There isn't a super powerful trainer to level up with either. Granted the E4's average levels are a bit higher but still nowhere close to the second E4 in FRLG, Steve in Emerald, or Red in GSC.
"Transformers, robots in disquise" sorry just had to say that lol. Anyway right at the beginning of R/B/Y Ken Sugimori said he had ideas for over 1000 pokemon so they certainly are not running out of ideas.Draconic land sharks that can fold into jetplanes
Ok but look at R/S same situation there, after E4 the only difference is you can obtain Rayquaza and the Battle Tower. And R/B all there is to do after the E4 is Mewtwo. Plus its thier first time moving to the DS so stop complaining GF just needs a little time to adjust to the new system. Stop looking at the bad part and look at the positive thing:only thing i didn't like about the 4th gen is, besides almost no new fire or electric types
theres almost nothing to do after the E4 besides fill the national dex and catch a few extra legends
if they make a 3rd 4th gen game, they need somthing like the battle frontier, or dare i say connect Shinnou to johto to make the game longer
Yes exactly like I said, we have to look at the bright side, espeically that there are many positive things, and what you mentioned is just a few.Ok but look at R/S same situation there, after E4 the only difference is you can obtain Rayquaza and the Battle Tower. And R/B all there is to do after the E4 is Mewtwo. Plus its thier first time moving to the DS so stop complaining GF just needs a little time to adjust to the new system. Stop looking at the bad part and look at the positive thing:
1. Physical/Special Split made it alot more realistic
2. Improved graphics
4. Defintley a better sound track
5. Main story line is harder
7. More story behind it. (Mostly the legend)
And Energy Ball isn't an option?
Seriously, I haven't finished it yet, but the occasional disappointments are outweighted by the improvments.
For Infernape, I was at first disappointed with it being the same type combo as Blazike, but then when I relized it's sweeping power it's ok, especialy since it's ALOT faster than Blaziken, and can learn both Swords Dance and Nasty Plot, not to mention Close Combat.
As for Garchomp and Flygon, Garchomp is way better than Flygon, much higher attack, higher speed and of course Swords Dance.
So you see these pokemon have the same type combos as others but so what....we've seen alot water/ground, fire/flying, Steel/Rock....it's not like a type combo is made just for one pokemon.
As for fourth ge in general, it's fine with me, sure I'm not 100% excited of many new evos, but there are evos that are really cool and I like, such as Electivire, Dusknoir and Porygon Z, which are very good for competive play.
For the graphics, I like them, heck they're alot better than before, now when you walk up somehting, move beside a building, the view changes, which is awesome, and not to mention the almost 3-D style.
The battle zone is fine with me, not better than Battle frontier but still good, and I only need the HM if I go re-battle trainers for EV training or post EV training, and I bring an HM slave anyway, besides after you finish with trainers/getting items...you'll only need to go there fo battle tower, catching pokemon and sometimes to The Ribbon Society.
So excuse me for finding 4th gen fun....even with some flaws.
How the hell would changing one type of a Pokemon earn Gamefreak more money? 0.o
Anyway, I found the games to be rather fun and I'm still playing it, even after playing the Japanese Pearl for hours. And personally, this has probably become my favorite Gen of Pokemon...I have trouble deciding which ones I like more.
So, it's ultimately up to personal opinion. And sells have shown that most people have welcomed this with open arms...
Not this "running out of ideas" junk. And how is 79 half of 107? And...do new evos and ledgendaries not count as new Pokemon or something?
Not too mention GS had only 76 new Pokemon out of 100 that weren't ledgendaries or babies/evos of old Pokemon....why isn't that complained about but DP is?

and GF, in my opinion, IS running out of ideas
And what the hell? Because Gamefreak doesn't put ideas the fans think up in the game that makes the Pokemon suck? That can be said for EVERY game, buddy. I've made up thousands of ideas, but I don't get mad because Gamefreak didn't think of simmilar ideas.and GF, in my opinion, IS running out of ideas. When all the best ideas are being thought up by the fans and not the creators you know you have a problem
