My Brother The first game I can remember playing is Pokemon. It brought my brother and me together. I spent so many hours playing Ruby. My brother eventually grew up and spent more time with his friends than with me. He would barely play the game with me. Eventually he introduced me to Smogon. I saw Pokemon in a whole different way. We would discuss strategies and build teams together. We would battle each other constantly tweaking our teams. My brother eventually left to go to college. We still talk about Pokemon to this day. Pokemon brought us together before and now.
