pokemon dungeon or whatever is the newest one i think, but it's just a spinoff. if ur talking about the classic pokemon rpg's then emerald is the latest (released like last year i think)

What about the FireRed and LeafGreen stuff? Are those newer?

Fire Red and Leaf Green are remakes of the original Red and Blue.  They were actually released before Emerald, but have better graphics, menu's and a few other things.  If you want to get back into Pokemon, they're really the games to get.  The nostalgia is great, but it's all updated with better graphics, and things brought into it in later games, such as abilities and holding items, etc.  There's even a new set of Islands you get to travel to after you beat the Elite Four, where you can catch a lot of the Pokemon that were available in Gold and Silver.

Fire Red/Leaf Green are great to play, where as Emerald feels like a cheap update of Ruby and Sapphire with bad animations added in and a few features slapped on at the end.

But weren't Yellow/Crystal the same thing?

I wonder what the Diamond/Pearl equivalent cash-in will be called... They're starting to run out of things to name them after.

Adamantine, hopefully. And no they aren't, there are still tons of names to give them.

What will you do?

They basically were, but they had more worthwhile features.  Yellow was vastly different, including a lot of elements from the anime.  The little Pikachu following you wass awesome.  Guess it didn't appeal to everyone.  And Crystal had really nice animations, and a more indepth story about Suicune.

Emerald really doesn't add anything of value, unless you're a hardcore trainer.  It's animations are just done by sprite morphing, which looks really ugly.  Most of the Pokemon just jump up and down and shake their heads.  Almost everything else it added is for EV training.  The Battle Frontier is supposed to be their for a "real" challenge, but it's completely ruined by the fact the computer very obviously cheats - always sending out a Pokemon that's super effective against yours, their teams are created based on your weaknesses, and they often use attacks that aren't just super effective against yours, but super effective on the Pokemon you're just about to switch in..  hmm..

That sounds interesting in a way so does it work like you say have Swampert the game will send out a plant Pokemon just to be sure. Also is the opponents team decided before the battle starts or is the next pokemon to be sent out determined based on how the battle is going?

The battle frontier cheats? :o It never did that with me, and I got all the symbols.

Something weird is happening to my old fire red cartridge. I guess the hex values are busted, cause only female pokemon appear. I've never touched the thing with any sort of cheating device, so whats up?  :P Plus I really was hoping the magikarp would be male (the one you get from the fishy-lookin' guy in the pokecenter outside mt moon.) For breeding. Unfortunatly, It is female, and thus useless in terms of breeding.  >:( This happened to anyone else?!

Useless?  ???
But don't males only pass on their moves? And doesn't Magikarp only know Splash and Tackle? :-\

You think I'd breed it right after I got it?  ::) plus, magikarp eventually learns flail.  :P And magikarp can't inherit moves.

Why would anyone possibly want to breed Magicarp?
Not a winner anymore.

Why couldn't they just have kept it simple, instead of making hundreds of new games and cards. I had the ambition to collect all the cards and play through all the games, but I gave up years ago :/

Ignore the card game, the spin-of games, the really bad anime, and the other annoying parts of the franchise.  Just stick with the main RPG's and you'll be fine, they're only released every four years or so, not counting the the updated third versions, or Fire Red/Leaf Green, which were remake.
