I think I am a genwunner.
I have no problems with the pokemon themselves; they are similar to the original 151, and even have similar themes (dual fighting pokemon, cats in the vein of umbra and espeon, the common rat with killer evo, flying pokemon that draw parallels with pidgey and its evolutions)
The issue I have is the game itself. It feels 30% slower, and 50% more redundant than gen 1 and 2. Yes, the old man took me on a tour of cherrygrove. He didnt physically MAKE me heal my pokemon. Yes the "cool dude" and the old guy blocking the path showed me how to catch a pokemon; it took 20 seconds. It was short.
It was shorter, because the bags were simpler. I dont need a fucking explanation of the item I am picking AFTER I pick it. Id like it when I hover over the item. I should not have to go through so many messages just to switch my team on the field.
My rivals, friends or whatever the fuck Bianca and that other guy are called dont need to pop up so much, nor force me to talk to them just to hear them say "UMM WHAT DO I WANT TO BUY".
Moving through doors into new areas is much slower than it ever was on the GB/C. Yes, I understand the psuedo 3d graphics take time to render new locations, but I dont really care for them when its hindering my experience.
The battle animations seem lazy. What happened to the sprite of the tackling pokemon physically moving? I liked that. I dont understand why its necessary to zoom upo on the pokemon thats being attacked either, and then of all things, it rushed the damage. It rushes the one part it should be slow at; where you see how much damage you took.
At least the sounds are good.
tl;dr: the new pokemon themselves arent the problem; its the fucking games being made as trash.
