    I’ll always choose squirtle and give him the black shades to hold. Otherwise he won’t be as cool as the one from the cartoon.

      Except that if your pokemon are able to hold items, you’re clearly not playing the original.

        Alas, my original has no more life in it. So I’m forced to use firered.

    My favorite starter will always be Piplup now.

    I mean seriously, a starter that turns into a Steel subtype? Holy shit yes, sign me up.

    Bulbasaur – Easy mode. Who needs skill when you can Grass-whip two entire gyms?
    Squirtle – Normal mode. Sure, you can coast through Pewter, but you have some growing to do to keep up the pace.
    Charmander – Hard mode. Can’t burn Rock or Water, so you gotta WORK for those victories. But play it right, and you get a Flying/Fire type that can learn Dig and wipe out the entire Cinnabar Gym in one go. ^_^

    Ah, memories.

      You can burn Rock and Water if you grind enough. :P

      I used to walk out of the forest with Charmeleon, while Misty got to deal with Charizard.

    Mudkip has always been my favorite.

    On another note, anyone playing Pokemon Conquest? I’m thoroughly enjoying it.

      I would have gotten it in a heartbeat, but alas, my poor DS and DSLite are far too damaged to play the game.

    I agree, but, B&W is a rebirth and a new beginning
