Gen 4. HG/SS are still the gold standard pokemon game and Platinum is also really good.
BW2 was also really good but Unova had issues in its region layout and pokemon designs that stopped me from enjoying it as much. Don't know if I'd rate it over gen 2, maybe 3, but it's definitely not the worst like some people will say Gen 6-8 are all worse than it is.

5 > 4 > the rest > 8
7 is on the bottom for me. I don't know how they f***ed up Pokemon so badly.

It's not 5. BW is such a bad introduction to Unova, and BW2 is better but still only worth playing once.

I am just four power wands away from an antigravity lozenge!
Still waiting for my username to happen.

I mean, it's not awful if you like being railroaded on a straight path and being stopped every two steps with inane cutscenes.

Oh how the tides have turned with Gen 5. I'm glad people are finally able to appreciate the Pokemon games at their peak.
Curse the fiends, their children too.
And their children, forever true.

B/W pokemon diversity at the early game is garbage. B2/W2 fix this well, but every time the mandatory pokestar studios tutorial comes up I just cant bother and stop playing.

Sorry TC. 5 was the worst.
Have you played the last 3 gens? You could combine them together and they would still suck more than Gen 5.
