Beautiful, and fun, but when will this Gimmick grow up?

Summary: Pokemon was an indelible part of my childhood. I loved the originals, the sequels (Yellow, Gold, Silver) But then they made the new ones for Gameboy Advance and sort of ruined the whole thing. They added way too many new pokemon, and most of the designs they came up with were lazy and uninspired. It just became a chore to be a fan of the series. Then Diamond and Pearl came out...much to my chagrin we received even more ridiculous designs mixed in with some good ones.
Conclusion: Don't get me wrong, it's a great game. I mean who wouldnt want their favorite pokemon following them around, and theres 16 badges to get and an extra region. But they've done so much wrong which made it feel restricted as to what pokemon you can get. For example, the item that makes rhydon evolve isnt available until the very end of your journey.
