If you have been up to date with the latest news in the field of video games, you will know that on November 19 the more than expected remakes of the fourth generation of Pokémon, Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, will finally be released for Nintendo Switch.
Well, as expected, a few months after the launch, both users and the press have started to reflect on why the fourth generation is one of the most remembered. Here we point out that the original Nintendo DS games were a bag of diverse opinions.
Therefore, we leave you with a compilation of aspects to improve, although we highlight that some of their problems were fixed with the third edition, Pokémon Platinum.
Points to improve:
- The rhythm of the gyms is quite strange, while the first 2 takes a long time to arrive (and there is a long journey between them), each time we get closer to the end the gyms will be much closer to each other.
- There is a clear imbalance in the types of wild Pokémon, for example, the only wild fire-type Pokémon that you will find easily in the game are Chimchar (and its evolutionary line) as well as Rapidash (and its evolutionary line), while other types like water or the bug abound throughout the Monte Corona region.
- Performance and optimization issues in their original DS versions, with various framerate issues in combat.
- Routes 217 and 212 can be quite frustrating due to snow and mud respectively.
- To advance in the game you need to have many MOs on your team simultaneously.
- Lack of a consistent post-game.
- The story is considered half-hearted by some fans.
- The categories of physical and special attack were divided, which made the types no longer have this built-in feature and that it was purely dependent on the Pokémon.
