    Whaaa! I loved gen 3! It was one of my favourite gens!

    In none of my pokemon games have I ever filled the entire dex though. I have a strong thing against hacks/ clones and I wont use the GTS because I dont want a hack. I feel it really just.. defeats the purpose of trying to "catch them all" for me.. especially if you can ask a friend to put in some numbers and trade over some "legendary" pokemon.

    So anyone I trade with, I have to ask if it's legit, and I will ask them to nickname it for me as a little personal touch from them :3

    In the original red I got up to 147 though!! And in my pearl I got legit manaphy and phione and was so happy :3

    Which gen is your favorite Kura?

    And yea I know the hack/clone stuff is pretty controversial for Pokefans so I tend to stay out of it. I just play with my own set of rules and don't force anyone to follow/adhere to them haha.

    I've never been close to completing a dex; it's too much work but I commend you for being that close in Red hahaha

    Haha yes.

    I don't think I've ever completed a dex. My friend filled the entire Sinnoh Pokedex without hacks. He did use GTS and I helped him out with trade-backs, though. I planned on finishing mine but ehh I'd rather be planning my team.

    Yes finally. I have half of my team ready, aside from details on Shaymin.

    I was close to completing a dex twice but I lost my first Silver and accidentally restarted my Ruby when I was close. it was really depressing. :(

      Probably gen 2. It was so exciting when it came out. It was also paced really nicely so it felt really long; and like two games in one! I remember when the pokemon all got announced and I was one of the few at school that knew about serebii and finding screens of them and just yeah. Maybe that's the nostalgia talking but.. I just really enjoyed it as a game. It had a lot of pokemon variation, and IMO, a great map. Finding those legendary dogs really felt legendary! I remember I only ever caught Raikou but it instantly became a favourite! Gen 2 designs are probably my favourite as a whole!

      I also loved yellow version a lot! I think I had the most pokemon in Pearl, and I know it had more pokemon overall, but I also traded the most with it, and breeded the most with it. It had my favourite boxes which I organize by type and I set the background to the appropriate theme for them too.

      Gosh I really like customizing haha!

      I've only ever played the Gen II remakes, but I liked catching the dogs as well. I remember spazzing out when I encountered the first one (Entei). Then I was hit with a combination of excitement and devistation when it fled. x:

        Haha I remember some people back then who thought that when it fled, it was gone forever, and one that got frustrated that he lost it and never played the game after that. When I told him that it wasn't the case he was like "DAMN!!" haha! Awhh poor soul!

        Haha, poor guy. I've never been a huge fan of the legendary dog trio, aside from the excitement of when I first encountered Raikou. When I forgot and reset my game before catching Suicine, I was mostly annoyed that I couldn't SR for a shiny one. x:

          I don't know what SR is but.. to me? It makes it more special if the shiny was truly random. Like winnng the lottery! Some people shiny hunt but I dunno why.. I guess I just never bothered.
          I remember I was playing Gold on my gameboy pocket, and I was doing the bug catching game, and caught a venonat while not really paying attention (was also watching tv,) and I was angry afterwards that I couldn't get a scyther or pinsir.
          Then when I put it on my bro's gameboy colour, I spazzed out that it had sparkles and was a different colour; I remember it so clearly!! Was in the spare room where the N64 was hooked up and I just flipped and ran to show my brother hahaha!

          Ahh memories..

          How do you even..

          I remember when I was going to SR for a shiny Piplup in Platinum. I decided not to in the end. I started Platinum and after I got Piplup, I restarted because it had a bad nature and IVs. The next time it was shiny. I made 'noises' that night.

            Looks like the Anime/Manga discussion got merged with General Entertainment.

            Efficient, I suppose.

            My first shiny was a flipping Bidoof on Diamond version. I:
            I didn't even know what a big deal they are, but had faintly remembered that it's "special" in some way. Then forgot and reset the save file. I still have my first SR'd shiny (and cloned him once) sitting in my PC box, though. (:

            Kura, if I understood your post correctly, you said that you don't know what SR'ing is, right? It's when you, before either getting a starter or encountering a legendary (or something like a Drifloon that is seen out-of-battle), save the game. Then encounter said Pokemon over and over again (resetting the game by pressing start + select + L + R if it's not shiny) until you get a shiny one. I got a shiny Chikorita that way. <3

            Huh. Now I want to go SR for a shiny Drifloon. I've always loved the coloration but never bothered to get one. I think it works for SRing, not sure.

            My first shiny ever was a Machoke by Snowpoint City in Diamond. My second shiny was in Pokemon White's Victory Road and it was a Deino.

            Ahaha, I guess green shinies are your thing? X)

            Even before getting a Gen V game, I loved Deino and its evolution line. That kind of has faded since. x:

            It really does seem like it. I have high hopes for Gen VI!

            Hahaha we'll see. I've only ever found those two in the wild. My other shinies were traded for and Red Gyarados never counts haha

            My most recent shiny is my Ambipom named Strawberry in Platinum. She is a Goddess amongst us mortals.
