Yoshi invited me to this thread to discuss Pokémon, and seeing that I was a great fan of Pokémon back when Red and Blue came out, I came here!
Back when I had Pokémon Red and Blue, I had a Charizard lvl 100...until some idiot started a new game and saved over my one!
Then I got Silver, and had a pretty good team with Feraligator, Lugia, Ho-oh, Espeon and guys like that. Meanwhile, I went to watch the first three films, bought the cards, and basically lived like a Pokémon fan.
But then I discovered that the place where I live in Italy is not a good place for, basically, any kind of collectible games, including Pokèmon, Warhammer 40000, and Magic the Gathering. There were no other fans to trade with (not ones I can meet on a regular basis), and although I hold on for a bit in hope to collect all pokémon, my interest in the games dwindled. The fact that Mum gave me only 15 euros monthly to buy my stuff helped in the equation.
Now I have a DS, and from this month i get 50 euros monthly. I may buy a DS game for a birthday, and I am considering getting either Final Fantasy Revenant Wings or The World Ends With You. In your opinion, should I consider Pokèmon Diamond and Pearl in the equation?
