  4. I always felt a little sorry for Brock, because he had to keep his Pokemon at such little baby levels (being the first Gym leader) and wasn’t even allowed to have any of the good Rock-types.

  5. Pokemon Blue was the first videogame I played in my own house, and I suppose that’s one of the reasons I have such an attachment to the series. Up until then, my only access to videogames was at friends’ houses, since my parents weren’t too keen on bringing me into that world. In 1998, I rented a Gameboy Color and Pokemon Blue from Blockbuster video and played it like crazy. I started with Squirtle. I made it to the Elite Four, but couldn’t beat the Champion. I had to return the cartridge before I was able to finish the game.
Finding Red in Pokemon Gold, having gone into exile in Mount Silver, was the coolest thing in the world.

  7. I imported a copy of Pokemon Gold when it came out in Japan ten years ago (give or take). I fumbled through it, knowing absolutely no Japanese. It was amazing.

  11. Tifa Lockhart, from Final Fantasy VII, but super TUFF. Did we ever find out if Tifa and Gilderoy are related? Get back to me on that.
