You know who you are...

That's right.  I couldn't help but notice that everyone here has avoided the obvious.  So many of you hide behind your Warcraft and Starcraft.  Others find solace in the Final Fantacy series and still others will swear by Halo.
Yes they're all good games and who could ever get tired of some Halo combat but I know...yes, I know that there are those of you out there that once the PC is off you grab somthing else...No, not that, your Gameboy.  Uh huh.  I got you didn't I.  That's right.  I can honestly say that I am too a Gameboy junkie.  Better yet, how many of you are some how compelled to play Pokemon.  Don't lie.  I can smell a liar.  I'll admit it.  I've played my share of it.  I've wiped the floor with some Team Rocket butt.  And yes, I've tried to catch them all.  I even lost four hours of my day once just trying to gather some of those legendary pokemon that are supposed to be oh so great(GO LUGIA).  
This is now your sanctuary.  Come forth all who wish to be a pokemaster and tell us your tale.  Tell us which version you couldn't put down.  Your favorite pokemon?  How about which enemy was better?  Rocket, Magma, or Auqa?  Don't be shy.  Come on in.

Pokemon, huh?

Where do you think I got my name?

I have Blue, and almost finished it. I had almost 140, but it was so hard to trade for the Red-only pokes.

As for favourite Pokemon (from Red/Blue):

Articuno
Kadabra (or Alakazam, but I could never evolve mine)
Gyarados
Zapdos/Raichu

I think that's a good combo. Pretty much stolen from the AI rival, but without a fire Pokemon. I won't train one unless I start with Charmander, because I can hit fire's strength's with other types.

I am a Pokémon Jedi

I got the full Dex in Silver and Crystal
Oh yeah, even Celebi and Mew
Never completed the full Blue Dex because I'm too lazy to all that trading, but I could. I own all the game versions (how sad am I? )

Haven't completed the Sapphire Dex because I need Deoxys, I could Game Shark it I suppose, but I'm trying to find an EON ticket on e-bay to do it legitimately.

There are 3 new pokemon games out this year for GBA.
FireRed/LeafGreen are remakes of the old Red/Blue games, so I'll have fun with Charizard all over again.

3rd game is Pokemon Emerald, which is what Crystal was to Silver/Gold.

Post your fave Pokémon teams here !!!!
And I'll ridicule them!!!!

Right now I'm playing through Fire Red which I went out and bought the day it came out...shutup...ok I know I have no life.  Anyway, right now my team that I have been tearing up the fields with consists of Charizard, Graveler (because I can't trade with Ruby yet), Butterfree (chock full of good attacks and a high level), Pidgeot, Zapdos (which I recently attained.  It's harder to catch than I remember), and of course my Gloom (nicknamed Oddy because I'm a pokefreak).  I am also raising a Horsea but am mostely using it for surfing around because I don't feel like waisting a space on Lapras.
I am attempting to beat the Elite Four and have gotten to Lance but his damned Dragonite keeps wiping out my best and using the weaker ones for fodder because I only have 2 rivives left CUZ I'M FREAKIN POOR.  I spent too much on Ultra balls trying to catch the legendary birds.

By the way, if I named my character Ash, does that mean I need help?

One more thing, for those of you who already have Fire Red or Leaf Green, nobody is EVER in the little chat room thingy on the second floor of the Pokemon Center.  I keep going up there though...

FireRed/LeafGreen don't come here in Ireland/UK until October 1st But I'm sure I'll be just as sad...I mean...as devoted as you and get them pretty sharpish.

Charizard rocks, enough said

And I wouldn't bother with Lapras. I know he's a powerhouse, but I would rather teach my Seadra Ice Beam and Dragon Claw and then evolve it to a Kingdra (trade w/ Dragon scale) for taking out Lance's Dragon Pokemon.

Graveller's not too shabby, but there are better Rock pokemon, Tyranitar for instance

Butterfree? Special Attack isn't high enough for me, I'd take a Heracross or preferably a Scyther, evolved into a Scizor for my bug type.

Zapdos is OK, but if I remember right it only learns Thundershock and Lightning, I'd rather have Thunderbolt, though Drill Peck is nice.

Why a Pidgeot if you've got a Zapdos? Though there's a ghost trainerin the Elite Four isn't there? I suppose the normal type would help with that, though Gengar's Dreameater is nasty.

Also I'd evolve my Gloom into a Bellossom (sun stone). Means you get a stat boost and lose the Poison type weaknesses.

One good electric type would take out 5 out of your 7, so would an Ice type. (and I'd choose Electabuzz or Cloyster)


Edit: Ash? Seek help now!!!

And as far as I know, that chat room thingy is for people with wireless adaptors that are near eachother.

Most of the Pokemon you have listed there are choices I would have probably made myself but since Fire Red is just a re-make I cannot attain those hence what I have to deal with.  Butterfree because it was the first pokemon that can learn psychic attacks that I could get my hands on.  I my opinion Geodude was the best choise between him and Onyx because Geodude has that extra ground part that maks him able to avoid attacks from electric types.  He also has some great defence.  Pidgiot was my first flying type and I have Zapdos because I needed it's high leval and stats to take out my Rival's water type and also that first elite four chick.  Yeah, I'd evolve my gloom into a belossim in a heartbeat but again since this is Kanto I don't have access to a Sunstone.

Also:  If you choose charmander for a starter, don't worry about facing Brock.  The new additions were sympathic and allow charmander to learn Steel Claw.  You can also catch a mankey on that little patch of grass on the way to pokemon league near Viridian city.

You think naming my character Ash is bad.  Guess what I named my Rival.  I felt I had to.  All my other characters were named somthing different.

Actually as far as I know, you will be able to catch Johto pokemon in FireRed/LeafGreen, by going to those new islands or something, and Ruby/Sapphire pokemon can be traded into the game as well.

Whenever I want to know something about Pokémon I go here.

Yes i must admit it i WAS a pokemon fan, emphasising the WAS, it really doesnt appeal to me any more.

However i did play the card game, until some loser at school got me to trade all my best for his worst and ruined my collection some 5-6 years ago.

I had Pokemon Red, Blue, Silver, Gold. I had every single pokemon on each, and had unbeatable teams consisting of all lv 100 pokemon.Myself and another friend spents weeks comprising different element pokemon to produce the perfect 6, I battled all my friends and seldom lost. However due to trying to do that 'duplication cheat' (why did i listen?) i erased my game on red, and then later on blue. 'Apparently' there was a 30% chance you would lose your save file and the cheat would corrupt the memory files making the game unsaveable. My fav poke and still possibly is from red/blue is venusaur and alakazam, and from silver/gold it was the mesterious dark poke Houndoom.

However now the games dont interest me, it might be that ive grown out of it as most of my friends have, but i guess i just don't want to be a pokemon master

Okay, I'm back to Pokemon Crystal

Here's my current lineup:

L27 Krabby
L35 Machoke
L38 Typhlosion
L32 Gyarados (the red one)
L32 Pidgeotto
L38 Onix

I was considering replacing the Onix with a psychic pokemon. My pokedex says I have a drowzee and an abra, but it turns out I only have the drowzee. Huh.

So anyway, could anyone give me some advice I'm not that good at this game
