    Which pokemon generation had the best looking graphics/tilesets for you?

    For me gen 4 was the best especially the HGSS versions.

        gen 3 doesn't look amazing on its own imo but some hacks/fangames have managed to make it look absolutely incredible with just some tweaks and custom palettes.
        and exact opposite for gen 5. it looks awesome in game, but nearly all attempts to use that style for fan works turn out awful haha.

          I can only agree to that. I love playing rom hacks of 3rd Gen Games especially FireRed/LeafGreen ones. I would love to do one of my own. I even have 151 Pokemon for the region sorted out already but it's so time consuming and really not easy to do. But it is fun nonetheless. If only I could design my own Mega Evo Sprites...
          I would love to be able to make my own Megas. Who wouldn't love to see Mega Golduck with added Psychic Type or Mega Luxray with added Dark Type

          Gen 5 graphics would look fantastic if it wasn't so pixelated half the time. I liked the graphics for the cutscenes in XY and Gen 7 tho.

          I'm curious to see what Gen 8/Pokemon Switch will look like though. Think about it--Pokemon's gonna be on a much more powerful system than the 3DS/a handheld, there's a lot of room for graphical improvement I would think. Especially considering that the 3DS seemed like it could barely handle Gen 7.

            I think gen 6 is just total eyecandy. Walking into Parfum Palace in XY still takes my breath away. The trainers were ridiculously beautiful, just look at how well Valerie is designed or even Diantha with her Audrey Hepburn inspiration. The pokemon look sweet enough to eat, from Florges to Auroras to Xerneas. In my humble opinion there is not one really bad design. It is just a walking art show. There is extraordinary detail when you play with you pokemon in Poke Amie or when they mega evolve or you watch the cut scene. From an visual standpoint these games are magic, I think they are so underrated.

            I do like gen 4 graphics though too, especially HGSS when you could see your Pokemon following you. The games look adorable and I love how they overhauled the gyms, making Morty's gym more like a haunted house or Bugsy's a ride through the insect hive. I think the introduction of the 3d mix was really fun but did not in my opinion stray far from the peaceful world Johto is meant to be.

              Gen 6 and 7 are my favorite, the 3D makes everything feel more lively.

                This may just be nostalgia talking, but I'm still a huge fan of Gen. II graphics. They feel more mature to me, less cartoony than later generations (especially the player backsprites). I honestly wouldn't complain if they started making the games with these kind of graphics again, but I know there are plenty of others who would think otherwise.

                HGSS were also great (I especially love the Ecruteak/Bell Tower area), but I'm kind of disappointed that they didn't add a "Nostalgia Goggles" item in addition to GB Sounds, enabling you to play the game with Gen. II graphics with devamp sprites of Gen. III-IV Pokémon. What disappointed me most about these games, however, was the lack of room customization. I want my N64 and Big Lapras Doll. :(
