I fell off the Pokemon wagon yesterday. I restarted LeafGreen (had already transferred a load of Pokemon onto Diamond so it was pretty much blank). I wanted to go back to a simpler time when Pokemon number only a little more than a gross and legendaries weren't two a penny. I've also decided to just play a fun team with no "obvious" Pokemon. That means that when I have access to all the Pokemon of my optimal team it will not contain any starters, any legendary Pokemon, or any Pokemon that are clearly overpowered. The team I'm looking to put together is: Rapidash, Kingler, Dugtrio, Hypno, Dodrio and Parasect.
I dont like uising legendaries and the like either, it is much more satasfiying to win with a team of more original pokemon like Gliscor you raised from egg rather then be a noob and win with a Groudon. Anyone played Pokemon Snap, that was a game I would play all the time, I found it realy fun seeing them in a natureal setting and trying to uncover good pictures.

Also the show tended to be incorect at times, one instance at a break asking what pokemon evolves into Seviper, and their answer was Arbok, and I cant help but cringe when I watch the first movie and they say Alakazam's silhouette is Scyther.

I honestly adored the first movie.

Mewtwo was, IMO, the best developed villain seen in Pokemon. He had substance.

I think Dan Green (guy who did Yugi moto) did a wonderful job with Mewtwo's voice, he also did Lugia in number 2. Unfortantly the new kids to the series all think Lucario is the greatest, but Mewtwo was much better, he was a pinacle to how far you had come when you versed him in his totaly odd dungeon.

Oh, definitely.

the old school Pokemon was the best. Mewtwo as a villian rocked.

Clear motivations, built on them...

Ya know...he's the Aspie pokemon!

trouble around others because of his differences, very smart, trouble relating to others...

:D

I like Pokémon (yeah, I'm 22 :P ).

I was playing Pokémon Diamond and Platinum some months ago, but now I'm a little addicted to Metal Gear Online and I don't have time for my Pokémons :(

I'm waiting for Soul Silver and Heart Gold :D

Mewtwo has always been one of my favourite pokemon, since I have always felt able to relate to him. When I was about 7 I went through a period where I started to act like him :lol: That lasted a couple of weeks.

My favourite Pokemon are the original 151 Pokemon :D Charizard and Mewtwo Forever :lol:

I have been obsessed since I was 7. I recently made an IV calculator (that can take multiple levels like metalkid's) for my ti-89.

The series is fantastic. Other people my age ask WTF I'm doing, and the best explanation I can give is that if you look past the "kid's game" generalization, you're left with a good 8/16-bit era RPG. The same people who pan Pokémon are the ones who love Earthbound, Final Fantasy pre-FFVII, Dragon Warrior, etc. Makes no sense.

I also like to raise my own team. I bought Diamond and Platinum. Beat Diamond and set out to fill out the pokédex but didn't make it. Platinum I got halfway through or so and lost interest. Been playing them all since Red.

I also was a fan of the card game, not just collecting the cards. The classic Rain Dance deck never got old, and the Alakhazam / Chansey / Pokémon Center / annoy you to death deck was a joy as well. My deck box ended up stolen, but if anyone wants to buy a complete 1st edition set from Base Set through Gym Challenge ...

No Phantasy Star?
You poor poor person...

Monster Raising RPG games have different game mechanics though...


Also didn't even know people still played it...

Like them up to ruby/sapphire got a bit bored after that, but still good fun.

Dragon Quest Monsters has a better raising system though...

I'll admit it -- I was a Nintendo fanboy growing up. No Sega products.

That said, with the release of the Saturn (or more specifically, the fantastic Saturn titles to come out of Japan, such as the flawless XMvsSF translation) I started to come around. The Dreamcast was a highly underrated system, and I ended up spending something like 600 hours over four characters on Phantasy Star Online.

I never align myself to any company, I get what I want regardless of the console.

Also: Master System > NES

Ha Ha welcome back to the 1980s!
The cold war was not the only one on people's minds

I honestly like Eevee as a pokemon. Can be highly powerful if used and TM-ed right.

I was a fan of it back in the day, I played Red, Blue, Gold and Silver. While I have no future interest in the franchise, I did get 100 percent in Gold so I enjoyed Gold quite a bit.
