I think my first Pokemon card was a fake Growlithe. Remember the old fake cars? Kinda...faded purple. They were more narrow?

A friend gave them to me. XD When I finally bought some legit cards I was like "These are too wide!"

My first cards were a pile a few inches thick from my friend's brother.

    My first Pokemon card was a Charmander I found at a swap meet back when I was around 6, wasn't that scratched up either so I figured why not.

    Snow's finally melting yay.

    I see Drakow is continuing my trend of liking your own posts, lol.

    I don't remember what my first card was but I do remember getting the limited edition Mew card at the theatre, and I thought it was fake so I almost threw it away, but then I found out it was real lol.

    I used to have a Dark Charizard card, but lost it. D: It was a birthday gift from my sister's fiance (he likes Pokemon). My best cards now are probably my Rayquaza and Deoxys cards (I think that's what it's called...horrible memory). I've stopped buying them, though- it's not very interesting to play it by myself.

    I do have Mawile card that's so fake it's pitiful. I will forever keep that card, though- it was my first bootleg Pokemon item. My only other one being this deformed-looking stuffed Pikachu. I used to have a real one, but it went missing.

      Oh yeah I remember my first ever booster pack of Pokemon cards. Me and my bro each got a pack and I pulled a Magnemite and a holofoil Magneton with an electric energy too! But because I was such a scrub I traded that Magneton for an uncommon Pidgeotto. But it's good in a way to get ripped off when you're a kid, cause I learnt quick about the way of the hustler and how not to get hustled rofl.

      I think I still have a few Pokemon cards. Someone gave them to me, but I never had anyone else to play with so I never used them. Don't even remember what I had.

        But you traded it away. That is so unmagical.

          I remember getting the shiny Mew upon seeing one of the films in the cinema... and that might have actually been my first card. I was never a big fan of the TCG, so it definitely might have been my first one. Kinda cool, I guess!

          Exact same situation, Scarf haha. I do occasionally play it with a friend or his younger sister, though. Everyone else I know hates it or doesn't want to bother learning how. Or I just never see them.

            Yeah, some people just don't like games. I have a lot that only a small number of people I know know how to play and even then I don't get the chance to play them much.

              I remember when we thought.. the more HP you had when you drew a random card, then you'd be more powerful and the winner of that round.. lol..

              The first pokemon card I ever had was a Tangela. True story.

              A friend also gave me a bunch of his pokemon cards when I was like 11 or 12. That was fun, because he had some pretty good ones (He wouldn't give up the Charizard though)

                First one I had was a holographic Blastoise. True story.

                It's also the only one I ever had. And the only one I ever lost.

                  I'm pretty sure the first card I got was the card you received from buying a vhs copy of the first Pokemon movie. Pretty sure it was Mewtwo but it's been so long that I barely remember it.

                  I remember having a huge deck of cards (at least 400) and I lost all of them. They might still be somewhere in my house but I haven't seen them since the 3rd grade. I quit buying cards after that.

                  You know what I had that I'm really upset I lost?

                  A holographic Obelisk the Tormentor. Although it had the blue back... that made it legit, right? I'm clueless on that stuff.

                  I have around 200 cards, I think. :? But they just sit there. I stopped bothering to waste my money on them. Most were given to me, though.
