While reading through the Old School Game Boy Games thread, I noticed that a few people have kept their old Pokémon games for gameboy. I still have Pokémon Red. Whether you had Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue, or another Pokémon game, I am sure you are familiar with the opening of the game. In the beginning, you are allowed to choose one Pokémon to start the game off with, a water type (Squirtle), grass type (Bulbasaur), or fire type (Charmander). I always chose Squirtle, each and every time I played the game. While not very effective against the grass-type Pokémon seen at the beginning of the game, I found that Squirtle was pretty effective against most other Pokemon, especially the rock type seen in the first cave of the game. Did you mix it up while starting a new game of Pokémon by choosing differently each time, or did you always choose the same Pokémon to start with? Which one did you choose, and why?
