Generation 3 - consisting of Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald - was a big step forward for the Pokemon franchise. There was a new region (Hoenn) to explore, filled with more legendaries and Pokemon-related gang activity than ever before. Abilities and Natures were introduced and the stats were reconfigured, thus dooming competitive Pokemon battling to a fate of insanely-detailed training for all time. And it was the first generation on the Game Boy Advance, allowing the game to look less horrible than ever before.
We're going to go through every generation of Pokemon, whittle it down to the very best (like no one ever was), and then - eventually - we'll vote on the greatest Pokemon ever. So let your voice be heard. It's up to you. You decide who are the greatest Pokemon of all-time.
Gotta vote 'em all!
