I have always loved them, the immense oceans of Hoenn are lovely, you can never fully explore the area, I could of played the game for years and still manage to find new items and unbeaten trainers in the waves. But this is interestingly what other people hate about Hoenn.

Also as far as land routes go, the Hoenn super tall grass route was fun, but even better what the first gen route between Lavender Town and Fushia City, which basically was the entire eastern coast of Kanto, I loved that route to death.

What is your opinion of such areas?
