When I received Pokemon Gold at 3 years old, the month right after I came from Cuba to the US...I'll never forget that moment. The music in Azalea town...Violet City...The Burned Tower...Lake of Rage. The excitement of finding a Scyther in the Bug Catching Contest...and beating my Rival once and for all before the Kanto journey started..
I still have the Gold cartridge. Of course, the sticker doesn't exist anymore, as years of it being ripped and other stuff. But I'll never throw away that cartridge, even though the battery doesn't work anymore.
Heart Gold will never fill the void in my heart that Gold gave me :(
