Looking for general chat about Pokemon in all its versions! Classic Red, Blue, Yellow? Oh yeah. Pokemon Snap? Totes! Let's go, Pikachu/Eevee? Oh wow, what are we even doing with our lives? . . gimmee that Eevee! XD

I will go ahead and say that I'm pretty out of the loop on anything past Pokemon Crystal. I did start playing one after that but didn't make any significant progress before having to return it to it's owner. And now there are all the different gaming consoles so I don't even know what to do! Are there any good emulators online? Or is there a version that would be worth shelling out the money to go back and play?

Are there any Pokemon Go Players looking for new friends to gift and trade with?

I've only played the classic red version, and that was many many years ago. If I had the time, I would play it again! I remember spending so much time in Viridian Forest looking for a Pikachu. Laughing

I used to grind 5 levels per area and wouldn't leave until I had caught 1 of everything that lived in that area XD needless to say there was alot of time spent in the wild and then I would breeze through any challengers meaning it was back to grinding XD DERP! The only thing I never tried to catch was Missing No

I tried doing that too. I would actually look at a guide as I played, just so I wouldn't miss anything. But then I'd lose interest and not get very far.

I've never heard of Missing No before, so I googled it. That is awesome!

You might do better with a more free form version like Pokemon Go. You can play without much time spent grinding but it kinda sucks for the more rural crowd. Not really any stops outside of town and pokemon only spawn within a relative proximity to pokestops. But pretty fun seeing 3D versions of all the pokemon we saw growing up ^_^

Pokemon back in the day seems like it was more about training your favorites and using them consistently as a team throughout the story rather than the more current versions have gotten super tactical with all the new type additions, personality traits, and frienship levels. It feels like you have to breed the very best pokemon and create full on spreadsheets to get the most out of it (which is exactly what some people do). Not saying the story can't be played just for funsies the old way it's just that you'd only be utilizing about 50% of the gameplay. So daunting O_O

I don't think I'd have time for Pokemon Go, to be honest. Though it does look neat. I remember when it first came out. In my old neighborhood, there was a Dratini nest or something of that sort a few blocks from my house. I cannot tell you how many people were there, walking around the neighborhood. We lived next to an elementary school; there were more people walking around playing Pokemon Go than there were trick or treaters for Halloween. O.o And some people were driving while playing. @.@

After you get past the initial overload of MUSTCATCHEVERYTHINGINSIGHT it's not to hard to manage. Pop open when you have a minute to burn catch a thing, spin at a stop, do a task to get a daily stamp (doesn't even have to be consecutive days Heart ). I usually only play on days when I have work because they make us park in a garage that is .80 mi away. Might as well make use of the time and distance, am I right? But yeah, the people that play & drive both irritate me and scare the crap out of me >_< People have gotten better about it but you still see it commonly. Community days are pretty fun too if you have some friends that play and you find a good place to wander in for a few hours :3

Sorry I didn't find this message for a while. After it disappeared off the front page and things got crazy at work I couldn't remember how to find it XD Derp! On another note I started playing Pokemon Emerald :3 It feels good to get back into the real pokemon world but I also feel like a total newb again ^_^;; I swear they changed up how types work and I keep forgetting things like ghost type moves don't do jack towards dark types. This is going to be a long journey me thinks. . .

I play Pokemon Go while driving! Well, I am usually on a bus or train trying to hit up random poke stops that is. XD

It's actually the first time I've ever, and I mean EVER played a Pokemon game in my life. I've played Moon on my 3DS and I have Ultra Sun to play...I just need to find my 3DS. I also have a couple of older games that I have codes for...again, I need to find my 3DS to play them. thunk

Hey it still counts XD You probably see all sorts of pokemon throughout your ride! Have you tried out the new battle feature yet?

Yeah, I wanted to get some of the newer games but I just can't justify the price for a game I wouldn't have time to play (and the really cheap ones are sketchy fakes that may or may not work . . <_<). Ultimately I ended up putting a free emulator on my tablet and loaded up Emerald. I kinda suck at it XD I keep forgetting which moves are good against what type and these new (to me) pokemon that I don't even know what type they are >_< I keep using moves that actually have NO EFFECT and I do it repeatedly!! *puts on dunce cap* I haven't been able to play for a few months because of the holidays though. :/

I was about...5-6 hours north of one of my girlfriends who we've built up to a high friendship with gifts, and we were both doing nothing and so we had a battle. It was interesting for a first go. Yes

I only logged into Pogo today. First time since I got back on the 2nd.

My main issue when it comes to traveling and trying to catch them, is if a pokemon you haven't caught before is in the general area, it'll show up top of the list of pokemon nearby...even if the actual pokestop it is near...is 3km away from you and not in the same direction or anywhere near your public transport route. thunk

I think come the weekend, I will go hunting for my 3DS so I can play it on the way in or out from uni on the train, although, I have no objections to just sitting there and staring out the window either. Laughing

That does seem like one of the few benefits to the battles. Actually being able to play with far away friends without spoofing/cheating.

I was just wondering about that the other day. It said there was something I hadn't seen before but I was standing right next to the only stop for a ways. I guess they are really trying to get us to walk those extra km!

Any luck finding your 3DS?

I haven't gone looking yet. It's only just Saturday now for me. Laughing

But I do have some work I need to get done before I go looking for anything.

Saturday already?! Its barely afternoon on Friday for me. It always amazes me how half of the world exists in a different day @_@ But on the plus side that means you get to do the Pokemon Go Community day today ^_^ good luck on the shiny catching! And I hope you get all your work done so you can enjoy your weekend Yes

At the time it had just kicked over to Saturday. And I probably won't participate in the community day. Don't really have time (or the patience) to sit around down town and catch whatever the pokemon of the day is. =/

It was just the starter pokemon Totodile. Shiny version was green colored. Yeah, it's more fun when you can actually go with friends. I had to work during most of it but I did manage to hop on for about 15 minutes and caught 2-3 that were shiny. I will probably trade them all to my boyfriend since his favorite color is green XD

It has really become more of a passive game for me. Something to do on the 10 minute walk from the parking garage to the store and then back again afterwards.
