Anyway, I'm excited! My relation to that gen is funny; I stopped playing the games after second gen, up until HS/SS, but Ruby/Sapphire seemed pretty cool. I actually started going on Serebii.net right around third gen, and I stayed up-to-date about the new games. I used to have my younger cousin's R/S game guide, and I'd leaf through it for fun. Years later, when he grew out of Pokemon and eventually started letting me have his old games and toys, he gave me his old Sapphire version.
I already had a soft spot for a lot of the designs - most of my minor favourite Pokemon are from Hoenn, like Grovyle, Blaziken, Electrike and Breloom. It was cool to play Sapphire, having owned Colosseum and XD: Gale of Darkness on the Gamecube, and I finally got the cable to play between them last year. Sapphire is neat, but there is definitely room for improvement, so I look forward to seeing what they do with the remakes.
Anyhow, here is the second batch of for my Pokemon cupcakedex!
