      Pokémon Yellow was the first game I played so Pikachu was my starter Pokémon. I think I have a Blue version though and I think my starter there was Bulbasaur. I love the sprites by the way.

      Username: CloysterOyster
      Partner: Bulbasaur
      Favorite generation 1 Pokémon: That's a hard one. I would say Eevee because of its ability to evolve into 8 different Pokémon.
      Why I chose to join this club: Nostalgia of the first generation Pokémon
      Current topic: because a Grass-type like Bulbasaur helped me get through the first 3 gyms with ease (Rock from Brock, Water from Misty and Electric from Lt. Surge).

        Well, not really. Firered and Leafgreen are technically third generation games, since that was the generation in which they were made, and they include all third generation Pokemon, even though a lot of them aren't even catch-able in-game. However, even if they had been first generation games, it wouldn't really matter, since the club is about the Pokemon, not the games :p

        Your favorite Gen 1 Pokemon: Pidgey!
        Why did you choose to join this club?: Despite the second generation games being my favourites, I've always liked the Pokemon of the first generation the best, since they were the originals and all, the first ones I ever got to know, and the first generation of Pokemon is the only one where I can name every single Pokemon and their typing in order with certainty :p This is probably mainly due to the fact that my combined playtime of both my Blue version and my Leafgreen version, I've played the games taking place in Kanto just a tad bit more, and thus, I am just a tad bit more familiar with the first generation Pokemon.

        Why did you choose your current partner Pokemon?

        Pidgey is my favourite Pokemon of all, mainly because it was the first Pokemon I ever caught and fully raised, excluding my starter. However, I honestly preferred Pidgey over my starter, because Pidgey was a Pokemon I actually had to catch, thus actually putting challenge into it, rather than just being handed the Pokemon. And to add on that, Pidgeys were actually actually tougher in R/B/G/Y than they were in the remakes, starting with Gust, which, even though it was a Normal type move back then, was just a bit stronger than what we usually see on Pidgeys today :p But yeah, I always really liked Pidgey, and when I got one in the second generation games as well, my bond with it just grew stronger (/corny). I was kinda upset when it wasn't in the third generation games, but oh well. For every day, I've just become more and more obsessed with it, and it's pretty easy to say, that it's definitely my favourite Pokemon, hence why I chose it as my partner Pokemon (and will continue to do so in any club in which I can choose it as a partner Pokemon :D)

          Why did you choose to join this club?: Pokemon Red was my first ever Pokemon game to play, and I have played it many times since. I know the first gen games like the back of my hands!
          Why did you choose your current favorite Pokemon?: I chose Charmander because I absolutely love fire types and Charmander also poses as a challenge to journey through the Kanto region, seeing that the first two gyms are Rock (which is Fire is not very effective towards, unless in FR/LG where Charmander learns Quick Claw, I think it's called) and Water (which is super effective against fire types). But once Charmander evolves into a Charizard is a tank, battling through any opponent it comes face to face with. c:

          Bulbasaur definitely made the start of the games pretty easy, just because the gym leaders weren't really challenging when you could just spam Vine Whip, Razor Leaf, w/e, and be done with the battles relatively quickly.

          Eevee is also definitely an interesting Pokemon, and its concept is pretty awesome.

          Ah yeah, Charmander was definitely not the easiest one to start off with, however I seem to recall beating Brock relatively easily back in my Blue version, simply by spamming Ember. I guess my Charmander must've had good Special Attack, or I'd just trained it a lot more than I remember :p But the challenge was most likely there because Charmander would grow to be such an OP Pokemon, there had to be some obstacles in the way of getting one. Back in my early days I actually thought Grass types were weak against Rock types, so I didn't use Bulbasaur till much later on, always either Squirtle or Charmander. Also, I think the move you're looking for is Metal Claw, a Steel type move, which is super effective against Rock types. I guess it was given to Charmander to give it more of a fair chance against Brock :p

            Lmao, i think we I first started, I didnt really train in the begining, which is why Brock was always a challenge for me. Charmander was also my first starter so I think I'll always have a soft spot for it and it's family tree. Charizard is well worth the wait! He is very OP, but none the less an amazing Pokemon. One time when I was playing through Blue version, Misty was so hard for me to defeat that I had raised my Charmander to a Charizard before even defeating her! Ah, memories. Yes, thanks, the move is metal claw! I couldnt quite remember it lol. I also love how Charizard can learn fly in FR/LG, not too sure if he can in 1st gen, though..hm.

            Ah, I see, that would make Brock a bit hard if you chose Charmander and didn't catch something like a Mankey to help you with :p But yeah, I totally agree, Charizard is definitely worth the pain that is leveling up your Charmander in those horrible conditions :p But wow, raising your Charmander to a Charizard before even beating Misty. Must've taken a heck of a long time D:

            Which starter Pokemon is your favourite, and why? (Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle).

            Eh, I'd probably have to say Bulbasaur, since that's pretty much the one I've chosen in my past 5 playthroughs or so. And the only reason for this really, is because it makes the start of the games so much easier, as I mentioned in my last post. I wouldn't really call any of the three my favourite, because they've never really stood out to me or anything, but after using Bulbasaur so many times, I've just grown fond of it, and would consider it a bit above the other two. Charmander used to be my favourite however, just because of how cool I thought Charizard was :p

                Oh, I love Eevee. Alot of people evolve it to make it more powerful but Eevee has a few moves that could make it strong all on its own like Take Down for example. 5 generations and a 6th on the way and we have 8 Eeveelutions now. Can't wait for more.

                    There'll be an Eeveelution for every type, which will make 18 different Eeveelutions including the new type, Fairy.

                      I enjoy using Eevee a lot! All the different choices of types is wonderful to have - it's like making your own custom Pokemon, in a way. My favorite Eeveeloution would have to be Espeon c:

                          I hope you don't mind if I join. I would have joined sooner, but I couldn't decide on a Pokemon >///<

                          Your favorite Gen 1 Pokemon: Ummmmmmmmm...... Hardest decision of my life! Um, I'll go with.... Dragonair!!!
                          Why did you choose to join this club?: Because I absolutely love the original 151 Pokemon! There isn't a single one I hate!
                          Answer one of the topics (Which starter Pokemon is your favourite, and why?): Another hard question! Well, I love them all, but I always chose Charmander ^-^ He was always my favorite, since he was a Fire-Type (slight pyro here )

                            I got to thinking of that episode the other day where Hypno hypnotized all those kids and Misty was barking like a Seel.

                            I wish Porygon and its evolutions were in the anime, seems empty without them but I understand why they're not and it tanks. :/

                                Your favorite Gen 1 Pokemon: Mewtwo

                                Why did you choose to join this club?: Because Gen 1 is where it all began, for me and for Pokemon!

                                Why did you choose your current favorite Pokemon?: Mewtwo is a Pokemon who was born as a laboratory experiment, who would come to be used at the behest of a tyrannical psychopath. Mewtwo was made to fight at the command of his Master, who he believed to be an ally, but who really manipulated Mewtwo's vulnerabilities. When Mewtwo finally had enough, he flew coop and made plans to destroy the world. But upon meeting some kids and Pokemon who showed him the other side of humanity, he decided to learn and grow beyond his rage, instead of stewing in it. He became a better being, even if he didn't change completely overnight. That's why I love Mewtwo.

                                  Your favorite Gen 1 Pokemon: Charizard

                                  Why did you choose to join this club?: I grew up knowing these creatures. Pokemon was a big part of my childhood and when I look back at Gen 1, I have fond memories of a time where life was simpler and I was a lot happier then than I am now.


                                  Current Topic:


                                  What Pokémon did you see most prominently in your Pokémon Gen 1 play through? Do you like this Pokémon?


                                  Rattata, Zubat, Tentacool. Raticate can be a very powerful Pokemon early on but outlives its usefulness later on in the game when better, stronger Pokemon becomes available. I appreciated Zubat a lot more in the 2nd Generation where it evolves into an extremely good Pokemon (Crobat), however, in Gen 1 where Crobat had not existed, it seems more annoying than useful. Tentacool I find equally as annoying. However, Tentacruel can make useful partners at times.

                                    Your favourite Gen 1 Pokemon: This is a very hard question. I'd say Ninetales.
                                    Why did you choose to join this club?: Because Gen I has some of the best Pokemon.

                                    What Pokémon did you see most prominently in your Pokémon Gen 1 play through? Do you like this Pokémon?
                                    I don't remember my whole team but I had Bulbasaur with me all the time (finally evolved into a Venusaur) and I evolved my Eevee into a Jolteon.

                                      Wow! Seems like the club is kind of exploding! (Or at least becoming a little more well-known )
                                      Anyways, I just felt like answering the new topic: What Pokémon did you see most prominently in your Pokémon Gen 1 play through? Do you like this Pokémon?
                                      Well, every step in caves was zubat battle after zubat battle, unless I was lucky enough to have a repel on me. I haven't played Gold or Silver in a while, ever since my poor internal batteries died, but from what I remember, I surprisingly ran into quite a few growlithes on one of them at the very beggining! But it was only when I didn't have any darn Pokeballs, and about after the third gym, I went back to try and catch some, but they were gone like the wind!! But it was still a fun game, all in all

                                        Your favorite Gen 1 Pokemon: Beedrill
                                        Why did you choose to join this club?: I'm not a Genwunner, and while I'm still out on whether or not Gen 1 is my favourite Generation, it is definitely close to my heart. I got into Pokemon back when it was the new thing, got interested with Nintendo Power's little Pokemon mini-mags back in the day, and eventually caved and got Blue Version. It was loads of fun, and while I can't remember much of what I did in those first few playthroughs, I can say with confidence that I can still plug in my old Red Blue and Yellow cartridges and have loads of fun with them all. The original 151 are more than just pokemon to me, they are the representation of my childhood.
                                        Why did you choose your current favorite Pokemon? Beedrill is one of my favourite pokemon of all, although admittedly when I was a kid I did not care for it nearly as much. Hell, I'm horrified of bees (and most insects/arachnids/creepy crawlies) to this day, but I love this little guy. I don't think I can even describe why. It just looks so badass, and quite frankly, when I saw the first episode they were in, I couldn't help but feel sorry for them. (Although watching them sleep while using their needles as a headrest like people would was amusing.) People like to villify Beedrill in fanfic because of it, or paint them as really super weak, but when you think about it, they were just defending their territory, like real animals.
                                        Which starter Pokemon is your favourite, and why? (Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle). Squirtle mang. Squirtle was my very first pokemon ever, (and according to the poll so far, I was the only one that saw him fit for use... T_T) and he was a favourite even before I played the game. Sure, Charizard is cool. But Squirtle was cute as all get out. Never underestimate the power of being as cute as all get out. I loved his baby face, I loved his swirly tail, I loved everything about him. Still do.
                                        What Pokémon did you see most prominently in your Pokémon Gen 1 play through? Do you like this Pokémon? I honestly can't remember, but I do remember as a kid being stuck in the Silph Co. tower, and I thought that I had to get past a Team Rocket member that was blocking a hallway. I remember him always saying when you talk to him "That reminds me! KOFFING evolves into WEEZING!" So I guess in a roundabout way, Koffing and Weezing were the pokemon I saw the most of. I like them a lot now... but back then they just annoyed me. I did like Koffing's voice in the anime, though. I also remember seeing a LOT of Gastly and Haunter, for some reason I remember level grinding on those suckers a lot. Unlike most of my generation it seems I bore absolutely no feelings of horror towards Lavender Town. Even when one of my schoolmates tried to toss playground urban legend creepypasta material as a kid, my response was to look at him like he was an idiot and go "yer outta yer mind dood". ...although now creepypasta DOES make me uncomfortable, so... irony?

                                        But I do love the Gastly line. A lot, they're good fun. Especially in their red and blue forms. When I was finally able to get myself a Gengar I was excited as hell.

                                          Hey guys, I decided I'm going to start making banners for The Gen 1 Pokemon Fan Club, but a bit more personalized than the original.
                                          If you want one, send me a message with your name and your favorite first gen Pokemon, and I'll make it like the first banner, but it will be a different color (you can decide, or it can be a color to go with the Pokemon's type), same words (The Gen 1 Pokemon Fan Club), and the sprite of your Pokemon with possibly your username, if it fits.
                                          Here is the original banner:

                                          Here is a personalized banner (mine):


                                          I didn't think of this until now, but here is a form for the banners:
                                          Name on banner (optional):
                                          Shorter name/Nickname (in case your full username doesn't fit):
                                          Pokemon on banner (only one or two):
                                          Color of background (optional, it will be colored to the type of Pokemon if you don't choose):
