TGN Writes: "While I am a huge Pokémon fan, the last generation of Black and White felt like the formula was getting stale. Many of the newly designed Pokémon felt unoriginal (a chandelier and an ice cream cone? Really?) and there seemed to be part of the soul of the series that was lacking. Fortunately, Game Freak has evolved (that pun had to happen eventually) the series in areas where it was becoming too iterative and refined systems in place to create the best Pokémon games since Pokémon: Gold and Pokémon: Silver."
