I was so addicted to this game that I played till 3Am, Those were the good times now I just do homework till 3AM!
I love this game, is the best because you can catch almost all the pokemons from the hoen region, also you are able to catch Kyogre, Rayquaza and Groudon. Another awesome thing about Emerald is that it introduces the Battle Frontier. Without doubt, if you are a true fan of the Pokemon franchise you MUST have this awesome game!
My first pokemon game was gold but I think this one was even better. There were so many places to explore even after beating the pokemon league like the sea and abandoned ship. And when you were done with that you could start catching the 7 legendary pokemon, and go the the battle frontier. Definitely the best game.
2. Pokemon Platinum
WHATS UP GUYS!
DIAMOND IS ON 3rd position and you are ignoring platinum
Well, I completely agree, for the fact that it does actually have a lot of differences between diamond and pearl. For instance:
You get a level 20 eevee at hearhome from bebe, but in D+P, That was lv.5
The drifloon you get at the valley windoworks, is now level 15 instead of 22.
You can walk with your starter in Hearthome!
Not to mention the different designs!
Am I right?
POKEMON PLATINUM: BEST POKEMON GAME BEYOND ANY CREATIONS! TO BE THE TOP! BOP TO THE TOP!
Trust me! If you play this game, you’ll never want to touch Diamond and Pearl ever again! Platinum is in my opinion better than both Diamond and Pearl combined, because it has better, more improvised story, more Pokémon to catch, more places to explore and that Distortion World… Yes, man! That’s my favourite part of the game! When you fight Team Galactic in Diamond and Pearl, you go, catch Dialga or Palkia and it all ends there!
However, in Pokemon Platinum, it’s not over yet! You have to go to Distortion World, fight Cyrus for one more time and then, catch Giratina! And there are more things to do, even in the after-game! Catch legendaries, go to Stark Mountain and fight Team Galactic again, etc.!
3. Pokemon SoulSilver
Unbelievable… Stunning graphics… And nothing to meddle with old memories… Definitely top notch on the behalf of Nintendo! New mixes with old, with not only a connection to Kanto, but the ability to look at Sinnoh and Hoenn through the Pokemon make this best yet!
For me, the Silver-Gold remakes are my number one games. I simply put SoulSilver first because I prefer Lugia over Ho-Oh. I’ve played every game in the main series since the beginning with Blue and let me tell you, SoulSilver is the best game and deserves it.
Not talking about nostalgia, since I hadn’t played Silver before this game, SoulSilver had outstanding graphics. The traditional Chinese environment Johto hosted made you really feel as if you were on an adventure in a foreign country. The houses, the cities, heck even people were based on a traditional Chinese society.
In addition to that, everything had an incredible backstory. The Ruins of Alph, the Sprout Tower, the Burned Tower, Bell Tower, Whirl Islands etc. Everything had a well-made, interesting legend. The legendary Pokemon were much more interesting than any other version, with the Legendary beasts supposedly embodying one of the three natural disasters that brought down the Tower, with Lugia flying off
This game is by far my favorite of all the Pokemon games. This is because in most of the games after the elite four your done. This one there a whole different region to play through. Graphix are great and the amount of quality Pokemon you can get is unmatched. Pokemon SoulSilver all the way!
It’s just so good.
4. Pokemon Fire Red
Those of you who are claiming that games like Diamond and Pearl can compete with the original Pokemon games or the remakes of the originals must have joined the Pokemon party late. The original games will forever be a masterpiece and hallmark of gaming. Those games launched a frenzy in their heyday the likes we will never see again. The nostalgia and memories will always make them top dog.
Nostalgia and memory shouldn’t be why the game was good. The hardware sucked and there were to many glitches.
I love this game. I think the original Pokemon game was the best, because hey, nothing beats the original! (I’m talking about Pokemon Blue/Red) But this game has much better quality to it, and better music, you can play it on the DS, and frankly it has Charizard on the cover who the ____ doesn’t like Charizard? LOVE THIS GAME
I don’t think this is the best but why not respect peoples opinions please?
This is my favorite Pokemon game because I spent the most time on it. I have totaled 431 hours on it alone.
The origin of red
5. Pokemon HeartGold
I’ve spent so much time on this game! It’s fantastic and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a Pokemon game. It takes a while to complete owing to the 16 badges rather than 8 and you can get a Johto starter, a Kanto starter and a Hoenn starter, unlike the other games. You can also get over 10 legendaries completely legitimately which is one of the highest numbers that you get in the game. Plus, you get the pokewalker, which is great if your out and about a lot, and an even easier way of portably playing and leveling up your Pokemon!
Good game. I found the title more attractive, since I’m a girl lol
Great game! Good to entertain you till black and white is out
6. Pokemon Black
I think the Black and White series have the most fleshed out and deep plots of the Pokemon series. Most people admittedly identify with the first generation more purely because of nostalgia, and I don’t think that’s fair to the later generations. 5th gen actually expanded its storyline with a second game and even provided back story to its characters (namely N) that we didn’t have to find out via the manga or anime. The soundtrack was amazing, and I actually teared up at the end when N flew off with his dragon. That’s a first for any of the main Pokemon games for me. I play games mainly for story, and that’s why the 5th gen ranks as number 1 for me. I cared about the characters, especially the returning ones in the sequels since they were familiar and I had previous baggage from the last game I brought along. The music helped drive the story more and I thought the dialogue was excellently written. There’s some sweet cut scenes thrown in too just for that much epic.
Why black is 15th? It’s so much better! I can’t believe that!
Pokemon black is the best Pokemon game ever! It has awesome, amazing graphics, as well as a super cool storyline! Don’t even get me started on the super cool Pokemon in this game.
Who crest if they are homages? And you judge them by just two pokemon only what?
This is actually my first Pokemon game ever and I have got to say, It’s the best so far.
7. Pokemon Diamond
This game is awesome great graphics great sound and animation lets face it this game rocks awesome pokemon and dialga is beast my favorite pokemon is lucario and he was invented here
Pokemon diamond is the best. The graphics are good but they don’t over do it like black and white. This game has the best pokemon ever! Girintina and my favorite Torterra. This was my second game after fire red (gameboy advanced version) so this was the game that actually taught me about pokemon it helped me understand pokemon. I also like this game because this game has more pokemon to catch, the hardest E4 and more legendaries than any other game. Finally this game was a great adventure because Sinnoh is the largest region, it let me explore and have a great time. I’ve played this game 400 hours and I’m not stopping. Any REAL pokemon fan should have this. And don’t bother getting black and white its the easiest game ever!
Pkmn diamond is a great adventure game that prevents you from giving up. Out out of all of my pkmn games, pkmn diamond is my favorite game. Most of people should like it too. Games like it are awesome!
Dialga my favourite!
Yes thanks for voting team Dialga!
8. Pokemon X
Why isn’t this at the top? It looks like the best yet! I mean, come on. Pokémon battles in 3D!
Let’s be honest it has by far the best graphics and before this the Pokemon games had really been taking a turn for the worse, but this game has really turned it around and it should definitely be in the top five. It is only down here because it is new and no one is willing to buy a new 3DS just for this game, but I did and I think that it was well worth it because I did not even sleep the night after I got it… It really is that addicting.
Great graphics so far and pretty decent Pokemon designs unlike generation 5, plus it looks like there will be a huge regional pokedex including a lot of older pokemon. Really exited for new battle systems like sky and horde battles. Can’t wait
Every one should try this because it cost 3,799 rupees. At 5 percent discount on Amazon application.
9. Pokemon Yellow
Nothing beats this one. It brings back so many memories for me and I love how it is just simple and to the point. Oh and Pikachu following you around is so adorable.
Pokemon R/B/Y set are the best. They will always be. 151 pokes were the first creations and they are genious designs. The followers are just found through a pile of what is left in the animal/plant kingdom. I might say yellow is so stuck with pikachu but still you collect all the starters and Team Rocket is more fun.
You can’t beat the originals. By far the best game of the series. So fun
Being the originals does not make up for the fact that it has the least features and worst designs in the series.
10. Pokemon Crystal
Hands down one of the best Pokemon games of all time! With so much depth in the story and so many great new places in the Johto region, along with the original Kanto region (with some minor tweaks, like Veridian Forest an the Power Plant). The great characters stories like your Rival being a criminal who becomes good have never been matched by newer characters. Even Joey and his Rattata had more depth than any new Black and White trainer, and who didn’t get annoyed by his constant calling, but still not feel bad for him whenever that Pidgey escaped his grasp?
Not to mention the new additions that forever changed Pokemon for what it is today: Genders in Pokemon an Main Characters alike, Breeding, Shiny Pokemon… The list goes on and on! The first game to have animated sprites and to have pokeballs that were made from apricorns. An amazing and haunting soundtrack (Who doesn’t get nostalgic from Ecruteak City’s theme song? and the first game to add different music for the “bad
It’s a great game! I’ve had mine for 8 years of my life. The first two regions are all I ever cared about because they were my childhood. I have right about 800 hours on mine. If I included the time spent before restarting, it might be about 820. The amount of time this game can accumulate annihilates any Wii, GameCube, or N64 game I’ve played!
This game has Pokemon from both the Kanto and Johto regions. So why vote for Pokemon Red or Blue? I understand that the newer games have more Pokemon and some of the same ones. Some people just like the first and second generation Pokemon more than the newer ones. This game should be rated #1.
Best game of Pokemon I really love it
