        1. A region that was really good to me, made me wanna explore it endlessly
        2. The starters were diverse. A chick, axolotl and gecko as starters were just..different.
        3. The legendaries were based on weather.
        4. Expanding on the events - e.g. Jirachi, Deoxys, etc.
        6. Revamped graphics
        7. Team Aqua and Magma - just being in the world during a 2 sided war going on in the underworld, and getting into it was thrilling..
        8. Abilities
        9. Actually finding out who your father is (and him being the gym leader is much better)
        10. The music. <3

          1) A region that you were merely a part of, as opposed to one (like Unova) that was player-centric.
          2) Flannery - She showed the fact that not all gym leaders are evil killing machines, and some are just normal, inexperienced people.
          3) Tropius - I've always loved Tropius, but I have no idea why.
          4) Kyogre - I love Kyogre; it looks so amazing, and gives me chills.
          5) The fact you're caught up in a battle between two underworld groups. It reminds me of civilian casualties in war.
          6) The desert - one of my favourite bits; Pokemon is great at exhibiting new ecosystems.
          7) Underwater - It adds an element of excitement for me.
          8) The 'other' team's leader - In Sapphire, Maxie always treats you with respect and dignity, which I adored.
          9) The natural theme of the Pokemon.
          10) The natural theme of the region.

                  1. C'mon, remakes of where it all began! Who doesn't want to play that?
                  2. Emerald's plot - the danger seems much more real than in DPPt (where only one guy in the Battle Zone noticed anything happening).
                  3. The legendaries! (and only one of the main trio is dragon).
                  4. Dive
                  5. Sevii Islands - muchos enjoyablos.
                  6. LeafGreen - your rival becomes the champion!
                  7. Speed > DPPt.
                  8. I was around 10 at the time of Gen III - actual pokémon trainer starting out age.
                  9. Milotic - everyone's main obstacle to being able to "catch 'em all"
                  10. Battle Frontier! The original and the best.

                        - Can play it any where I go
                        - I love 3rd generation Pokemon the most
                        - Hoenn is one of the best Regions ever
                        - Recurring Characters like Wally and Steven makes my day
                        - Trick House a very cool place
                        - Sevii Islands are also not that bad.

                        Boy there are many inside me brain but I think I should stop now

                              5- Much better movepool than Gen II for every Pokémon

                              7- Flamethrower, Ice Beam and Thunderbolts are TM and easily obtained
                              8- Running Shoes and two different Bikes are fun to use
