Most linear and non-linear Pokemon games?

Most linear: Hoenn

Least linear: Tie between Kanto and Johto

Hoenn because Sinnoh and Unova are less linear than it.

Kanto and Johto because they let you battle Gym leaders out of order thus letting visit different Towns.

I'm pretty sure gen 5 is the most linear so far. Least linear goes to gen 2.

Most Linear: Unova
Least Linear: Kanto

I for one like Hoenn the least, but really, that's just bashing Hoenn for no reason now.
If you think Unova is less linear than Hoenn, then you never played a Gen V game.

Sinnoh and Kanto were both rather non-linear.

Unova is definitely the most linear.

TC, you're joking about Hoenn, right?

Anyway, most linear: BW Unova
Least linear: Sinnoh or Hoenn

Agreed.

Don't get me wrong, I love bashing Hoenn, and Gen III in general. But I can't tell you that I think Hoenn is linear without lying. I will probably lie anyway, though.

Unova is like STRAIGHT LINE linear...nothing to really explore till post game, and even then...

I could've used some more Hoenn-Level Sunken Ship or Sinnoh-Level Mt. Whatsits non-linear; or maybe some Johto "Make you backtrack three cities"

Hoenn isnt really that linear. There were a lot of optional areas and things to revisit. Hell, the vastness of the water routes are the REASON people love to hate Hoenn's map, and those were some of the least linear routes in the series.

Unova is absolutely the most linear region. Im not even sure you can even call that an opinion, it seems pretty much objectively true.
