Almost every child of my generation had the original Pokemon games on the Gameboy Colour back in the late 90’s early 2000’s. Admit it, if your nearing your 30’s, you had either Pokemon Red, Pokemon Blue or Pokemon Yellow, or if you were a spoilt brat like me, you had all three. I was one of the few people I know of that had all one hundred and fifty Pokemon (this was when there were only 150 Pokemon, as opposed to the 807 that there are now)
I had a pretty cool dream team, all level 100, trained that way, there was no rare candy cheats going on in my dream team.
My starting Pokemon and a good ole’ fire type, he stayed with me from the beginning right up until the end, right through his evolution’s to Charmeleon and then to Charizard.
My favourite ghost type Pokemon and my key defence against any psychic type Pokemon, however this is one Pokemon that I didn’t allow to to evolve, if only because I preferred Haunter to his next stage Gengar (and I already had a Gengar).
A Psychic Pokemon, because most Pokemon are weak against psychic attacks, I allowed Abra to evolve to Kadabra and then Alakazam, and he was a stable of my team throughout.
A water Pokemon, who eventually went on to evolve into Dragonair, although I would never allow him to evolve further.
The Computer Pokemon, I’m having trouble remembering why he was on my team, but I remember that he was, although he would often be substituted for other things fairly often.
The Legendary Bird Pokemon of electricity, as an electric Pokemon, he was great against water types, but also as a flying Pokemon was good against ground types so was, a legendary addition to my team, you might say.
