Tricky question is too tricky :/

Well, top of the list somewhere are [email protected], Swampert, Ralts, Ludicolo...

But, tbh the only Gen III pokémon I don't like are Clamperl, Huntail and Gorebyss. Clams scare me more than most fish, and whatever those other two are....*shudders*...just, no. Make them go away please!

I've always been a huge fan of reptilian Pokemon and my favorite from gen 3 is Grovyle. I like Treecko and Sceptile but, I think Grovyle's design is much cooler.

I was always fascinated by Deoxys, largely because I never had it. However with it being easy to find in the later games it's not as special anymore.

Groudon design wise was just, I dunno, it captured me instantly. I love Pokémon Ruby. Rayquaza, again, another great design.

For standard Pokémon however I'm going to say Sharpedo. I love Sharks, and it's awesome. Dark/Water type. Brilliant.

Salamence, Flygon
I don't usually like pokemon with double weakness, but then again It's Dragons
Both of their evolutionary lines is amazing in design
Flygon line is a bit unorthodos, but that's what made them awesome

Oh, he nullify ice weakness making him invincible, and i always love seahorse

Basically dragons
Altaria didn't appeal much to me, and i don't favor legends

My favorite pokemons would be #swampert (immuned to electric and my fire type should handle the grass types) #torkoal (overheat + white smoke? Oh come on!) #agron (preferably one with a rock head ability) #rayquaza (i mean, who doesn't?), and many many more!

The least favorites would be none, at least i can't think any this time..

Don't get me started on the third gen, I fear if I start listing off my favourites it won't be long before I've listed nearly every single Hoenn pokemon.

If I'm being really strict though...:

Favourites: Numel/Camerupt, Roselia, Seviper, Mawile, Torchic/Blaziken, Salamence, Flygon, Swablu/Altaria, Gulpin/Swalot, Kyogre, Tropius, Lunatone, Corphish, Ralts/Kirlia/Gardevoir, Snorunt, Clamperl.....etc etc

(See what I mean, there's just so much quality....I could go on and on) Numel and Roselia are my absolute favourites of the bunch though.

I started appreciating Salamence, Flygon and Altaria in later generations though. It's funny how that happens.

I can't say I dislike any of them, the most I could say is I feel indifferent towards a couple like Luvdisc or Electrike/Manectric. Actually that's not completely true, the internet has ruined Mudkip and it's family for me....I just cringe whenever I look at it now.

My favourites would be Flygon, Kyogre, Sharpedo and Absol. And the Treecko line is my favourite among the starters. And Mudkip is cool too.

Most of my favourite Pokemon reside in Hoenn, my ultimate favourite is Swellow. Then my others are the likes of Lunatone, Solrock, Altaria, Breloom, Delcatty etc.

Swampert. mudkip is the most adorable of the three, and learning mudslap early on makes winning against anything easy (its like sand attack but does a tid bit of dmg too haha). Also when it fully evolves it murders everything. It is super bulky, learns two of the most common high accuracy moves (Earthquake and Surf) and only has 1 weakness, grass, which moves usually run 60 dmg or lower. I just love muddy water too, its like friggen surf but can also lower accuracy. He's just unstoppable

I'd say the starters, except Sceptile which had a pretty bad movepool, other than that I love Metagross, Salamence, Breloom & Rayquaza just to name a few, I caught none of those but I saw them kick *** when they're with NPCs, might try to give them a shot in my next playthrough though

My favourite pokemon in generation 3 is Salamence. Why? Because I love dragon type pokemon and it is powerful.
