A girl I know was playing the new pokemon game, and that got me thinking about the good old days in Jr high when I used to play pokemon. I bought red version back in 7th grade ('99) and played it heavily until well into the gold-silver generation (I had gold and my friend had silver, though I don’t recall us trading much). I had a brief stint with pokemon sapphire in high school, but got burnt out because I felt it was losing its edge.
in my day we didn’t even have local wireless trading, let alone trading over the internet like on the DS. We had to get a link cable and to all sorts of things to make sure the two gameboys were communicating. Oh the times I had battling my brother.
Now I’ve got the fever again, but i have no videogame consoles. sigh.
So I’m wondering, what’s your favorite pokemon? Which version (of all the generations) is your favorite?
