I love Serena but I'm not too fond of Calem, and I love Rosa but I dislike Nate. That means I'd probably have to pick Gen VII, since I love both of the female designs and am still pretty happy towards the male designs. It just barely beats out Gen II for me, because I feel like Gold and Ethan blend together (assuming they're supposed to be different characters like Kris and Lyra) and I can't tell the difference.

Yeah, I can see not being as big a fan of Calem's design. I like him but not so much the hat haha. Serena though is awesome!

Unova is where my heart will be forever though, potentially. Even if Nate's hair is like a bird's nest I still love all four of them. ❤️

Platinum Dawn is my favourite protagonist but I'm not as keen on Lucas and the HGSS protagonist designs are both downgrades from GSC.

My favourite is probably Gen 3, in particular the designs for Emerald May and Leaf.

Gen 3 had the best protagonist ever, Leaf, and the only male protagonist worth talking about, Wes from Colosseum, so I guess 3rd gen.

A few other gens had one great protagonist each: Gen 4 had Dawn, Gen 5 had Rosa, and Gen 6 had Serena, but otherwise, the protagonists from those games were forgettable at best.

Gen 3. May and Brendan are great because they are powerful rivals keeping you on track, but also incredibly helpful because that's just their nature. I especially love how they contrast with Wally, as they are like your equal while Wally falls behind.
