The first Pokemon games (Red/Blue/Yellow) were great but the other games to me just haven't been so good new new pokemon in them just didn't look so well designed to me. I got my first Pokemon game (Red) before I even knew about the cartoon I just got it and the gameboy because my friends played it and it looked cool I was about 15-16 then so I had the excuse of not knowing what Pokemon was. When I went to buy Gold though oh the shame! I walked in and out of the shop so many times, every time I walked out I thought "it's just a game why do I care what the people in the shop think" but every time I went back in and got close to the game I thought "This games aimed at kids I shouldn't even want it" eventually I just grit my teeth and bought it. I would never go into a shop and buy a game like that again now I'll either order it online or play the rom. Best Pokemon memory a friend skipped school for four days to raise his pokemon to fight me and I crushed him.
