I have never enjoyed a console pokemon game. I feel like they have all missed the point in increasingly silly ways. Exception to Snap which is their best spinoff.
In Coliseum and there is one gym. I still have nightmares about Pokechannel and what I had to go through to get Jirachi as a child.
I liked Stadium/Stadium 2, and Colosseum, the story mode was a lot of fun, I do wish it was more traditional Pokemon, but it was as close as we've had to an actual 3D Pokemon game. I haven't played anything after those. (Stadium wise)
I have Pokemon Rumble Blast, which isn't so bad, it's a good time killer. Pokemonsnap was genius. I had Pokemon Puzzle League, which was oddly addicting, and Pokemon Pinball too I only ever got to rent it, but it was loads of fun. One I remember being incredibly frustrated with, Hey You Pikachu, fucking mic didn't work very well, so you'd be screaming at this Pikachu to do shit, and he wouldn't respond. "PICK UP THE ACORN YOU FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT!" ... "Pikaaaa???"
Not sure if this was posted already. This is arguably my favorite music in Black/White along with N's battle music:
BTW, is Pokemon Conquest any good?
Pokemon Conquest sounds like a really, really easy Fire Emblem combined with Poke-lite. Fun if you're really into Pokemon, not so much otherwise.
Pokemon Puzzle League was the best spin-off other than Snap but it was a clone of some other puzzle game, so doesn't really count
It's a pretty fun if you're a fan of strategy games. The combat's quite similar to Fire Emblem, and the battlefields are all well designed. I only just finished the main story line, which didn't take too long, but there's quite a lot of extra content afterwards. It's been fairly easy so far, but I've heard some of the extra episodes are more challenging. Don't expect a very good story or much character development.BTW, is Pokemon Conquest any good?
Probably the best spin off so far, besides Snap and maybe the Mystery Dungeon games.

Like how I think the last half of Gen 5 is the best and it's endgame was better than all the rest.
Black2/white2 is one big cash in. Half the music is the same (The shit that isnt is just awful). Half the NPCs are the same. The PC's are just reskinned versions of Black/White. Majority of the Gym leaders are the same. Nintendos getting greedy. The reason they didnt want to put it on the 3DS is because it would have required them do some work.
The general opinion, at least from what I've read on 4chan, is that Black and White 2 are better than B/W. It's not fixing all of they're problems, but it's going in the right direction. They're not really getting lazier, they actually seem to be putting more effort into these games than Yellow/Crystal/Emerald/Platinum.
Also, it's probably not Nintendo's fault that it's on the DS. Pokemon is a huge system seller, why wouldn't they want it on the 3DS? Game Freak has always been late coming to the new consoles unfortunately.
