I caved and bought UM. A certain aspect of the new story made me decide to get it.

I gave my mom my old copy of Moon and started her a name game after I transferred my pokemon over via the bank. I hope she gets into it. She loved Animal Crossing and the Wii Harvest Moon Animal Parade. I tried Story of Seasons and she didn't get into this. I want another game we can play together, but she gets frustrated easily. I have a feeling this one won't fly with her either.

I enjoyed Moon a bit, but it felt different than other Pokemon games. Maybe it's because it is vastly different than what I grew up with.

I cannot see what they came up with in the Switch. I hope it's compatible with the Pokemon bank.

That was my favorite of that gen!  I'm definitely buying it!  I hope it comes with a background code, too.  That would be pretty!

If I can keep my spending this week under budget I'll reward myself with Crystal or Silver, I can't decide!
I won't be getting Ultra anything, because the event Pokemon will still be able to be redeemed on SM. I'll just sit and wait for the switch version... :awake:

I picked up a Nintendo cash card so I can get it on my 2DS so I can trade back and forth with Silver. :)

At Rusted and Pokey: Who are you choosing for your starter? I'm going with Cyndaquil.

Probably going with Cyndaquil, but I do really like Chicorita's evolutions.
I figure I'll probably want a firetype early on, as you tend to be able to get grass types before fires anyway.

I remember getting Growlithe early. If you can catch em before they run away. Little boogers. That was one of my more frustrating game moments. XD

Chikorita was my first gen 2 starter. Sorry. I personally didn't like it.

The final evolution does look goofy to me because it looks like it's just a bald dinosaur.  :silly: I wish she had some sort of crest.

It's not the look of the Chikorita line that bugs me. It's the fact that its not a ah...very good pokemon. It made my first playthrough of Johto miserable. By the time I beat the ice gym I'd had enough and reset for Cyndaquil.

Oo, yeah that'll make me stick to Cynda then for my decision. I usually choose based on aesthetics for my first starter, but it's easy to obtain any of the gen 2 starters in sun so I'll pick based off of ease of game for this round. Since all I really want is Suicune.

I think when I first played Crystal back when it was first released (Crystal was my first game--my brothers let me play their red/blue games but Crystal was the first one I owned) I went with Totodile.  I think I may do that just because I can.  And I have Silver and Gold on my 3DS (which is why I'm putting Crystal on my 2DS) already so I will probably just start each game with one of each of the starters.  The hard part for me is deciding what to name them.  :biggrin:

To be fair, its not entirely Chikorita's fault. There are very few places for a grass type to level up decently and far too many gyms are stacked against it, especially early on. Flying Gym, Bug Gym, Fighting Gym, Ice Gym are a few examples.

My daughter sailed through it with Totodile. She says Feraligator is an absolute beast!

I choose starters based on aesthetics too.

Definitely go with Crystal! It's got some nice extras to it.

I read that they actually made Celebi available as part of the after story, but I don't know how true that is because I read that before it was released and haven't had it confirmed from anyone who actually beat it.
