The Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow Thread

Post by RainbowGazelle » Tue Jan 12, 2016 4:11 pm

Today NoE announced that we're getting the epic transparent 2DSes that Japan is getting (minus the green one)!!

Image

Each 2DS includes one of the games pre-installed, a code for a home theme, and some stickers!

I couldn't find a good thread to post this info in, so here's a new one in all it's glory! Are we looking forward to these VC releases? Is anyone going to buy any of these transparent 2Dses?

That's only in North America (that's why I didn't mention it).

Should be good, wondering if they've sped up elements of it (i.e. general speed of battles) considering they've added vital things to the games like online features such as trading. Should be a great nostalgia trip all the same and a great chance to revisit the games that basically got a lot of us into gaming in our generation.

Pokemon was the first game that consumed my life. Will probably buy yellow and blue (from VC) cos i have red knocking about somewhere. Also can we play as a girl i.e Green., would be interesting to know, though I'd prefer if they stay gen 1 mechanics and style.

I am not a massive Pokemon fan but I remember being addicted to Yellow when it first came out so might buy that again

Yellow for me.
I remember way back when these games first came out, it was one for me and one for my sister - so I had Red. Yellow was somehow passed over, so this is the perfect time to buy it. It's also a nice throwback of using transparent consoles like the old Game Boy.

Probably going to get Yellow for old time's sake, be interesting to see how much they change with regards to glitches and stuff, hopefully the Mew glitch will still be possible.

Still have my old blue cartridge, which went through a washing machine, yet miraculously still works. Apart from the save function.

Pls no kill missingno. mind you p sure missingno wasn't in yellow/

Edit. If old man missingo glitch still remains we could do some gen 1 battle nights/tourneys or somehting, not like it requires effort beyond catching the 6 pokemon you want as the glitch will give you all the tms and rare candy's you need, and it's like what, ~9-12 hours if you do everything while keeping levels ahead of gym leaders up until giovanni.

Could do, if they took out all the glitches that caused crashes and data corruption (which I can see them doing) then I guess it'd just have to be an in-game team tour. Good luck racing to lv 100.

I will probably end up getting Blue and Yellow, I got Blue with my GBC but someone stole the cartridge when I stupidly took it into school. Looking forward to playing through the Kanto region again

I usually play Red and Blue on a regular basis using the Dodrio Gameboy on Pokémon Stadium. I probably play Red and Blue (together) around two or three times a year, I absolutely adore those games. It's likely I'll purchase one of the three games just so I can battle and trade with friends. I'd be more inclined to purchase one of the three games if Nintendo confirm they will have online play.

I've been meaning to buy a Physical copy of Blue for ages just to complete my main series collection. Will definitely get one of the digital ones though. Not sure which, maybe Red. Might get Yellow as well for the Pikachu and receiving the three starters thing.

I'm definately getting Yellow, and I'll probably get Red too. I only ever started with Squirtle on my old Blue version so I want to try the game with Charmander. And depending on how much these games are I might eventually get all three and go with Bulbasaur in Blue.

Still have original carts of them all, although I've no idea if they still work. I'll almost certainly get at least one of them though.

Yeah, will definitely be getting one of these but not sure which yet. I think I remember playing on Blue a long while ago, but we definitely had Yellow so I think I'll go for that

I'm going to go for Pokemon Red and try and replicate my Charizard only run I inadvertently did when I first got the game (7 year old must have thought it was a great idea), I remember Lance and Gary being rock hard with just Charizard. I'll also get a copy of Yellow purely as you can have Pikachu following you around and all 3 starters, it'll be a huge nostalgia trip playing these games through again. I hope they have at least kept the Mew glitch in for old times sake.

What actually was the Mew glitch? The only one I ever knew about was Missingno.

I'll get Red and/or Yellow to play it for a couple of hours until I get bored because I've played or seen them played a billion times already. It'll probably be at Mt.Moon.

I wonder if they'll add in a move deleter, iirc there wasn't one in first gen (unless I just never found them) which was pretty annoying if you wanted to be rid of HM moves.
