All right, for those you wanting a recap, here it is: This is a region-by-region blog series where I discuss various topics from each of the six Pokemon generation of games. I compare, on a scale of 1-to-6 (where a ranking of 6 means the games get 6 points as the BEST out of the six generations and a ranking 1 of means the games get 1 point as the worst in that particular regard), several categories where I’ve matched the generations up against each other. For a quick review:
Generation 1/Kanto got a score of 30 out of 42.
Generation 2/Johto got a score of 22 out of 42.
So moving on, this brings up:
3. Hoenn, Generation 3 – Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald (and, in remakes, Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby)
You know what I’ll always remember about Hoenn? It was the region that first KIND-OF disenchanted me from Pokemon. It just introduced a LOT of new aspects that, while in retrospect are fantastic additions to the game, I was not a huge fan of at the time. I remember getting bored with Ruby fairly quickly and going back to the Johto games… at least until generation three remade the original games as LeafGreen and FireRed, and then I was back on board, baby! So, heh, I was kind of an early genwunner. Darn, that is depressing.
