The first Pokemon game I played was Gale of Darkness, I was so stupid then. I remember when I got stuck in the lab (In the desert area, I don't remember what the name was.) and I wound up over-leveling my team. XD Good times, good times.

So how about everyone else?

My first Pokemon game was Pokemon Silver Version. I was in love with that game, and I still am. GSC graphics were epic and classic, and the music was just GOSH!

I played through that game a gazillion times :3

Pokemon Blue was the first one I called mine. Though my brother got the Red version first.

First Pokemon game? Probably Pokemon Emerald, to be honest.. or Sapphire. I played those when I was younger.. (didn't grow up with the older ones) so yeah. Emerald and Sapphire forever hold a special place in my heart. <3 I'm pretty sure those are the first ones I played. If not, Pokemon Blue, years after it was released, haha..

Mine was Pokemon Blue. I got it when it first came out, and my lil' bro got Red. Wow, I remember playing in high school when it was new. It wasn't super popular yet so I only had 2-3 friends who played it. Heh! I remember the day when Missingno. came out. That was a day of crashing GameBoys and lots of fun and mystery.

Wow, that was a really long time ago. ;3

My first game was pokemon Red. I think that's where I got my favoritism toward the color.
I also got a spanish copy of blue, don't ask me how I got it because I honestly don't remember.

My first game was Pokémon Red. My older brother got Pokémon Blue. I almost skipped over the second generation when my brother stopped playing, though. Almost. Silver got me.

Wasn't there a thread like this? Maybe similar.

The first game I played was Pokemon Red back when it came out. It was in French and I don't speak French, so all I did was go forward and kick butts with my Venusaur, until I reached Vermillion City...

For me, it was Pokemon Gold. I loved it so much! It was unlike anything I had played before. It's still one of my favourite games in the series. So HeartGold had alot of nostalgia value for me.

The first game I ever played was my cousin's Red, I should thank him so so much for giving me the chance to play his Gameboy! it wasn't so popular back. But the game got to me, so I asked my mom to get me a Gameboy and a pokemon game, so she got me Pokemon Yellow and that was the first pokemon game I owned =')

I was so happy back then omg.... I had no clue that this passion for pokemon would stay in me for all this time!

My first game was Red but I don't remember much beyond Brock and Misty being impossible for me to defeat for a good while.
Nowadays I don't even know how I could lose to them. I miss losing often, in a way; it made the game last a lot longer.

The first game that I actually played was my cousin's Yellow, which I borrowed for about a month when I was younger. I was already hooked on the show and the cards, and I knew then that I needed to get one of the games for myself.

Fast forward to my 9th birthday, and I got my very own Pokemon Gold. I can't even begin to count how many hours I put into that thing, but even though my original save file is long gone, I'm glad to say that the battery is running in it nearly 10 years later.
