Best site to find out the best team, and it gives you several statistics about your team, and you can then see where to improve.

Sooo.
I'm currently in Goldenrod City, and my team currently consists of Quilava, Chikorita, Nidoran, Totodile, Dratini, and Ratata (HM/TM man)

I don't really get into the new pokemon games... I think it's cause I have such good memories on the classics, I don't wanna risk ruining em, lol.

These aren't new. They're basically graphically updated versions of Silver and Gold from the GB days. You know, the late 90's.

I'm not too far in, just a little past the second Gym. Team so far is Bayleef, Pidgeotto, Flaaffy, and Vulpix... Also currently carrying the Pikachu colored Pichu so I can get Spikey Eared Pichu. Got the GS Jirachi, Celebi, and the two Arceus types in the box for their respective events- I believe I have spares of all of them if anyone needs one (I bred/traded some badass pokemon in DPPt).

Need a water type, so maybe Lapras because I've always been a fan of them... It'd be nice to try something new though. No idea what I'll do for the sixth slot, probably an HM whore or something- I know I've got a few Mews stashed away somewhere if I wanted that.

Ooh, maybe Snorlax or the Extremespeed Dratini.

ANYWAY, I typically use www.serebii.net for my research needs, then www.smogon.com when I get far enough for a competitive team. Probably sticking with my Platinum one there though, level 100 Arceus, Gengar, Gyrados, Lucario, Zapdos, Smeargle.

It'd be cool to bring a Kanto starter over too. Squirtle maybe? Who knows.

Yep, Pokemon Crystal was my final Pokemon game... And even then I preferred the original 151 pokemons.

EDIT: Though Crystal wasn't late 90s, but very early 00s.

Totally getting Soul Silver. The release date over here isn't for a week and a bit though. I absolutely loved Silver to pieces, and considering that the main changes are apparently graphics, with more Pokemon than the original thrown in, I'm hoping for big things!

Well... big things being things that I've already experienced once before, but prettier and in a slightly greater quantity.

You know, I thought I had gotten through w/ pokemon after the whole "growing up phase", where it was socially taboo to play pokemon past 13 years old. A few weeks ago, I noticed a good amount of fellow colleagues getting hyped for soulsilver and heartgold. Feeling nostalgic, I discovered the gba emulator. I downloaded ruby, which was the generation I hadn't gotten into, snd rediscovered a friendship I had long forsaken. I noticed that others who snuck glances didn't treat me any different... Hell, even the stoners were still cool with me. I downloaded platinum last week... Feels goodman.


TL;DR

I'm back into pokemon. Except the TCG.

Pokemon is cool, I like to play. I just dislike the anime, though the manga kicks ass. I mean, pokemon actually KILLING other pokemon, how cool is that?

Anyway, I'm totally getting these new versions. :3

My kids would be thrilled...well the youngest one perhaps...

I could never get into it, The game came out in the west when I was 18 so it was a " child's game" and holds no nostalgia for me.

now he-man/thunder cats/TMNT/ewoks/droids and other cartoons of the 80's etc... now there is my nostalgia

They also added more shit in Kanto, so it's more than just beating the Gym Leaders, afaik.

I have both games on my HDD, just need to wait until my Flash Cart comes in.
