I wrote recently about how, at the age of 30, I took the plunge and picked up a Pokémon game for the first time, jumping in to the current generation’s Pokémon X. This, in turn, led to my wife picking up a copy of Pokémon Y, since she hadn’t played the series since the second or third generation herself. From here, it didn’t take long for my six year old son to gather some interest in what we were doing, peeking over shoulders and asking questions about the games and their monstrous denizens. The timing of Netflix in picking up a whole slew of the Pokémon animated series worked out really well here, and we started putting that on for the kids to keep them entertained, but it wasn’t enough for the little gamer — and so, after some rooting around in forgotten boxes, my wife gave over her old, battered-but-functional Game Boy Color and a freshly-deleted copy of Pokémon Yellow Version.
