List Criteria: Vote for your favorite Gen 3 Pokemon, which don't have to necessarily be the strongest

Here we rank the greatest generation 3 Pokemon, in terms of appeal, strength and overall coolness. In the first two generations there were 251 Pokemon to catch, and luckily for fans the third generation introduced another 135 creatures in Pokemon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald. The starter Pokemon in generation 3 are Treecko, Torchic, and Mudkip, and although they're generally not considered the coolest starters, they still are beloved by millions of fans.

If you want to vote on things like "Who is the best Pokemon from Ruby and Sapphire?" then this list is where you can make your voice heard. Other sites may have lists on this subject, but Ranker is the only place where you can actually vote and determine the outcome of this ordering.

Generation 3 was unique in that it moved the player away from Kanto and Johto, instead placing them in the secluded Hoenn region. Some players were upset that gen 3 introduced 10 new legendary Pokemon, but most were very happy with additions of amazing Pokemon like Kyogre and Groudon.
