Basic question, what is your favorite Pokemon within the first generation games? Red, Green, Blue, and Yellow.
Me personally, mine is Raticate. Simply because when I first started playing my first ever Pokemon game which was Red version back in the 1990s, Raticate was not only a rare Pokemon to catch, but he was one of the strongest back then.
I remember when I was walking through the route on my way to Vermillion city, I got extremely lucky and ran into a Raticate. However, it took me about a month or two to capture him. After I caught him, he helped me through the entire game. Raticate may be the underdog in today's generation, but he will always remain in my heart. Even until this day, I still think of my Raticate! It's saddens me that in today's Pokemon games, Raticate is so simple to catch. Yet, back in my days, Raticate was so much of a challenge. Eh!!
