I opened my GBS and put my FireRed game in.I never played the original games, and I didn't really like the new games much. I skipped through the intro and went to the continue screen (or at least that's what I call it) and looked at my info. I had all the Gym badges and I was the champion. My time showed that I'd played the game for 208 hours total, and I had almost all the pokemon. I was proud of myself, even though I knew rotting my brain on a video game in which you fight cute little monsters for 208 hours when I could have been doing something useful wasn't much of an achievement.
I pressed continue, and my sprite showed up in The buildings of celadon city. I opened up the menu and flew on my charzard to cinnabar Island. I quickly healed my pokemon and headed into pokemon mansion, armed with multiple repels, so I wouldn't have to worry about wild pokemon. I looked at a few of the journals scattered around the mansion, almost being able to quote them word for word.
