In kindergarten I played Yellow all the time. My teacher had a copy and it was so fun! We never saved the game, though, so we always had to start from the beginning.

No they weren't.
I started playing Pokémon in August 2008, so Explorers of Darkness became my big entree into Pokémon gaming.

Interesting, what made you play EoD first instead of another Pokégame?

Well, actually it was a coincidence.
I had to choose between Diamond or EoD Darkness, and I chose Darkness for these reasons:


-The boxart looked great. (Was still a noob then.)
-The in-game screenshots were catchy.
-Diamond just looked boring in my first opinion.

Oh okay :D

I would probably do the same if given the choice unknowingly tbh

Indeed they were! More specifically Pokemon Blue Version. I received the game along with a purple Gameboy Color for my birthday from my parents and from that moment forward I was addicted to Pokemon. I loved that game so much and I can remember every single event from it despite me being so young. Some of the most memorable ones were me not being able to exit my house at the start of the game, encountering and catching my first Pokemon both of which were Pidgeys, defeating Team Rocket, and completing the Pokedex with my final Pokemon being Vaporeon that my brother graciously let me have.

I started with Red version long ago. I have played it through so many times. I remember catching a missingno and immediately turning the game boy off cause I was afraid it would delete everything :D

Pokemon Blue was my first game, period. Got it with my Game Boy Color in 1998 I don't remember the occasion for Blue, but I will never forget getting Yellow the following Christmas and thinking it was the coolest thing ever.

Pokemon Yellow was my first game ever. Starting my journey off with Pikachu inspired me to get a tattoo of a Pikachu on my forearm and I love how it turned out ^,^

The answer is an absolute 'yes'. It was Red, then Blue, then Yellow. Bulbasaur served me well as my first partner, then Squirtle in Blue, then, of course, all of em in Yellow. I was ten, the spring air was gusty, but sweet when it wasn't. Sakura may have bloomed, but not where I lived. It was a series of adventures that I vaguely recall. I can always replay them, with even more fantastic results, with the addition of Gameshark.

Yeah, I'm not as much of an expert as an adult that played the old games when they came out, who have decent understanding of what they were doing, but waaay more experience than all the kids out there who were 10 when Rb/S/E came out. For us retro junkies, R/B/Y will always remain true.

I got a GameBoy Pocket and Pokemon Red version for my 10th birthday, April 7th 1999.

I wanted red because my other friends had blue.

I later got blue and yellow.

I've replayed red and blue dozens of times. I eventually got to the point where I could beat red or blue in one day.

So yes, red was my first.

I got blue with my old classic grey Gameboy... I really don't remember how I got it, maybe I bought it with Christmas money?

I always spent my Christmas money on games.

Gen 1 was indeed my first. I got Blue for my birthday, and it was love from then on.

I recieved Pokemon Yellow as a get well gift but I didn't play it much because I liked yugioh more. But then I played more and enjoyed it. Then my friend gave me her blue version and my other friend gave me his red version. A lot of memories wrapped in these 3 carts

My first game was Red. I recall it being an unofficial solo-run by Charizard since I didn't know better at that time. I tell you, sending Lv. 6-ish Rattatas against Blaine wasn't fun.

To this day, Pokemon Red was the only game I legitimately owned (though I have played hacks here and there). Good times. . . . I developed my own team that was super-effective against all the types at the time, but I don't remember it so much now :\ I think some of them were Hitmonlee and Jolteon (Jolteon and I go WAY back ).
