    As embarrassing as it is, my first capture was a Bidoff at age nine. It is now rotting in my PC Box for eternity.

      First Pokémon I ever had was Cyndaquil. Not sure, but I think the first one I caught was Sentret.

      Never did care for Sentret all that much (though it's closer to the "like" end of the scale than to "dislike"), but Cyndaquil's okay.

        My first pokemon was probably a Pidgey or Rattata or some fodder pokemon along those lines.

        I remember capturing a Girafarig in my friend's HG/SS game some time before I started playing myself. Does that count?

        My first own Pokémon though was my starter friend Turtwig in Pokémon Diamond. As for the first Pokémon I captured in said game, that was a Starly. Might have been a Bidoof though, not 100% sure.

          If I remember correctly it might have been Nincada that I caught in Omega Ruby and named it Chop. At least I can remember that I thought it's cute so I really wanted one. Later it evolved into Ninjask and it was really helpful with cutting those prickly trees.

          I honestly can't remember what my first Pokemon was which is a massive shame :(
          It was either Squirtle or Charmander in FireRed, pretty standard but I remember loving that first playthrough!

            I was playing Yellow and Gold around the same time. The first one I caught in Yellow was a Pidgey, and in Gold it was a Sentret. Pikachu and Cyndaquil were my first starters.

              The first Pokémon I ever obtained was a Torchic on a copy of Pokémon Ruby I rented from a local game shop. However, I eventually had to return that game and say goodbye to my team.

              The first Pokémon I ever actually owned myself was a Bulbasaur on LeafGreen. The first I ever caught was likely a Pidgey or Rattata.

                        My first starter ever was a torchic on the Sapphire cartridge sister lended me.

                        I probably took such decision because of a thing for avians I might have inherited from mother...
                        or it could be because I used to be her little sparrow...
                        Then again, there's also the psychological reasons many choose the fire type starter :
                        Pokémon games are mostly about combat, are they not? And we're more prone to deem the flame
                        as destructive force, despite the existance of anomalous waves and monsoons, or the fact that
                        trees can demolish buildings(the fig tree is particularly adept at digging through rock, if you
                        have a green roof make sure nobody ever plants one). The colours also influence, since
                        shades of blue and green are reminiscent of sky, water and vegetation, which of course
                        soothes us.
                        As for my first catch, I wrote down about it so many times I suspect somebody will track me
                        and cut my life short... *peeks out of the window*
                        Okay, as for my first catch(with sis' help, of course) was a poochyena,
                        but he was golden-coated, shiny. He was only one of the two legitimate pokémon I remember
                        ever getting, the other one being a wingull, always on Sapphire, and probably my last capture
                        on that game...
                        Back to the poochyena, I was still a novice and sis' wasn't exactly used to poochyena so he ended up
                        in the box rather quickly. Because I was a lazy bum, I later put him in the daycare for the sake
                        of seeing him evolved, and he's now in a box of my Diamond game.
                        Alas, I wish I had changed his nickname 'tho...
                        I am but a tearful clown. Though I smile, I cry inside.

                          The very first pokemon I've ever catched was a pink Shellos in 'Diamond', if I remember correctly (from the start I only catched pokemon of which I liked the appearance). But my first pokemon ever was a Turtwig.

                          Aside from Torchic in in Ruby, I think it was Zigzagoon? I believe so, anyway. @[email protected]
