I can remember clear as day, what I like to call the golden age of Pokemon, back when the only games in the series were Blue and Red, The anime was in its infancy, and there was only one series of the trading card game. I don’t know what the winter of 98 was like in other countries, but in England at least you could not go five minutes without at least a mention of Pokemon. As a kid, it was the only few months where I actually looked forward to going to school, as I looked forward to trading cards, discussing the anime and everything else that went with the craze.
There is no doubt that Pokemon is still fairly popular today, but I don’t think that anything will compare to those early days of the franchise. In this thread I want to discuss that golden era, the 1998-1999 period, and for everyone to share their favourite memories of that time.
