Silver and Emerald are both great titles!! If I had to choose between the two, I'd go with Emerald, I think. I think there's a lowkey sadness with me and Silver because I lost my copy a long time ago and I never quite got over it hahah.
Also - Yamper is definitely one of my favorite new Pokémon to be revealed so far!! Its animations are adorb.
It carries electrically roasted seeds with it as if they're precious treasures. No matter how much it eats, it always gets hungry again in short order.
I think Silver is one of my favorites (if not my actual favorite!) Pokemon game. I just love the second generation so much! But, the Pokemon shown so far for SWSH are really adorable and awesome looking so I might have a new favorite in the future! Ahh, I don't know, I can't decide. But Yamper is most definitely a great little doggo. :')
