DS is awesome, so many good games coming, especially if you like RPGS. I'll list some later. Just a few to note:

Zelda, Final Fantasy, etc.

The only one I think I beat was Red version. I use to love collecting the cards (this was in 5th grade btw, bout 7 years ago) and hustling them in school like they was crack. I guess they were a young dudes crack back then cuz everyone had the cards. Trading Houlographics and playing the games at lunch was fun.

no **** at making fun of the girls that liked us and instead playing games designed to catch strange creature things

Anyway, yeah, I actually will admit to liking the Pokemon games. It's social suicide, but I don't have a social life. Their solid, addictive RPG games. The fact that I have fond memories of the original games doesn't hurt either

Ah I loved the pokemon games. I still think they are fun, and if I had a DS/gameboy I would probably play it. My favorite was the gold version, so much better than the rest. BTW YELLOW SUCKED BALLS. I ended up trading away my pikachu that follwed me around because he pissed me off

They're progressing quite nicely, actually. A year from now, it might be fully emulated. Maybe sooner. Like I mentioned before, No$GBA is running D/P at 70-80 percent speed consistently. 90-100% while inside.

Well, the thing was like a bad girlfriend. Emotional and clingy. I was pissed you couldn't make it evolve and have a Raichu follow you around. That would be cool. Undermines the purpose of Yellow a bit, but still, would be very cool.

No, that's the ghost gym. My Torterra's my highest level, 34, and he's ineffective against the ghost types. I have to level up my Luxio to at least 30-something to beat the gym, and it's only at 25 now.

in red/blue, there was a trick .


you put your master balls/ rare candies in the sixth slot of your items. Yoiu talked to the guy who taught you how to catch a pokemon. Then you flew to cinnabar island and surfed up and down the right sie coast until youd meet lke a level 152 golduck/snorlax and all kinds of crazy ****. the youd run, and you would have 99 of what ever you put in your sixth item slot.

It was weird. You had to try to exit the Safari zone, then say no to the guy at the desk, then save. You had to restart the game, then say no to the guy at the desk again. When you used up your steps, you would go into a place with random tiles from the game.
