Best Pokemon Game

Recommended Posts

Having played everything in the first two generations, not playing for 10 years before playing Platinum, Heartgold and Black, I'd have to say the BEST is Platinum.

Whoa, what? Someone as old as I am saying Platinum instead of the originals? Is it crazytown, no, let me explain.

Crystal was probably my favourite game before I decided I had grown up too much to play. It had all sorts of neat little additions that B/R/G/S just didn't have, and went beyond Yellow. Platinum turned it up an entire notch. While no one can say the story was creative, it was certainly a little bit darker than the typical Pokemon game, showing us the Distortion World and Cyrus. The atmosphere was fun and the landscapes were varied, From the warmer southern towns to the cold, frigid north.

I was a diehard nostaglic "The old games were better" for a long time, even after playing Platinum, but the game gripped me in a way that it hadn't since I played Blue for the first time. I feel like the pace of the game, the story and the battle mechanics makes it an objectively better game than previous installments. (The first two generations had very little depth to the movepools, not that anyone didn't pack a 4x Fire move Charizard anyway. And the Physical/Special split opened up a lot more variety for a lot of classes that previously didn't have an appropriate STAB for their main attacking stat.)

Or maybe my 10 year hiatus turned Platinum into my "second first game" and is making me love it in the way most people only love the first Pokemon game they played?
