These kids have it too damn easy

I remember back in my day, In the days of RSE and FRLG, to catch the Regis, I had to decipher fucking braille. Now this was before the days of high speed internet, where everything is at your fingertips. Nope, I had to buy a fucking guidebook and use the transliteration to decipher the braille.
I got a piece of paper and painstakingly searched for the corresponding braille symbol before I got my message to catch Wailord and Relicanth. That's not all after that, I had to find the chambers, then decipher more braille to figure out how to open the doors to actually catch the fucking Regis.
Now, in B2W2, everything is given to you. You just walk into the underground ruins. The instructions are in plain English. 9 steps right ? steps down. WTF? What kind of easy ass puzzle is this? Then you just walk up to Regirock. No using flash in the middle. No running around the edge of the chamber.
It doesn't help that when you get the Iron and Ice Key, you don't even have to do a puzzle. Just walk in and catch. ARE YOU SERIOUS, GAME FREAK? NO THINKING!
I remember when you actually had to search for legendaries. Remember how Groundon and Kyogre's chambers moved around the Hoenn map? Remember when you were given no hints as to the whereabouts of the Legendary Birds? Nowadays, they just give you the Swords of Justice in the middle of Routes. Seriously, these kids have no challenge. I hope that X and Y bring back the challenge to Pokemon.
