ME TOO! 8D How romantic! XD
But I did eventually get into it. When Pokemon was having a sneak premier of it's 2000 movie, I can even remember myself sitting in front of my small tv, cheering at the huge crowd of people and the guy on the stage complaining about how people called it "Pokeman". Ah, those were the days!

I didn't even know of its existence until the first season of the anime, and even then, It was kind of an on-off type thing, in fact for a while, I thought it was kind of babyish, but just recently, I've really gotten into it.

......I've been in it ever since the very moment it hit the US...I was one of the first to own cards...but not the games. In fact, there were some kids playing it in the playground and looking at cards at school and when I asked to try it they simply brushed me off...I eventually got them...Yet, if I knew they still played and I were to battle them now, I don't care how strong they would have become--I would CRUSH THEM!!!! AND MY CARD COLLECTION WOULD MAKE THEIRS LOOK LIKE A STARTER DECK'S WORTH!!!!!!!!! MUWAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Until the Anime popped up on US soil, I always thought that Pokémon was a puzzle-like game from the commercials I've seen. Remember the vacuum cleaner sucking up all the Pokémon, including a Pikachu off a curtain? (man, I'm suprised that I remember that!) I thought that 'catching 'em all' refered to blocks...

Well, I've been hooked since the Anime, and I regreted that I didn't start the TCG sooner, or else I'd be a collecting fool. Thing about card games is that I want to be there for the first set of cards so that I can customize them for the future. Oh well.

I also wished I could have obtained the Mangas released in US when they were first out. I have absolutely no clue about the series...

I remember flipping through the channels and seeing it, I had thought it was kind of stupid (unfortunatly for me) now I wish I had gotten more into it when it first came out, I'm desperate to find a manga! Does anyone know where you can find one?

Meh.. I saw a screening of Pokemon Movie 1 once with a few friends who bugged me into seeing it.
Since then I've been addicted, well, I began playing Silver right after seeing the movie. Boy was I a game n00b then.

Um... yes. I got all the games and saw the TV show a lot. And the sad thing is...

I was a Junior in high school when Pokemon came out. *hides*

I was most definitly sucked into it then. Then I grew out of it for a while, now I'm back into it, funny how life works.

Life doesn't need to be funny to enjoy Pokemon. =P

A lot of people I knew grew out of it, and hate it now. Heh...

It sure helps if you view life as a funny thing, though!

Oddly enough, my friends know that I support Pokémon, though they don't even try to insult me. They still don't support it, though.

Exactly!!! A funny life is a fun life...

I have friends and Members of my anime club who know I like Pokemon, and they respect it enought to not make to much fun of me either.:D

I got suck into it too. I funny too. I was reading an article. (I was a nerd back then) The aritcle was about a show called pokemon that was making people sick (Polygon episode) in this other country and that it was being shown in the US. I was going, "How are they showing that show here if it making people sick!!"

Then I was channel surfing and I saw the show was on. I was, "Hey it that show that making people sick!!!" I stay to watch and was strange little show. I did find Pikachu cute and that what made me stay. The episode was Blain vs Ash part one. I then stay to watch it as a viewer and got a little into the games. I got suck in but wasn't spit out.

I was only about 5 when Pokemon came out. All my friends were talking about it and I had no idea what it was about. One day two of my friends were talking about Poliwhirl...Well I thought they were saying "polyworld" I'm like "Polyworld? Is that where the Pokemon live or somthing?" So I started watching it...And I got majorly hooked, and I still am. I probably will never grow out of Pokemon. It's one of the greatest things in the world!
