I'd have to go with the 3rd generation. Ironic how the 3rd gen is my least favorite generation overall as well.

I liked each generation for different reasons. I can't pick just one.

3rd, though I do enjoy 4th, and BW2 might have the best soundtrack of all the games

I'll never understand what people find so great about the 3rd gen music. I thought it was by far the worst, I couldn't stand listening to the GBA's awful attempt at mimicking trumpets. -_-

4th gen music is solid though, and 5th gen from what I've heard from it so far.

The compositions of RSE were good, it was just the soundfont let it down really. Not necessarily because of how the trumpets sounded or anything, it's just that a lot of the music sounded extremely similar.

As for overall best, hard to say. I think Gen 4 has some of the best tracks, but also has quite a few unremarkable. Gen 5 is exactly the same for me. I'll give it to Gen 5 though, for having superior battle themes.

I agree- except for one battle theme. Look up "Mirakle B. theme" on YouTube, for anybody who doesn't know.

I'm going to say tie between 4th and 5th gens. Both had some amazing music.
