I am overcome with the desire to become the very best, like no one ever was. The source of this desire is the recent Virtual Console release of the original Pokemon Red for GameBoy. I lost countless hours to this game in my youth, and it is one of my deepest regrets that I traded it in at some point. Thankfully, the magicians at Nintendo have finally made it possible for me to relive my lost days as a young Pokemon trainer by making it available on the 3DS. All other gaming has ceased. There is only Pokemon. And this time, I may just try and catch them all.
