Trying to get back into Pokemon

#1kkd17Posted 1/16/2013 10:56:06 AM
Hey everybody. its been a long time but I'm thinking about getting back into the series. The last one I played was Diamond and while I thought it was pretty good, I can't remember anything about it. I've played at least one game in every gen (Gen II still a personal favorite). Should I start with Black/White (not part 2 since its a sequel) or just wait until this comes out?

Pick up HG/SS NAO

Seriously, Gen 2 was also my favorite. you will not regret playing HGSS

No, don't. They were a waste of time and money.

Get Ruby or something.

You really think so? I adore SS, gen two was a favorite for me, but with all the content it is hard to not like the reboot. At least for me.

if you want to pick up a gen V game, get B/W2. you don't miss that much on plot, and it's overall a much more fulfilling game.

I beat Sapphire years ago so I dont feel like doing it again (all I remember is the second half of the game being full of Surf).

I knew about HG/SS but I was thinking about starting a completely new game. Did HG/SS come out before/after B&W?

Before, it's a part of Gen IV. if you want to start fresh then get BW2

Either Black/White or their sequels are fine. If you want to get the sequels so you can go through the story with some familiar faces, then you don't lose much. Obviously the story is a continuation but it's easy to follow.
