Which gen had the best/worst level design?

For me, I'd actually have to give the level design crown to gen 1. All the caves and forests were wonderfully constructed mazes, and a few of the gym puzzles were interesting as well.

The worst level design is hands down gen 5, though I'm not even sure you could say gen 5 even had level design at all. Everything was just a straight path. The game pretty much never let me figure out anything on my own, and just pulled me along with the story.

I liked Generation II. The whole split after Ecruteak thing, where you can choose to go left or right, really threw me off and I had a good bit of fun just exploring every nook and cranny of the routes east of Ecruteak and north of Mahogany before I realized I was supposed to go west from Ecruteak and then head to Olivine.

My favorite design has to go to the psychic gym in this gen, loved that sphere mechanic.

Gen 5 since it blocked off cities/content in both BW1 and BW2 until you beat the game or completed after-game events. . . Which by then it's like "what the frick's the point?" It was also just a straight line too, which sucked.

In Gen 6 they fixed that up by a tiny bit with somewhat straight forward caves that had extra areas to them. Also having Terminus be a "side thing" was pretty nice. Though the straight forward path kind of zigzagged twice instead of doing a full circle, so I liked that at least.

Best - Gen 3. Had awesome secret areas and fun places to explore like the volcano and dive areas. People just hated it because of the vast amounts of water, but I loved it. There was even a city hidden through an underwater cave!
