Is Pokemon getting kiddy since R/S/E?
By: Adam

I have reason to believe that ever since Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald Version, Pokemon has been getting kiddy.
I've done some "research" by playing the game and looking through the guides that I have. I do not give 100% details, such as what the bad guys capture.
Not that it's been that mature before, but it is too "nice and happy go lucky" than before. Allow me to demonstrate.

In R/B/Y, your rival disliked you. In G/S/C, he hates your guts and repeatedly insults you, because he thinks you're a wimp.
In R/S/E, your rival is so nice, and not only helps you out but gives you advice and has happy friendly battles.

Prior to R/S/E, the main antagonists were Team Rocket, and boy were they powerful. In R/B/Y you could defeat Team Rocket by infiltrating their secret hideout or taking them out in the hostage-filled Silph Co. buildings. In G/S/C they had a secret hideout as well, even took over a radio tower to brainwash Johto's Pokemon into doing their bidding and stole Kanto's power supply. In R/S/E, however, Team Aqua/Magma are misguided idiots who want to help the world. And what do they take over? A mountaintop, an out-of-the-way underwater cavern, and a museum.

Is it just me, or did Nintendo think that the buyers of R/S/E had very little self-confidence? Everywhere you go there are compliments, that just get annoying, from the "wow you are really strong" to the "I really like you, Brendan," to even the "He was the greatest trainer and his summary of the battle 'Poop' was the greatest clincher ever and he has such good things to say and his pokemon's last move, scratch, is a symbol of its friendship with the other pokemon."
And for those truly wanting someone to love them there's this annoying kid named Wally who adores you and looks up to you, even though you're older.
And, this takes the cake. After you beat the Pokemon league, you will get FANS, from people saying "you rule  I love you" to even a fangirl who screams your name and begs you to incessantly shake her hand.
R/S/E could be a virtual cure for depression.
Geez. in previous games you had a "wow, you may have what it takes to become the Champion" at the very most.

I do not know what Diamond and Pearl are like, but I hope they do not follow this kiddy trend.
