i was actually introduced to it through a demo tape from Nintendo. But as soon as I got the tape i wrote it off as something stupid. Over the next few weeks my sister had told me about the cartoon. I watched my demo tape, watched a few episodes and found I was interested. I bought a video and few cards and it continued on from there.

oh... I started listen it in summer 1999. It started by my brothers. They liked Pokemon, not me. Than my brother forced me to watch it. Than the pokemon that I liked is Pikachu. So I started to watch it more and more... Now my brothers don't like Pokemon, but they play games sometimes. The reason of my brothers is it's always the same time. Team Rocket always wants Pikachu. They always failed. When Pikachu fall down of the balloon, he's always being catch by Ash and he never fall next to Ash, always in his arms. One thing I have to admit is it's getting boring with Team Rocket.

I discovered Pokemon when I was around ten years old. Oo; I discovered it when my dad brought me a lil handhld pinball game. It had the Pokemon label, so I became interested. oO;

But now I'm pretty much over with Pokemon, its boring. x.x; I just like the games, that's it. Oh, and the hot guys on Pokemon. >3 Mostly the gym leaders. XD; I really now dislike Ash for some reason o.o;

A friend of mine known as Mullet up here is thinking the sme thing. The redundancy of Team Rocket seems to ruin the show.

*thinks* The first time I've seen pokemon was when I moved here to Florida... which was about 8 years ago. Anyway's about 1-2 years later I was looking through the T.V channels, and came across Pokemon... The first episode I saw that day was when Misty, and Ash were on there way to deliver medicine to some pokemon center for some sick pokemon. I think it was the one when they were stoped by a bike gang on a bridge...

I saw the TV show on UPN (before it came to WB >p) and at first I thought "eh this is kind of dumb" just by glancing at it, but then my sister got into it and had me watch some episodes... I was like, this is kind of cute and addicting! so for my birthday I got a gameboy pocket and pokemon red. mind you this was all in 5th grade, I'm now about to go into 11th 9_9

I discovered Pokemon waaay back when I was in the 5th grade. My lil sis brought home a few cards one of her classmates gave her (Pikachu, Ekans, and Pidgey) and gave the Ekans to me.

I was soon totally addicted. I bought more and more. Soon, I had the cards, games, and even a few videos (since I don't get the WB)

I am still as obsessed as I was then!

Not to argue, but pokemon started on wb. It hasn't been anywhere else except cartoon network and that is only rescently.

Yeah he's right........ I discovered pokemon when My Friend and his cousin traded pokemon cards, and I was like ah, whatever, but when he got blue and his cousin got red, and I played it, I wanted it. I bought Blue, got the cards and got hooked. I sold my pokemon cards a long time ago, when nobody cared about the cards anymore.

August 3rd, 2004, 12:36 PM
I got it like this:

I was leaving school (1'st grade) Until I found a Pokemon Blue version near the bus stop! I had a GameBoy Color! So I played it at home and that was when I started to like Pokemon! I was the first one to have it in my neighborhood! So then I told my friend about it then my friend told other people and so on it went through my neighborhood. I got to learn about the cards right after I found Blue! Then I got to know the games for other station than GB. Then I got to know about G/S/C. Then I learned about the GBA and then Ruby/Sapp. Then I learned about GBASP and the Colloseum and so on... That's how I got it!

no, sorry. the first 40 episodes were shown on UPN before they were given to the WB. I know what I'm talking about. I taped them all as well, so I can go back and watch them and see the little UPN logo in the corner. o_o; maybe it was only where I live or something similar, but yes, they were.

but i found pokemon out from a friend of mine who asked me if i was going to buy it before i even knew what it was. (this' before it was released) and i said i dunno, and then he bough it (blue version) the first or second day it was released and i saw him play it, it looked awesome, and i bought it later that week.

It was 1998 and I was 6 years old. I had gone to Milwaukee to see some relatives and was watching TV when I saw the first three episodes of Pokemon. I've loved it ever since. I remember pretending my grandmother's pillows were Pikachu to the point where I nearly ripped one and had to get an actual Pikachu plushie. LOL. And I don't think Pikachu is a stupid rat but I don't like to argue so I won't say any more on the subject.

One day when I went over to my friends house, he had a copy of Pokemon Red, and was playing it in his room. I was curious as to what it was, so I while I watching him play it, I asked what it is, and he said Pokemon Red (duh =p). After observing him play it, and even play it myself for a while, I got really interested in it and asked my dad if I could get it for my 9th birthday (I think it was my 9th birthday, but I'm not exactly sure). Well, to my surprise, my friend was the one who got it for me! But it was POkemon Blue, not Red.

And that's the story about how I came to discover Pokemon..

The year was 1999, and I was 11 years old. I was in 5th grade, and I was playing in the schoolyard. I saw a couple other kids on a bench, and they were playing their GBs. Having been a GB fan for a few years, I was curious to see what they were playing, and I was excited to see what it was. I had never seen this type of game play before- walking around and battling. Over the course of a few days, I continued to check out what they were playing. It then occurred to me that I could be playing the game at home, and I asked them what the game was - it was Pokmon Blue. I asked them if I could give the game a try, and I think I was able to capture a Psyduck on my first try. That event led to me buying the game which then led to discovering the TV show. That's how I discovered Pokmon - I don't think I'll ever regret it.

Eh I discovered pokemon some 5-6 or so years ago... I was in 3rd grade and my friends were talking about his weird cartoon with these monsters called pokemon. They said it be on at like 6 in the morning every day so I decided to catch an episode. The rest, as they say, is history.

hmm, I started watching the series when I was six. My cousin came over and brought some of his tapes and he told me to sit down and watch some. I actually remember the first episode I ever watched. It was the one where Ash gets Charmander (It was even brand new then lol). What is is called? "The Stray Charmander?" Anyway, he got me interested in the series and I started to watch it. The second episode I watched was the one where all of Ash's pokemon are stranded on the island and I couldn't read what they were saying. Good times...

My older brother was like... 6 when he entered his first Pokemon Card Chamionship and he was really good. (He even got several badges!) and then a year later I watched him play and I thought it seemed cool. (i was really young) and i started to play some of my brothers RPG games and I was hooked.

HA! Absolutely love this. One of my oldest topics in PC, from 2004...

And I never imagined I'd be closing my own topic four years after. Brings back good memories!

Thanks, whoever revived it!

Just don't do it again!
