First Generation. Obviously it was the first generation I was introduced to Pokemon in general (the anime, the games, etc). However it was the 2nd generation that solidified my interest in it. :3

First with Blue. I started at the very beginning, which shows my age some. :\

I loved the anime and remember watching all first episodes. I can't really remember not loving pokemon. I'd watch it, draw pokemon, play with pokemon toys, have imaginary pokemon to play with, but nobody ever told me there were GAMES! I was 7/8 when my uncle game me pokemon silver. I loved that game, but sucked at it. About a year later I got Ruby and Sapphire,Firered and leafgreen and then Emerald which was the first game I ever actually finished. (I had a thing about restarting my games all the time)

I'm actually proud to say that I started playing Pokemon around the time of GSC. My cousin gave me my first ever Pokemon Game on the GBC, being Gold and I was hooked on Pokemon since. (Excluding the fact that I was introduced to the TCG waaay before that.)

My very first game was Silver. A very vivid memory tagged along with it as well: I had a level 70+ Fearow, a level 50+ Feraligatr and five other level 2-3 team members at the Pokemon league. Lolol.

First. For me it has always been a video game series before anything else.
Though the TCG always appealed, I've still never played it proper.

Gen I for me! I got into the anime right away and the TCG a bit later. But I didn't actually start playing until Gen III with Emerald. And honestly, I was so against it at first- didn't like the 'mon, didn't know the region, was quite against it because I blamed Hoenn as a whole for Misty leaving lmfao. My first playthrough was a mess- my brother's friend did a lot of it for me because he was a bit controlling and I was baffled- but my second was amazing and wow I do remember the exact moment I fell in love with Gen III and Pokémon as a game series. <3

The first generation was mine, it barely seems as long ago as it was. Me and my brother got Pokemon Blue and Red respectively, and we would always play together. On days in the afternoon, new episodes of Indigo League would come on Heck, I still remember going to see Pokemon: The First Movie and getting special TCG cards for it. Those certainly were good days.

I have to say, looking back, 4Kids put a TON of work into the localization of that season. For all of the bad things you would expect them to do, they did a lot of good for the Indigo League (as well as seasons 2 and 3).

Gen I here. I grew up playing Blue version while my twin brother played Red version. We would trade, battle, and mess around with the link cable (like disconnecting it during a battle just to see what would happen lol) all the time. The two of us would get the opposite version, but he finally stopped playing in Gen IV. Now, I just buy all/most of the main versions myself.
Even if it's a short life, burn hot and bright and overtake the moment. That's my way of life.

I was a baby when the Pokemon anime came out, so Gen I introduced me to Pokemon, but I did not get any of the games until Gen IV, my first game being Pokemon Diamond. (Not counting the times I "borrowed" my little brother's Sapphire and Pearl)

Sapphire was my first Pokemon game, and after I finished it I begged my parents to get me Emerald. I later went back a generation and got Gold, Crystal, and Yellow. I remember also very distinctly playing Mystery Dungeon frequently I think I got into Pokemon a couple years before Gen 4.

Technically, my first Pokemon game was FireRed (which I've since lost), but I was only very young when I got it and so I don't consider that the first game I seriously "played". Diamond would be more fitting, as I actually knew what I was doing with it and got seriously engrossed in it (I ended up getting about ~350 Pokemon before my save file corrupted).

My first generation was Gen I! I started out with Yellow and haven't stopped since. Back then, Pokémon like Pikachu and Onix were absolutely fascinating to me because they were just so different to anything I'd ever experienced, but now looking back they're just the tip of the Pokémon iceberg in diversity. Pokémon has come a long way since Gen I but I've followed the franchise the whole time and I'm loving the progress they've made. Gen V was a bit... ehhh... but holding out hope for Gen VI!

I was first introduced to Pokemon with the first generation, since I believe my brother got Pokemon Blue for his birthday when he was 6 or something, so it was both the first Pokemon game and the first game I played. And while I've always loved everything about the first generation; the region, the Pokemon, etc., the second generation is actually my favourite. I always had more fun with Johto, and Silver was also the first game I didn't have to share with anyone, and thus it was the one I played the most, and with the experiences I had, it became my favourite generation. I also liked the seasons of the anime that took place in Johto the most, which is just adds to it all.

Congrats on being the only person ever to train a Fearow!

My first game was Pokémon Gold, which I first played at the age of 6 I believe. I don't really remember much from when I was that young, except that I really enjoyed the game and that everyone at school were playing which made it even more fun. Gen II, yay!

My first game was Pokémon Yellow and i got it when I was 5. Since I didn't understand a word of English by then, I took months to complete the game and many many weeks to realise how to get into Saffron City >.>

The first Pokemon game I owned was Pokemon Colosseum, sad to say. I've played many others before then, most notably Pokemon Yellow. I've been with Pokemon since Generation 1, so I like to look back and see how Pokemon has changed since then.

Generation 1, I was around 11 when I got my copy of Pokemon Red. The Kanto region will always be my favorite due to good memories & such.
