You could write everything I know about the Pokemon series on one of those really small, rubbish post-it notes. I always felt like I just missed the Pokemon craze on account of being a surly, pretentious teenager when the very first game came out on the Game Boy. I've been playing catch up ever since. Is this the one that could get me enjoying the series?
In September I got the chance to check out Pokemon X and Y. Nintendo brought up the 2DS and that was the game it had in the cartridge slot. It was legitimately my first time playing a Pokemon game ever. "You should try it," said the Nintendo man, "this is a good Pokemon game to get started on." Although he did admit he was a bit biased!
So I guess I'm going to leave it up to you all to convince me: quite honestly I've been looking for a new game to play on my 3DSXL. Is it worth me, as a 32 year old man, having my first Poke-experience with Pokemon X and/or Pokemon Y?
