Generation 2 brought us great new Pokemon, and the Johto region showed us that even though the region is small, it can be filled with great Pokemon and locations. From the new Steel-types such as Skarmory and Scizor to the Legendary Dogs and Birds, to the Starters, everything about Johto is great.

Generation 3 is close behind, as it gave us the only good "fresh start" in the series. While Generation 5 certainly gave us a fresh start, the Pokemon were covered with pointless patterns and didn't have much of a Pokemon vibe. However, Generation 3 gave us a great fresh start with extremely exotic-looking Pokemon. However, these exotic Pokemon still had that Pokemon vibe, and there was a good reason for the Pokemon to look exotic: Hoenn is a tropical region. Even in real life, the animals in tropical areas look much different. So, for those reasons, Hoenn is also a great region.

I always thought of gen 3 as the generation with the most pokemon covered in colorful patterns and contrasting shades o.O

Generation 2. I loved the soundtrack in those games and I loved the fact that you could go to Kanto after you defeated the E4. A lot of my favorite Pokèmon were introduced in Generation 2. Celebi, Scizor, Tyranitar, Typhlosion. The list goes on.

It's so hard to just pick one xD Gen 1 will always be a past time that I'll never forget. When it comes to how many pokemon I like in each gen, I'd probably have to stick with gen 1. However, gen 2 was also very good. Gen 1 and 2 are like a tie for me XD But if I really had to pick, I guess gen 1.

Gen III~!

Not gonna bother listing all the reasons why, but the Pokemon are awesome and the Battle Frontier is awesome. That's all that needs to be said here. :D

Second. It still has the 8-bit look and feel, improved vastly on the originals and I prefer the lack of EVs, natures, etc. — battling can purely be moves and monsters, how I like.

The third did what the fifth did — cut out as many things as it added. That is the reason, to those wondering, why Hoenn has typically been the least-liked, and why people have more recently complained about Unova.

Gen II. It essentially just took everything from the already amazing Gen I and multiplied it by a thousand. The storylines, the battles, the music etc. Gen II was incredible.

I prefer 1st gen. It set the mark. That's all. There will always be possibilities to wind up from checkpoints, but what pioneers is what counts. All hail Satoshi Tajiri for this pioneering masterpiece!

Generation 2 was my favorite. I loved the music and the pokemon introduced. The graphics were also great for a game at that time.

Gen 2 definitely. I loved Gen 1 to death, and as such I played it to death, so when Gen 2 came out it was like a huge breath of fresh air the likes of which I've never before felt. Playing it the first time, it felt quirkier and more special than Gen 1, and it was just such a great feeling to be able to begin again somewhere I didn't know and discover all new secrets. That was the first time that happened to me, since my first playthrough of Gen 1 I was kinda busy figuring out how to Pokemon

My fav is Gen 5. The graphics they put in it is amazing. It be more awesome if it was in 3D. Also the dragons are the best of all generations in my opinion.

My 2nd fav is Gen 1 Not leaf green and such, the original game. Its simplicity was always entertaining to me and the music was cool for its time.

Gen III. It had both of my favorite regions (Hoenn and Kanto), the best OST (RSE), my favorite Pokes (again, from Hoenn and Kanto), and among other things.

My second favorite gen is Gen I. There is a certain charm to those games that will never fade from my memories.

Gen 5 for me, Black & White were my fave games to date.

And I love the Pokemon and characters featured in B/W and B2/W2.

Gen 5 made a best result such as 3D games. So, I like it. It way more interesting than it previous version. Upcoming BW2 English and PMD gen 5 are looking more awesome too. Cannot wait for playing with it in another day ^w^

I think it's abut obvious since I mod the board, but my personal favourite generation would be the 4th. In particular HGSS.

Gen III will always hold a special place in my heart because of Hoenn being expansive and the really catchy music there. Currently, my favorite generation is Gen V because of the new Pokemon introduced.

I've always loved Gen IV. It introduced some wonderful,cute and powerful Pokemon like Pachirisu,Togekiss,Yanmega,Electivire,the list could honestly go on. Sinnoh had always been a beautiful region to me as well,with interesting places and an awesome storyline.

Also Gen IV introduced more Battle Frontier places,besides the old Battle Tower like the Battle Hall,Castle,Factory and Arcade :3. There were amazing additions like the Pokeathlon,a fun place for Pokemon sport competitions,the Safari Zone where you trekked around looking for rare Pokemon.

It also introduced the amazing HG/SS, the remakes of G/S/C. I thought it was the best remake of the Pokemon series and loved how Pokemon followed you around eagerly along with some nostalgia moments from the old days.

This! Oh, my god! THIS!

Oh...But don't forget it was the game that first did the Physical and Special split. Which had to been the most smartest s*it I've evar seen in mah life. LOL

But it's like I said in another thread...I like Sinnoh and Johto the most, cuz its the 2 gens that introduce more further evolution/pre-evolution Pokemon. Not to mention branch-evolution Pokemon! I love the gens that have these. ^w^
