    The problem is I've yet to get my FRed and LGreen copies. My mistake, because I adored the originals.

    Giving a pet away can be very hard.

    What would you plan to study if you did go there?

    LOL niceeee.
    yeah im like in the beginning of FR and pearl, which is a shame because you can get some good ass pokemon from those games. i'm only playing SS right now, it'll be like a full time job playing all three.
    i used to have a collie and i loved her so much but i had to get rid of this day i still get teary eyed about it. i need to get another collie...

    Get a slight headache.

    I'd like to get leaf green. I don't have much on my Platinum or Diamond version. The only versions (pokedex) I've completed legitimately was the original blue I played. I haven't done any real trading in the newer versions because I don't really know many people that play pokemon, well, at least they don't play it a lot of the time.
    Actually most of the cats are outside cats. (An outside cat started staying around here and had a few kittens. I live pretty far out in the country so they just wander around my backyard which is 20 acres of woodland.) Why do you want a Collie? Both of my inside cats are Blue Mitted Ragdolls.

    You have six cats?? Sweet. I have two dogs, which I hate. (there not mine, my dads) I'm hoping to get a cat soon, and a collie eventually. story behind collie @[email protected] lol.
    I still need to work on my pearl and FR versions...

    LOL i posted on my own page

    Really I'm fine in either setting, plus it doesn't particularly matter because I'll just be residing in a cramped apartment either way. But still, it would be nice to go to a place that's close to the ocean. (And not merely a port, such as those in Tokyo.) But there are definitely places I want to visit while living there. (There's this one cool sounding natural reserve that's in Hokkaido where most of it is only accessible through foot.)
    I like animals as well, I have six cats at the moment. I have my original copy of the Blue game, and my Older brother left his Red here when he moved away.

    Oh god, not the 外人 stuff... D: I'll be sure to look out for that. And yeah, you should go wherever you feel comfortable. Some people like cities some people like farm areas, and maybe in between.
    I got into pokemon when red and blue came out. I got red originally, but now I still have my blue version I got shortly after. I've always been into pokemon and tamagotchis because I really like animals LOL.

    Well, I definitely see the benefit to living in Tokyo, but at the same time I think I might be better suited to somewhere more like Ishikawa.
    And yes, my friend does say that the benefit has been most positive for him.
    I don't know about sushi myself. I've had it, and I like it a lot, however it's a little more money than I'd care to spend. I've spent some time looking at different schools, and the main thing you want to look out for is the gaijin trap type schools. (They aren't necessarily bad, but the environment can be less than ideal in a way.)
    So did you first get into Pokemon when it originally came out?

    I never thought of doing that. :o That sounds like a good idea! Although, I'd like to go to Tokyo because I love city life. <_> I wanna eat sushi everyday! (jk).

    Oh, so basically the same thing I intend to do? Well, rather than a language school or just straight up J-uni, what you could do is apply to an international university. A friend of mine has done this and it basically works out like. You get the Japanese courses taught by an instructor which is in full Japanese, but your other courses are more in English. From what he tells me, the idea is to let you get used to living in (and daily life in) Japan before you move onto a full Japanese University. At the international U, you do things like order your meals in Japanese and most daily common interactions are in Japanese, but the course material is in English for some courses. So yeah, that's been my plan so far. Does this sound good to you as well?
    He tells me I should go to one near Tokyo, but personally I think I'd prefer somewhere a little less known. I kind of like a little less city life, in a way. I'd just hope that wherever I move has good fresh Fish, cause I'd like to cook with it.

    Either go to a language school over there a few times, and if I can speak good enough go to a uni there. I'll probably end up going to uni over here, but who knows. If I like it in Japan enough I could live there.

    Oh, and what do you plan to do once you go over to Japan?
