The literal last time I ever played/have seen a Pokemon game was back in 1998/99 when red/blue/yellow were released.
I own a 3DS XL. It's also my first handheld since the GameBoy Color and I never played a Pokemon game that was designed to display color.
This gives me access to Pokemon Black & White 1 + 2 and the upcoming Pokemon X + Y.
My question is this; Do I really need to play the ones before it, or can I just jump back in ?
I know it's obviously gone through many many changes, as well as there obviously being an enormous amount of Pokemon now.
I guess to some degree I feel overwhelmed, although I'm sure it just feels that way since I haven't paid attention to that series in 14/15 years and it's had regular entries.
Pokemon sure has come a long way since the last time I paid attention to it.
