Honest Game Trailers: Pokemon Diamond & Pearl

Pokemon Diamond & Pearl

From the studio that's pretty much just a toy company by now, comes the fourth generation comes the alchemecal wonder that turns children's dreams into cold hard cash.

Watch Video

"Probably Australian"

Nah.

Pokemon couldn't survive in Australia.

I want... A SHRUBBERY! [dramatic music]

But really, these names are brilliant.

See, now you've done it. You've encouraged the the MLP fandom. The internet will be flooded with erotic Arceus crossover fics for months now.

The video is fun and all, especially the made up name segment. However, there is that one phrase that just gets my goat. "They are running out of ideas." I know it's a comedy video and all, but the more you look into newer Pokemon the more you realize just as much, if not, more effort went into designing them than the older ones.

Hopefully when they do Gen 5, they will mention that it actually shook up the story formula, something the video mentions as a problem with the newer games. Which they won't, of course. They will most likely harp on the fact there is an ice cream Pokemon, and thus declare the whole generation as terrible compared to the "sacred" early ones.

Nah.

Pokemon couldn't survive in Australia.

i bet they very much would :)

I feel like there could have been more to say about the game, but since I haven't played it I could be wrong.

Loved the "Starring" bit, though. "Probably Australian" ha.

Hey.

HEY

HEY HEY HEY

My dreams are cold hard cash too!

Hail Honchkrow, Honchkrow is justice.

Yo, this game was my jam when I was a kid.

Can't believe I watched the entire thing.Also I wonder if there is some sort of time to high ratio that determines how long it takes you to come up with those names for pokemon.

Like if you smoke 3 blunts it would take you an hour to name them all, but if you smoked only one it would take you three hours....

Now that I see this gen Pokmons I really think most were pretty weak, those cutie things are really ugly.

However, it had some nice pokemons, including the starters, never trained those Pokemons but they are really cool. But overall Black and White and X and Y had better new Pokemons. But the lenedaries are kinda ugly, Arceus, Palkia and other similar are terrible, too overdesigned and look unatural

Those names were sensational. Well done.

No no no! Gen 1 is a perfect specimin of amazing and nothing can compete! They obviously had the most creative designs, like the three blob monsters, or the ball that turns into a slightly larger ball that can't learn surf despite being less dense than water.

Honestly, I like Gen IV's Pokemon Best. They were still pretty creative and interesting. Palkia being Water/Dragon was stupid though.

Things really started getting weird with Gen V.

"I need about three fitty"

How is this still a thing? Not complaining, just wondering since its like 15 years old now.

Anywho honestly I consider Gen IV to have the weakest designs, but thats just my opinion. It was also pretty poorly thought out in a lot of ways too. Like Platinum was introduced and introduced a lot of Pokemon from previous regions because the region was rather lacking. For example, while we all know fire types aren't exactly commonplace there were only two fire pokemon native in Sinnoh, one of which was the starter and the other one with poor special attack that learned almost entirely special fire moves.
