HORRAY FOR POKEDAY! :D
Pokemon took over my entire childhood, Pokemon is the reason I met my best friend because I was playing Red on the bus home from school in the second grade! :p

I don't care how stupid the games get, like how everyone is up in arms about the new Black and White 2 being released, I still will absolutely buy it and play it regardless. And when I'm older and have children I will fight with them over who gets to play the newest games. I will still play Pokemon games when I am 90 and will give my grandchildren a class on how to properly train Pokemon.

Hmm, that's the Japanese release date... 1998 for most of us here in the US.. :P 1999 for the poor folks in Europe.

Needs a new Stadium like title though, those mini games man, those mini-games!

Thanks to this thread I can save on my Crystal game again! Now, I just need to get a new battery and find my precision screwdrivers...

Really 16 years? I feel oddly old now. I am pretty sure it took 2-3 years before Pokemon got popular because I remember the TCG coming out during 2nd grade for me.
