Hello /vp/. This is my first post ever on this board. But that doesn't matter. All that matters is I'm gonna tell you a sad story.
Last time I've played pokemon was roughly 10 years ago. I have played the Crystal version and I vaguely remember that it's been a really fun game. So couple of days ago, I don't know how or why, an idea popped into my head. I realized I never played the original Red or Blue version of pokemon. Actually I've played it but never completed it. And who would have guessed that they remaked Red and Blue into FireRed and LeafGreen! Oh boy was I thrilled when I saw that on the Internet. I've felt such a thrill, you know of that feeling when you discover something epic and unexpected? That's what I felt and I immediately...
Sorry for not finishing that sentence but I just remembered why I decided to play pokemon again. I stumbled on PokeMMO and was thrilled by their idea, downloaded FireRed rom and wanted to play it. But then I've read their FAQ and saw they didn't implement the whole game (ther are no legendary birds nor Elite four for example) and of course there's no speed option as VBA has. So I've said fuck that and downloaded VBA and started playing FireRed with that rom I downloaded cause of PokeMMO. I followed some guy's advice of taking Bulbasaur cause he downs first 3 gyms easily and catch Geodude on Mt. Moon and level up only those 2 pokemons. And boy that guy was right. I've sweeped every gym leader and every trainer I encountered without a sweat cause two of my pokemons were always several, if not 10 levels higher. So everything was going smoothly and I really enjoyed playing the game (props to Nintendo for remaking the old versions, a great marketing and gaming move) because of all the new features but the traditional shic remained.
