I first got into Pokemon when it was absolutely huge and there was Pokemon everything everywhere. I can't remember what part of the franchise drew me in, but it was probably either the anime or the video games.

Cards/PKMN Gold, which I basically completed for my brother.

I've come a long way since.

I was at my grandmothers house and my cousins decided to watch the Pokemon anime so I joined in with them. It was also the "Mystery at the Lighthouse" episode. Later I got Yellow and kept getting games from there. =B

I remember a friend let me borrow his yellow when I gave it back many years later I got pearl. And that was how it began.

Our primary school went through a series of "crazes" and if you liked the current craze you were in with the majority so. Unlike the rest of the crazes that came through my old school, Pokémon was one that I continued to like, even after it had died down as a trend.

I remember seeing the episode in which Ash finds Bulbasaur. i can only assume that this is how it started.

It was shortly after my...10th birthday I think. My mom took me to K-Mart to pick out a gift. I saw Sapphire's boxart, bought the game, and have been a fan ever since.

I got pokemon Emerald for my birthday one year, and didn't particularily like it. I kept starting new games, choosing Mudkips, losing against the elite four. Then one day, as I was starting a new game, I noticed something different about my Mudkip. It was female. Not trying to be sexist or anything, but we won a lot of battles and eventually beat the elite four. Then...I have been obsessed with pokemon ever since. That you Bluey...may you rest in peace in the hall of games that got deleted while i was no where nearby to prevent it ;_; Oh Well, she has been reincarnated in my most recent Emerald team and is now level 44...100 soon...as a tribute to Bluey...

It all started one Christmas morning for me. I was what, three or four, I think? Anyway, I was unwrapping my presents, and one was a Pokemon figure. Like the plastic ones. It was a Squirtle. I took Squirtle everywhere I went, I remember taking him to the beach once and putting sunblock on him. Ah, memories... I still have Squirtle.

I started when silver and gold had only recently come out, and I got silver for my birthday. Of course, I tried it out, and I was bored out of my mind. There was only one pokemon I liked. Chikorita. I was going to quit when I got to Goldenrod. I got an Eevee. I named it Eos. And I kept going. It evolved into an Espeon when I was on the way to the league. I still miss it...

The same with me, except I loved the game and played it non-stop for 4 hours straight per day. I wasn't very good at it, but eventually I beat it, and in the process I fell in love with any pokemon resembling an animal in the dog family (i.e. Ninetales, Arcanine, and Flareon).

I watched the 2nd episode of the anime when I was in preschool. Looking back, it could have easily been when the second episode premiered(I remember giving the date as 1998 around the same time), which is kinda cool.

I didn't go from just liking Pokemon to a complete Pokenerd until I was around 12, when I got LeafGrean and discovered the internet had more than just Neopets.

Default Re: What originally drew you into Pokemon?

When I was 3, I went to a friend's Pokemon-themed birthday. We all rushed for the cake toppers, the Kanto starters, and I grabbed Charmander. From that point on my obsession gradually grew, going from my own Pokemon birthday to plushies and the anime and movies, until on my 9th birthday I got a GBA SP, R/S Pinball (which I played first), and Sapphire. I've been hooked ever since.
