Well, it's certainly a . . . technological leap, but I imagine that would just make it all the more rewarding to play.
And welcome to PC! If Red's still fresh in your mind, I'd recommend dropping by the Metal/Color games forum. A lot of members still recall their own Red version fondly. Otherwise, post around until you find something that interests you. The staff and most of the members here are more than willing to help you out if you're lost.
Haven't played Pokemon since Pokemon Red. True story. Also haven't had a Nintendo handheld since Gameboy Advanced.
Got Pokemon White with my 3DS.
That's... a pretty big jump! XD Did you get some 3DS games to go along with it too? I hope you did, cuz if you're like me you were pretty disappointed that B/W couldn't be played in 3D... ;-;
But that's awesome! What exactly made you decide to come back to Pokémon, do you know? Was there anything specific or... did you just pick up a 3DS and White randomly? XD Well, regardless, I'm glad you took the time to join the PokéCommunity! There's plenty of places for you to find your interests and settle into. For example, we have the Black/White forums but if that's not what you're interested in then we have plenty of other places to chat (like Other Chat! |D). Here's to hoping you stick around this time and get active with the community! And if you have any questions about the forums or the rules (which I highly suggest you read btw) don't be afraid to ask me and hopefully I can help clarify. :>
And I thought missing out Diamond and Pearl was considered sacrilege in the Pokemon world! That's impressive to say the least!
Welcome to PC, Maestar. Most of the members above have mentioned the Black/White as well as Metal/Color forums, but if you feel like taking a break from Pokemon, don't forget to check out the non-Pokemon forums. You never know, you might find something you really like! Enjoy!
