I guess this question is for older folks who started with RBY. Were the games hard for you? I played Red when I was 5 and didn't know how a lot of things worked. I didn't even know how to exit buildings at first. I didn't understand things like the different between attacking/stat moves so I lost a lot. What about you?

Well, I haven't been around since the first generation, so I guess it would work with the first Pokemon game I had? It was Pokemon Diamond and Pearl. I was a bit confused about where to go and what to do. I was also slightly afraid of the sound that comes when you bump into something. For us back then, it was all about teaching your Pokemon strong moves and not worrying about strategy. It was until Black and White versions when we developed our strategies.

Growing up, I was one of those kids who raised their starter and pretty much only that. Having the starter around Level 50 and the second strongest being not even Level 20.

It took until the tail end of Gold/Silver for me to get a grasp on level balancing and was able to beat Crystal back in 2004.

Yeah I'm withe Miles on this one... I remember playing blue version and having to evolve my Wartortle evolve into Blastoise to defeat Misty... my next highest level pokemon was a lv 12 Nidoran... it's crazy how much people change considering I didn't get into competitive battling till X and Y came out

When I used to play the games when I was younger, I was so preoccupied with keeping my team balanced and ordered. I always alphabetized the Pokemon in my party, made sure they were all different types, and all had the same level. By the Elite Four, all of my team were lv40 and after getting destroyed by Lorelei, I trained them all to lv60 and abused healing items to win. xD

Wow @Bloom, I'm impressed! My first game wasn't Red, Blue, or Yellow, but it was Pokemon Silver (so still kinda old). XD I think I was 6 or 7 at the time, and I hardly understood a thing when it came to where to go or what to do. Like I thought you only had one chance to choose a starter and you were stuck with that one, so I got really excited when I picked Totodile. Tongue I too raised only my starter, with the next strongest in my party being only level 20 or so... and then I got stuck for a really long time with 5 badges not knowing where to go next. So I wasn't nearly as organized as you, but now I have a pretty similar approach as yours! (I'm a stickler for keeping my team all at the same level :3)
