Because I'm curious! Also, feel free to discuss:
-Your favorite Pokémon
-Any generations you dislike
-Multiple favorite generations

Personally, I love Moon so much! I've had lots of great memories from Sapphire and its remake, but Gen 7 has so many awesome improvements and fixes problems that have been present in the older versions (+ woodpecker Pokémon, heheh).

Ok, I honestly was just going over this subject while looking over the new Pokémon in Pokemon GO... My favorite generation is by FAR generation 3. It has a ton of my favorite Pokemon, including Milotic, Flygon, Altaria, Kirlia, and a few others. A close second favorite is generation 6 because mega evolutions were awesome smile_laugh.gif

My least favorite generation is probably generation 2 because it is lacking an assortment of Pokemon that have cool evolutions. A lot of them don't even have evolutions at all. But I still love some of the Pokemon, including Hoothoot and Girafarig. And generation 2s starters are my favorite starters; Cyndaquil is ADORABLE!!! I have mixed feelings about generation 7, mainly because there weren't as many and some of them were a little weird to me. And as a bird lover, I thought it was strange that a woodpecker turned into a toucan... Although, I fell in love with Lurantis, Brionne, Jangmo-o, and Oricorio Pom Pom Style! So cute!

So I never knew I could talk this much about Pokemon.... but there are some cute ones out there, and I love cute, fantasy creatures smile_laugh.gif

Great choice ;D I'll admit, a lot of my favorites are from Gen 3 too, but I found the fixing of things like getting rid of HMs, making PCs easier to use, and including a more helpful map in Gen 7 to be what changed my mind. The whole "woodpecker to toucan" thing also kinda bugged me, but oh well smile_laugh.gif

I have been playing the Pokémon games since they came about so I have a special spot in my heart for gen 1 and 2. However, my favourite Pokémon comes not from either of those generations although eevee is up there.

My favourite Pokémon is Virizion. When I first caught it, I immediately fell in love. Now I just wish I had a shiny smile_happy.gif. Other favorites include Zorua, Bayleef, Ninetales, and Rockruff (sun version).

I'll admit, I'm not too familiar with Gen 2 and 4 even though some of my favorites are from them smile_blush.gif

Gen 4. It has the same feel as gen 3, with the addition of some great new pokemon. And most importantly, that's when the physical/special split happened.

Fav Pokemon Gen and Why;

For me its generation 1, with Pikachu and Eevee all those ones. The reason why is because this was the series that was first on TV like back in the 90s, with that awesome theme song.

The generations after this, I didn't so much like well because I liked the original team of Ash, Misty and Brock and when those characters were changed to different ones, I just didn't like it.

Fav Pokemon
Ooooh that's a bit of a toughie but its gotta be Vaporeon, because its an Eeveelution and the color just sits so well.

My close favs after it are; Vulpix and Charizard, cause Vulpix is cute and the other one is a dragon.

Any generations I dislike
I don't know any others apart from the first set XD

Oh but I am aware of the Eeveelutions, I like all those.

Multiple Fav Generations

....The Eeveelutions...?

Literally the only things Pokemon I have done, is I've seen the original 90s show and then I've played Pokemon Go and now recently done Pokemon Moon.

Yeah no joke, the first Pokemon game I did was the one on the phone. Some people are shocked by this but when Pokemon games were released they were on that Gameboy series that we didn't have and back then it was kinda pointless having a system bought only for one game.

Obviously when I was older and could buy whatever I wanted this rule didn't apply as I bought the Nintendo DS just to play Layton and the PSP just so I could play Daxter...


In Pokemon Go though now Gen2 has been released I've started seeing those, having like NEVER seen 90% of them this is quite fun.

The ones I've picked up have been like there was a ladybug, there was some green bird that looks to have lost its wings (I dunno I found it near water), there was a blue mouse that I swear was called Merill but the game said it was Marill (close enough), there's was like this pig cum hedgehog looking one thats mental.

And the latest one I caught was... the only way to describe it is its like a bird crossed with a wizard, made me laugh when I saw it and the great lengths of the imagination they went to in its creation.

Bird + Wizard Hat = Pokemon.

Oh and there's this other blue thing I caught that I call the Weeboo.

A mate of mine (a while ago now) said they were running out of ideas for Pokemon so by the time Generation 8 comes there'll be like a chair based Pokemon.

My favorite is generation 4. It's probably because that was the generation where I was allowed to have video games. When Generation 1 started, I was very young and no one in my family was interested in Pokemon, so I didn't know anything about it yet. I first got interested during Generation 3, but all I could do was watch the TV series and collect merchandise. I even watched VHS tapes from my local library which were of the first season.
I'm actually looking forward to whenever remakes of the Diamond and Pearl games come out. I don't mind how long it may take.
As for what my favorite Pokemon is, it's actually pretty obvious if you look at my username. Yes, it's Jirachi.

For a long time it's been gen 3 for me as I grew up playing emerald, but seeing sun and moon really changed it for me. Now gen 7 is my absolute love.

Always, ALWAYS 3rd Gen (the original Sapphire/Ruby). It was the first Pokemon game that I owned (I used to only borrow my friend's copies of Pokemon Red, so I couldn't get too attached).

Played through the game twice. Was going to play it once more but my cartridge got corrupted and my GBA broke as well. Sigh.

Mine is Gen. 5 mostly because of the story and characters. Gen. 4 and Gen. 3 are pretty close behind, however, mostly since they were my introduction to the series.

Gen 1. Pokemon Red on the Game Boy was my first ever exposure to Pokemon, so it'll always have a special place in my heart. Plus, most of my favorite pokemon and Gen 1, like Raichu and Snorlax.

Gen 5 was the weakest generation with regards to pokemon. The storyline was still good, but there was an unusually high output of bad pokemon design for that generation.

gen 3 is my favourite, mostly because it's the one i grew up playing (wasn't able to get the previous generations until a few years ago)

seviper and gengar are two of my absolute favourites. swampert is a very good one as well.
