Still doesn't stop the fact that magma/aqua are extremely stupid. And it also started a horrible trope in the pokemon games, controlling some overhyped legendaries for some nefarious plan which benefits nobody.

Magma and Aqua benefit the Pokemon of water and land
Galactic wasn't about benefiting anyone, it was about Cyrus creating his own world
N wanted to free Pokemon, which would benefit Pokemon
Ghetsis wanted revenge, which benefits himself
You're genwunning pretty hard right now


Magma/Aqua would have just destroyed the environment, which hurts everybody including themselves
Galactic would have destroyed the world, hurting everybody including themselves.
As I said before gen 5 kinda breaks out of this trope, as Ghetsis wanted to control everybody for power for himself.

Team Rocket had no real goals other than steal pokemon, make money.


Right, and it's not interesting at all.

Team Magma and Aqua had stupid plans, yes, and were some of the worst "teams" in the series -- I don't think many people will argue against that -- but at least they had plans. Team Rocket were just glorified road blocks. They got in your way simply for the sake of getting in your way. It's boring.


I wholeheartedly agree with this post. Team Rocket got in your way with no real purpose and mostly by accident. Aqua and Magma were stupid but they had a reason to battle you.

It's no more stupid than the stories of any of the other games. Nothing in the games make sense anyway.

No, it was to expand the land/sea, which would benefit the pokemon of that environment

Galactic would have destroyed the world, hurting everybody including themselves.

That's what Cyrus wanted...

Gen III's not getting a remake? Because they're now realizing that a couple people on the internet really hate gen III? Story's only gotten better from gen I

1 no story
2 no story
3 bad story
4 cliche story
5 interesting but still kind of cliche

Edit gen IV's story was worse, they were literally trying to kill themselves and the universe for no aparent reason.

No story is better than a bad story. Gen 3's story was so bad it hurt 10 year old me's head. At least with no story you don't have to worry about that.

The whole point of this thread is that gen 3's story is bad anyway.

But Gen 1 did have a story, and it was bad

So the whole topic is just an excuse for you to vent your hate for Gen 3.

And the idea that no story is better than bad story is subjective.

I don't really hate gen 3 that much aside from its story, which in of itself I am more astounded by its stupidity than actively hate.

And gen 1/2's lack of a story meant that the pacing and gameplay weren't compromised. Gen 3 you have to think "Oh god why is this story so stupid" between gameplay segments.

Gen 1
Why do I have to stop Team Rocket?
Why are they even doing this?
What's their goal?
Oh, so that's it? They just walk away?

Gen 2
Why do they want Giovanni back? he got nothing done
Are they still crying over Giovanni?
Will they ever stop crying over Giovanni
They finally stopped crying over Giovanni
Now the second half of the game has no story
