"Oh wow, Pokemon HeartGold!"
I plucked the shining game package from the torn wrapping paper, a grin stretched across my face.
Though I had already played SoulSilver a few months earlier, I was eager to start fresh, and play as a different character with new Pokemon to control.
That's why I asked for it for my 18th birthday. I was as excited as a child, and instantly started my new game.
Being used to a dark, underwater atmosphere, I smiled a bit when I saw the pixelated Ho-oh flying across the HeartGold title screen, its wings sparkling in the sunlight.
I began my game with the name "Gold". Original, I know. But as a reader of the Pokemon Adventures manga, I wanted to name the game characters after their comic counterparts. My rival was named Silver, and I chose Cyndaquil as my starter.
After wishing my in-game mom goodbye, I began my virtual adventure. Though I've been playing these games since Red and Blue days, I've always experienced a thrill when each game starts.
