Kami-chan's rating:



I loved the Pokémon Games when I was young and still consider it very much fun to play'em. Here I listed all the different generations of games because there has been a great amount of change. In my opinion the games until the 3rd generation Pokemon were the best. After that it got a bit boring and the Pokemon became uglier and uglier. (Diamant/Pearl/Platinum) The fifth generation doesn't neccessarily look better but with it came some fresh ideas.
Well, decide for yourself and enjoy the little nostalgia trip. ♥

Generation II is hands down the best.
Great list, very interesting :)
Posted: 3 years, 2 months ago at Feb 9 16:26
Great list! I stopped playing the games after Gold and Silver, as I felt the formula wasn't changing enough and I got more into platformers and less into RPGs.

I think you mixed up the notes for LeafGreen and FireRed.
Posted: 3 years, 2 months ago at Feb 9 16:47
Pokemon Green was the very first, I don't think it had a release in America.
Posted: 3 years, 2 months ago at Feb 9 17:12
Ah, nothing can beat good old Pokémon Red.
Posted: 3 years, 2 months ago at Feb 9 20:48
Wow! I haven't been up to date on the Pokemon games. This is kinda cool to look at.

Generation II is hands down the best. [2]
The generation I played the most, and stopped playing after that (mostly because I didn't have the money to afford a DS) is the III, but I'll never forget how hard it was to finish Gold without knowing how to read in English haha

Pokemon Green was the very first, I don't think it had a release in America.

I was going to mention that, and went to Amazon to find out if I could transfer Pokemon Green over to Listal. Turns out, somebody already has, and then somebody must have merged it with LeafGreen by mistake. The best idea for anyone that really wants to fix this is to just create a custom page for the original Green so that Kami-chan can add it here.

@ Pumpkinate I'll go do that and revise the list a bit :D Tomorrow that is. Thanks for the recommendations :3
Posted: 3 years ago at Mar 21 9:13
Great list, I love how you displayed how the games have evolved over the years both in terms of graphics and characters. I've been in the Pokemon fever all over again when Black and White came out, this generation has to be my favorite by far, just so much new and different from previous generations, aside from the general story.
Posted: 3 years ago at Mar 21 17:33
Great list!
Posted: 2 years, 10 months ago at May 25 11:03
Alot of fun playing some of these games, but very repeatitive, but I agree that I like the original Pokemons the best
Posted: 2 years, 7 months ago at Aug 26 16:03
Awsome list! Personly, I like playing Black/White version the best because of the better quality and plot, but I have to agree that I like the sesons that came... lets say, before Sinnoh, the best. Though, I worship Pokémon then and now, because it's just... just genius! xD
OH! and by the way, why didn't you mention N in pokémon Black/White?
Posted: 2 years, 7 months ago at Aug 26 16:06
@ good point actually. Probably because when i made this list the game wasn't out yet. But I'm totally in love with N. Needa revise this list soon, then he'll be on here somewhere for sho ;D

Posted: 2 years ago at Apr 3 15:21

Posted: 1 year, 7 months ago at Aug 31 23:24
Gen. II was the best, until Gen. V came out, and now they're tied.
Posted: 1 year, 2 months ago at Jan 29 13:01

I remember giving my rival some hilarious names too ;P
