Wait, Ruby gave you nostalgia? Of Pokemon? That sentence seems like it has a typo or something.

I liked Emerald cause of the Battle Frontier. Now that was fun.

I never had any Gen II or Gen III games. I went from Blue straight to HeartGold.

Can't wait for my paycheck so I can afford BW2 and the new Mumford & Sons album when they come out.

Ruby and Sapphire give me nostalgia, too. I was 10 when they came out. Good times. And they were the first games where I had really competitive battles with my friends via link cable.

Silver was my first Pokémon game. And it's still my favourite. Ever. Of all time.

Off topic, but don't you hate it when you're late to something? My whole family's late for a wedding, and it's at this really fancy place. And I wanna get there. Worst part: no suit! =(

And in attempt to remain somewhat off topic, I've actually never played Yellow.

It's been 10 freaking years since Ruby came out. I'd say it certainly qualifies to be a nostalgia giver, but they were such a huge leap forward graphically and in terms of movement rates that it often still feels like I'm playing a current generation game whenever I pick up one of the 5 games of that generation.

Blue was my first game ever, but I think I had the most fun playing Gen III's games (in particular, the 2 I had from that gen - Sapphire and LeafGreen) because that's the generation that things finally started being competitive between my brother, several of my younger cousins, and myself. Before that, I was wiping the floor with all of them because I was the walking Pokemon knowledgebase.

Wow, 10 years already? I still remember when I first got it and unboxed it and played it and AAAAA. It was magical. I miss the old days lol.

...god I sound like an old man right now.

Gen III was okay but not that great. Hoenn was mixed - quite a few of the locations were good (Fortree, Mt. Chimney, Sootopolis, etc.) but there was way too much water and very few of the routes were very memorable. Team Magma and Aqua were pathetic and most of the new Pokemon weren't that great. It wasn't bad, just not my favorite (Gen IV is).

Gen III was when they made the jump to GBA so I didn't get a Gen III game until years later because my mom couldn't afford to get my sister or I a GBA lmao. I still remember my friend being pissed at me because I would come to her house and play her Ruby instead of actually playing with her. I was a terrible person.

I loved Gen III's locations. I was like 'omg where are the roads?' when I hit Fortree, and the invisible 'walls' (the Kecleon) faked me out so badly, dear God. Do you understand how long it took me to figure out that I wasn't going to be able to get into the Gym without furthering my route to the right? It took me forever. I was so dumb... anyway, and Steven flying away was cool, too. I loved every bit of those games except the Pokemon.

I got Ruby two months before it was released in Europe- I got an American copy in a contest, and then a Spanish Sapphire a few months later. I loved listening to Team Magma's theme and feeling privileged to be playing the game so early. Loved it to bits and replayed it a million times. Probably I'd consider it my favourite ever.

****in' smart.

OT: Gen 3 was awesome. It was my childhood essentially. I started playing Gen 1 but I was so young I barely remember any of it. I did remember... Well... Everything about the game like the areas, towns, maps, etc, but I lost most of my memories of it. My memories of Gen 3 are still intact to this day.

Gen 2 remains my favorite generation though and the runner up is 4th Gen. Gen 3 is only third on my list...

It's hard to believe its been 10 years already. I still have my Hoenn games and play them a lot, though their batteries are pretty much all dead ;_; so no growing berries and stuff. I played them a lot, missing out on Gen 4 for a while which I finally remembered when HG/SS were going to be out. Im currently replaying Emerald for fun, good times. Id hope for a remake on the 3DS to solve that internal battery problem and just to be able to play an updated version of Hoenn.

The only thing about it was the font. Oh gawd awful

I gotta agree with other people here; I can't believe that PC's been around for 10 years now.

And as for me, my first Pokemon games were Ruby/Sapphire, even though I played Sapphire first. Good times, good times.

And on a random note, I'm in my college's cafe now.

I remember playing Sapphire like it was yesterday. :,D
I just realized that PC is older than a couple of my siblings. O_o

I actually enjoyed Leaf Green more than Sapphire.

And my first game was Blue. Have no idea where it is now though the battery in it is probably dead wherever it is.

My uncle played Blue and he's shown me his original GB and cartridge. He's one of those people who love Gen I and dislike everything past Gen II.

Blue was my first game also. It's amazing to think that it's been nearly 13 years since that game was released in the UK (obvs longer for most of the rest of the world but MY NOSTALGIA STARTS HERE, DAMMIT!) While I don't think I'd call it my favourite, I probably spent the most time on that out of any Pokemon game, just because I had the most free time on my hands and it was all shiny and new!

Pokemon Yellow was my first Pokemon game. I was big into the anime then too. Simpler times.

Today I've been playing a lot of the Pokemon Trading Card Game (for the Game Boy). One of my favourite spin-offs ever, even though I don't play the TCG in real life. I used to when I was younger though.

Pokemon Red was the first pokemon game that I played back in 1998. I used to be a big fan of the anime too, but I still watch some of the anime if nothing else is on the TV.

I was never really into Pokemon TCG, even though I did have some of the cards....
