pokemon is a well known rpg series originally made for the gameboy in 1996. it allows you to befriend, travel, and battle with cool creatures.
i actually got into pokemon way later than most (2012) and the first two games i played on emulator were emerald and red. later that year i found a copy of platinum and i was addicted after that, although i wasn't able to beat the elite four i spent tons of time on the game. the next year for my birthday i got white 2 which became the first pokemon game i beat 100% and the only one i've ever completed the entire pokedex for. in 2013, i also played a bootleg known as "vietnamese crystal" in which the translation is poorly done and very hilarious. every pokemon was mistranslated - "oud kee" comes from sentret's entry!
