Top 10 Worst Main Series Pokemon Gamespokemonrater There was a list about handheld games, but not the main series games.
The Top Ten
Due to the fact you can't evolve your Pikachu and obtain Raichu... You technically can't catch 'em all in this game!
The only game based on the anime, and you can't even evolve your Pikachu! - pokemonrater
What? You can't even evolve your Pikachu?

Don't tell me "It's THE BEST GAME! Y U HATE IT? ". Tell me why it's so good, then. I made my reasons why it was bad, tell me why it was "the greatest". Then maybe I'll actually listen to you. - pokemonrater
By the way, if people like it so much, then why are people voting it so high on the list? - pokemonrater
Lol! This list is a joke. Everyone knows Emerald is one of, if not the, best Pokemon game.
Terrible story, if you want a better option, choose platinum. - pokemonrater
Why so harsh to diamond and pearl? THIS IS BASICALLY A WHOLE GEN
A whole gen? What happened to Platinum and Heartgold/Soulsilver? Do they not matter to you? - pokemonrater
Too forgettable - WingedOracle
Worse than red because it has crappier pokemon as the game corner prizes, and its pokemon found in grass.
This is no way one of the worst pokemon games. I own and play this game, plus pokemon green is much worse with its pathetic sprites.
Dude, this is the same thing as red, if you're adding them to the list, just make it one listing instead of two. - pokemonrater
"You have no respect for Red & Blue! These games are amazing and you know it! The new Pokemon suck and so do you! " - Irredeemable, butthurt, weak Genwunner
To me, the story isn't as developed as the other games, and the wild pokemon ratio is too high. Zekrom doesn't look like they'd choose a hero. They look evil. - pokemonrater
Gen V is my third favorite generation next to Gen VI and Gen VII. The story was very complex for its time, the sprites looked good for their time, the difficulty was hard as f***, and catching the legendary Pokemon was really challenging. Not to mention that I lost multiple times against the Elite Four and Ghetsis. Seriously, I actually had to put a lot of time and effort into training my Pokemon since I kept on losing to them. Honestly, this generation means so much to me since not only was Pokemon Black my first Pokemon game, but it was probably the hardest generation in my opinion. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Lysandre died, unlike X, the story was too short, and had the smallest amount of pokemon added. - pokemonraterV 2 Comments
I am very glad to have a conversation with you, ModernSpongeBobSucks. I, Kieran Glen Harris Stark aka The Ultimate Daredevil (in the future) am fairly known to hate (modern) Nickelodeon, which is (rarely) inferior to (modern) Disney Channel. Gameplay is the most important aspect of the game. But you are right. The graphics are very weak and dull for Game Boy standards.
I am waiting for a Genwunner to throw a temper tantrum when he sees a Generation 1 game on this list! Generation 1 is the worst Pokemon Generation!
Yeah, the remakes are better even though I never played them nor the originals. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Its graphics are heavily outdated and haven't aged well. Plus, the mechanics look unpolished compared to newer generations. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
You can't blame a game for it's graphics unless they were outdated at the time they were made. - pokemonrater
Imagine if Mariotehplumber (a probable Genwunner) broke his penis off after listening to the theme song of Pokemon (Season 2)! Get the joke?
P. S. Why the dislike on my comment? I really am glad to speak with ModernSpongeBobSucks, gameplay is the most important aspect of the game and the gameplay. Also, I love the classic RPG games for the SNES (with a burning passion)! They are underrated.
The story was great, but it was WAY TOO DIFFICULT! The exp you get after each battle is way to low! For most people, Olivia is too difficult, and you have no way to get high level pokemon. RIP Pokemon Bank. - pokemonrater
People wanted a harder game, since gen 6 was easy. Now you're complaining that it's too hard? What's up with that?! - 906389
Pokemon sun and moon both absolutely suck in my opinion, worst pokemon games - Brobusky
Don't worry about it
This high on the list already? This list must be new :|V 1 Comment
Never made it across shores because of it's crappy sprites. - pokemonraterV 1 Comment
Nothing wrong with it so far. Only thing is the polarizing SOS mechanic, although I find that mechanic to be a great challenge for me. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
This is one of my favorite ones ever. But its new so I am biased as all hell. - HeavyDonkeyKong
I still believe that Gen V is the hardest generation to date, but I think we can all agree Gen VII is much more challenging than Gen VI. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Yo, HeavyDonkeyKong and ModernSpongeBobSucks! What do you think of the anime called Pokemon: Sun and Moon?! Will you be disappointed? I am asking you this because Pokemon: Sun & Moon will be a Disney show, so it will be executed kinda differently.

Hugh looks like a douche, but he isn't, Colress isn't actually an evil antagonist, just a guy who doesn't care what happens. - pokemonraterV 1 Comment
It's good, but compared to Generation VII, the graphics aren't as colorful. Also, excluding Mewtwo, Zygarde, and the three legendary birds, Xerneas and Yveltal were pretty easy to catch and the game was too easy. - ModernSpongeBobSucksV 1 Comment
Team Aqua has a terrible plan, which is making it rain to decrease the landmass. Taking the water out of the ocean, and putting it back. They should think it out more. - pokemonrater
That's kind of a bad reason to explain why a Pokemon game sucks. Just saying. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Archie and Maxie were the most cartoonish villians in the franchise with stupid motives, yes. But that didn't really take away much from the Hoenn region as Hoenn is one of the most fun regions to explore and go through, unlike Kalos to an extent... - RueeV 1 Comment
WHAT'S WRONG WITH POKEMON
It's the exact thing as diamond and pearl except with a new legendary.
Terrible graphics, like generation 1, and has a terrible soundtrack.
Whoever is splitting up duo/trio games, STOP IT! It's Red/Blue, Gold/Silver/Crystal, Ruby/Sapphire, Diamond/Pearl, Black/White, Black 2/White 2, X/Y, OMEGA RUBY/ALPHA SAPPHIRE! Not Red, Gold, Ruby, Omega Ruby, X, THEY'RE ALL TECHNICALLY THE SAME GAME!
The only Nintendo franchise that improved in the modern era is Pokemon (many other Nintendo franchises like Kirby, Ice Climber [despite no sequels] and Super Smash Bros. remained strong), but Pokemon will always have the same games at this rate.
