I'm sure this belongs in Pokémon General. This should be moved. Anyway, i don't know how long i've been a Pokémon fan, but my first Pokémon game was Blue as well.

Well, I think I've been into Pokemon since I was about 4 or 5 years old, and my first Pokemon Game was Blue...

This doesn't need to be in the DPP section


As for how long I have been playing Pokemon, I would say when I was 4 or 5 and my first game was Blue version.

I wasn't so into Pkmn when it first came out, but I caught on to it when Ruby and Sapphire came out. So I been a fan for like 5 years maybe.

Isn't there a thread about basically the same thing? '-.-

*runs off to find the link... be back in a couple minutes*


Found -it- them...

Here (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=117185), and here (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=135740), though the second one is, from what I know, the original one. The other one should have maybe been closed. *glares at Archuleta Shuckle* : >

Probably about eight or nine years, My first game was Blue, and my collection expanded from there.

3rd grade was when Pokemon came over here, and I remember starting out with the Blue version. So i was around 8 years old. Wow... almost 11 years... that's just crazy.

Let me see here 7 years or so.

8-10 years. Depending on when Red was released in the US.

Hm, I recall watching an episode of the anime on Sky One years and years ago. I say I was about five or six at the time. It wasn't until about a year later that my cousin introduced me to Pokemon Red and Blue. I instantly thought the games were amazing and begged my parent's to let me get the blue version. As I'm a very pursuasive person, I got what I wanted. I was probably around six or seven when I first got interested in Pokemon, maybe younger.

I think it was the year 2000 and my first game was Yellow. The first game I ever played was Red, though, and it belonged to the brother of a friend. This brother used to watch the anime and I got to see a few episodes that way. I didn't like it at first but trying his game changed my mind =)

As long as I can remember really. I saw the animation of the first episode and I thought it was amazing. So loved it ever since then, anime, games, action figures, ect. And so when I wasn't old enough to play video games, I had my action figures and I marched around the house pretending I was a Pokemon Trainer. Yeah, I guess you can say I was bored then. xD;

It was near the end of primary school that I discovered it, so about ten or eleven years ago. Since everybody else was mad about it I gave in eventually and bought some trading cards, and even those were addictive. I eventually invested in Pokemon Blue and was hooked indefinitley through high school, but I kept it on the quiet ;)
