    Default What keeps you playing the 3rd Generation?

    Title says it all. Why do you still play these games after D/P have come out internationally?

    As for me, I play to get Pokemon I can't get in DP, breed for Pokemon with good IV's if they need tutor moves in their moveset, and to be able to have a fresh start and a new adventure when I restart them, since I can't really restart my DP x;

    be sure to read the rules of every section before posting ;)

What makes her the way she is happens to be the fact that the webmaster of this site let's her behave like this. (Of course, I would never make a liberal a staff member at any forum I'd be in charge of, regardless.)

    even though i have both diamond and pearl i still play the 3rd gen for several reasons:
    1)Battle Frontier(not going to stop till ive gotten all the gold symbols)
    2)Cloning in emerald
    3)Able to catch a feebas in Sapphire since i found 1 of the 6 tiles.
    4)Im not used to the D/P physical/special split
    5)Obtain 3rd gen legendaries for the 4th gen
    6)Good pokeblocks are easier to make than poffins, especially with emerald's blend master. This is essential for feebas' evolution

    thats what i can think of at the moment. 4th gen is good too with its slightly longer storyline(or was i just slow in completing the game?) and more variety of pokemon.

    Personally I like Hoenn better then Sinnoh and I miss the Battle Frontier. I will be playing Emerald / XD / FireRed until Platinum comes out.

    Critical thinking is the key to success.

    i like to SR for the shiny starters and legendaries and it is also a good game to raise pokemon, aswell as helping you to complete the pokedex in D/P

    the contests to me are alot easier aswell

    Mostly hunting shinies that you can't get in Diamond/Pearl(three birds/regis/etc). I also breed for shinies and for Pokemon with good IV's as well, so I can trade them to DP. I'm also trying to get all the Frontier symbols, but haven't touched it in a while.

    I just play them because D/P aren't the only Pokémon games.

    Just like Mario/Zelda/FF/etc., people still play the old Mario/Zelda/FF/etc. games even if newer games are out.

    Eh, not having D/P.

    And confusing my brother in link battles when I use Pokemon moves that they don't learn through level up (NINETALES used HYPNOSIS!).

    A need for the legendary dogs (just Raikou, now),
    and
    the Battle Frontier.

    Those are the only things that keep me interested in Leaf Gree and Emerald, respectively.
    I'm working on finishing my DP Pokedex...I have 490. : D!

    I'm waiting for Platinum to come out because I'm indecisive over whether to get Diamond or Pearl. For now, I'm using Emerald, Leaf Green, Colosseum, and XD to get all 386 Pokemon in the third gen. Then I'll work on fourth gen. Hopefully more games will be released so that I can get any fourth gen Pokemon missing from Platinum. (Without having to buy D/P.)

    Honestly, I don't even play it much anymore. Now all I do is maybe turn it on for a bit and reset for like five minutes for a shiny legend every so often.

    I don't really even like D/P. Besides, I have a complete national dex in Ruby for the ultimate breeding resource.

    Excactly, DP is not as good as RSE, because there is batlefrontier, nicer graphics, I have always hated DP graphics and there are better contests and it's useful to breed pokemon there to make them easier to train in DP.

    Unhappy

    Why i play 3rd generation pokemon? I can't afford another Ds. My brother has one, but it's broken. And there's so many people in my family i'm not sure we have spare money for diamond or pearl, let alone a Ds.



    My pokemon ;





    And A Floatzel.
