Back in that time, the only thing I ever paid any attention to with building my teams was types. I assumed most all Pokemon of the same type were about equal. Now, I realize just how wrong I was. I was like "So THAT's why Pikachu kept getting stomped by Gyarados." XD

    I just used my favorites. My team usually consists of my starter, a surfer, a flyer, and three other random dudes.

    I agreeeee!
    I started playing the games only a few years ago. I didn't know about stats and all. I only used to use my starter Pokemon and few of my favorite Pokemon

    Yess, it was very nice being able to do this! Back in the days where Pikachu felt strong, Chansey was just another Pokemon, no worries about stats or IVs... Man I miss those days. :( The type match-ups that they got wrong always made me laugh too haha.

      same here.
      but when i think about it, i prefer it the way it was back then - carefree playing. now that i've learnt about IVs and EVs and natures and what not, i take even longer to play the games because i'm trying to get a pokemon of suitable nature. not to mention the characteristics. all these things complicate the game a whole lot, but at least it increases the challenge (:

      Welcome, gunnerpow7!

      I agree on the fact that it was much more fun when we could play the games carefree. But, now, while I do like the challenge, it's impossible for me to play a game without thinking "Wait, what's that Pokemon's nature?"

            Please note everyone: before we have our first WiFi event, I want to have at least 12 eligible participants. Invite people who you think might want to join this club.

            I always chose Charmander myself in the old games. Charizard is awesome.

            For me, when I first start playing any game of Pokemon, I always use my starter and only train it while I catch other pokemon, I don't train them... But now... nothing changed.. except the fact that I know now how to use the tpes... =)

            I pick Squirtle because it is the only thing I can use. I tried to use the other two but nah, it did not work for some reasons

              Starters wise, I always used to choose Charmander and my brother ALWAYS choose Squirtle (we always restarted the games at the same time to play through them together and stuff then we also cable battled, I physically cried once when he kept choosing Squirtle XD) but now since I actually know about Pokemon rather than choosing what's cutest, I always go for Bulbasaur due to my profound love of Poison type Pokemon :3

              Members, I am now starting our first event within this club. This is not WiFi based, so everyone can participate.

              Create-a-Banner Contest
              For this event, members are to create their own banners/userbars for this club. Each member may submit up to 3 banners or userbars. These can be 100% custom-made, or they can utilize official artwork/sprites and screenshots from the games or anime. Send them to me by PM. From the date of my post describing the event, you have one week (12/28/2011) to send in your work. All participants get a new partner Pokemon of their choice. Mention what you want your new partner Pokemon to be in your PM. Then, I will hold a voting period for who has the best work. Whoever has the most votes will get to have one of their partner Pokemon upgraded to shiny. Everybody's submission, regardless of quality, will be added to the OP after the event is over.

              EDIT: Made some changes above if you read it before I made the changes.

                    My brother and I do the exact same thing, except i don't pick Bulbasaur. Charmander all the way.
                    Too me Charmander is like my life, it goes. I start again. I give myself the most extreme challenges without meaning to. By Blaine i already have a level 70ish Charizard. I went through Red version once with 4 pokemon.

                    Ahah, I used to do this too! I had an attitude of "this Pokemon can beat anything!" and used it for the whole time so it got to ridiculous levels. Man, those were fun times!
