Man do I love that original old art
Thanks for sharing these photos! I completely forgot about the manual, this really brings me back. Hopefully I can dig mine up next time I visit my family.
No problem! I loved flicking through it and thought some others might enjoy looking back at some of the pictures I really enjoy the fact back in the day they gave us a proper manual with instructions, tips, artwork etc. Nowadays even if you buy a hard copy of a game often all it has inside is a game code and maybe some sort of printed advert for another game.
Every couple of years I restart my red or blue version and catch all 150 pokemon. I found the manual a couple years ago untouched in a pile of old inserts from other games in my house. Love the nostalgia man.
I think I need to pick up a copy of these games again so I can do this too, would be fun to play through again.
That’s really cool. I don’t have those anymore, much to my chagrin. I do still have the old Nintendo Power guide for Red/Blue. That guide had the most bizarre party recommendations, but I really liked the stickers that you could use to mark off which Pokemon you had caught. I liked the sheet too much to ever use them, though.
