This definitely improved from Platinum onwards, but I have noticed that the overworld in the 4th Gen doesn't run as smoothly as it does in previous Gens, which is probably because of the pseudo-3D engine. There is a noticeable lag in big cities such as Hearthome and Goldenrod, for example.

    Defog. Extremely long saving time. few fire-types (at least in dppt) too many evolutions of existing pokemon. The battle motions were a lot slower. Team Galactic were annoying as hell. And the girl player character in HgSs calling you every 5 minutes talking about some incredibly pointless stuff that completely destroys the amazing Nostalgia mood while playing the remakes.

    DP is the only noticable example of this, I've found. Plat fixes some of the lag. HGSS flows absolutely smoothly in battle.

    As for overworld, it's nothing compared to a certain upcoming set of games. After switching back to SoulSilver, and even Diamond, the overworld feels very fluid.

    My only personal beef with fourth gen is that they didn't extend it another few years, and space out the games a bit more. Two years per game would have been nice.

    I hate the new Game Corner in HGSS. It takes forever to get coins because I suck at that game xD. The prizes aren't very good either.

    The prizes are exactly the same as DPPt, unless you meant all the prizes for the whole generation aren't very good.

    Easy. Way too many new pokemon and evolutions at once and they like gave you 20 legendaries in that one game.

    Crap, how the hell could I have forgotten that? Completely wasteful-ass piece of shit feature reminiscent of watching paint dry with no gusto. I must've piled that shit all over a dozen trees for Munchlax and Burmy before I gave up.

    It was boring. The story never really gripped me, and the new pokemon kinda sucked. It seemed like they were trying to pull from their roots too much.

    I don't know why GameFreak made it soooo hard to catch a Munchlax! It was easier to find Dialga the freakin' master of TIME!!!!

    Like many others said:
    -lack of VS seeker in HGSS
    -lack of fire types in DP
    -framerate
    -how in HGSS you don't see the other starter (if you chose Cyndaquil, you never see a Chikorita, so you can't look for it on the GTS)
    -in HGSS it is impossible to see Glameow, Stunky, Sinnoh starters, and some other Sinnoh exclusive pokes

    Another thing I hate is the Union Room, specifically for trading. Loading... enter room, loading other trainer sprite... talk to other trainer, loading conversation... ask for trade, loading trade screen...trade, load individual trade...

    That's horrible, I will never get my Pokemon to my transfer game in time for BW release.

    His dad smuggled those Pokemon's parents out of the Battle Tower and bred them for him. :P

    All jokes aside, I always did think that was a huge-ass cop-out. Oh, and good going mentioning Lyra having nothing to do with the storyline other than standing around making comments or handing items when she could've easily received the remaining starter and been actually fightable at least once.

    Levels in HG/SS. They had the chance to fix it, but... just ignored it completely. ._.

    Yeah, that's about it. Everything else (that I can think of) was absolutely perfect, imo.


    Thanks to Demotei of the SPPf for the perfect sprite~
