    Ok... How many Pokemon are we at now? Last I was in the know, kids were still using their Gamesharks for Mew, Togepi was being introduced, and Marill was still Pikablu. Oh, and Missingno.... Stupid Missingno....

    I hate being old. I burned through black and white just to see the end, and sold my 3ds after like 3 gym leaders last game. I don't spoil looking at new Pokemon prior to release, but they all seem so boring. Not even saying that "red/blue" was best or anything nostalgia related. I just wasn't "excited" about what I find next. Hopefully I'll pick one up one day and just totally get sucked into catching them all again.

    So are these games innovating at all or are they still the same as the games from the 90's but with more creatures?

    The base mechanics are largely the same, so if all you've played is Red or Blue, you won't be out in the cold. They are different enough though from one iteration to the next that it manages to keep things interesting.

    The basic mechanics and gameplay are similar, but the underlying mechanics and more complex things that determine stats and growth and such have gotten much deeper since the first generation. Most people wouldn't care except for those heavy into breeding or competitive battling honestly, but I find it kinda fun to be able to craft one exactly to your liking.

    I actually just bought 2 New 3DS Xl's for me and the fiance to play these games. We both played red, blue and yellow as kids. I thought this would be a cool time for us to hop back in since we've both played the originals. Actually super stoked for this.

    They released Red, Blue and Yellow on the 3DS eShop recently if that interests you. Also, every other main series Pokemon game is currently playable on 3DS, if you get hooked.

    I like the idea of transferring a Pokemon from the demo to the full-length game. Makes it actually worth spoiling the early game IMO.
