I cant hate on 3rd gen much since I played it a crap ton as every other gen when I was younger however the visual design of 3rd gen always sort of bugged me. I know this is a stretch but to me, 3rd gen always kinda felt out of place compared to the other games visually. Something about the trees, characters, sprites, seemed different.
Again, I say it's a stretch cause I honestly can't explain how they're different but idk. Either way I still like 3rd gen a lot.

Since no "bad new designs" people, posted, I will. Other than the robots and dragons, most of the Gen III pokemon are downright ugly compared to generation I and II. It almost seems like they were designed by a different artist or something. I remember using Treeko, Taillow, Chinchou, Zigzagoon, and Vulpix on my first playthrough. I couldn't even complete a team of 6. After that, I Game Sharked pokemon I liked that weren't legendary like Sentret, Cyndaquil, and Bulbasaur.
