    Just a quick note - please remember to keep discussions focussed only on the first generation Pokémon and not the games/region, otherwise the club becomes a copy of the Gen I forum. Thanks! :)

        I've always appreciated Lapras myself, it's a wonderfully tankish high-DEF mixed attacker. Anyway, you're in, welcome to the club.

          As I said before, please remember to keep discussions focussed only on the first generation Pokémon and not the games/region as otherwise the club becomes a copy of the Gen I forum. Otherwise this club will have to close. Let's not get it off to a bad start :) I'll suggest a basic topic for people to answer for now until you come up with a new one:

          What do you think is the most interestingly designed Gen I Pokémon and what do you think are its origins?

          Articuno. I just love it's design.

          Since the legendary trio of Johto came from Ho-oh, maybe these ones came from Lugia

              Answer to Current Topic: Arcanine. I'd like to think that he is the first Psuedo Legendary Pokemon to be introduced (given that he was originally supposed to be part of Kanto's Legendary Trio with Articuno and Zapdos).

              Reason for Joining: Playing Pokemon Red was a defining part of my childhood and (believe it or not) helped shape the kind of person I am today.

                You're both in. Welcome to the club!

                As for the new topic, I'd have to say that Scyther is the most interestingly designed of the Gen. I Pokemon. With Scyther, Game Freak took the concept of a Praying Mantis, added blades, and created something remarkably badass.

                  Partner Pokemon: Vaporeon (if you didn't guess already, haha)

                  Answer to current topic: I think the most interestingly designed Pokémon from Gen I is Gyarados. I love the detail that was put into it - it's so elegant and beautiful yet intimidating I also love the old Chinese legend about it's origins - if a carp could successfully swim up to the mountain top and jump down the waterfall (can't remember the exact story), it would turn into a magnificent water-dragon. This stuff fascinates me!

                  Reason for Joining: I don't think the Gen I Pokémon are credited enough, really. Of course, everyone remembers them, but I actually feel sorry for younger ones growing up with the Pokémon we have today, not that they're bad or anything, but I have to admit I prefer the older ones. I've basically joined to help show that people do remember them, and remember the best story lines ever that were in the anime. I remember the first ever episode I watched - the one where Charmander's trainer abandoned him and I cried so hard! So, I caught up on all of the episodes and never missed one. Seriously. If I had to go out, I'd beg my mum to let me watch the episode first. It's my favourite generation and it had my favourite trio - Ash, Brock and Misty!
                  Ah, nostalgia!

                    Partner Pokemon: Neeee-dooooh-reeeee-naaaaah~
                    Why'd I join: Because my memory is spotty and the only Pokemon I can remember most of the time come from the first generation. Most of my favorites are from there, too, but that's probably a side effect of the first reason.

                    Current Topic: Er, I don't really think any of them are extra special. In a way, that's what either makes them great, or what makes them bland depending on the person's viewpoint. I think from an illustrator's point of view who loves detail, other generations have been better. From an animator and character designer's PoV, though? Designs from later generations are atrocious and unnecessary. You're going to get way way WAY more pencil milage out of the first generation, trust me.

                    There's a reason the designs became more streamlined in the first generation in the first place. Compare Sugimori's Red/Green art to the way the Pokemon look now. Check out how much asymmetry is in the old designs. Cool, right? Now try drawing those little details in an animation over and over and over and over and over again. And that's just for a 5 second bit of footage. Do this again for months, and you've finally got an episode. Oh wait, you're not finished yet, now do the other 51 episodes! You can see why they made stuff easier over time.

                    I symphathize with animators, so I like the first 151 because they're simplistic. Though I'd agree Gyarados probably has one of the more complex designs.

                      Yeah, the simplicity of the original 151 is something I can definitely appreciate. Sometimes the new designs can be a bit much, and the older Pokemon are a nice relief. As for Gyarados, I do agree that it had one of the most complex designs of the generation, but then again, it's a Chinese Dragon, and Chinese dragons are overall more complex.

                      I guess this is as good a time as any to change the topic. New topic: Which gym leader gave you the most trouble in the games? For me, it'd be Misty. That damn Starmie, it always beats me.

                          For me it was that grass one. OK, I was playing HG when I was fighting her. Yeah, I chose Totodile. With no fire or flying types on my team.

                          Also, I found the poison one hard too in HG. Not the fight, just getting to her. INVISIBLE WALLS?!

                            New Topic: Excluding the Chamander, Bulbasaur, Squirtle and Pikachu lines, if you could choose any evolutionary line from the original 151 to be your starter, what would it be?

                            Mine would be Growlithe without a doubt. I'm most partial to Fire types and Arcanine is one of the best Pokemon I've used in any game.

                            The answer to this question (and almost any other question) is Nidoran Female. Every time. All day long.

                              Answer to current topic: I have to say that I would start with a Nidoran(f) just like DPS because I love Nidoqueen. Definitely one of my favorites.

                                  Reason for Joining: As I said, I grew up in the original 151 and Red became my first game to play. It was also the generation that obviously began my interest in Pokemon, and never regretted ever since. <3

                                  Going to start off with a new topic to replace the old one. :D

                                  Which Pokemon of the original 151 do you think is the cutest/most aborable?
