Favorite pokemon: Not really sure. I guess I’ve always really loved Steel types. So Scizor, Aggron, Lucario… I was also always a fan of Shedinja, I dont know.
Favorite main-series game: Hands down Emerald. Dont get me wrong, Ive loved all the others too, but Emerald will always have a special place in my heart as my first Pokemon game. Nostalgia factor to 11. I played it over and over and over and it never got old.
Fav spin-off game: Hmmm, Red Rescue Team was awfully dope… But Pokemon Ranger was really cool too. I dont know, someone else choose for me!
Fav Gen: Probably a tie between 3rd and 4th. 3rd for same as above. It was my first, and Ive spent a ton of time with it.
But 4th was the first time I really got hype about a new game coming out. I remember going into GameStop and playing the demo, “OMG its this new pokemon Lucario he’s sooo cool”.
The coolest and most memorable part though, was that it was released right before my birthday, and my parents surprised me by taking me to the Nintendo World Store in NYC where I got the game, and got to hang out at the huge release party. Needless to say, I have tons of memories about the Sinnoh region.
Fav Starter: Uhhhg… stop asking me all these hard questions. My first was Treecko, but I think I ended up liking Mudkip more from Gen 3… I dont know, Ive never really had a go-to starter in any game.
Dream team: No idea! Never played competitive, so Ive never thought about it that way at least. I think my final team from my first ever playthrough of Emerald was: Camerupt, Flygon, Alteria, Walrein, Cradily, Sceptile.
Fan games: Light Platinum and Rebirth. Although I havent beat either of them, they were both pretty fun.
Hype: Well, haha… I havent actually played a Pokemon game since White. I just decided the other day to go back through and play all the ones I missed; just got White 2. We’ll see how that goes, but Ive heard pretty good things about it.
Here’s my own question for everyone: Do you nickname your pokemon, and if so, uh… explain?
I didnt used to nickname at all, no exceptions. Then when I found out about Nuzlocke runs, of course one of the common rules is that you have to nickname every pokemon, so I tried it out.
Now what I love to do is think of a common naming theme. For example, one time I used all Little Busters characters. For White 2 Im gonna use F/SN Servant Class names XD
