    R/S/E for me because I was fed up to play Kanto in so many games as well Hoenn specially in Emerald offers variety of cool new things

      I think that FR is better in some ways...
      The pixel art of FR is better.
      The ability to battle trainers again whenever you want (VS Seeker)
      I Felt that the game was bigger because it had the sevi islands

      Anyway that's not the point...
      The best pokemon game could have existed on the GBA
      Nintendo didn't have the brains to do it.
      That's why Rom hacks exist.
      You see... In my opinion, neither of the Gen 3 games are completed.
      All lack something.
      The main thing that disappointed me about R/S/E was that there wasn't any VS Seeker.
      Waiting for trainers to battle you again sucks.
      FR lacks weather effects, it doesn't have a time system, moving pkmn.

      I'd go with Ultra Violet
      It's a hack of FR..
      It's basically FR with all the pokemon... Some New maps, some new events, overall very good, could use better graphics...

        R/S were new and exciting but felt very unpolished. That said, Sapphire was my first pokemon game and I played the crap out of it.

        FR/LG were excellent remakes, and had much better looking maps and interfaces. I've never played the original games, so they were also new for me.

        Emerald takes the cake though. An expanded storyline, the graphics from FR/LG, and finally a good postgame make it my favorite by far. It also brought back pokemon animations, which help the game feel so much more alive.

        So I'd say the games got progressively better, with R/S and FR/LG both bringing good things to the table, and Emerald combined those good things into an awesome game.

          This is a little hard for me. R/S/E were when my interest in Pokemon was at its prime and my friends and I had wonderful memories playing the games. On the other hand, FR/LG had a lot more to do and the inclusion of the VS Seeker made it a really great game. I say both.

            I like the sevii island quest in FR/LG.

              This is a tough decision. Though i have to go with r/s/e. The revamp in emerald, the expansive battle frontier drew me in (if its replay value were counting, emerald introduced quite a lot of facilities in the frontier as it opened up new opportunities in battling; multi-battle system actually won me over), as well as the introduction of the berry planting. Although i have to admit nintendo gave justice to the creation of pokemon fr/lg and that it was a great remake (much better than hg/ss despite gsc being my most favorite pokemon version), I would choose rse over it.

                Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald gave us a new type of story (which has since made it to a trend in Pokemon games), gave us new Pokemon, gave us time-based events, and gave us even more interesting mechanics, such as the Mach and Acro bikes, or the berries found across the vast region. (Oh, did I mention the trumpets? Love em.)

                Fire Red and Leaf Green gave us back what many wanted again, the old style of games, no clock-based events or grow-able berries, access to old Pokemon almost impossible to get otherwise, and giving back that old feeling of Gen. one while still maintaining the feel of a new game.

                Truly, both are masterpieces, but, because of the various new features that Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald (especially Emerald) give to us, they beat Fire Red and Leaf Green quite easily. This is of course, only opinion.

                (Also, maaan, Emerald, whole ton of features not even R/S could give us.)

                  I liked Kanto better in G/S/C, I don't really know why maybe it's for nostalgic reasons?

                  Anyway I voted for R/S/E & I hope they remake them soon!

                    Hopefully after X and Y. I forgot about the gem parts, I haven't played LG in a loooong time. Too bad you can't do the mew glitch. Oh, and the silph co. was annoying and made me want to chuck my gameboy against a wall.

                      I'm going to say Leaf Green; not because I feel it's the better designed game. Leaf Green was the Pokemon game I spent ages playing, my first one and the one that was shown to me. When I tried to buy Emerald instead I got sent a broken copy. Having never actually completed the game; got to the Elite Four on a ROM. I'm saying Leaf Green, due to the nostalgia involved.

                        I think this poll is really no contest. I LOVE Kanto. But The Hoenn region is just beautiful. Plus the secret bases were alot of fun.

                          FRLG, because Kanto is my favorite region and the fact that you can fight the E4 twice. Hoenn was really cool, though, and I loved battling Steven in emerald.

                          Since Hoenn introduces new Pokemon unlike FRLG, I'd choose RSE. However picking one over the other does no justice to the choice left out IMO because both RSE and FRLG are great games.

                            I'd choose R/S/E over Fr/Lg because it has better graphics in my opinion, has more types of game play (2 different Bikes, Contests, etc.), more Pokemon, able to evolve more Pokemon (Espeon & Umbreon), a better soundtrack, a father, Pokemon battle animations (Emerald Only) and the Battle Frontier (Emerald Only). But if anything, I still like Fr/Lg a whole lot.

                            I prefer R/S/E over FR/LG but my overall favorite is Emerald. It was just the best game out of the 5 because it was just amazing. I love the Pokemon from Hoenn more than the Pokemon from Kanto. To me Hoenn looks like a more interesting Region (even with too much water) than Kanto and the Battle Frontier was the reason why I still played Emerald even after I defeated the Elite Four.

                              My vote has to go to R/S/E. I loved everything about those games. I loved a lot of the new pokémon, the region, and the look. Most of all, I loved the story. The story is what really hooked me into those games, and I still enjoy playing it over and over. Not to mention the post-game stuff they included in Emerald. That added a lot of hours to my playtime. FR/LG are great games, but R/S/E (more specifically, Emerald) are better in my opinion.
