Question Never played Pokemon before, which one would you recommend?


I have recently bought a 2DS. I did not own a Nintendo handheld console for a long time (my first and only was the Game Boy before).

I have been reading that the Pok?mon games are a big success now...and i was thinking of trying one of them out. I never played any Pok?mon game before.
Which one would you recommend for me?
Thank you for your suggestions

Welcome to the gang :]

Honestly, I would always recommend the newest games, which would be Alpha Sapphire/Omega Ruby. That way it's easiest to find people to discuss, trade and battle with, and also you can participate in whatever events Nintendo comes up with.

They're all easy for newcomers to get into.

Yeah, I would agree with Joba, Ruby and Sapphire always seemed a bit more happy-go-lucky Pokemon games as there are many side objectives like building a base or taking part in competitions. The theme of those games (sea) is also really refreshing and makes the game more enjoyable and casual in my opinion. The remade versions of those two games for the 3DS should be a great choise.
Plus the fact that everyone is talking about them as they are new so you will easily find support in the forums if you get stuck or something.
