Am i the only person who thinks of FR/LG when people say gen 3?

Well, probably not the ONLY one, but I'd say that's it's probably not the popular opinion. I mean, even the "gen 3 sxks" trolls mean RSE.

If that offends you for whatever reason, shoot me a PM and I'll correct your misconception.

I've always lumped remakes with the generation they were introduced in, but a lot of people here don't. FR/LG don't get much hate at all, and that's as much credit as you can get from the Pokemon fanbase.

Maybe it's just because LG was my first game, but no. I do, too. The games were huge improvements to RBY (except for glitches but oh well), and even introduced another freaking region without changing the plot too much (except for post game but ahahaha like RBY even had a postgame). They introduced us to their unique style of the Battle Tower. They sent us on Braille missions that didn't cause half as much suffering as RSE's.


Again, maybe it's just me.

For me I am totally set in the standard gen mentality. I can understand why you'd put FR/LG in gen 3 but because the games are set in the "Gen 1" area I associate them with gen 1.

Same thing with HGSS being Gen 2

Fire Red and Leaf Green are part of Gen 3, but when I think of the Gen 3 games (like in the sense of "Gen 3 Remakes"), I think of RSE because they are the main games of the gen. Just like how DPPt are the main games of Gen 4 and HgSs were the secondary games.
