    I just want to know what you think is the most disliked Generation, NOT the one you hate. It could be one you really like but think that people in general don't like too much. So what do you think?

    I notice a lot of people say the franchise went downhill with Gen IV. Personally, I enjoyed my time in the Sinnoh region. Call me crazy, (and don't hate me) but my least favorite is Hoenn, my favorites are Kanto and Unova.

    Sinnoh.

    Poor Sinnoh.

    So many people fail to appreciate its beauty.

    Unova you could not go anywhere with out hearing lines like "Ice cream Pokemon" "Trashbag Pokemon" "GameFreak's running out of ideas!". At least with 6 gen coming we won't have to hear it anymore...... Hopefully...

    Then they'll say, "at least there's no ice cream pokemon or trash bag pokemon in this one" or "Gamefreak is seriously losing their touch, these pokemon are worse that Vanillite and Trubbish"

    As it was mentioned elsewhere, people say that Gen V was totally uncreative, and this and that, but really, look at Grimer, Muk, Ditto, etc. They weren't what you would call creative either :)

    Some people just want something to complain about I guess.

    Hoenn is unappreciated. I've heard some say that the franchise went downhill with R/S/E.

    Grimer, Muk, Ditto are all creative. So is Garbodor. But Vanniluxe is not really creative. The idea is nice, but the connotation it has takes it away.

    Probably 4th or 5th. Although the one I personally hate most is 5th.

    Sinnoh isn't the one I most hate, but my least favorite. Few fire types, two snowy routes, swamp areas and a huge hard-to-explore mountain.

    From what I've seen, a lot of people tend to hate on Sinnoh... I can't fathom why, myself...

    Unova is a close second.

    I didnt like gen 4 and 5. I didnt like the looks of the new pokemon in those generations.

    I don't hate any of them, but I dislike most of the 4th gen pokemon. Sinnoh itself is great though

    Sid87 I love shiny pokemon

    Easily either Sinnoh or Unova is the most HATED. My least favorite is Hoenn (though having a least favorite pokemon region/generation is like having a least favorite piece of chocolate... it's still awesome!), and Sinnoh is my favorite.

    You're right. No creativity here. An ice cream pokemon is such an unoriginal and commonly seen idea.

    Ditto is creative for it's ability to copy foes. Garbodor is creative, since it's actually pretty original. Vanniluxe...is extremely original. I've seen trash monsters, but not once have I ever seen ice cream monsters, or have I of even dreamed about coming up with such a creature.

    Grimer and Muk? Please. Sludge piles have got to be the oldest monsters in the book. Not saying I hate grimmer or muk, I like them much more then Garbodor, but Vanniluxe is a pretty unique idea.

    Though of course, the most recent generation is always going to be the one "hated" the most. When a new region is formed, that's when people develop opinions on them, and that's when they're most easily persuaded by the genwunners "bandwagon". I almost was pulled into the anti-gen 5 bandwagon since I was a dumb kid, but really, I grew out of that, and I won't ever be sucked into a bandwagon that biased again. Sadly, a lot of people don't grow out of such things...

    Plus, it can learn EXPLOSION! Where else are you going to find and explosive, sentient ice cream cone?

    3rd gen is hated on a lot.

    I overheard some guys at college yesterday talking about which one was the best (apparently only Gens 1 and 2 exist according to them), and out of nowhere I blurted out "I like 3rd gen the best, the new ones aren't that great".

    And one guy was like "DUDE 3RD GEN IS THE WORST, FIRST AND SECOND ARE THE BEST".

    So I just said "Ok" and moved along.

    Please don't make me define what connotation means here, why must every small criticism must be related to being a genwunner anyway? I am going to scream newgenner whenever someone criticises anything about the older stuff.

    Did I ever call you a genwunner? That last paragraph wasn't targeted at you.

    And from my understanding, connotation =/= creativity. They may influence each other from time to time, but they're different things non the less.
