    Which generation of Pokemon did you grow up with? Which were you first introduced to?

    For me it was 3rd generation, first playing Colosseum, Channel, and Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team. But 4th generation was first in terms of playing the main games. You?

    The first generation introduced me to Pokemon, I was entering my teens years when Pokemon started, I have been watching Pokemon ever since. The 5th generation always has had my favorite Pokemon.

    Also the 5th generation games was the first I played without cheating - so easy to do in emulators, so B2/W2 would be my first true game where all my hard work, strategy, and emotion paid off, and had tons of fun without having unfair advantage.

        Pokémon Yellow. I was only 9 years old... Where is the time
        Gameboy Color with Pokémon Yellow and later on Blue and Red. The only thing that kept me awake was to beat Gary those days.
        Also a Pokémon game on the nintendo 64 at my best friend's house, but forgot the full name of the game. We played that game for hours and hours together and never got tired of it.
        Great times

          Aggron is a 3rd Generation Pokemon.


          Anyway, my first was Gen I. I was 6 when I first saw the anime and got Pokemon Red as an early birthday gift in 2000 when I was 7. I grew up with the franchise and still love the games to this day and now at 20, I look forward to Gen VI and X and Y.

              Gen 3, FR/LG. To be honest it seemed a surprisingly long time after those that I got R/S. Then Emerald. A while after that I got G/S, then D/P/Pt. Then we go on to ROM hacks...

                Gen 1 was my first, I grew up with it. I wasn't that interested when Gen 2 came around, though I was fully involved in Gen 3. So I would say 1 & 3

                  While I was a fan of the franchise since Gen 1 (Thanks to the anime) I never acually owned a title untill Gen II (Pokemon Silver...) so um.. Gen 1.5?

                    Gen I for me. I remember when Red came out, I was about 10 and I got it and a teal Gameboy colour for my birthday. Never looked back!

                      Gen 1. My brother got Red, I got Blue, and we had Gameboy Pockets that were green and blue. I think I still have mine somewhere.

                        Gen 3 was my first experience with Pokemon. My friend had Ruby, and he constantly played it at daycare, so I got a Gameboy SP and Ruby from my parents. I remember right after I got it that I had to go to the store, and I played it while riding in one of those car carts xD

                          My first was Generation I.

                          Good times, I've since then lost my Pokemon Blue.

                                Generation I. Pokemon Red and Blue were my first (I got them both on the same day). I started playing when I was five or six years old. And I haven't stopped since.

                                Even though I did watch the anime back around in the Johto Saga I think the first generation I saw was the third, although I never really had the chance to play it seeing as it was my sister's game and I would probably be roasted stew if I touched her save file XD;. Technically the first generation I played was the fourth starting with Platinum. n_n

                                I think I either played red or gold. Darn it I can't remember. Either way it's one of them.

                                  The 1st generation was the one that I started with in terms of the anime and the TCG, but I didn't own any of the games until the 2nd gen (I got Gold for my 10th birthday).

                                  As for which generation I grew up with, I find it a little hard to pinpoint one over another. I was absolutely hooked on everything apart from the games during the first and early second generation, so I guess that could be part of my answer. On the other hand, even though I had Gold (and Yellow for a while), Sapphire is when I really started getting into the games, so I guess I grew up with those as well.

                                      Gen 4. Pokemon Pearl was my first game. I found out a year later it was fake. Now I lost it.
