    What do you love about Generation V?
    Despite being the one of the most controversial and divisive generations in the series, what stands out and makes it a great generation?

    The main story is one of the best in the series.
    TMs were made infinite use, removing the biggest drawback to using them.
    Triple and Rotation Battles were inventive concepts that add more strategy to a battle. Too bad there isn't a lot of them.
    Hidden Abilities add some new strategies to use on familiar Pokemon.
    The large dex of new Pokemon helps to make Unova feel "unique. These games were meant to be a new beginning, and they did that very well.

    The birth of infinite use TMs and BW2's Joint Avenue was a great way to help get rare items and provide useful services for your Pokemon. Too bad Gen 7's Festival Plaza could not copy its enjoyment. Being limited to new Pokemon only was a fresh experience even if the designs were a bit hit and miss.

    I was unaware. The last activity according to search was in June of last year, and that was only done for this generation. It doesn't hurt to have another one either.

    shoz999 ... Don't laugh.

    I'm going to take a guess that you don't seem to know that Gen V is almost unanimously popular among fans. I take it you saw a small group of loud-mouth fanboys who started hating every new generation since Gen 3 stopped Pokemon transfers from Gen 2. See when Gen VI hit, those same idiots suddenly praised how great Gen V was and how bad Gen VI was in-comparison. Take such "criticism" with a grain of salt unless it really is constructive.

    I don't know why but Gen V is the best in everything in my opinion

    -A more engaging story.
    -Sequels instead of a third version.
    -Hidden abilities (despite a flawed execution).
    -Infinite TMs.

    The best thing about Gen V is the new region, Unova, the fleshed out human characters, and the OST.

    And the PWT, one of the best features ever.

    Gen V had a good soundtrack, especially in the Black and White sequels. Also, the general plot of the games was great and even an improvement over some of Gen IV's plot ideas.

    I love the entire theme of Unova about how "multiple majestic bridges connect the region".

    It's something that makes Unova memorable, and instantly recognisable.

    The first game was practically a soft reboot, only the Unova Pokemon available for use until you beat the game.

    The best villain to date!

    The sequel games were actually sequels! This really needs to happen again
