One of the words I like to associate with Poke-mania.
Pokemon Gold & Silver were the exact embodiment of that obsession.They essentially created my favorite ever Pokemonexperience .They also introduced a couple of new fantastic additions, and opened up the world of Pokemon like never before.
If you grew up at the time of complete Poke-mania, then Pokemon Gold & Silver were probably a huge deal because of what they offered:
-A new in game clock that actually tracked time and date which in itself affected different events in the game, ie. a specific type of Pokemon appearing at a certain time.
-A 100 new types of Pokemon,new elements, and the introduction of breeding Pokemon for the first time.
-A brand new region full of places to venture through.
Oh, and don't get me started on how awesome it was realizing that there are 8 more badges to get after you beat the Elite Four. Realizing that was one of my favorite moments ever, and visiting the changed Kanto region was a one of kind experience.
I talk about the two games more in today's video, so be sure to check it out:
Was Gold & Silver that special to you as well? If not, what's your favorite Pokemon game?
