    The 3D graphics looked more advanced than the graphics from Generation 4 and the plot was more interesting in all the Generation 5 games than in previous games. Unlimited TM usage was also a great change.

    Main BW1 had a great story.

    I actually like a lot more Mon designs then I thought I definitely got sucked into the whole GEN 5 SUCKS BECAUSE RUBBISH AND ICECREAM Pokemon! Glad Gen 5 Mons got the most lovin' in SwSh!

    Gameplay much faster than Gen 4, Gen 4 is still highly playable it does take a few hours in game to get used to the speed again, Gen 5 just instantly into it.

    I never understood why Gen V's Pokemon designs got so much hate back in the day. It seems like recently there's been more positivity about the Gen V era, but I remember how often people would make rude remarks about Game Freak supposedly "running out of ideas" back then.

    It was just easy to jump on the bandwagon I guess. That's exactly what happened to me. I feel Turner especially gets undue flack for the Vanilite line I mean I saw a video from someone when he was announced to be art director with a thumbnail of the Vanilite line saying if this was a good thing, and I just thought to myself piss off.

    Better audio quality than the Generation 4 games as evidenced by the inclusion of a few vocal songs. Also the moving animated sprites made battles look wayyyy more intense.

    Pretty much everything especially the soundtrack, story, and the characters. I also liked the soft reboot of only Unova Pokemon being available until postgame. I wish gamefreak would do this again.

    I get excited whenever I run into Audino because it means free exp. Lots of it.

    Shaking grass, double battle grass, much better-written characters, compelling main stories, a bunch of solid Pokemon designs, smooth graphics compared to Gen 4, engaging postgames, online play integrated better into the game*, TM limits removed, animated sprites... those are some of the things Gen V did well, according to me.

    (*Though I still remember people asking for lv. 9 Reshirams in exchange for a Patrat. Ugh.)

    The shaking grass mechanic was pretty useful since wild Tabunne (Audino) gave lots of experience points, although one of the downsides was that Tabunne had a high appearance rate when it came to the shaking grass, which I wish had been lower so that rare Pokemon would appear in the shaking grass more often.
