I saw the anime on Sky One. I didn't think it was a big deal until I got the game & found out how amazing it was.

I first became a Pokemon fan in...I want to say 1998. <.< I first caught wind of it when I saw an episode of it on TV. X3 I think it was the one where the whole group got stuck on an island with all those giant robotic Pokemon. :33 After that, I was totally hooked. XD

I began collecting and trading cards with kids in my class, then I got my very first Pokemon game - Pokemon Silver. =3 And to this day I still have my cards, although I don't do anything with them. XD; And I still have all my Pokemon games as well. :33

The only thing I've really grown out of is the anime. It's just a bit too repetitive to keep me interested. ;

Well, I forgot the exact year I first became a fan (It was that long ago)...
One year for Christmas, my stepbrother recieved Red as a present, and something so he could play it on the SNES. So, I would watch him (when he let me), and I thought it was so awesome. I always wanted to play, but I couldn't. So a year or so after that, on my birthday, I got a Gameboy Color (yellow), Yellow, and Blue. I've been hooked on the games since

As for the anime, I first got into it...I forgot o_o; I saw it on TV and liked it, so I started watching it on a regular basis. I haven't really stopped watching it.

It's the same for me also. When Pokemon first came out, I went and bought Blue version. Oh my god it was weird at first but now I'm so interested in it. I still play the cards at school with some friends. I have every version except Crystal and Leafgreen. It's funny how I was always the center of attention when it came down to pokemon. guess that's what happens when your a nerd in pokemon.

In '97, my brother started playing the game, and when he showed me his book of pokmon, I became interested in them. When my friends at school began trading cards, I got hooked on those for a while too.:D

Hmm... I saw an ad of it in a magazine, wanted to know how it was, and was immediately hooked. I'm not as obsessed with it as I used to be... besides Flannery, of course. =O

i got into it because a japanese student who moved here told us about it just as it was airing here. Omg, it was so nice to the advance knowledge. And every single guy played the game. We use to have lunch battles too. *glomps my blastoise* and and during recess, we would pretend to be pokemon. teehee.. it was good times.

i guess this was around.. 2000? *doesn't know*

I used to like it when it first started. Then I forgot about it. But when the GBA games started coming out, my friend was playing with it and she got me addicted to it now.

Well, I first got hooked on Pokemon by reading about it in Nintendo Power. Then, I got this little walkthrough booklet in the magazine and I was sold.

I had a friend who was really into it. I don't know how he knew so much about it, but I assume that he watched the anime or played the game in Japanese, because he was all excited for the US release of Red and Blue. He told me that I should get Blue, because he was getting Red. On the day it came out, he bought Red and let me play it. I got really excited, and went out to buy Blue later that week. So, I've been a Pokemon fan since its US beginning.

I think it was 98' when I saw me first anime epi.
It was quite entertaining at first,so I continued watching.
Then,I figured that I might as well try out the darn new games that all the boys in class were hooked onto,bought Yellow Version,loved it,and been a fan ever since!

When I saw the ad on tv for the Red and Blue versions of the games I just knew I had to play it because I have never seen anything like it before and when the anime came out it became a habbit to watch it as soon as I got home from school, when the cards came out I went and bought the starter deck.

It started of when I was at the age of 6 when the anim came out, first I thought it was a little weird and pointless, but I didn't have anything better to do on sunday mornings so I got hooked and watching pokemon became a habit for me, then I heard about the pokemon gameboy games and of course I went and bought pokemon blue That's how it all started.

I became a pokmon fan when my uncle gave me a Pokmon Gold for my birthday.
I was about 6-7 years old. The anime was on for months when I watched it. I started watching it every Saturday for the rest of my life. (I am in Florida)
