since when do cards start being illegal?
What do you mean by that? Do you mean when they typically are rotated out of the play-legal format? Or when they first started rotating cards out of official play?

Typically, a card is rotated out of the modified format in August of the year that is 2 years after its last printing. Typically. So, presently, cards from Black & White onward currently compose the modified format.

The earliest banned card to my knowledge was Birthday Pikachu (the Pikachu with the _____ at the beginning of its name). The earliest format rotation happened in 2001, rotating the 4 sets released before Team Rocket.
