Mine was Emerald :3 And I don't regret it <3 I knew most of the pokemon from 1st gen since those were my childhood - but gen 3 was brand new to me so I didn't know anything about most of the pokemon that were in games :D But I got back into pokemon again - and since that day I've played most of the roms (original and hacks) that were completed and available to download <3
I don't care about EV's or IV's - I play for fun not competitive.
I don't own consoles - I play on emulators on my computer.

I am a fan of Criminal Minds, Crossing Jordan and some other series. I am also Harry Potter fan and Disney fan (I love Frozen!) - I also like other animes beside Pokemon.

My first game was Pokémon Yellow. Since I was a huge fan of the Pokémon TV show, when I got the game it was a dream come true.
I don't use "uber" Pokémon, I don't calculate stat values, I don't use cheating devices, I don't breed my way to perfection, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature.

My first pokemon game was Blue. My cousins and I decided to get the game for Christmas, so me and one of my cousins went for blue while the other two got Red.

Well, I played Red, Yellow, Silver and Sapphire, which I played after a friend of mine had finished them, and I gave them back to him after I finished them. The first game I bought myself was actually Platinum, and since then I haven't had a single second hand game. It's always great to be able to restart them whenever you want. The first impression I had, while playing Red, was "omg this is awesome".

It was actually a spin-off that I started with; Blue Rescue Team. I still stand by that title being quite a underrated title.

As for main series titles, it was Emerald. While I only played it on my DS phat with the 2nd slot making it impossible to trade pokémon, I still enjoyed the title while waiting for Pokémon Pearl to come out.

Pokemon Ruby version. I was only 7 years old when the game came out but I didn't play the game until a year later after it's original release. It's weird though because I would always watch the original anime series and collect PKMN cards but never played the games until Gen 3. That being said, I've never played any Gen 1 or Gen 2 main game, started with Gen 3.

Ruby -> FireRed -> Diamond -> Black -> White 2

When I was a kid, I played the original Pokemon stadium with my big sis! (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*: ・゚✧

It was really fun, and actually how I bonded with her. I was about 5, and she was 9, so we were kinda far apart in age, but whenever we played Pokemon, I felt like we actually had a chance to spend time together and laugh and have fun!! It was great.

She's 20 now, and I'm 99% sure she grew out of Pokemon, unfortunately. T_T
I would make them some super cool and bad ass signature, but I have no idea what to put. Oops!

Pokemon Yellow. As a kid I loved the anime, and well hey, gotta get the version that's closest to it. Then along came GSC, then RSE, etc... It's been a long fulfilling relationship, Pokemon and I.

That'd be Pokémon Pinball for the gameboy color. Well, it was actually Pokémon Pinball and Pokémon Red together but Pokémon Pinball was my first Pokémon that I touched and played all the way through.

My first pokemon I believe was either Pokemon Stadium 2 or hey you pikachu! I might have gotten them at around the same times and I was so young so I don't remember well Dx
But my first game from the main series was Pokemon Crystal. My old best friend in elementary school had decided to give it to me as a birthday present because he didnt play it much. I remember he only got as far as Goldenrod City. I restarted of course, to have my own experience with the game. Since then i've probably replayed it around 3 times through, each with different starters and teams. I have no idea where it is right now sadly, but ill still never forget that my friend gifted me such a great game :')

Have to say Ruby. It was my first, and soon swapped to Sapphire because Kyogre. But I get good memories trying to fix that stupid dry battery and getting my Kadabra to level 100 hoping it will evolve.

Pokemon Stadium. Even though Pokemon Stadium 2 was already out by then, I got it to save money... in hindsight, should have convinced my parents to get PS2 considering it had everything PS had and more.

Blue was my first. Back when I was a wee pup I absolutely adored Pokémon, but I was a bit behind on the gaming systems so while people were getting their copies of Ruby and Sapphire, it hadn't been long since I'd just acquired Blue. Though, that's partially my fault.

In a time before I got Blue, I saw Red in the store and wanted to try it out. I tried the game in my GameBoy Color and couldn't seem to figure out how to get out of the player's house, so I told my dad "No way, that's not Pokémon!" and we left. It was only when my mother's boyfriend at the time gave me Blue that I realized that the game I could've gotten was Pokémon. After that I got Yellow, and constantly had people asking me "Don't you mean Pokémon gold?" It was pretty annoying honestly. Eh.

I remember I didn't know there was a new generation, and when I saw starters I was literally blown away. I chose Torchic, and got disappointed when I saw Combusken, I guess I expected a Phoenix or something lol
Either way, I loved it.

My first game was Pokemon Silver.

Although, me and my elder brothers had to share a copy of Pokemon Yellow, because they didn't understand the way the game worked.

I got Pokemon Blue Version as a surprise present along with a Blue Gameboy, koffi~

I somewhat regret getting rid of it. Oh well, sometimes I need to get rid of old stuff. I guess I could have kept it, but I have too much stuff. I have a stack of Playstation 3 videogames that is taller than I am. I have several Nintendo DS games that probably do the same. I don't want to see about my Snes games. I don't have a large list of playstation games or playstation 2 games anymore. . . I had to trade in my advance games in order to get what I wanted, but I don't regret it. It was like releasing a long-term Pokemon friend. They helped me on my journey one last time before we had to say good-bye forever, koff~
