Being eight years old wouldn't have been as amazing without Pokemon.

Oh man....the nostalgia. I remember spending hours and hours playing pokemon yellow as a kid. I loved that game to death. Ha I remember how pissed Pikachu looked at me in the beginning of the game. The cartoons were great and sometimes even though I'm in college now I love to go play a good ol' pokemon game as a guilty pleasure. But not too often because let's be honest, 10 years of pokemon games can kind of wear down the formula a bit

@Bigandtasty: Hey man, I did a Google search of " the pokemon e"  and nothing came up.  You have to give me credit for trying, right?

Same. It's an annual tradition for me, playing through the original Game Boy games.

Pokemon defined my childhood. My best friend and I spent countless hours playing. I looked forward to car trips, because it was the only time my parents wouldn't get mad if I palyed nonstop for 8 hours.
