I'm probably a slightly different case.
I was always interested in Pokemon as a kid and still have all of the pictures I drew.
The only Pokemon I'd actually seen was 'The Water Flowers of Cerulean City' to 'The School of Hard Knocks,' which I had on video. Also I'd seen the first Pokemon movie many times and really loved it.
As I got older I didn't think about Pokemon and by the age of 6 I was playing Yu-Gi-Oh to act cool.
From years 3-6 (grades 4-7 I think) everybody started growing out of Yu-Gi-Oh because nobody else actually knew how to play. It was only me who actually learned and I liked it so that was my main thing throughout most of my childhood.
I think it was at the age of 11 or 12 I got my DS. I'd seen otehr people playing Pokemon Diamond and I thought it looked pretty cool.
It was probably in the summer of 2008 because I remember it was a considerable time after Diamond came out but before Platinum. Infact I got Diamond for £14. Not long afterwards the DSi was released.
Anyway I was a noob for a while then when a little before I got Heart Gold I learned about EVs. I didn't EV properly, I just altered the EVs of my favourite pokemon, getting rid of useless special attack etc.
During Heart Gold was when I found all the other competitive battling stuff like Natures, IVs and Smogon.
Then after the London tournament last Febuary my friend IceArceus got a suspicious Nasty Plot Celebi. It had 31 in each IV and was Timid. We queried it with the guy and he said it was RNGed. So I looked into that and tried to give it a go and succeeded once but that was when I got my Secret ID wrong so Ponyta wasn't Shiny
It wasn't until near the beginning of the holidays I worked out how to do it and it wasn't too long after that I set-up Psypokes after Ice kept telling me about all the good deals he'd been getting from here.
Then I set-up my trading thread as the first RNGer on Psypokes hurray!
