So this is not going to be a full review or something like that about the games, just things that I am now aware of about these games including their original titles. These things are just some negative aspects of the game in my opinion that I feel that if had beenintroduced today they would have been criticized or at raise an eyebrow or two at the very least. 1) The Gen 2 Pokemon. I really didn't realize up until my recent replay of the game that gen 2 Pokemon, the new Pokemon that are supposed to be introduced and get the focus in the games, are just.... missing. And also not distributed in a good way. There are way more gen 1 Pokemon throughout your playthrough up until you get to the Elite four. In the beginning of the game, your option of using a new Pokemon is very limited. And a lot of the new Pokemon that are available to you are for some reason really hard to find. You can get a Heracross before fighting Miltank, but you have to know to use Headbutt on spesific locations to get it. And even then it doean't learn any fighting moves until level 20 or something. You can get Natu and Chinchou- 2 new Pokemon with a nice typing, but you have to go back once you get Surf in order to find them. Meaning you are probably not going to be aware of them unless you actively seeked for them. Also just wow how many new Pokemon are either a trade evolution or a Pokemon with no evolution at all (or a baby Pokemon which is just a gen 2 Pokemon turning into a Gen 1 Pokemon). If you are looking to play with new Pokemon that can evolve, you are going to struggle a lot. 2) Gym leaders are... weird. The first, second, forth, and fifth gym leaders do not use ANY gen 2 Pokemon. And they could easily do so. The fact that Morty the Ghost type gym leader does not use Misdreavus buffles me, as well as the Bug type gym leader not using Heracross or Ariados. Also, it is funny to me how the fifth gym leader has only two Pokemon. 3)Houndour, Larvitar, Morkrow and other new Pokemon can only be found in the Post game region. I get the idea of distributing the new Pokemon throughout the two regions, but it just doesn't work in practice. The reason for that is the fact you will never use these Pokemon unless you are willing to grind for them a lot just for the sake of having them on your team- because other than that, once you get to Kanto you already have a well established team of six Pokemon and the Kanto region is basically a cake walk. So they may as well just put these new Pokemon to be available throughout Johto instead of placing them in Kanto and giving the player no real reason to ever use them in their playthrough. A bit of a rant I know, but I really I just wanted to share these points because these games have been my favorite Pokemon games of all time. Pokemon Silver was my very first Pokemon game. So it's just interesting to look back without the nostalgia glasses and pick on some of the flaws I never payed attention to back then. I wonder if other people had similar realization about their nostalgic Pokemon games.
