So on the surface it's Dark and Steel vs Natures, Double Battles, Abilities.


More like this...

Gen 2:
+Steel and Dark Types
+The world physically getting larger (Johto is right beside Kanto, kind of a Loz1&2 thing)
+Day & Night System (yes, this was touted as a major feature at the time)
+New evos and pre-evos of existing Pokemon
+New Pokemon that filled in pretty massive gaps (elephants, bears, owls, oh my!)
+Gyms and Elite 4 for each remaining type
+The Team Rocket story continues, this time with LANCE
+Shinies
+Animated Pokemon (Crystal only)

Gen 3:
+Abilities
+Double Battles
+Natures
+New berries
+A brand new region to explore (disconnected from prior regions)
+Weather (grealy expanded on. I actually had to confirm that Gen II introduced this)
+Two seperate stories between the games (Magma vs. Aqua, even though this turned out to be pretty tame, but it was a selling point at the tiime)
+New PC system
+2 bikes
+More pokemon than gen 2 introduced
+Pokeblocks
+Contest
+Battle Frontier
+VS Seeker
+Running Shoes
+Non-restrictive clock
+Underwater
+Overworld weather
+Secret bases

Again, not bad games, but things were slowing down. Gen 4 was far worse than Gen 3 for this, which is likely why it gets badmouthed so often around these parts.

GENERATION 22: The first time you see this, copy it into your sig on any forum and add 1 to the generation. Social experiment.

When did "casual player" become an insult? -Taizuku
The real question is "When did hardcore gamer become a compliment/aspiration?" -JMBoote

A couple things I hated in Gen III were the lack of visible passage of time, and the overall aesthetic in the GBA games. So far the 3DS aesthetic looks pretty good, and I fully expect them to maintain the day/night passage, so that would be two key issues fixed for me.

I'd give it a shot, I think.

I wasn't really a huge fan of gen III, but I would still get the remakes on release day. IT'S MORE POKEMON FOR ME TO PLAY!!!!!
