As many of you know, Pokémon is releasing the Gen I games on 3DS virtual console in honor of their 20th anniversary. What do you think of it? Likes? Dislikes?

I honestly would pick Red, because it was the first video game I ever picked up in my life.
Apparently pokemon bank works
and the pokemon bank capabilities is a nice touch
Normally I would pick squirtle, but if you really wanted a Gen 6 competitive beginner you would probably go with Bulbasaur or Charmander.

I chose Bulba because fuck Brock, Misty & Surge. I chose Blue because I already have X and Alpha Sapphire so why not.
Currently, my team is Venusaur, Gyrados and Ninetales. I'm just at the part where you wake up Snorlax. I also have a couple HM slaves and I'm going to round off the team with Chansey, Tauros and Articuno.
One thing I do wonder is how the Pokémon Bank/Transfer to Sun/Moon is going to work, since 'mons in these games have different stat structures. My guess is that they're going to be assigned random natures and a new set of IVs, and begin with EVs of 0 in all categories. If they really wanted to be fancy, they might make all transferred Pokémon get their hidden abilities as an added touch and incentive for doing it over you power-bred soulless death machines in VCG.
