      Can I choose all of them? Like seriously I love the music from all of the games way too much to be voting here XD;

      They all are too unique since each region has a certain mood or expressive motif.

          For me definitely Ruby/Sapphire. First series I started with, and I still remember some of the surfing tunes. Can't remember for the life of me what Black/White music is like.

          I thought Generations I and II had the best music. Or the most unique music, anyway. But that might just be nostalgia talking.

            The series has always had great music. I can't think of any Pokemon game I disliked the soundtrack of.

            That said, Gen I + II really had some of the most memorable music in the series. Even though they're chiptunes, the melodies hold up surprisingly well. Gary's champion theme is my current morning alarm

            Generation three had the best music, in my opinion. Few of my favorites would have to be Elite Four encounter, Regi battle theme, Lilycove City, Fallarbor Town, rival theme, and Magma/Aqua battle theme. Gen six had some great music as well, and so did generation one.

              Yeah, personally my favorite music came from Gen IV. I love the DPP soundtracks.

                Gen 3. Gen 1 being a close second.

                I hate the cheap Gen 5 soundfont and the remixes. The Gen 6 music quality is much better but the actual music doesn't interest me that much

                Absolutely love the battle themes from Gen 3, especially Deoxys omg

                  Gen III is the best overall very pleasant field music but very exciting battle music.

                  However the best indervidual music must be the Swords of Justice theme in Gen V,sounds epic.

                    VOTING FOR HOENN hands down. As much as I hated the remixes in FR/LG from all the great chiptunes in gen I Kanto, the melodies and trumpets of Hoenn are still today the best music from any pokémon game imo. Just remember the first time you went into Route 104 and heard the wonderfully adventurous music there... Or when you struggled through the ashes of Route 113 listening to the strangely melodramatic and different tune there... Or when you went through the rain and all those darn Tropiuses and Oddishes around Fortree and heard the two pompous melodies played in those forests... Or when you were outside of Mt Pyre and heard the somehow awesome intro to the music there... Or when you battled Team M/A on top of Mt Chimney... Or when you battled the Team leader... OR WHEN YOU BATTLED STEVEN (Wallace maybe?) at the end, that music was pretty epic. Or the ending theme, that brought tears to my eyes. Not to mention the title screen music. Still today the best title screen tune overall for pokémon games imo. It was just perfect.

                    Yeah. I loved the Hoenn music. :3

                    Then there are of course some of my favorite tunes from other regions. Route 10 in Unova, Violet City in Johto, some of the route music Sinnoh and the wonderful Pokémon League theme from Kalos. And the original, 8 bit or something Hall of fame tune from Pokémon Yellow. <3

                      I have to say Gen 1 overall. The current gen's gym theme is probably my favorite battle theme of all the games though.

                        I will say that Gen 3 had the best music soundtrack out of each gen

                          For me it is Gen 2 with Gen 3 and Gen 4 close behind. As soon as I heard the surfing theme and the music for Tin Tower I never looked back.

                          I honestly can't pick just one generation worth of music as my favorite, as they've all got a few themes that I really like, and they also have a few that I'm kind of 'meh' about.

                          If I have to choose though, I'd go with Gen II very slightly edging out Gen III, with I and V right behind that. I've always been a sucker for the Game Corner music in the second gen games, and the Ruins of Alph and the Lance/Red theme are two of my favorite tracks as well.

                            Damn, I misclicked. I meant to hit Generation III, but I hit Generation IV. Anyway, Generations III and VI had my favorite music.

                              Gen 3's music wins for me, hands down. The Drought, flood, Magma/Aqua leader battle and the Regi battle music were my favorites from it. I also liked some of Gen 5's, which is why I also voted for it.

                                I like Sinnoh's in game music. The battle sequences where the most excellent that I've heard by far

                                I have a soft spot for the Gen III music because it's very catchy. I also like the Gen VI music; I even downloaded the whole X/Y soundtrack from iTunes because I liked it a lot.

                                  I absolutely adore Gen 2's music.

                                  Definitely the third; it was the only generation where I liked almost every battle theme. The regis, E4, legendary battle, and champion were especially breathtaking! Could listen to them all day.

                                  It's a tie between Gen III and V for me. The music in Hoenn is just so awesome and really makes me feeling like I'm actually on an adventure. I love all the trumpets and drums. I found a lot of themes in Gen V so very catchy and well composed too. I love that some themes such as theme for Village Bridge certain parts/layers you can turn on or off. It makes the music of that location more unique. I haven't played Y yet so I can't judge Gen VI yet. I should be starting a game once I get a 3DS from a friend so I should be able to hear the music soon. I hear it's excellent.

                                    Going with Gen V. There are a lot of memorable tracks for me in Hoenn and Sinnoh, but I think Unova had the nicest music overall.

                                    Gen VI is certainly making a name for itself, though~

                                    Chose Gen III & Gen VI, both of them are on par with one another in terms of overall music quality. Some of my favourite soundtracks of the franchise come from the Hoenn & Kalos region. n_n
