Happy Birthday Pokemon

On this date (Feb 27th) in 1996 a revolutionary new franchise was born – Pokémon. I don't think anyone could have imagined back then what this behemoth of a franchise would one day become.

I have Diamond, Chaos Black, and Soul Silver loaded on my R4NDS and have enjoyed the series totally, despite the very slow evolution of the game, maybe it's that unchanging nature that keeps me coming back and battling my pokemons and still getting excited when one evolves. The games are great for pick up and play to kill 1/2hr while waiting for a bus etc.

Much has been written over the years about Pokemon, so i'll just say thanks Gamefreak, Nintendo and all my fellow battlers. Happy Birthday.
