no kids, not the garbage pokemon that they made. i mean, THE ORIGINAL. this goes back about 10 years. you guys remember when pokemon blue first came out? i know you all got it for christmas that year! cos i know i did. and i played it all night haha. and pokemon cards were the coolest thing ever. and EVERYONE had them in school, even the real popular kids. if you had a charizard, you were pretty much awesome. you sat for hours arranging your cards in a binder, just staring/reading each and every card. you pretty much had every fact about every pokemon memorized. YOU HAD LIKE 500 SLOWPOKES AND YOU HATED SLOWPOKE BECAUSE OF IT. you woke up at 5 am on school days to watch pokemon. you had a bunch of pokemon toys/stuffed animals. on christmas, if there werent 5 packs of pokemon cards in your stocking, you basically hated everything. when you found a "shiny" card you went completely insane. the number of holographic cards a person had defined how cool they were. you brought your gameboy color everywhere so you could level up your pikachu. you always wanted to evolve pikachu with a thunder stone, but dam game wouldnt let you! you snuck your gameboy into school to play, and the teacher never caught you. YOU SECRETLY STILL PLAY GAMEBOY COLOR SOMETIMES (i know i do). you could bust out your gameboy right now and play for 5 hours with no problem. im 17 now, and i can look back on this and it was such a fun time of my life. hah. so all you older people, do you remember these good old days?
Pokemon was so awesome before it diverged into new characters. ..
I remember having trouble fighting the Elite 4 in Blue version and I kept trying until I finally defeated them. THat was the shit!
