Well, that was a corny title, was it not? Anyhow, Sinnoh has recieved a considerable amount of hate, among the fan community. What I'd like to know is what was it that made you dislike Sinnoh. Was there one particular thing that made you stray away from Sinnoh, or was it a multitude of things?

I'm not one of those haters, but I think one of the reasons why people hate Sinnoh is because of the designs of some of the older Pokemon's pre-evolved forms (like Rhyperior).

    I think because it's new, no one I've come across has been happy with a region since Johto.

    They probably didn't like the fact that some of their favorites from the past were touched and converted into pre-evolutions and evolutions. Or the fact they might have over did it on the amount of evolutions. I really don't see what is up with all the hate though, I think they had some decent starters, a decent story with Team Galatic. A funny rival in Barry, and one of the best Champs imo in Cythia who has one of the most balanced teams in the history of pokemon for any trainer. The region is extensive and there is a lot to see. So I don't see what is not to like.

      Well I can't see what is not to like about it. Probably because Unova's graphics etc. made people think Sinnoh was lame. Maybe they wanted lots of cities like there were in Hoenn.There is a chance they did not like the new evos such as Gliscor. But like I said I am pretty sure they think it is lame compared to Unova.

      I reckon it's fantastic. People just don't like it because their favourite Pokemon got new evolutions that they thought looked bad or something - or at least, that seems to be the case with most. It's that whole corruption of nostalgia concept. Remember Gligar? He was so cute. And then GLISCORARGLEBLARGELFWAAAAAWHAT

      to add up to what has been said, and this is purely based on my observation and alot of surfing through the net. I found out that people don't like the fact that the Sinnoh legendaries introduced in the 4th gen pokemon games somewhat made the pokemons of older generation weaklings or not on par with the legendaries of Sinnoh mainly Arceus and the creation Trio.

      They didn't like the fact that those pokemons are of in a different level than the favorite pokemon of all time - Mewtwo. But I myself think that Mewtwo is still stronger than the creation trio though I don't think it can par with Arceus which is basically a God.

        Sinnoh is sorta still my favourite since it was my first owned game region. I don't get the hate with it and Hoenn, but nostalgic people don't like change. Funny thing is I hate Johto and I'm not a fan of Kanto ^_^ Newer people to the series will like the newer regions while older fans like what they began with.

            Well, I know some people hated the storyline.

              Some people prefer Red/Blue/Gold/Silver.

              Spheal with it, its the new generation. It was my first game, so I also don't get the hate. The story was just FANTASTIC, and everything else was just great about it.

                I don't necessarily hate it, but I rank it lower than others. I didn't like the generation as much as any of the others, for various reasons, but I didn't hate it.

                  I thought Gen IV was a bit of a letdown, but I didn't hate it. I actually enjoyed the games quite a lot. The Pokemon were only satisfactory, though.

                  It wasn't bad, but it certainly didn't come close to my expections... I couldn't take team galactic seriously (mainly because of their comedy fashion), but pokemon in there were generally forgettable also, nothing special. One positive thing though, was that they had the best music tracks. I could listen to them all day :)

                    Sinnoh? Bad?

                    Not necessarily. I liked Pearl version quite a bit. Team Galactic was funny, and the music was just great. Not to mention the awesome new Pokemon introduced to us, like Palkia and Shaymin. And Platinum just made everything even more awesome! :)

                    But... I will confess, I still like Soulsilver just a little bit more than Platinum version. May be the nostalgia factor. I liked the original Silver. But Platinum's still up there. (Origin Forme Giratina FTW!) :3

                      I. LOVE. SINNOH.

                      I am not really sure why, but it is my favorite generation and region. Maybe it is prejudice, I really don't understand why people dislike it so much. I think it is absolutely amazing.

                      Hoenn is the one I hate though :/

                      Word.

                      Well, I don't hate Hoenn, but I didn't find it amusing or exciting. Despite a lot of ideas came from Hoenn, it was still this stuck-between old and new game for me. Sinnoh expanded on them and played it right (for me). And I didn't like the Pokemon that much, in fact I only remember liking Treecko's evolutionary line off the top of my head.

                      I liked Sinnoh because there was just so much to do with old and new Pokemon. You didn't have to change the bikes, the contests were better. I have to admit though, it took some getting used to the crazy additions in some of the evolutionary lines.

                      Sinnoh is my favourite region of all of them, including Johto. Its design is more intricate and full than any other region. It's non-linear. You revisit many places you've been to before on your way. The mood it sets is also very warm and traditional. Basically the same reasons I like Johto only moreso, since it's larger (newer) and more complete. I get the sense it's the largest single region.

                      To me, Unova is the new Hoenn: tacky and fake. Did you notice how in B/W, you progress along a single path the entire way up to the Elite Four?

                      I'm one of those infamous Sinnoh-haters, and to be honest, I just can't put my finger on what irks me about D/P. All I know is that the games bored me out of them. I've never gotten further than beating Volkner in any Sinnoh-based game. >_>

                      Here's a small list of things that just rub me the wrong way:
                      - Team Galactic's storyline is hard to take seriously
                      - The plot's pacing is just...slow...
                      - I want to stab Barry repeatedly anytime he's on screen.
                      - With the exception of the main three, the legendaries are boring and not worth hunting.
                      - Sinnoh is generally very frustrating to navigate, especially Mt. Coronet and the Snowpoint area.
                      - My choice in fire-type was limited to either a horsie with fairly weak stats or an ape with broken stats but a horribad design. way to undermine how awesome the other two starters are, by the way...

                      I hear a couple of these were rectified in Platinum, but to be honest, I didn't even notice it was released until shortly before HGSS were announced. >_>

                      I get the feeling the very same reason you hate it is the reason why I love it so much. The non-linear region layout was epic. As opposed to the tunnel vision Black & White give me.

                      Unova has what, 16 routes, as compared to Sinnoh's 30. By numbers, Unova is smaller than Kanto! They're comparable when you count all the extras.

                        Sinnoh became my favorite and still is even now with generation 5 out. I am truthfully not sure why so many people hated it. I do agree it may of been because a few gen 1 and 2 pokemon got new pre-ev and evolutions.

                        Haters gon' hate.

                        Sinnoh might not be smaller, but it *seems* smaller with Mt. Coronet bisecting it. The rival is an annoying pain in the rear. And they did drop the ball with most of the new evos for older Pokemon. But on the whole, I enjoyed Sinnoh. Platinum especially was a great game to play through, even if none of the 4th gen Pokemon found their way onto my main battling team (which is still 1st and 3rd gen Pokemon).

                        Really, I can see why people don't like Sinnoh, but the negatives weren't enough for me to dismiss the games.

                          I greatly enjoyed Sinnoh, but a lot of complaints I've heard are "the Pokemon are terrible, I hate them all, there's no good designs" (like Mr. Mime and Jynx were amazing :P) or simply that it's not Kanto/Johto. I don't really understand :/.
                          I love the Gen IV Pokemon; it's the first time I've truly had a hard time picking a starter. I use several Gen IV Pokemon regularly in battles too (Infernape is awesome and Storm Drain Gastrodon has saved my skin more than once)... Oh well, to each his own.

I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature (however, I do build competitive movesets and do minimal EV training, just not ignore the Pokemon based on stats ;)).

                          Well, Platinum's not too bad (The Battle Frontier is growing on me). However, in DP, everything's too slow, the Pokédex is a bit naff (having the same number as Kanto isn't cool when you don't even include all the new pokémon). The Elite Four were horrendous in DP, even if they were higher-levelled than in Platinum (1st round).

                          The Battle Zone's appearance was disappointing both times...in its first iteration, it looks boringly similar to the rest of Sinnoh. In the Platinum version, it looks like it belongs in Hoenn, making no sense considering it's location (level with Snowpoint City). Even if it has a volcano, that doesn't mean it should be tropical!

                          But, tbh, I still love it, even in Diamond (although Platinum seems much better in comparison, especially as my Diamond is slightly broken, freezing quite often in the first snowy route).

What I'd like to know is what was it that made you dislike Sinnoh. Was there one particular thing that made you stray away from Sinnoh, or was it a multitude of things?

                            For me, ive only ever played Diamond (Planning on getting Platinum soon) And I didnt even play that after about two years after the initial release. The reason why im "Hatin" (Lol XD) on Sinnoh is because the way I see it, R/S/E were the second best games/generations out of all the Poke games, right behind HG/SS. Then came Sinnoh, and I was expecting it to be epic and all, but when I played it on my friends DS I was just like "MEhhh...Horrible names..Horrible Story line...horrible Pokes.." I especially hated the Legendaries designs and names, they just didnt..fit. *shrugs* But after reading about Plat. I really want to play it now..So I guess im not a hater anymore XD. But continueing on, after playing R/S/E, it seems as if the Poke games had considerably dropped in fun-ness and awesome-ness. I felt like Poke has betrayed me..By becoming suckish. Now I know differnet XD
