Gi - I was there for the original 151. I bought a Game Boy Color just so that I could get Pokémon. I have finished at least one game in every generation. While I have fond memories of Red/Blue/Yellow, I do not partake of the “Gen I/II was the best” nostalgia bandwagon, and can honestly say that I have always looked forward for more Pokémon, and I will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. For a different take on the amount of Pokémon, read There Are Entirely Too Many Pokémon.
