Why people should Generation V? Or give it a chance.
Generation V, is my second favourite generation and the first who attempted to change Pokémon, but is so underrated by everyone. Why?
In the Anime:
- Ash, Jessie and James, receive a redesign in this series, they look more detalied.
- Sadly, since Brock made his mind, he’s no longer traveling with Ash, but Cilan and Iris are good protagonist too.
- First series, Cassidy, Butch and Professor Namba are absent, which in my general opinion is good, because honestly I didn’t like them anyway and I’m not gonna to miss them.
- Jessie, James and Meowth got promoted, so starting from season 14, they do more chores, rather than just kidnap Pikachu and con people.
- Since Jessie, James and Meowth appear less often in the anime, the mechanic of the series changes a bit.
- This season is full of heart-warming moments, (some of them even made me cry) people should pay it more attention.
- The “Who’s That Pokémon?” section returns in this season.
- Cilan’s evaluation hour.
- Cilan and Iris are awesome!
- Pikachu learns a new move in this season.
- Ash’s Charizard returns in this season.
- This is the Pokémon series with the most quantity of Rivals and some of them need to receive love, for example we got: Trip, Ash’s main rival in Unova, Stephan a tactic fighter, that often people get his name wrong, Bianca, who is very much, like her game counterpart and she loves her Pokémon very much, Burgundy, Cilan’s Rival, a girl who wishes to be better somnelier/conosseiour than Cilan, because she misunderstood Cilan’s conosseiour hour, Georgia, Iris’ Rival, a girl who wants to be a Dragon Hunter and defeat her, Cameron, a rushed and forgetfull guy, who wants to be the best Champion of all times and Virgil, the youngest son of a Pokémon rescue squad, who wants to prove himself to his dad and older brother.
- Starting from this Season, some Pokémon start to do what their Pokédex says about them. An example Litwick and Lampet, suck the soul of human and Pokémon, like their Pokédex says.
- Seeing N interacting with other trainers, is very heart-warming.
- I love the Pokédex of this season.
- This is the first time, we got a Legendary Pokémon following Ash and friends in this season, in this time: Meloetta, she’ll be succeded by Zygarde (Squishy) in the XY Series.
- The Japanese Openings and Endings, are just awesome!
- This is the series Ash captured the most quantity of Pokémon in a region, Ash captured: Unfezant, Oshawott, Pignite, Snivy, Scraggy, Leavanny, Palpitoad and Krookodile.
- After a long time, this is the third series (Original Series and Advanced Genration), where a Pokémon that will debut in the next generation has major roles: (Helioptile, Gogoat and Noivern)
In the Videogames:
- You have three rivals this time, Cheren a 10 year old kid, Bianca a 14 year old girl, who her parents, doesn’t let her out and N a 14 year old guy, who talks so fast and thinks Pokémon are “slaved” by humans.
- This is the second time a rival of yours, is linked/related with a criminal organization, Silver was linked to Team Rocked, since he is Giovanni’s son. In this time is N, who is son of Ghetsis, leader of Team Plasma.
- This is the first time, we have a female professor.
- This is the second time you can actually add the information of all regional starters, since your rivals have the starters.
- There’s a plot twist at the end of the game, about Team Plasma’s ambitions.
- One of your rival captures a Legendary, prompting you to catch that legendary counterpart as well.
- Instead of fighting with the Champion, you fight with your Rival, if you challenge the league a second time, you fight the champion.
- This is the second region visited after a time, with a different protagonist. The first was Kanto.
- Unova is the region, with the most quantity of Gym Leaders, we have Cilan, Chilli, Cress, Lenora, Burgh, Elesa, Clay, Skyla, Brycen, Iris, Drayden, Roxie, Marlon and Cheren. 14 GYM LEADERS!!!
- You actually explore the entire Unova region in Pokémon Black and White 2.
- Some Gym Leaders change in Pokémon Black and White 2.
- Team Plasma returns more powerful than ever in this sequel.
- The second time, a rival from the prequel is a Gym Leader and the second, we have different Champions.
This generation, deserves more love!
