It feels like only yesterday when I was playing Pokemon Blue and spending $500+ on Pokemon cards.

I remember getting a Charizard for the first time, my head almost exploded.

Head nearly exploded?

I remember when i was on my way to Toys r Us about to pick up Pokemon Red for my birthday. Was in the car saying to myself "im about to begin my journey as a pokemon trainer!"....then i walked out with a bike instead >_>

But still got Red a few weeks later. Loved it too. Wish i had a DS

butterfinger5598d ago

21 years old, 22 on April 8th, and yes...

I still play Pokemon. It's a great game.

Though I haven't collected the cards since 5th grade. Maybe this summer I'll buy a box of the first booster set like I did with my Star Wars CCG sets a few years ago

If any of you are on the fence on Platinum and haven't played one of the entrys before, buy it.

hahahah I did almost the same thing, only I played pokemon red. Charizard always look cooler than that big blue tortoise. lol I don't remember their names anymore. Was really cool though and addictive.

I remember playing Blue, Red, Yellow, Gold & Sliver and I had TONS of cards…but after that I just stopped.

So I will admit that I picked up Platinum today…and I like it a lot.

I remember playing pokemon gold, in my opinion the best pokemon game ever ahhh the good old days

El_Colombiano5598d ago

It was the best. Two regions, 16 badges. All the Pokemon felt original and natural. What's there to hate?

The real-time day/night cycle in Gold and Silver was the most amazing thing ever to me for some reason. Still amuses me in Platinum...

Kappa Mikey5598d ago
