View Full Version : What Pokemon Game is The Best

July 17th, 2009, 1:40 PM

Mod edit: Let's assume this question is asking about third gen games only.

July 17th, 2009, 1:49 PM
Out of the Advanced Gen games, I'm guessing?

FireRed for me.

July 17th, 2009, 2:13 PM
If its just for 3rd gen, then my favorite is Emerald.... If not, then Emerald, Crystal, or Platinum.....

July 17th, 2009, 4:33 PM
Pokemon Ruby is my favorite.

July 17th, 2009, 4:39 PM
Out of the 3rd Gen. Then, FR/LG win over for me.

July 17th, 2009, 4:40 PM
For me, its Pokemon Emerald, because of the contest and battle frontier


July 17th, 2009, 5:52 PM
Emerald all the way. I am one of the few who actually likes hoenn.

July 17th, 2009, 6:44 PM
Out of the entire main series: Red, Blue, and Yellow
Out of 3rd Gen Ruby

July 17th, 2009, 6:57 PM
I like ruby the most. I've played through it 4 times :)

July 17th, 2009, 7:22 PM
So hard to choose... but I'll go with Emerald. Probably my favorite video game of all, anyway. ^^

July 18th, 2009, 1:40 PM

July 18th, 2009, 1:45 PM
Out of the 3rd Gen? I don't have FR/LG lol so I'm going to go with my beloved Emerald :D

July 18th, 2009, 1:49 PM
Out of the advance gen eh?
I only ever played Emerald and Firered o3o
Its gonna have to be Emerald then o3o

July 19th, 2009, 8:16 AM
Emerald was the best for Hoenn.
But I liked FR/LG the best.

July 19th, 2009, 8:31 AM
They're remakes of the originals, and who doesn't like the originals?!

July 20th, 2009, 10:41 AM
My favorite is Emerald and Sapphire.

July 20th, 2009, 10:57 AM
Assuming this is talking about GBA games, considering that it's in the Advance Generation Games...

I'm going to go with Fire Red. It was like the first generation games, only in color. Besides the storyline in R/S/E sucked, and overall, I disliked the game and the new pokemon.

However, if it's any pokemon game, I have to go with Pokemon Gold. Best. Game. Evar.

July 20th, 2009, 3:08 PM
Im gonna say leaf green
Its the remake of blue... Except its green!
Also the originals were the best, other than the 2nd gen.

July 20th, 2009, 4:34 PM
I haven't played Emerald, so I'll have to go with LeafGreen.

July 21st, 2009, 6:14 AM
I spent so many hours on Emerald, I just have to vote for that one.

July 21st, 2009, 11:06 AM
Fire Red, so much fun. :)

July 22nd, 2009, 1:45 AM
Leaf Green is a tad better than Fire Red coz you can get Magmar.

July 22nd, 2009, 2:36 AM
Emerald, Emerald, Emerald, Emerald, Emerald, Emerald...Wait, a second, have to catch my breath. Emerald is my favourite of the 3rd generation, even though the only time I ever played it was like, when I borrowed it from my friend. The lack of Surskit and Masquerain in the game really made contests kinda annoying though.

Emerald, I really didn't enjoy Fr/Lg, somehow it seemed like the graphics were worse than R/S and that came out before it

Giraffes? Giraffes!
July 22nd, 2009, 6:52 PM
I haven't got much experience with r/s/e so i'm gonna go with firered.. I beat ruby one time and i didn't like it to much. Firered on the other hand i've played multiple times with only runs etc. :D

July 22nd, 2009, 9:23 PM
i would have to say its emerald.

July 22nd, 2009, 10:10 PM
Gold/Silver/Crystal hands down!

red fraction
July 22nd, 2009, 11:50 PM
I'm going with platinum because r/s/e bored me to death with the plots

July 23rd, 2009, 2:59 AM
I liked Sapphire and Emerald (which I don't own, mind you...but my brother does).

Even though the Frontier in Platinum is probably easier, I rather get good old' Emerald Version over Platinum, personally, as it is less like Pokémon Pearl version. *overally STRESSFULL memories, nuff said...well, for me, anyways.but yea....it wouldn't feel right for me to get platinum, i think....lol*

July 23rd, 2009, 5:33 AM
My favorite would be Emerald, I don't really have a reason why xD

July 23rd, 2009, 6:34 AM
Emerald is the Best, because of the Battle frontier and all new Stuff ;)

July 23rd, 2009, 6:41 AM
Gold/Silver/Crystal hands down!
I'm going with platinum because r/s/e bored me to death with the plots
Great but this was asking about 3rd gen only.

Or so we decided, at any rate.

July 23rd, 2009, 6:42 AM
I prefer FR-LG. I liked Emerald, but it's not my favorite. And I really don't DP in my opinion. :p

July 23rd, 2009, 11:38 AM
Um I like Emerald the best because of the Battle Frontier

July 23rd, 2009, 6:43 PM
My favourite one is Emerald (Battle Frontier rules! ^`_´^)


Sweet Smoochum
July 23rd, 2009, 6:57 PM
Out of all of them, I like GSC the most. However, if this is 3rd gen only, I'll say LeafGreen.

(Once HGSS is out, I'll say that one is the best.)

July 23rd, 2009, 11:24 PM
I like Pokemon Crystal the best! than the other pokemon games. ^3^

July 24th, 2009, 1:24 PM
I like Pokemon Crystal the best! than the other pokemon games. ^3^

lol i do too but isnt this 3rd gen games?

July 24th, 2009, 10:17 PM
I beat r/s/e 6 times :) I do enjoy playing it.

July 25th, 2009, 12:00 AM
I would have to say Emerald and or silver Idk why I just love the games

July 25th, 2009, 2:50 AM
Via whole game series, Pokemon Colosseum.
In the GBA Generation, it has to be Pokemon LG/FR due to the fact it was nice seeing everything in color now.

July 25th, 2009, 2:51 AM
I'm naturally biased towards Emerald since it's the first Pokemon game I played.

July 25th, 2009, 6:29 AM
My Favs are, Yellow,Silver,Firered,Ruby,Emerald,Plat.

But thats just me.

EDIT:3rd Gen, Emerald.

August 3rd, 2009, 3:08 PM
I liked Emerald, although my favorite pokemon are all from the first gen games

August 3rd, 2009, 3:19 PM
Emerald and Platinum for me!

August 3rd, 2009, 3:35 PM
Ruby since it was the first of that generation. Emerald in close 2nd since it has all the new features much like I enjoyed with Crystal.

August 3rd, 2009, 4:34 PM
Since this is in the Adv threads (So Im guessing your asking about R/S/E?)
I would say Emerald cause it introduced the Battle Frontier and that made me strategize with teams alot more.

August 3rd, 2009, 6:41 PM
I would have to say Leafgreen, but Emerald is a close second!

August 3rd, 2009, 6:51 PM
Emerald for me, definately. I prefered it over Ruby/Sapphire... it had a little more "oomph" to it.
Fire Red + Leaf Green were also good... because they had Natsume/Sabrina in them. XD *Obsessed*

August 4th, 2009, 6:58 AM
Ah come on! It's got to be Firered. A remake of the old classic which started it all off.
Defo get's my vote

Dark Shaymin
August 4th, 2009, 8:50 AM
My definite favorite was Emerald. It had the best Battle Arena!

Air Pichu
August 4th, 2009, 9:53 AM
Emerald and Platinum. Emerald cause' it has the "original" Battle Frontier andPlatinum for well, no reason.

Shadow Umbreon Xd 002
August 4th, 2009, 9:56 AM
Emerld Ftw! I spent over three hundred hours on this game with the Battle Frontier and contests, this is defiantly the best Advance gen game.

August 4th, 2009, 6:49 PM
Third Gen?
I can't choose between Emerald/Leaf/Fire xP.

August 4th, 2009, 7:20 PM
Emerald and Firered
im stuck on both of these..... :P

August 4th, 2009, 11:02 PM
Emerald. even if it's not good for hacking :D

Live Update King
August 5th, 2009, 3:17 AM
Hacks followed by Firered. I like the original pokemon

August 5th, 2009, 3:50 AM
Ruby. I like it far more than any games, but talking out of 3rd would would be Mystery Dungeon 2: Explorers of Sky.

August 5th, 2009, 6:21 AM
Platinum, Emerald, FireRed are the best.
even tho i don't have a ds and i play it on an emulator i say Platinum for the graphics.. wi-fi etc..

August 5th, 2009, 6:22 AM
Emerald. I like LeafGreen aswell, it's really good, but Emerald wins it simply on the fact that pokemon sprites are animated

August 5th, 2009, 11:14 AM
I also love Ruby most too.

August 5th, 2009, 2:14 PM
crystel and yellow classics and with great storyline :) my vote

August 5th, 2009, 2:34 PM
FRLG are the best. ^^ They are stellar remakes of RB, which are wonderful games, just outdated.

Sakura Rain
August 5th, 2009, 2:59 PM
FireRed for me, with Emerald coming in at a close second. 3rd gen wasn't my favorite in the whole world, but I still enjoyed it.

A Real True Winner Is Me
August 5th, 2009, 3:00 PM
Fire Red, for the win.

Emerald comes second because of the Rayquaza cover.

August 5th, 2009, 3:09 PM
Pokemon Sapphire is my favorite, because it was the first 3rd gen game I ever played. It also features one of my favorite pokemon, Kyogre. And I've played my Sapphire for over 900 hours, making it my most-played game!

So Sapphire is my best. ^^

August 7th, 2009, 9:36 PM
Im going to have to say leaf green, Ive never finshed emerald, so yeah lol.

August 7th, 2009, 10:15 PM
Fire Red. Full stop. Best game out of all. It was the only Advance Gen game I got addicted to.

August 8th, 2009, 7:49 PM
Leaf Green 4 life! My first pokemon game

August 10th, 2009, 6:11 PM
From the GBA ones my favorite Was Leaf Green and emerald :P

August 10th, 2009, 10:31 PM
I love ruby too but I very don't like fire red and laef green

August 13th, 2009, 5:41 AM
FR/LG because it was my first pokemon game.

August 13th, 2009, 5:48 AM
Ill give my answer when I play Gold and Silver

August 13th, 2009, 8:00 AM
POkemon fired is the best but r/s/e is more complexe than fired

August 13th, 2009, 6:43 PM
FR/LG. Easily my favorite of the the 3rd Generation games. So many Pokemon to catch and so much to do, even after the Elite Four. And remakes are always great.

August 14th, 2009, 6:55 AM

August 14th, 2009, 7:28 AM
