It's 5, topic over.
That's weird, I don't remember 4 being spelled with a 5.

2.

Why?
- The new types; everyone knows dark is the best type.
- You could get both legendaries on one cart without trading.
- An entire second region to go through, so it’s two games in one!
- Get this, a natural difficulty curve. Must be crazy to imagine, I know.
- Every town in-game had a dungeon or something you could go through: more content.
- The region has a cool aesthetic with a Sengoku-influenced theme, it culminates in Ecrutek.
- To finish it off, the plot is centred around the the Mons themselves instead of some lame evil team.

In fact, the Mons in general were awesome. You had all the highlights from G1 - plus Scizor, Tyranitar, Umbreon and Espeon: you name it. The remakes even had the cool G3 and 4 Pokemon available, which means you could get all the best Mons in the best region - good going!

Oh, and the music is the best in any Pokemon game, period. Even the game corner theme rocks.

Speaking of music, let’s not forget the rival theme - as well as the rival himself, who was a total git and all the better for it.
You actually had motivation to fight the guy, in other words, the character was memorable.

In a word, that sums up this region in the end. Memorable.
It was the only case of a Pokémon sequel making such a huge jump in scope from the previous game; it offered the most character and personality to boot.

There have been more refined Pokémon games since, but at the end of the day, they’ve all been copying off Johto's tests at school to get by.

I can only speak for myself, it didn’t happen to me.

More importantly, thanks for reading my post. :nomad:

Oddly enough, I never had problems with Kingdra. I just always had something that could hit it hard enough with neutral moves (Miltank, Kadabra, Gyarados, ect.) on my team by the point I got to it.

I usually end up fighting Whitney using mostly tactical maneuvers or caving in and just trading the guy in the Department Store for a Machop.

Red's team however, is the most unnatural jump there is in the entire series that I can think of.

Sure he's the same guy who became the champion, and has had 3 years to train, but GEEZ- the last gym leader is Blue and his stuff is at about level 58, then you go to Red and he has level 73+? And then HGSS makes the lowest he has 80?

And Mt. Silver neither has any trainers nor Pokemon over level 51.
What the heck do they expect from you?

(Side note, Lance has also had 3 years to train, and spent it all on getting new Gameshark codes to obtain 3 underleveled Dragonite and a Rock Slide Aerodactyl)

Gonna have to agree with Johto's difficulty feeling lopsided. With so many Gyms, there really could have been a much smoother curve- but there wasn't.

Whichever one you played the most during your childhood.

For me that's 3.

I think design-wise I like gen 2 or 3 the most. As for game, I think it would be gen 4 or 6. Gen 1 is just done to death especially now with "let's go" coming out and gen 5 felt like a generation that was made for competitive players and kind of messed it up. Gen 7 gave these short games that were fun but not the best as well as Z-crystals I was never a fan of. I used to think gen 3 was great to play through but ORAS kind of ruined it for me for some reason?

Tough pick, but I'd have to go with either 2 or 3 (despite the fact that my copy of Gold would never save and I had to keep redoing everything from scratch every single time I wanted to play the game) because those were the ones I played the most (at least until I got my first DS, then most of my time was poured into 5).
