    I just remembered something about today. Today was the day the Nintendo game Splatoon hosted a Pokemon themed event, it was three years ago now. This event is a monthly event known as a Splatfest. In this event players have to chose one of two sides, and then they would battle to determine which side is better. The teams were Pokemon Red versus Pokemon Blue (or Pokemon Red versus Pokemon Green if you played in Japan). The Splatfest was to celebrate the 20th annaversary of Pokemon. It was also special because this was the very first global Splatfest, where the players of North America, Europe, and Asia were all tallied up (normally the splatfests are separate from region to region) The winning team is determined by Popularity, Wins, and a point system that is based on both; best out of three wins. Pokemon Red may have been the more popular choice but the fans of Pokemon blue (or green) battled fiercely and won more battles and points. Go team Pokemon Blue! (I thought this would be a fun fact to share to liven up the Poke-hub a little)

    Also happy Mardi Gras!

    Oh, yeah, I actually forgot about that! I missed all of the Splatfests for the first game, but I certainly would have backed Pokemon Blue if I got the chance. Much as I love dragons (if you call Charizard a dragon, what with its typing- I do), and even if Callie's my preferred Squid Sister (she was Red, right?), Blue was the first game in the series I played and possibly the first game I ever played in general, so there's no way I would have not gone for that.

    That was a pretty nice reminder, though, thanks!

    And likewise!

    Like they point out in Splatoon; even if you choose Blue you can still get Charizard, but you can only catch Vulpix in Blue version. Personally I am just blue through and through (pardon the horrible rhyme) I prefer Vulpix and Blastoise.

    Yep, I suppose. Though now that you bring up the starters, considering that Venusaur's my favourite grass-type and Green replaces Blue in Japan, I guess that's another reason for Blue.

    I definitely understand backing Blue for Vulpix, though. Ninetales is a great Pokemon, even if it doesn't have as much power now (unless it has Drought, I assume). Beautiful shiny, too.
