Pokemon Discussion Thread: Generation II

Postby Killdash » Sat Oct 08, 2016 10:35 am

Welcome to the reincarnated thread for the discussion of the cultural phenomenon that is known as Pokemon.

Whether you indulge in the lore of the anime, are an incredibly fit Pokemon Goer, or prefer to play through the original console games, (and their newer versions, of course), you will certainly find a place here amongst fellow trainers and enthusiasts.

The thread is home to all types of wild topics on all Pokemon news and information. If it has to do with Pokemon, post it here.

Ah, Pokemon. One of the few reasons I'll come back to NS, surprisingly.

Sad that Pokemon Go died some after release. I enjoy riding the trolley around downtown while getting Koffing candy.

And I will again. Assuming downtown survives Hurricane Matthew.

Finally finally FINALLY just got to 100 on my Go Pokedex! Woo! It took like three months, but I guess that's not too bad considering I didn't spend a single RL cent or drive to any weird places outside my daily routine.

I imagine they're only going to be available at events.

And while we're comparing, I too have 83 entries in my Go pokédex.

Didn't they do something similar for Alola? I'm guessing you're referring to this map.

Sinnoh is by far my favorite region, with Johto and Unova close behind. However, Rowlet might replace Turtwig as my favorite starter.

I guess my favorite region is Hoenn because that's where I started my journey, and therefore I'm a 3rd Generation trainer. My second favorite would be Kanto.

Well, that, but there's also art of Ecruteak City, Johto and Kanto's map, even some art for Shadows of Almia.

I think they did really well when it came to art for gen. 4.

Anyway (In particular order):

Hoenn, Sinnoh, Johto, Unova, Kanto, Kalos. (Honestly, I'm kinda torn if I should just put Hoenn and Sinnoh as a tie, but eh...)

Torn between Sinnoh and Johto. The gen 2 games were great, and the locations give me nostalgiafeels (especially Ecruteak), but I do love Sinnoh's geography and myths.
