    I just realized how awesome Pokemon Snap would be in HD.

    Nice retrospective! Even though I've always known about Pokémon Green, it's one of those things you, paradoxically, quickly forget about too. I still have one of those Pokémon Pikachu things as well, but I think I spent more time shaking it than actually partaking in any excercise. Glad the PokéWalker fixed that "exploit"! Also...I don't see Pokédex 3D on here. But it's no more a game than Box was. Also I knew a friend with Channel; we watched the Pichu Bros short, downloaded Jirachi...and that's... literally it.

    I got Pokemon Blue when it first came out, and everyone made fun of me because, well, I was the kid with Blue version when obviously (sarcasm) Red was the supreme game. Took them a while to realize that I alone was their only hope in becoming Pokemon Masters... Suckers... I still love my Blue Version, and I give a run through at least once a year. No other Pokemon game gives me the same feeling, I do love them all equally. My favourite moment of any Pokemon game (maybe all of gaming) was when I first traded via link cable, Blue to Red. I never got a link cable, and when I finally befriended someone with it, it changed everything. Now, Pokemon Snap is basically my crack. I can sit and play that game for days... Literally... Not my proudest moment, sure, but dammit that game is amazing. I bought a used N64 just for Pokemon Snap. There had better be a sequel in the works, that would probably be a selling point for whatever console it comes out on, seriously, I love that game so much.

    I didn't play any pokemon games until about 2004 or 2005 because up to that point, I saw friends play and I thought that it was just walking in grass and battling, but then I decided to borrow my friend's pokemon sapphire, at which point i fell in love with the games, and eventually bought emerald, firered, silver, diamond, blue rescue team, ranger

    Did you forget the movies on purpose since this was a Pokemon game based post only or did you just forget them?

    Well, seeing as the article is called "Pockets and monsters - The History of Pokemon GAMES"... I mean, come on man...

    I remember that when I first got my Blue Version, I didn't know how to save the game, despite the option being right there on the menu! I would always be afraid to turn my game off, because I knew I'd have to start over. Eventually, my dad played my game once, starting with a Bulbasaur, and taught me how to save. And that is the story of how Bulbasuar, Venusaur, and the entire Grass Type, became some of my favorite things about Pokemon.

    My first memory of playing Pokemon would be when I got Pokemon Blue for Christmas of 98. I remember being pretty disappointed that they didn't say their names like they did in the anime. Still love/d the game though.
