It’s strange to think about just how long Pokemon has been part of the gaming community. With the release of X and Y it will be the 6th generation of Pokemon, 15 years since the American release of Blue and Red version, and there will be likely over 700 Pokemon to collect throughout the games. For some of us, including myself, Pokemon is just part of their life. Every time a new game comes out they purchase it, put countless hours into completing 100% of the game, and then wait for the next stellar installment. Obviously, favorite games are developed along the way, and inspiration may hit at some point to go back and play a classic, but for the most part the cycle will continue. However, for some reason, there is a new feeling with the incoming release of Pokemon X and Y.
