So what exactly do you want us to discuss in this thread? That was rather just a statement.

Oh, I see. You should have said ;D

I've been playing Pokémon since GSC, when I was...11 or 12 I guess. Quite a time. And I started watching the anime earlier than that.

I don't remember the launch of RBY =(

I don't remember the launch of RBY, but I remember the first game I had was Blue. I always picked squirtle as my starter too. Then once GSC was released, I got Silver. Then I liked all three of the starters.

Since I was...*counts*...about seven, I think :D My first pokemon EVA was the bulbasaur that I chose on my brother's red version, before I got blue. That was before we knew there was only one save file XD My first on my own game was a squirtle and the first that i caught was a rattata in both of them :D

I think the first one that I ever caught was a Rattata too. But Blastoise was always my favorite.

That the age when strategy didn't matter and I only had one strong pokemon. The rest were just HM Buffs. >.>

I always train mine as equally as I can, and always have xD
Though usually I'll concentrate on one for a while that's particularly good for the next gym.

My first pokemon ever was Cyndaquil on Gold Version.

The first console I played on was a silver gameboy color

I've played Pokemon since I was about 7 or 8 years old maybe? I am 17 now. My first console was GBC and I got Gameboy blue. I started off with a Charmander as my first pokemon and it stayed in my party ever since. I was in love with the games then and I still am now, I have been a fanatic for as long as I have known lol, I am mature but pokemon definatly brings out another side in me.

But GSC has only been out ten years . . .

I first played when I was about eight. It was Pokemon Blue, and I loved it to bits. I played it on a purple GBC. A few years ago, though, my sister lost both in Australia. My first ever Pokemon was a Squirtle, and I raised it to about level 78. My next highest was the level 3 Pidgey I caught on Route 1. Yes, and I beat the Elite 4 and Champion with that.

2)Cyndaquil! I'm going to "reincarnate" him when HG/SS are released.
3) The Gameboy Colour.

Guess what, here's yet another Gen II starter.
I started playing on my friends GBC when I was around 9, so I guess that's 8 years of pokemon's worth for me.
I was SOO happy when I finally got my own GameBoy with a Pikachu on it and Pokemon Crystal, that was just pure... awesome. I loved that game, and I'm more crazy and anxious about DG/DS than I've been with any other game. Man, this is huge! :D

Oh, and I tried to make the game a challenge, so I solo'd it with Chickorita :D (Bugsy's Scyther was a nightmare, I'd tell you -.-)

I've been playing pokemon since I was about 11-12. I remember that my sister watched the anime on TV before going to school. My friends at lunch had a pokemon strategy book, so I got into it and bought Red and Blue. My first pokemon was Charmander. It was my favorite pokemon. I always chose the starter pokemon that evolved into the pokemon on the box, so I picked Charmander for Red and Squirtle for Blue. It turned out well because I didn't really like Bulbasaur. I ended up playing Bulbasaur for Leaf Green.

Those were the good old days when Game Boy Color was the most advanced handheld gaming system and the sprites were monochromatic. I've played off and on since those 10 years ago. It's amazing how the game has progressed from having odd graphics to Wi-fi capability and shiny pokemon!

-How long have you played?
Since Red/Blue came out in 1999, so 10 years-ish. I have Blue, Yellow (Though i've lost it) and Silver.

-First Pokemon Ever?
I believe my first starter on Blue was Bulbasaur. I could be mistaken, but i'm pretty sure it was.

-What was the first console you played a pokemon game on?
Spoiler:
This bad boy:

10 years to the good and it's still in full working order. I could have sworn it looked bigger when I was 7...

I've been a Pokemon fan over half my life and I got into it pretty much when it came out. @_@; I started out watching the anime before my parents finally caved and bought my brother and I a GBC and Pokemon Red. First Pokemon ever was technically Squirtle since my brother played first but I restarted and picked Charmander for some reason, haha.

I've been a big fan ever since. :D It lulled a bit back during the GBA gen since I didn't really like any of the games and didn't watch the anime but then I got into collecting the IRL merchandise and it jumped back up on the interest scale for me, haha.
