Your first Pokémon.
How would you want to receive your first Pokémon? Be creative!

Esper April 5th, 2013 10:32 AM

I'd want to rescue it from a shelter. I imagine that having a Pokemon isn't just keeping it in a ball and taking it out whenever I feel like it, but actually taking care of it like a real pet and that some people wouldn't be able to handle that and would want to get rid of their Pokemon and for whatever reasons some wouldn't be able to cope in the wild. Lots would probably end up in shelters. I'd want to find one that seems like it would need a home and also one that looks friendly and like it would take to me.

id jump of a helicopter rescue it from death and catch it mid air.

Save it from being attacked from savage wild Pokémon.

While I'm walking around the woods I saw an injured Pokemon. It's a Zorua I came and picked it up and brought it to a nearby Pokemon Center. After that Zorua leaves the Pokemon Center after getting healed going to the woods again. I follow Zorua only to find out he was captured by Pokemon poachers. So when the night came I tried to go to Zorua's Cage quietly. And I freed Zorua but the poachers woke up, and the only choice was for me to battle them using Zorua and we won and we became best friends since then. :3

Either catch it myself and raise it from the ground up, or rescue it from something like a shelter, I guess. Of course, there's always the tried and tested way of visiting your local professor...

I would love to rescue one from a shelter! I find that idea to be so appealing, to have a Pokemon shelter in which you can adopt Pokemon and raise them to be strong. I don't think I would be able to have pokemon in real life and treat them just like I do when I'm playing the games. Not to say that I'm mean to them or anything, but I don't want to let any of them sit in the PC in real life.

I would like to get it by bonding with it as a child. Say, just for example, a wounded Deoxys is near my house(because Deoxys is my favorite Pokemon), and I treat it with the help of my family, and later on in life, when I become 10 or so, we set off on a journey. That would be my ideal way of receiving my first Pokemon.

The curious little Leafeon who'd been following me as I study the strange flora in the area would, would bravely save me from being eaten by a wild, and hungry Victreebel, after running for our lives, we'd both find ourselves in unknown territory forming a bond from attempting to survive in the harsh jungle.

Catching it myself...After running away from 8192 random encounters and finally finding a shiny. >3

I'd want to adopt the Psyduck cared by Mr. Fuji in Lavender Town. I'd name him Quackers & we'd be best buddies for life x3

Since getting a Pokemon at a Pokemon lab isn't all that exciting, I'd like to think that I'd get an egg from the local Gym Leader, which I would care for until it hatched. As I raised it from a baby to a fully capable Pokemon, I would make sure to have my first Gym battle with that same Gym Leader, so our first journey could come full circle before we started off on a new one.

Cherrim April 19th, 2013 12:37 PM

I would want to find the egg, sort of nestled away so that it's safe but not so much that it's in an obvious nest. I'd check on it a few times a day, noting that there were never any parents around and worrying about it. Eventually, I'd figure out that it didn't have anyone to look after it and take things into my own hands. It would hatch into an adorable Pokemon that I'd love to have around (so, you know, no Aipom eggs or anything) and we'd be best buds.

Sweets Witch April 20th, 2013 8:39 PM

I'd like winning it in a contest. Like, "Oh hey congrats on drinking that gallon of milk without puking! Here's a Petilil."

And then I drag it with me on a half-baked adventure.

PichuRules4ever April 27th, 2013 6:33 AM

I would like to walk home one day and find an egg under a tree. i would look at it, look around, then look back at the egg. I would pick up and keep walking towards my house. by the time i get to my house the egg would hatch into a Pichu (with Volt Tackle and Thunder). I would yell "awesome" and run inside my house to hang out with my new Pichu. I would raise it from there. :t172:

Somniac April 27th, 2013 7:05 AM

It would burst out of a cake on my birthday, and then we would eat cake together, and the cake would be good.

GrayJM9 April 27th, 2013 7:45 AM

I would rescue it from a shelter just like I did with my dog.

XtinaIsMeLuvinWWE May 18th, 2013 8:26 AM

I would have seen it for the first time say on a TV show or something, and then made it my mission to get myself one. When I came of age, I would travel to the region it was in (probably in a group so they could protect me with their pokémon lol), then when I finally catch one it'll be so much sweeter cause I waited that wee bit longer to get it :)

XeroNos May 20th, 2013 11:34 PM

I want him when I am in grieve danger and suddenly he leaps from no where and helps me defeat those who were after me. And then I would be it's trainer for life

SilverFox230 July 28th, 2013 11:03 PM

How I picture getting my first pokemon is exploring a forest. Just walking through it when out of the bushes a raging ursaring appears. Then I run, I get away from it. It begins to storm and I am lost, So I wander into a den. Now freezing I collect the driest sticks available. In the den I spot a shiny, little, abandoned vulpix. She keeps me warm through the night and follows me home. And that would be how I would want to find my first pokemon.

Brendino July 28th, 2013 11:16 PM

Sorry, but there's a one-month bump limit on old threads, so I'm going to have to lock this up. Feel free to create a new thread if you want to continue discussing the topic, though.
