In no particular order:

1. Return to Kanto with improved graphics, more content, and less glitchiness
2. VS. Seeker in FR/LG
3. Battle Frontier (Emerald)
4. Mach bike was fast
5. Introduction of faster egg hatching via abilities (Emerald)
6. Elite Four getting stronger for second round/rematches (in some of the games)
7. Not strictly from the main handheld games, but I really enjoyed the concept of Colosseum and XD
8. No more saving every time you switch boxes
9. Running shoes
10. Return of Blastoise (my favorite Pokémon) as a starter
