROM Hacks and ROM Hacking. It's also because the 3rd generation is underrated, along with the 4th generation.
Didn't the first generation have magnets, sludge, a Pokeball, and two Pokemon that were just three Magnemite and three Diglett combined together? Technically every generation has odd designs but it's not what Pokemon look like that matter, it's what they can do, like people. You shouldn't judge a book by it's cover you know.
In my opinion those Pokemon had creativity put in to them, such as Reshiram, Zekrom, Kyurem, Hariyama, Cherrim, Hydreigon, Yamask, Luxio, etc. Didn't you say Pokemon Black and White were your favorite Pokemon games? It is probably because of Game Freak doing some new things and wanting Generaton V to start from a new beginning.
Are there any Hoenn, Sinnoh, and Unova Pokemon that you like? Also, I'm the only person not tired with the Fire-Fighting combo, since there are three pure Grass and pure Water starters. Seeing that Game Freak are mixing things up with the 5th gen, the Ruby/Sapphire remakes are probably going to include the Sevii Islands, seeing as no one would expect it.
What is your favorite GBA ROM Hack? As in one that is already progressing as in the Progressing Hacks/Hacks Showcase and not canceled. I actually like GBA ROM Hacks as my favorites since, well, the third generation of Pokemon was my childhood and I like every game.
When I play any ROM Hack I always talk to everyone, and battle every trainer. I've liked seeing what kind of trainers we've battled and Pokemon they used since 2003. Same for ROM Hacks starting in 2006. I like how everything is decapitalized in Dark Future like in the 5th generation of Pokemon, or like in Pokemon Sienna.
What is your other favorite ROM Hack besides Dark Future? My favorite Pokemon game is Pokemon Platinum, it fixes everything wrong with Diamond and Pearl such as surf speed, Pokemon in Pokedex, difficulty, etc. It's an updated release that needed to be made. My favorite ROM Hack is Pokemon Azure Horizons, it has Torchic as one of the starters which becomes Blaziken, my favorite Pokemon, Hoenn music, decapitalization, everything is mixed up (except for the Parcel part at the beginning) and I don't really know what to expect next other than probably a water gym where you get to use Surf. The tile mix of Generation 3's tiles are great also since the third generation of Pokemon was my childhood.
I already downloaded it and patched it today. If I play for two days for 5 hours, since 2 times 5 is 10, I can get the beta completed, and extra things for another weekend. Pokemon Dark Future does look good to be honest.
I was just speaking my opinion, and after seeing some gameplay I'd say it would still be a tie. I like both Dark Future and Snakewood, they both are fun, while I did say they were better than Crystal Dust, I'd have to say I like Crystal Dust too. It's my favorite fan made GSC remake,with Heart Gold and Soul Silver coming in first for my favorite GSC remakes, especially since they are official.
