    When I was 5, Pokemon was really big at my school, so I wanted to play too. At that point, my brother and I started collecting cards, and my brother's friend lent me a gameboy and Pokemon Yellow. My brother soon after bought Emerald, so I bought Sapphire. Since then, I've been playing the games as they came out, after buying my DS that later broke into pieces. I don't collect too many cards anymore, mainly because I already have 1000+ cards.

          Ever since I was old enough to pick up a game boy color. I remember me and my brother getting one each. I got blue, he got yellow, and my sister already had red. I chose Squirtle, she got Charmander.

          It was a blast when we got the trade cable accessory, trading our hard worked on Pokemon back and forth to help each other advance in the game. Man were those the days. Not to many times like that between us anymore though .

          I first started Pokemon gaming in 2002 with Pokemon Silver, and it was just about one of the most magical experiences I've ever had when I beat Lance.

            I started playing in 2010 when it was my sophomore year in high school. My parents didn't want me going broke for the franchise when I was little and they thought it was too violent for me (yeah, my parents were WAY overprotective) so I bought Pokemon Black on a school band trip and I've loved it ever since. I started a sort of ladder rank system for my school and I finished my senior year as the number 1 seed. I even earned the nickname "the popemon" (pope + pokemon) and was the go to guy for anything pokemon related. When I got into pokemon I got INTO pokemon. XD

            I got a little off track there, but I've been playing for three years.

              For my 8th birthday my dad got me Yellow Version and a yellow Gameboy Color that said Pokémon on it, had pictures of different Pokémon, and around the Power light was a Pokeball. I've been hooked ever since!

                Started playing when Emerald was out. That was about 8 year ago.

                  Since 1999, baby!

                  First time I reached the Elite Four, Lorelei beat me so bad, I still haven't forgiven her for it. That's what you get for going in with the three mystical birds plus a few underleveled Pokémon. And I thought Dig was boss, because it killed everything. Oh boy, that was fun.

                  To everyone who started with at least Diamond and Pearl, trust me, you have it better. There were quite a few Pokémon in RBY that learned zero STAB moves. I believe it had to do with the limited cartridge space, but also because GF thought a few Pokémon like Scyther could be strong with only Normal-type moves. Except not. Since when did they have a good grasp of the metagame?

                    I have started playing properly since 2012 when I had Pokemon White, although I did briefly play Pokemon Yellow and Pinball about 12 years ago, until my Game Boy Color stopped working. Don't know what happened during my absence of Pokemon playing. I must've lost interest or something like that.

                        I played since Fire Red and Leaf Green were released in late 2004. They're still are some of my favorite games of all time.

                          The role playing games were the last ones I got into - I couldn't play them until I saved up enough money to buy a gameboy and one of the games, and since I was a kid, it took me a couple years of doing craft fairs with my sisters. I was finally able to buy them when I was nine, so I've been playing for nine years.

                          For a long time before that, though, I played the Nintendo 64 games - my favorites were Pokemon Snap and Pokemon Stadium. I believe that I started playing those at age five, so I've been playing some kind of pokemon game for thirteen years.

                            I bought the Base Deck from the TCG at around 98'? And thought I was the king when my friend gave my all 3 of the original starters, along with a spare Machamp and Gyarados. On that Red flex yo, Blastoise was the one. My first video game was Gold in 2000ish, and I haven't looked back since then.

                              I started playing when R/B first came out in the US... I was 10 or 11 at the time (old lady over here). So I've been playing for 15-16 years! I haven't really taken a break, either, though I did slow down quite a bit starting in college. I wish I had more time to play. I started playing a bit more recently, though.

                              It's crazy how long it's been! I don't think (aside from other video games) I've stuck with any other hobby this long

                                  I've been playing since Christmas Eve 1998.
                                  I got red!
                                  My starter was Charmander.

                                  15 years later. . .
                                  Still playing!

                                  oh and I'm 28 now!

                                  I got Red, along with a Game Boy at 8 years old. I'll be turning 23 in November.
                                  So 23 - 8 = 15 years playing Pokemon :D That's...a long time, and that does not include my hiatuses & stuff. I'm really glad to see that Pokemon has stuck with me ever since. I still have my Silver copy that I was gifted when I was 10. It should work now. ;3

                                  My very first starter was Bulbasaur and it made my first playthrough of Red extremely easy.

                                    wow you are one of the first people ive met that chose Bulbasaur as a starter. Everyone around here (I live in TN) chose the other 2. the only reason we ever chose bulb was to trade him to our main games lol.

                                      I started with RBY of Gen I. Yes I had all three and yes I played them all through to the end. So I've been playing since Pokemon was released.

                                        I've been playing Pokemon since 1999 when I received Pokemon Yellow (and a Gameboy Color!) as a gift. Ever since then I've been a fan of Pokemon games!

                                        My dad gave me Pokémon Blue as a Christmas present back when I was five, and I was a fan of the series ever since. My favorite game so far has gotta be Pokémon Emerald. According to my save file, I've spent a total of 548 hours playing this game. Haha. Pokémon Crystal is my favorite, too. I used to play it a lot when I was nine. I was completely addicted to it. Black and White are also my favorites. I love all the new features that they've introduced to us... maaaybe except the Dream World.

                                            I've been playing since 2009, or 2010. So, about three or four years now. That's nothing when compared to some other people!
