do you guys also get an existential crysis whenever you start thinking about past games you played in your childhood?they've been getting more and more frequent recently and I don't know how to deal with it all

It comforts me that everybody collectively feels the same towards these things. No ideas, prejudice, or even knowing each other is required. Just pure, raw feels reminiscing about what's good about life, and that's enough to connect people.I wish I could hug, you bastards.

>>523606065People claiming exp share made them over-leveled are full of it, there's a stint after gym 6(?) where you start to be higher level than the enemies but Leon catches up with the player's levels and is generally higher levelI think where the divisiveness over modern Pokemon is with some older people is they want the games to be more single player focused again; in the newer games there is a ton of development time going into multiplayer features when in the first games it was kind of an afterthought.>>523612760I used to cut the grass where Chansey spawns into a plus shape because I thought it increased the chances of it appearing.

>>523628215I wouldn't know about Rescue Team DX, the original two groups of games (PMD1 - Red & Blue Rescue Teams, PMD2 - Explorers of Time, Darkness & Sky) are really solid although PMD1's a bit archaic in its ways. After that the series went kinda downhill, Gates of Infinity is complete dog shit and while some people like Super Mystery Dungeon others don't it's a pretty divided game. The plots though are generally better than the main series which isn't saying much but at least it's something.

>>523605632>>523606065>>523627825Exp share is really only an issue if you only use 6 pokemon. It's actually pretty helpful if you swap out pokemon. Of course, it should still be optional. Having several options to the exp share would be nice, too.

The third was pretty shit compared to the first two, but if you don't take the first two into account, its okay. Super Mystery dungeon is basically if Gate of Infinity was better, but its still not nearly as good as the first two.No idea on the remakes of the first games as a whole but what I played via Yuzu and gave up after several crashes didn't really feel that much better then Super.

>>523628165>they will never be toppedThey already were by Gen 4 and 5 you nostalgiacuck.

>>523635354>Gen 5 only has like 4 or 5 good tracks.5 was nothing but good tracks faggot.

>>523654468Thank god.>Dude wouldn’t a Pokemon game with no wild Pokemon be SICK?

>>523600718Fuck yea pokemon music thread

>>523600718A few years back I took a high dose of shrooms and was playing in a friendly TF2 goldenrod city server listening to GSC ost. I ended up putting this one on repeat because it put me most at ease. It gives me extra good vibes whenever I hear it now.

>>523654468>>523654975Oh no, the worst kind of Pokemon game isn't going to happen again! Oh no!

>>523654468I would like to see another dedicated effort, but I don't think Pokemon Company is going to make another game.

>>523600718Best track in the game.I like this remix, does a good job stirring up the nostalgic memories of it. Especially the start, is like remembering an old

>>523606068Gave me chills. Who did this? I tried looking for it on youtube but I can't find it.

>>523638434Nah man, they rebuilt the center for all the trainers who traveled there not knowing the whole island was destroyed

>>523656597>The one Nurse Joy and Chansey forever on graveyard shift

>>523601084>Scyther>On SundaysOk retard


i loved gen4 and its music, all due respect, but NOTHING will ever top this right fucking

I haven't even payed attention to Pokemon in a while. Last I heard there was some DLC for a new game or some shit with following mons. What's happening with all this? DLC and Pokemon just sounds weird. Though I guess it doesn't matter. Not like I'll ever play it.

I love how low key everything is in Jhoto, no rivials every 2 steps of the way to tell you how great you are. Lets you discover the compact region on your own for the most part. No baddies trying to take over the world with Godmon, in fact the bad guys are washed up and lost without their leader

>>523657340Patrician Choice right there user, that's one of few things BW has over BW2.

>>523600718Why do the first and second gen games (and their remakes, especially HG/SS) feel like they have an underlying aura of sadness? Especially a lot of the music, has a melancholic feel to it. Is it just my nostalgia goggles wishing I was young again?


>>523605632>battle resort will be a 30 dollar DLC>each event like the old inn or oaks parcel will be 10 dollars each>10 dollar azure flute teleports you to Mt.Coronet when you play it and Arceus just joins your party

>>523631847Is there a way to connect a VBA Gold/Silver/Crystal ROM to Pokemon Stadium 2? How so? used to use the VS Seeker just to hear this tune once I'd beaten every sailor in the game.

For me, and this is just my personal preference, Gen 1 all the way to 5 are just great. I love them. Each flawed but wonderful in their own way.

Why did gamefreak have to turn into such shit bros?

>>523635673I was 11 and Gen III was out and Pokemania was dead but then HGSS and Platinum sucked me back in

>>523657889The original Azure Flute never released at all, so even getting one would be an improvement.

>>523657856Combination of nostalgia and the games still going for the small town Japan vibe. I think the reason Pokemon nostalgia hits so hard, is cause like some other user said, unlike a lot of other older games you can revisit and still get something out of, these games are incredibly easy now. They lose a lot if you aren't some naive kid, before Internet was super rampant, trying silly rumours with no idea what shit evolves into or where you'll end up finding different Pokemon. You aren't just nostalgic for the game, you're nostalgic for that exact moment.

>>523658380Same. I grew up on Crystal and Ruby but gen 4-5 ended up being my favorite gens. Black/White 2 is one of the best Pokémon games of all time and you should really try it if you skipped it.

>>523658407Money. Gen 5 was the last time they tried and sold the less compared to any other gen, Now they have the recipe for success on pandering to Nostalgia, rotating features which may or may not remain on next gen with the possibility of them being gutted or half-assed and always a brand new Shiny Gimmick which they will push and then take out regardless of the reception to make way for the next gimmick.


>>523645432How about you give the fucking examples, you sperg?

>>523658647I hated how every tree in this game was exactly the same. GSC has tall trees and short headbutt trees. They could have at least staggered them in HGSS

>>523659194Put a lot of effort into gen 5 and when it underperformed he decided to just streamline an already easy game into what it is now.

>>523652485You have two options:1. Get a DS or 3DS and then get the games2. emulate

>>523659194Masuda was super excited on BW development, he even posted daily on his blog about all the new stuff of the game, then people started complaining because you could only play with the new 150+ pokémon and had to wait till post-game or use the dream world thing to use the old mons.

>>523659432>>523659343Damn, that's a shame. Still have my copy of pokemon black. Never picked up Black 2, but I would have if I had money at the time.

>>523604876Poketch is replaced by a Rotom smartwatch that talks endlessly

>tfw still haven't figured out how to homebrew my 3DS

>>523659570Fuck that rotom. At least I got it to call me master.

>> literally cannot fuck it up

>>523642607Kanto > Hoenn > Sinnoh > Johto >>> Unova

>>523659180Despite all of that, they only managed to pull in 600,000 more sales for XY and then lost sales on SM.

>>523659979Those losses aren't that big when you consider just how small Alola feels when compared to Kalos and even ORAS, like there are so many things which go unused which they could make something neat with it, like golf course or that giant vortex on the Lake of Sunne/Moone, even the "Ultra Changes" didn't gave that same feeling BW2 gave when compared to BW.

>>523604485>>523607137>we'll never go back to thisIt sucks seeing the series die like it did. 3d models are souless compared to sprites, the music is souless, everything is just a shallow husk meant to milk money from the new generations.

>>523659909You meanJohto > Sinnoh = Unova > Alola if GF was still competent > Hoenn > Kanto > Alola >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Kalos >>>>>>> Galar

>>523638056some sites block one but not the other

Do you think zoomers will have their equivalent of Pokemon, some near-universally enjoyed game(s) they will fondly look back on when they get older? Will there be nostalgiafagging for Yokai Watch or Fortnite or w/e decades from now? makes me want to fall asleep crying.

>>523663662We're seeing it already with Minecraft.

why are shinies in stadium 2 so fucked up?

>>523601084>hours>not using the Pokemon March music to increase encounter rates>not finding a Pinsir, Scyther, Butterfree or Beedrill in a few minutes, False Swiping it, catching it, then ending the contest early, shitting on that faggot Ed who couldn't catch big pokemonDo you even catch bro?

>>523664179I grew up with RBY but still get nostalgic for Minecraft. The OST gives me goosebumps.

>>523659018>Black/White 2Can anyone articulate why? I played through BW and thought it was lacking in a lot of departments. Then I played BW2 a year or two later and kept getting dejavu. Felt like I was playing the same game over again.

>>523664179that was more of a late millennial thing, wasn't it? we still get threads here reminiscing about the alpha

>>523658407Its less about Gamefreak and more about the Pokemon company in general going to shit.Back in the days when things were still building up there was a lot less to worry about. Gamefreak could make their games, there was merch running inbetween and the anime also had more freedom.But nowadays everything has to be streamlined. The anime has to be ready when the game is ready and the game has to be ready when the merch is ready. Which means that Gamefreak have a very limited amount of time to actually work on the game. If something fucks up the production it impacts all of Pokemon and you can't just delay everything so cuts have to be made.

>>523666079>alpha era music playing>no sound aside from the distant trickle of water and the faint sounds of your mining and collecting

>>523666242BW2 ain't just an enhanced edition it's an actual sequel, not only has a new dex and a few new areas it also has lot of stuff to do like Pokestar studios, PWT, the reworked Battle Tower/Tree, the post-game trainer battles, the legend hunts, Hidden Grottos, the Join Avenue, like there a lot of stuff to do regardless if you liked breeding, battles, exploring the region, they took BW and improved in a lot of stuff, sure story took a dive but they improved on everything else.

i want kids so bad brosi know i can never relive my childhood but i want to raise kids with an even happier childhood than mine, i want them to have their own precious memories they'll cry about decades latertoo bad i'll never find a wife or a good enough job to raise a family

>>523658407Because genwunfags with money got filtered by BW.

>>523648992Don't be sad that it's over, user

>>523635673Just skip all the skippable trainers. Being underleveled makes the games fun again.
