Got out of Pokemon at this time. So had little impact on me like the previous.
Pretty much it for me. Was 10 when Pokemon R/B came out and loved it to death, was super psyched for G/S, then sometime between Japanese G/S and English Crystal release, I lost interest. Bought a DS lite when HG/SS came out and went back and played Plat and Emerald.
Other than Metagross, I just didn't like any pokemon from the third gen. I guess since I played it after gen 4, the fancy graphic jump from G/S didn't grab me, and neither did any other aspect of the game.
Gen 3 was my favorite gen, but the only thing I really, REALLY despised about it was the amount of water. They even added too many water types IMO. Surf/Dive/Waterfall 3 water HMs. Even the champion in Emerald was a water type trainer!
Minsc will lead with blade and boot! Boo will take care of the details.
Water really isn't the first thing I think of when I think of RSE. I just don't like the region, characters, Pokémon or music (barring the epic Victory Road music). The abundance of water isn't a good thing though.
