i haven’t completely finished pokemon yellow, but already my fingers are itching for the next game. sad to say, i’m also planning out my next time through pokemon red/blue/yellow (prob. going to go w/ red next time) using an entirely different team (well, except for geodude of course. he rulez). or maybe i should just skip to the upgraded version for game boy advance: pokemon fire red/leaf green? hmm. decisions … i’ll prob. just move on to the next pokemon game (gold/silver/crystal). ign has an updated chart on what monsters aren’t available in each game (although not updated for pokemon crystal, but that list can be found on wikipedia). it seems that the crystal version, like the yellow version, is a slight remake with some minor additional features, so of those three i’ll prob. go with that even though the completist in me tells me that for a more authentic experience i should go w/ one of the earlier ones (gold or silver) so that when i do go back and play crystal it’ll really feel like an upgrade. but realistically i’ll prob. play through the next series of games (ruby/sapphire/emerald and the forthcoming diamond/pearl) and the n64 games (pokemon stadium 1 and 2) and gamecube (pokemon colosseum which i already have lined up since i don’t have an n64 … yet) before going back and playing any of the other versions.
hmm. i think the above paragraph is proof that pokemania has hit hard. not quite hard enough for me to start buying figurines or anything, but i def. am planning on watching the first DVD at least.
anyway, while i’m at it here are a couple of pokemon links worth archiving:
