New to series

#1leopoldsharkPosted 2/15/2013 4:05:32 PM
I'm going to get a 3ds next week and I'm interested in getting into the Pokemon series. I used to watch the anime as a kid but I haven't played any of the games before. Which game is a good one to get into the series? I also have a GBA, so any GBA or DS game will do.

I recommend Firered or Leafgreen or Black 2 or White 2 or Heartgold or Soul Silver.

Heart Gold/Soul Silver
Black/White
Black 2/White 2

One of the above. I see HG/SS as the most accessible. B/W is the most story driven. B2/W2 are great all around, and the most up to date, but they do throw a lot at you early on.

I like Monster Rancher.

Wait for Pokemon X and Y. Hopefully they wont be a disappointment like the rest.

Black/White 2 are pretty good.
Note: They are currently on sale for 15$ at Bestbuy, until Monday. Pokemon games usually never go on sale.

Thanks. I was considering B/W and B2/W2 because the newest ones are generally the most polished. If I can find any of the GBA or early DS ones for cheap, I'll probably pick them up as well. I am somewhat of a Pokemon purist (original 151 ftw!) but I'll try to keep an open mind with all these new Pokemon. :)
