i'm in your conscience
Yeah, I thought it could be a nice discussion instead of a small question in the Q&A thread haha. :P
Anyway, I think my first time playing Red, my play time was around 55 hours? Which is my general time for first playthroughs I believe. If you meant the amount of days, I couldn't tell ya cause that was soooo long ago haha. I don't bother catching all the Pokemon, but in RBY if you want to get certain items from the aides, you kinda have to take that extra time, so yeah, I did that just for the items, but I only raised Pokemon that I wanted to keep with me permanently.
