Can't believe it's been 20 years! Heck, I wasn't even born yet! (I was born in 1998, 2 years after Pokemon began.)
Now that the original games are being released for the 3DS, a few of the younger kids on my street are getting into Pokemon, and are planning on playing them as their first Pokemon games. Pokemon seems to be an interest in my neighborhood, considering PetrolPatrol (AKA, the girl with the Eevee) used to live across the street from me when she taught me about Pokemon ten years ago. Still can't believe I managed to get through Diamond when I didn't know anything about Pokemon at all, and my team was all over the place!
Here's to Pokemon's 20 years!
