Post your favourite Pokemon game of all time here. Give your arguments and explanations, and after every week I will tally up the posts and tell you the positions of your fave Pokemon games.

My favourite is Pokemon Black, because of Reshiram and the cool Pokemon in it.

Pokemon Yellow. It was with the original 150 Pokemon and was the first(and for a long time) only game where you had a Pokemon follow you around. It is also the only game where you can have Pikachu as a starter Pokemon.

The first generation of Pokemon are my favorite, and each generation after that has gone downhill. The 3rd generation got pretty redicilous and the 4th and everything after... I can't even look at the games the pokemon bother me so much.

I dislike how there's a "dark" type pokemon and "dark" attacks, but other than that, the new battling system where physical and special attacks refer to the way in which the attack hits rather than attack type is a definite improvement.

That being said, I believe my favorite handheld Pokemon game is Heart Gold, or Soul Silver (I just happen to own Heart Gold). Even though the Pokemon aren't as cool as those in the first gen games, it uses the newer battling system, which I enjoy much more. Fire Red and Leaf Green would be my second favorites. Those games use the old system where physical and special refers to attack type though, which is the only reason those games aren't number 1.

My favorite Pokemon game of all time would have to be the first Pokemon Stadium. Watching the Pokemon battle each other in 3D was just absolutely mind blowing. The audio for the game is absolutely wonderful! When you hear that announcer, it sounds like you're actually listening to a real event where someone is using a megaphone. No other game seemed to draw you into the game in the same manner. It's rather hard to explain.

First generation had the right idea, and I thought it was great until I played the second. THOSE were complete games. There were no steps back.
The balance and mechanics truly came into their own, there were less bugs, the world was much more interesting, the second generation Pokémon fit nicely with the original ones. The spirit was still there.
Generation 3 was almost as good but not the perfect successor that 2 had been. Still fantastic games though, worthy of the title.
Crystal, being the apex of Generation 2, is probably the best Pokémon game. Or Emerald.

Generation 4 onwards is total crap, I wouldn't remember the Pokémon they brought in even if I cared, someone needs to fire everyone involved in the making of those games. Those new Pokémon look like particularly bad Digimon.

Nintendo ought to reboot Pokémon from Generation 3 imo.

While you hate the 5th Generation and sit around and play your Reds and Blues, I enjoy the 3rd Generation the most. (btw, none of you will get the reference) The 3rd Generation brought so much, from double battles, to abilities, and also some of my favorite Pokemon are from the 3rd Generation.

I do not agree with you, but I think the 4th and 5th generations have very good gameplay, but like you and others said, the Pokemon are not as good as the original 150. The reason I like Black is mainly because of the gameplay, the good graphics and the colours. Red, Blue and Yellow have good storylines but the sprites they use look frankly, retarded.(Sorry for the language, but it has to be said.) The original shapes and colours that made the pokemon popular are not there, but in the later versions all that is there and more,(eg. moving sprites) therefore making the play better. You can still capture the originals, but after you have finished the game.

Except Snivy he's awesome

I totally agree, Snivy is awesome.

I totally agree, but the Pokemons cries were all the same. They all went Rarearearaer, which was kindas wierd when you sent a Caterpie onto the field...

But anyway, thanks for your opinions. Still 5 more days to go until this weeks tally up! Get your friends to vote!

I love Pokemon Emerald the most. All those Pokemon were so cool, there were about a million legendaries you could get without an event, the starters were really cool, the graphics were improved from Leaf Green and Fire Red and the story-line was really cool!
