    I started playing Pokemon when I was around 10 or 11 years old when the games first came out in 1999 (I am now 22 years old) and I still play. I never stopped because it was 'uncool' as I never care much about what people thought. I will always be playing Pokemon even when I'm 100, haha.

    I got my first ever copy of pokemon yellow for my 6th birthday. I ended up letting a kid beat it for me and i then traded it to him for some lame wario game. I really started playing when i was 8. I got red and crystal plus a brand new Game boy color. Ive played through the story of every main game too. I never stoped playing unless i didnt have the system i needed to play.

    I was ten years old and my First Pokemon Game was Red version, then when Gold and Silver came out I enjoyed play Silver a lot due to Lugia before the elite four. I watch the anime but now not so much.

    When I was 7. When my parents split up my dad went to live with this woman who had a son, who played pokemon. I was intruged by the game he was playing (Crystal) so he lent me Gold as my first game.

    We did a lot of battling too By the time emerald came out, I was better than him. MWAHAHAHA!

    My first game was Gold. I got it for Christmas in 2001 when I was about 6 years old, however it took me a while to actually like the game because I didn't know how to leave the house at the start

    I had watched the anime since I was four or five, but started playing the games with LeafGreen. I really loved that game, and played it for so long. I got Diamond around its release date and have been buying the games ever since.

    I am 20 and have been playing since the start of Pokemon in North America. That would make me what? 5 at the time? Anyways, I played through Blue, Red, Yellow, Gold, Silver, Crystal, and Sapphire until I was 12 or 13 and then stopped because I just got out of playing video games in general and wanted to spend more time with my friends. And I found boys.

    Then one day with my fiancee, about 3 years ago, we saw his sister playing his old Ruby version and I was like "I wanna play my old game now." Well, I went to play my Sapphire game and ended up turning it off because you can't see what you are playing without a lot of light (darned then Advance screens!!). So I just never played my old games even if I wanted to.

    Christmas comes around and my fiancee gets a slightly used DS Lite from his grandma. He finds out that Diamond and Pearl are out. So me and him make a decision to go get them. So I went and bought a pink DS Lite just for pokemon and that is all I ever use my DS for. Oh and the addiction to pokemon is back in my blood!

    I now have Diamond, whereas he has Pearl. We both have Platinum. I have SS, where he has HG. I have White and he has Black. He supports me and my poke addiction. Now I would say thats a keeper.

    From this day on, I will buy pokemon games (the main ones) until they stop making them. Oh and in regards to the anime- I'm watching all the episodes online while shiny hatching to catch up. Gotta catch em all!

    I first got into Pokemon when I was 4 in JR Kindergarten. I remember my older brother playing Yellow Version and Crystal, but I just watched. I was mainly into the Anime not the games. When the 3rd Gen came out once again I knew all of the Pokemon but I never really played too much. I knew how to just I watched instead. I can't remember the first game I actually started by my self and beat but it was probably 3 or 4 years ago.

    I was three. I remember standing in WalMart with my Dad, and he told me to pick out a game and a system. I choose the adorable little Pokemon Yellow Version. And a Purple Gameboy to go with it. I still have both on them, and they still work. I find myself digging my SP and that game out of my collection from time to time. I acquired Blue and Red soon after, at age four. I've never quit playing, and it's been fourteen years. I have every version, and every system. Pokemon FTW!!!!

    I'm also a senior in High School this year, and am very excited to be carrying a Pikachu BackPack.

    I was nine. I was actually kinda late getting into it; I didn't start playing until summer of '99, and most of the people in my class had already started getting into it long before that.

    I even had a chance to get it earlier. There was a Mario game I was looking for, and my dad and I could find it in any stores. So he said "How about you just get this Pokemon game?" and I was like "No, I don't want the Pokemon game, I want the Mario game. >.>

    It makes me laugh to think back on it. xD

    Ever wondered what would happen if humans had the power to overthrow the Legendaries? To either use them for their own ends, or eliminate them altogether? One thing is for certain...the balance between human and Legendary is unstable.

    I don't remember exactly, maybe 8 or 9 when I got Yellow. My parents didn't let me have a Gameboy for a long time because they said it was too expensive.

    I was so jealous of the other kids at school. -_-
