    I cannot argue that there are times I miss the first generation. Some of my favorites stem from back then (Eevee and its original evolutions). Even now though, the original 151 get a lot of love in the competitive field.
    Finally, a new generation of Pokemon for us to enjoy. There is much to look forward to in 2011!

    A few of them are found in the OU category. The team I am presently designing is actually based around Raichu. I cannot say much more as it is a work in progress and only a portion of the team is done.

    Most of the time, if I feel there is a lack of one Pokemon, I do try to use it in a team.

    OU category? Whats that? And teams? Sounds like you get very technical about this kind of stuff.

    I do get that way, but it does help show the strategy in the game. Even in Red/Yellow/Blue Mewtwo was not invincible, most like very hard to take down for most and very impossible for some.

    The original games offer a very different experience too. The game was fairly simple back then too without all the stats of today or all the types. I miss that the most, just a simpler set up to deal with.

    Ahhh, the Ruins of Alph, formerly the Alph Ruins. It is all all for Unown, the alphabet Pokemon. It lets you understand the various "hieroglyphics" that are written using the shapes of Unown. After a little practice, it is not too hard to get without too much difficulty. Took me a little while to get it though.

    I never went anywhere without my old Gameboy and pokemon blue. I still try and some of the originals into my teams in the newer games when i can. Rhyhorn is always in there for me. I kinda wish they just stuck with the old 5 HM's. Having 4 water ones was a killer.

    I don't remember flash ever being a Tm... Rock smash was in G/S/C.

    But while on the subject of building teams, did any of you ever try to beat the battle frontier in emerald. I am currently trying to train my team.

    Salamence
    Tyranitar
    Blissey

    old school? i've still got my original R/B & G/S in an old Pokemon TCG tin

    My current "old school" team?

    Dragonite (Choice Band):
    Fire Punch
    Waterfall
    Earthquake
    Outrage

    Alakazam (Choice Scarf)
    Psychic
    Shadow Ball
    Focus Blast
    Grass Knot

    Charizard (Flame Plate)
    Wing Attack
    Flare Bitz
    Belly Drum
    Substitute

    Arcanine (Life Orb)
    ExtremeSpeed
    Thunder Fang
    Crunch
    Flare Blitz

    Marowak (Thick Club. move list needs work)
    Bomemerang
    Earthquake
    Double-edge
    Thrash

    and a level 23 Tauros i'm not done raising.

    as you can probably guess, i'm not one for any strategy that doesn't involve hitting as hard and fast as you possibly can.

    Dragonite is just an incredible beatstick for pure damage and Charizard's "substitute>belly drum>flare blitz" can deal a ludicrous amount of pain if it goes off. Thick Club allows marowak's nice 250 attack value to double.

    no team of mine wouldn't be complete without my all-time fav psychic pokemon, who when i first got him in Red and kept the tradition alive in Pearl & Heart Gold, always seems to beat the league with both hands (not that he needs them) behind his back: Alakazam! oh how i loves me some glass cannons!

    now, that doesn't mean i don't like the new ones. i wouldn't dream of trying to catch them all without Gallade's help (i've bred him to have a very nice moveset specifically tailored for catching mons) or traveling minus the Bibarel brothers (7TMs + Headbutt between them both).

    plus, some of the newer ones like Dusknoir are pretty cool and once i can get a decent movelist i'll definitely be raising one. and i also need to get started on training Team Rotom.
