I actually have tears in my eyes…
Wow… yeah, I got pokemon red around when it was released… it was just a magical game. So much fun, so many batteries spent, hehe.
Been a while >< Pokemon Red was the first RPG I ever owned, this hit me right there, inside, in the liver :P
I have all of the feels right now. A shiver went up my spine when you quoted the theme song at the end.
I actually did have all 150 pokémon at the same time; When my sister got the Blue version, I convinced her to let me borrow it for a day before she started her game, then I caught a bunch of rattatas and Pidgeys, started a new game on Her Blue cart, traded the starting pokémon for one of those throwaway pokémon, and then started a new game; i repeated this until I had 6 of each starting pokémon, then traded her back 3 of each, so both of us started out with 3 charmanders, 3 squirtles, and 3 bulbasaurs. The only pokémon I never got were Mew and MissingNo.
Unfortunately, I think I traded away my copy of the Red version. :(
I really liked this. Thank you
Ah, Pokémon. Such fond memories… Blue Version was the first game I ever owned. Sure, I had played Mario before, and my mom had a Game Gear that I borrowed, but Pokémon was the first that was ever really mine. I got it on my seventh birthday with a purple Game Boy Color, and my brother got Red with a green one. They were the only gifts we received that year, but we didn’t mind; we loved those games. And now, over thirteen years later, we’re still playing Pokémon. They might not be the best games around, but we still love them for the countless hours of entertainment they’ve brought us.
Thank you, JewWario, for sharing this video with us.
Pokemon definitely holds some very pleasant and nostalgic memories for me as well. My first games were Pokemon Red and Yellow while my younger sister’s was Pokemon Blue. We never did catch all of them, but we definitely had fun trading and trying to prepare for tournaments.
