There are a million Pokemon games out there and I have just about all of them. Sure, I’m missing a few side games here and there, but as for the main games, I have them all.Except one.
I didn’t start playing the Pokemon games myself until the Johto region. When the Kanto region came out I was too young to play the games properly.
I watched the anime, of course, and I watched Kris play through her Red, Blue, and Yellow games. Yet, I still didn’t fully understand the concept. Even when I started playing Johto I had no idea what I was doing.
But that’s where I started and that’s when I began my Pokemon collection. Gold, Silver, and Crystal.
It wasn’t until many years later that I realized I had never played the original games. I ended up getting a hold of Yellow through the Internet. I won a bidding war on Ebay for Blue and got it for $8.
But no Red.
Red has been on my Amazon wishlist for years now. It’s never available (or the price is $600). I’ve checked Ebay here and there, but have never gone for it because I know it probably doesn’t work anymore.
Technically, I do have Red. I downloaded the virtual console along with Blue and Yellow onto my 3DS.
Still, I just want the cartridge for my collection. I mean, I gotta catch ’em all.
Do you have the full Pokemon game set? Let me know in the comments below!
