Favorite Gen 3 Pokemon

    Since the last thread expired, I decided to remake it. So which Gen 3 Pokemon were your favorites? Please explain your answers thoroughly.

    I always had a soft spot for Jirachi because it was one of the hardest Hoenn Pokemon to get. It took me a year to finally download one from the bonus disc that came with Pokemon Colosseum back in 2004 I think, but man was it worth the wait.

    Medicham. To begin with, I personally have always had a soft spot for its type combination, Fighting/Psychic, which back on Generation III was one of the sleekest around.
    It has one of the best abilities, Pure Power, which allows this Pokémon to hit very hard. Further than that, its mega evolved form is in my opinion one of the best looking all around and gives this Pokémon some perfect characteristic to describe in the best way possible its sleek type combination.

    Probably Sceptile (Crawdaunt, Swellow, Torkoal, Glalie and Manectric are other contenders). The anime is the main reason as Ash’s was a great addition to the cast. It’s a speed demon who has a impressive movepool and even cooler Mega. Wish it had a better Ability and special movepool

    I have several favorites, but my main one at this moment is Bohmander (Salamence). Admittedly, I didn't like it that much back when R/S were first released, but after seeing its Mega Evolved form in OR/AS, I really started liking it and I even bought a Mega Bohmander plush doll.

    Absol - has a cool design, a sad backstory and a wide movepool. I've also grown to like its Mega.
    Salamence - the first true European dragon in the series. Hits very hard, too. Shame its Mega is not just overpowered, but unappealing, too.
    Milotic - incredibly elegant and tough to beat thanks to Recover.
    Manectric - looks sleek and can use Flamethrower. Never really liked its Mega, though.
    Latios - love his colour scheme, huge movepool and high Speed and Special Attack. Again wish he had a better-looking Mega.
    Kyogre - has a great backstory and Ability. Favourite legendary Pokemon ever.
    Other Hoenn Pokemon I like are: Swampert, Metagross, Latias, Groudon, Armaldo, Aggron, Altaria, Zangoose, Exploud, Flygon and Breloom.

    Latios and Salamence probably. They were some of the first pokemon I became familiar with as a kid and they still have very appealing designs for me. I loved being able to fly on Latios in ORAS. It was like a childhood dream come true.

    Latios is my favorite Gen III Legendary. I remember playing Sapphire version first and being really upset when I found out that Latios wasn't obtainable in that game without an event. I had to purchase Ruby version just to get Latios [and Groudon].

    Milotic!
    I remember when I was...11 or so, when emerald was still new, I searched and searched almost every tile on route 119 for a feebas as Milotic was my dream pokemon at the time.
    I finally found the tile, and fished like crazy to get a bunch of them, now my milotic is in Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness and is Lv 100 <3

    Anyone else try to find a feebas back-in-the-day when it was actually rare?

    Yep and it was a real pain to get, let alone raise.

    It's easy to level up as it needs very little amount of exp. points.
    I happened to find a random Feebas in Sapphire, but just once.

    The whole beauty side of it, not in terms of the exp part.

    Well... Yeah, that was indeed annoying.

    I remember fishing and finding a few after reading the video game guide, although I didn't actually evolve one until about a year later, and I only did so for collection purposes. To be completely honest, I find Milokarosss (Milotic) to be one of the least appealing Pokemon from Gen III based purely on its design. It's essentially just a less ugly version of Gyarados from my point of view.

    Sharpedo was my favorite one tied with Swampert because I like Water mons the most. Sharpedo and Swampert both look epic and strong and I used each of them in Emerald and Ruby.

    Just look at my avatar! After that, it's Swampert, then Metagross, and then Rayquaza

    I remember seeing Samehader's (Sharpedo's) design back in 2002 I believe, and I mistook its design thinking that its tail was simply behind it unseen in the official artwork. Then I saw its back sprite and noticed that it looked like half of its body was missing, so my interest in it decreased. I still like it somewhat and I even used it on my Emerald team, but to me it looks incomplete.

    Milotic because it’s just such a glamorous and downright extra Pokémon. I remember seeing it for the first time and saying “I need one.” Unfortunately, I did not know how to acquire one back in the day. I did replay Sapphire relatively recently and I made sure to add a Milotic to my team now that I knew how to get one (after spending more time fishing in Route 119 than I care to mention).
