  1. The Unown are also on 7 island in Firered and LeafGreen and in platinum version.
    Is it bad that I never knew that the red Gyarados wasn’t actually shiny but was red because the Magikarp didn’t change to blue due to the forced evolution until a few weeks ago?

  2. I see generation 1 and 2 as my favourite and see them as the same since they are both my from childhood. I noticed the quality decrease in the new games so I stopped buying the games and just watch walkthroughs on YouTube. I can get the main story from the anime as well so I’m not really missing much not playing.

  3. Latios isn’t in Gen 2, means it’s not the best… D:< But other than that, Gen 2 really is the best- most immersive, had a creepy but nice feeling to it (at least to me), best Pokemon since it also had Gen 1 in it, and just things like that… 😛

  4. Gen1 is by miles better it was the first out making it all new and exciting, not just a couple of extra bits plus i could never get past the ratattas in Gen2 Crystal.

  5. Shut up! Generation 1 just had better Pokemon, and it was the original, making it way better than the others!

  6. i found my brothers old crystal game and it works in my gba sp so this is pretty cool. i never knew about the sounds on the radio in the ruins of alph! but i am having some trouble finding good pokemon, the first few routes seem chock full of the weaker begining enemies (rattata, sentret, pidgey)

    • Still have my limited edition Pikachu and Pichu Gameboy Colour knocking about somewhere…
      You could always wait for night-time to hit and catch yourself a Spinarak or a Hoothoot, which aren’t all that bad, or wait for dawn and try to catch yourself a Poliwag. Of course you could always wait ’til you progress through the game and encounter stronger Pokemon to fill up your party!

  7. While I agree that GenII (especially Crystal) is easily the best, the battle with Red on Mt. Silver is not at all hard! I beat him every time I fought him, with no pokemon over level 73!

  9. All the Gen 1 games are complete garbage! They don’t deserve any glorification. Gen 2 is the very best, and my most colorful Pokémon memories are related to Johto. I love the music, the landscapes, and I swear everyday felt sunny when I played Gold/Silver/Crystal. I don’t see why Pokémon wouldn’t get any better over the years. I admit that there have been some drawbacks, but they’ve done anything but put real damper on them. In any event, God Bless Generation 2 and everything that made it so awesome.

  10. Perhaps you heard from me before, but all anyone needs to know is that the only suck-ass generation of Pokemon is the first. It’s graphics are sloppy, its music is terrible, there is no reason why it should be so praised. Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow are the most horrible games ever, end of story! Pokemon Gold/Silver/Crystal are far superior to the train-wreck from Hell which is the Generation 1 games. The Generation 2 games have much better graphics, memorable breath-taking music, and Pokemon attacks all look different; and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Everything about Gold/Silver/Crystal was praiseworthy and kick-ass. When you see a Pokemon game that has good graphics and music and makes you feel alive, you know it’s gonna be a great game. If you’re gonna trash-talk a Pokemon game, trash-talk the Generation 1 games, because they are worse than horrible. The Generation 2 games and more recent should be named the most beloved throughout the series. Johto and more recent forever!!
