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 Ten

Generation IV (Sinnoh)

Some of my favorite Pokemon are in this generation. Dialga, Lopunny, Weavile, Glaceon, Rotom, and Infernape are in this generation.

By far the best pokemon generation that exists reflecting the highest potential of pokemon games and the true joy of befriending the divine creatures. I started playing the gen with diamond which at first bored me cause I did not take an effort to understand the essence of the plot and the beauty of the sinnoh region. Then I turned up to gen 5 games which I enjoyed a lot but while that I also discovered about heartgold which too belongs to gen 4 and is the greatest remake. After that I just wanted to give a try to the original gen 4 games hence went for platinum. The most legendary game of all time (pokemon and otherwise also) was in my destiny which imparted in my mind an unforgettable adventure. This time I discovered an epic quest and such a fantastic story line with vivid pokemon to capture in my pokeballs and senses too. Gen 4 of pokemon anime series is too the best quest of our protagonist with all kinds of charms and legendary battles. No gen would ever be able to overtake gen ...more

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.

From the Pokemon to the cities to the gyms, everything about this game is legendary. This generation had by far the best Champion in Pokemon History as well as a really engaging storyline. To top it off, it gave us amazing evolutions and pre-evolutions of already existing but less memorable Pokemon. From when you start your journey with amazing and perfect starters, to the end when you capture the best legendaries ever in a Pokemon game, the Sinnoh region is amazing.

Generation III (Hoenn)

This generation includes Rayquaza (my favorite legendary), Aggron, Sableye, Metagross, Banette, and Swampert.

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.

Come on... How is this not number one all knows this is hoenn also known as the region that we had treecko and mudkip and torchic remember blaziken sceptile and swampert? Come on this should be higher

Generation II (Johto)

I like how you can have shiny pokemon and it is used for the time capsule exploit (which is great) in the first generation.

This generation contains many great Pokemon, such as Umbreon (my favorite eeveelution), Typhlosion, Houndoom, Kingdra, Blissey, and Ampharos.

This was my first generation and I didn't really know how to play so I am buying it again and I am loving it mainly because of totadile but also because there is sixteen gyms and the supreme 8 and 2 champions so ya its pretty cool

Suicune, heracross, scizor, feraligatr, lugia... What more can I say?

Generation 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

These games include Pokemon Black and White and Pokemon Black 2 and White 2

Generation I (Kanto)

I, by no means, am a genwunner. I do appreciate other generations and I love them (except you, gen 5), but Generation 1 is by far my favourite.

It was glitchy? NOPE. I never encountered a single glitch unless I had intended to do it. And whilst there are a lot of glitches, I think that they play such a small part in this great generation.

It had a fantastic story. Listen here,I love all the other evil teams, but there was always something special about Team Rocket. I don't know if it was their design, their name or anything, I've just always liked them. The gym leaders were pretty weird at times, but they were easy to get to unlike what it is in generation 6. I love how you have to get to Celadon City before you can get to Saffron City so you can get water. There are lots of secret areas and the legendaries are great. I love how that at times, it can be so difficult because Snorlax is in the road but then you realise you've got to go to Lavender Tower to get the ...more

While generation I is my least favorite generation, it has many good Pokemon. Raichu, Mewtwo, Gengar, Snorlax, Weezing, and Aerodactyl are a few.

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?

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

Generation VI (Kalos)

Chesnaught, Delphox, Greninja, Sylveon, Talonflame, and Pangoro are all in generation VI.

Far superior to gen 2 and 3, alola too. I just adore the design and the mechanics of this region's pokemon. The only flaw this generation had was the fact that it needed to be longer.

It is awesome and it is the generation that got me into buying the game.

I would probably rank it higher than Alola at least.. No offense to generation VII of course.

Generation VII (Alola)

Aloha has many good Pokemon, like Mimikyu, Silvally, Lunala, Celesteela, Tsareena, and Togedemaru.

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

Perfectly balances fun and difficulty

Best Pokemon game in a LONG time, and has the best story out of any. Certainly gets my vote.

Generation VIII (Galar)

All the new pokemon are pretty rad, and I love Galar's starters! And my Cinderace is pretty OP.

I want Eternatus and Runerigus real bad. I don't care that Game Freak is lazy. I'm getting the game on Switch!

The best generation, with my favorite pokemon , Hatterene, being in this generation. Runerigus, Perrserker, Inteleon, Grappaloct, and Coalossal are some other great Pokemon in this generation.

So looking forward to this

Generation VIII (Talambes)

It brings so much nostalgia

Fake, it doesn't exist

Where is this place

I love this one

Generation IX (Selokos)

Seems legit
