Game: Pokémon Blue
Start Date: April 3rd, 2012
Runtime: 19 hours
Pokémon has come a long way since it’s initial creation back in the 90’s, and in the video game world, it all started with this game (along with the Red and Yellow versions of course). Allow me to walk you through the scenario; you are a young kid, you live next to the world’s most popular expert in Pokémon, who has a grandson who is the biggest jerk in the universe, and one fateful day, you are not only given a Pokémon of your own, but also the permission to travel on a grand adventure with you and your Pokémon friends. This notion made kids around the world go crazy for Pokémon, and this was the start of it all!
At this point in time, including games I would later replay, this was the 50th playthrough I did on my channel, and to celebrate this milestone, I wanted to do something big! I had wanted to do something with Pokémon for a very long time, but I didn’t want it to be anything small or “expected.” So for my 50th project, not only did I play my first Pokémon game, but I added the challenge of trying to catch all 150 Pokemon. This was an endeavor that I do not regret in any way, shape or form, as it led to one of my most enjoyable projects, for not just you guys, but also myself. I had started doubting that I would ever have a playthrough as good as The Simpsons: Hit and Run, until I played Pokémon.
