Why do people hate gen 3?

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.


At least you recognize that. My favorite batch overall is the third generation batch.

For the folks who A)aren't like me and love Hoenn or B)didn't grow up with it, there are valid reasons to dislike Hoenn. It's also worth noting it's very easy to get Jan Brady syndrome. With large camps of folks preferring the oldest (gen I) or newest (gen V) games, it's easy to forget the middle.

Go to Gamestop, buy a Steam card, and use it to purchase Ys Origin. You won't be disappointed.

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


Not really, other than "oh, the map looks pretty"

Way more stuff to hate on in Hoenn, at the moment.

Don't worry, in a few years we will get around to that Kalos hate. I promise.

Water, water, and more water


These. While I don't exactly hate it, I would rank it the lowest.

gen 3 is my favorite, the people that don't like it are the "newgenners" that only like everything after D/P

Didn't Gen 3 have the lttle hideouts that you could build? That was one of my favorite things so far in the pokemon series.

Because people continue to make topics like this. I hate seeing these topics, because you don't know if that's the truth or not. They aren't being hated. Why haven't I seen a "Why do people hate Gen 4?" or "Why do people hate Gen 5?" topic. These topics are causing the hate, and this way, we'll never get remakes.

Water, music, ugly Pokemon, and because all of the people who insist it's the best won't shut up

I personally think it was good, but not really the best generation like some people say it is.

Generally people dislike it because...

1. They feel the music used too much trumpet.
2. They feel there was an overabundance of water.
3. They dislike the Pokemon, typically because they are too colourful, "overdesigned", etc.
4. They dislike being unable to transfer Pokemon over.
5. They dislike the lack of night/day.
