What's your opinion on the new pokemon games?
I personally I like the old games and pokemon better, the new ones look too fake

I think pokemon gets treated unfairly by a lot of people.
Yeah, I grew up with Red/Blue/Yellow, and those are definitely the pokemon I've gotten used to and been raised with. That being said, R/B/Y were FAR too easy. Sure, a lot of the new pokemon look stupid, but the actual games themselves are far more intricate, more challenging, longer, and actually require more than a pulse to beat. I've had many runs through Blue using just Kadabra and Fearow to beat THE WHOLE GAME. So, I'd have to say my favorite ones overall are Gold/Silver, and FireRed/LeafGreen- they're a lot more challenging, they're longer, and there's not too much content I'm completely unfamiliar with.
I was raised on 151 pokemon, so I'm obviously partial to those. However, if I was to pick up Pokemon Diamond as my first game, Red/Blue/Yellow would be boring by comparison. Once you take off the nostalgia filter, it's pretty much obvious that the new games are actually much better overall.1
