I lol'd at this. Good times.
So inspired by this thread, I just pulled out my GBC and am restarting Yellow as I type. I am flooded with memories from being 8 years old.
My fondest memory, though, is training an Abra, evolving it, then trading back and forth with my friend Cody to get an Alakazam. I think I got Ala to about level 70 by the time I was at the E4. I remember running out of PP on my attacks though so I had to beat Blue with Flash and Struggle.
