    The best generation, period. It contains one of the best storylines (XD/Colosseum), cool Pokémon, the first time an adventure Pokémon game is on 3D, and so forth.

    Oh, and also nostalgia.

    Mainly the XD exclusive moves (trying to get Timid Zapdos w/ Baton Pass) and gaining the ability to transfer those pokemon to 4th Gen and then 5th Gen.

    Even though my Internal Battery died in R/S, I still play Emerald every now and then. I love Hoenn Pokemon especially Mudkip, Swampert, and Kyogre. I like the Aqua/Magma storylines as well.

    Playing Emerald 'cause Chuggaconroy inspired me to. :P Love watching his playthroughs. ^^ Actually, I just recently restarted on 3 of my 3rd Gen titles: Emerald, FireRed and Colosseum. That's my preteen childhood, right there. ♥

    I dunno what keeps me playing, really. I guess it's just that sense of nostalgia. 3rd Gen really sparked off my life-long love for Pokemon beyond its "fad-years" over here. The graphical overhaul is one of the main reasons I loved it - I was so used to GSC and their graphics.
    It was also the stage in my life where I started spriting. Good times, good times...


    Now, it's just fun to play the games in class, have people ask why the hell I'm still playing Pokemon when I'm in college, and be able to reply:

    "They're video games. We're doing a video game course - it's research. History, even."

    Grammar is important. Good grammar is the difference between, "I'm helping my Uncle Jack off a horse." and "I'm helping my Uncle jack off a horse."
    So please, learn how to use it correctly.

    Sincerely,
    Everyone

    Because RSE were my favourite Games, Hoenn was my favourite Region and IMO the best Games out there.
    DPPT, HGSS, BW are all good games.
    But Hoenn will always be my favourite, though Isshu comes close :]
    And Hoenns BF has so much replay value - besides they're many Pokes you can catch and transfer that are not obtainable in future games!
    *Hoenn is where the start is*

    Well, I can't really explore Hoenn or challenge its Battle Frontier in other games.

    If by Gen III, you mean RSE, I still play Emerald because it is one of the best Pokémon games.

    I don't care about FR LG, the remakes were pretty bad in comparison with the originals.

    It was my first Pokemon game and too many people play 4th or 5th gen. It's just way to stay unique.

    Hoenn is my second favourite region and I also like the majority of Gen III mons, so it's good when I have a lot of pokemon I like to choose from (also hard aswell, I guess). I just find them more enjoyable than some of the other generations.

    They have some of my favorite Pokemon (though my 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th favorite Pokemon are from gen4-5) and even beyond those I still like a lot of the Pokemon in the main stories.
    Oh, and also there's no Toxic Orb Gliscors.

    My biggest reason is probably because with the introduction of the Hoenn region pokemon started to look more and more wierd/less natural/dumb. On the whole I didn't like Hoenn region pokemon compared to Kanto/Johto, but they were much better than Sinnoh pokemon (and Unova since its come out). I completely lost interest when Sinnoh came along, I recently started a re-run of FR but before that I hadn't played for years.

    I agree, I also lost interest when Sinnoh came around. Before the fourth generation, I had every single Pokemon game. I think LeafGreen would be worth another play just to add some more legends to my HeartGold game to use for trades.

    Because Hoenn is easily my favorite region, and the Pokemon there are in most cases amazing.

    I feel like the third gen is much faster paced. 4th and 5th are more story based and have much more "hand holding", if you will. There's nothing wrong with plot focused, but sometimes I want to play a more traditional Pokemon game.
