To tell you the truth and to keep it short and sweet, I started playing Pokémon when Yellow Version came out. That was my main Generation I game, I didn't really care about my Blue and Red Version. When Gold and Silver came out, I saw Silver being the better one since my cousin was playing Gold Version and we have been rivals since Pokémon came out. Crystal caught my eye when ever the battery had run dry out of my Silver version. Around this time I had lend my Red version out to a friend and he lost it by accident (it wasn't that good of a game anyways.) Anyways 2 years later and I got Ruby and Sapphire. My cousin got hooked onto Sapphire, at the same time I was hooked onto Ruby. FireRed and LeafGreen came out and I was a happy boy seeing as how I loved Yellow Version, and thinking it would be the same setup as that. It wasn't and both of them didn't really catch my eye, unlike Emerald Version that next year.
