    I liked all of them pretty much. I've been playing through Emerald but am having a tough time with it, gonna take a break from it for White 2. I've never played Platinum though, thats the only third version I haven't played.

    I think Platinum was a big improvement, most noticeably in how fast the battles go. They're as slow as molasses in D/P, but in Platinum they're more up to speed.

    Oh definitely, the third version is the better game. And yet i still get suckered into playing the first game haha.

    Platinum was a vast improvement over D/P in that regard.

    We all get suckered into playing the first versions, because if we didn't we'd all be waiting around for the 3rd versions and it would be unbearable :P

    Platinum was a perfect example of third versions, and it's my favorite pokémon game. Emerald's problem for me is that it doesn't fix what I think is RS' problems to begin with. Platinum manages this, it takes most of DP's problems and fixes them. Don't know about Crystal, didn't really play it.

    They still suck compared to the first two. The first two are new, new region, new pokémon, new characters, etc. Best a third version can do is new forms and a little of the other two.

    And B2W2 are pretty much third versions.

    No thanks. XD
    I'll probably clear the game soon anyway, I finished Chapter 4.

    I agree, Platinum was really good, it fixed the issues that D/P had, especially with loading speed. It remains my favorite Pokemon game.

    Emerald is not the greatest third version, it has very little difference between it and RS.

    Story wise, not much, but i think there is more to do after the league, given the battle factory, pike, etc

    It can still improve upon the first version though, in different ways than new forms, etc. Platinum was quite a change, and a good one. But obviously, there isn't as much of a reason to be excited for them when they feature the same region and most of the same Pokemon, among other things.

    I've never tried the Battle Fronteir.

    I like the concept of sequels now, I hope GF continues to do that sort of thing instead of third versions.

    Well, I think so, especially with speed of battle as I said, and the Distortion World and all that.

    I think it's probably a good idea as well, it's a bit more refreshing.

    And I agree, Platinum improved an aspects on D/P, and it'd be hard to deny that. I prefer Platinum to D/P anyday.
