    I recently downloaded an emulator and I want to play a pokemon game, but Idk which one. I never played pokemon games and there are many to choose from.
    What's your favourite pokemon game, do you recommend it and why?
    Thanks

    the ones that get me the most would probably be the 2nd generation, Gold, Silver, Crystal, Crystal being my favorite of the three.

    they have a lot more in general, making it a longer experience and a more diverse gameplay.

    the next set would be the 3rd generation, Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, as it contains many other functions not necessary to battle. a little more casual, if you will. this was the set i had grown up on the most, and my nostalgia maxes out here. otherwise, i would pick it for first.

    Red, Blue, and Yellow go here too, but only because of nostalgia.

    the 4th generation, Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, introduces way too many extra stuff, such as the underground maze/excavation/hideout thing. but, as the first ds game in the series, they wanted to use the touch screen features.

    from here on, i would say the gamecube games Coliseum and XD: GoD come in 4th place on my list for nostalgia. really cool visuals and story, but limited freedom compared to the mainstream games.

    then the rest follows the generation, for me. but that is because as i grew up, so too did my attention span focus on other things. i find it a shame, actually.

    i hate being old.

    third Gen is a no-go.
    Too much water.
    Try Gen 4; much better!

    My favorite Pokémon games are the Pokémon ranger and Pokémon mystery dungeon (-gates to infinity, that one is not good) spin-off games.

    Pokemon Platinum is my fav because of nostalgia. Though it is slow, it's very fun with great pokemon and a region with good variety

    Pokemon Black and White are pretty great for how different and unique it is from the other games in the series

    Heart Gold and Soul Silver are probably two of the best pokemon games so try them out

    It would also be nice to check out the fangames like Uranium and Insurgence

    Black 2 is my favourite; but that's mainly because the movie studio; I spent hours getting the perfect movies. Gameplay wise, I enjoyed Platinum more

    Pokemon emerald. Mostly she to nostalgia. On a side note the mystery dungeon games are honestly super good

    Pokemon Emerald was my favorite out of the main games. If you're planning on playing the mystery dungeon series, I suggest playing Pkmn Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of the Sky. It's pretty much EoTime and EoDarkness, but it has a lot more content (Special Episodes).
    Edit: Another thing why I liked Emerald was that it was the last game where you could use Cut on tall grass. If you have the time, try out the post-game Battle frontier as well
