Agree on this so much - HeartGold / SoulSilver brought it up to the right levels.

In Platinum we had Leafeon and Tangrowth as well?

The only thing worse than Whirlpool is Defog. At least the former is kinda a fun move and I do like the appearance of the Whirlpools in-game. But yeah somehow its worse than when they had 3 water HMs in Hoenn - I think because in those games you could just delete Dive after reaching Sootopolis City.

Nooooo! Miltank is irritating as hell but I wouldn't have it any other way - she'd be so easy to beat otherwise. Also Poliwrath, really? There's so many options for pokémon that can hit it super-effectively by then. Maybe I'm biased because its one of my favourites, I dunno.

Yes, I have a heavy bias towards Gen III-style contests and that time was the last time I really participated in contests. :c They were fun!
Oh yeah, Gen IV contests were terrible - they basically added frustration to the original format for no apparent reason.

I think the idea is to make you explore everywhere again, especially when some new players might not know about the gym leaders appearing for rematches / trades. I actually liked it being so late, gave me a reason to raise my Kanto / Hoenn starters on wild battles rather than exp. share.

I'm not sure what you mean here? In HeartGold / SoulSilver you can get Gen I,II and III starters and you can get Sinnoh starters in Sinnoh.

There's like 2 threads on this already because its so true. I especially don't understand why Darkrai isn't available in-game considering its a counterpart to Cresselia. Shaymin makes more sense as Mew-esque pokémon (The 100x6 base stats cute legends) are never available in-game.
