The 1st generation is too important to me to not be consicered as a favourite generation. Not only for nostalgy shit, being the first generation of Pokémon it made my life what it is now: a Pokémon hobbyist. Also, the Pokémon are awesome.
Second comes the latest generation. I just love the Pokémon and the games and how this generation has freshened the franchise a little bit by having huge changes and differences compared to the earlier games. Oh, and N.
The Johto region is by far my favorite region cause it has some of the best looking Pokemon (Ampharos and Umbreon being my favorites) and introduced breeding, day and night, and Dark and Steel types. I love being able to explore Kanto again and get the 16 badges. There is also tons of extra features which is why my Gold is my most played Pokemon game next to my White version.
Gen 3 mainly because the graphics improved a ton compared to G/S/E , they introduced really good Pokemon and with FireRed/LeafGreen , a large variety of obtainable Pokemon. Plus FR/LG brings me a lot of nostalgia since Red was my first game. Gen 3 also introduced some of the best features like Running Shoes which are very useful, contests which are really fun, and the expansion of berries which make battling easier and also more challenging.
Gen V is too new for me to call it my favorite, but I really like how much effort they actually put into improving the series and the storyline/features are just amazing. There are some Pokemon I'm not a big fan of, but I'm starting to get use to all of them, just like I did in Gen IV.
To me it's between 2/5. I liked Heartgold but I thought the Sinnoh games were boring. Both Gens sort of provided me with something new. Jhoto was a better Kanto and I really enjoyed gen 5 with the new unexpected pokemon and the story. What Jhoto lacked with an engaging story like BW, it made up for with it's gameplay which was as fun as BW imo.
If I had to order the gens from fav to least fav it would be
I liked Generation II because you could go to both Kanto and Johto in the same game, fight all the gym leaders, and the previous protagonist, Red. It was hell trying to get your Pokédex filled, though.
This is a toughie.
I LOVED gen III. It had the best map for both FRLG and RSE. It dosen't hurt that FR was my first game either.
I only liked gen IV for HGSS. But HGSS is my favorite game so far...
Gen V Is awesome in several ways.
Have to go for III and V. Gen 3 was my first one, and I loved the pokemon variety. Also, I LIEK MUDKIPZ! Seriously, best starter pokemon IMO. As for V, sheer brilliance from GF. Good levelling and a set of pokemon that make you want to go through with several. On my first HGSS playthrough, I really only used feraligatr
Gen III for me. I love that generation for many things :
- Introduction of actual double battles
- Diving in the ocean
- 2 villain Teams instead of 1
- FREAKIN' AGGRON
Gen V and Gen I are close seconds to me. Gen II is okay to me, though unlike most people I didn't liked the remakes as much as the original and Gen IV is okay as well but it's... Nah I'll let Sonic answer that for me
Gen III is my favorite. It had a good story, great region, and pretty good pokemon. It was hard to decide between it, Gen IV, and Gen V. Gen V's graphics were the best, and unlike most of the fanbase, I loved the pokemon. But Gen II was where it all started for me, and it introduced F*CKING FLYGON. (My favorite dragon) I really enjoyed Platinum, it had a good post game, and I actually completed a lot of my pokedex.
