The Countdown to Pokémon Sun & Moon is on. From now until November 18th, I’m taking a nostalgic walk through the Pokémon main series releases until the beautiful day I get my hands on the next Pokémon adventure!
Though I always preferred the original 150 to the newbies that joined in Gen 2, and I’ll always love walking around Kanto more than Johto, there was something about Gold & Silver that was magical. I think it’s simply because it took a game we all loved and made it more– more legends, more items, more locations. The fact that it was like 2 games in one was too cool. There are tons of little things I liked about these games and when Crystal came out and I got to finally play as a girl and chase a legend, it was my favorite yet.
For some reason, I really loved collecting apricorns for Kurt to make into balls. I wish this would come back!
Now for my tag!
Which Version: Gold first, Silver later and less emphatically
Played On: Aqua Gameboy Color.
Starter Pokémon: Totodile
Favorite Town: Ecruteak City
Favorite Gym Leader: Jasmine
Favorite Pokémon: Mareep, Flaafy, & Ampharos! Chinchou & Lanturn, the new Eeveelutions, Murkrow, Misdreavus, and Delibird.

Proudest Moment: So many things! Stepping back into Kanto felt like purse bliss! I love, love, loved the Suicine storyline in Crystal. What I loved about these games was that you really delved into the legends of the land. Also, evolving Umbreon and Espeon successfully! And finally, catching the Red Gyarados!
Most Embarrassing Moment: I probably fainted in Bellsprout Tower. I definitely fainted fighting the Kimono girls the first time around.
Master Ball Used On: Probably Ho-Oh in Gold, probably Suicune in Crystal.
Now I want to hear from you! Do my little tag and relive your Gold/Silver/Crystal days!
