Wow...this is a Long story for me :D

I became a Pokemon Fan , about 6 Years ago when i was 7/8. I can remember vaugely , that i had switched on the T.V and Pokemon was on at the time , on the Channel i was on fortunately It was the episode with the Clefairys and the space ship (I have no idea of the name of it , because i can only just remember) and i instantly got captivated by the Anime , and course by Ash and Pikachu LOL ^____^
So i ended up watching the Anime and it carried on from there.... once the Cards came out and every kid was collecting them , i ended up collecting them. And in only half a Year i knew all the Pokemon and their names at the time. I have been a Pokemon Fan ever since i turned on that T.V And i'm glad i did ! And then of course , a few Years ago i turned to Pokeshipping aswell

So whats your Story ? How did you become a Fan ?
Spill the Beans ! >=3

It's clear to me that PC has been absolutely ruined, and I'll never be back. I'd like to thank the few of you who stand with me, especially people like Silent Tattsu and Frostweaver, as they have given me the strength to rise above this place. I need to get on with my life, especially after some of you have perverted and absolutely obliterated the old PC spirit. I'm not welcome here, and if I may say so, I don't care to be here. Just you wait, and PC will be dead. Not the forums themselves, as, at length, was stated in another topic, but the spirit of PC, more important than any individual member or group of members. It's fading fast, and I won't be around when it disappears, leaving an empty shell of a forum filled with members who delight in this new, ruinous order. So I have chosen to be brave and leave, even if it is unpopular or considered un-PC-ish. Well, as far as I'm concerned, I'm about as anti-PC as anyone can get right about now.
Nuff said. I don't need to explain, Kaga says it all. Please don't PM me, since i won't be here to check them. And while your at it stop giving Kaga bad rep points for his sig. One word i-m-m-a-t-u-r-e.

My brother brought home some Pokmon cards one day, and I got to like Pokmon. My love for Pokmon increased when I got that games and was able to watch the T.V. shows at my Dad's [he had cable]. Heh, I'll bet that my brother's kicking himself for bringing those cards home because even though he "grew out" of Pokmon, I still love it. Heh.

Hmm, let's see. I was in 7th grade when I began liking Pokemon...it was actually around the beginning of that school year. About five to six years ago. I was watching TV one day flipping through the channels--I had been watching Monster Rancher after school at the time on FOX and I didn't know what anime was back then--so I came across this girl with purple hair and the animation looked awfully familiar to Monster Rancher's (The episode was "Make Room For Gloom" and the girl was Florinda.) I kind of just watched it to see what it was all about; and, I learned it was Pokemon...something my cousins were already hooked on. Eventually, I watched it everyday after school and I found it more and more entertaining with the characters and all. I soon got swept away in the craze, too! I began playing Pokemon Red on my Game Boy Color when I got it that year for Christmas and many more versions of the game after that...and here I am today! ^_^

Well I started liking Pokemon during the summer before 6th grade, so in 1999. My cousins came over one day because we were going to some party or something. Well anyways they brought over some cards... pokemon cards. I had no idea what they were and they looked so weird to me! But we started playing... kinda. We kinda made up rules since they didn't have a whole lot of cards at the time. Well the cards intrigued me and I wanted some too! So I bought my first card off of my cousin for $0.80 and it was a diglett... I still have that card too! Then I started watching the show after school and I really started to get into it from then on! For Christmas I got Yellow and a GBC and that's when I first started playing the game. Then I got tired of all things Pokemon in 7th-8th grade. Last year however, I was watching American Idol with my sister and when the show ended I flipped to the TV Guide channel to see what else I could watch. I noticed Pokemon was on cartoon network at that time so I decided to watch it for old time's sake... and it was fun trying remember the old episodes. And I started watching it everyday and here I am! Yeah... that's my story!

I began to like it five years ago when I was in the fifth grade...I turned on the TV, began watching Hypno's Naptime, and I was addicted from there on...I actually pretended to be a pokehater for a while to hide the fact that I liked the show, but eventually people found out...I got into the TCG in November 1999 when a kid in my sunday school class gave me three cards, and I began to collect the cards obsessively after that...in January 2000 I got into the game boy game (my first game was pokemon yellow) and I also became obsessed with that...the only thing that I don't care for anymore is the TCG, which I got out of about the middle of 2003 because I hadn't been in a league for two years after they discontinued it...I miss the league more than anything...my haymaker deck was unbeatable ;_;

Well, it was about six years go. I was at the library with my family one day, and my mother said that we could pick out a movie. (Our library has a movie section.) I was looking around, and spotted a tape with this cute little yellow thing on it. I decided to rent it. Once we got home, my brother and I watched the tape. (It was 'Seaside Pikachu'.) We were instantly hooked! We figured out that the show was called Pokmon, and after that we rented almost every single other Pokmon tape that we could find, we bought probably over a $1000 worth of its merchandise, etc. We had to collect the cards, buy all of the toys, everything. And it's still my favorite show! I love it just as much as I did when I first learned about it. I found out that it was made in Japan, and that it was a type of 'Anim'. I've learned about several of my other favorite shows, which happen to be Anim, as well. (Like Tokyo Mew Mew, InuYasha, etc.) So I'm so glad that I found that tape that day!

Geez all of those seem so... alien to my story...

I must owe all my thanks to Lunchables maybe 5 years ago when I was in.... yeah... 1st Grade. I was interested in these weird little dudes on the back of the Lunchables and I started to collect "All 36!" I thought that was all the Pokemon... but then one day I was flipping through channels and I saw the episode in Lavender Town... and I saw Charmander. I was like "That dude aint one of teh 36!" and I found out more about Pokemon.. and then later my brother's friend introduced me to Red and Blue... (he showed me Missing No and I got nightmares ) and later I started gettin the cards and the the games... man I remember being stuck in the Dark Tunnel for like a month. I used to watch the show every morning at 6:30 before school and stuff also..

So yes...

Look at mine Its a kinda weird...

In 1998, a was playing with my lil friends... Once in the other day, they came and started to talk about something, something cool, I decided to hear. They were talking about Pokmon... Yay! They told me what time the show starts in the TV, so I watched. My first episode was that with the Pikachu using gloves, when it fights against Hitmonchan, Primeape's Goodbye and etc... Really Cool So I started to watch episode after episode. 2 years after, I went back to the US and bought a lot of TCG cards In the same year's Xmas, i won a Gameboy Color and Pokmon Blue and Red In my birthday i won Yellow... after that, it was toys, collectibles and etc... I become in 2 years one of the biggest fanatics! Now, all of my friends that liked pkmn are saying that is a 'kid thing'... idiots...

okay, mine was in 3rd grade. I was at Campfire (a sort of after school thing) and I noticed a kid playing a gameboy (I didn't know at the time what a gameboy was) I looked over his shoulder, and noticed what I now identify as a Charizard aginst a Ghost. the thing couldn't move. after that, the group went outside, and we engadged in discussions about this new 'thing'. I started out making fun of pokemon, but now I'm a full fledged fan!

I became a Pokemon fanatic in the late '90s, maybe 1999 (I think I was about 12)? Anyway it all started with a box of Lunchables of all things. I had a couple commercials for Pokemon, but I didn't think it looked interesting. Yet something started in side of me that came out when I saw about 20 little cutout cards of different Pokemon on a Lunchable box. I became very interested and excited about this new thing. My brother and I would just sit in our room and sort them out and admire the unique characters. Very soon after, I saw the anime for the first time. Ironicly, it was the very first episode, and after that I was obsessed. It must have been when Kids WB just started airing the show since they were showing them all in order from ep one and on. After I saw it, I knew what I wanted to do. So I went out to Toys R' Us and bought my first ever Pokemon item: a plush Pikachu in sitting pose, maybe 10" tall. It stills sits on my shelf. So every Saturday when the anime would air I'd watch it, and I became more and more interested. I got more and more collectibles, and learned more and more about the Pokemon world, and eventually got the games and cards as well. And the rest is history I guess.

My brother woke me up one morning telling me there was a new show on TV. I liked it right away, because of Pikachu! I have been a fan ever since!

The year was 1998, and I became interested in cards, I ended up having the biggest collection in the school(posibly the town) and then It gradually grew since we just got a computer/internet, and I built my first site/started researching pokemon more in late '98

PS: Pikachu is the devil, i hate him.

Sounds like most people were first interested in either the show or cards. Myself, I first became interested in fifth grade. I had a reputation in the class as an avid gamer. My friend brought me his Red Version (I had no idea what it was at the time though) and said he was stuck. It was the Elite Four, and I whipped them five ways from Sunday. The game seemed really cool, so I got a Red for Christmas. I was instantly hooked. I didn't start getting interested in the show until about the battle with Koga, before I was too much of an accuracy purist. The card game was actually last, and briefest, in seventh grade. I still love the games, manga and show, to the point where my parents are a bit worried, after I told them recently that I wanted an imported collection of all the movies. They say it's unhealty for someone to be this heavialy into a video game for upwards of five years. But strangely, they don't mind the Legend of Zelda series.

When Pokemon first came out, I despised it. I thought it was so stupid. Around 1999 my little brothers succeeded in sucking me into the phenom, and I got the yellow version. After that I became hooked and started buying the games and watching the shows.

It think I got into it when I was about nine or ten, somewhere around fifth grade, or something, when I picked up my Blue version. I got addicted to it, and then found out there was a television show, and started watching that in the morning. Then it kind of grew from there. I got into the card game around pre-sixth grade, and then it sorta became more than a fad to me. And, well, here I am now. With it as strong as ever, I think.

My story is exactly like ~*Silent Tattsu*~, but the first episode was one that I don't remember the name in English (Something of the PokNinja).
