    The whole Gen IV:
    - Evolve by location. If I were in Pokémon world, I'd pick a Fighting Pokémon and made it to smash the hell those moss/ice rocks in pieces, then pick them up and sell them at a high price.

    D/P/Pt:
    - Defuck Defog. Not so problematic in Route 10 when my Flying's moveset is not complete, but annoying when I'm going to Route 224.

    Only D/P:
    - The lack of fire types.
    - Amity Square. I share the pain of the guy at the lobby complaining for his banned Gyarados and Steelix. At least it was half-fixed in Platinum by allowing the starters to enter. (still ironic you can carry a giant 700 lb. turtle with a tree in its back and not a little, cute cat/fox)

    Only Pt: I'm trying to think and... nothing at all. (except by aforementioned Defog and location evolution)

    HG/SS:
    - No Vs Seeker. I hate you, Route 30 Rattatard.
    - BP for tutor moves.
    - Unobtainable Leafeon, Glaceon, etc.
    - Lyra (or Ethan if you're female player). Most useless gender counterpart ever. Too obvious she/he was forced into the plot. Better they wouldn't include her/him at all (like FR/LG or B/W)

    This. Can't believe I didn't mention this in my post. In Both HG/SS and D/P/Pt its a problem. Maybe because I train a team of 6 usually so my EXP is significantly lower, but still Its kind of terrible when Cynthia has a level 67 pokemon and yours are all 45..
    Also grinding on wild pokemon gets incredibly boring to me after a half hour.

    Also I didn't notice the slowness of the framerate either. Is Black and White faster? Cause if it is and I go back to play HG or something in the 4th gen again after playing B/W for months I'll notice.

    Slow frame rate? This is the first I've heard of it.

    Anyway, the only real thing that irks me is the changes to PC Box usage in HG/SS. It was just a little too unwieldy compared to DPPt.

    Not enough Pokemon, and a lot of really lackluster ones.
    An overkill of legendaries (still too many in B/W, ugh), which I dislike because I don't use legendaries that are not named Suicune.
    A shitty safari zone. DEFOG AND ROCK CLIMB UGH.

    Framerate, no gambling, and (in DPPt) slow-ass saving time. Palpark limit, too. Boner killer. Lotta sucky moves, too. Oh, and the protagonist designs were just... meh. Even worse in HGSS.

    Yeah, I know these are only for D/P, but anyways:
    -Amity Square. They wouldn't let Ninja, my Lucario, enter in when he was a Riolu TT_TT
    -The newspaper guy in Solaceon Town who expects you to get "Area Unknown" Pokémon in ONE DAY!!!!
    -Candice's gym. It was a living heck trying to get to her DX
    -The guy blocking my way to Sunyshore City at Lake Valor
    -Me getting Girafarig or Hippopota's cry stuck in my head
    -Stirring poffins. Hurts my hands.
    -Having your character walk in below freezing weather in just a scarf and a hat. It's probably worse with Dawn, though....
    -Lack of Fire types

    -Starts with D, ends with G, has "efo" in between, and is called Defog.
    -As everyone else has said, the slow framerate.
    -The abundancy of Bibarel in the Great Marsh.

    The surf speed is horrible, and saving time is worse, and fire types...everything else was ok.

    Platinum moves at a swift pace for me. o.o What is this supposed slow-frame-rate everyone is mentioning? I've played Emerald/Ruby, and Platinum, and never noticed a difference. ._.

    Anyways... I never played DP, and I had no problem in Platinum.

    I don't mind Defog. If there was a move to induce fog, there'd be even MORE bitching and whining and complaining. Defog is like Sweet Scent, too, that it lowers a foe's evasion. And whoops, gets rid of entry hazards too! Found out the hard way once. OTL

    But HGSS. Dear god, HGSS.
    -no VS Seeker or proper rematches. I stop playing HG after the E4, because I don't want to spend the rest of my life at the E4. ._.
    -copypasta Battle Frontier. Thank you, I already have the superior Platinum for that.
    -wasting such awesome designs for the Rocket Admins. D8< We had sexy-tush Proton, creepy weird guy Petral, hottie Cyrus-lookalike Apollo, and is-she-Silver's-Mom? Athena. And...that's it. We battle them, like, once each, and then boom. ._. Compared to what we saw in Platinum, that actually had a REASON for so many admins, it was a real huge letdown.

    ...that's about it. D8
    Signature is a WIP for the moment.
    For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.

    Definitely the lack of the VS. Seeker. I'm getting tired of rematching the Elite Four/Gym Leaders for experience.
