This may seem a bit wierd, but when I originally joined these forums (which wasn't a very long time ago :P), I didn't actually own any Pokemon games. My mom took away my GameBoy Color after I overreacted and threw a tantrum because my Sudowoodo accidentally fainted Ho-oh, and neither of us ever saw it again.

However, I was planning on going out and buying a GameBoy Color and Pokemon Silver all over again over the past few months. I found this really great used-game/console exchange dealer called R.U. Game? in Tampa. Like I said, I planned on getting a GameBoy Color with Pokemon Silver. They had the GameBoys (they had lots of vintage games and game systems; it was paradise), but they said that English Pokemon games that old were hard to come by. A week later (this morning), I went there again. This time, they were out of both GameBoy Colors AND Pokemon Silver. But they did have a GameBoy Advance SP, as well as three copies of FireRed and one copy of LeafGreen. I then found out for the very first time (you would think I would know this by now) that SPs are compatable with GameBoy Color games.

So, eventually, I could end up with Pokemon Silver, Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald, AND Generation I remakes. So I figured that was a better deal, and I got it. The grand total was $69.95, more than I hoped for (I was hoping it was free :P). It was a big chunk into my pocket, but I never spend my own money anyway, so might as well. Besides, I could always ask for some other games for Christmas.

So yeah, now I officially have a GameBoy Advance SP with a copy of LeafGreen. Hopefully I'll expand to Generation II and R/S/E in the future. I'm happy now!

[I also fear I'm going to get some backlash that I'm "not qualified" to have my opinions on newer games, but I'm sure you guys are nicer than that. :) ]

    If you had any version of the DS you could get the remakes of Gold and Silver.

    Good for you!
    Don't worry, you don't need to be "qualified" to have opinions on these things (although knowing about them does help).

    Alas, I don't. Poor me! DX

    I just bought a GameBoy Advance SP for purely Pokemon-related reasons. I think getting a DS too would really break my bank. Maybe if somebody happens to be selling one at a garage sale for five bucks (that's how I got the GameBoy Color back in 2004). But other than that, I don't see it happening soon, though it would be much better option, since DSes are compatable with GameBoy games too (I believe). So I could get HG/SS with Kanto and Johto, R/S/E with Hoenn, D/P/P with Sinnoh, AND B/W with Unova. But that's not happening anytime soon. :/
