Favorite Non-Version Pokémon Game: Pokémon Battle Revolution

What do you enjoy most about Pokémon?
In the video games, players today have more opportunities and means of connecting with one another than they did in earlier generations. They can battle and trade more often, which invites a greater demand for sanctioned competitions and tournaments, which in turn are opportunities for players to meet face-to-face with other players from all around the world. One of my favorite things to do is visit the Global Trade Station and the Pokémon Global Link/Dream World, which allow me to connect with players from other countries.

What do you enjoy most about Pokémon?
I love the video games! I remember the first time I played Pokémon Red for GameBoy. I had rented it from a video rental store and got lost in Mt. Moon, but I was having so much fun that I bought a strategy guide just so I could keep going! Shortly afterwards I bought the game myself and have bought each new version in the first week since! They are so addictive!
