The third generation of Pokémon games, also known as the “Gen III” games, was released in 2002 and includes Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald. This generation introduced 135 new species of Pokémon, bringing the total number of species to 386.

The third generation games take place in a new region called Hoenn and feature new cities, towns, and routes to explore, as well as new Gym Leaders and Elite Four members to battle.
