Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, and then return two years later in Black 2 & White 2.

I loved the merge, it makes it much easier to have both (health and shop) in one building. I found annoying in previous generations when I reached a new city, I had to go on a hunting search to find out where the Pokemart and the PokeCenter were.

    I'm 50/50 on it, I loved seeing the Mart buildings, but, it makes life so much easier having both in the same place!

      This change was positive, but I don't want to see this implemented on the next versions.

      This feature must be seen as an exclusive feature of Unova. They don't need to put in the other versions

        I'm going to be honest, at first i didn't like it at all.
        After many years of tradition, having the PokeCenter and the Mart merge felt pretty unusual. After getting used to it though, i have to admit it's a lot easier and more useful than having two separate buildings. So in the end, i think this was a pretty nice change.

          Blah no I still don't like it. It's convenient, sure, but I prefer having individual buildings. The Pokémon Centres look too big and less cozy and I miss having the little cornerstore vibe from the Marts. It all became very uniform in Unova and yeah. I'm hoping that was just because of the urban themes and not something that will become a trend.

            Loved it <3

            It is more convenient to access both the Pokemon Center and the PokeMart now, as opposed to having two seperate buildings. I also liked how they provided instant access to the second floor in G5 PokeCenters!(In Gen 4, you need to ride the escalator up, which takes up a bit of time, especially if you wanted to change your signature on the back of your trainer card. Also in Gen 5, players could edit their signature anywhere they wanted.)

            To sum it up with one word: Convenience

            Although I still kind of missed the old blue buildings ...

              I do like the blue roofs but I'll admit it is convenient coming into a new town for the first time and just being able to find both the PC and the Mart under the one roof. I wouldn't mind it going forward cause it's an awesome idea overall

              PS: I still laugh about this:

              It was a huge convenience to have the PokéMart in the same building as the Pokémon Center, and it's something that 'realistically' makes sense, too. It's just logical.
              However, with that said, I wouldn't mind too much if they re-separated the buildings; it'd be nice to see little blue-roofed buildings in towns and cities again, and it's never a MAJOR inconvenience to have to go to a different building to buy items/heal Pokémon.

              I'm working on an album of Pokémon-inspired music. Check out the Soundcloud link if you're interested!

                I prefer having my PokeMarts in with my Pokemon Centers. It give the convenience of being able to do one stop for everything, while explaining how the Centers come into money, what with their free healing.
                Made my signature picture myself. I'm dang proud of it.
