I was about 7 or wait. Could be earlier. My first game was Pokemon blue, and it was the best game I ever played, even until now. Sadly, I lost the cartridge before I beat the Elite four.

I really loved that game......T.T

......What are you staring at?

Well, go figure. I was 3 years old when I got a multi-cart in Hong Kong with Red and Blue. But I really only took the games seriously with Yellow, when I was 5 and named all my characters ASH. XD

I don't remember what year it was, but I first started out as an observer - I recall watching my brother playing his copy of Yellow, and finding it intriguing. Eventually, I got my own GBC and a copy of Blue (might have been a present, I really don't remember).

Though I think I didn't pay attention to Blue for very long, since Gen 2 was released soon after...

I remember it better now.
It was in March of 2000. I've been a fan of the anime since 98 but I never played the games but really wanted to so I asked for a Gameboy Color and a Pokemon game for my birthday. Me and my brothers have birthdays a month apart from each other so my dad, mom , and my grandma took us shopping to get our gifts at the same time. My older brother and both got gameboys and Pokemon blue and Red. I took Pokemon Red and he picked Pokemon Blue. My little brother wanted a N64 but we my parents could afford it so they got him a Gameboy and Game and Watch Gallery 3 instead.

I think I was 8 when I first started playing Pokemon--Pokemon Yellow. We had it on those 50 games in 1 cartridges, and it was useless saving the game since... well, the game doesn't save at all.

I remember this one time when my siblings and I played ALL day without turning off our GameBoy. The farthest we reached was Saffron City, lol. When the time to sleep came, I was SO hesitant to switch off the unit, thinking I'll never be in this point in the game ever again.

I've learned my English by trying to understand that "special dutch - frenchish like"
language (= english). By searching the meaning of different words and by learning my native language
at school I managed to learn the language by myself.

Oh yeah, back to the topic: My first two games were red and yellow. From that moment, it was one of the
games I really liked to play. (among others)

I first started playing pokemon during mid-late third gen. My first ever pokemon game was Mystery dungeon red rescue team. I loved that game soooo much~

Not sure how old I was, but I was playing Emerald on my old GBA. I still play that game on my ds lite. It is definitely one of my favorite games, but I never did get that far.

Night will fall and dark will rise

It was Pokemon yellow and I was 3. Couldn't read but me and my brother spent a long afternoon getting to Lavender Town. Sweet sweet childhood. Next memory of Pokemon is in 2003, with the Pokemon Colosseum advert on TV I remember begging for the GameCube bundle, but my mum couldn't afford it. The year after I got a tribal sp with both fire red and leaf green. I should thank my mother for the awesome childhood.

I was about 2 or 3. My brothers showed me G/S, and I fell in love. I'm 12 now, and I understand Pokemon alot better. The first game that I actually played would be Sapphire.
