That was a lot easier once I looked to the Web for my "strategy." I ended up with 62 when I got Mew...I had missed out on MUK, of all creatures.

Also, I spent an HOUR getting that damn Jigglypuff Trio shot - but it was worth it!

Next project on my N64: Pokmon Stadium 1. Aaron and Lise said I can leech off their GameBoy down the road, so that'll be neet.

Oh, just so you know. I sold the PSX to a guy Lise knows in Seattle. You didn't seem to really want it.

Lise is lagging on finishing off Pokemon on the Game Boy... which is good, because it means I won't have to buy a Game Boy Advance any time soon.

Red/Blue or Gold/Silver or Crystal? I haven't played Crystal but Gold/Silver is kinda unexpectedly long - especially if you effort to get all the (or as many as possible) Pokemon. I think I was up around 170 before I got sick of leveling up.

I know this defeats your plans, but it's actually better to play the GameBoy games BEFORE the N64 ones, since you can port your high-level creations off Red/Blue (for the first Stadium) and Gold/Silver (all four, for the second Stadium) if you get a Transfer Pack (which comes with the first one, I do believe.)

We have Silver, but we traded with her little brother for a lot of the stuff you can't get off of Red (or was it Blue?).

I still need to pick up an N64 so we can play this game. I went to Funco to do that, but ended up picking up a $39 Dreamcast for my bedroom instead.

I keep meaning to pick up a cheap Dreamcast. I have a Japanese one (to play all the cool wrestling games), but I have a hard time getting it to play American games. It would probably be worth 30-40 bucks to finally get to play Shenmue.

I think the real question is "Do you still play 'Hey You, Pikachu' and annoy your neighbors?"

For the 5 minutes that I played it, it seemed cute enough, but I could see it devolving into a shouting contest with your tv...

If I had it, it'd devolve into a shouting match sooner rather than later.

I'd probably end up inventing new four-letter words to yell at Pikachu.

Pokemon Snap is actually a lot of fun. For those opposed to the critters, just think of it as a shooter.

For the record, I've finished Red, don't even have all my badges in Silver, and gave up on Stadium. Too frustrating, esp. those electric Pokemon. Bah.

And how much does Jigglypuff rock?

I've finished Red and I beat Gold (though I didn't have "all" of the Pokemon...I did beat the actual game though).

Never had an N64, so I guess I missed out on the Pokemon Stadium craze, eh?

Stadium is a decent game....less fun if you don't have the GB versions, basically because of the transfer pak feature. Never played Snap, tho. I am, however, patiently waiting for Pokmon Next to come out....

Never played Pokeman. Is it kind of like the computer game "Black and White"? I thought that was decent.

If a thirty year old veteran of the Atari age can have fun with it than cool.

What do I need to get started?

Also what's up with this Pikachu fellar? Should I believe the hype????????

It depends on how far you want to carry out your idea of what Black and White is about. That being said: Not really.

Pokemon is basically an RPG, but instead of you or your party fighting, your little pets do it for you. Then you try to catch others and level them up until you've got the best group of pets to fight with. It's like cockfighting, but legal, and with plants, dragons, and giant rocks all part of the fights.

If you are really interested, watch the show first (check your local listings) and see if you can stand that. Or if you want to bypass that completely, just go out and buy the GameBoy version (Which one? I'd go with Red or Blue for your first shot). If you're familiar with the Final Fantasy Legends series it should be really easy to pick up. If not, it still probably won't be that hard.

As for Pikachu, I think he's one of the cutest things on two (sometimes four) legs, but your milage may vary.

Thanks man I'll get it for my Gameboy Advance. That is if it hasn't been stolen which it probably has as I live in the ghetto and have a bad habit of leaving it in my car.

Anyway thanks for the info it sounds kind of like Monster Rancher to me.

Later.

Believe the Pikachu hype.

Those episodes, where he's eating apples? Or where he's cradling the broken ketchup bottle in his paws, tears welling up in his eyes... I wish they bred giant yellow electric rats, because I would sooooooo get one.

You know..this sums up the crazy bunch of sumbitches we are here..
And that is in a good way.

We watch guys beat eachother up for fun and cheer when they do moves that could kill a man and here we are talking about a game and franchise originally for little kids.
I told this to a girlfriend of mine last night and she cracked up..
I am glad I have found a home here..where I work people thought I was weird telling that before I left the house that morning I watched Pokemon.
Thanks everyone *pushes back tears* and sorry..I had to share this.

Havent played Snap, Stadium is pretty sweet however. I love the little games in there too.

I'd put money on the fact that you're right. Pathetic, but right.

Magic...I could buy that game, but unless it's being played on a 4-bit screen, Pokmon is just weird.

Frankly, I could ONLY play Magic on a four-bit screen.

I picked up the old Microprose Magic games for the PC for cheap, and found myself enjoying it a lot more than I expected. The variety of cards made for a nicely complicated challenge, and the fact that ALL the cards were right there for you to examine and choose from was the deciding factor. You could play right away without having to hunt through eight thousand booster packs for the three cards you needed.

(Alternatively, there were single-player modes that started you with a very basic deck and challenged you to go out and find better cards, and tournaments where everyone started with random cards.) Fun stuff, and I was disappointed that the recent "Encylopedia" version had no one-player modes -- and also disappointed that the single-player is unplayable on my Athlon 1300 due to speed issues. I'd need to jack it down to about 500 MHz to slow it down to semi-normal speed, and I hate futzing around with the bios more than I need to.

I played Monster Rancher 1 and 2 until my fingers bled, but I never got into Pokemon, largely because I don't own an N64 or a Game Boy. My wife has the latter, but I don't use it. (Now, SNK vs. Capcom: Cardfighter's Clash on the NeoGeo Pocket Color... mmmmm. THERE's a portable card game.)

ObPokemonSnap: If you enjoy the photograph-interesting-critters aspects of Pokemon Snap, check out Fatal Frame next month on PS2. Think "Pokemon Snap meets Resident Evil" and you're on the right track. Zombies and spectres and mystically-charged cameras, oh my!

Hey, wanna see a front roll in? Here's the hourly temperature graphic starting at midnight. (Yes, at midnight it was still 70 outside - what fun conditions for trying to sleep) It's been raining all day, too.
