I haven't played a Pokemon game since the original Blue on Game Boy. I was wondering if I would be completely lost if I started playing this one and should I play some of the other one's before getting this one?

Each game is designed to be played as if you've never played a Pokemon game before in your life. You should be perfectly fine jumping into this one. Just don't assume that everything will work the same way it did before.

A lot has changed, by the way. ;)

Hopefully you'll enjoy all the new features.

The core gameplay is the same, but there are tons of added features and (as of gen VI) over 700 Pokemon. The series has gotten much better over the years. You won't be disappointed.

TC isn't a Genwunner.
If he was, he'd be hating on this game instead of getting it.

You will be fine TC. You will be able to trade and battle with people and it'll be great!

I don't know if necro is being serious or not.

A familiar note is produced.
