Mine is definitely Gen III, but that's because it was my first Pokemon introduction, so I have a lot of fond memories about Hoenn and its Pokemon. I also really like Gen V, and I'm super excited for Gen VI, so those are runner-ups.

Guys please stay on topic in this thread, which is about Favorite generations, thanks.

My favorite generation is Generation 2, the one I started with, I thought those games were great , had interesting Pokemon and introduced many nice features(breeding, day/night cycle, shinies)

I think ... Gen IV. It introduced lots of things I liked, and over the course of Platinum and Soul Silver I had a blast

Oh man, hmm I think I'm gonna say Gen IV because of all the new things it introduced that improved things, although Gen III is close behind.

My favorite Generation is the third mostly out of nostalgia. It had a great selection of Pokemon, villains with a unique motive, and vastly improved graphics and mechanics. Remakes of the original Pokemon games and Emerald's Battle Frontier only made it better. Generation IV is almost as good in my opinion for similar reasons.
Also, a poll would be nice addition to this thread.

Ok, I guess I'll post my favorite generation. I like G4 because Pearl was my first Pokemon game I ever got. Even though I know about generations now, I still like G4.

Gen IV because of Platinum and HG/SS. Gen V is close second, but it seems like Gen VI might become my new favorite generation.

Generation IV is my favorite, since Platinum is my favorite game, but I also like Gens III and I a lot.

Gen 4 was the first I ever played, so it is very close to my heart, but I'm also a big fan of gen 3. I like the plots and characters of both of these gens more than the previous ones and gen 5. I also still like the graphics and music. However, I feel that I like more Pokémon from gen 3, with a lot being some of my favorites. So I'll say that gen 3 is my favorite and gen 4 is my second favorite.

4. The fact they made the special/physical moves finally make sense is one of the reasons.

Another reason is that in Generation 4 they "closed" the series, because in G3 we had no compatibility with G2 and G1, so it was as if we had no legal access to the prior stories. So they began to fill the gap with FireRed/LeafGreen and finished that with HeartGold/SoulSilver. The completion of the evolutionary family of some pokémon also contributed.

However, the censorship in HG/SS and the old special/physical system being used in G3 still make me feel sometimes that the gap was not completely filled. It just makes me sad.

I feel that, since I started with Gen 3 (I actually started with Gen 2, but I first owned gen 3 games), I'm obliged to say that it's pretty much my favorite of them all. The Battle Frontier was what really stuck out to me in Emerald at the time, and tbh, in my eyes, Emerald really is the best version out there to me. HG/SS is a very, very close second, however.

I just have so many memories with the Gen 3 games. :(

Anyway, my favorite is gen I. Probably because all the nostalgia

I'd say
V>III>II>IV>I

I just loved Gen 5, mainly because it was a fresh start. It was like playing Pokemon for the first time again. All brand new Pokemon with no old Pokemon to be seen until post game, starting from Route 1 again, great soundtrack, animated sprites, and the characters in general. Hilbert and Hilda are also easily my favorite designed protagonists. First time I ever played through both versions. I normally buy both and never touch one.

I see a lot of people like Gen 4 as well. Though I have always been mildly annoyed by all the new evos for previous Pokemon (that I personally found to be mostly ugly), what really puts it near bottom for me is the speed. I know it sounds nitpicky, but trying to surf down a long Route in Diamond felt like torture after I spent so much time playing Ruby. But I did like most of the new Pokemon and it too had a good soundtrack. Also was the start of gym leaders getting more involved in the game and not sitting in their gyms all day becoming useless after you've battled them.
