Did you prefer the anime or the games?

    Pretty simple just rate each generation on which you preferred the best, I'm not personally counting remakes but go nuts

    For me
    OS anime>RBY
    OS anime (Johto)<GSC
    DP>=DPPt So I like both with a slight preference towards DP
    BW anime>BW games
    BW anime<<<<<BW2
    XY anime<XY games
    SM anime=SM games
    SM anime>=USUSM same as DP

    PorcelainVulpix justice for johto

    I might get kicked out of the fandom for this, but I pretty much prefer all of the games over their anime counterpart except for gen 1. I never actually go to play gen 1 games but I did play FireRed and Lets Go Pikachu and even though I enjoy Lets Go, I just find the Kanto region to be boring and plain in the games and OS Kanto is more interesting to me.

    Idk getting through Hoenn felt like a struggle to me and I had to force my way through and despite my ranking I kinda felt that was about USUM. Both games got boring, especially Hoenn real quick; remake and original.

    I honestly cant relate :/ I replayed Emerald like 500 times. I loved the Hoenn region and the pokemon but I didnt really care for the SM games because I prefer the region set up over the island set up, I didnt care for Rotom dex and I prefer gyms over trials but I do like the plot. I did find the XY games to be kind of boring but they were so visually pleasing.

    XY games were definitely way better.

    I thought Kalos was the best region with the third best music. I still hum Lumiose city sometimes. I liked Sun and Moon for mostly Lillie and the Aether family and I thought it brought back that difficulty in Pokemon that's been lacking since DP.

    The games because you had a choice in which of the 2 protagonists you want to play as except RBY not to mention how you want to customize your perfect team. In the anime everyone are toned down except Ash not to mention everything in the battles are scripted whether we like it or not.

    One thing I will give the games over the anime is that Lillie's story is slightly more impactful in the original games than the anime. I enjoyed how the anime turned Lusamine's verbal and mental abuse into neglect and gave Lillie a scarring childhood but overall it was more interesting and explored better in the games.

    It remains on default on games to me.

    Especially BW. Superior story in the games that was much deeper than previous iterations...but a superior pile of burning **** in the anime.

    shoz999 Do you wanna try a good Tapu Cocoa? My treat.

    I find the games easily better than the anime. Everything in the games, from it's characters, to the region, to the themes, to both the big and small stories just feel so connected whereas the anime feels more like a bloated take on the games. Similar to the Adventures manga, I suppose for this thread's case, it's all about whether you prefer a more connected world (the games) vs. a more open world (the anime). However, I will admit, I do actually think the XYZ anime is ten times better than the games, including how the world feels much more connected.

    Anime by a long shot.
    I was never into the games much, the last game I completed was platinum.
    Didn't finish, Black, X and Sun.
    In Gen 7 I don't really have a preference, but the games were infinitely better as far as I saw the story.
