Older Nintendo handheld gamers, are you still able to play Pokemon to this day?

You mean the old pokemon? It can get super tedious especially with the random battles if I try to play it, even g/s/c

So yes and no, it depends on how hard I'm nostalgia-ing.

My friend tells me if he gets high he can play straight from beginning to end as long as he doesn't lose his buzz.
this one time, i found a pube in my unopened pokemon game
I would have 1500 karma, but I forgot to login.

Yes, I still love Pokemon just as much as when it first came out in North America.

I had Red when it came out and played it a ton. As I've grown much older now I find that I can't play RPG's anymore. Used to love the grind. Now, can't stand it. Probably because there are other things I find more worth my time now. As a kid, spending hours grinding didn't really matter.

Yes. I've been a huge fan since original US release of Red/Blue. I like every generation of games because each one has made the battle system better.

I never could play Pokemon. My first foray into the series was yellow and the things you mentioned killed it for me right off the bat. Mindless repetition wasn't something I shied away from either, I used to replay mega man 2 levels until I could finish them without getting hit all the time. Pokemon just didn't draw me in.

No, I don't have the time for the complexity of the metagame. Totally down with the idea though.
