Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 are now out in the Land of the Rising Sun. To celebrate, we’ve caught three different staffers to talk about their experiences with the core Pokémon games, from past to present. Some Nintendo fans have always stuck by the series, others have left it behind (perhaps permanently), but when you’re talking about something as prolific as Pokémon, you can be sure that new players are still being born every day. Luckily, Joseph Nelson, Noah Ward, and Michael Contino all fall neatly into these three categories as our resident Pokémaniac, former Pokémaniac, and Pokémon novice respectively. Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, and Unova may all hold different adventures, but when the basic premise of catching Pokémon remains the same, how do their experiences compare?
Read on, and see whether your adventures strike any chords with ours.
