It's time for another weekly installment of Gamnesia's Game Clash! Every weekend, we pit two (or more) games against each other, and the winner is decided by your votes. We've been doing a month of Pokémon battles in preparation for the launch of Pokémon Sun and Moon, and Generation III beat out Generation IV with 55% of the vote in last week's poll.

The final Pokémon Game Clash takes us to the regions of Unova and Kalos. Pokémon Black and White left the past behind to focus on a new batch of Pokémon, then bucked tradition by leading into sequel games instead of a third version. X and Y introduced new mechanics like Mega Evolution and brought the series to Nintendo 3DS. Which generation is better? Hit the jump to cast your vote and join the debate!
