The idea of this is obvious due to the title. I thought something like this would have allready been posted but I used the search function and I didn't find anything but to be fair I didn't look that hard so I apologize if there is a thread like this.

My favorite generation is Gen 5 because it had the best Story in my opinion but I can't decide between B&W 1 or B&W 2.

In the poll above I've allowed the option to vote for multiple options. Although I can't stop you I advise you don't pick two games. I put the option there so people can also submit there favorite Generation as some people may like Pokemon Red more than Emerald but since Gen 3 also had Gen 1 remakes their favorite Generation is Gen 3 instead so in that case that person can vote for Pokemon Red and Gen 3. And if you are like me then and can't decide what your favorite pokemon game is I suggest picking your favorite Generation instead as that makes it a lot easier.

Btw the poll will only include games from the mainstream RPG titles.

I know people are going to rip me to shreds, but my favorite generation is the first. There's so much sentimental value in the earliest main series Pokémon games, and I was happy when they were re-released to 3DS Virtual Console for #Pokémon20. Of course, I will admit there are TONS of crazy problems with that generation overall.

Outside of the above, I also enjoy Alpha Sapphire. The Hoenn remakes were so fun, especially compared to X/Y, even if I'm a bit miffed that Trainer Customization from X/Y didn't carry over into OR/AS, and that's something for me to say since I never played the original Generation III Hoenn entries.

I like Gen 6 the most because it's kinda the one i played more seriously as far as teambuilding goes. The others were just kind of having-fun-adventure generations for me.

Generation 3 is another favorite because it was my introduction to Pokémon when i got two Pokémon cards that were Cacturne and Crawdaunt. I thought they looked so awesome so i went to play Emerald a couple days later. Wich is also again why i love gen 6. The remakes!!!!

Since I started with Pokemon Diamond, Omega Ruby was really fun as it was a big improvement on the originals from what I've seen and I had never played the originals either.

I know lot's of people were pretty upset that there wasn't character customization in ORAS and I think it was because the characters had to be the same as in the originals and in the originals character customization didn't exist aside from male and female which has been in every Pokemon game where as X and Y was a new game entirely so it didn't matter what they did as they didn't have to base the characters off of anything, so expect character customization to return in Sun and Moon.

I like the font you used, do you use that for all your posts? I used to type every word starting with a capital letter on an old forum page before but I was told to stop as it hurt peoples eyes and could really damage people with epilepsy or something. I've gotten out of the habit know though so I won't be doing that ever again.

I've been playing since Gen 1, though I skipped 4 and 5 mainly because I was a poor high school student and couldn't afford to get those games, let alone a DS to play them on. Overall I like Gen 3 the most out of all the games I have played for the storyline.

Gen 3 has always been pretty popular and it seems a lot of you guys like it to.

Is that sarcastic or not? Because if so, yeah i guess this font could get annoying so i might switch it soon. If not, thanks... i guess :D

To get back on topic, Another reason OF COURSE for gen 6 being my favorite is customization xD

I wasn't being sarcastic and the character customization was very cool and made you feel attached to your trainer.

My favorite game would be Platinum, mostly because it was when I started to actually train a whole team of Pokemon instead of just relying on the starter. I got attached to quite a few Pokemon in the process. That, and I adore Chimchar and its evolution line.

Sad that you have to say this. There's absolutely nothing wrong with loving the original games, especially if you grew up with them.

I picked RBY and GSC, and I have no regrets. I prefer the simpler gameplay, and the nostalgia is powerful. I'll always have fond memories of the Pokémania Era and watching the earlier seasons of the anime, seeing the first two movies in theaters, and getting hyped about the new Pokémon in GS.

That's what the franchise will always be for me, not competitive battling or anything like that. Doesn't mean I can't name good things about the later games, but my heart will always lie with RBY/GSC.

My favorite generation would be the 5th one, with Black2/White2 as my favorite of the main series. HG/SS and 4th Gen would be my second favorites

Gens 1 and 3 are the ones that the majority of Pokemon players started with, so that's possibly the reason for it.

My favorite generations are 3, 5, and 6. Generation 3 just feels so nostalgic (they were my first video games ever), Generation 5 has such a great story and nice characters, plus some kickass music to go along with it. Generation 6 is also one of my faves (unfortunately only the Hoenn remakes) because they're Hoenn remakes. Also they have a nice post-story.

My favorite Pokémon games are Ruby (because it was my first ever), White (because of White Forest), White 2 (even though I never actually played it), and the Hoenn remakes.

If I had the option to pick between all these games (and I got it/them for free)? Gen 2 pokemon games. Crystal is my all time favorite (story and pokemon).

But for the more recent gens, it's gen four and five (in pokemon development, not story wise, I actually disliked the story (IN GAME) for Black and White)) #unpopopinion

I love them all though. <3 Enjoyed each one as much as the next!

I only really played Yellow, Emerald and Fire Red, i'd would pick Gen 1 for nostalgia, but Gen 3 is far better imo. And for a favorite game... That's hard, but i'll go with Emerald since it's more fun.
