I've wanted to make this topic for a week or so now, but I was always working or something. Today, however, is my day off (rock on!), so here we go...

How did you first discover Pokemon?

I got into it a long time ago when the cards first came out. My friends went to a comic book store to expand their collections, and I went along just for the heck of it. They bought me a Growlithe card, and I was hooked. Then, I found out about the GBC games, and bought Yellow. I also was addicted to the anime show for a while (I lost interest in the cards and the show after a few years, but I still love the video games). And to think, it all started with a single Growlithe card...

Oh, and sorry if a thread like this already exists. I checked and didn't see any, but if I'm mistaken, then just go ahead and lock this.

Well, I was shifting through my PlayStation magazine when there was a blue page with freaky looking monsters on it. I read it and it was a question: "Which Pokemon erupts a foul gas when enraged?" and there were a few dodgy looking freaks like a pink ball and a yellow mouse thing. Then I saw the answer, a 'Koffing'. I laughed at the name.

I saw another ad showing it on Sky on TV and I watched the first episode and got hooked like a fish to bait. Oh how it has changed.

I used to get scared of Pokemon Ghosts

You would never belive it these days, but it all started with the Anime. I was, like 6, and I saw one of the first ever episodes. I was absolutly hooked from then on. I only got interested in the games a year or so later... These days I hate the Anime, and wouldn't be seen dead watching it.... sorry, Anime fans!

I started to collect the cards first, iirc. I only had a few; I had Farfetch'd, Geodude, Ekans, and Machoke. I got all of them from my ex-step sister, because she had a ton of cards and Red/Blue versions. It was around Christmas 1999, and I still only had a few cards, I didn't have any of the GB games. June, 2000, my brother got the Pokemon TCG for GBC for his birthday. I stole it from him (hrhr) and he eventually let me keep it because I played it so much. September, 2000, I got Pokemon Yellow Version from my dad for my 12th birthday. I really only got it because my step sister played R/B all the time, and I wanted to have a similar game, but not the same thing. Her dad divorced my mom two weeks later, though. ;o

When I saw it in the Nintendo magazines that I used to read and collect and I thought 'I'll give it a go' so I bought Red and Blue and I absoloutley loved it. And I have been loyal to pokemon ever since.

Lesse here...oh yeah. It was the Halloween of '98. I was in 3rd grade at the time, and I was riding my bus to school. We were allowed to wear our costumes to school today, which was cool, but I chose not to. One girl did though, and she was dressed up as a Pikachu.

I was like "What are you?" and she said "I'm a Pikachu." So I'm like, "What's that?", and she explains a bit about Pokemon, and what time the show was on. I saw a few episodes, and I was hooked.

And then I lived happily ever after the end.
