The first Pokemon game I ever played was Pokemon Blue. It was where I started certain Pokemon traditions that have pretty much followed to this day.

My first Pokemon game was Diamond. Relatively late in the series, but whatever. I absolutely loved getting through Mt. Coronet, ignoring the Golbats and Galactic Grunts. Dialga was my first ever legendary, and I've always found Dialga cool since I first met it.

It was probably Pokémon Stadium actually but my first hand-held game experience was on Silver The copy belonged to my brother and he let me train up a couple of his team cause I think he'd got sick of grinding lol, then after he was done with his file he let me start my own game and OH MY WORD, what a game to start on lol After that I went back and got Yellow and have played pretty much ever since

That would be Yellow; I was a bit late to the party, but oh well. I got it the year it was released along with a GBC...and then I was tormented by Brock for months until I got Red for my birthday, finished it, and traded over my level 100 Blastoise to finally beat him and blaze through the rest of the game with it and my level 40something Pikachu (how I still wasn't able to beat Brock with it being at that level, I will never know).

I still have it and last I checked, it still works.

My first game was Red. Even though Blue is my favorite color, and Blastoise is my favorite Pokémon (and I knew I wanted one before getting my game), I opted for Red because that's what all of my friends had (I was pretty late getting into Pokémon, so everyone else already owned it). Evidently, we missed the whole idea of getting different versions to trade for version exclusives and the like. I got into Pokémon over the summer, and saved up to get Red in August. (Actually, my mom said that if I counted and rolled her change for her, I could use whatever money I counted to get the game. I think she thought I'd get bored relatively quickly, but I went through all of the change she had [lots of pennies!], and only had to pay a few dollars out-of-pocket.)

I started my game, picked up my Squirtle, and headed out of Pallet Town on that fateful day nearly fifteen years ago. It's been an amazing journey ever since.

The first Pokémon game I played was the Red version my parents gave my younger brother for his 9th birthday. Being his big brother and the one with the most gaming experience in the house, I was the one tasked with helping him whenever he got stuck. XD

I got a Blue version of my own later that year at Christmas because of how much I loved the game. :P

Pokemon Yellow was my first game ever! My parents got it for me, along with the Gameboy Color, for Christmas. They probably regret it XD

My first Pokemon game was the original Red, which I played when I was around 3-4 o.o I somehow got it from my older brother, don't really know how he got it... but whatever. I remember that I first chose Squirtle, and, after time, I stuck with Charmander lol
Hacks that I like:

I also like Pokemon Glazed, Pokemon FireRed Throwback Edition, Pokemon Twisted Mind, Pokemon: The Fae Stones, Pokemon Expert Emerald, Pokemon Sigma Emerald, Pokemon Crystaldust, Pokemon Steam (Shining Waters/Hazing Flames. Side note: they are in need of scripters) and many more I forgot to mention.
United by blood and fate.

This isn't said that much (probably, I don't know), but I would like to give every ROM Hacker my sincerest thanks, as they all work so hard to build the games that we play. Since they work so hard, I think that we players should respect what they do by giving them support as well as being patient while they work. If you want to see a taste of what they do, I suggest you head over to the R&D section of ROM Hacking. Again, I would like to give every ROM hacker my thanks, and I hope that everything goes well, from flags to tables to offsets to patches.

Ah, Pokemon Sapphire. Funny story though.

Originally, I wanted the newest games that where out... which at the time where Mystery Dungeon Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team!

I wanted to get Blue Rescue Team, because blue is my favorite color, and it was on the DS and it just felt like it would be better... and yeah. Oh, and did I mention I wanted it for my birthday in January?

Oh yeah, I got a Pokemon game for my birthday, and was some sort of blue. but it wasn't Blue Rescue Team. It was Sapphire. Somehow my dad mixed it up. I was pissed for a while, but I eventually spent enough time playing it that I got hooked.

a few months later, Diamond and Pearl came out. I was gonna get Diamond, but switched to Pearl at the last minute, pretty much starting my tradition of always getting the second version.

Never did get Blue Rescue Team...

My first ever Pokemon game was Silver, and I loved it. Don't remember if I ever completed the game, but I know that I was hooked. I had come in contact with the franchise thanks to one of my childhood friends' coloring books that I tampered with while at their house. I'm glad my parents bought me Silver, because if they didn't I'm not sure I'd be into Pokemon as much as I am now. :]
