Well, in comparison, I will agree that the first impressions of Gen 6 were universally better than Gen 5. I love Zekrom, Snivy, Oshawott and Tepig, but it took me a good while before I finally warmed up to them. The same goes for most of Gen 5. My first reaction to 90% of them were "oh my god, this is awful", but now I pretty much love all of them but a select few.
Gen 6 clicked immediately. I don't like Fennekin, and the legendaries look kinda like clones of other legendaries (the bird looks like a flying Groudon and the elk looks like Acreus+Dialga), but I liked them overall on day one, which is not something I can say about Gen 4 or 5... or 3.
Thats understandable, I mean we all have a different view of 5th gen. I personally didn't find the older ones bland. I felt they kept the good designs in and left the bad/lazy ones out. With 5th gen they just didn't seem to bother picking out the good ones from the bad ones as they left both in. Felt like they were rushing to make new Pokemon designs to meet the quota needed make a gen like the 1st one. I couldn't find a Pokemon (besides my starter) that I liked until I reach Castelia City.
Not sure I understand. They left what bad/lazy ones out of Gen 1? And you can't tell me things like Ditto (as much as I love him) and Voltorb/Electrode aren't bland or lazy. And some evolutions (this is also true of later gens) are just 3 of one Pokemon. Most of them were just colored animals.
A lot of gen 5's are very intricate and have crazy basis (like Nazca lines). If anything, it looks like they took MORE time. But people see things like "icicles that look like ice cream" and "garbage" and call them lazy, but I mean, I don't see how those are lazier than Seel or Grimer.
The reason why I don't want to go back with BW1/2 just yet is cause mentally I associate it as "bad" as crazy as that sounds. Its the gen that burnt me out from playing Pokemon but honestly that might have been my fault since at the time I was obsessed with finding Shinies which was time consuming. I couldn't find a shiny Solosis after all the time I spent trying to and it burnt me out. I want to go back to a past game (such as Soulsilver which I've yet to finish) so that I could get comfortable again with the series. I was thinking of going back to Sapphire or Emerald at one point but with a possible remake in the future I'm holding off on doing that. I know the newer games offer more with story and animation and such but for now I'm more concerned with how I'll get back into Pokemon games.
I can understand that feel of getting burnt out with a game. Especially with doing something as redundant as looking for shinies. Sometimes you just gotta step away and reintroduce yourself.
Yeah the evidence I'll admit is weak. Its just a little observation I made for now with what little we know about them.
Oh, I know. It's just funny because I keep seeing that whole "psychic" thing EVERYWHERE. Like people are convinced it is the case.
And maybe it is, but it's just crazy to see everyone hung up on a purple effect.

Pretty sure the blockiness is on purpose. It looks like the past games, but literally, just 3D. Look at the textures. Look like the flat ones from previous gens. I think it's just meant to look like if you took a sprite Pokemon game and added another dimension, as opposed to trying to look like, say, Mystery Dungeon.
A whole day hasn‘t passed since the announcement and people already ask why X/Y aren‘t for Wii U.
Seriously, this is one of the reasons I didn‘t want them to use 3D models in past games, people would demand console RPGs instead.
Well, I mean, no matter what they did, people were going to complain.
Sprites - WHY NOT 3D?
3D - WHY NOT CONSOLE?
Console - WHY NOT 3DS?
DS - WHY THIS AGAIN?
3rd gen remakes - WHY NOT 6th GEN?
6th gen - WHY NOT 3rd GEN? WHY SO RUSHING GEN 5?
I personally was more annoyed by the fact that not even an hour after the Nintendo Direc video finished, people were complaining that it was not going to be on DS. Because you know, DS just didnt have enough Pokemon games.
Are you serious? After all that whining for BW2 to be a 3DS game, people wanted it for DS? Oh man.
