Pokémon

Recommended Posts

So, Pokémon eh? Everyone has an opinion on it, what's yours? Heres mine:

Animé: Good, Orange Islands sucked Hoenn is good though

Gameboy games: I grew up with these games, they helped nuture my videogame obsessed childhood

GBA games: A great step forward in Pokemon especially with FR/LG

Cube games: Collosseum sucked. End of.

DS games: I don't know what Diamond & Pearl will be like yet...hopefully good

Movies: There are way too many, and yet I love them all.

Anime: Technically crap, but the thoroughly entertaining kind of crap that you have to be HARDCORE~! to like ( :shifty: ). I've had long and indepth conversations about the plot of Pokémon, so that's got to be a good thing.

Gameboy games: Frikkin' awesome. I bought a Gameboy Colour entirely for the purposes of Pokémon, and have never bought another game since.

GBA games: Good, but I've never been able to get into the new Pokémon after the original 151, so I haven't really taken it to heart.

Cube games: Not played.

DS games: Not played.

Movies: Only seen the first one. Responsible for the cheesiest thing I have EVER seen from an animated movie (pokémon tears = magical healing), and that's saying something. Still, gave me some good laughs...intentionally or not.

:o

That pretty much exactly how I feel on the subject. Except I agree with TEW that Collosseum was horrible, and it was a Gameboy Pocket that was given to me for Christmas. But I requested it, and eventually ugraded to a colour, so it's the same thing :P

Anime: I watched the series until after Ash obtained the original set of badges, and then just kind of quit. It wasn't all that great, if my memory serves me correctly.

Gameboy Games: Excellent. My fondest memory of them was having my parents buy me Gold and Silver with a GBC for Christmas, and then playing it without turning it off once until the batteries died.

Gameboy Advance Games: I love the fact that they're better looking than ever and have a lot more depth and features and whatnot than they did on the Gameboy Color, but similarly to Stokerino, I never fully acknowledged the new Pokemon after G/S/C.

'Cube Games: Haven't gotten to play them yet, but I really want to give that one a go, the one that's similar to the N64 games.

DS Games: I guess they'll be good. I haven't even so much as seen a DS yet though. <_<

Movies: I watched the first one, but that's it. Looking back, my fondest memory was the card (Mewtwo, IIRC) that came with your ticket purchase (if you were obsessed enough to get there in time), as I was a hardcore TCG fan. Not now, as nobody else plays it. I still play the TCG for GBC, though.

My friend gave me a GBA like 3 weeks ago and for some reason teh first game I wanted to get was Pokemon and now I'm hooked on it. I got the leaf green version if anyone cares.

I was pretty irritated that they kept making sequels without even hinting at the possibility of one in the previous version. Once you beat the Elite Four in Red/Blue, that was pretty much all she wrote, and now look at how many sequels there are.

I think the cartoon is pretty cute. Never played the games. I need something fun. Are they worth it?

Yeah, it's more fun having a friend to play against though, I wouldn't say it's worth buying a console specifically for them, but if you have the cash and the console then go for it.

Well, recently I . . . . . obtained a GBA and completed Pokemon Red so moved on to Gold. So far I've got all 8 badges, and am moving on to face the Elite Crew (much better name), in the tunnel on the way there I came accross a waterfall for the first time, so I though that would be the perfect time to teach one of my pokemon the Waterfall HM. BUT, I was shockd to find, that NONE of my pokemon could learn it. So, basically, I'm totally screwed.

Animé: I ised to love it when I was little, but I haven't seen it in a long time.

Gameboy games: I bought Blue and Red, and I downloaded all the others. The games are always strangely enjoyable.

GBA games: Great, too.

Cube games: Don't own a Cube, so I've never played 'em

DS games: Don't know.

Movies: Never watched any, except for this one pokemon movie that was in the cinema. I can't remember what it was called, though.

I get concerned when people say that they loved Pokemon "when they were little". I was first into it in Year 10, that was only 5 years ago... :pinch:

They mention Red in Gold/Silver/Crystal. He is the final boss.

The fact that they kept saying there was only 150/1 pokemon, then suddenly discovering an extra 200 (or whatever) was quite odd.

Especially as most of these "newly discovered pokemon" appeared more often than the first 150.

Animé: I liked it when it was on SM:TV. The main thing I hate is that it gets way too repetitive. Team Rocket genuinely annoyed me.

Gameboy games: Very addictive, yet simple. Which makes it a great portable game, like Tetris was before it.

GBA games: I like the SNES-like RPG graphics. All the new stuff kicked ass.

Cube games: Disappointing...

DS games: Looking good.

Movies: Sucked. It was just like a back to back episode of Pokemon, what's the point?

Merchandise and piss-poor spin-off games: What made Pokemon gay.

I like that little blue guy that just screams his name over and over again in different tones of voice.

Pokemon Blue (for GB Color) is probably one of the only RPG's I have ever actually gotten absorbed in, beaten, and loved. That game was amazing. I still have fond memories of my Ghastly pounding everyone elses Pokemon (including a Mewto) at school. That game was the shit. Beating Brock's Rock Pokemon with Pigdey just sandblasting everyone until I was almost never hit, then just gusting them like 25 times was sweet.

All the blue Pokémon...? At a guess I'd say you mean Squirtle seeing as he was one of the main ones in the original series.

Didn't all the pokemon scream their names in differant tones of voice in the cartoon series?

Exactly, which is the reason for the "...?" because she said it was blue. Some just made weird grunts and a few could talk psychically IIRC.

I only remember Meowth talking properley from the original series? Bwahaha, memories of how he actually learned to speak and I haven't seen that episode in maybe 4 years or possible more.

Overall, I liked the series in Johto (or whatever the first area was called) However, I just lost interest when they added loads more pokemon. The games are decent... But I just wish they gave different storylines to each game, because the only different thing was the pokémon in each. Everything else basically sucked.

Today marks the 10th Anniversary of Pokémon. 10 Years ago today, trainers in Japan had just started to play through Pokémon Red & Pokémon Green, with their trusty starters, Bulbasaur, Charmander & Squirtle,they went through the land of Kanto and got the 8 badges, thwarting Team Rocket at every turn. Now 10 years on, there's almost 3 times as many Pokémon, many new regions, new adventures.
As celebration, I've pulled out the old copy of Blue and am having a blast, Charmander 4 Lyfe yo'.

I wanted to play pokémon Sapphire last week but after getting my GBASP back from my sisters' house, I turned it on to find out it was broke. So I got the old GB Color out and have started a new game on Crystal.
