My DS Lite is pretty old. There are bits and pieces of it missing. Like some of the touch screen bits are unresponsive or scratched off. So I use for Game Boy games only. Besides the DSi is so much cooler. But that’s not what this is about. This is about my encounter with something I will never forget.
As any normal Saturday morning I woke up late. I mean really late. Like at 2pm. So I made my bed putting all my Pokémon dolls back into place. (I should mention Saturday is when we go to yardsales and fleamarkets.)
Instead of just grabbing breakfast, we went to a restaurant, pretty normal right? After we were finished I excused myself to the bathroom. That’s where I saw it. As I finished washing my hands. I look down to see a Pokémon Yellow game. (And you probably thought I’d find it at some weirdo’s yard sale.) I already had one, but hey, it is a classic.
I hold onto it all day and can’t wait to see if it still works. So as soon as I get home I power up my DS lite and stick it in. (I know the game doesn’t fit in the slot.) It’s fits which is strange to me because the yellow I bought is sitting on the other side of the room in my SP. But I think “Whatever”.
Opening screen same as always. There was no previous saved game on it though. Which was really weird, it had some crazy scratch marks on it. I selected new game.
At first nothing happened and I turned the volume up to see if it was frozen. But then some words popped up. “Would You Like To Transfer From Pokemon Dungeon Explorers Of Darkness?”
Which is odd because you can’t transfer, there is no other generation in that game. But I chose YES. Only because I remembered I had a Dialga for a team mate. I really love Dialga.
As it transferred the team over from the DS cartridge slot, I didn’t stop to think about what the sprites would look like. As soon as the transfer was complete it faded to a red screen. And I heard Dialga’s cry. But it was distorted. And on the screen Primal Dialga fades in. This sprite looked advanced. Even for the unreleased games Black and White.
I am a huge fan of Primal Dialga. So I didn’t really notice at first. Then Primal Palkia faded in next to Dialga. And I sort of had a really bad feeling. The screen flashes to and overview of Japan with the regions that were used for Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, and Shinnoh highlighted in yellow.
It was too advanced for Yellow. It was in astonishing color. And just like in the part were you jump into the distortian world in Platinum, Dialga comes at you. The whole I was sitting there thinking this is awesome!
After that it comes to a scene in Shinnoh, on Iron Island. Everything is crushed. Nothing but flat land and rubble. Riley and Byron’s sprite were there but looked as if they were laying on the ground.
Then to the lighthouse in Sunnyshore. Also in crumbles with Volkners sprite looking as if it’s underwater. Then to the Oreburgh mine. In crumbles, Roarks sprite under what looks to be a rock. It showed all these other highlights of Shinnoh in ruins. At that point I was terrified. This was my favorite batch of Gym Leaders and NPCs.
Then the same with Hoenn and Johto. And when it came to Kanto I held my breath. But it was perfect. Nothing wrong with it. And then the sprites of Primal Dialga and Palkia popped up and seemed to engage in battle.
A Mew and Mewtwo sprite showed up and the text box said “Dialga and Palkia DIED” Not normal. So I laughed it off. But there was no reason to laugh. It flashed to Mt. Silver. Red was buried under some rubble. And all his Pokémon seemed to be trying to dig him out.
The screen faded. And then a sprite I had never seen before came up. He looked as if he was a real photograph and he was angry. He said nothing.
A map of New York popped up. Then a very Pokémon styled map covered it marking towns a places. After that sprites of a Black dragon and a White Dragon came into view. They flashed a few times and turned red. The whole screen turned red.
Very realistic photos of places in New York burning, people dying, and rubble from collapsed building popped up. A world map came up and a three spots in Japan were crossed out and so was a spot in New York.
All the sprites of NPCs and a few important Pokémon came up. Bloody and angry.
The text read.
Do you see…
People get jealous easily.
We are no exception.
I immediately yanked the game card out. And threw it out the window. I have no idea who has it now. But, I never wanted to finish that game. Never.
The previews for Black and White are scaring me and I just wish they’d stop making new generations. I’ve learned my lesson.
But they haven’t.
