    Hey guys
    I recently found my VHS collection and I came across my pokemon season 1 collection, I watched a few episodes then nostalgia hit me..I download a few of the movies, watched then and then I spend almost a hundred bucks and I bought most of the gbc/gba/ds games from amazon , I started all the games but I realized I don't have time to play them, They are really addictive you know :-/.. Plus that I live in a small town in the middle of no where and nobody knows of pokemon here so I'm left alone , I really wanna play all these games but I feel like I have no body to show if I caught a rare pokemon or something...

    Can some one give me some advice ..please ?

    You can play wi-fi on the DS games.

    You need a second DS, than you can trade Pokémon with yourself.

    Don't worry, a lot of people do that.

    I get back into pokemon games every now and then, usually when a new one comes out, but the only way for me to stop wanting to play is to play them until I get tired off them again.

    I thought I too would never get rid of Pokemon addiction. But I just kept playing those games, not even online because online is worthless IMHO and eventually the addiction went. I can safely say I'm completely free of Pokemon addiction [​IMG] I haven't even tried Pokemon Black/White. I have no urge to play what Pokemon game whatsoever.

    So my suggestion, just overdose on Pokemon games and you'll get tired of it in time [​IMG]

    Yes, that works, but usually just for a year or so.

    Then your Pokémon will appear in your dreams: What's up? Why don't you play with us? Transfer us to this new game, plsseee.

    A town where no one has heard of Pokemon? What are you, Amish?

    satangel's suggestion is maybe a bit weird but it's the only known antidote so far [​IMG]
