heartgold/soulsilver is my pick. after all, the original gold was my first pokemon game ever making this a great nostalgia trip, it had the first appearance of my favorite pokemon element (dark), it's story line was great, and you finally get to prove once and for all, you're stronger then red. besides the post-game battle frontier is a great motivation to go back and keep training your pokemon for. it's probobly also the only pokemon game i've dumped 500+ hours into.

Your Favourite Pokemon Generation?

Excellent reasons to love HS and SS.

I personally have always taken a liking to Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum.

I first played Pearl out of the three, wanting to play more Pokemon after playing Ruby. Pearl was by far my favourite, and it is how I fell in love with the design and backstory of Palkia.

The whole topic of spacetime interests me deeply. It's such an "out there" concept, that's what really intrigues me.

Along with Generation 4 came Cynthia, probably my favourite Champion to fight. Cynthia was an amazing battle, having a well put together team and epic music to boot. I remember carrying Palkia through the halls of the Pokemon League.

The starters were great. Torterra being bulky and yet powerful, Infernape being a hard hitter and fast striker, and Empoleon being bulky, powerful, and having the unique typing of water/steel.

The enemy team, Team Galactic, was pretty awesome. Cyrus was a mysterious, quiet villain, and had an ominous atmosphere around him. His motive is very dark, wanting to erase the world only to reset it in his own image. A little cliche, but nonetheless, it immersed me in the quest to stopping him.

Gen 4 was where I was introduced to Garchomp, probably the most jaw dropping Pokemon I have ever seen, even to this day. Lucario also had the same effect on me.

When I played Platinum, and Giratina was introduced fully, I was set. A Ghost Dragon from a sort of purgatory (in which normal physics did not make sense), where it was banished to.

Post game, trying to complete the National Dex was the most fun I have ever had. No other Pokemon game will have quite the same impact on me, and I do hope that it is remastered.
