    This could be entertaining for those who are grew up Gen 3 to 5. Could be anything really from TV to just experiences. If this is somewhere else please move it and I apologize.

    You know you grew up Gen 1 when you can sing the pokerap with ease after many years from hearing last time

        You know you grew up in Gen 1 when you feel a sense of accomplishment after collecting the original 150 from Kanto.

          You grew up with Gen 1 if you're still trying to one-hit KO Ghost Pokémon with Psychic moves.

            You know you grew up with Gen 1 when you bought fingerless gloves to match Ash's (and they were absolutely useless but you didn't mind).

              You know you grew up in Gen 1 when you started a new game just to try to move that darn truck. Bonus if you bought a different copy just to trade a Pokemon who knew Strength and Surf (I think) over.

              You know you grew you with Gen 1 if you can recite the original 151 in just 90 seconds.

                            You know you grew up with Gen1 when you try teleport away from trainers right as they see you.

                              You knew you grew up with Gen 1 when you think the Nidorans are the only Pokemon with genders.

                                You know you grew up in Gen 1 when you got yourself a Mew thru teleporting away from a trainer who has seen you north of the Nugget Bridge.
