Relapsed fan.   
   
Mfw I beat the first 3 gen just going by type weaknesses and play PO and find out everybody plays this game like it's a 			***********		 of stat types, team types natures and 			****		.   
   
I'd just teach my pokemon moves cause I thought their name sounded cool and that "defense fell" "accuracy rose" "speed fell" were all just bs because I never really noticed them making much of a difference in my game.

that's how I play...

and then I see posts filled with math describing the best possible ways to get your defence and special attack points to the maximum level or something like that. idk.

stack double team a couple ******* thousand times, have fun with that **** I hope you have Aurasphere or Magical leaf, maybe even shadow punch

I miss the days when I could just go through an adventure with the ****** Pokémon you encounter early on in the game, and just teach them the most powerful moves and just spam them. Now I know too much and notice too many differences. But on the other hand, nowadays I never have to really grind my Pokémon in the tall grass for several levels, and I experience a lot less frustration.
#29 to #8 - anon (07/06/2013) [-]
Yeah, Pokemon games don't really appeal to me as much.
I occasionally force myself to play Soul Silver and rarely I do.
Pretty confused at the new stuff added after the 3rd generation.
Only other thing I get concerned about with stats besides weaknesses is natures and that ability thing (ex: flash fire)
User avatar #71 to #8 - ChumLeee (07/06/2013) [-]
That just how some people enjoy playing the game, you aren't forced to do anything of the sort.
I think it's great that they add new things to mix up strategies and gameplay every generation, if they kept it the same for the past near 20 years, I may as well still be playing Red. While I myself don't take it to the extreme as others do, training pokemon to be more powerful than normal is fun for me. You can still enjoy the game using the same basic strategies that have been in the game from the beginning.

******** . everyone noticed ******* sand attack and double team
User avatar #11 to #8 - monkeybrains ONLINE (07/06/2013) [-]
Exactly what I did. People started talking about stats and builds and **** , and I'm sitting there going, "Fire is weak against water" and **** like that.
#42 to #8 - zsabber (07/06/2013) [-]
in game stat changes are unnoticeable until that lvl 3 pidgey spams you with sand attack...

at least this is my experience

wheres the normal guy who just enjoys pokemon?
#55 to #2 - anon (07/06/2013) [-]
I am missing the guy that is stuck with generation one, two or three and hates everything afterwards.
"The ignorant retro", or something.
User avatar #3 to #2 - kiermatv (07/06/2013) [-]
sorry, who?
User avatar #4 to #3 - the fuzzball (07/06/2013) [-]
you know, most of the people who play pokemon that are older than 12

User avatar #58 to #9 - daentraya (07/06/2013) [-]
I just started with white, and even tho it's a ****** game, i enjoy it way too much. Just looking forward to XY, since it sound a bit more fun
#46 to #9 - captainwow (07/06/2013) [-]
Nice username, Emrakul's my favorite Pokemon too.

A little overpowered even for a legendary though.
User avatar #75 to #46 - emrakul (08/01/2013) [-]
meh, looking back I shoulda made this account Kozilek. Especially since I'm not too fond of the Big Em myself. Oh well, what can you do...

Relapsed fan here. Pokemon Red was my first Gameboy game (came out when I was in 5th grade), and I used to be one of those obsessed kids that went to tournaments (both game and trading cards); even won my N64 as a prize in one of those mall circuit tournies. Then I lost interest after the Johto generation, and am just now trying to get back into it.

And I am SO ******* CONFUSED.
User avatar #22 to #20 - sanguinesolitude (07/06/2013) [-]
same. I played them back in red and blue and a little of yellow. didnt play or watch the show, then bought white late last year (a friend offered to sell me his ds for like 25$ and i said what the heck.) My first thought was... I dont know any of these pokemon... or cities... or trainers... what is going on.

You need to login to view this link and bulbapedia are great sites to get any Pokémon information you might need.

Who the hell are reshiram and zekrom? What happened to those three birds articuno, moltres, zapdos. I had to google their names to see if they even were legendary.
#62 to #56 - feffog (07/06/2013) [-]

Growing up my mom was a massive bible thumper, and I ******* loved pokemon it was my favorite and I played em all and watched it everyday at 4, still remember but my mom watched some bible thumper dvd from church that said its evil and **** so I wasnt allowed watch or okay it after the age of about 7.... leading me to be a relapsed fan once she couldn't stop me oh and I also wasnt allowed watch harry potter bc the books were "cursed" and she asks me why I'm an atheist now

I'm the Relapsed Fan.
I never really got into Pokemon because I never owned a Nintendo handheld.
Only Pokemon game where I finished the story was Colloseum for GameCube and I didn't even own the game.
It's too much grinding imo.
#12 to #7 - anon (07/06/2013) [-]
I've never played colloseum, but I think (after watching a review thing of it) I remember hearing people say either that one (or gale of darkness) had a lot more grinding than the normal games. To be honest in DPP and BW (granted I haven't finished but based on the 1st 7 gyms) you don't need to grind at all (unless you want specific pokemon or specific moves). The XP you get from trainers battles should be enough.
#32 to #12 - fractalius (07/06/2013) [-]
I remember I never grinded, but that I'd always have my pokemon evolve at the exact same trainer every single time in Ruby when I replayed it.

It was some fatass bug catcher between the 3rd and 4th town or something like that.

But whenever I saw him, I'd be like "THERE IT IS. COMBUSKIN on the way"

I feel myself getting closer to relapsing every day...if I ever end up getting a 3DS it's gonna happen.
User avatar #43 to #35 - gracefuldamned (07/06/2013) [-]
I just got one two days ago. 3d is ******* legit. Ocarina of time has never looked better.
Also got Black 2. ***** cool, but battles are so ******* complicated now. And you cant ******* tell what type a pokemon is just from looks anymore. Still decent game.

Wouldn't the nerd point out that Ash is a dub name and actually his original name is Satoshi, named for the creator of pokemon?
