      I've never actually played the Gen 1 games on a real cartridge. I'm much younger than most Gen 1 fans, having been born a good few years after the games' release, and I didn't start playing Pokemon until I was about 10. I had a GBA at some point, but it just sort of.... dropped off the face of the earth a few months after I got it. Shame, too, since it had Emerald in it when it disappeared (to this day I'm convinced my friend's jerk of a brother stole it). So, long story short, I never got a chance to play the Gen 1 games until a few years ago, when I discovered the magic of emulators. Since I recently replaced my GBA, I'm hoping to finally get to play it on a cartridge soon, or at least when I can find a somewhat-decently-priced genuine copy of the game.

        If you count FireRed and LeafGreen to be First Gen. material, then yes I do! {XD}

          I still own a Red and a Yellow cartridge. I got them a long while after they came out though.

            My first game in the series was Pokemon Black version. I never used to play it, cause i was younger and had a very short attention span. That all changed when my school allowed DS's because they promote "Educational technology" Cause EVERYONe knows that Pokemon is educational! hah. but anyway i picked up an old original Game Boy along with Pokemon Yellow and Red version. That and other games, but the Pokemon i played the most. Considering the guy i bought it off got it in 1997 just one year after the games release, the battery help up well. It still saves to this day, and i cant imagine how many times i beat the elite four using his pokemon!

              Yes. Mind, I'm not entirely sure where they come from given they were hand-me-downs I got before I could remember (literally), but I do own all three versions.

              I still have my original Blue Version that I got on a trip to the United States. It still works perfectly, unlike my newer Silver Version....

                  I had all of the cartridges at some point but the only one that I know I have in my possession right now is my Yellow one.

                    I have all three... and interestingly enough it survived over Gold and Silver

                        I'm a kid of the ruby generation, but I first introduced myself to pokemon with an already outdated gold version I bouth all GB and GBC games back in 2010, sadly the red version does not work properly, I don't care I never intended to play those cartriges probably because I just acquired for collecting purposes, and they don't have an intrinsic ownership value to me, I just like having the cartriges in my possesion.

                        I played red after having played the second and third generation.

                          I have a broken copy of Crystal that was my second Pokemon game (after Sapphire), and I have a still-working Yellow that I haven't played in a while.

                              I still have a Blue and a Red version over here. Some times I pop them on the Transfer Pak to go back in time!

                                I still have my original copies of Red and Yellow. I'm not sure whether they work properly or not, as I haven't checked them in a while, and they're at my parents' house. I also have a friend's copy of Blue, which I borrowed to see if I could fix it (it doesn't work properly - freezes anytime a text box appears and makes a Gastly cry or various other sounds).

                                  Unfortunately both my US and Japanese copies of Blue Version have been stolen, but I do still have my copies of Yellow, Red, and Green (original copy, not a repro). I'm pretty sure all of their batteries are deader than the DSi, but the games themselves work just fine.

                                        I have Yellow. Only have a GBA to play it on though, I don't have a GB/GBC. And yes, it still works. Battery included.
                                        what's a signature?

                                            Only version I have is Yellow and it still works to this day. Many hours spent trying to catch and evolve all the ones you can get natively, although I have never finished the Pokedex since I lacked a Trading partner. I know there are backdoor ways of getting them though so who knows I may catch me all despite my limitations.

                                            I have two of the original Gamesharks :) I use them for Dragon Warrior Monsters and they are as finicky as ever.

                                              I still have my copies of Blue and Yellow and they both work. As far as I know, my brother's copy of Red still works as well.
