        I like gen 4. I feel like it perfectly captures the art of 2d and it’s very clean. Gen 5 seems a bit awkward to me with the sprite style, also all of the follow Pokemon are based off of HGSS so they pair better with that, and you can get away with using some gen 5 map tiles with gen 4 sprites, you can’t really do it the other way around because gen 5 is so much bigger

          I think that gen 4 and gen 5 are almost similar except that the perspective is more 3d looking in gen 5.But overworlds are totally dependent on what the players like.So i wanted to know more opinions on what you all like gen 4 style ow or gen 5 style.

                    For me, its better to "my eye" and my childhood (LOL) to play a game with these tilesets 2D :D

                    And NPCs like Platinum/ HGSS style, not like BW2 (with 'big arms' etc)...
