Pokemon Black and White is pretty cool. I has 156 (I think) new pokemon. It's basically a new game for the newer generation of fans.

If you want older pokemon, then maybe get Heartgold and Soulsiver. These are the remakes of pokemon Gold and Silver for the gameboy.

I Can vouch for Heart gold and soul silver, fantastic games.

I Wish they would remake Pokemon Yellow for DS (Or 3DS) Though.

Yeah, yellow was awesome. You start put with a pikachu and get all three original starters too.
I'm currently playing it on my Zune HD.

Well im no expert, and to be honest probably a bit old for playing it still but! Basically nintendo release a new version every so often, and the new releases come in pairs e.g
Red & blue
Emeraald & Saphire
Gold & Silver
Pearl & Diamond
White & Black

or summit like that anyay, Each pair are effectively the same generation, the diference between the pair e.g red and blue is that you can only catch certain pokemon in red and certain ones in blue (same of for subsequent pairs) so to catch all the pokemon you need to trade.

They started off with 150 pokemon in red and blue and as the generations went on they created more, currently its at somwhere in the region on 9999999*10^500 i think. each new one created by the designer with a blindfold on and a rusty paintbrush. And names by a feotal baby i can only assume.

But they are very addictive games none the less!
