Hmmm. I think I might be the only person so far that's said this.. But I honestly hated every single Gen III game XD

FR/LG were just bad because all they added to it was the Sevii Islands postgame. Nothing much different from the original games.

RSE did have some very nice things in them, but I just didn't like the Hoenn region at all. Some of the Pokemon from RSE are amazing, like Ludicolo as one example. I just didn't like the story at all. I can't really explain why, I just feel that Gen III was the worst generation of games. D:

As long as these struggles are aimless, we will all be standing still.

for me i would have to say FR/LG. mostly in part that it was my first Pokemon game. now i have no hate for R/S/E but it didn't have anything to do after the elite four that was significant. i could play FR/LG for hours even after the elite four. mostly because of the vs seeker.

The interface and design of fire red is perfect and makes it addictive and more fun.
The interface of emerald less, BUT emerald/ruby/sapphire have a really fun and long story and a really creative map!

I liked the Houen region the most thus far, so I'd have to say Sapphire was better. I just felt like I was treading old ground in FR/LG, and I didn't have any nostalgic feelings whatsoever. For me, it felt like it was too soon anyway. A generation 1 remake would have made more sense coming out now than then.

Other Stuff That's Totally Uncool and Not Worth Your Time!

Duh, RSE. Why did I pick this username XD

The Hoenn games were in fact a good step towards a natural feel, and I should say they were the games I enjoyed the most. I really liked the new features that came along, and the many aspects of the region itself, like a city only accessible through underwater or air.

RSE all the way.

I loved these games so much, and are by far my favorite of any Pokemon game.

RSE, no doubt. But mostly because I like RBY much more than FrLg.

Hoenn is my favourite region for locations and pokemon designs, so I'll have to vote rse. I love all regions but Kanto is probably my least favourite to explore. (even though it was the first region I explored)

This is extremely difficult, because I absolutely adored both of those games, but in the end, I'm going with the answer everyone else gave - RSE. But only by a hair!

At first I wanted to say LG FR, but I think I'll have to go with RSE. The towns were just so awesome and I loved being able to make secret bases. They were just so awesome. LG FR were so awesome too because it was a remake of the first ones, but RSE were exciting and new.

I liked both games however I'd prefer R/S/E. I liked it's soundtrack, locations, characters, plot and Pokemon introduced. It was all done so well.

R/S/E are the superior imo. I think that Gen III and IV were the peaks of Pokémon, maybe it was 'cause when I was most into the games, though

The Gen I remakes were fun, but they just weren't special in the way R/S/E were to me.
