I'm not baiting. DP is objectively better than Platinum in almost every way, if you actually care about the vision and passion behind it.
Many things added/changed in Platinum make no sense whatsoever. It's like, outside of the story, they didn't bother to keep the game integral to the original games.
For example, see pic related. In the artwork of the map of Sinnoh, the Battle Zone is clearly depicted as a cold region, similar to mainland Sinnoh, but in Platinum they made it tropical for no fucking reason??? And it makes no sense like, the real life inspiration for the Battle Zone was an island below Russia, so it should be of a colder climate, not tropical. And now there's no coming back from this, because Platinum is seen as the definitive version of Sinnoh, sadly. From now on, Sinnoh will be depicted as seen in Platinum.
Platinum is literally a D tier rom hack made by edgy fanfic writers. If BDSP include:>Eterna Forest gas>Spooky Lost Tower>Monotype teams>Platinum Gym order/linearty>Tropical Battle Zone
I am going to kill myself because Sinnoh is all I have in life and it shows that GAME FREAK doesn't care about their fans anymore. I bet Masuda is being pressured to include a lot of Platinum changes as we speak, probably held at gunpoint by the director of Platinum.
