Okay, this is for those of you who enjoy a good evening with that battered old copy of Blue.

Who had a nerdgasm when you saw the Indigo League DVDs in stores.

If you've noticed that your list of favorites tends towards Pokemon that are a decade or so old.

If realizing that makes you feel hideously old.

In short, this is for the people who fell in love with Red, Blue, and Yellow, who remember the rabid fervor they had on the release date of Gold and Silver. Who cried during "Pikachu's Goodbye" and thought Professor Ivy was a lousy wench who was no good for Brock.

This is for the fans of Pokemon through Crystal or the end of the Orange Islands arc.

I know I belong here as I said yes to almost everything on the first post except for crying during the episode "Pikachu's Goodbye" it was the episode "Gotta Catch Ya Later" which had that effect on me. And also I was neutral on Brock leaving during the Orange Islands as I did not have any strong feelings toward him. Personally, I started out with Red and remember the day I got it too. I got the game for my 12th birthday in May of 2000 along with the players guide and a brand new atomic purple Gameboy Color. And that Christmas I got Silver along with the Pikachu 2 virtual pet and I also got the G/S edition Gameboy Color in the spring of 2001 which I still have to this day and it still works perfectly.

I like several Pokemon but if I had to pick my favorite from generation 1 or 2 I would have to say Starmie because it is tough and can cover well for its weaknesses.

MUST... JOIN... CLUB!!!1

Kanto and jhoto were probably the best things ever to come out of pokemon.
and there is still one question that still ponders me.

If mewtwo is a stronger clone of mew, then.. why is it #150?
and mew #151?
I know that mew isn;t catchable in the old games,
which makes it #151, but since there were only suppose to be 150 pokemon,
doesn't that mean mew SHOULD be #150?

nickstr
August 7th, 2008, 05:46 PM
It is confusing to me too but then again don't bother trying to understand why this was but I think it has quite a bit to do with the the fact that you did not need it to have a complete Pokedex in those days since it was event only.

true.
it does make sence in some ways,
and other ways it doesn't.

but nothing really makes sence in the pokemon world anymore.
exactly, what are burgers made out of?
Tauros? Miltank?

I rest my case.

Can I join?

I have been in this series since 1999 and I miss the times from 2002 and earlier just because the series was so much better then. I miss Misty being a regular cast member on the show, I miss the Johto region, I miss the hillariously terrible graphics of RBYG (wait, I can just pull my gameboy out for that). I've been a fan of this series for 9 years now and I havent looked back.

My Favorite Poke? Dragonair, because its awsome, but my second fav and fav Starter is Typhlosion.
Burgers would be made out of Miltank not tauros because will not gore you if you try to turn it into a meal (unless it belonged to Whitney of Goldenrod City, in which case it will rollout you and frustrate you to no end.)

YEAH!! Misty was so much cooler than stupid may and max. misty was funny. there's no personality with the new people.

I still like pokemon a whole lot, but its really lost something with the newer stuff.

Favorite old pokemon: Squirtle cuz it was my first. i also like ninetales, rapidash, charmander, pikachu, starmie, the eevees, lapras, oddish, pretty much everything else

and after misty, all they do is get the female heroine of the region to take the girl poision.
and the weird thing is...
whenever a group member leaves ash's party, they seem... better off?
Now misty is a powerful gym leader, and may is a top cordinator with OMG POWERFUL POKEMON (as serebii is to be believed) evolved from her old wimpy pokemon.

but no one seems to know what happend to max...
maybe he'll come back later is the next region? and be ten years old?
and be a trainer?
meh...

Espy Psyche

Hmm, favorite Pokemon from GSC...Espeon. Before I knew anything about competitive Pokemon, Espeon's firepower with Psychic heavily impressed me.

For D/P competitive, favorite RBY/GSC Pokemon would have to be Moltres. Now that it has Roost and WoW, I can actually beat stuff like Milotic/Vaporeon with Moltres.

What I would really love to see is a Pokemon game where you get the chance to choose a bunch of things. It would be a massive project, but it would be so awesome.

What would you get to choose?

A unique sprite from an array of say, ten or so for each gender.
The region you're starting in.
Your hometown.
Your specialty (breeding, training, contests).
What order you want to do the regions in.
If you'd like to travel with other people.

Because if that were the case, there would be an almost endless supply of things to do in the first and second gen. Even if they just did it with the first and second gen pokemon, it would be awesome.

True, but Misty isnt completely happy as Gym Leader. When she briefly joined them around Kanto in Battle Frontier she didnt want to return to the Gym even though she had 30 challengers waiting.

My first Pokemon game was Red and I started on it back in 2000 on the day of my 12th birthday. I got the game along with an atomic purple Gameboy Color and the player's guide for Red/Blue. This game has since been lost but thanks to emulators I can still play it.

Thats so sad, man. I still have my red version, but nothing to play it on (I lost my GBA while I was at college). There's nothing like the classics. And I also had an Atomic purple GBC when I started too (weird coincidence).

That is a weird coincidence but my atomic purple GBC was destroyed and replaced with the G/S Gameboy Color which I still have today and still works. Problem is I don't have any GBC Pokemon games anymore since I lost my Silver too. Again that is one of the ROMs that I have so not as much of a big deal.

Well now... My first game was Red Version, as a Christmas present. My first starter was a Charmander. Yeah, kinda tough given the first two Gyms, but there's no denying that he's a badass choice.

Favorite first-gen would be Alakazam, hands down. He was the first I ever raised to level 100 and in the "Trainer's League" at my middle school, I dominated with him.

Favorite second-gen is Espeon. Yeah, I have a thing for Psychic-types, can you tell?

From what I have seen this could be called the Misty Club 2.0 since most of us here like her. I have been doing something related recently which was dealing with emulation of the Gameboy and Gameboy Color on a rather different platform, the Sony Playstation Portable. The system I am working with uses an older firmware which loaders for PSP applications known as Eboots can run. One cool thing about this is that I am not tied to my computer anymore and can now play the games on a device which has a similar feel to a physical Gameboy or Gameboy Color system. So far in Red on this emulator I have defeated Misty and am working on moving toward the Vermilion City gym. And in Silver I have yet to win my first gym battle but I am still going to move on and beat the game.

For nostalgia's sake, I'll join. In my opinion, the first and second generation games were the best. Not because of the graphics nor the gameplay (which were much better in the later games) but because the Pokémon were original, the games were original and everyone liked Pokémon back then so you didn't have to hide the fact that you played the games. Nowadays, regarding the status quo, Pokémon is at the bottom of the food chain and that has nearly destroyed Pokémon as a whole.

What was your first party of pokes?

Damn, that's a pretty hard one but I think it went in this order:


Charizard
Articuno
Blastoise
Vanasaur
Dragonite
Mewtwo


That was the team I had after I beat the Elite Four in Pokémon Blue. I managed to trick my friends into trading me their started Pokémon.

nickstr
August 26th, 2008, 03:47 PM
That sounds about right, all that happened is the battery died and the good thing is that you can find CR2025 button cells at just about any store. A direct replacement for them if you cannot find CR2025 is CR2032 as the voltage is exactly the same, 3 volts for both CR2025 and CR2032 and the only difference is that the CR2032 is just slightly larger.

Because most of the new pokes are kinda wierd. Gen IV was just terrible.

nickstr
August 27th, 2008, 02:09 PM
It is hard to say for me but a big reason is that the anime had quite a bit going for it at that time especially in generation I but I hated what happened to it during generation II and it was also when I could not wait to watch the latest dub episodes airing on Kids WB but this all came to an end in 2003. One thing that the games had going for them is the unique feel of Johto, it kind of had a historic feel in many of the cities also the Pokemon were unique and creative.

Anime/Mangalover247
August 27th, 2008, 06:27 PM

Dont get me started. I completed my pokedex for Gen IV in 4 months. I took me 2 years for Red; I never did for GSC (came close but got stuck around 245/251), and didnt for RSE or FRLG. I was very disappointed. I did like the snow routes (which I wanted in Johto), but otherwise Generation IV has been the most disappointing yet. I'll go back to Gens II or III now.

I never completed a Pokedex back in those days. What I mainly did was to battle the gym leaders, defeat the elite four, and do some stuff afterward then move onto another game. Kind of stupid but then again I am in a very small town (the population is less than 700) and as a result did not know many people who played the games nor had a link cable. Generation 4 added a few things that I liked but then again it was disappointing in some aspects as well but I really like the online battle and trade capabilities introduced in this generation.

If I remember correctly, Crystal did have the first Wi-fi capable system. In Japan the Pokemon Communication Center was in Goldenrod City and used Cell Phones to enable wireless trading and battling. That was the basis for the GBA Wireless Adapter and the current GTS/Pokemon Wi-Fi Battle network as well as the Wii and DS's own internet connections. So, we can (A) Thank Pokemon for Wi-fi gaming on consoles and (B) thank Generation II for starting it!
