Pokemon is an unpredictable and wild beast. What started as a humble new IP attempted has blossomed into becoming the most well known rpg franchise in a world. Even the creators weren't sure the idea was worth pursuing. It took kind words from lord of Nintendo himself, Shigeru Miyamoto to get the ball rolling. Here we are over 15 years later from the initial Red/Blue/Green Releases on the original Gameboy, and I can honestly say this has been the best generation for pokemon ever.

I believe that we have seen the best main line games, the best side games, and the best remakes all within this 8 or so year span.

Pokemon Diamond/Pearl/Platinum - Generation IV. This set of games brought us many new and interesting things. For me, I will always remember how impressive I thought the sprite work was. I was also highly impressed with how hard the game was for me.

Pokemon Ranger 1-3 - I never thought pokemon would work as an action rpg. I was wrong. Its fun, light, and was a blast. I enjoyed this trilogy a lot and hope to see a fourth on the 3ds.

Pokemon Mystery dungeon 2-3 ( 4 is on the 3ds so I dont count it) - Ahh mystery dungeons......though art a heartless bitch. A fun bitch, but heartless.

Pokemon Black/White - My favorite main line gen pokemon EVER. Yes I said it. For 2 main reasons. The pokemon type combinations they added exclusive to this gen like ice dragon or dark dragon, ghost fire, really cool things. The other was the fact that for the first time I felt the story was something I cared about.

Pokemon Black/White 2 - The sequels to my favorite main line gen pokemon games. Just as good and just as polished. I will always remember these games for the pokemon world tournament which allowed a player to battle every boss/gym leader/champion from the past gens, the achievement system which had over 400 medals and Black 2's exclusive hard mode, which lives up to the name.

Pokemon Conquest - I remember being very very skeptical about this game when it was announced. Game freak and koei working together on a strategy pokemon? NO WAY, how would this work and play? Then when I saw pictures of the game, and realized it was a strategy rpg with pokemon, I saw the gold. Pokemon I felt would always make a good SRPG because battles were already turn based, and the grid based gameplay would work well with the different pokemon types. I really hope they make a sequel.

Pokemon Heartgold/SoulSilver - The best remakes Gamefreak has ever done. Ever. Better than the remakes of of generation 1. They took the already stellar games of pokemon gold/silver used the Generation IV engine and made a great game better. They added new dungeons to the game, new legendaries, the difficulty was notched up, rematches with the gym leaders and elite 4 added to the already impressive post game content. Everything you'd ever want in a remake.


You tell me what other gen had this amount of top class pokemon?
There were some duds like pokemon dash, but overall the gen has been very very good to pokemon

What have been your favorite pokemon games of the gen? What have been your favorite pokemon moments? Do you even agree with this sentiment?

Let me know in the comments, tell me how you feel.


In conclusion,

You've been such a good friend,
I've known you since I don't know when.
We've got lots of friends but they come and go.
Even though we've never said it,
There's something that the two of us both know:

Together forever, no matter how long -
From now until the end of time.
We'll be together, and you can be sure
That forever and a day,
That's how long we'll stay,
Together and forever more.

Always gone that extra mile,
Depended on you all the while.
Even in the good and bad times you will see -
From now until our journey's end,
You know you can always count on me.

Together forever, no matter how long -
From now until the end of time.
We'll be together, and you can be sure
That forever and a day,
That's how long we'll stay,
Together and forever more.

No matter where our destiny leads,
I'll be there for you,
Always come through,
And that you can believe.

Ash: C'mon you guys, I've gotta get another badge!
Misty: You better figure out how to repay me for my broken bike, Ash Ketchum!
Brock: Oh no, not this again...
Pikachu: Pikachu...

Together forever, no matter how long -
From now until the end of time.
We'll be together, and you can be sure
That forever and a day,
That's how long we'll stay,
Together and forever more.

I love you pokemon
