View Full Version : What was the first pokemon you ever got?

August 26th, 2007, 5:08 PM
I posted this thread justto sorta see what the first pokemon people ever got in a game was. That includes starters.
THe very first pokemon i ever got in a game was my Cyndaquil on my pokemon silver version =] Its now a level 98 Typhlosion(i really should train it those last 2 levels). =]

August 26th, 2007, 6:13 PM
same here lol. i got a Cyndaquil also. :)

For one, I don't see the point behind this thread, also, furthermore, it belongs in Pokemon General, not other Pokemon Games.

Excluding starters?

First starter I picked was Charmander in Red Version, because at a young age, naturally, I had an obsession with dinosaurs. The next one I got was a Rattata (I used Tackle over and over to beat Brock's Onix, as I was too young to understand the concept of "elements") and I kept the Raticate throughout the entire game, owning people with it's super-powerful Hyper Fang and Super Fang.

August 26th, 2007, 7:22 PM
My Pikachu in Yellow. Those were the good days. Yes.

Yo same exact thing on Raticate haha Hyperfang and Superfang pwned everyone and everything

I started out with Bulbasaur got a pidgy and rattata and I was set for the whole freakin game!

Charmander on my olde Blue version.

I did know much back then, and I wasn't a huge fan on the starters at all (These days i'm rather fond of Charizard), but it was the second and fourth pokemon I ever used that catapulted me into playing it almost religously. Those pokemon were Rattata and Pikachu.

my first ever Pokemon was Charmander

the first Pokemon i ever caught was an Abra, i remember it well because i had Charmander and Abra trained up to level 26 each, not had them evolved and i was trying to beat Surge and struggled badly because i was too stubborn to catch an ugly rock pokemon :embarrass

August 26th, 2007, 9:48 PM

In Red I started with Squirtle, caught a Pikachu in Viridian Forest and then caught no Pokemon until Snorlax.(Yay! Snorlax!)

In Gold I started with Cyndaquil, and then had my friends trade me eggs of the other two. I then only added an Eevee, now an Umbreon.

In Ruby, I started with Treecko, traded in a Torchic and then only ever caught Shiny Zubat afterwards.

Charmander and then a Weedle near the viridian forest... When it evolved into Beedril I was so happy x).

August 27th, 2007, 12:17 AM
I think it was between Mudkip and Torchic...
Oh yeah right, Mudkip!
I couldn't beat May so Yeah, I switched it into Torchic!
And I caught: A Lotad as my first Pokemon in Emerald :<

August 27th, 2007, 1:07 AM
Either Totodile or Cyndaquil on my Silver game. Silver was my first game ever. ^_^
Next Pokemon would probably be Pidgey or Hoothoot.

August 27th, 2007, 1:27 AM

August 27th, 2007, 5:34 PM
including:Bulbasaur....yeap, the NO.1 pokemon!

excluding: pikachu....very lucky, as he's pretty rare in that forest.

August 28th, 2007, 10:51 AM
My very first pokemon was squirtle in red. Then I caught a pidgey and it was my favourite pokemon. And this was when i was like 6 so it was my only pokemon.=P It was lvl 40 at Lt. Surge, then i got gold and forgot about red.

August 28th, 2007, 11:00 AM
Bulbasaur... and then a Pidgey, in my super-used blue. Good old times.

August 29th, 2007, 5:42 PM
The first Pokémon I ever got was Totodile in the Gold version I shared with my brother.

August 29th, 2007, 6:10 PM
Bulbasaur in Blue Version! I still remember his moveset and the hardships we endured to this very day. :)

August 29th, 2007, 7:24 PM
My first Pokemon was Charmander on my sister's Red Version. I originally wanted to pick Bulbasaur because I had heard that Bulbasaur was good for beginners, but my sister told me that Bulbasaur was her favourite and I couldn't pick it as long as I was playing her game. So I picked Charmander instead. This was way back in 1998.
I think some of the other Pokemon I trained back in the early game files were, for the most part, basic run-of-the-mill wild Pokemon - i.e. Rattata, Pidgey, Butterfree, Oddish...

August 29th, 2007, 8:45 PM
Torchic from Pokemon Ruby. I didn't exactly come in at the start of the series, I was a bit late. But he just..Well, I don't consider him my real first Pokemon for many reasons..

My first was Squritle from Pokemon Blue, which was soon followed by Pidgey. I never really played Pokemon back then though, so that time wasn't really my first "proper" play through until many months later when I picked it back up and had Pikachu in Yellow.

August 30th, 2007, 5:33 PM
I picked Treecko on my Ruby Version.

August 30th, 2007, 5:54 PM
My first one was Squirtle in my Blue version. When I first started playing Pokemon, the only Pokemon I raised was that Squirtle and I managed to beat the game with it. I had other HM slaves to help me get pass some areas.

August 30th, 2007, 5:56 PM

August 30th, 2007, 6:03 PM
My first game was Silver [I was late with games], and my first starter was Totodile. Three of may favorite Pokemon today are Totodile, Crocinaw, and Feraligatr.
I miss that game so much, desu....

August 30th, 2007, 6:32 PM
My first was Charmander on the Red version. I got the fire red version to and tranfered the charmander he has the same as the first to he is still with me :)

August 30th, 2007, 6:57 PM
Pikachu in Yellow version. I traded it to my Brother's Blue and Evolved it. Then I traded it back and trained it to level 100.

August 30th, 2007, 7:40 PM
charmander in red. that was everyone's favorite pokemon back then!

August 30th, 2007, 8:05 PM
Bulba, but I caught a nidoran female, and it became my starter in blue. I even eventually ditched the venusaur. My nidoqueen was body slammin, blizzarding, mega kicking. Oh yah, those were the days :P.

Pikachu was my first ever Pokemon from the lovely Yellow game! I even remember the first Pokemon I ever caught, a Pidgey! It never left my team and ended up something like a level 80 Pidgeot.

Mine was, Pyre, the Charmander on the original Red version. I still have him, he's a level 100 Charizard now. :classic:

September 1st, 2007, 1:59 PM
I'm PRETTY sure that it was Charmander in Pokemon Red. It might have been Squirtle, though.

September 1st, 2007, 9:03 PM
It was Pikachu in Yellow Version. I remember, because it was my kindergarden graduation, and I got a Purple-see-thru GBC and Yellow Version. It made me soooo happy that I got it. I never really got too good at it.

September 1st, 2007, 11:13 PM
Mine was a Charmander on the original Red, and that's how it all began...

September 2nd, 2007, 9:54 AM
I think the first Pokemon I caught myself was Pikachu.My brother gave me his red version which he had a whole team set up for.Since I really liked Pikachu at the time, I went to go catch it and train it to a high level.I felt cool for playing a Pokemon game for the first time.

September 2nd, 2007, 12:30 PM
my first was bulbasaur or squirtle i am leaning more toward bulbasaur
for blue version

i still remember my first team. which was raichu, articuno, venasaur, mewtwo, eh.. i want to say lapras and i frogot the last but i use to make mewtwo do 3 amnesias and then use recover and use psychic . it was a one hit knock out. oh to be young again sigh*

September 2nd, 2007, 12:47 PM
Mine was Squirtle in Red, I picked it because I liked his cry best. The first one I caught was Pidgey. I didn't like Ratatta so I didn't use it.

September 2nd, 2007, 1:52 PM
Aipom.. c'mon! he's a monkey! :D
