I never use traded pokemon, so never had the problem. Maybe when I was like 12 back in the R/B days, before even yellow.
This. Raise your own Pokemon and you won't have that problem.
Props for using Solrock.
Kind of a underused Pokemon.
Okay, my love for Pokemon has been resurrected because of this thread. Been looking up the pokemon that came out after Crystal and I'm interested. Sadly, I'll have to wait until my B-day for a DS due to no money. (that's the latest one right? I had a GB Color with Pikachu and Pichu on it, so I have no clue about handhelds after that)
Agreed. I'm thinking of playing my Pokemon Crystal again.
Pokemon Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald came out after Pokemon Crystal, along with Pokemon Fire Red and Leaf Green (remakes of Pokemon Red and Blue). Those are all the gen 3 Pokemon games and you can play them on a Gameboy Advance, but sadly not a Gameboy color.
Then came Pokemon Diamond, Pearl and Platinum and those were released for the DS, along with Heart Gold and Soul Silver (remakes of Pokemon Gold and Silver). Then those were followed by Pokemon Black and White, and Pokemon Black and White 2, also for the DS.
And the new Pokemon game in development, Pokemon X and Y, will be for the 3DS.
Hope this helped.
