Okay, so I see Gen III getting lots of praise on this board and on the internet in general. Incidentally it's also the only generation I never got to play. Never had a GBA, got a DS but Gen IV was out so I just skipped it.
But I'm getting pretty burned out on Gen V at this point and have time to kill until Gen VI comes out. What makes Gen III so special in so many eyes? What does it bring to the table that the other generations don't have that makes it so fantastic? I know it brings a boatload of legendaries and I like their designs.
Not sure how I feel about the music though. I've heard some of it and I'm not overly fond of the trumpets. I can overlook that if there are other redeeming factors. --- 3DS Friend Code: 0619-3902-4035 Pokemon White Friend Code:0433-9592-2992
The music ranges from decent to good. Gen 3 was big because of the whole Natures/abilities thing. Also expanded on ivs and evs a lot.
Really, you should play at least one Hoenn game, just to say you have. Play Emerald. It's a very good game, and it has the first (and biggest) ever frontier in the Pokemon games. It has a lot of replay value. I currently am planning a team to make for the frontier.
I'm not the biggest fan of Hoenn either, but Emerald is a great game that actually makes me enjoy the region and the Pokemon. --- W2 FC-4041 7958 0763 B1-3955 8779 8112
Gen III really upped the popularity of competitive play.
IMO Gen 3 is fun just because it did some interesting things, like half the game was on water and there was a lot of diving and stuff, the story was interesting for the time (there were CG CUTSCENES in Emerald!! lol)
Stuff like that. The region and regional Pokémon have their own charm.
Why not just play it and see if you like it? Can't hurt. --- "Earth is a silly place. Half the world has no clean water. And the other half has so much, they poo in it." 3DS FC: 2750 1911 5515
Oh yeah, the original contests were a blast! Something you can only get in Gen3. --- "Earth is a silly place. Half the world has no clean water. And the other half has so much, they poo in it." 3DS FC: 2750 1911 5515
