Depends how you look on it, really.
Precisely which is why you have people saying they were harder than the 4/5th gen but easier then the 1/2nd gen. (then again is wasn't until the 4th gen came in which you see decent bug/fighting moves which was a pain for heracross).

I think 2nd gen was the hardest, since it extended a long way and if you wanted to switch pokes after the e4, it would take a loooooooong time to grind your way up their.
