    Question Gen III Graphics

    This is my first post on here, so I was just wondering if there were any other like minded people.

    I personally prefer the graphics of generation III games such as Ruby/Sapphire, Emerald, Fire Red and Leaf Green. This is because I feel they are truest to the original games, but with a splash of modern colour. I personally would have loved to see a Gold/Silver remake with these graphics, as they were my favourite games in the pokemon series.

    Dont get me wrong though, the DS graphics are great it's just I personally preferred the GBA ones.

    Does anyone else share my views?

    Yes the music! I also feel that Generation III was the last generation where the new editions were decent... I mean Bibarel? Who wants one of those? Haha :P

    And thanks for the welcome! I recently got re-obsessed with the games, seeing as it was raining yesterday so I tidied my room... And stumbled upon a box with all my GBA stuff in it! r

    Do you own D/P/PT? It ruined the Graphics :(

    But HG/SS made it better again :)

    This is one of the fews things I liked about Generation III. It did it perfectly in this category. I'm not really a fan of the 3D graphics.

    i preferred the way they designed the pokemon in FR/LG tbh. They looked more "drawn" and kinda realistic with the color variety. While in Gen 4 everything looks like its a cartoon :/

    I like both gen 3 and gen 4. Emerald is a great game even now, although my HG gets all the play time anymore.

    Graphics are meh though after seeing the great 3d-ness of HGSS. However, that is just my opinion :D

    Honestly, I don't really care too much about graphics. With the exception of the new 3D structures on the overworld, I didn't really notice a huge change between the graphics between Gens III and IV, with the exception of Gen IV being slightly sharper.

    ^ Best point. I loved the music. <3

    (Gen IV had nice visuals and I'm emotionally attached to Gen II, but I definitely agree.)


    you gotta roll with it, baby.

    when Gen III was new, I loved it.

    When Gen IV came out, I thought it was weird. Until I realized how cool it was. Now Gen III looks bad.

    Gen III had okay graphics I guess. I just don't like the pokemon animations in emerald. They're too quick. Even Crystal had better animations.

    The graphics are simply different. While Generation 4's graphics are more technically advanced, I don't think either generation surpasses the other, as far as overworlds go. It's all up to preference.

    What was annoying, however, was the drop in framerate in Generation 4. Generation 3 kept up a steady 60-fps, while Generation 4 maintains only 30-fps.

    Second line.

    The drops in framerate in Hearthome, Goldenrod, Vermillion, and Saffron were rather annoying as well. Generation 3 did certainly run a lot "smoother" than Generation 4.
