    Default Favorite Gen 3 Pokemon

    Generation 3 introduced several great Pokemon to the franchise: Which were your favorites? Please try and explain your thoughts thoroughly, not just "I like ____".

    My personal favorites were Wailmer, Wailord and Kyogre since I love whales, Latios and Latias since they were jet and dragon hybrids, Kecleon because it was the first Gen 3 Pokemon that I saw, Blaziken because it was my first Sapphire version Lv. 100 Pokemon, and Jirachi simply because it's so cute.

    The Regis because they sound cool like dubsteb and deoxys the movie was one of the best.

    From the Pokemon introduced in third generation, there are many that I like. I can't pick a single favorite. Instead, I'll list the 8 I like the most.

    Slaking. Awesome design and great stats... but plauged with a terrible ability. Doesn't matter though, because it is still awesome. It helped me a lot in the Battle Frontier, destroying nearly all opposition, it was also on my team when I got at least 2 of my Gold Symbols.

    Mawile. Another great design. Used it while playing through Sapphire and loved it. Then I didn't use it again until recently in Y where I learned to appericiate it even more, its new Fairy-typing and Mega Evolution being the main reasons for that.

    Manectric. One of my favorite Electric-types. I have used it many times and it has always been awesome. Its movepool might have been lacking a little in the generation it was introduced in, but it gradually got better even if might not be the best. But that doesn't matter, I like it anyway. And in 6th generation, it got an awesome Mega Evolution as well.

    Skitty. I like cats. Especially if they are cute. And Skitty is one of the cutest Pokemon ever, it has been an instant favorite of mine ever since I first saw it. I haven't really used it that much, though.

    Claydol. Has a cool design, unique type combination, and is overall just awesome. Didn't start liking it until around 5th generation though, not sure why but it doesn't matter.

    Cradily. I have a weird relation to this as I kind of love it and not at the same time. I have had some painful battles against it in various battle facilities in different generations, but have only had moderate success with it myself. Yet it has a great design and unique typing and I have started to like it more lately, so it is now one of my favorites.

    Walrein. Another one I like. I kind of have a similar relation to this as to Cradily because it has been terrifying to face in battle facilitites, but I don't really feel the same way about Walrein for some reason. Have used it on some teams and it was fun, plus I like its design and walruses in general.

    Latias. My favorite legendary from this generation, and one of my all-time favorites. Used to be my absolute favorite from all generations, but I can't bring myself to pick just have one favorite Pokemon anymore so now it's just one of many. I love it because I find it super-cute, it has a great design and has been useful in battle too. Have used it many times with great success for most of them.
    This is the future we made for ourselves
    But is it really the dream we wanted to live in?

    The present has to be treated as precious
    Or we will regret it when it has become the past...

    My favorite is Salamence Favorite dragon and I'm really glad it got a Mega. I've always had one on my team, for whichever reason.

    I remember when I got Ruby, I didn't have unlimited internet access so getting a Salamence like Drake was kind of a dream that time xD

    Blaziken: Torchic was my very starter, and Blaziken just has a cool air about it.

    Milotic: A majestic water type. I used to not really like Milotic, but it's grown on me.

    Altaria: A big fluffy dragon. Altaria has always been my fave dragon type despite its not-so good stats for being a dragon.

    Skitty: I've liked it since i first saw it. It's seriously too cute for me. although i don't like its evolution.

    Absol: My fave dark type! Mysterious yet cool looking~

    Since it is my favorite generation,I like a lot of Hoenn Pokemon.
    Salamence-I like its design actually being menacing.It is my favorite pseudo-legendary Pokemon with a vast movepool.Its Mega-Evolution is disappointing at best,though.
    Manectric-I like its design and the ability to learn Fire-type moves,but Mega-Manectric is downright ugly.
    Absol-it looks awesome and has a decent movepool.
    Milotic-it looks pretty and is tough to take down thanks to Recover.
    Swampert-my favorite Hoenn starter Pokemon,it is bulky and has a good type combination.
    Zangoose-it has a cool design and wide movepool.
    Latias-it looks adorable and is very versatile,although I didn't like Mega Latias literally becoming a jet plane.
    Latios-fast and powerful,I also like the colour blue more than red.
    Groudon-a giant dinosaur,it is the first legendary that is relevant to the storyline in the core series.
    Kyogre-has an awesome design and ability.I also like its cry and it is my favorite Legendary Pokemon.

    My #1 favourite Generation 3 Pokemon is definitely Milotic. I fell in love with it the first time I ever saw it in the games because I liked its beautiful design and I figured it must be a very strong Pokemon since it was hard for me to defeat. I was so happy when I finally got one of my own on Ruby after struggling with finding a Feebas and evolving it.

    I'm also a big fan of Gardevoir and Altaria because I like their designs too and they were great parts of my first Hoenn team.

    I LOVE Altaria, but my fav gen 3 pokemon is Flygon. I love the design, especially on its tail and when it's shiny. There is just something about that blue and light green color scheme that I find eye captivating. I really dig it hah. Flygon also helped me immensely both in-game and competitively back when I used it on shoddy battle. Fun times. Who would have thought that little sand-trap (trapinch) would turn into such an amazing dragon .
