Now, every Generation has its haters, but I still don't get Generation III.
For one, the graphics were okay, but there were so many things wrong with it:
I think that the loss of backwards compatibility (and I was not aware of this until I got it) was number one for me. Secondly, was the total non-mentioning of Kanto and Johto. It should have started with 47.
Thirdly, was the complete uselessness of the berries, with the odd Berry glitch and all.
Fourthly, I really despised most of the designs of Pokémon in Generation IV.
The mechanics were all wrong (2-on-2 battles?), and characters looked stupid.
The music was mostly forgettable, too.
Finally, the entire thing was tied in with the e-Reader, which really irritated me, it was like DLC for Pokémon. No thanks.
There's probably a thread for this, but did anyone else think that Generation III wasn't so great?
