Well that took way longer than expected.

My Pokemon game of Huzon region: We are introduced to the Pokeworld by Professor Delonix (Gulmohur Tree) He asks: Boy or Girl Rival is also the same gender as us, Girl becomes: Second Rival and Rival-girl becomes: First Gym-Leader After it he also asks us our Starter: Spinhog (I know we have Chespin but still it will be cool) a Grass/Warrior Hedgehog (who is not an Armadillo) (Edgy+ Masculine) Ferrechar a Fire/Beast Ferret (Cool) Beavittle a Water/Spirit Beaver (Feminine) All have same HP and Speed just differ in Spinhog--> Galerquill--> Hedgeknight (Physical), Ferrechar--> Pyrret--> Minkstrel (Average), Beavittle--> Castarnia--> Desmemaid (Special) Fighting and Warrior are similar types both stronger than Beast and Dark who in turn are both stronger than Psychic and Spirit who fill complete the circle. The only difference Warrior is actually Resistant to all Bug, Poison and Flying and Beast isn't immune to Spirit like Dark is to Psychic The game starts with me waking up, however the second rival/my neighbor comes to me and asks me to deliver an Orb to Professor Delonix and while on our way we are attacked by Team-Grim but a brave Pokemon comes to our rescue (the starter we chose) but he's hurt terribly we have to take him to the Pokemon center (like Froakie in X and Y anime). We find Professor there and he takes the Orb, the Pokemon rests, the first Rival/Professor's son is an arrogant brat who is angry about why the father didn't ask him. As Nurse Joy heals our Pokemon, the rival asks us for a Pokemon Battle, we battle and beat him, after a while our Friend comes forward and we beat her too. It's easy, I choose Spinhog who beats the First Rival by Warrior moves on Ferrechar (unless it goes for Fire moves) and then beats Second Rival by Grass moves on Beavittle (unless it goes for Spirit moves). The First gym-Leader (who becomes our Rival if we chose to be the Girl) is Ground/Rock/Steel type based on our starter choice (weaker than us, Grass--> Ground, Fire--> Steel, Water--> Rock, she explicitly asks our Starter choice) The Next gym is stronger type than first and so on until we reach the 7th type Dragon and Fairy the 8th gym is headed by our Father in Wizard and Mom in Sorcerer. But before entering the Dragon type gym, we need to unlock it through a quest, Catch multiple Eevees on Route 101, 103, 116 and/or 128, evolve them in 19 not Normal (Standard types -Normal and Dragon + 3 I introduced above) type Eeveelutions and submit them in Someone else's PC, once all 19 have been done, the 1 already present Eeevee will evolve into Wyverneon the Dragon Eeveelution (no Normal as Eevee itself is a Normal type), this along with one more Eeveelution (my choice will be Sylveon or Glaceon to beat the gym) in our Party will allow to get inside the gym. Eevee evolves into Wyverneon only if it is in Someone else's PC along with all other of it's Evolution in the same Box. Team-Grim is the Evil team of Pokemon Wizard and Pokemon Sorcerer. We have to use Surf to reach Island of Amusement where Team-Grim is trying to capture the Legendary Tetrad (Swords of Justice like only Cats instead of Ungulates, Primary type/Fighting Cats: Warrior, Beast, Spirit, Ghost) you capture them and then release them free. Beavittle line learns Surf at Level 28, otherwise capture a Water type. We have to use Canopy-Chase (Grass move like Surf) to clear off path in Rainforest of Art to reach it's center where Team-Grim is trying to capture the Legendary Tetrad spirits (Mew and Celebi like Fairy/Secondary type Pixies: Grass, Fire, Water, Electric) you capture them and then release them free. Spinhog line learns Canopy-Chase at Level 28, otherwise capture a Grass type. We have to use Magma-cover (Covers the user team from Magma and helps walking on it) to walk on Hot-Magma path of Mount-Flames to reach the Peak where Team-Grim is trying to capture the power of the Box-Legendaries. Ferrechar line learns Magma-cover at Level 28, otherwise capture a Water type. Team-Grim wants to get Filthy Rich that's it, for this they want power and the hunger of power has driven them to these lengths, in the midst they also awaken the Evil-Box Legendaries while we have defeated the eighth gym (Who is Our Dad or Mom depending on the Version of the game), they reek havoc, to beat them we have to take help, A trainer Mark who had lots of Battles with us comes along to help as well. The Strongest Legend: Fairy/Fighting Gryphon Box-Cover legends are the once awaken by Team Grim: Pokemon Wizard: Dark/Psychic Gryphon, Pokemon Sorcerer: Dark/Psychic Gryphon To wake the third legendary we need to walk through the Forest of Life, to reach it's center we have to use all 3 moves Surf, Canopy-Chase, Magma-cover and then battle and capture the third legend and then we battle the Box-Legend and their Clones made by Team-Grim but we don't use our team rather the third legend so 1 vs 6 Pokemon, but to defeat the Grunts and the Boss we have to use our team and our Rivals and the first leader show up as well to help us, Mark in the meantime is trying to beat the Legendaries and their clones but is unsuccessful, so I who commands the Third legendary some to his aid, however I have to leave the rest of my team behind, the Clones disintegrate and The Evil legendaries aren't actually evil just angry and when they try to destroy every thing, two last battles ensue, Wizard: White Gryphon is used by us to control the Green Gryphon, while our Team control the Red Gryphon once both White and Green try to rescue us out, Sorcerer: Wizard Red/Green switch. Red Gryphon is the Cover legend of Wizard and Green is the Cover legend of Sorcerer. The White Gryphon (Trio-Master) helps our Rivals in the meantime in holding Team Grim for us once the second battle ensues between our Team and the Red/Green legendary while Green/Red legendary whom we defeated using the White is trying to hold the place. The Officers reach (Finally) and capture Team Grim the legends bid us goodbye and luck. Our Rival still insists to prove himself stronger than us, he challenges us, right in the Middle of the Forest, and we uncover the Story of 4 Pokemon leaders who helped the White Gryphon make the world a better place, the Brave mirrors us, the Hardworking our friend (Girl who we could've been), the Cunning our rival, the Wise is the first Leader (who could've been our rival had we chose the girl). We beat the Elite-4 after it: Fighting, Psychic, Dark, Ghost type Champion: Mark is having a varied and Powerful team Rival challenges us one last time before we are registered by Mark as the new champion. Professor Delonix chides his Son for display of a lack of Sportsmanship, but then he too is proud of his child like both our Parents are (one of them is the 8th Leader). The First Leader and us have a last friendly match and a sweet kiss on cheek by the Girl to the Boy while our friend develops a fancy for the Rival. The Character designs I would pick is: Callum/Victor hybrid for us: Red in Wizard and Green in Sorcerer (darker color than the box legend) but a Hazel-Brown in Wizard and Dark-Blue in Sorcerer if we are a girl. Serena/Gloria hybrid for our friend: Light-Amber-Yellow in Wizard and Light-Blue in Sorcerer but takes on Pink in Wizard and Light-Green if we are a girl (lighter color than the box legend). Rival boy Blue/Hop hybrid: Dark-Green in Wizard and Red in Sorcerer but as a Gym Leader he wears Dark-Blue in Wizard and Hazel-Brown in Sorcerer Rival girl Leaf/Shauna hybrid: Light-Blue in Wizard and Light-Amber-Yellow in Sorcerer but as a Rival she wears Light-Green in Wizard and Pink in Sorcerer

Regarding the gym leaders: I think there is a line in the Pokemon manga (released around the same time as gen 1) that basically had Brock saying "Oh, you don't have any badges, well I will use these Pokemon against you." So I guess there is a certain number of teams each Gym leader uses based on the number of badges you have.

Despite all flaws, despite not thinking gen 1 are good games - and you'll call me crazy... but I feel the gen 1 story is actually the best? Or - I should say it's the one I _like the most..._ simply because it's the most personal one. Yeah, there's team Rocket, sure - but mainly it's about the journey you and your rival undertake, and how you and him undertake it completely differently, and thus had different experiences and sentiments. It's personal, and that makes it feel much more _potent_ - even if there _actually_ isn't much to it at all. Nothing wrong with higher stakes in the later games... but they also totally removed almost any personal note as well. It's all just watching _other_ people go through their little stories (which mostly aren't even written that well at all), while you're simply the errand boy/girl who does the clobbering. And, y'know... why should I even _care_ if Team [InsertNameHere] destroys the world if my character is a nobody who cares about nothing and has no connection with anyone or anything?

X and y have the worst story by far when you consider when the games were made. In fact, the only thing that saves these games were the new Features introduced by the 3ds and the introduction of mega evolution . The plot is really dumb, Lysandre just snaps out of nowhere( I mean you could tell he was gonna be the evil guy, but his character development was beyond terrible ) and decides to destroy the world or grant everyone eternal life ( depending on game). And don’t get me started with the rivals...

One hero was idealistic and wanted to bring in a better world, where as the other was a realist who valued the truth of reality and wanted to bring about a good world he could except. The problem with "better" and idealists is that it is never satisfied and rarely considers the practicality of their ideals. Idealists are a step away from zealots, and one reason i like N is that he is grounded enough to not go fully into zealotry the way the grunts do.

The thing i never thought about and as someone whos played every Pokémon game except SwSh, is that I get the feeling these games released generationally and aimed more at kids than adults so all of the issues with them could be chocked up to that. Kids don't really care about story that much and I've noticed this first hand after having my own kid. Most stuff for them is written so badly but it doesn't matter because they like the colorful characters and because of that games/shows are mainly geared toward toy sales.

Black and White is still the best one, in my eyes. Everything about it worked, from the questioning of ethics regarding Pokemon battles, the Unova region, and all the way to the final battle with the surprise and everything. It felt like every game after that one fell way short in terms of storytelling.

I don’t think Pokémon has Final Fantasy level of stories, but when I say good I mean good comparatively. Also Pokémon tells a story unlike PacMan thus you can analyze them to an extent. I don’t compare Platinum’s story to Final Fantasy VII because FF is much more story driven, but I do compare platinum to Ruby and Sapphire because they both go to a similar extent to how much the story is involved in the main game.

Silver hates the weak, because his dad left to form Team Rocket, people who pretended to be a strong group but was easily ploughed through by a single kid from Pallet Town. Basically, daddy left and in the end it meant nothing because he didn't achieve shit.

It's my theory that Pokemon Red and Blue/Green are actually set in Post-WWII Japan. That also happens to be the time when the Yakuza started to take control of various sectors of Japan ... including the casinos and even parts of the government .... plus Lt. Surge is literally called "The Lightning American". Also, Red and Blue both don't have dads. And Mr. Fuji supposedly used to be part of horrible experiments but softened after the war. Vermillion city is also a "Port town", which is where American naval bases were located after the war, so that America could watch over Japan and make sure that American presence was strong (oddly enough, this went on to greatly influence Japanese culture, especially music, and in some ways you could say that WWII is the reason that Jpop, Jrock, and Japanese-style jazz are a thing. But yeah, post-WWII Japan is literally the time period where the Yakuza took advantage of the economy being terrible, and basically started to make a shit ton of money and gained government positions and stuff.

Ultra Sun and Moon were my favorite games purely objective wise. The way I played provided a nice challenge and the humor was greatly appreciated. The music is also really damn good in Gen 7. Lusamine is right up my alley with her sadistic nature, as well as her entire family dynamic with Mohn being her husband who lost his memories of his life.

57:00 an often overlooked aspect of N is that whenever you battle him, his Pokémon are all from the area you meet him at their highest natural level, so it is assumed that he meets and befriends them and then releases them as he goes. This also implies he meant something other than training his Pokémon when he said he needed to train more

Interesting take on Sun and Moon, but we both agree that X and Y is kind of garbage all around (in terms of story). But also, I do have massive nostalgia bias for the Gen 5 games. Although Gen 4 was technically my first, Gen 5 were the games that honestly got me into RPG's and gaming in general. Coming back to those games now... yeah... the story does have a lot of hiccups... but honestly I think people take those hiccups and exaggerate them. Gen 5 just did so much right and imo had the most effort put into it... and it really shows.

I've heard that rokemon ruby and saphire's plot was based off of things that were going on in japan. People started draining certain places so that they could fix the famine that was going on. People protested. So they wanted to explain it to kids Please do look it up I know nothing about it I just wanted to say that the ridiculous plot was actually based off of real events

I don't know that Diantha's battle music is weak, I think just musically it ranks top 4. Which I would rank them all as: 1: VS Cynthia 2: VS Wallace/Steven 3: VS Lance Gen2 4: VS Diantha 5: VS Champion Gary (Gen 3 remake; Gen1 is good, just very aged) 6: VS Alder 7: VS Leon 8: VS Iris 9: Vs Kukui/Hau The Music VS the "Champion" in Sun/Moon and US/UM is very basic and is a theme we've heard since the start of the series, and while very nostalgic, doesn't really bring anything new to the table. If we wanna talk about Basic, Leon sounds like he has standard Stadium fans in the background that clash with the music, and while the Dynamax theme is great, it isn't a part of the Champion music. Alder has some good music, but I think it suffers from following up the Cynthia theme. Iris following that up is just not special at all. Comparatively, Diantha has some strong music that I don't think gets fully appreciated because most people just absolutely destroy her. Gen 1, 2, and 3 are all strong, with Gen3 being the best of the trio. And clearly Cynthia just has some strong music that builds tension for the strongest Champion in the series.
