    Am I the only one waiting for this game? Playing versus people around the world allows for major competitions, I can't wait! Japanese will have to do for now I guess.. Typing this reminds me of that Blink song.. "What's my age again?" ..

    I'm 23 and I am looking forwards to it I guess, I played the blue one ages ago, as I had to go on a long flight so bought it.

    Whether or not these new ones will keep me entertained remains to be seen.

    Check how active the board is over at GameFAQs and you'll know [​IMG]

    A countdown event's taking place early morning on launch day although I'm sure the games will be dumped say the night before or something >.>

    Heck, I'm over 40 and anxiously awaiting this one. I competed in the pokemon JAA tournament they had in the US earlier this year and you would be surprised at the number of older players that were into it, almost enough where they should have had a senior bracket so I would have had a better chance at winning [​IMG] Pokemon emphasizes strategy and tactics over reflexes so it's good match for us over the hill guys. My twitch days of getting high scores on asteroids and space invaders in the arcades is long gone.

    Honestly, the pokemon series is a good game, what turned it into a "Kiddy thing" is mainly (If not ONLY) the anime. Remove that, and you'll see pokemon as a totally normal RPG with a nice storyline and good gameplay =/ Seriously, i like this serie, but i hate the anime with a burning passion. It's the same with dragonball, the anime serie messed it all, made everyone look like a bunch of retards. It's simply called "Milking a franchise". At some ppoint, they noticed the anime or game was popular (I honestly don't remember which came first, sorry) and decided to make the other, one was popular, the other murdered the serie for most people because it made everything look like it was 6 and under.

    It's nice to hear some replies (except for the first few, I'm 19). But I completely agree with that statement. It wouldn't be as populair with the small kids if it didn't come along with the trading cards and retarded series.. Guess we'll just have to avoid that.

    Exactly my point [​IMG] Avoid the retardation that is the anime and the card game and you have an awesome RPG-type of game.

    I think there are like ~420 pokemon this time around. I missed everything after the Silver/Gold version. I heard that it won't be until Spring '07, the American release.. Sucks hard but I'm gonna play it to death regardless of the language [​IMG]

    I got the Gameshack to get Mew, turns out there is a way to get him which does involve the MissingNo thing. Called the 'Mew Glitch' if you google it. Anyways I believe Celebi and Mew were catchable in pokemon emerald. Those legendary dogs kicked ass, don't know how I'm gonna get them now..
