    It's interesting to me to see everyone complaining about the water routes. Out of all my complaints about third gen, the I really didn't mind the water routes at all. There are so many worse things about RS.
    That's nice.

    I don't really know maybe the starters didn't appeal to them or something or Ruby and Sapphire were too short or you had to read braille (blind people language) but personally I like it the battle themes were excellent especially the champion

    Gen III for me, introduced some of the important things that many like and find important:

    If it was not for Gen III we would not have double battles - thank you pluse and minun!

    Gave us the Battle Frontier

    Natures - important for breeding for battling

    103 new moves

    Sablyeye - the first pokemon with no weakness

    Tropious - the first grass/flying type

    Blaizken - first fire/fighting type

    Slaking - third highest base attack and if its ability is skill swapped, it can be quite impressive pokemon for a normal type

    Absol - Highest attack of any non legendary

    Wynaut - haveing a wobuffett evolved from this could give you more moves - charm and encore with Splash being a useless one. Plus its considered uber.

    I know people complained about the lack of fire types, but what do you expect from a water route area?

    Thanks Felly for banner

    ^That was close to me. Interesting

    Technically, this isn't true. Hoppip, Skiploom and Jumpluff are also Grass/Flying...

    But they really aren't that useful when compared with Tropius. Probably one of the best HM slaves.

    These two statements are contradictory.
    That's nice.

    Not everyone playing Pokémon is dedicated enough to do that. Or over the age of 10 for that matter. "Lazy" or not, there will be people who notice the similarities who do not research their Pokémon's entire potential movesets and base statistics. Many of those will feel cheated by "repeat" Pokémon. Whether or not they're not looking deep enough is irrelevant; their game experience is slightly less fun, and fun is what it's all about in the first place.

    And as someone who likes Pokémon for more than just battle strategy, I feel somewhat cheated as well. It's not a huge deal to me, but regardless, I don't like it. Rather than having two Pokémon/evolution lines based on the exact same things but with somewhat different stats and moves, why couldn't they just make completely unique Pokémon?

    Its interesting that every topic on a pokemon forum that says "why do people hate yadda yadda" end up with a million comments saying "idk I like w/e subject".

    I doubt its that easy these days. Gen 4 prolly has the least unique pokemon out there, and usually, the most UNIQUE ones suck (IE chatot or Castform). So they can't do much BUT copy/paste with new designs but the same moves. Ofcourse..vespiquen is awesome.

    Yes, because there's also only one butterfly and moth species in the world.

    Regardless of any interpretation, Pokémon still tries to emulate the real world in one way or another. You don't see only one species of bird, a certain insect, and what-have-you, in the planet. There are several, and yes, they do differ, as does the design of Butterfree and Beautifly. Also they don't play the same way, at all. They might be extremely similar, but Butterfree has Compound Eyes. Beautifly has Swarm. Butterfree also learns Poison Powder and Sleep Powder. Beautifly only learns Stun Spore. As such, Butterfree is better geared for disruption, while Beautifly is more offensive. Even outside of competitive play, this does make a difference. They can't be used and raised in the exact same way.

    And well, you can't compare Snorlax with Slaking. Both are lazy, but they still play entirely differently, even in-game. Snorlax has no drawback. Slaking does. Snorlax is caught as-is from the get-go and is a semi-unique Pokémon. Slaking evolves from a rare Pokémon found in a forest. Plus, unlike Butterfree and Beautifly, they're both based off different animals.

    Likewise, Abra and Ralts are different. For one, they're majorly different in appearance. That already plays a huge part and destroys any argument that they're based off the same concept. And like the rest, they play differently and are trained differently. If anyone is unable to see how they're different, it's the person's fault, not the Pokémon's. In the end, the fact stands. They're not the same in any way, shape or form. The fact that both can be caught in the game makes this one the most pointless of all comparisons.

    Saying the fossils are ripoffs are ridiculous.

    So apparently they're not allowed to make new Pokemon that you get from fossils? Armaldo/Cradily are NOTHING like Omastar/Kabutops, which goes to show you how ridiculous comparing these Pokemon really is.

    Which doesn't make sense. Why are they not allowed to make new fossil Pokemon?

    Good question. I like Armaldo.

    However, if they make it so you can only get one fossil based on your ID, they should never be allowed to make new fossils ever again bastards I swear...

    I think he's trying to say that they're Hoenn's fossils. Like, every region has its own fossils, Rattata, Pidgey, etc... I think that's what he meant, Scotty. :)

    My only complaint with the 3rd gen was how you had no post-elite 4 events. Fixed in Emerald with battle frontier and a lot of other things, but that's the only problem I had with R/S; nothing to do, not including the battle tower.

    You sir, have just been sweeped.

    Well I don't know about everybody else but for me it wasn't as much about ripping them off as it was replacing them. For instance, in gen 2 they had a new bird pokemon, hoothoot. But you could still get pidgey. If I could of got butterfree in gen 3 then beautifly wouldn't of bothered me, it would of seemed like an addition, one I wouldn't like but at the same time I wouldn't be bothered by it.

    I don't understand why some of these guys are being called rip offs though (ralts and the fossile pokemon in paticular) as they have different themes (ralts always came off as an alien theme to me while abra has a fox theme.) And yes, you can compare Snorlax with Slaking, they both have a similar theme and if your a fan of one but not the other it's annoying when the one your a fan of is excluded in favor of the other.

    In a game where collecting plays a big part you need to be able to enjoy what your collecting, Not be reminded of what you'd rather collect. Some of us didn't like the style gen 3 pokemon had. I would of enjoyed r/s/e a lot more had they for example made caterpie available in one and weedle available in the other, made HootHoot available in one and pidgey available in the other. Snorlax should be in every pokemon game(zubat already is :P) little bit's of variety splashed throughout as a way of including the previous generations pokemon without excluding the new generation they were introducing would of made a lot of fans happier.


    Like I said in my earlier post, there is nothing wrong with people liking r/s/e and it's style. At the same time there is nothing wrong with people such as myself not liking them. Hell Fr/Lg we're practically made specifically for people like us.
