PokéFact: Blast From The Past

I'm sorry guys, but this post has to be a short one. I final exams this week and I don't have as much time as I usually do and everything is just stupid. (Don't you miss being in high school?) I'll try to make it up to you though. Next weeks post may be a long one and in this post I'll do multiple mini facts that a lot of you probably already know (sue me!), but it's better than nothing, right? Though I do give you permission to hate me, if you don't already. (:

Clean the dust off your Game Boys, because today facts are going to be about Red and Blue, which if you remember came out way back in 1998 and you should be please to know that I was already born during that time. I was only two at the time, but I was alive and well, which should count for something! And now time for the facts:

In Red and Blue, you were able to use a fishing rod on the Rhydon statues. However, nothing was found unless you used an Old Rod. Ninetales' name was originally spelled as "Nine Tales" in some early copies of the game. Some beta versions of Red and Blue list Machamp's original name as "Ju-Doh." The Nidorino that appears in Professor Oak's introduction has the cry of a Nidorina. Red and Blue only use 37 completely unique sound clips for cries. The sounds are played back in different ways for each Pokemon. And finally, they collectively are the best selling (non-bundled) game of all time.

This has nothing to do with the post, I found this on Tumblr and just though it was pretty amazing. I wish I had a snorlax bean bag. Steven, add that to my birthday list :DWell,  hopefully that should please you until next week when I can actually take the time to pos instead of not sleeping. Also before I go, I want to know what your first Pokemon game was (I'm sure their is a discussion about it, but pshh whatever, I'm cooler). For me, I am pretty sure it was Red. I am not positive, because I grew up with Pokemon in my life and I am sure I stole a Game Boy from one of my older siblings, so it really could've been Red or Blue. I also remember Yellow quiet well, but I am pretty sure it was Red. Our Blue game was lost far too soon. I am stop rambling and go to bed now. Night guys, see you all sometime next week. (:
