All generations sold very well but my question to you is what was the best? What brought the most to the table. Here's My Take on each then decide for yourselves (unless you already voted).
Original pretty much sums it up. This game took most of us by storm, it was everywhere, everyone wanted it. As a kid you ask for it from your mom who used to say Why Poke'MAN (thats not a typo). Best looking pokemon in the series IMO.
First sequel another thing that adds this up! A bonus of 100 pokemon to catch introducing shiny garydos (this is a typo), Great music and best OST in the Series IMO, and returning to my old region was a blast with 16gyms.
Who can forget the best battle evaaa.... RED!
Gen 3. Most underrated but non the less fantastic. gave so many more pokemon, great region (my favorite in the series), brought in double battles which is standard in tournament play now a days, battle frontier and pokemon contest. This gen also featured so much water, too much water lol. The best legendaries are in this region too (no one can top mewtwo or mew though)
This gen brought back more fans of the original two. This gen had alot to offer and pretty much enhanced everything better. Good things to note is pokemon in this gen. So many cross evolutions that made forgetable pokemon get a chance. (Yamega, Mamoswine,Gallade). This gen definitely brought good things overall!
This gen known as the reboot has introduced many things. First the bad things are bad pokemon designs. That said it brought triple and rotation battles which is freaking crazy! More strategy completly plays different from reg and double battles. Another weird but good thing this brought was powerful pokemon, very powerful pokemon, the bugs are freaking strong.
So with all this said which is the best?
