    Choose which one you liked best! You may notice I didn't include Pokemon Puzzle Leauge or pokemon Puzzle challenge, and several others. This is because Puzzle Leauge/Challenge were Tetris Attack Clones, and did nothing original for the Pokemon name. Others such as Hey You Pikachu, Pokemon Dash, and Pokemon channel weren't included since they were so miserably bad.

    I myself vote for Pokemon Ranger, and most likely everyone else will choose Pokemon Snap. I liked Pokemon Snap A LOT, and played it until I had absolutely gorgeous pictures of each Pokemon. (specifically Goldeen. It's a perfect up close shot, and I got a perfect score for it.)

    However, I enjoyed Pokemon Ranger more. Hal did a good job on snap, and I loved it, but Hal did an even better job on Ranger, and it is ranked as the greatest Pokemon game in my book. To be honest, the only Pokemon RPG I liked was Red.

    What's your choice!

    Here's two of my really good pictures in snap. There's a trick I discovered to get a Pidgey image as good as that.

    I personally loved the hell out of Pokemon Pinball, original and RS version (especially with the ability to have rumble when playing with the Gameboy Player on the Gamecube). I never liked pinball prior to, but the Pokemon catching system made it so much fun. Especially when I caught Mew in the first Pinball.

    Hey! I was able to do that to! It a frickin hard procedure to set up though. I was never gonna try to get mew, but I already knew how to do it. Once I just managed to have an incredible play through, and I managed to set everything up! and I "caught" mew. I put caught in quotes since you never really "catch" it.

    Pinball almost got my vote, if not for the pure irritating levels it got to sometimes. I did git Jirachi and Mew, though. [​IMG]

    Ranger gets my vote.

    Pokemon Snap! no question. It was one of the only 3 games I ever owned for my N64 (I rented a lot), the other two being Mario 64 and Star Wars Podracer. I probably played Snap the most out of any console game I've ever owned.

    I'm going with Pokemon Snap.
    It was an original game - there was no other like it.
    It's very entertaining and it's replay value is excellent. [​IMG]

    The correct answer is Pokemon Snap.

    Pretty average shots...

    It's hard to get a decent shot of Goldeen. Trust me. It's also impossible to get a Pidgey shot that close unless you do some setting up.

    You say it like I haven't played the game. It really isn't as hard as you're making it out to be.

    Wish I knew where my cartridge was. Been feeling for some Snap action lately.

    When I say impossible, I don't mean it's hard. I mean that it literally isn't possible unless you do a certain thing first.

    I also had guessed that you had in fact played it, so I'm not trying to "fool" anyone.

    Wha? Why did you call me a punk? I said I KNEW you played it! Maybe I just worded it too complicated.

    I also didn't get the feeling I was exaggerating. I only said getting goldeen was hard. It's not like I said, "Oh GOD it was SO HARD!" Though maybe it was just hard for me cause I was fairly young when we got it. Can we just stop squabbling?

    YOU CANT BACK OUT OF THIS NOW.

    THE POKEMON-BRAND DUELING GLOVE HAS BEEN THROWN.





    In a more related note, I enjoyed Genki Dechu thoroughly. How can you call it "miserably bad"?

    Look.

    STOP TRYING TO PICK AN ARGUMENT!

    I'm not even going to answer to that because we will argue more, and I don't want that.

    It took me a while to figure out how to get the Pokemon sign near the Electabuzz.

    @VBKirby

    For god's sake lighten up.

    Did you get the pictures to show up in Oak's Report? Spent 20 minutes tweaking settings and they always come up blank. Found that by using "Copy to SDRAM" allows them to show up for the time, but I have to exit full screen and it runs incredibly slow while enabled.
