The third generation of Pokémon games started with Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire, released in 2003. The games have better graphics, 135 new pokémon (for a total of 386), a new region named Hoenn, two new evil teams (one for each game), new Gym Leaders and Elite Four, and some new features like abilities, natures, double battles, contests and some changes to pokémon stats. The games were received well, and together they were the best selling games on the console. 11 years later, in November 2014, the games got their remakes titled Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.
