    As we all know, Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow were the first entries of the Pokemon franchise. They really are the games that started it all. However, it is now 2018. Many games have come since then, each with updated graphics and features.

    Do you ever replay Red, Blue, or Yellow these days? Or do you find yourself unable to go back to the games?

    I play the VC Red and Yellow, although since I've caught every single Pokemon in the games, I've gotten bored with them. Gen I's post-game is just lacking in general.

    I don’t think it has too much replay value due to the very short postgame. I would only play it for the music or if it’s the VC version, I would catch Pokémon from there and transfer them to Gen 7.

    If my Yellow cartridge didn't die years ago, I'd have probably replayed it a lot more by now. I've been currently replaying Yellow on the VC even though it's actually my brother's, but he hasn't been playing it, so I basically took over lol. I do still enjoy it, but I've been pick-picking at it because grinding Pokémon is just awful in the first gen. I also made it a little hard on myself for not picking out a Flying-type since I just want to evolve the Dragonair to give Dragonite Fly, but Victory Road's the best place to grind Pokémon during the main game.

    So despite its glitchiness and outdated graphics, I think it's a little fun to experience some nostalgia here and there. And also to try and work with some Pokémon you typically wouldn't have touched; for instance, I'm using a Victreebel on the Yellow team because I just didn't want to use Oddish or Bulbasaur. It's serviceable.
