    Or do you only play the new games? I recently bought a copy of Pokémon Leaf Green and have been playing it occasionally in the last week. I tend to go back to Gen 3 and 4 quite often when I feel like playing a Pokémon game again, since they are my favourite Gens in the series.

        Currently in the middle of a B2W2 playthrough, so yes! I think revisiting older games can be fun sometimes, especially if it's a game that you haven't played in a good long while. One of the thing on my to-do list is to replay Crystal too, but that's a long way off. :x

            I've recently started a new playthrough of Black, I didn't realize how much I've missed it. I also found my old Fire Red cartridge so I may give that a go sometime in the near future.

            Yep, pretty often honestly. I still play Platinum from time to time, and I just finished playing through FRLG and BW! Not sure how likely I am to go back to anything before Gen 3, but anything after that I still play fairly regularly.

            I do! I adore replaying older games, it never gets any less fun regardless of how many times I do it. :3c Currently replaying White 2, and still have to continue off with my monocolor run in Ruby.

            Pokémon Blue comes out to play from time to time. It will always have a special place in my heart.

              I still consistently play pokemon crystal, emerald, black, and pearl to this very day. I still bring my gameboy with me to school with my copy of crystal, and a ds lite with me to school every day, and I I find myself starting new games every week or two, because I complete them in that span of time (except emerald and crystal, because I literally NEVER get bored of those two, considering I had an old 400hr save on those two).

              yeah, i love older games. i've actually become more fond of gen II games in recent years (i mean i already really liked them but i like them even MORE now for some reason?) and i love to replay them when i get the urge. usually just depends on what i'm feelin. like you know when you get a craving for food and you just gotta go get it like that's how it is w pokemon games for me. sometimes i just want too much water 7/10

              I go back to HeartGold every once and a while, and at some point I'd like to go through the 5th gen games again, because I don't think I appreciated how good they were the first time around. I go back to the gen 3 games every once and a while too, but find it hard go get back into anything earlier than that.

                  I may have overplayed Leaf Green a bit, but I still can't get enough of Emerald, Platinum, Black 2, and to a lesser extent Soul Silver.

                  I have. I played HGSS a bunch and probably will go back to that. Played Crystal on the VC on 3DS as well.

                  Think at some stage I will replay B2W2 with a grass monotype run and try out the hard mode, one way or another.

                  Always.

                  I mean no offence to the Pokémon Games on the 3DS.
                  But, everything beforehand, GB - DS are better in my opinion.
                  So, I'm always going back!
