Gen IV gave us a brilliant story line and expanded on the Pokemon of Generation I by giving them awesome evolutions and creating a pretty diverse metagame. It also gave Gold and Silver an expansion on what was already a hugely extensive game.
Gen III gave us 3 Awesome starters, A Poor quality Elite 4 (With the exception of Drake and Steven Stone as Champion), An admittedly awesome story involving legendaries for the first time in a Pokemon game and most importantly a remake of Red and Green.
