I recently played through pokemon blue again and it stirred up many memories. I actually liked knowing the mechanics of the game, it made it fun knowing that I actually knew what I was doing this time around. I loved not having natures and EVs though. Not having to worry about getting a relaxed Charmander or getting too many defensive EVs by blasting Onixs with my Bellsprout is amazing. That is probably the thing I miss most, just being able to use a pokemon without catching a billion of them to get a perfect one. Other things I miss include: -The original E4, so badass, easily the best of the generations IMO they all just seemed to fit the "these are the most powerful trainers you will fight" bill -Mixed Gyarados -Victreebell being arguably the second best grass type in the game -As many have said, old music -Old Gym leaders, so awesome, so much character -That level 16 Raticate trainer that kicks so much ass, also Raticate kicking ass -Team Rocket and Giovanni being the 8th gym leader, so epic -Did I mention Mixed Gyarados? -The fighting dojo -Awesome Sprites -Blue/Gary/Rival having an awesome team, I remember hating him but at the same time thinking his team was so cool at the end. That is it for now, Playing through Blue again kinda makes me not want B/W (lies). It was one of the more enjoyable video game experiences I've had in a while.
