How did you react when Pokemon went FULL COLOR by Gen 2?

    shoz999 Do you wanna try a good Tapu Cocoa? My treat.

    OH MY GOD! THESE NEXT-GEN GRAPHICS LOOK AMAZING! It's... it's... beautiful!

    Pretty much the same as what you mentioned. Thought it was pretty cool. Heck, I still love gen 2. :)

    I wasn't alive when Gen 1 or GS were released, though Crystal was my first game and I thought the graphics looked pretty decent as a kid and I still think they look pretty cool and nostalgic today.

    Apparently I initially didn't want the Gameboy games as a kid for a while because I thought the screens were too small, so I couldn't really tell ya. But Super Gameboy says hi

    I didn't feel too excited since colors meant little to me, although I did like the graphic update in Gen II overall, especially in Crystal thanks to the moving sprites.

    It blew my mind that I could play a game with amazing graphics while on the go.

    Well, I started playing Pokemon games after Generation III came out, but I actually really liked most Generation II sprites (well, in G/S, some were still messed up, such as Feraligatr, Quilava, Sneasel, Spinarak and especially Raikou), as they almost had a painted feel to them.

    Gold was my first Pokemon game so I never thought too much of it. I usually played console games and missed the original gameboy generation so the idea of a portable gaming system not being in color never crossed me at the time

    It was one of the things that excited me the most when waiting for the games to come out. I didn't like that RBY weren't in full colour.

    I had to share a Game Boy Color with my brother, and it was torture having to play Gold on a regular Game Boy while waiting for my turn. So yes, the color made a big difference.

    I don’t remember being too blown away. It feels too similar to Gen I.

    I think the colored sprites of Gen 2 were something of beauty. Looking back I think the Kanto and Johto Starters, Pikachu, Lapras, Legendary Beasts and Birds, and so many more were just well done.

    I liked the colour palette in Gold and Silver but the updated colours in Crystal are what really won me over. That game revamped some of the ugly Pokemon sprites by giving them better designs and colour schemes.

    I had never paid attention because Yellow had some color and I always had a very active imagination or just mentally inserted colors from the anime. I suppose it was impressive back in the day, but it wasn't a "WOW" moment, for sure.

  15. The colour thing was impressive, but it was the other little things that really wowed me. I remember one serious 'oh wow' moment was when you're on the first route and your way is blocked... by other trainers, battling each other. Other people in the world who weren't you were actually having Pokemon battles on-screen! It was crazy.

    I was amazed that the console could handle full color since Silver was my first game for the system and I didn't expect the visuals to be so good. Now they look crappy since time has passed but back in generation 2 it was a big deal.
