My favorite would be the pokegear which had the map, music, and allowed for you to call people for rematches, the first to allow it. In Gen IV you are even able to call gym leaders for rematches.

Poketch is my favourite. It was fun to receive so many different and useful features throughout the game, and the Game & Watch style visuals gave it a lot of charm.

Pokegear, but the gen I version. I am a sucker for watches, old, new, big, small, analog, and digital. I think that is why I love digivices too, but that is for another thread ;).

I don't know...

Pokégear had the map, calls, time, and radio features. Calls were useful for rematches, time...for time, and radio features were quite cool. GSC were good with this, and so were HGSS.

Pokénav had contest stuff, map, and Match Call/Trainer's Eyes. Match Call/Trainer's Eyes were the rematch source of RSE, and were quite cool. Zoomed in Hoenn map was cool, too.

But my personal favorite was the Pokétch. It was in the bottom screen, making it easy to see, and there was apps to add, like the Friendship and roaming app. The roaming app was useful when there was a roaming Pokémon, like Mesprit or Zapdos.

So, to me: Pokénav < Pokégear < Pokétch.

The Poketch was definitely the best one for me. It had so many different neat apps, as well as useful ones like the Roaming App and the Happiness App. I disliked the PokeGear, mostly because phone rematches is one of the stupidest things in existence. PokeGear was okay, the contest stats were perfect for a Coordinator like me, but it was blah like the PokeGear because of phone rematches.

All of them were good, but I'd say Poketch because of the roaming pokemon tracking app

The Poketch for making breeding, EV training, and finding run away legendaries easier.

I like the Pokétch because its apps were very helpful, especially the apps related to breeding and Happiness.

Poketch. It was the one of these three I used most, and it was also the one I found most useful.

Pokegear, simply because it's amusing to listen to Marys stupid comments about pokemon on Oak's talk show.

Pokenav, because it's fun to check the Match Call bios.

Pokegear, it didn't take up the bottom screen in Gen 4.

So hard to decide... I wish for a device that could be used as all three XD
I would say pokegear because of the radio and phone calls... But I still want the other two!

I found the Pokégear's combination of radio, map and phone quite useful, but the fact that the Pokétch offers so much more and is permanently on the touch screen makes it win by a large margin.

1)Pokétch
2)Pokégear
3)Pokénav

I really liked the Pokégears radio and phone functions, but it's well beaten by the Pokétch. Just collecting the various apps was great fun, the dowsing machine was fantastic and the friend checker... Well, that was just truly awesome!
I kinda miss it...

Poketch, a good number of apps were very helpful, especially the Day-Care checker and Dowsing Machine.
