Kanto, Johto, or Hoenn? There has been threads around here saying 'what's your favorite', so here something new. *discuss*

My Rules for My Pogeys:
I reserve the Hidden Power attack to legendary Pogeys only; every one of them must have this move.
If a move has a base power of 60 or more, it's good. 55 is okay.
I only use uberish moves like Hydro Pump if the user's ATK/SP. ATK is less than 105.
I reserve the Fire Blast attack to legendary Pogeys that can learn it.

Well, if you mean like there would only be one Pokemon generation and none of the others would have existed to begin with...then I'd choose Kanto. X3 It was the original generation that started it all really, so I'd have to be in favor of that. :33 Plus, how else would I be able to have a kawaii widdle Pikachu? XD

I'll be fast here.

Kanto: Nice, but not that much.

Johto: Useless, could be forgotten.

Hoenn: I like the Regis.


So I vote for Hoenn.

Kanto, I generally prefer the original 151 pokemon to the others. (Not to say I don't like some newer ones, as I do.)

In my personal opinion, the original pokemon were better thought out in general. The style of drawing is also generally better than the newer ones.

Blah! That last sentence may be somewhat poorly worded, but I think the idea was conveyed.

I prefer Johto.. No huge reason, but if the question is which generation of anime show (I don't watch it much) I'd say Kanto.

All generations have their pros and cons.
Kantoome fantastic creations, and the generation that started it all. However, the region itself was a bit bland, and the show was cheesy back in those days[though humourous to an extent]
Johto: I absolutley love the pokemon there, but their arn't enough of them, and there are too many babies. Also, I never got to play GSC
Hoenn: Love it! Great region, great characters, great games, great anime. Even though my favourite pokemon are all from here, there are a lot of crap creations, like Nosepass, volbeat, Marshtomp, Luvdisc, and Clamperl.
To cut a long story short, I love all 3 equally.

Just one? But...but...Snorlax, Ninetales, Eevee, Flareon, Vaporeon, Victreebel, Mew...Shuckle, Houndoom, Wobbuffet, Umbreon, Espeon Celebi and Dunsparce...Cradily, Feebas, Milotic, Mudkip, Svampert, Spoink, Latias...there are so many great pokmon in every generation! I love them all! *Huggles all pokmon* I love them to different extents though...Spinda, Nosepass, and the Regi trio? I love those five like I love snow in my shoes and arsenik in my tea...which, in case you didn't guess it, isn't very much.

Meh, I still voted Hoenn...hey, I'm only human you know! How am I supposed to say no to Cradily and Milotic?

Remember, I said you could have mixed gener's if you wanted, for all those equal people here in PC, okay?

I go with Kanto for one reason: Dragonite. I have favorites in all generations (Scizor... Xatu... Gardevoir... Absol... Marowak... Starmie), but D'Nite and Mew tipped the balance on favor of the original 151.

Oooh~ um... let's see. X3;;;;

Kanto - They were the originals... and there was Pikachu. :x But... ; They're not particularly appealing. x_x;
Johto - I liked these ones! They always struck as me as... different from the others. X3;;;;
Hoenn - Maybe it's just my love for the RSE games... but... oooh, they were NICE.

But I still vote Johto, for... no reason. <<; +stupid+ I just like them a bit better.

I can't believe so few people voted mixed regions, it was the most versatile option.
Alter Ego, I'm glad to see you agree with me. And I'm also glad that I'm not the only one who hates Nosepass. That loathsome excuse for a critter makes my eyes burn. Maybe we should be freinds.

Kanto, hands down. It has the best balance of all types, not counting minor things like Bug, Ghost, and Dragon, which have never shown their full potential through too few pokemon of the types with good attacks throughout the three generations, and the completely superfluous Dark and Steel types, which were created only so sell GS to "lolz elements" kids who care more about variety than quality. Sentimentality aside, the Kanto pokemon are the standards of the game, have been, and always will be in my opinion. They have the most balanced starters, legendaries, and movepools among pokemon of certain types that really allow someone to make almost any team and have it be competitive with anyone else's team. You get ripped off on various types in the other two games, i.e. fire and electric in RSE, dragon, ghost, and ice in GSC. All the new attacks in the world won't matter if there aren't the pokemon to handle them. The elegant basicness of the RBY pokemon gives a feeling of confidence to any player, new or veteran, when they battle, and any of you who were around when pokemon first debuted have to admit, 150 was more than enough at the time.

If you mean to only have those Pokemon, Hoenn.
If you mean to actually LIVE there, Hoenn.

So, I voted Hoenn because it is my favourite.

I can't believe you're my brother, why you may ask? And that's because you hate spinda Well, anyway...

This is one of the hardest questions around. There are so many pokemon I love. Mew, latias, dunsparce, shuckle, cradily, milotic, feebas, swampert, togetic, delibird, misdreavus, steelix, magnemite, magneton, bellsprout, weepinbell, victreebell, bulbasaur, totodile and jirachi, only to mention a few...

Even though cradily is my absolutely favourite pokemon, most hoenn pokemon came as a dissapointment for me, so I'll have to choose kanto. Not only does it contain many of my favourite pokemon, but I also love the music and the region itself.

Kanto. It has Aritcuno, Ninetales, Jolteon, Eevee, Snorlax, Starmie, Dragonite.. good to make a netbattle team, and good to have in general, i guess.

or i'm just old skool.
