In answer to your topic, the first, because it started the trend of imbalanced gameplay due to typing.

Gen 1 cause all those pokemon are underpowered compared to some of the rediculous pokemon the fuure gens introduced.

First because there's less variety and it's all about the Normal and Psychic Pokemon.

Worst is first. Competitive was all about Normals and Psychics. Dragonite had the stats to be the king but did not have the movepool since I believe the only dragon move was dragonbreath or something.

Best would probably be third gen. Nearly everything had its uses, even freaking Charizard was slightly more useful that gen than it ever was before (or after).

The one thing that holds me back about saying anything of Fourth or Fifth gen is Stealth Rock and the incredible focus on weather.

Even worse. Dragonbreath was Gen II. The only Dragon attack in Gen I was Dragon Rage.

I like how no one actually answered your question lol. Anyway i think they all have somewhat equal amounts, although off the top of my head i would guess gen 3
