Well. Now we know how nintendo is planning to milk more money out of the franchise to get the original pokemon into Ruby and Sapphire. Ive already bought the original Pkmn twice, ill have to wait to see how they do it until i decide. Since its a potential trip down memory lane, im still leaving a small consideration of buying it.
Thanks to Captain Cornflake for the redesign, originally Pipking's. Rules don't hurt, but mods make sure disobeying them does.|Adopted imstarbright
eh, pokemon was a one time thing, it was popular when i was in 4th and 5th grade and then died out, lol i still have all my pokemon cards and games. but the pokemon trading card game was pretty cool when you actually think about it and actually play it right.
The games were good for a time, but after Gold/Silver, they sort of lost their touch. They have tried to add in all these new features, but none of them actually have any real use in the game. Your coolness will not make you beat the Elite Four any more easily.
A full-on Gamecube version would be awesome, but it doesn't seem like it's going to happen.
Pokémon has gone down hill since yellow. I think that the original idea was great but they can't take the franchise to th end of the earth. It is only expected that they would remake Ruby and Sahpire though, they have with all the other versions.
Ruby and Sapphire weree ok, but they made things a little too complicated. Just too many useless things; ie beauty contests. G&S were definately the top, but I liked Crystal too, the option of playing as a girl is really the only difference I liked though.
You have to wonder though, if there will be a 3rd game in the R&S saga. Think about it:
Blue~Red released together----then Yellow
Gold~Silver released together--then Crystal
Ruby~Sapphire released together---??? Diamond perhaps?
I dunno, its just speculation.
Does anybody belive that these games will be any decent? It could go either way IMO. Are they still making a 3D Pokemon RPG on the GCN? I don't think that would suit the series at all . Still it might be good.
The original pokemon games were awesome, sure they aren't as good anymore but they are still worth a play (mostly). The TGC on the GB wasn't too shabby.
Apparently you're wrong, ZF*. My girlfriend still loves Pikachu, I mean she adores the damn thing, as do a million other crazed fan girls in Japan. Although the craze has relatively died down, one person can't speak for everyone, some people still enjoy the games, your opinion can't be forced on all living beings.
I admit, I don't love the games that much anymore, however I do enjoy the occasional play through of Gold/Silver.
I think some people are just biased or still into the Pokemon are for Babies thing. I still think Pokemon's a good game, the problem was when they took the merchandising too far. As of now, things have toned down and are all good. I'd like to see a remake of Pokemon Blue (which is what it will be in the US, Japan has green, they get green leaf, US has blue, we get Blue water). I wanna raise a Bulbasaur that can learn Synthesis and Sunny Day and stuff (I'm not too keen on all of the R+S attacks, so I'll use G+S for examples).
