    As the title says,which Gen three Mon do you like and which do you dislike?

    I love Exploud,as pokemon are monsters this guy fits the title as one,great design IMO, and is super powerful now with Boomburst.

    Nosepass would have to be my least favourite,its just ugly,not a fan of this one.

    Be good to hear others

    Cheers.

      Favorite in this Gen has to be Milotic!
      Not only is it a stunning and well designed pokemon, its also quite powerful; especially if bred to learn Mirror Coat.
      The stress of finding Feebas back in Ruby was shocking, as it only appeared on like 4 certain tiles in a specific route (if i remember correctly)
      Then came the issue of getting enough berries to make the correct pokeblock to evolve it into Milotic!

      Least favourite has to be Plusle & Minun
      Yes I counted them as one because they're usually always together.
      They're basically Gen3's version of Pikachu...a pokemon that I don't like.
      All subsequent generations Pikachu rip-offs also make my hate list:
      Pachirisu
      Emolga
      Dedenne
      Togedemaru

      There is just no need for that. One is bad enough!

      My favourite from Gen 3 is a tough one as there are a lot of very cool designs, but I think Spheal comes close and I'm also a big fan of Gulpin. Love the Regi trio too but I don't usually count legendaries in these. But overall, Relicanth wins for sure!

      My least favourite... probably Barboach? There aren't many Gen 3 Pokés that I don't like but this guy is just a bit too ugly and boring for my tastes.

      I absolutely love both Latias and Latios. They have always been two of my favorite gen 3 Pokemon. I just love their designs and have fond memories of encountering and using them!

      Least would probably be Spinda. I wish I could say it was useful :<

        Let me know when the Exploud line is no longer officially Pokemon!

        My top favorites are the Mudkip line (yes u herd it fam, i liek mudkipz) and the Torchic line. They totally rock -- the design, the typing. :D

          I hate that the latter four have such wack names TBH as a youtuber I get my tongue tied,even more so with Togedemaru! After a few episodes I got the hang of it lol But yes I agree with what your saying mate.

            This Generation paved way for a lot of good Pokémon. It's so hard to pick just one favorite. There's Tropius, Grovyle, Kirlia...

            As for my least favorite, Silcoon and Cascoon. They're exactly the same Pokémon.

              I love many many gen 3 mons, so it's hard to pick. flygon, beautifly, sableye, Sceptile are up there, though.
              Least favorite of this gen (and some of my least favorite overall, in addition to swirlix): minun, plusle (cute but too gimmicky), gulpin/swalot. I think spinda is ok but pointless

              ya I do love me some Hoenn mons. It had some of my favorites in terms of design =) They're not the only ones either but I feel like I'll have half of the dex on my favorites list if I were to include them! lol

              Don't dislike any though. Not fan of a few but not to the point of disliking them. =p

                I absolutely adore Shedinja! Such a clever idea, making something that in real-life resembles an insect corpse into a Ghost-type. Its unique obtaining method and seemingly-amazing Ability are what originally got me into it, but I didn't fully appreciate the concept until we had a massive cicada outbreak some years and found the shells all over the place. Nuzleaf also holds a special place in my heart.

                Least-favorite would probably be Marshtomp. That face...

                  Can't say I really dislike most. Some may place at the bottom of my list but I don't dislike them, the only gens I can say for certain I dislike a mon is 7 (cough cough UBs cough)

                  Favorite gen 3 pokemon would be the ghost types, they are all cool, Shedinja, Sableye, Duskull line, Shuppet line. The starter lines are all good except Combusken and Marshtomp which look weird. Swablu line, Zangoose, Absol, Kecleon, Nincada line, Surskit/Masquerain, Electrike line, Aron line, Relicanth, Clamperl line, Feebas line, the fossil pokemon, Baltoy line, Trapinch line are all swell too. Basically most of the region.

                  Hoenn pokemon are exotic, dare I say more exotic than Alola pokemon. And cooler than a lot of them too

                  Now that's a tough one, I mean Hoenn is the region that introduced so many awesome new Pokemon for me!

                  Some of my favourites include Swellow, Altaria, Banette, Lunatone, Solrock, Grumpig, Camerupt, Sharpedo, Glalie, Zangoose and Exploud to name a few. As for the dislikes, the only one that comes to mind is Slaking.

                    Gardevoir, Absol, Latias and Latios are my favourites. I have come to appreciate Exploud as well. Not many I don't like, probably Barboach and Volbeat.

                    Skitty for life.

                    But Zangoose, Mawile, Combusken and Shuppet are also baes.

                      There are loads from this gen that I love but Absol is my all time favourite Pokémon so it was only ever going to be that.

                      Least favourite is probably Hariyama. It’s a boring design.

                      Stealing Sheep's idea!



                      I have a lot of favourites! Pretty much all of the above have amazing shinies as well (apart from Sableye). Generation 3 did a great job in its Pokémon designs. They're diverse enough to appeal to everyone's different tastes, although many of them have pretty subdued colouring.

                      As for least favourites, well... there are a couple of those as well, haha. Namely Crawdaunt, Hariyama, Ludicolo, Nuzleaf, Loudred, Nosepass and Volbeat.

                        When thinking of my favorites I definitely have a type. I don't mean psychic or fairy and etc., haha. I love Gardevoir, Milotic, Altaria, Latios/Latias, Delcatty, and Donphan.

                        I find Whismur, Whiscash, Pelipper/Wingull, and Spoink to be the most annoying and useless, personally. Slakoth is cute but he and all his friends are quite frustrating to play with.

                          I really like Banette and Chimecho, I feel they get overlooked a lot

                          least favorites are probably Plusle and Minun, and maybe Volbeat too. Illumise is cool.

                          God lol I didn't even try to narrow it down. I think gen 3 is very tight when it comes to Pokemon design. Everything looks great and as I went through the Hoenn Dex to pick some favorites of the batch, I couldn't find one I genuinely dislike. If I had to choose though, I would say Huntail. I think the Clamperl line is pretty unique, however I think Huntail could have been a little better. It's look is a little goofy and off-putting. Gorebyss is so pretty and I think something really edgy would have been a good foil to that, but instead we got something that looks a little silly. It's not hideous or anything, but still. Just one little bad egg in an otherwise near perfect batch of Pokemon.
