    Default How long have you kept a Pokemon?

    I wonder if anyone here has a Pokemon passed down from their very first game?
    (IF it is possible), say you had a Pikachu from Pokemon Blue, and you kept trading it to each new game that came out, and finally you still have that same Pokemon on your new OR/AS game.

    So? How long have you kept a Pokemon?

    I think I still have one from my Emerald game, but I cannot find it!! D: It was my shiny Manectric.

    Eh I "quit" Pokemon like every year so, so I don't have any surviving Pokemon from any of my older games. I did have a Swampert I transfered from Emerald to Diamond, then traded from Diamond to HG, and then transferred from HG to Black, but I think it ended there.

    I still have my Jynx, Umbreon, and Sylveon from Pokémon X, which I've had for about a year. That's about it.

    I really don't transfer pokemon between the generations. I like to start anew each time.

    I've transferred several up from Sapphire... I think that's the further back you can get? It's a long process. xD

    You can't have Pokémon from the first two generations in the new games. The oldest Pokémon are those from the original Ruby and Sapphire games. I have still have several of my original Sapphire Pokémon, including my starter, now on my Alpha Sapphire game.

    I've passed down my Blaziken from Sapphire to Y, but that's it.

    I still have my starter, now a Charizard, from FireRed, which was my first Gen 3 game. He's now on AlphaSapphire. I've also got a shiny Mewtwo thats now on AS from the same game, although a different save file.

    I've still got all of my old games though, so could transfer the Pokemon on them up to the new games if I ever get the urge. In particular there's a Electrive on Pearl, that was caught as a Electabuzz in FireRed, that I'm keen on using again. Will also need my Palkia if I plan on catching Giratina at some point, and maybe some other Pokemon for dex purposes if I get close to completing it.

    At this point in time, the longest is around 3 years. My oldest I think is a Groudon from my original Ruby Version that I met in play-through during 2012. Its pretty nice to have him in Omega Ruby with the new form and all. Especially since he's the last remaining Pokemon I have from my original version of the game. The cartridge is currently a little unstable to play...(I've had it since the games were new, and it has seen a bit of damage...)

    Ive transferred legendaries from sappphire, emerald, & Firered all the way to Black 2. Thats the farthest they've gone. I think its about time to retire them and let them run free in the digital grass.
    Only thing I'll keep from gen3 is my shiny Tentacool~

    I still have my team from Sapphire transferred over to X. I kinda just want to transfer them to AS to come full circle after all these years : )

    Between my younger brother and I, we own every Pokemon game that has ever been released.

    I never restarted my Pokemon Blue game after I started it, and I've had it since I was 8 or 9, so I've still got all my Pokemon on there. If it is possible, I'd probably be able to transfer any of them to newer games.

    I think the oldest Pokemon I still have is my Sceptile from Sapphire. I don't remember exactly when I started that file, but I've probably had him for 11-12 years. He's currently residing in my X version, and I want to transfer him over to Alpha Sapphire at some point. I had older Pokemon from Gens 1 and 2, but they're long gone now due to either restarting the file they were on, or the battery going dead.

    I was stupid as a little kid and I traded my Emerald version to one of my classmates way back and I don't have the Diamond version that I transferred a lot of my Pokémon to from Emerald so I don't have anything from back then.

    The oldest Pokémon that I still have is a Dragonite named MYTH from my old Platinum version(which I also don't have anymore).

    I still have all my main teams from my games since Sapphire. I've passed them on to each new gen to make sure I didn't lose them. My oldest Pokemon would have to be my Blaziken from Sapphire. Now I have a new Blaziken from AS, so things have come full circle! I'll always love and hold on to my originals, though.

    I still have my Blastoise from FireRed when I first started playing the game nearly nine years ago, though I don't know exactly where it is right now. It could be in Diamond still, or I may have possibly moved it up to White.

    EDIT: I also have a bunch of other Pokemon from FireRed, Colosseum, and XD: Gale of Darkness that I've got on Diamond, Soul Silver, White, and Y. Though I can't recall which ones came from any particular game.

    I have a Jolteon, Walrein, and Aggron that I've transferred all the way up from my first game, Pokemon XD.
