Gen 2 for the most amount of content. I mean, 16 gyms? Oh, and your Pokemon follows you around. Really nice.

Gen 5 for the best story. Nuff said.

Gen 7 for the best battle system (Yes, I'm praising gen 7 for something. Mainly the Battle Royale. I had so many endless hours of fun doing that online. It was great. It really is a shame they didn't implement it in Gen 8.)

Gen 8 for the best gameplay. The Wild Area was a great idea. Gives me more to do than just going through each gym and then being done with the game, wondering if I should try to complete the Pokedex.

It's among 3, 4 and 5, for me (with 2 being an excellent sequel with a few flaws and issues that become more so after the franchise has set into a different formula); I'll say 4.

3 or 5 imo. I went with 5 because it had more

Gen 4, followed closely by Gen 5.
The best way to know you've made a difference is when you've gotten someone angry enough for them to start stalking you.

Happy to see 5 is winning.

5>2>4>7=8>3>1>6

I felt 8 could have been a lot higher if they tweeked some things.

Those aren't the same generation

He's right heart Gold and soul silver are gen 4 games.

Wait is this why people are voting for gen 5? That's the only thing that makes sense.
