Then, I eventually came across my first Regi and, granted, I had no idea I was going to actually find a new pokemon at the end of this let alone 3. So, I was super pumped and excited that I found them on my own. This was around my summer camp days so, when I found out, I ended up sharing this discovery with all my friends and helping them find the regi's on their own. I remember it making me feel like I new a super cool secret and it was always fun seeing how intense my friends got when they finally reached the regis for themselves and spent the whole day trying to catch them.
Needless to say, the regi ruins gave me a real blast in my childhood and they're probably the most fun I've ever had in a pokemon game ever. Makes me want to take this game blind just to see if Nintendo is going to pull a similar stunt in Gen VI :)
It took me ages to even realise the Regis existed. I think probably about 6 months after I first got Ruby I came across that cavern with the braille and suddenly the braille code that came with the game made sense and I became a man on a mission to figure it out.
It was definitely amazing first encountering Registeel and thinking it was the coolest Pokemon ever. Catching all 3 of them gave me a huge sense of accomplishment moreso than than becoming champion etc.
And I can relate when showing friends the amazing Pokemon I caught :]
