Welp, I'll just leave this here while I get some sleep and see what you lot end up deciding on when I get back. Then I'll start up a run of the chosen game and write up the first chapter.
Voted Heart Gold and Soul Silver :).
I'm a "Gen-less" kind of guy, I think all Gens have their fare share of awesome and shit. I do however think of in terms of design, and general ideas that Gen4 is one I particularly don't care for as much as the 5th, or 2nd Gen. They did have some really cool Evos though, in my opinion.
Also, Walkerbro, you need to name me after a pokemon :)
I went with HG/SS because that's the first game I Nuzlocked and I think it has a good amount of content to play around with plus the universal appeal that would make people much more inclined to follow it.
No, it has nothing to do with my and AngelKitten's mutual love for Espeon.
And Broski, Broski.
You know if I catch a Growlithe he will have a British accent and be a badass mother fucker named Drago
Anyway, looks like HG/SS are going to be it, but I'll check back in a few more hours after I wake up again.
Walker - don't really get the concept but Growlithe or Vulpix all the way. Search your feelings, you know it to be true :)
If you gen 2 it, go for the 'Dile, he's a bro.
