Pokemon Yellow Version, my cousin gave it to me because I only had one game on my Gamboy at the time (Super Mario Land) which I finished several times. Then began my addiction to Pokemon games haha...

Ruby and Sapphire are my first Pokemon games. They were the games that got me into the gaming side of Pokemon.

Pokemon Silver and Pokemon Gold. Got them both for my eighth birthday along with my Gameboy Color. Since the first one I put into the gameboy and started playing was Silver I guess that one would have to be my very first.

My very first is the Pokemon Yellow; Then Gold before I actually bought Red because I've always liked the Charizard picture on the Pokemon Red cartridge but I was too young to know that Red and Blue were released before Yellow. My dad was the one whom bought Yellow alongside my first Gameboy Colour.

Pokemon Dash is technically the first Pokemon game I got, it came with a DS Lite I bought online. I never really played it that much though. Then I played Pokemon Ruby on an emulator, but something messed up in the emulator and my game never saved. So I finally got Pokemon Soul Silver this January, and that's the first real Pokemon game I ever got, I suppose.

My first game was Yellow, I got it along with my first GBA one christmas when I was either 7 or 8. Got me hooked and is why my favorite pokemon is Pikachu. <3

Haven't missed any of the series since except B2/W2. I'm going to have it and play it after I play X.

Hmmm, I think technically, our (I shared with my brother) first was the Pokémon Trading Card Game for GameBoy. But as for the main series, Gold, because we were afraid to ask for one of the Gen I games earlier. =P Ah, good memories with that Gold...

My first was Pokémon FireRed. My parents wouldn't let me get a Gameboy Color, so I was stuck waiting until I was 10 to FINALLY get my Gameboy Advanced. It was the best Christmas ever :')

My first game was Emerald. I loved it so much. I miss good ol' Hoenn.
I chose Treecko then, when I was like 4, 5, or 6. Then my brother went and lost it. :l

Good day.

Pokémon Gold

I know my sister had it and allowed me to play the game on her gameboy.. I don't remember how she got it though.. probably a birthday or something.

But yeah, that was my first pokémon game.. I think I was around 4 or 5 years old?

And I had lotsa fun with it.. Specially combined with the pokémon anime which I was a big fan of at the time.
At first I was planning putting a big picture of a Gogoat here.

But then I realized that one picture would take more space then most of the posts I'll make..

Pokémon Ruby. I'd been a fan of Pokémon for longer than that and did have a Game Boy Color, but for some reason I never was interested in the games until years later.

Pokemon Red when I was 8 years old. I've never missed a generation, and I've never stopped playing! :3

Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire were my first Pokémon games. Shortly after, I got every other game including the ones that released before Ruby/Sapphire (Red, Blue, Gold, Silver, and Crystal) Haha! Ruby/Sapphire was my first step into playing the games even though I had been watching the animé for a lot longer. The Generation III Hoenn games remain my favourite series so far. I'm still hoping for a remake!

Either Emerald or Sapphire. I got it from my sister in law when I was 7. I had 2 shinies and a level 100 Blaziken, but my friend restarted it thinking it was my extra copy.

Pokemon conquest is awesome
