Happy 20 Years Pokemon


Moved to Elsewhere

674 views

Decided to make this blog to show tribute to my all time favorite video game series, Pokemon.

 

20 years this franchisee has ran showing no signs of stopping. I know I have fond memories of this game. I remember the first Pokemon game I owned: Pokemon Leafgreen. My sister got Firered on the same day I got mine and we both played. I remember on that play through over leveling my starter and anything else I caught was just an HM slave. Yeah, I was a stupid kid. However, I've gotten better at the games. I haven't been active a lot today because Pokemon Red, Blue and Yellow were re-released on the 3DS virtual console and I've been spending most of the day playing those. I'm already 2 badges in. These things get addicting.

 

Now I shall talk about the anime. It's been running for nearly as long as the games. I wouldn't exactly call it the master piece of writing. The characters don't exactly have a whole lot of personality, the jokes are cheesy, and the episodes get repetitive. However, I have a little bit of a bias towards it for nostalgic reasons. Plus, some of the jokes are hilariously bad. I don't know how the anime is doing now because I don't keep up with it.

 

And well I'm at it I might as well talk about Pokemon Sun and Moon since they were just announced. Little is known about it from the Direct. There were just snips of their development shown. I will say I like the titles for some reason. It's kind of weird that they're already jumping into a new generation without a 3rd version though. But whatever.

 

Happy 20 years Pokemon.

I stopped following playing Pokemon back in 03-05, so I know only of 1st generation of Pokemon, but thats it. The point is I appreciate what a huge part it had on my childhood  non of the less.
