I have no idea who originally painted this so I cannot give them credit. A shame because this is awesome stuff. Reminds me of when the Hildebrandt bros did the Marvel Universe.

I think I'm the only person in the gaming world who doesn't know what a pokeman is. I once believed it was a Japanese cartoon but then heard it was also a video game, though I'm not sure it was a U.S. video game.

I like Pokemon in general but I'm only really familiar with the first generation of Pokemon. Once they started adding new ones I was lost. My daughter however really likes them so I get to see a lot of the new ones, which I particular do not like design wise. I think the originals were awesome and fun, but to me it seems that this is just a another victim of corporate greed and the new designs were half assed. They started with like 150? Now there are like over 500 so some of the designs are cool but most just fall short.

When I first saw Skylanders I thought for sure they would do this same treatment for Pokemon.

Realistic art for Pokemon would turn me away from the games. Where was that option?
Amazing work it has to be said. Going to be showing a few people this.

Personally, I LOVE me some Pokemon, putting 200+ hours in to each of the first few series.

I played Pokemon Stadium and Pokémon snap on the N64 loved the Pokemon Snap but couldn't really get into Stadium for some reason.. But I did complete Pokémon Red for the Gameboy as much as I could. I did have anyone to trade for other versions of Pokémon and you needed to traded with people who had Blue and Yellow in order to "collect" them all.. That sort of turned me off all that work and I could complete my collection...maybe that's the root of my collecting/completion problems.

B8, playing those games is like saying you played Mario games because you played Mario Party and Mario Strikers. Pokemon Red however, is a proper Pokemon game. The way those games work, and to encourage kids to trade together is there are always to games released, then much later there is a GOTY edition almost that includes all of the Pokemon. In the original series, Pokemon Red and Pokemon Blue were the two games, much later Yellow came out. The same thing has continued to happen throughout the sequels (Gold/Silver then Platinum, Diamond/Pearl then Emerald, etc).

Personally, I always just had two copies and traded with myself. I had my master version, and I'd use the other game to 'feed' it missing pokemon, legendaries, items, whatever. Then my son, who was trying to play with me but too young at the time, I'd just give good stuff to so he could impress his friends.

Oh well, I didn't know that Yellow was considered a GOTY or that it had all the Pokemon inclusive.. Good to know.

Mario Strikers, Pokemon Snap, Halo Assault, Banjo Nuts & Bolts, etc are not 'mainline' or 'proper' games in a series. So if I ever asked you, "What do you think of the paint mechanic in Mario Sunshine?", you know damn well I mean in the context of "real Mario" games. But if I asked, "Fsh, you're a racing guy, should I get Sonic Racers?", you also know I'm asking compared to other kart racers, not to Sonic titles. So in this conversation, saying you've played Pokemon Snap or Pokemon Pinball (both awesome games btw), does not mean you played a "Pokemon" game.

Now, it does mean you played a game in the Pokemon series, which would qualify you for the "Gotta catch them all" badge here. Game series here doesn't mean mainline, it's anything with the characters or world apparently on a whatever Eric feels like today. Its a dictatorship, but granted he wants to keep us peasants happy so if we cry to much he can be influenced, but everything I've seen in the past two years says Eric calls the shots, especially when it comes to badges or anything related like the game series.

Seriously, I expect this crap from futiles, not from you :P
