Out of the Fourth Generation of Pokemon Gaming, what was your first ever captured Pokemon. (This excludes starters!) What was your first ever capture within HGSS? DPPt? Can you remember?

To be totally down to earth, I can't remember. But it'd probably have to be either Shinx or Starly in DPPt and either Pidey or Sentret in HGSS. Out of the generation as a whole, I'd place a bet on either Shinx or Starly due the fact that I had bought and played Diamond, before I got my hands on Heart Gold.

My first capture in SoulSilver was a Rattata.

In both Pearl and Platinum it was a Starly.

For HeartGold, the first Pokemon that I ever caught was Caterpie. It ended up becoming the leader of my team throughout the game, and it's one of the only Pokemon I've actually taken time to train up to level 100.

I'm having a hard time remembering what my first capture was in Platinum, even though I started it after HeartGold. I'm thinking that it was Bidoof, though, because I know I caught one just north of Jubilife, before I really did anything in the city. It was terribly difficult to train, but did manage to be my HM slave for a small while until I found a much higher leveled Bibarel to replace it.

In Heart Gold it was Bellsprout.

Wow... that's hard...
I know it was in Pearl... but if it was Starly or Bidoof, that's something I cannot recall...
In SS it was probably Pidgey or Sentret.

I don't care much about first captures as they usually aren't the ones that I use.

In SoulSilver I started the game at night time or the beginning of night times so my first capture has a Hoothoot; which I actually used through my gameplay.

In Diamond my first capture was Shinx which I also used in my team.

I actually started a new game in SouSilver today because I felt like it and my first capture was a Bellsprout which I will soon evolve into a Victrebell when that one trainer in the route under Goldernrod City give me my Leaf Stone.

In both Pearl and Platinum it was a Shinx. In Pearl it made it into my in-game team. I even killed multiple Starly and Bidoof beforehand to ensure my first capture would be Shinx so I'm pretty confident that it was my first capture.

My first in Pearl + Platinum was Starly. I loved Staraptor as it proved very useful so thats a plus. In SoulSilver it was Pidgey I think... I can't really remember. But I don't really remember getting a Sentret or a Bellsprout, due to the fact they aren't very good.

The first-ever Pokemon I caught in Gen IV was Bidoof, much to my annoyance. Since then, strangely enough, I've run into more Bidoof than Starly in D/P/Pt.

In both Pearl and Platinum I would always catch a Starly, knowing it would become useful in late-game.

As for HGSS, it was a Pidgey, for the same reasons.

Come to think of it, I believe I always catch a flying type first.

In HG it was a Mareep because I'd already played GS and I knew what team I wanted and where to get them, but for Pearl I caught literally everything I came across first time so I'm guessing it was either a Bidoof or Starly xD Although I seem to remember it being a Kricketot which only knew Bide so I got rid of it to use something cooler like a derpface Bidoof.

For Platinum I think from memory it was a Bidoof or starly xD. Must of been either one,Bidoof for HM Purposes and Starly just because I thought it's final evolution looked cool :D.

And Heartgold,I'm going to guess Mareep since it's the first electric type and generally I catch those.
pineapples are cool.

From Platinum, Starly or Bidoof.
From SS it was Bellsprout.

In Diamond I think I caught a shinx first (I may have caught a starly before it, but I'm pretty sure it was shinx)

In Heartgold I believe it was a mareep.

I think. XD
