Why do people hate gen 3?

Is it because you couldn't transfer your pokemons from previous gens? Is it the excessive water? I liked Emerald and the Battle Frontier, so I don't really know why it gets so much hate.

I've wondered that too, honestly. R/S/E are good games. Sure the postgame in Ruby and Sapphire was underwhelming, but the actual game was pretty fun. I love the two evil teams, even if I wish they gave them a reason for wanting those radical climate changes. The Pokemon are pretty solid too.

I think a lot of it in the absence of a lot of Pokemon from previous gens, even if GF did remedy that within the generation.

I hated the games although some of my favorite pokes are from gen 3 the games are still my least favorite

Water and worst villians/rivals in the entire series (Hugh is pretty bad too but at least he's not completely useless)

I don't mind them. It just gets annoying sometimes, when people put any generation on a pedestal and 3 seems to be the latest choice.

Every reason already said, plus gen three pokemon are generally pretty terribly. I cant actually think of a single one off the top of my head that I like. I'm sure there is probably a couple, but they aren't coming to mind. They are also that forgettable.

I mainly dislike gen 3 for excessive surfing and the dirt easy difficulty. I would bring up the large number of filler pokemon like luvdisc,Kecleon, Delcatty, Armaldo, etc but that would be a little difficult to back up. Seeing how the definition of filler "pokemon" is vague at best.

It gets a lot of hate because it's in the limelight right now
As soon as the spotlight shifts to another gen (IV is probably next) there'll be a lot of vocal hate for that gen instead

Why are there so many topics about why everyone loves/hates Hoenn? Can't we talk about Kalos?
