Default Re: How did you get into Pokemon?

When I was about 6, my brother loaned me his GBA with Ruby on the condition that I evolved his Graveler. I got the damn thing to lv.90 but nothing happened! I only found out later after we got Internet that you need to trade it...
Couple of years later my friend gave me a stack TCG cards for 2 quid (bargain!) Shortly after that I bought Diamond and played it so much that the D-pad on my DS Lite became completely unresponsive...

I honestly can't remember which of the two it was, but it was one of these two:
1.My friend had a copy of Diamond, my sister stole it (dangit. *sister name here*) and then she let me play it, then losing interest and giving the full copy to me
2. A different friend had an old GBA that they had laying around and never used, I tried it out, got hooked, then was told I could keep it

The cards! To this day my first full card binder is with my 9 year old brother. I was hooked and every chance I got, whether I was at a retail store or ordering them online, Pokemon cards were on my mind. Eventually my parents figured that I'd like the games so I got Pokemon HeartGold. Ever since then I've played almost every Pokemon game that has come out. Now my brother is starting to play the games and it brings me great joy. :)

I had that same exact book! There is an updated one that fixes some of the mistakes but not all of them. I used the book to look up info for the Pokemon I got from the card packs.

I saw the Pokemon black and white movie and I thought it looked cool. I brought it and I have been obsessed ever since.

Default Re: How did you get into Pokemon?

I literally got into Pokemon due to my brother buying the cards one time, and my finding his seel one extremely adorable.

And it was after about 3 or so years of not being able to stand the franchise as a whole over the rather terrifying craze.

And......now Pokemon is like one of the most important things to me in the history of ever. How a person can have a change of heart! And over a card of Seel, no less. Maybe Seel should be pokemon's 'God'; and NOT Arceus.....roflmao

And I swear getting into pokemon at age 11-12 over one of them being 'just so cute' is like the girliest way to ever start being a pokemon fan xD I still wonder if i woulda stayed a fan, too, if not for my autism....(which seriously makes me relate to this franchise a lot as a whole o.o; )

Also, I suddenly feel Seel is one of my favorite pokemon after making this post now o.o;;; really.....and its such a random pokemon too. haha.
