A recent interview with art director Ken Sugimori shed some light on his thoughts of the current generation of Pokemon. According to Sugimori, while he is pleased with the games, he would like to see any future generations return to the “simplistic” nature of the first generation, specifically Pokemon Red and Green. Some examples he gave included changing the number of attacks, abilities, and items in the games, and even watering down the designs of some Pokemon as well.
What do you all think? Do you like the more complex direction the series has taken (multiple abilities, natures, shiny Pokemon, the competitive aspect with EVs and IVs, tons of items, etc.), or would you prefer the focus be as it was like in the first installments of the franchise?

Recently I was able to get my own copy of Pokemon X version and I wanted to review the game.
