How/when it happened? Pokémon Episode 32 - The Ninja Poké-Showdown (1998, 8 years old)
What did I feel
This stuff really got me into Pokémon as no other thing, I became instantly addicted to it. This could be a world where anything can happen, where I could get over everything and find a way to be less sad. I used to believe it could be true for a while, hehe.
Do I still feel that way? No, now I know it can't be true, but whenever I feel like there's no escape for my problems, I look at the Artworks, play a little cards or games, read Pokémon Special and forget every bad feeling. It's my therapy nowadays.
Do I still feel that way? No, I got used to new Gens, and a new one is just a matter of time for me to love it. *See below why it isn't happening with 5th Gen.
How/when it happened? Reading a Pokémon Magazine from my country. (March 2001, 11 years old)
Do I still feel that way? Yes, I'm always expecting for new things to come, I want to learn everything I can about Pokémon. I really want it to be forever in my life, because no other thing could give me a life.
Actually my amusement was so huge that I found out some possible English names for it. An axious guy like me couldn't wait for its English name to be revealed. By simple logic, I had two "proofs" for it to be Laxbe. I never said it was Laxbe, just put a "Go! Laxbe!" in my signature here in PC and people started believing it was true. (Like that translation for Junichi Masuda I made as a joke, and some believed it.) Here you'll find websites from Poland, Mexico and even my country, Brazil revealing it as Laxbe instead of Munchlax. I think this is the only huge thing I made in my whole life. That's why Gen IV means so much to me. Even Serebii got bothered by that:
Do I still feel that way? Maybe. Although I became a baby Pokémon lover, I think I was hoping for more from it. The first impression I had about DS wasn't compatible with Diamond/Pearl. But HGSS made it worthy, I think.
How/when it happened? Checking on PokéBeach (3 days ago, 20 years old)
Do I still feel that way? It hasn't changed in three days. I just ask for a little time before I can get used to it. I won't change my mind to look friendly with Zor-lovers, but only when Zoroark gets me. Don't wait for anything else before it.
What is the point in voicing that kind of opinions, no one but you care. Your worst than Robin Williams.(Comedian)
So for a definite the fire starter will be part of the Chinese Zodiac.
