Official Site.

I never really got Gold or Silver for some reason. I guess I'll look into these.

I was the only one in my school to buy Silver. By the time I gave away the game, I was missing about 21 pokemon, and I could only capture/evolve about 5 of them. Wonder what the new Silver will be like.

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I really hated not having an extra region to explore after Silver/Gold, I hope they make it even crazier or awesome-er.

So, do I wait for the inevitable third game or will it still be possible to get both legendaries w/o having to trade?

Haha... Well. I'm just going hope no. I'm not a big fan of Crystal... In fact, I'm just really burnt out on Pokemon. I got Platinum, thinking it would kinda refresh that, but it didn't. So I was all "Awesome! I <3 G/S!" But now I'm thinking "Wow! I can't believe I almost talked myself into buying another one of these god forsaken cash cows..."

And just think about it, you can run into the same 150 Rattata's, Pidgey's, and HootHoot's that you did the first time you played G/S.

The show in question, Pokemon Sunday, I'm hoping to god, is intended for very young children. Some horrible kids TV I've seen here (Disney Channel) has been just as over-excited, just with less odd costumes. Gawd I would've liked to see more than walking in a circle.
I already have a hate thread. Necromancy > redundancy here, so post there.

Amazingly enough, Rattata and Pidgey are both very high in my list of "MOST FAVRITIST POKMANZ EV4R", So hopefully these won't be filed with bullshit filler like "Bidoof", I hate that bitch.

Looking at the video: Meh!

I love Pokemon games, I got the original red and blue when they came out the first time. But there doesn't seem to be much in the way of innovation in the series.

The graphics could do with a major overhaul and I guarantee I can tell you the general gist of the story for any new Pokemon game way before it comes out :(

I want an actual NEW pokemon RPG game, not just an old one with a dash of paint.

I'd like a 3d Console one which uses Tales of- type battle systems.

Pokemon Gold and Silver were always my favorite Pokemon games, too bad the battery drained. If they keep similar music, I'll probably buy it for nostalgia.

Agreed, and yet they keep coming out with these and they keep getting snatched up. Its not like we could expect Wii to be able to handle a real live 3D pokemon, just arenas and minigames. Very upsetting.

So, having actually broken down and fired up some of these games in the last week or so....


Pokemon: Fantasy Battles. 40 vs 40 tactical wargaming. Give me a troop of rats to harass the enemy into my vise of whatever giant fucking horrible monsters I'm using to close the trap.

Someone make this happen.

So, what you want is Pokehammer? My unit of Rattata's all took the quick attack option, which gives them +2 initiative.

Not necessarily Pokehammer. I'll settle for Advance Warmon

I think I might purchase one of these for nostalgia reasons. I hope they don't clutter these with too many of the new pokemon, for two reasons. First, I think they'd detract from the nostalgia factor. Second, I think a lot of the newer ones are just objectively less creative. Now, maybe I'm wrong and I just dislike them because they're not the ones I remember, but at the very least they certainly have a different vibe than the older ones. They feel a lot less like animals.

Like, what are half of those supposed to be? And even the ones that clearly do relate to some real animal (or plant or whatever) just seem to have a totally different feel to them than the older ones do.

Awesome! 2nd generation was the best out of the four, in my opinion. Although I've never played 1st gen.

Also, I cheese-burned when those people were freaking out about the player walking in a circle.

I lost interest in the Pokémon games when the count of 'em broke 400. That's why these remakes are more interesting to me. Not that I'd be caught alive paying money for it, though.

Silver was the greatest of the pokemon games. I just loved the thrill of freaking out my friends by bringing out a lvl 90 Lugia that also happened to know Earthquake. Then the game battery died and I lost everything. I may need to keep my DS around just for this.

I gotta say, Gold version is my all-time favourite Pokemon game. It's also the first video game I ever owned. So when I heard about these remakes, I literally pulled a Lonely Island.

God, I hope someone gets that.

I jizzed in a box whilst on a boat with just two guys who happen to be my bing bong brothers when watching sports on a lazy sunday.

But, of course, this is a thread about Pokemon, not The Lonely Island.
