I finally went for it.
I bought a New 3DS and have been enjoying Resident Evil Revelations for the past week but I want to change it up a little and get myself accustomed to turn-based games, having never played them before.
Which Pokemon game would you recommend for someone who's never played the series before? Is there are story that links them or something? Why do 2 games come out at one time?

Well you can start with the Remakes. Unfortunately FireRed and Leaf Green are GBA games so you can't go Generation 1. Closest would be The DS(not 3DS) remakes of HeartGold and Soul Silver. Then if you are feeling up to it. 3DS remakes of Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. I'd go with the generations sequentially IMO.

I feel that I'd enjoy later generations more because of graphics and gameplay elements. However, I do want to eventually get into the story if there is one so would playing Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire before HeartGold or SoulSilver sour their experience?

I'd start with Gen 6(X & Y), then go on to ORAS(Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire). Afterwards, if you really want to, you can go play Gen 5(Black and White(and their sequels)). Pokémon games have been coming out with two versions ever since the first Pokémon games. The reason is to get people to communicate and trade/battle with each other. There's no overarching story between the Pokémon games. The only things that link them are the Pokémon and the recurring characters.

They couldn't just include communications and trade systems in one game? I'm guessing someone who has OR can't trade with someone else with OR so that would actually limit player interactions...

I'm thinking about going for X/Y before ORAS because a lot of people seem to think X/Y are better games.

@Blast: I'll see if I can get it c:

Nope. If you have OR, you can trade with anyone else who has OR or AS. There are version exclusive Pokémon, so in order to complete the Pokedex, you have to trade with other people.

@Eat_Pie: Thanks for clearing that one up. I guess I'll pick OR/AS as my first pokemon and then X/Y if I enjoy it.

Cheers for the help guys
