    Hey there, community! Gigabyyyte here, and I'd like to play a game with you. A… writing game, to be exact. ._.

    Okay, here's the thing. Given certain parameters, let's sum up all six current generations in less than five words (except for the summary, haha). Describe the gen, fill up those slots (the second partner, btw, is like your starters "right hand," if you know what I mean), and spill in a little summary if you may. You don't have to do a summary if you don't want to. The format is set for you in this spoiler:

    Generation IV
    Describe Me:

    Generation V
    Describe Me:
    Favorite Starter:
    Second Partner:
    Shining Moment:
    Favorite Legendary:
    Summary:

    Generation VI
    Describe Me:
    To-be Starter:
    To-be Second Partner:
    To-be Shining Moment:
    Favorite Legendary:
    Summary:


    I'll provide a little example of my own below.

    Generation I
    Describe Me: Cool.
    Favorite Starter: Squirtle. (OH YEAH BLASTOISE)
    Second Partner: Pidgeot.
    Shining Moment: DEFEATING BLUE MY GOSH
    Favorite Legendary: Articuno and Mew. c:
    Summary: This… Pokémon thing… is just so amazing. The concept, the gameplay, the everything, actually; I… I have nothing to say.

    Generation II
    Describe Me: EPIC.
    Favorite Starter: Totodile. (FERALIGATR all the wayyy)
    Second Partner: Still Pidgeot. c:
    Shining Moment: DEFEATING RED AFTER 243546355867454 TRIES. :c
    Favorite Legendary: Suicune. Lugia. Celebi. YEAH.
    Summary: Um, YouTube's MetroTechUniverse puts it this way: the sequels allow the player to go and defeat the champion that they themselves have created. So, yeah. With an intertwined character system and the best storyline in my book, this gen gets, like, A+++++++++.

    Generation III
    Describe Me: Greaaaat.
    Favorite Starter: Torchic.
    Second Partner: Uhhh, Rayquaza? (lol)
    Shining Moment: Getting to the Battle Frontier. :>
    Favorite Legendary: Rayquazaaa.
    Summary: I love Hoenn, especially the music and le Battle Frontier. c: Now, if only this could find its way to a DS game…

    Generation IV
    Describe Me: Extraordinary.
    Favorite Starter: Piplup. c:
    Second Partner: Staraptor? O:
    Shining Moment: THE DISTORTION WORLD
    Favorite Legendary: Arceus.
    Summary: I haven't really played these games in-depth so I'll have to rely on videos I watch for this one. Gen IV is, in my opinion, the best in terms of aesthetics; it has those cute overworld sprites, the pseudo-3D overworld… world, and all but the Pokémon names decapitalized (I love it this way). This is a good gen that revolutionized the series forever.

    Generation V
    Describe Me: Amazing! =))
    Favorite Starter: Oshawott/Tepig.
    Second Partner: UNFEZANTTT
    Shining Moment: Seeing Kyurem. Wow.
    Favorite Legendary: Kyurem, and Genesect. :D
    Summary: I hate to say it, but Gen V is my least favorite generation. I don't know; I don't like the legendaries, I don't like the overworld, but hey, it's still pretty cool. The sequels are great, the area is grand, the World Tournament is simply outstanding… well. I guess we're torn between black and white.

    Generation VI
    Describe Me: Promising.
    To-be Starter: FENNEKIN! (or Froakie?)
    To-be Second Partner: Pangorooo. Fighting + Dark = WIN.
    To-be Shining Moment: My first Mega Evolution. c:
    Favorite Legendary: XERNEAS ALL THE WAY
    Summary: "Promising" is the exact word. Though they took the overworld away (NOOOO), everything else seems great for X and Y. The Mega Evo's, the connection to previous games, included aspects of France… this is surely going to be one successful gen.

    So, what do you think, guys and gals? Discuss!

          Generation I
          Describe Me: Trying to be Ash.
          Favorite Starter: Charmander.
          Second Partner: Pikachu (Because I got the Yellow version.)
          Shining Moment: I was too young to remember much.
          Favorite Legendary: Articuno.
          Summary: Too young to remember things. Cried when my cousin sister caught a Magikarp with my Masterball. Cried when my cousin sister restarted my game and actually saved it over. My cousin brothers were the one catching the legendaries for me and practically the whole game xD

          Generation II
          Describe Me: Stop trying to be a Ash-wannabe. Still name character Ash, though.
          Favorite Starter: Cyndaquil.
          Second Partner: Espeon!
          Shining Moment: ^ ESPEON! I didn't know the criteria for evolving Eevee into Espeon and Umbreon back then, and I was SOOOO omArceus when it evolved! (I meant to keep my Eevee as Eevee his whole life!)
          Favorite Legendary: Lugia.
          Summary: Cloning was fun xD Practically still depending on others to help me play my games, but more of myself this time. STILL. I still get lost in caves, they are my common enemies.

          Generation III
          Describe Me: Started hating Ash, so I named characters after myself now.
          Favorite Starter: Mudkip (RSE)
          Second Partner: Bulbasaur (FRLG)
          Shining Moment: Catching Rayquaza.
          Favorite Legendary: Latias!
          Summary: I started understanding games better and played all my Gen 3 myself. Tracked Latias for days to the point of praying xD Emerald's Rayquaza stopping of the fight between Groudon and Kyogre was epic.

          Generation IV
          Describe Me: Professional player now xD
          Favorite Starter: TURTWIGGY~ (DPPt)
          Second Partner: Totodile (HGSS).
          Shining Moment: I started trading for IV and EV Pokemons here, as well as the shinies, to the extend of training as well as breeding some myself!
          Favorite Legendary: GIRATINA OF COURSE~ Everyone who know me well here knows!!!
          Summary: I honestly find this the best generation to date. Nostalgic Gold and Silver-remade, as well as Giratina, and gaining so much shinies here. Not to mention the overworld sprite of your Pokemons following you behind reminds me so much of Pokemon Yellow! Also love the awakening of Lugia and Ho-oh here. Distortion World was epic. And Shaymin.

          Generation V
          Describe Me: Bored and underrated.
          Favorite Starter: Oshawott.
          Second Partner: Snivy.
          Shining Moment: I honestly have none.
          Favorite Legendary: Reshiram.
          Summary: I hate this generation. And I didn't play much at all. Still, I like Zorua (Zoroark) as well as the Haxorus-line. N was a bonus as I liked his design and his character in the game. I can't even spell or remember much names here. But I liked the fact I can catch Latias (Favourite legendary in Gen 3!) Rushed through the game because I really hate it so really, nothing much memorable.

          Generation VI
          Describe Me: Anticipation!
          To-be Starter: Fennekin :333
          To-be Second Partner: Aurorus is sweet! And Gogoat and and and... Pyroar!
          To-be Shining Moment: Hmm...
          Favorite Legendary: Yveltal looks bad and mean. I like it!
          Summary: This is so exciting, I don't even feel much for Gen 5. This game's leaks and news make me so much more anticipated!

            Describe Me: Old-school funtimes.
            Favorite Starter: Charmander!
            Second Partner: Pikachu
            Shining Moment: The Champion battle!
            Favorite Legendary: Moltres
            Summary: Played it a ton and was thrilled when the GBA remakes came out.

            Generation II
            Describe Me: A brand new adventure.
            Favorite Starter: Totodile!
            Second Partner: Heracross
            Shining Moment: Fighting Suicune
            Favorite Legendary: Raikou
            Summary: Loved the GSC generation and still really like them, though I'm torn on whether HGSS are superior or not.

            Generation III
            Describe Me: A tropical environment? Yes!
            Favorite Starter: Mudkip
            Second Partner: Azumarill
            Shining Moment: Fighting Steven/the Frontier Brains!
            Favorite Legendary: Jirachi
            Summary: One of the most replayable gens in my book, due to the sheer variety of Pokemon available.

            Generation IV
            Describe Me: Slow battles. Agh.
            Favorite Starter: Chimchar
            Second Partner: Luxray
            Shining Moment: Cyrus. Dat music.
            Favorite Legendary: Heatran? (If Heatran doesn't count, then Uxie)
            Summary: Introduced some neat Pokemon and odd evolution methods. Unfortunately, the battles and EXP gain are very... very... slow. Probably my least favorite generation (and why I'm torn on HGSS).

            Generation V
            Describe Me: A brand new beginning.
            Favorite Starter: Tepig
            Second Partner: Stoutland
            Shining Moment: Reshiram VS Zekrom, and VS Colress/Insane!Ghetsis
            Favorite Legendary: Reshiram
            Summary: Black/White rekindled my interest in the Pokemon games. Without them, I probably wouldn't be back into the series as I am now. They're outstanding titles, and the sequels are strong games as well, with both having the best soundtracks in any Pokemon game to date.

            Generation VI
            Describe Me: Huge potential.
            To-be Starter: Chespin!
            To-be Second Partner: Honedge!
            To-be Shining Moment: I want to know what Team Flare's up to.
            Favorite Legendary: Yveltal looks cool.
            Summary: I really like the idea of Team Flare using genetics to create their "beautiful world", and given the plot's been relatively good in the past couple games, I really hope they continue that trend for XY. The only other thing I hope for is another fantastic soundtrack.

              Shining Moment: I almost gave up hopes on getting MEW through the DITTO glitch...but I manage to do anyway, without all those youngsters, near the bridge trainers etc. Getting Mew in a whole new way! (no cheats, only glitch)
              Favorite Legendary: Mew

              So I haven't played gens 4 or 5, but hopefully I can still give it a shot what with my mild interest in 6.

              Generation I
              Describe Me: If MOTHER was a monster catching game...
              Favorite Starter: Bulbasaur
              Second Partner: At the time? No idea. Most recently, Nidorina.
              Shining Moment: At the time, probably catching Mewtwo or anything involving MissingNo. Most recently, glitching myself two Mew.
              Favorite Legendary: Mew, if not Articuno.
              Summary: I grew up with this game, but have no attachment to it. As far as modern RPGs go, I found and still find EarthBound to be better. Considering that I think this was Creatures Inc's first RPG since EarthBound, it feels sort of similar to it compared to all others, even Kanto's own remake, so I do enjoy that. However, the one thing I give this game over all other versions is that because it was trying to find its footing, the series was extremely laid back in this era. I appreciate the fact that Pokémon had yet to become serious business, in universe and among fans.

              Generation II
              Describe Me: Terrible
              Favorite Starter: Chikorita is who I picked, but I like Totodile too.
              Second Partner: It was either Nidoqueen or Nidorina. Most likely both as they usurped top spot anyway.
              Shining Moment: Haircuts and massages. First interaction with Pokémon that made me feel connected. Yay! At the time this would be enough, today I consider it far too little.
              Favorite Legendary: Ain't much, is there? Celebi I guess.
              Summary: Would not want to play again. If this was indeed going to be the last game (and I remember reading such things), I'd've been disappointed being left off on this note. And yet, I wouldn't've minded the series ending generally speaking. Good things should come to an end.

              Generation III
              Describe Me: Better than Johto
              Favorite Starter: Mudkip chosen, kinda loved them all though.
              Second Partner: Kirlia and Mawile. They're both second, they're inseparable.
              Shining Moment: The whole darn game. That foggy ash area with the music stand out in my mind.
              Favorite Legendary: Latias, runner up goes to Jirachi.
              Summary: The reason to be glad Johto wasn't the end, because this is my favorite of the series. The region opened up to include new level tropes, I loved the designs of the Pokémon as I felt they didn't get too complicated yet (Groudon and his sea/sky friends nonwithstanding). It also included contests, which on paper sounds great to a Pokémon pacifist like myself. They didn't pan out so well, and it's a shame I quit here because I dunno if they ever got better.

              Generation IV
              Describe Me: Why is this still going?
              Favorite Starter: *shrug*
              Second Partner: The one with the face.
              Shining Moment: A personal shining moment is that I can at least pick out Buneary. I like that Pokémon.
              Favorite Legendary: The hedgehog thing is cute.
              Summary: I was burnt out on the series for being repetitive at this point, so yeah.

              Generation V
              Describe Me: Enough already!
              Favorite Starter: Heh
              Second Partner: I know even less about these guys.
              Shining Moment: I found out about Golurk thanks to Tumblr. Seems pretty cool. I also like that Gothorita or whoever. I just call her Dark Kirlia.
              Favorite Legendary: What?
              Summary: Okay, yeah, so for the most part I can't tell who's from gen 4 and who's from gen 5 and honestly it's not important enough to me to find out. The only thing I know for certain is somewhere among these two, designs got convoluted and it goes against everything I was taught as far as cartoon character design goes, especially for animation. That aside, it was around this era I really drifted from the official franchise and didn't even pretend like I was still interested, despite running a Pokémon website since gen 3 or so.

              Generation VI
              Describe Me: What is this intriguing feeling?
              To-be Starter: Probably Froakie.
              To-be Second Partner: It better be Nidorina. And just like Silver, usurpage.
              To-be Shining Moment: Pokémon-amie! It's like that excitement I felt as a lad in Silver with the haircuts, only this time it actually MEANS something! I see you can also change fashion styles... I know this is really corny but please oh please let me accessorize my Pokémon too. >_< And if there's contests, make them not suck. You've had 3 generations to work it out, I assume.
              Favorite Legendary: What?
              Summary: I'm kind of a scumball in the sense that I haven't paid a bit of attention to any new Pokémon, or any old ones. Just a particular family, and the hopes that they're in here somewhere. :P What's weird, though, is it's the first time I've actually been more interested in all the new gameplay features. It feels like an RPG I can get behind as an RPG and not as whatever the heck it's been for 5 generations. I loved Hoenn, but even then, Pokémon felt sort of hollow overall.

              In a way, this is also why I don't care about the creatures this time. My indifference actually makes me open to all of them, and I'll be happy to play with all new faces. But I'm also so done with the series that none of this stuff can pull me out of the apathy void alone. Pokémon-amie comes close, but I need that familiar face to pull me out of "don't give a crap" land, man. ;_; It's like an old friend encouraging you to take a trip overseas with them. I don't ask for much. You can do it, Game Freak. I still want to believe.

              I played games from all 5 generations, so I should be able to do this.

              Generation I
              Describe Me: It was OK, liked the gen 3 remakes
              Favorite Starter: Squirtle
              Second Partner: Persian
              Shining Moment: At least able to play the game
              Favorite Legendary: Mew, I was never able to find one
              Summary: I was never able to play on console, I did play on rom emulator (before giving up on them) - had fun playing the originals.

              Generation II
              Describe Me: It was OK, didn't finish the game
              Favorite Starter: Cyndaquil
              Second Partner: Furret, actually it was my 1st partner, starter was second
              Shining Moment: Have not finished it (only got 7 badges), never will, I don't use roms anymore
              Favorite Legendary: Lugia
              Summary: same as gen 1 above - I was never able to play on console, I did play on rom emulator (before giving up on them) - had fun playing the originals.

              Generation III
              Describe Me: too much water! Got lost many times
              Favorite Starter: Mudkip
              Second Partner: Linoone! again it was first, starter was second
              Shining Moment: Some how I was able to find Sootopolis City after being lost for almost 3 weeks navigating the waters
              Favorite Legendary: none, but if I where to choose one, then maybe Rayquaza
              Summary: Lots of great Pokemon to choose from, too much water to navigate and I got lost easily

              Generation IV
              Describe Me: Hours of fun, battles a bit slow! Lots of great Pokemon
              Favorite Starter: Turtwig
              Second Partner: none other than Buizel!! Loved him/her.
              Shining Moment: I played Pearl (I choose it specifically) for Glameow!! Catching one was my most favorite moment for this generation!!
              Favorite Legendary: Palkia
              Summary: So many great memories, lots of Pokemon I liked in my team. Getting my Pokemon exp up was kind of slow, taking long time. I'm still trying to raise the levels lucky egg helped a bit.... overall it was the Pokemon themselves I love the most

              Generation V
              Describe Me: It fits me perfectly, everything I wanted in a Pokemon game became reality
              Favorite Starter: Oshawott, because of Dewott!!
              Second Partner: Watchog!! again starter would be second
              Shining Moment: Playing my all "Watchog Team" [one team I had always wanted to play] and struggling at times. Also was the first Pokemon game I actually finished
              Favorite Legendary: Reshiram, still favorite of all legendaries
              Summary: Best generation for me, has my #1 favorite Pokemon (of all times, Watchog), at least to me Gen 5 was perfect

              Generation VI
              Describe Me: Been excited to play the games! Waiting for the new surprises!
              To-be Starter: Chespin
              To-be Second Partner: for now, Pyroar
              To-be Shining Moment: all the new surprises, and finally I'll be able to play another team I always been dreaming of, all Feline team (as there are now 7 different Cat Pokemon evolutions)
              Favorite Legendary: so far none, but if I choose one, Xerneas
              Summary: again waiting for the new surprises, still waiting patiently for the games to arrive (about 3 weeks now)

              Generation I
              Describe Me: My childhood.
              Favorite Starter: Squirtle
              Second Partner: Pidgeot
              Shining Moment: All 151 Pokemon
              Favorite Legendary: Articuno
              Summary: This gen was so addicting. I just loved being able to pick any six monsters out of dozens, train them, nickname them, and bond with them. Also, everyone at school was obsessed with Pokemon. I could actually find common ground with classmates and play with friends. Everyone had different Pokemon, the variety was endless, and that's just what pulled me into the series for the next 15 or so years.

              Generation II
              Describe Me: Even greater part of childhood
              Favorite Starter: Cyndaquil
              Second Partner: Furret
              Shining Moment: Shiny Weedle, first wild shiny
              Favorite Legendary: Suicune, Raikou, Lugia, Ho-oh
              Summary: I loved being able to play as a girl. I loved being able to explore both regions and earn 16 badges. I loved the sprites, animations, and new Pokemon. I loved the night cycle and daily events. I can't imagine my life without this gen, either. I also caught up to 250 Pokemon, only missing Celebi to this day. Gold and Silver died, but Crystal still runs.

              Generation III
              Describe Me: Still important in my life
              Favorite Starter: Treecko/Torchic
              Second Partner: Swellow
              Shining Moment: Shiny Lugia after 3-day hunt
              Favorite Legendary: Latias, my #1 favorite Pokemon
              Summary: I'm pretty sure someone was playing Ruby in class - he had a Torchic and Wingull - and I didn't have the game yet. I think I got it a month later on my birthday then. It's still a great chunk of my childhood. I almost nearly completed the Pokedex on Sapphire, but I decided to do a new game. Trading things over was a nightmare, haha.

              Generation IV
              Describe Me: Thank God for Wi-Fi.
              Favorite Starter: Chimchar
              Second Partner: Shinx (caught Pokerus!)
              Shining Moment: 120+ Chain; 7 shiny Ponyta
              Favorite Legendary: Giratina, Shaymin, Darkrai, and Arceus.
              Summary: Local interest was rare, so thank goodness I managed to join forums to make the most out of this generation. I've met so many friends on PC in the trading section. My obsession is what led me to my position here today.

              Generation V
              Describe Me: "You're still playing...?" - Parents
              Favorite Starter: Oshawott
              Second Partner: Lillipup (ditched after some gyms)
              Shining Moment: SHINY COTTONEE ON DAY 1
              Favorite Legendary: Virizion and Reshiram.
              Summary: This one was honestly so-so for me. This was the generation I deeply knew just about every Pokemon and location before I bought the game. I decided my team beforehand; I bought Black version just so I could get a Cottonee. I was so so lucky to find a shiny Cottonee after a few hours after buying the game. Other than that, I went through this gen pretty aimlessly. Trading was stale since many could get perfect shiny Pokemon or just download some. Good gen while it lasted, but it ended so soon, imo.

              Generation VI
              Describe Me: I want Serena's clothes, duh
              To-be Starter: Fennekin
              To-be Second Partner: Fletchling for now
              To-be Shining Moment: Getting back into trading, perhaps?
              Favorite Legendary: Yveltal
              Summary: As much as I'd love getting back into trading and see an entirely generation unfold, I have some other bills and studies to attend to before having the chance to experience this one... We will see in the next three weeks.

              Favorite Starter: Charmander

              Shining Moment: Beating Brock, cause I didn't when I was a kid lol
              Favorite Legendary: Articuno
              Summary: Red means a lot to me, personally. I played it late, but it was still amazing even then and it helped me through a hard time in my life. I owe it a lot.

              Generation II
              Describe Me: Happy feelings!!
              Favorite Starter: Cyndaquil
              Second Partner: Sentret
              Shining Moment: Getting Umbreon!
              Favorite Legendary: Entei
              Summary: Silver is also important to me, as I played it the same time I had Red. Again, I owe this game a lot. The battery died a while back, and I had to get my friend to fix it immediately. This game is too important to me to not be able to play anymore.

              Generation III
              Describe Me: Fierce
              Favorite Starter: Torchic
              Second Partner: Wingull
              Shining Moment: All of it
              Favorite Legendary: Regice
              Summary: My absolute favorite generation. No questions asked.

              Generation IV
              Describe Me: Wobbly start, great finish.

              Shining Moment: Shiny Golbat!
              Favorite Legendary: Uxie

              Generation V
              Describe Me: Whoahoohaohaohaoh1121?!?!/1!!1
              Favorite Starter: Oshawott
              Second Partner: Petilil
              Shining Moment: PETILIL
              Favorite Legendary: Victini
              Summary: I had a blast this generation. So many great Pokemon designs, and one of my absolute favorites managed to break into my unmoving top 5 Pokemon. That's truly a feat to behold.

              Generation VI
              Describe Me: New faces, new places!
              To-be Starter: Fennekin
              To-be Second Partner: I don't know what's early on, so lol...Sylveon idk.
              To-be Shining Moment: Petting a Petilil ;o;
              Favorite Legendary: Let's wait till we see more
              Summary: I'm beyond excited for this! :)

                To-be Shining Moment: TBD

                Summary: Do they have a Bank? Can we please grow berries again? Can we customize our home? Will we see the battle seeker again? The phone? Fairy Pokemon.

                That was fun! That's all for now, koffi~

                Edit: I think that the third generation cursed the following games by making the starters Fire/Fighting.

                        Describe Me: The beginning
                        Favorite Starter: Squirtle
                        Second Partner: Arcanine
                        Shining Moment: Defeating the Elite 4, because Lorelei was TOUGH.
                        Favorite Legendary: Mew
                        Summary: Despite having a copy of Blue, I never did play through the original games as a kid. I did play FireRed and LeafGreen a ton though. I guess because I never played the original versions, I didn't mind that the remakes weren't all that different from them. These were simpler times and when there were only just 151.

                        Describe Me: Beautiful.

                        Shining Moment: Getting to Kanto. I never thought I was going to make it lol.
                        Favorite Legendary: Raikou
                        Summary: The Johto region is a beautiful region and it has some of the BEST designed Pokémon of any generation in my opinion. Despite the low level curve in the games and the level of difficulty it is to train because of this, I still never get tired of restarting the games and completing my journey all over again. Like Gen I, I never did play the original GSC, only the remakes. I'm ashamed to admit, however, that because I'm so trigger happy when it comes to replaying over the games that I've never made it atop Mt. Silver to battle Red. This is why I also never thought I was going to make it to Kanto because I started over so many times.

                        Generation III
                        Describe Me: Home
                        Favorite Starter: All of them, but definitely Treecko
                        Second Partner: Beautifly
                        Shining Moment: Start to Finish. Also, running into Latios for the first time.
                        Favorite Legendary: Latios
                        Summary: Now you know that I never played through Red or Blue and Gold, Silver, or Crystal. That's because Ruby was the first Pokémon game I ever got for the Christmas of my 10th year. For that, Gen III will forever hold a special place in me, and not just because it was the first game I ever got, but also because there were some pretty amazing memories made for me during this generation and time. Some of the best memories of my childhood actually. So, it's more than just the nostalgic factor that has me so bias towards Gen III. Also, like Gen II, it has some of the best designed Pokémon in the entire series and a beautiful and artful region to go with. I couldn't tell you how many times I've played through my Ruby version. Favorite generation. Period.

                        Generation IV
                        Describe Me: Fun, fun, fun!
                        Favorite Starter: Turtwig
                        Second Partner: Togekiss
                        Shining Moment: Training a migrated Treecko to Level 100.
                        Favorite Legendary: Azelf
                        Summary: Wi-Fi! Competitive Battling! So much trading! I have Diamond and Platinum, and I love them both very much. Played through them both many times and had just as much fun as the last. Platinum, especially, was such an improvement from Diamond and Pearl. Whenever I think of Generation IV, besides just fun, I also think of vibrant. Sinnoh and the overall look of Gen IV were just so colorful and plentiful, that it made the experience all the more enjoyable. There's also a hefty number of great new Pokémon from here as well. I've actually been contemplating restarting Platinum before the release of X and Y.

                        Generation V
                        Describe Me: Disappointment.
                        Favorite Starter: Oshawott.
                        Second Partner: Reuniclus
                        Shining Moment: Playing White 2
                        Favorite Legendary: Virizion
                        Summary: I associate Gen V with disappointment, sorry to say. There were only a handful of Pokémon I actually liked from this generation, the starters overall were disappointing, and a lot of the Pokémon because of uneven stat distribution were sort of useless. Also, I usually got bored by the time I made it to Castelia City. The region itself felt uninspired and small. Probably the best things out of Gen V for me was the plot, seasons, N, and the sequels which were much better than the first two games. Overall, I sometimes just like to pretend that Gen V never really happened.

                        Generation VI
                        Describe Me: An evolution.
                        To-be Starter: Froakie? Fennekin? Chespin? I'm currently undecided because I like them all!
                        To-be Second Partner: Pangoro!
                        To-be Shining Moment: I'll get back to you on that.
                        Favorite Legendary: Xerneas and Yveltal
                        Summary: Gen VI looks exceptionally promising. I've loved nearly all of the new Pokémon revealed, an it's the first time since Gen III where I've favored both of the mascots equally. The graphics and overall look of X and Y are such a change, that I'm really excited to finally experience it from my own eyes. There are also so many new features that I excited about. What excites me the most is that we still don't know very much about the gams, we still haven't seen all of the new Pokémon, and the entire world is going to get to enjoy it together at the same time for the first time. Also, sitting on benches, it's totally a thing now.

                          Generation I
                          Describe Me: The start
                          Favorite Starter: Bulbasaur
                          Second Partner: I'm assuming this is for favorite pokemon, right? If so, Farfetch'd.
                          Shining Moment: Since I have not played/beaten R/B/Y, I'll just go with beating the E4 in FR/LG.
                          Favorite Legendary: Mewtwo
                          Summary: Still a very well designed region. Although the original games suffered from weird design choices and technical limitation, the remakes are absolutely fantastic. Kanto is probably the best region in the whole series bar none, it was designed with limitations in mind and it was stronger for that.


                          Generation II
                          Describe Me: The Improvement (sorta? If going off by R/B/Y only)
                          Favorite Starter: Totodile
                          Second Partner: Mantine
                          Shining Moment: Beating Red with an underlevelled team.
                          Favorite Legendary: Ho-Oh
                          Summary: My first Pokemon games but not the first I TRULY played. Even though I did beat Crystal a long time ago (after Gen 3), I'll use my judgment on HG/SS. Although the games are very fun, they suffer from pretty bad design choices. Probably the worst in the series in that regard. Johto was just small and underwhelming. It had potential but ultimately limited itself for adding (a worse) Kanto. On top of that, the Pokemon selection is awful. Not a lot of balance in the choice, and all the good Pokemon are available much later. On top of that, the difficulty curve and level balance is tripping balls. One time it's the easiest game in the series, suddenly it's the hardest next. Grinding is HELL in these games because of the low levelled encounters. Terrible, terrible, terrible. On the other hand, everything else about the games are borderline amazing. Shame about its shortcomings.

                          Generation III
                          Describe Me: The Pinnacle of the Series
                          Favorite Starter: Mudkip
                          Second Partner: Ludicolo/Hariyama
                          Shining Moment: Good god a lot
                          Favorite Legendary: Groudon
                          Summary: The absolute best of the series. And I'm not saying this because Ruby is the first Pokemon game I truly got into. In fact, I came to this conclusion just after a RECENT playthrough two months ago. I realized just how genius gen 3 is. It solved all of Gen 2's problems, and added to its improvement. The region is well expanded and big, covering many themes so it doesn't get dull. It's also very explorer-friendly with how many secrets and nitbits hidden there. The best thing about this generation though, was its simplicity. On top of having 60fps, nothing about the game was too overwhelming, but it still had enough to not be underwhelming. R/S/E had a perfect balance of everything. Roster, difficulty, region everything. What? Too much water? Use a god damn repel, for christ's sake. Oh, Pokemon suck? Subjective. Your favorite Pokemon sucks. What? No second region? Well, G/S/C was weaker because of that so...
                          Gen 3 is gonna be remembered for its technical superiority over the other games and also for it's humongous replayability. R/S/E are truly timeless games, and it shows. People still look very fondly of it and play it regularly.

                          Generation IV
                          Describe Me: The Appreciated Addition
                          Favorite Starter: Turtwig
                          Second Partner: Rampardos
                          Shining Moment: Can't choose. Maybe catching Dialga.
                          Favorite Legendary: Heatran or Dialga
                          Summary: A very well appreciated entry to the series. It was a great addition to the battling system, but unfortunately fell short in terms of everything else. The region, roster, level balance, pacing, etc didn't feel as good as Gen 3. It was gen 2, but better. Which, in the end, is pretty fine. Great generation. On the other hand, it introduced rough 3D graphics and reintroduced 30fps, which is really unfortunate.

                          Generation V
                          Describe Me: The Worst
                          Favorite Starter: Piglet
                          Second Partner: Scrafty (god-tier amongst a pile of mostly mediocrity)
                          Shining Moment: None
                          Favorite Legendary: None
                          Summary: This generation sucked. And I don't wanna explain why again, and again, and again. Just everything about it bar the battle system was terrible. Pacing, region, I just hoped Pokemon would end after these piece of crap games. Felt like a gen 4.2 rather than a true gen 5.

                          Generation VI
                          Describe Me: The Promise
                          To-be Starter: Froakie
                          To-be Second Partner: Tyrantrum
                          To-be Shining Moment: What?
                          Favorite Legendary: Yveltal I guess
                          Summary: The potential is huge. This might end up the gen that could come close to gen 3's brilliance for me. It looks like it'll make up for B/W which is much appreciated. Just everything about it looks promising. Well, everything, except for one big problem that could ruin it.

                          Describe Me: Fantastic for its time, but has not aged well.

                          Favorite Legendary: Zapdos
                          Summary: As much as I love Gen 1, I cannot begin how many fallacies it has. There are a lot of mechanics that did not work as they were supposed to as well as some that were just terribly implemented. The music and such was good, but eh. Cannot replay for more than five minutes.

                          Generation II
                          Describe Me: Had a lot going for it.

                          Favorite Legendary: Suicune
                          Summary: I'm absolutely torn on this one. I had so many great memories with this game but when I try to play it now...I'm not feeling it. I want to love it again but I can't seem to.

                          Generation III
                          Describe Me: Ugh...
                          Favorite Starter: Mudkip
                          Second Partner: Flygon
                          Shining Moment: Battle with the game's legendary; Rival fight (round 2)
                          Favorite Legendary: Latias
                          Summary: Here's the thing, I can't stand gen 3 with the exception of the Pokemon introduced; the Pokemon introduced are some of the best designs ever came up with. The tiles were bland (except Emerald), the music was nothing to write home about, and goodness don't ask me to surf ever again. I did like FireRed and LeafGreen, but I honestly consider those to be something like Gen 3.5.

                          Generation IV
                          Describe Me: Low start, high end.
                          Favorite Starter: Turtwig
                          Second Partner: Gastrodon (oddly...)
                          Shining Moment: Cynthia (the beginning of her theme sentences your death)(DPPt); bringing forth Ho-Oh (HG/SS)
                          Favorite Legendary: Darkrai
                          Summary: Everyone either loves this generation or hates it...I love it. It's got some of my favorite music in the series, the games were a little slow, but probably some of the most intense in the series. Perhaps the only generation where I felt that the third game in the series was needed as a revision. Also my favorite region geography.

                          Generation V
                          Describe Me: ...my favorite?
                          Favorite Starter: Tepig
                          Second Partner: Carracosta
                          Shining Moment: The battle with N in his castle.
                          Favorite Legendary: Zekrom
                          Summary: This generation was just lovely. Currently the definite experience to me in every way (maybe besides some of the English names.)

                          Generation VI
                          To be given upon release. Too early to say anything, but I've never been this hyped for Pokemon before.

                            Describe me: Surprisingly fun (Crystal was my first)
                            Favourite starter: Bulbasaur
                            Second partner: Kabutops
                            Shining moment: Beating Blue!
                            Favourite legendary: Zapdos
                            Summary: It was a little bit lacking compared to Gen 2, but my god these games are great.

                            Gen 2:
                            Describe me: OMYGAWD THIS GAME'S AWESOME!

                            Second partner: Tyranitar

                            Favourite legendary: Ho-Oh
                            Summary: My first game...brings back so many memories...

                            Gen 3:
                            Describe me: Not bad, not brilliant either
                            Favourite starter: Torchic
                            Second partner: Cradily
                            Shining moment: Capturing Rayquaza to wreck everything!!!
                            Favourite legendary: Rayquaza
                            Summary: Yeah, this is a weird one for me. It wasn't bad, but I didn't really enjoy it as much as the previous generations. I'll pop this game in and play a little bit any day.

                            Gen 4:
                            Describe me: Hnnnnnnghhhh...
                            Favourite starter: Turtwig
                            Second partner: Fluffy the Garchomp
                            Shining moment: The Distortion World
                            Favourite legendary: Heatran
                            Summary: Definitely my least favorite. It just feels so...slow. There's a second delay for everything. Some of the pokemon are pretty cool (GARCHOMP), but the others...not so much. I absolutely loved Heart Gold and Soul Silver though.

                            Gen 5:
                            Describe me: All hail...
                            Favourite starter: Oshawott
                            Second partner: Zoroark
                            Shining moment: Beating N and Ghetsis
                            Favourite legendary: Reshiram
                            Summary: My favourite of the bunch. What I love about it is how different it feels (NO MORE ZUBATS). I loved the story and most of the pokemon added (I hate you Gothitelle). Overall one of the best games I've ever played.

                            Gen 6:
                            Describe me: Can't wait!

                              Victreebel's Bro, I don't think you can catch Mewtwo in Gen 2; Cerulean Cave completely collapsed... I think you meant HGSS and it's considered a Gen 4, actually.

                                Describe Me: New
                                Favorite Starter: Bulbasaur
                                Second Partner: Nidoqueen
                                Shining Moment: Seeing the rival being the champion made a intimidating final boss.
                                Favorite Legendary: Mewtwo
                                Summary: While the games haven't aged well at all, the Pokemon introduce were good starts to the series and the art style of the generation was very nice. A great start to a great franchise.

                                Generation II

                                Favorite Legendary: Celebi
                                Summary: There really isn't much to say about Gen 2. While it isn't as strong as its predecessor in the Pokemon department, the game were a huge step up.

                                Generation III
                                Describe Me: OMG OMG OMG

                                Shining Moment: Can't think of any - that's how good this generation is.
                                Favorite Legendary: Groudon
                                Summary: Best art style, region, Pokemon, games, design, characters. This is the best of pokemon and the peak of the series quality.

                                Generation IV
                                Describe Me: Enjoyable
                                Favorite Starter: Piplup

                                Shining Moment: Going to spear pillar and watching Cyrus summon Palkia.
                                Favorite Legendary: OMG PALKIA
                                Summary: Don't like it as much, but it has the best memories for me. Good region, solid art style, it's just the pokemon introduced were lacking.

                                Generation V
                                Describe Me:

                                Favorite Starter: I just chucked them in the box.
                                Second Partner: Volcarona
                                Shining Moment: There wasn't one
                                Favorite Legendary: Zekrom was the only one I cared for.
                                Summary: This gen sucks. I hated the art style, N was a annoying twerp and the whole 'fresh start' they were trying to do fell flat on it's face. B2/W2 were okay games, but the entire generation was still a disaster.

                                Generation VI
                                Describe Me: Hopeful

                                Favorite Legendary: Yvetal
                                Summary: It has potential. I don't think It will be my favourite of the game and the pokemon introduce so far are a bit of a mixed bag. X/Y will still be fun, but after the awful gen 5 I have serious concerns due to how bad gen 5 was.

                                  Favorite Starter: Squirtle. *Loved Charmander, but I REALLY like dat Blastoise*
                                  Second Partner: Raichu *Can't get enough of the dark orange mouse *
                                  Shining Moment: Beating Blue and rubbing his nose in it.
                                  Favorite Legendary: Mewtwo
                                  Summary: My first generation, tutored by my brother. Many cherished hours of playtime.

                                  Generation II
                                  Describe Me: Best- Generation- ever.
                                  Favorite Starter: Cyndaquil. *Love you Totodile, but it's a weasel, that breaths fire.*
                                  Second Partner: Noctowl *It's an owl. 'Nuff said.*
                                  Shining Moment: Beating Red on the first try, Charizard vs. Typhlosion.
                                  Favorite Legendary: Ho-oh.
                                  Summary: This story-line was absolutely amazing. Loved the day/night mechanic. Pre-evolutions, baby Pokemon, concepts of Legendaries. Newfound love and obsession with Pichu. All in all, a great game, really built off of R/B's core mechanics.

                                  Generation III
                                  Describe Me: Meh, kinda cool.
                                  Favorite Starter: Sceptile *First time I've ever chosen a Grass starter- ever.*
                                  Second Partner: Mightyena.
                                  Shining Moment: Defeating Stephen.
                                  Favorite Legendary: Kyogre, although Rayquaza was a beast.
                                  Summary: Definitely appreciated the new look of the Pokemon and graphics. Truly brought out the meaning of what Pokemon should look and feel like. Wasn't a big fan on the music, but it was good. I was more exited when FR/LG came out, and all original 151 were reimagined.

                                  Generation IV
                                  Describe Me: Pretty freaking awesome.
                                  Favorite Starter: Piplup. *Fire/Fighting starter? No thanks, Steel/Water Penguins are top.*
                                  Second Partner: Staraptor
                                  Shining Moment: Defeating Cynthia's OVERPOWERED Garchomp ;D
                                  Favorite Legendary: Garch- er. Palkia.
                                  Summary: Diamond, Pearl, Platinum were all great games. The pseudo-3D effects were astronomical, and the look of the Pokemon were sharp and very appealing to the eyes. Great music, and a interesting story. Needless to say, I nearly died when I heard that Heartgold/Soulsilver were going to look the exact same graphics wise, and a remake of Gold and Silver to boot! Great Generation.

                                  Generation V
                                  Describe Me: Lolwut? Way too easy to beat.
                                  Favorite Starter: Oshawott *Snivy (Black 2). Getting a bit tired of Fire/fighting*
                                  Second Partner: Stoutland *Scottish terrier dog. 'Nuff said.*
                                  Shining Moment: Beating Red in the Pokemon World Tournament.
                                  Favorite Legendary: Zekrom
                                  Summary: A great generation, the moving Pokemon sprites added to the effect that these creatures were actually 'alive'. Music was pretty awesome, and the implementation of multiple rivals, instead of just one, was greatly accepted. I just wish they weren't so easy to beat :/ .

                                  Generation VI
                                  Describe Me: Promising
                                  To-be Starter: Froakie *Dat frog. Fennekin might be chosen if it isn't a cursed FIRE/FIGHTING!*
                                  To-be Second Partner: Charmander *If I choose Froakie, Squirtle if Fennekin.*
                                  To-be Shining Moment: Probably mega-evolving my soon to be Ampharos. I freaking love Ampharos.
                                  Favorite Legendary: Xerneas looks pretty sweet. But maybe Mega-Mewto X.
                                  Summary: Looks interesting, will definitely get it when I have some spending cash and a 3DS. I just hope it doesn't get so easy that I can mow through the story in the span of two hours.

                                    Summary: Gen 1 is quite literally the bare bones of the series. At least one future game has built upon every aspect of it, from gen 5's graphical improvements to gen 2's elaborating on the story. It's not the best but it's iconic for being the first.

                                    Generation II
                                    Describe Me: Yooo

                                    Favorite Legendary: None, actually
                                    Summary: Everything a sequel should be, and it's aged far better than its predecessor. While gen 1 had a very small amount of post-E4 content, gen 2 let you fight a second batch of gym leaders in an entire second region. That's the closest we'll ever get to an all-region game.

                                    Summary: I was never too big on gen 3 because I disliked the remakes and absolutely hated the original games so I was really surprised when I liked gen 4. It restored my faith in the entire franchise, especially when I took a liking to the Sinnoh portion of the anime. The Johto remakes are also pretty awesome.

                                    Favorite Legendary: Meloetta
                                    Summary: People whine about the Pokemon designs and N and blah blah blah who gives a damn. The thing that sucked the most about gen 5 was the experience system. Other than that, it was an alright batch of games. The sequel idea was pretty cool and I really preferred it to a third game that rehashed the same material with a few changes and some bonus content. Plus if you follow me on Tumblr then you know how much I love Elesa and Skyla.

                                      While I agree on most of your statement, I think you forget to mention on how much water is actually- oh. I see, you did mention it. Good. Because I'd hate for you not to mention all that H2O lying about.

                                      It would seem that a lot of younger people really enjoyed the third generation. I think they missed out on the steps it took to get to that point. I still think most of the fan base was shed after the third game came out. It just seemed to pale in comparison (for me) to the second's Pokemon Silver Version and Gold Version, koffi~
