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

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. --- Badge Case [Time Badge] StrifeHart is my OTP. services performed at BSC: 2 Riley's Boyfriend on the Pokemon BW2 & X boards. W1 FC: 4170 0917 6393
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. --- Pokemon Black 2 FC: 1679-1616-3854
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. --- "I do a lot of push ups and sit-ups and I drink plenty of juice"-Vegeta
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 --- Currently awaiting: Lunar Knights 2, Pikmin 3, XY, WW HD, LR:FFXIII, X, LoZ U, FFXV, KHIII Skarmory would slap the hell outta you
