    As the First Generation games were released a few months before I was born (December '96), I didn't get into the games until around '05. A friend got me into Pokemon in Year 3 ('05) and I bought Pokemon Blue on eBay followed shortly by Red and, unfortunately, a counterfeit copy of Ruby with my GBA SP that Christmas (which subsequently deleted itself when I had seen 180/200 in the Pokedex). I got the NDS on my 10th birthday along with Pokemon Ranger. The next year I got Diamond on my birthday, and grabbed Pearl the next year, along with Emerald on eBay. Bought Platinum the same month it was released and since then have got one of each new pair of games on release date, and on two occasions, the corresponding strategy guide. So, after that essay, here is the timeline of the main series games I acquired:

    Blue, Red, Ruby - '05
    Diamond - '07
    Pearl, Emerald - '08
    Platinum - '09
    SoulSilver + Strategy Guide - '10
    Black, Sapphire - '11
    HeartGold, Black 2 + Strategy Guide - '12
    FireRed - '13

    So, doing the math, I have been playing Pokemon for 8-9 years. I also enjoy the anime and have Seasons 1-14 and all the movies up to Victini (excluding The First Movie)
