    Actualy Gen 3 also recieved a lot of hatred, at least at the time they were released and some years after that but now it seems alot of people love it, it seems a gen gets a lot of love after a bunch of years have passed when at the time of the release they hated it. Also most of the people who hate the newer generations are the so called "Gen 1 Fans" (not gonna use the correct term).

    People don't hate any gen more than the others in my opinion. Every gen get's a lot of hate, but it also get's a lot of love.

    It's kinda like a cycle to me. Everyone loves the current gen while it's active, but as soon as the next gen comes out the previous one is awful. I remember BW being very popular, but now with XY out, BW was suddenly the worst gen ever.

    (Tbh, I still prefer G5 to G6)

    I personally think they're fine. I actually am not a fan of Gen 1 and 3 so much. I do think Gen 4 was "ok" though I admit Sinnoh and it's Pokemon weren't my favorites. I much enjoyed Gen 5 though. Many interesting Pokemon, the sequels, and mechanics like Seasons made it a favorite for me.

    I honestly don't see much hate OR love for gen 4. (I call it the "perfectly average generation.") Though, I don't see quite as much for gen 5 (my fav to this day) as much as disinterest nowadays. A lot of older gen fans are going to target the newest gen because either they were used to the last one or because it's relevant enough to get mad at. However, I don't see much of this "Newest Gen Hate" with XY. Probably with all the older 'mons and flashy lining.

    As Norzan and Rainbow said, it's a cycle. Believe it or not Gen III use to be the black sheep of Pokemon, now people are going "HOENN CONFIRMED!" whenever Hoenn is mentioned.



    In a couple of years people will be calling Gen IV will be "The Best Gen Evar!!!".

    Do the circle applies to all the hate on the new gen 4 and 5 designs are getting?

    I haven't seen much hate for Gen 4 but I have seen a decent amount for Gen 5. My only opinion on why generation 5 or the previous generation to the latest game would get hate is because sometimes it could get compared to a newer and better game? So some people might be comparing gen 5 to gen 6. Just a thought. I really don't hate any generation myself all have their up's and downs.

    i thought gen 4 was fairly boring; didn't like sinnoh much as a region, most of the new mons didn't interest me
    i thought the gen 5 storyline was a bit silly but i liked most of the new pokemon
    i don't like some of the new mechanics implemented in gen 6 but that's just me

    I can understand the hate for Gen4, but Gen5? With BW1 and BW2 combined, you get the best plot, most lengthy story, best antagonist (N), lots of things to do post-game (BW2 and its various features), a region based in New York City, various version exclusive features, and the Global Link with Dream World. I can understand hating the Gen5 ANIME, but the games were seriously epic - where is this hate coming from?
