Hello there, everyone! In just over a month from now, the Pokémon franchise will be celebrating the 25th birthday of the first Pokémon games, Pokémon Red and Green, being released in Japan for the Game Boy. To celebrate the occasion, I've been working on a sort of survey that we can fill out and discuss our answers to in an effort to celebrate the franchise we all know and love. I'll be posting my answers at a later point in time, but for now, let's get into the questions. I hope you all enjoy this neat celebration idea of mine. Here's to even more wonderful Pokémon memories and experiences! (Feel free to answer only the questions you want to answer.)
