Why was Game Freak so obsessed with trumpets during gen 3?

Because the trumpets were unique and cool.

The problem with gen 3 music is that EVERYTHING uses those trumpets. It makes the soundtrack very samey and kinda bland. There are some good invidual tracks but overall it just meshes up together too much.

I really liked and still like the Hoenn sounds, probably exactly BECAUSE of the trumpets.

I think Gen III needed MOAR trumpets. :V

Lol, I always get a kick out of the Gen 3 jokes in the Nuzlocke comic:

"Yeah, you would pick water, Hoenn-boy"

I liked the trumpets... besides, they're not used much in the series.

All Pokemon soundtracks are samey though. In fact all of them sound the same as far as I'm concerned, they're all just cheery tunes with catchy parts.

While gen 3 seemed to use trumpets in everything, it did have some good themes

Where gen 3 was lacking in musically was the gen 1 remixes...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JhfJO366AM4 Eww
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fbHBSDQ_UZ0 Gross
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amxA5936n4E Meh

I mean, I think there were a few remixes that weren't bad (the gym leader one was only meh, for example ), but they're no where near as good as the remixes in the other gens.

The 5th gen actually has fairly unique sound tracks, for the most part.
