Why Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald get hate.

Best gen since the 1st, so I don't hate it.

None of those reasons bothered me too much, and I don't have anything that springs to mind that isn't on that list.

I have no complaints at all. Best gen in the series.

My biggest gripe with RSE would have to be Events.

They could have US events be state-wide, bo nope, they had to restrict Gen 3 events to the Northeast.

I was in Hawai'ii during Gen 3, and my parents aren't the kind who'd pay hundreds of dollars just so I could go somewhere to get something for a game.

Thankfully they learned that lesson Gen 4 onwards.

"Gameboy Advance."

...How is that a reason? Did people treat it like it was never gonna catch on and I never noticed?

The original GBA was pretty awkward. It was clunky, the screen was hard to look at (though it was an issue with past gameboys as well), and it all around just wasn't all that special (edit: at least in my opinion). I had a friend that had one, and I'd played it enough to not really like it. The SP, however, was awesome. It took everything about the original GBA that I didn't like, and it fixed it.

The only bad thing about the original GBA was the lack of a backlight (which was pretty bad though). Otherwise, it probably had the best design of any handheld. I miss those shoulder buttons.

To be clear, I don't hate the Gen 3 games.

That being said, my biggest complaint when they came out was the lack of day and night. It was a big feature of Gold/Silver/Crystal, and it seemed weird that they'd have gotten rid of it. I've long since gotten over it though. It's a pretty miniscule issue, and so I've let it go.

Only thing that bothers me about the games are the lack of day/night cycle, the music isn't that great either but that's about it.

The only complaints I have about it are in retrospect. No physical/special split, and one-use TMs.

But I can't hold those against it.

My favorite games in the series story region/music/adventure-wise, but for the two reasons I mentioned above, I like Gen V more.

Obviously, having a remake of RSE in Gen V would address both of those problems, so I'm really hoping it happens. Though I'm sure they'll ruin the music.
For those players who don't speak Australian, we have provided an English translation of the previous scene. Do you want to replay the scene?

Other, because it is the best gen in the series and people like to complain about nothing

They're the ones that feel the least like pokémon games to me, really. The feeling I feel when I play it is different,for some reason. Gen 5 is the same, but in a better way.
