To make it clear I'm not asking between all 3, I'm asking between the 2 of them, D/P and PT. Or if they have the same difficulty level, just say so.

PT > D/P

IMO PT is hard because there is the distortion world, the battle frontier, and elite 4 and champion have better Pokemon, as well as the gym leaders. But though more difficult, it is also a lot of fun too.

It's distortion world
Thanks
Getting an overleveled starter that one-shots everything with fire blast or surf is ridiculously easy. I don't think the teams used by gym leaders or Elite 4 members matter a lot.

Currently, Pt is in fact 2 minutes easier to speedrun. Such a small difference is likely caused by many minor changes between DP and Pt, so it's difficult to explain.

Getting Battle Tower streaks and competitive battling are definitely easier in Pt. The main reason is that Pt has more move tutors, so more Pokemon can learn strong moves like ice punch or superpower.

There are also a few good Pokemon, like Gliscor and Zapdos, that are obtainable in Pt but not DP.

Also feel free to hide this question if you're an editor or moderator and think it's too opinion-based.
