Sapphire, Red, and Crystal. Generation 3 is easily my favorite.

Didn't know anyone actually used Psy/Golduck

He's not my go to water pokemon or my back-up but I'd definitely use Golduck once in a while.

Emploeon, Leafeon, Glaceon, Abomasnow, and Drifblim were the only good pokemon. I couldn't even make a full team with how shitty all of the new pokemon were. Gen 5 wasn't all that much better either.

thats what i heard, the DS generations they just seemed to run out of ideas. granted i dont know that well because i never wanted to get a DS just for one game. but looking through the moves and skillsets on bulbapedia, they really just seemed to go way over the top and make every pokemon too good. the names and designs also got worse and worse

Absolutely. I couldn't make a full team of Gen 4 pokemon. I hear good things about Gen 5 but I still think it sucks in comparison to 1, 2, and 3.

I'd say III >>> I > II with IV and V not being good enough to even grace my ranking with 4th and 5th place. III just has near infinite re-playability for me.

Based on what

all the first 3 generations are like that. ive beaten Blue so many times that ive had almost every pokemon in my final team at least once, and nowadays its like, i beat 3, then i play 2 and beat that, then i go back... its easy to switch back and forth and they never get old.

That is literally exactly what I do just replace Blue with Red. Always been partial to Red.

I get not liking it, but saying it's worse than five and four? Everyone is entitled to their opinions but really? Worse than four?

Yeah, might be just a case of bad memory but I never really enjoyed them all that much, in terms of gameplay and the new pokemon and I haven't replayed it since because I wasn't a big fan then. It's been a while since I've played four as well but from what I remember I thought it was better than three, can't think of any thing too bad about it. and I've been playing 5 recently and that's pretty good. So I'm just basing my opinion on memories so take it for what it is..

Weird. Generation III had I believe no pokemon I disliked. Whereas Gen 4 had 5 I didn't dislike. Gen 5 is just a slightly improved Gen 4. The pokemon are getting farther away from pokemon and closer to being just unusually colored animals.

some of the Pokemon in 4 make me think of Yu-Gi-Oh characters. its like bitch, you gotta appeal to your old school fans too! a few of the 20 somethings who played the first games still play!

I can definitely see that.
I know right? They seemed to try and do that with Gen 5 but I think they failed. Although I know plenty of people who grew up with the games who enjoyed 5. Although I don't know of a single person who grew up playing that lists 4 or 5 higher than 1, 2, or 3.

How is Arbok not an oddly colored animal?

It is. It just doesn't suck.
