My son loves Pokémon (he's 9) and I get my education from him. That being said, amazing how long the games, card and merchandise just keep on moving along.

Starting with the re-releases is the best thing I think for anyone planning on catching them all. Less to worry about to start with and you can transfer them all to pokemon bank. Then go on to heart gold/ soul silver then gen 3 remakes followed by gen 4 and up.

Generation 4 Remake is definitely coming right after Sun and Moon. Early 2018 to be exact.
