So, it’s June and here we are again with another Pokemon Top 10 list! This time we’ll be covering my top 10 generation III Pokemon! While it was universally panned, upon it’s first release, the Advanced Generation of Pokemon games ushered in a shift in the Pokemon series. Not only where Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald not compatible with the first two generations, but it was the first time you could not catch ’em all, which pissed a lot of people off back then. But, for me the Hoenn region is a fond childhood memory, a tropical paradise that introduced us to 135 brand new Pokemon. Each design of the Hoenn Pokemon spoke volumes about the island and it’s rich natural resources. But, for this list I had to pick just 10, and believe me it was no easy feat!
So Johto is where I started my Pokemon Journey, so this is the generation nearest and dearest to my heart. This is where my love of Pokemon began, and this was probably the hardest list to write for me. So, since today is the day of my graduation, I thought it only fitting to put out this list today! Kind of a Throwback Thursday post!
Generation two introduced us a brand new region to discover and 100 new Pokemon love. It was originally planned as the ending of the Pokemon series…Anyone who has battled Red on top of Mt. Silver, knows just how epic that ending would have been… Each of these amazing Pokemon has a special place in heart!
Hey Pokemon Trainers! I don’t know what is going on with Nintendo and the Pokemon Company this month, but I hope they keep it up! I’m back again to tell you about another, Legendary distribution! This time, they are giving us the Legendary Bird Trio from Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow. But, if I know you guys, you’re probably saying, “I already have those guys, I don’t need them again.” Well to that I say, Hidden Abilities! That’s right this time around, each of the Legendary Birds come with their Hidden Abilities!
I absolutely love Pokemon, it has been the mainstay in my life and one of the few things to stand the test of time. Pokemon is a huge nostalgia trip for me. So in honor of the 20th Anniversary of Pokemon, I will be releasing a Top 10 Favorite Pokemon list for each generation of Pokemon.
So lets channel my inner child as we travel through time back to the Kanto region! Back then, there were only 150 Pokemon, and for this list I’m going to choose just 10 of them. Each Pokemon on this list holds a special place in my heart!
2016 marks 20 years of Pokemon…Twenty years, has it really been that long?! Twenty years later and I still love Pokemon. I don’t think I’ll ever not love Pokemon…So with that being said, nostalgia has struck again, as I have said before in an earlier post, Johto and the Gen 2 Pokemon games were my first introduction to the Pokemon world…Johto is where I fell in love with Pokemon, but it wasn’t until Gen 3 that I really began to get serious about it.
Prior to the release of Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire (ORAS), the third generation of Pokemon was generally panned upon it’s initial release. Some fans even credit Ruby and Sapphire for bringing about the beginning of Franchise Fatigue.
