Best Pokemon Generations

Pokemon is a legendary Nintendo gaming franchise. There are 6 pokemon generations. Some are better than others. We want your opinion on which one's the best.

The Top TenXW

1Generation IV (Sinnoh)

Generation IV brought us so many differences that it was ridiculous. We got the Physical/Special split, which made so many useless Pokemon usable (except Flareon, who still didn't get Flare Blitz until X and Y). We got wi-fi, which is enough said right there. Cynthia is still regarded as the greatest champion in all of Pokemon. Cyrus is an amazing evil team leader, and more than makes up for the goofiness of his grunts. Generation IV saw the return of the Day/Night feature, which was oddly cut from Generation III. And there is even more on top of that, and Diamond and Pearl are considered the weakest games of Generation IV! Heart Gold and Soul Silver are AMAZING remakes of Gold and Silver. It adds many things and even lets you have your favorite Pokemon follow you around in the overworld. Pokemon Platinum is by far the best Pokemon game, fixing most of the things wrong with Diamond and Pearl.

Glad Gen 4 is getting the love it deserves. Always loved Platinum, probably my second favorite Pokemon game. Cryus was my favorite Villain in any of the Pokemon games. He was so mysterious and so psychopathic that it made him a really scary dude. Hopefully Gen 7 will have interesting characters as well. - cjWriter1997

These games include Pokemon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum and Pokemon Heart Gold and Soul Silver

2Generation III (Hoenn)

I chose Treecko when I was little and played through the game. I vividly remember levelling it up and getting stronger as I continued the journey. I remember taking on Rayquaza at Sky Pillar, defeating Wallace at the E4, and finally, getting strong enough to defeat Steven Stone at Meteor Falls. The journey was unforgettable, and whenever I think of it, a wave of nostalgia engulfs me.

The First Pokemon game I ever played was Omega Ruby me picking Torchic beating the gyms, than saving the world, beating Steven, and finally The Delta Episode now I have nine Pokemon games ya nine.

This was the first generation I played. Also, who else is excited for Omega-Ruby and Alpha-Sapphire coming out in November?

This was the first Pokemon region played in now I have 7 games

4Generation I (Kanto)

The main series games in this generation were glitchy messes, extremely unbalanced, and gave birth to the most annoying group or people. What more must I say? - TitaniumToaster

This game might be glitchy but still it was 15 years ago. If you say it crappy due to glitches and such then your spoiled and don't understand limitations at the time

These games include Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow

5Generation V (Unova)

I love Johto (Heartgold) and it was my first gen and after I found out about it, I got into Pokemon. Then on my tenth birthday I got Pokemon Black (Practically begged parents) Diamond and Mario. I immediately played Black and I love everything a bout it. My second gen and by far my 2nd favorite. I love you Black and White 2. Good times

It had a great story, amazing characters, the Pokemon (for the most part) were well-designed, The region of Unova is one of the most diverse in any Pokemon game, and the soundtrack is one of the best I've ever heard. So WHY do so many people hate it!?

Best music, some really cool pokemon like Krookodile, Bisharp, Scrafty, Serperior

Unova is the best, and anyone who disagrees is dumb. The End.

I got Pokemon Moon, and so far it is really fun. - cjWriter1997

Perfectly balances fun and difficulty

Adds a lot of things to Pokemon that people were not expecting
