So sorry to inform you of this, (don't freak out!) but I unfourtunately didn't get enough time to write up my Pokemon reviews before today. I'm going on holiday, so I won't have access to a computer for a while I will do my best to write up the Pokemon reviews as soon as I get back!
Goodness that's a lot haha. Green is similar to blue, but I love the Engrish translation and some of the sprites are hideous I believe that maybe some poke's are different, but I'd have to double check. And I'm sorry you missed out on Gen II tis the best haha
Haha, awesome. To answer your question, no I never played Green... I assume it's just the same as Blue though? I played Red when it first came out here in the UK, then I missed out on Gen II because my Gameboy broke.
I then bought a GBA and "borrowed" (permanently) a friend's, so when I got Ruby and Sapphire I started to work on finishing the (then) 386-Pokemon Dex. I got Fire Red and Leaf Green too, but Leaf Green was an import that didn't work properly and I infuriatingly managed to lose my Fire Red cartridge...
I then moved onto Diamond and Pearl, after I bought a DS for that purpose. I bought a DSi XL when I could afford it too, so now I have 2 DS consoles and every Gen IV game. My Pokemon collection now lives on my HeartGold cartridge, and I use Diamond/Pearl/SoulSilver for Challenges and other runs, because I can breed and trade pretty much any Pokemon from my HG cartridge.
Just got Black and White last week too, and finished the E4 on Black yesterday... My Pokemon gaming will never end...
Usually I do, although I often skip them because I can't stand ocean routes, principally because there's literally nowhere you can go to get away from the wild Pokemon encounters. Darn Tentacool/Wingull... It's worth it though for the EXP in the end.
Ah damn you just reminded me... I ought to take those water routes and head to the abandoned ship Well, that can wait until after dive I suppose. Do you often take those routes by Petalburg and Dewford as soon as you get surf?
Well I suppose some levelling should take care of that... I was thinking all around lvl 55 should be good enough. That actually might be overkill on Tauros and Mag, but Dewgong will definately have to be high leveled.
