It is my belief that Pokemon has gotten better as time has passed. First round is for acceptance. Good luck!

Thank you theta_pinch for accepting my debate.

Reasons for why Pokemon has gotten better over time:

1.) Gameplay
2.) Fandom

1. Gameplay
Over time, the gameplay of the Pokemon games has gotten significantly better for many reasons. These reasons include battles, characters, and graphics.
I) Battles
Battles have gotten significantly more interesting as time has passed. The biggest reasons for this are more moves and more types of Pokemon. Gamefreak putting in more moves and move types has allowed for much more diversity in battle and a bigger aspect of strategy in the games. Now there are more type advantages so it adds more excitement to the battles. (Source: http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net...)
II) Characters
In the first generation, not much was given about the characters and they aren't really that interesting. Now, there are not only more characters but they are also more interesting. One character that exemplifies this is N from Gen 5. The game has him on the team you are battling; however, unlike the rest of the major members on his team, he is fighting because he actually believes that freeing Pokemon will be to their benefit. Ghetsis only wants to rule the world with no opposition. (Sources: http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net..., http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net...)
III) Graphics
As time goes on, technology will essentially get better. Video games are no exception. The first couple of gens had grainy, not-that-great graphics. As time went on however, the graphics (both visual and audible) got much better. The music now is beautiful and so are the visuals.

2.) Fandom
As time went on, more and more people immersed themselves into the Pokemon universe. Some of these people made very great contributions. Many of these taking place recently. I will be using the example of the Nuzlocke comics. The Nuzlocke comics for those who don't know are comics made by someone with the user name of "Nuzlocke" on 4chan. They tell the story of the main character of the 3rd Gen, ruby, as he travels between regions. He does this while playing by specific rules set up by the creator of the comics. Not only are these comics funny and dramatic at the same time, but they have also gotten better as time went on. The first series of comics were crude and the story wasn't as good, but now the story has gotten much better and they look professionally done. This mirror how the game has also progressed. (Sources: http://www.nuzlocke.com..., )

Thank you for your time and good luck to my opponent.

Ah, I was excited to see this. I think it has definitely made major strides, but took major steps backward in storytelling and characters in the the 6th generation compared to fifth. There were many compelling arguments to be made.
