    Ohh... I think it was around 2004/2005. We got a new neighbour and he had GBA with LG and sapphire. I also had GBA, together with my brother (mine is broken and he bought a new one) anyway, I borrowed his sapphire version and I still have it one place. This was my first time playing pokémon and I'm still enjoying it :D

      Unofficially (since I stole it)
      Around when Pokemon Emerald came out. I was at Wallmart with my parents and I went into the Electronics section to play the video game demo's. When I noticed the someone had left the video game case open........ I grabbed a gameboy advanced sp and a copy of emerald........... I shoved it in my pants and then rushed to find my parents and asked them for the car keys to chill in the car..... I ran to our car and busted open the gameboy and I put in the emerald game and I started playing it.......

      Officially (I actually bought it)
      I bought a Nintendo 3DS and Pokemon Black in 2012........... Lol

        Hey guess what? Same thing applies to me too!
        I first started playing Yellow, which I got for Christmas in 1999, and got hooked on it almost instantly, but to much initial reluctance when I first opened it.

            I'm not sure, I think it was maybe around 2005, playing on a friend's Red Version. The first game I actually owned was Diamond, but I've got no idea when I got that. Maybe 2008?

              I was 8 years old and my cousin showed me his pokemon blue and I was hooked. I waited until my dad came home and we rushed out to Software etc to buy a Red and Blue copy. My addiction never faded. I bought EVERY game that came out for the handhelds

                I started playing on my friends' Blue and Red versions right when they came out. I personally told my parents I wanted to wait for Yellow version to come out, and that was the first game I owned, and got it with the Pikachu edition game boy. I then bought Gold, Silver, Crystal, skipped Gen 3, then bought Diamond Pearl, Platinum, Heart Gold, Soul Silver, Black and White. Bought the TCG, Pinball, Snap, Stadium, and rented Puzzle League. I have one of those mystery dungeon games, but don't really like it. I also tried Ranger and didn't like it. Might be that those games are for the younger demographic.

                  I started playing when my friend lent me his Blue version with an original huge Gameboy to raise some pokemon to battle him. I loved it but didn't get really hooked on it until I bought my very own gameboy colour with Pokemon Yellow. It was pretty much the only game I played on it. I loved Blue but Yellow was great because it had more colours and because Pikachu followed your sprite around <3 (colour with a U because i'm in Canada)

                    Around 2000, when I was three. I played my brother's Pokemon Blue, even though I couldn't read. I got a GBC and Pokemon Crystal when I was four, for my birthday which was a couple months after the release. I could read a little (Gist of the storyline) and I played it a TON. It took me a while to beat the Elite 4 but I just raised my Typhlosion until it got Flamethrower XD. Haven't stopped playing ever since.

                      Emerald, still love it to this day as you can see. The main thing that got me was a silly book of facts about the 1st gen pokemon....I was actualy given pokemon stadium 2 a bit before, but I don't count that, but thanks to that I was convinced gold and silver were still current....silly me.

                        I started playing them back when pokemon red and blue came out. Originally played pokemon blue on the GBP(Gameboy Pocket just in case no one remembers them) my sister had pokemon red and then we got pokemon yellow after that and i have played all of them since then(with the exception of pokemon leaf green).

                          My first game was pokemon blue I got it when I was 6 in 2000 I think. Oh boy did that game have me hooked. I would spend hours straight playing pokemon as a kid and still sometimes have a long session of pokemon nowadays.

                          Favorite generation had to be the second, even though I was pissed when my crystal save file got deleted after 120 hours of playtime on it

                            I first started playing in 2000, when Crystal just came out. (Ah, nostalgia is overcoming me...) Ever since then, I've gotten every single game except for Black/White.

                            Pretty much since they games came out here near the end of 98'. One of my friends would never share his game so I asked my mom to buy me it (Red version of course); haven't looked back since, lol.

                            I didn't start playing the games until I was 13 or something, and that was Yellow and Ruby, on a GBA. I do however remember watching my friends play Red/Blue when we were like 9. I played the TCG instead back then!

                              I just started at 2010. That was HeartGold and I used a DS Lite. I think I knew that there was Pokemon before 2010 (one of my friends play it), but at that time I don't have any interest in Pokemon.

                              I'm kinda surprised that there are people who only started a couple of years ago when it's such a big title and been around for such along time, then again there are other games people enjoy playing.
                              I did get Blue in 1999 so that makes it 13 years this year.

                              Saw the Cartoon on Cheese TV in 97 (Aussie Kids show) bought blue, never looked back, they have all been my favourite to date at some point, but Gen IV, especially Platinum is my ultimate favourite.

                                  I started when I was about 5 or 6. My Grandma had liked the gamecube and so she bought a gameboy and pokemon yellow to try those two out. She didn't like it and when I came over and started playing it, she happily allowed me to keep both items. My favorite gens as of now would either be 2 or 3.

                                    I remember... December of 1998 when I was 8. I got Pokémon Blue as a Christmas present. Ever since then, I've been hooked on the animé (older sagas) and most of the games. That day changed my whole life. I'm glad I got Pokémon Blue as a present instead of something else.

                                        I remember looking for a new game and coming across Fire Red, so I started playing in around 2005.
                                        But one of my friends used to play crystal and I stole his game for like a day, does that count? :p He got it when it came out and 'left' it at my place the same day.
                                        Haha.

                                          Around when Pokemon Emerald came out. I was at Wallmart with my parents and I went into the Electronics section to play the video game demo's. When I noticed the someone had left the video game case open........ I grabbed a gameboy advanced sp and a copy of emerald........... I shoved it in my pants and then rushed to find my parents and asked them for the car keys to chill in the car..... I ran to our car and busted open the gameboy and I put in the emerald game and I started playing it.......
                                          Hope the Cops did not Read this as you would be in Big Trouble over that Kid

                                            I started playing the games around 1999. My aunt had pokemon red and blue which she let me borrow a lot and then I got pokemon yellow for christmas.
