    I really enjoy Hoenn. Maybe a better rival perhaps but besides that it’s fine.

    FRLG on the other hand really lacked PG besides the Sevii Islands.

    FRLG should have added
    - Gym leader rematches
    - Orange Islands was a missed opportunity. Come on GF. Really.

    They probably could've used a level increase in the post-game, and since R/S/E had few training spots, perhaps that would've been a good way of leveling up our Pokemon more conveniently.

    Gym Leader rematches should've definitely happened but the Orange Islands were an anime creation so of course GF didn't use them.

    And, the Sevii Islands actually used the same real life inspiration as the Orange Islands.

    Gym Leader rematches in the Kanto remakes would've been fine I suppose, although the Vs. Seeker seemed like a good alternative since we could get lots of training done with that alone.

    The ingame trades in R/S suck. Every Pokemon that was offered was common in the wild so trading for them felt pointless, unlike half of LG/FR's trades.

    That might be a good thing, however. I disliked how so many rare Pokemon were restricted to in-game trades in FR/LG, so R/S/E's trades seemed far more reasonable.

    For me, FR/LG could've (should've) had animated sprites at the beginning of a battle, as they had in Emerald. It's a small touch but was something I liked. Gym leader rematches should've also been been possible and maybe a battle facility akin to Emerald's Frontier would've been a nice addition .

    Well FR/LG came out before Emerald, and I figure that Game Freak didn't decide to bring back animated sprites until Emerald was in development. At least the FR/LG sprites bounced a bit on the status screen.

    Gen III is my favourite generation overall, and here are it's very few flaws imo:

    -the Eastern Water half of Hoenn's routes are a mess and it's easy to not know where you are going.
    - no physical- special split
    - no visible day-night cycle
