My favourites are the Johtos. They made sense. But some Hoenn pokemon like Spinda, well, what is it meant to be??????

Kanto was great. Johto I didn't like as much... tch, but Hoenn... it's got alot of Dragons. ^_______^ *Draconizes*

October 6th, 2005, 9:37 AM
Kanto is the best! And the only reason I think this is because of Charizard! Johto has pretty cool Pokemon too, and Hoenn, but Kanto is still the best. Go Kanto Pokemon!

October 6th, 2005, 10:53 AM
i like johto is the best followed by hoenn and then kanto...


October 6th, 2005, 11:06 AM
Kanto is the best! only cause of eevee and her evoluions lol

Johto. The Kanto Pokemon were nice but were rather limited with their overall strength and durability and selection of abilities, thus being rather finite for creativity or alternatives. (At R/B I had only three decent Pokemon to use and one was Mewtwo.). Whereas the Johto ones had a creativity and expansion and showed that there are other options (Like the Dark/Steel to the overused Psychics) out there. If only someone would explore them and the Pokemon, you cared about them and showed a lovely heightening to the mythos (both Ho-Oh's shtick and our own society's in general).

G/S blew my mind with all the possibilities there were and I played and acted on them nicely and it changed my way of thought of the game completely.

The Hoenn lot, beyond a few, I rather don't care about them. Just felt rather mechanical in the majority of the roster. Groudon/Kyorge being one of the main exceptions.

A pity. I hope the next lot will be more creative.

I liked all the genarations. But my favorite I have to say is Kento. You can't beat the originals. ;)

October 6th, 2005, 12:43 PM
You're so right, you can't beat the original. While the artwork in the Hoenn series is beautiful the storyline of the episodes in Kanto are the best in my opinion.

October 7th, 2005, 9:07 PM
Can't beat the old. Kanto all the way. Back then they were simple and nice. I dragon spitting fire and a turtle shooting water.

I didn't like Jhoto much but they were ok. It just that they made them so smooth. Like they were neo. What ever that means but it just decribe them the best. The only thing was dark and steel.

Hoenn was trying to hard to be cool.

Storylines are getting great it just I think they need to stop making new pokemon. But Kanto beats them all.

I think Hoenn had too many legendaries and dragons and gohsts(however you spell 'em.)

October 8th, 2005, 3:44 AM
Johto, Hoenn then Kanto.

I like more Pokemon in Johto than the other regions. Celebi, Espeon, Umbreon etc.

I prefer Johto pokemon because of pokemon like Totodile, cyndaquil, chikorita,girafarig and sentret.

October 8th, 2005, 3:57 PM
I love Johto, its just awesome, :)

October 8th, 2005, 4:42 PM
I still think that the original was the best. Complexity wasnt a big thing in Red/Blue/Yellow. Stalemate matches were few in number and annoying moves were only annoying not the decision to the entire match. When you saw that two trainers had excelent strategy and countinued down the match until both of them had to use Struggle was what resulted in some of the most exciting matches. Plus to see a Tangela stand upon a KO'd Mewtwos body was just as exhilirating. (I was the one with the Tangela). Gold/Silver/Crystal were great but not as good as the original. True they opened up new pokemon and new posibilities, but some of the moves truly were responsible for ending matches. I absolutely hate when battles go punch for puch. There is no strategy, or finesse. I love my deffense and showmanship. I LOVED to see the look on a persons face when they pulled out an Exeggutor out to face my Slowbro and my Slowbro hit him with Fire Blast. Im sure youre confuzed but yes Slowbro can learn Fire Blast in R/B/Y. I do not own Ruby/Saphirre/Emerald and the extended versions of Fire Red/Leaf Green but allot of the moves did get on my nerves when I played my cousins versions, like Protect. Tag team combat is kewl but it compleately throws the type strategy rulebook out the window. Personaly I think that an Onix should never beat a Lapras (mind you that they would both be on level 100) but tag teaming allows that possibility now. When games become too complex sure there is allot of strategy to consider, but I ask you this, "Where has the FUN gone to?"

I like the Hoenn generation the best. There are tons of competitive battling Pokemon(Like Salamence and Gardevoir), so that's why I like the Hoenn generation of Pokemon.

I like the Johto generation the most, as it introduced my favourite ever Pokemon- Tyranitar! And I still regard Pokemon Gold and Silver as the best Pokemon games, as they introduced the day and night factor, and introduced the Johto generation. Plus the Legendary Pokemon for this lot are so cool...

October 10th, 2005, 12:54 PM
I'm more familier with the Kanto ones and like these ones quite alot. Also like the Johto ones too. But I think the Hoenn ones are the good ones. I like new things and well... these are new.

October 12th, 2005, 4:41 PM
I like tons of pokemon from every generation, but as far as the games go I'd say the Johto Generation (GSC). I loved the Johto region. I also liked that the game was a lot longer than the others. You had sixteen badges to earn instead of eight. You actually had to do quite a bit of stuff before you'd completely beaten the game and it became so boring that the only thing you could do was start over. I also remember trying to get that Buena's password thing every evening, and going around new areas at different times of the day to see if anything interesting happened. The game stayed interesting longer that way. Not to mention I'm a big Kamon fan *is shot*.

Hoenn is my second favorite region, but really only because it has some cool towns and gym leaders (haha).

And as you may be able to tell, I'm not really into battling my friends or anything like that. lol.

October 13th, 2005, 9:39 AM
Johto no reason really but i love them all !!!

October 14th, 2005, 6:04 AM
hoeen for sure i'm sorry if you don't like what i chose but it's just what i chose

October 14th, 2005, 2:14 PM
i like johto that was the generation i saw the most.

October 14th, 2005, 3:21 PM
I like Kanto the most cause the gym leaders there are much stronger.. I wouldn't mind Johto cause I get to catch the cute little Sneasal ^^ and the legendaries there are the best(in meh opinion)!! For some reasons Hoenn is meh least fave region..

October 14th, 2005, 5:44 PM
Spinda's supposed to be a panda I think...I don't quite get the "spin" reference, though. XD

I chose Kanto, to me it will always be the greatest generation. <33 The first games for Kanto were the best as well IMO. <33 *is obsessed with Pokemon Yellow* X3


October 15th, 2005, 12:20 AM
Kanto I think, stick with the originals!

October 15th, 2005, 4:21 AM
I Support All Your Votes I Still Like The Others

October 15th, 2005, 5:01 AM
All I'd have to say were okay,each with they're own cute little monster which you can never hate.But Hoenn barely wins,I just love the way it looks,and the gym leaders there are also kinda cool.
Oh!!Plus it also has pokemon contests...yep.

October 15th, 2005, 7:27 AM
Definitely Kanto... gotta love the classics.

October 15th, 2005, 5:43 PM
Like ybur angel i like hoeen for the pokemon contests

October 16th, 2005, 12:57 AM
Definitely Johto. You get the best starters and you get larvitar

October 17th, 2005, 8:41 AM
johto why coz garry was in it

Shiny Meganium
October 17th, 2005, 9:25 AM
Definitely Johto. You get the best starters and you get larvitar

Those are some of my reasons for liking johto best too.

October 17th, 2005, 9:28 AM
Definately not Johto. It has 3 of my favourite Pokmon (Chinchou, Shuckle and Dunsparce), but all other 248 are just... plain stupid.

Then I had to think about either Kanto or Hoenn.
Well, let's see Kanto... It is the first season, so it is the most original ones.
Thoug I dont like much of them, I have to say they are pretty intersting. Pokmon like Magneton, Kabuto, Snorlax, and the list goes on, are ones I really like. But then theres...

Hoenn. No matter what everyone says, it's the one that revolutioned the world of Pokmon. The combinations, the unique and weird creatures... And there is where the Top 4 Pokmon of my favourites list are (Kirlia, Spinda, Absol, Corphish). I voted for Hoenn, but Im not saying Kanto is bad. [I just hate the Johto Generation -_-;]

October 18th, 2005, 2:42 AM
I would have to say kanto,cant beat the original.Hoesnn comes in second and Johto third.There wasnt anything wrong with Johto,I just didnt get into it as much.Hoenn is really great because they have been really creative with the Pokemon.But kanto takes it for me because most of my favorites come from there,and I liked the gym leaders more.

October 18th, 2005, 3:28 AM
forgive me if i seem a little old school, but the kanto region has to be the best. It's just the classic pokemon, you have to respect that. Some of the Hoeen pokemon just don't even look like pokemon. Johto was pretty good, especially with the day and night and the different pockets in the bag were a life saver.

October 18th, 2005, 6:47 AM
Some of the Hoeen pokemon just don't even look like pokemon.

And the Johto Pokmon are Clichd.
That's why I like Hoenn, the Pokmon are diferent from just "based on an animal" or "legendary beast". (Yeah, <3 Regis)

Kanto without a doubt because of the originality and my favorite pokemon are in that generation: Pidgeot,Eevee and it's evolutions, the starters, Articuno, Moltres, Zapdos, Mew, Mewtwo, Snorlax, Chansey and the list goes on.

October 20th, 2005, 9:34 AM
hoenn cause of blaziken.And wellI forgot

October 21st, 2005, 8:32 PM
My personal favorite was Johto. I loved the Pokemon they made. They were so new and origonal. Hoenn are all... creepy and Kanto are the classics. Definatly Johto.

October 21st, 2005, 8:36 PM
johto because it showed more misty than kanto & hoenn

November 2nd, 2005, 3:21 PM
I like the first one. Those Pokémon have been around forever, and they do seem to be original, don't they? And they seem more like animals than some of the others from the latter generations ^^;
Although I give points to Johto -- some of my favorite Pokémon are from that generation.

November 2nd, 2005, 4:06 PM
Generally, I like them all.
But for games, it'd have to be Johto. I don't know why, it just is.

Johto, cause its the first region I ever played in. Does that make Johto my home country or something in the game?

=P I'm Johtonese. Whee!

I do like the old, kanto pokemon but I also like Hoen. So I just voted kanto.

November 5th, 2005, 11:44 AM
The best Pokémon can be found there
also my favorites: suicune, Ho-oh,Tyrannitar

November 5th, 2005, 12:47 PM
You forgot Orre

But yet my true favorite (believe it or not) was Hoenn because it was so interactive. I mean, heck, since when has an area actually had rain? And the contests, GOD, those were fun. And those dang secret bases, and being able to transfer it to a friend's game. ^_^
