Was the secret boss of GSC a complete surprise for you? *Spoilers*

Were you spoiled on Red being the secret boss of GSC or was it a complete surprise when you reached the end of Mt Silver all those years ago?

And what was your reaction?

Well I was young then, so it was like "Oh, who's this?"

"Red? Wait, like Blue?"

"LEVEL 81?"

I thought it was awesome when I got to him.
I was rather ecstatic.

I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

Snorlax destroyed my entire team. Graveler beat his Pikachu, my Espeon with Bite beat his Espeon in a long drawn out battle, and then I had NOTHING to stop that god damned Snorlax back then. It swept me

Not gonna lie, I wondered why his name was Red and not Ash.

I don't really remember, but I'm pretty sure I was expecting a legendary Pokemon, when I only found a person I expected to be given some badass item, but what do i get for all my trouble? a Pokemon battle.

Then I realized I was fighting myself from the first gen. That just blew me away. I thought it was the coolest thing ever.

Then that damn Snorlax came out and my excitement quickly turned to rage >.<

My reaction was... "Who? Wait this is a boss?"

I started on Gold and I was only 7. My big brother didn't show me his Red version until much later, and it wasn't even until I turn 10 that I realized, "WAIT, RED IS THAT GUY!?"

Yes, I was really, really slow as a kid.

No, I had the Versus Books guide which unfortunately didn't have a pokedex.

That guide didn't spoil Red at all. It just said there's a big surprise waiting at the end of the dungeon with a good luck after it

I know cuz I had that guide. The one with the complete pokedex probably spoiled it
